I finally knitted Sophie a hat. I planned on doing that at the start of winter, but I kinda didn't find the time to, until now.
I also like that photo, despite the fact that it was already too dark when I shot it and it got pretty grainy.

SophieOkay this journal will tell you everything you need to know about my selfmade doll, Sophie: Inspiration and Start I always loved dolls, of all kind. Then I discovered BJDs and thought they were so beautiful. I always wanted to have one, but couldn't afford it. The biggest impact on my wish to create a doll, though, was the wonderful, amazing doll-artist Marina Bychkova (~Marina-B). I've been to one of her solo exhibitions at Strychnin Gallery Berlin a few years ago, and probably lost my soul to her beautiful dolls. And so it started.

Daisy Daisy is my second self-made doll (I don't really count my very first attempts here, haha). My first one was Sophie http://fav.me/d570qbl. When making Sophie, I didn't take as many photos of the progress, which is why I wrote out everything about her making http://fav.me/d570qff. This time however, I took photos of about everything.

And this time I solved the "hair-problem" right from the start... by using Barbie hair. xD Sketches Joints and Feet Hands Arms Legs
