Doll No.15, in progress.
Oh, little Fifteen. This is a doll I bought with undisclosed damage; a previous owner had sanded the entire surface of this head with wood-grade sandpaper, leaving very deep scratches all over it. I even had a friend who makes garage kits attempt a restoration. She tried her best but she couldn’t completely buff out the damage without removing a considerable amount of the sculpting detail… so Fifteen remains damaged.
And sometimes faults can become inspiration.
Fifteen will have a keyhole “eyepatch” that will eventually have a turnable key sticking out from it. Her other eye will be left hollow.
No.15 is a Volks SD13 Nana
Miniature framed portraits for one of my doll display scenes (each is aprox. 3”x4.5” including frame). I couldn’t resist making a detail like this for the background.
These are 18th century portrait paintings with my dolls’ faces edited into them, for fun. ;)
I found Edrich when I went to Nakano Broadway in Tokyo, and he followed me around Japan.

Now we’re back home in Canada! :)
When I was in Tokyo last week, I walked into the Azone shop in Akihabara, and I walked out with a XS Pure Neemo base body and a blank head. I spent today giving him a haircut and a face!
Pure Neemo are so adorable… I think I need to make more of these. *w*
