There's No Comfort Zone....

If you're a maker of original, individually sculpted dolls, who enjoys working to commission in more than one scale, actually there's not really such thing as a comfort zone...the different challenges are part of the fun.

This little group of 1/24th characters are all completely different - different challenges, even different centuries!

First up is a Scotsman - a character you may have seen before as he's one of my most poular. I've photographed him alongside a sweet little laddie I fell in love with in a charity shop recently. I'll guess he's a 1950s/60s 'Present From Scotland'  - but it's unusual to see a proper boy's face in dolls like this and although his kilt is threadbare and he's lost his bagpipes I don't mind a bit. Which reminds me - my Scot needs some bagpipes.

This little lady has gone to U.S.A to run an Olde Tea Shoppe.

I like to think this this rather down at heel old boy probably knew Charles Dickens.

She's a Vampire! I'd love to see what final setting she's destined for.....

...but then there's a Mummy too!

I can't wait to see what I'll be asked to make next!

Thanks for Looking
