Hand-crafted Dolls

Long (~39cm)

Tally (~38cm)

My first hand-crafted dolls, Tally and Long.
Each of them have their very own characteristic/ personality. Other than giving them names, I do not wish to dictate clearly each of their character, but rather leave it to imagination whilst giving them just enough personality. They are individually hand-crafted from their body parts to their costumes. The body parts are individually paper-mache and then joined together, thus I still make use of my desire to recycle, yet at the same time allow life-like movable joints. As the dolls are pretty small, each of the costumes, from their hat to shoes have to be hand-sewn.
