... phew, that's a looooong title and it's the name of the next toy that I'm going to show you.
Awhile ago I decided to throw caution to the wind and sent an email with some shameless self promotion to all of the people at the studio where I work. I thought "What the hell! What's the worst that can happen? No one liking my toys... Impossible!" :P
Surprisingly enough, I got some orders! Hurrah!
... An here's the very first one I made, a princess faily ballerina.
To the people that read my blog regularly (if there's anyone in the world that does that... I am a fan of yours), you might have noticed that I'm not much of a doll person. Maybe it's because I only had a couple of them in my childhood or my auntie's freakish collection of porcelain dolls, I've never really been attracted to them. So, this was a bit of a challenge for me.
When I was first asked to make this doll, it was meant to be a ballerina for a little girl who loves ballet, then it evolved to a fairy ballerina and finally I thought that I might as well make her a princess, just in case that was the next request. It was a bit of a bummer not being asked to add on lion tamer, trapeze artist and doctor as I think that it would have made the doll cooler :)
