As an artistic exercise to help "flesh out" my characters, I decided to ask each of my dolls the questions from James Lipton's questionnaire that he asks at the end of every episode of Inside The Actor's Studio. As I found out, that questionnaire is a condensed version of Marcel Proust's. So I made my own questionnaire, based upon Proust's.
Here it is, along with all of my doll's answers. Go to My albums: School Pictures to see photos of each doll.

My Muse issue number 2 dropped into my inbox a couple of days ago and I must say I have enjoyed it immensely. Whilst not all dolls featured would be my chosen type, the photography is so invention and stunningly undertaken that I simply don't mind! This magazine really is a feast for the eyes and is rather inspirational in its representation of dolls as works of art.
There's also a rather fun dress making and photography competition in this month's issue!…

My dolls provide another world in a sense. The week is long sometimes and can be tiresome. The stress tends to get to you, though we try to sail through. At times the people you deal with on a daily basis can provide a struggle that you'd be happier without.
There are plenty of good times also but on those days when you need to come home, stay home and just…Read More
