Regular visitors to my blog will know that I am a huge fan of articulation in my dolls and like to keep a keen eye out on any developments in this field. To this end I had my sights on JAMIEshow dolls, available through the fantastic Angelic Dreamz, for sometime. However until recently I was not as taken with the face-ups as much as I was with their amazing physiques.
That changed when I came upon their St Tropez range of…Read More

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!…

"Like a Goddess... no excuses!
Bright magenta hose, and multicolour corset embroidered in harlequin grid…

With the demise of Haute Doll some time ago it is with great delight that I got to have a look at the latest fashion doll magazine in town. From what I have seen things look very promising!
From the Sybarite cover star to the high fashion style shots we had come to know and love from HD this definitely helps fill the hole it left. I do therefore hope this magazine will be here to stay. Be sure to check it out and subscribe by print, digital and soon to be released ipad/iphone…Read More
