Halloween 2014 - Edward Gorey's Mistresses of Mystery

What is Halloween without a doll display showing a theme inspired by Edward Gorey's dark and dubious works of humor? Gotta love his ladies and their fashions and their expressions and their naughty deeds



Let Halloween Begin

AM is new to body blushing but her end results show perfection! (Click on pics

Three cheers for the Maglio girls. Such style!!!!!

Along came a spider - wait - it was MEL!

Doll Chateau creates the most enticing. elongated dolls. An acquired taste. Wait and see. And then along came Mel. Words can not described her and yes she is an acquired taste. Thank you AM for doing her wonderful body blushing and fashion. XO

Springtime Hollylocks

Collectors wax and wane in doll choices. The Lasher dolls initially seemed too little bold girly for me.
                                      UNTIL I purchased Lydia Grimsley\

Lydia Grimsley

The resin quality, the detailing, the posing, the fashions ALL stellar -

When Kim herself offered the 8" Lollipop Holly a month ago

I decided to add her. Kim contacted me to say she would be willing to have her fashion designer do a little spring dress for me if I would like. Since it is spring - I agreed! Christmas Holly became Hollylocks! : ) Since more time was needed to process, Kim generously offered two other wigs for the doll. BUT - Hollylocks is an adorable brunette with deep brown glass eyes and will stay that way - never to be re-dressed or redone!

Wild Wednesday

(click on pics to enlarge for viewing)
About six inches of snow out there. More coming. Plows. Shovels. Scarves and Snow boots. So what's so wild about THIS Wednesday?
Besides the faux fur trim on my pajamas? NOTHING. Sigh.

Little Red Cap

It took a long, long time to add this doll to my Kish kid line. Found one NRFB on Ebay and added her to Drearydom. Can't figure out the attachment method for the two light brown lace collars - if that is indeed what they are!

Little Red Cap

A little twist on the classic fairy tale of Little Red Riding Hood, Little Red Cap refers to an earlier title and embodies a new interpretation of the character (the third) from Kish and Company. Riley as Little Red Cap stands 7.5 inches tall though she is bent forward slightly as she strides through the forest. She wears a long sleeved cotton underdress with a colorful jumper with an embroidered purple felt bodice and a full cotton skirt (floral patterns on a black background). Her jaunty boots are red with black trim and buttons and true to her name, she wears a red felt cap over her dark brown circlet braids. Yet another twist is the knapsack she carries on her back. It holds a topsy doll with Granny on one end and Wulfie on the other, in place of the usual edibles. Watch out Little Red Cap! (The topsy sculpts are resin with a cloth body)
