I have been working hard on my craft since 2004, and I think I have a skill level that shows in my work. I am the do over queen and there are many heads without bodies to suggest that these mistakes drive me to the perfect end. The finished doll always seems to lead to the next doll, one is born out of another. This is why I love making dolls. It is the air I breathe and pretty much defines me. I am a doll maker.

This may sound strange but these bodiless heads and headless bodies speak to me. I have control over the parts and pieces individually, but the position involved in the connection is revealed at the moment the pieces touch one another for the first time. The head moves me to sew it in a certain pose, same with the hands and arms. The whole doll forms itself to be expressive according to its idea of itself.

'elle c'est Dominer'

Here she is.
She came from an act of expression . . .A need to release an emotion . . .
and she told me what she is . . . a Domme

Not a Whip . . .

Well if the laws in Alabama don't get me I am sure some lightening bolt will . . .She has this power over me and I must do her wishes.But I stop at making a doll for her to abuse.

I had started this doll a couple of months ago and had to set her aside. I couldn't grasp the direction to take her.The only thing that worked on her was the bustier or corset that I had made. Her head did not even work. So she was sent to the closet . . .But with some encouraging words and a wine bottle to form the shape of the skirt, I have a new direction. What she seems to be telling me is she is the dominant force here and I will do what she wants, because she will not go back in to the closet. . . . Do I dare add a whip?

'Sittin in Blue Jeans'

So here is the finished doll.I made his hair out of 18 gauge aluminum wire which I coiled up around a dowel.
The only way I could figure out how to attach the coils to the doll was by putting a big screw in his head. . . . Ouch that had to hurt!

'Sittin in Blue Jeans'

No more nakedness.I am working on finishing the shoes, and his shirt needs a collar.I will probably do the hair last after the dreaded sewing the body parts onto the body. Kind of like the legs not being crossed.

'Sittin in Blue Jeans'

So his flaired blue jeans are done. And he has a great casual, laid back feel about him.He's coming along. Sometimes getting the right body angle that looks natural can be a challenge. Somehow, if he doesn't fall over, I feel that he must be in the right position.
