A Tribute to Babydoll

To my dearest Babydoll, I've been planning this tribute for quite a long time. Almost for as long as you've been gone. I miss you all the time. I think about you every day. You are always in my heart.  I know that a blog post, with a picture of a doll and a mini version of you would all be quite meaningless to you, as well as unnecessary; we always knew how we felt about each other, a "bonded pair." And as I type this, I realize how ridiculous this whole project has been, but I needed to do it.
For anyone interested in the nuts&bolts:
*mini Babydoll -felted sculpture by Sharon of DreamwoodArtDesigns on etsy; commissioned for me by my better half, supercooldollhouse
*quarter-scale Sybarite fashion doll is Venus by Superdoll London
*her frilled sheer blouse is "vintage" Superdoll London
*her dress was originally by Robert Tonner New York, but has been customized by me for the shoot
*her polka-dot pumps are FBR by Superdoll London
*her wig is my creation
*the setting is an ingenious room box designed by supercooldollhouse, customized by me for the shoot (custom walls of hand-dyed fabric with miniature portraits in custom frames, custom hand-painted floor, custom window frame and drapery, custom shelves filled with miniatures, some collected and some created, chaise by Bespaq reupholstered and customized, unusual footstool by me)


  1. Thanks for sharing this supercool setting. Very impressive.

  2. Just beautiful! And those of us with our own "Babydoll" family members can identify with this lovely tribute.
