Frequently Asked Questions

Here I've compiled a lot of good information about the dolls I make and how to care for them. If you have more questions please feel free to contact me.

How can I buy these dolls?

Check my shop for preorders and in stock sales. If none are listed then there are no dolls currently for sale. I will announce upcoming preorders here, through my email list and on other social media outlets. Order periods usually occur every other month or once per quarter and last 2 weeks at the start of the month so I can send orders to the casting company by the end of that month. They take at least 6 months for casting the produce and sometimes longer.

Current Preorder Status

Here are all the past orders from this year, including the time they were ordered and their status. These dolls are now retired as I am coming out with a new doll line next year which means you can only buy them second hand. I will also have about 12 dolls of various sizes at MDCC for in-person sales. (scroll down for more buying info)

January - Sweetheart Juniper tan+cream and Charm Bambi cream (FULFILLED)
March - Lolli Bee cream+tan (FULFILLED)
April - Sweetheart Briar cream+tan (FULFILLED)
May - Charm Mo fair, sunkissed, cream and tan (WAITING PAINTING)
June - Lolli Murphy cream+tan (WAITING PAINTING)

As you can see, the order periods this year were held every month until June. This is so that I could get the current lines out to you hopefully by the end of the year. Usually I make the order periods more like every other month or even once per quarter. I will return to that model next year with the new doll line. I will announce upcoming preorders here, through my email list and on other social media outlets. Order periods usually last 2 weeks at the start of the month so I can send orders to the casting company by the end of that month.

How much do the dolls cost?

Prices range from $300-$800 depending on size and finish.

What are hand-painted resin ball-jointed dolls?

My dolls are ball-jointed, which means they have ball and socket articulated joints, engineered to allow for realistic poses when strung tightly with elastic. The elastic runs through the body, anchored with hooks in the feet, hands and head. They are cast in hard resin and their faces are hand-painted (this is called a "faceup").

What age is recommended?

The dolls I sculpt are professionally cast in hard resin, then hand-painted by me. They have many small parts including changeable eyes and wigs, and require careful handling and maintenance. For this reason, my dolls are intended for mature collectors only.

Who makes the dolls?

How do I care for my doll?

As much as possible you should refrain from touching the painted face to avoid damage. Dust may be removed with a soft, clean makeup brush and glass eyes polished with a barely damp clean paint brush. If the body gets dirty you can wipe it with a soft cloth (dampened if needed). For harder spots a dry magic eraser can be rubbed lightly - only on the body, never the face! Watch my "How to Series" of videos via the link below for additional tips.
