I mostly sew for BJDs, but when a dear friend of mine asked me to sew for her new line of dolls, I couldn’t wait to get started.
College Savings Dolls are wonderful dolls with realistic body proportions. Check out their site as well. 😀
In preparation for the Chicago Toy and Game fair, she requested career-based clothes for the girls.
I started out with a fairly basic skirt and sweater, and then created the sundress and cardigan. I’ll also be working on nurse and doctor scrubs.
A few weeks ago, a friend of mine linked me to a photostory on Den of Angels showing an SD-size doll receiving a doll of her own. When I first saw the story, I didn’t think a whole lot about it – it was cute as a photostory, but that was it at the time.
Over the next few weeks, my friend starts talking more and more about this newer company.. how the little dolls have bodies with SD10 proportions (which I absolutely love!), and how they can wear Lati Yellow/PKF/Blythe clothes.
I finally gave up and decided to find out more about these little dolls and what company is making them. (Gee, thanks Kiyono!)
After looking around on DoA and Facebook, I found the company: MaskCat Doll.
OMG! The special size dolls are so stinkin’ cute! At 21cm, they are a bit taller than PKF, and with the immature proportions, they can still wear some of the same clothes.
I’m absolutely head-over-heels for Ceci. Seriously, check out her adorableness!
And they are currently running a promotion for tan skin until July 16! The tan skin is a lovely color compared to the normal skin.. Check out Aruna in both skintones – it’s a great picture to show the body sculpt as well. <3
I actually just found out that they also offer a 2-part layaway on their website. Woot! That is really tempting – especially since they are offering their girls in tan skin for a limited time.
There are also 60cm girls available. I have heard rumors of a 60cm Ceci… and am secretly crossing my fingers. 😉
A friend of mine had a fantastic idea of creating dolls with realistic proportions for girls to play with. Not only are the dolls part of the play, but the idea behind it all is also promoting saving for their college education.
College Savings Dolls says it best right on their website. One doll with two big ideas!
I’m honored to have been asked to create some of the career clothing and additional outfits as prototypes. Unfortunately, these first rounds of clothing need to be done this week – so it’s going to be a fairly quick turn around.
I’m hoping I can use some of my existing patterns for BJDs, but if not, at least I can modify them. 🙂 Look for pictures later in the week – hoping for a few quick pieces to be whipped up.
In the mean time – a couple quick pictures of the dolls themselves. Loving them and I totally can’t wait to see them for sale on the market!
