Okay Friends! I secured New Glass Bases and Still using the same Dome source. Also found a new and acceptable Yarn to weave her hair, so I have more colors to offer.
For the Next four months I am offering four custom Kewpie Marie Slots per month. This way I don't get burned out.
I have been making the Marie doll for about 6 years now and have made well over 100 of them as well as have taught how to make them online and in person. She has evolved over the years based on my own growth as well as the availability of supplies. I cannot duplicate most dolls 100%, the doll herself, YES. Hair texture depends on the color. I try to use vintage laces and trims, so those availabilities also change. But please know this...I am meticulous about color, scale, balance and design. Many of the tiny flowers and components are sculpted of polymer and/or paper clay. I work really hard to make a doll you will love and I will be proud of.
I make these dolls for all seasons and holidays, but the pink/cream one has always dominated. If you don't see a theme you would like, Message me. I love to created new versions for my collectors! Franken Marie is my absolute favorite. Gothic Marie was a fun new design this year. And the Christmas one really POPS!
I’ve created ocean themed, gardening, Halloween, Christmas, Alice in wonderland, mushrooms, steampunk, dogs, baking...the sky is the limit. Many of my collectors have collections of vintage that they want the Marie to tie into, which is also a fun little challenge for me.
I do limit the amount of custom sculpting to one small character though, or tiny flowers for the cake, etc. So keep that in mind. I won't be sculpting a bunch of tiny things, I work with a lot of miniatures, vintage and new that I scour the land for and often repaint to accommodate the design.
Each doll stands a total of 15-16 inches tall with the feather. They are not small dolls & I am currently using gorgeous glass domes that are hand blown in Poland. The glass bases are well made and sturdy. Look like vintage Hobnail Glass.
The colors of hair I currently have available are pink and aqua in a more textured style as you see in the photos. The original scrolly hair comes in black, yellow and turquoise. The rainbow hair I hand dye. If there is a super specific color you want, message me. I LOVE to create new designs!!!!
I have limited Pink available, Dominantly I have the more creamy pink hair, but I do have enough of a brighter cotton candy colored hair as well. I no longer have the pink that you see in the first photo.
ALSO, because I want my art accessible to everyone. I do offer a three month layaway for the Kewpie Marie Dolls. Message me if this is better option for you. Deposits are not refundable. If you want to do layaway. Message me through here or Instagram.
Septembers Custom Maries will ship by the end of the month. If you order a Halloween Doll, she will arrive in time to enjoy her all of October!
