Heidi Ott lady new clothes.

When all orders are sent, can take a break and finally write a new post about my favorite doll. The other day I came back from the post office, sent orders, and decided to clean up the workplace. While I was laying out the yarn and the needles and putting the dolls on the shelf, I thought……and which one I like more. Or so, for which of them is it more interesting to me to make clothes?)4230

More often this is the doll for which the next order is made) or the doll that is new or just recently I had.
But in my collection, there is a doll that makes me want to make clothes for real customers. And this doll is a woman from Heidi Ott.

Her is not comparable to the mobility of BJD dolls and my dear baby lati white and I can not yet compare the lady doll from Heidi Ott with other dolls made for doll houses. Nevertheless, its mobility is great. And it is very important to me that any poses that this doll takes are very natural. In the women-doll by Heidi Ott delicately played the Golden mean: they do not have deliberate puppetry, a primitive dolls of other brands, specially produced for doll houses. The Creator managed to avoid and emphasized naturalism. That’s it for this she is my favorite doll.
Creating realistic clothes for this doll requires special attention and patience. This does not mean that other dolls and their outfits, I am not carefully) Just a Lady from Heidi Ott very fragile and any fitting specified great accuracy.

For her, I have created many sets of clothes. Many I sometimes repeat at the request of customers. The new collection is quite small and consists of dresses and several sweaters, which I think are quite nice and interesting.
So….attention to the screen….fashion show begins.5823

In June, my favorite berry is Strawberry) It is sweet and the most beautiful, with white dots and bright green leaves. And what her flavor)))))!!! It is impossible to pass by and not to buy a basket of fresh and ripe berries!012

The mood becomes amazing and for a long time in the air is kept sweet aroma. Oh))) while I wrote, already salivating flowed))) what am I)?

At the very beginning of June, along with the aroma of strawberries, a Strawberry doll came to me. My dear Lisa sent it to me from Canada. So I don’t torment her with requests for size.)))icm_fullxfull.149946340_1e5ojzgltokksg4gw40s

To this day, I saw this doll just for the photos from Lisa and the pictures on the Internet.

icm_fullxfull.161733644_50uk4zqu2a4oc00k4ossicm_fullxfull.165974845_8snhct011x4wgss4880oicm_fullxfull.154452356_js85nrf90z4ock4sw04cicm_fullxfull.161727478_o63s428e9dwkk08swc8s

When I opened the package, I looked funny eyes and a sly smile. “Hello,” she said. I Berry strawberry. I saw your dresses and I want to live in your workshop.” Hi: – I replied. Will you make me beautiful dresses? she asked. Of course my good doll, I answered with excitement.strawberry-shortcake-dolls-1980s

To get acquainted with the strawberry, I read some stories about creating this doll series, and I really liked them. In Russia, it is still not familiar. I’m sure she can find her fans. I will show you a photo and give only the most interesting facts about the creation of these wonderful dolls.Large-Lot-of-Vintage-Strawberry-Shortcake-Dolls-Pets

So … Charlotte-strawberry-licensed character, the rights to which the company has American Greetings Corporation. The history of Strawberry Shortcake began in 1977. in Cleveland, when” the girl-cake ” came up with the Illustrator of greeting cards Muriel Farion. It was a little girl with freckles, dressed in a dress with the image of strawberries and strawberries. These cards for girls have become so popular that they decided to sell dolls strawberries. And later it was filmed animated film, the main characters of which were the doll strawberry and her friends.   The old dolls Kenner, dated 1979. have hard hair, thin and protruding in all directions. Apparently so, each outfit is complemented by a must-have accessory — a hat)))     Each heroine Strawberry Shortcake has its own occupation in the city of berries.  Charlotte strawberry works in a coffee shop. Malinka is a fashion designer. Blueberry’s a librarian. Cream teaches dance. Lemon the Barber. Orange is working in a flower shop. strawberryshortcake58

Hurray! I’m going on vacation tomorrow. And before I leave, I want to make a small announcement of what awaits you after my brief trip to the sea and the sun.58488ec0b474edc80c0f0

Quite unexpectedly for me, Petit Blythe was a very popular doll among my regular and new customers. So I’ve already made some new dresses and sets.IMG_5051

I bought another Petit Blythe. The new doll is a little darker than her girlfriend. Her eyes don’t close.

This doll from the company Hasbro. It differs in a few more details. The head is movable and I really like it, but the Legs, unfortunately, do not bend, and it’s a little sad(pd5073

Like last time, I replaced the wig. The new image seems more beautiful to me.5139bs5076IMG_5055

And most important! I was thinking, what are the names of the dolls my clients have? I never asked them, but now I’m interested.

And while I’m collecting doll names, I’m supposed to be getting ready. Let’s start with the letter A. How many names in the world start with this letter? A great many! And if your doll has a name starting with the letter A……you can order a personal sweater or dress.
My model for this collection is a doll from Heidi Ott lady. Create clothes for her I really like.alice5161

Dolls, which I “saved” on Ebay)))

Good day my dear readers. I am very grateful to all for the comments and kind words to my little stories. Today’s story is about “rescued” dolls. It’s humor, of course, but I really liked the comment of one of my clients. After a long day of work, which sometimes ends at almost midnight or later, I love to browse through lots of doll sales on Ebay. Often these night vigils end with shopping. Sometimes I even win auctions, if one or another lot I really want to have. And the most important thing is that very rarely happen frustration after shopping. I’ll show you my latest purchases. Perhaps will be a little more photos than usual. I’ll start in order. First, from the UK came here a couple of small plastic dolls Edi. They arrived, as it was prescribed in perfect condition.IMG_5445

The kids are very cute and resemble a family of Danish villagers.
After them, came here is a “pearl” in my collection. The pupa is porcelain, with an amazing face and a blue bow. Unfortunately, her legs are connected, but the comforting that her handles are moving and give me the opportunity later to dress it.IMG_5453IMG_5455

While writing this post, it seems that they all arrived one after another))) But of course the spaces between their arrival gave me time to wonder and enjoy their beauty and magic.
Farther! A whole family’s here. and all these pupae were also in good condition and marked Shildkrot. I believe that many people are very familiar with this brand of German plastic dolls. Here’s a quick photo on arrival.IMG_5423

Then already I partition and washed them. Cleaned off the dirt and landed on the couch for a photoshoot) two of them are 10 centimeters in size and one 8.5 centimeters in size. He later received a gorgeous sailor suit. As many of you know, the nautical theme in doll clothes is my favorite theme. And many dolls of my collection have marine outfits.4973

And at the end of my story, there’s something funny and interesting. Past this of a couple of I could not pass. The faces and the size of these babies touched me in the heart. The authors are unknown to me. and the seller also has no idea who created this miracle. But it is important that they are and they are adorable.4996

Petite Blyth.

I was always afraid of these dolls, and I didn’t plan on buying them. But the little doll I took the risk to buy. It was important for me to understand if I could make clothes for her. And, finally, she is in my home. I will make a reservation at once, I bought not the original. But now I think, that need to buy and “the right” doll. Blythe (in English transcription of Blythe) is a collectible doll with a disproportionately large head in relation to the body, inside of which is hidden a mechanism that allows you to change the color of the eyes and the direction of gaze. brandymallory1350244295

A little bit of history and facts about Blythe.

Blythe doll was born in 1971 in Marvin glass Studio in Chicago, Illinois and was originally intended for children.  The first Blyth was produced by the American company Kenner (Kenner), now this doll is better known as Kenner Blythe or vintage Blythe. In 1972, production ceased due to lack of demand. In the same 1972, the Blythe doll was produced in parallel, and in the Japanese market by the company Tomy (Tomy), but also had no success, and the production of it was discontinued. Now-dolls release 1972 from Kenner and Tom are very rare, valued by collectors and are expensive.

Production of dolls resumed only in June 2001 already in Japan by Takara (Takara), which received a production license from Hasbro (Hasbro) new version of dolls Blythe – Neo Blythe (Neo Blythe). 23rd June 2001 is the day of the revival of Blythe, in honor of this event every year in June/July issued a limited-edition commemorative doll Blythe, which has a more complex elaboration of the image.0_afe6f_9f215a0_L

Another company that received a license for the release of Blaze from Hasbro (Hasbro) in America in 2004 was the company Ashton Drake (Ashton Drake Galleries, abbreviation ADG). ADG Blythe-in fact this doll reproductions the 1972 version from Kenner, but more modestly dressed and inexpensive. The license for the release of dolls ended in 2009.TB2PQlMXwL8F1JjSsphXXXknVXa_!!1783262272

Thus, Blythe doll was produced at different times by different companies:

1972-American company Kenner (Kenner)
1972-Japanese company Tomi (Tomy)
2001 and to this day-the Japanese company Takara (Takara). These dolls are popular among collectors, they can be purchased in our store collection dolls in the appropriate section of the catalog.
2004-2009 – American company Ashton Drake (Ashton Drake Galleries)

This information will be useful to those who want to have such a doll.

At the moment, under the brand name Takara dolls are produced on three scales, but I will not go far into them. My baby doll is the smallest. Doll Petit Blythe (Petit Blythe) height 11.5 centimeters released. d39cccaf2d03

The face of the doll is covered with a glossy coating, no eyebrows. The doll’s body is frosted. The hair is stitched into a soft scalp that is glued to the head.

 

I not immediately has become to change this image and a long time my baby was here is such a. The majority of Blythe very simple makeup – eyeshadow, blush, and lipstick on her lips.IMG_5080

The mobility of Blythe’s body is limited by the rotation of the head, waist, arms and legs rotate in up-and-down directions, but do not divorce to the sides. Hand dolls are not bent legs Blaise bent at the knees a few clicks.il_570xN.1441639477_qn52

As my fascination with dolls already has a considerable age), I got some wigs. So I decided to change the image of the doll and tried on her new wig. I think he was better suited to the pale skin of this girl.43914541il_570xN.1440860276_7j8o

The initiator of the professional holiday was made by the Iranian theater worker Divad Zolfagariho. In 2000, the XVIII Congress of the International Union of figures of the theatre of dolls has considered this proposal. But the question of the place and time of the celebration remained unresolved. At the meeting of the UNIMA international Council in 2003, the participants agreed on the date of the event. The festival has received wide support and spreading around the world.IMG_2873

The first mention of the puppet theater was depicted in Ancient Egypt. During the holidays, women went from one settlement to another with songs. In the hands, they wore special figurines of the thread by which the last move. Such dolls are still made in Latin America and Syria.

Thanks to archaeologists and their work, we can learn how the celebrations were held in the 16th century BC. The puppeteer was not only in Egypt but also in Greece and Ancient Rome. Someone came up with splitting the box in half to symbolize peace. With such products, puppeteers went to Europe and showed their performances.

Later boxes were added to the scenery, it helped to mark the location of the depicted actions. However, admired not only decoration and elegance introducing the dolls. At all times, the work of a man who forced his wards to “revive” in his skillful hands was appreciated.к5

There is a traditional puppet theater in every corner of the world and, like hundreds of years ago continues to amuse and surprise its audience.

Today I received in the mail my new dolls. It seems I’m becoming a collector))) About them, I will tell you in one of the next posts. All the more that news I have there are very many!!IMG_5413

After a long absence I’m back))) Hello! the story I’m going to tell you today ended surprisingly well. I was very nervous and was waiting for a letter from a client. So, will talk about order.
Some time ago, Mary stopped by my shop. She long chose and asked questions about this or that dress. I asked her what she was looking for and how I could help her.She needed two little dresses for dolls. We began to think and choose the right yarn and style. And then Mary sent me a picture of the dolls. Not hide, I was very surprised these photo)) Such models I still not seen, although for many years worked with different dolls and even by small dogs!
Here is this photo!IMG_0154IMG_0153

Mary wrote that these old salt shakers. They are already 100 years old! Imagine my excitement and surprise. It was necessary to dress up these respectable ladies in outfits that suit them by age and beauty)
The difficulty was that their body had a small stand and so I had to adjust the style and to think of how to do it.
we decided to make a simple style with buttons on the back. Work has brought me great fun and turned out so well….
