The charity auction for the 2016 Madrid Fashion Doll Show is getting closer! On September 30th you’ll be able to start biding on a lot of amazing dolls and all the profits will benefit Un juguete, una ilusión.
Today let me introduce you to another one of the dolls that have been donated to this charity. This is “Anjali” by Sebastian Atelier. “Anjali” means ” one who loves the soul of peaple and things “. She wears an evening dress inspired by the indian sari. This gown is in fushia taffeta haloed at the bottom by curvilinear designs embroidered with silver sequins and beads. The top consists of many petals worked assymmetrically et remembers the petals of the lotus. Each one was made and embroidered by hand.
A long scarf is born on her shoulders and ends in a cascade of flowers blossom and a peacock feather embroidered also with silver and beads sequins.
Her face was fully painted with professional acrylic paint and varnish. To accentuate her sweet look, “Anjali” wears eyelashes. Her raven hair is collected to form a high ponytail surrounded by a tress. Over a silver metal crown gives her a princely air.
“Anjali” will be shipped in her box with her certificate of authenticity signed by the artist and her doll stand. Original sketch included!
All accessories and the embroideries are handmade by the artist Sebastian Atelier. Outfit fully lined and cannot takes away from the doll.
The original doll is Silkstone Lingerie 3.

A lot of people keep asking about body comparison images of Luna doll by AndyMy Designs as she’s a 13 inch doll. Marcelo Jacob has just sent this image to me and now you can see how tall she is compared to Barbie, FR 16, Jem and FR 2.
My dear friend (yes, I have a LOT of friends in the dolly world) Francesco Catalano is back with a gorgeous doll he created for the Madrid Fashion Doll Show charity auction. Her name is Sumatra and she reminds me of the stunning Tribal Beauty Barbie doll. I love her details, the mix of cultural elements and her beautiful face. So stunning!
Ber sure to check back here in a few days for more details about the dolls that will be auctioned on behalf of the MFDS.
You must all be now acquainted with my talented friend Andy, the man behind the Luna Dolls. At the beggining of this month he also launched a beautiful collection for 12 inch doll at the Madrid Fashion Doll Show. The collection is called “Trip to Madrid” and you can find it on his website.
Btw, the Luna Dolls are now on sale for just $155! You will not regret buying them or any other AndyMy creations. Great quality, amazing design!
One of my current favorite OOAK doll artists is Alberto Celano aka Betoral. He is an incredibly talented artist from Spain that has impressed me with his detailed work, amazing beading and painting talent and overall look and feel of his creations.
He is now working with my friend Susan from DollGenie.com and their second collaboration is this beautiful “ESPAÑA” OOAK doll that is now available for sale.
I met Servando Hernandez of Livin’ Plastic Dolls online when he message me about his OOAK dolls. His incredible skills and amazing creations made me fall in love with his work right away. Then, at his year’s Madrid Fashion Doll Show I got a chance to meet him in person and also see another part of his artistic talent.
He is from Mexico, has graduated the Fine Arts school as an industrial designer (just like me!), he’s 24 and has painted all his life. His first artistic love is now combined with his second one, “plastic arts”, and he’s trying to use his academic specializing in sculpt and fashion pattern design to create beautiful OOAK dolls.
When we sat at the same table at MFDS he gifted each of us (including Carlyle Nuera) an amazing Barbie paiting. Each painting was different and all of them are hand painted on a canvas with a mixed technique. I got the Stefano Canturi Barbie and I’m now waiting for it to be framed. It will look amazing in my room.
And speaking of his OOAK dolls, check out his Cara Delevingne A B I T O . B I A N C O OOAK doll. I saw her live at MFDS and she’s stunning!
browsing Facebook I can across this uber cute doll created by an OOAK designer I haven’t heard of before. The doll is inspired by the now classic Disney movie “Frozen” and she uses one of my favorite Barbie face sculpts. Such a cute girl! You can visit the artist’s page HERE.

An Instagram user has posted yesterday an image of the upcoming 2017 Fashionistas Ken doll and they look really good! I can see Carlye’s hand as I know he loves using new and different molds. Now if we can only made that hair real, they would be perfect.
