Do you love altering dolls? I have a book packed full of amazing designs that is sure to make you drool as much I as I am. The Doll Scene: An International Collection of Crazy, Cool, Custom Designed Dolls. Here is just one of the adorable pages of eye-candy featuring and Edward Scissorhands doll by Rougedolls.
I think my favorite part is the doll is the cut paper hands. This book isn't released yet but you can pre-order it and you can get yourself in the running for an early advance at Goodreads.
More about the Rockport book:
by Louis Bou
The Doll Scene features hundreds of custom-created dolls by the hands of some of the best artists worldwide using mainly original Blythe, Pullip, Ball Jointed Dolls, Dal, or Monster High dolls as “raw material” to generate their lovely and stunning characters. These dolls have an oversized head and large eyes that change colors!
Changing everything from the original serialized doll— hair, makeup, reshaping faces, adding new eyelashes, eyelids and clothing— the artists featured in The Doll Scene create some truly amazing figures.
