dolls

Frida

I don’t like to do the same dolls over and over again.  I get bored too easy and prefer a fresh new challenge each time I create.  I made a few Frida’s last year which are always popular, such is the power of Ms Kahlo!  A few weeks back I was asked by one of my Instagram friends if I could possibly make a Frida for her.  I don’t usually do commissions, they put me under pressure.  I always work best when I have free rein but the time was right to start a new Frida, so I said yes.  I love Frida Kahlo’s way of dressing and her hair.  Such fun to recreate her amazing red satin boots (do Google her real ones, they are fabulous!!). Recreating her false leg or blue satin embroidered top are little details that I love to do too.  Here are some photos of her. She’s now complete and ready to go!
