I really don’t know why i love dolls so much. I guess because they can be actors, voices for different stories in my head and because they are embodied. maybe that’s it. And their tactile qualities. And although I love all dolls, including traditional dolls, my special love is what most people would call strange dolls. The subpages in this category are dolls I have made. I hope to add more soon.

some doll sites I like are:
