The Guillotines - Pair of Dressed OOAK dolls

This commission order was to make two interpretations of Marie Antoinette theme using FR Agnes dolls.

The Brunette has edgy make up of purple smoky eyes and nude lips with a heart shaped beauty mark upon her right cheek. Her hair is a wild mountain of curls with one sensual corkscrew caressing her neck. She wears a modern interpretation of the Marie Antoinette silhouette gown in checked silk dupion and a black tulle veil.

The Blond has a soft make up with rosy lips and light lashes, and carries a heart shaped beauty mark upon her blushed cheek. Her hair is a pompadour and she wears a classic Robe a la Fran├žoise in silk brocade and chiffon.

Quetzalcoatl - emiliacouture commission

Emiliacouture presents: Quetzalcoatl the feathered serpent. This dressed Sybarite repaint was named after a Mesoamerican deity and commission inspiration was to create a "couture dinosaur".

The doll is Sybarite Ivory and she has received a full repaint with pulpy green lips, baby blue eyes with eye shadow in warm shades of brown and applied double lashes with gradient dye from black to titian.  

She wears an OOAK emiliacouture creation in dark shades of green, blue, gold and salmon. The snake skin leatherette outfit consists of a Mugler inspired armour dress with a removable feathered trail, a huge ruffle of iridescent feathers, bondage cuffs and a pair of shoes with a new snake motif design.

Bride of Frankenstein - dressed OOAK doll

It's the Paris Fashion Doll Festival this weekend and I'm sure I'm not alone wishing I could be there. I made a dressed OOAK doll for the PFDF charity auction, but as promised I have made another doll to console those who can't be there in person. So, without further ado, emiliacouture presents the Bride of Frankenstein! It's alive!!!

This doll's inspiration was a cross between early silent films and Marvel superheros. The gown is an ethereal and sensual nightgown with daring lace garters showing from thigh high slits in the heavy flowing skirt of white and grey. The grey shoes share the art nouveau inspired heel sculpt with the LA Belle Epoque doll I made for PFDF. The doll is repainted Brides of Dracula Lucy, hair restyled in a partial updo, greying body blushing with darkened veins and a autopsy scar echoing the one on Shame from my 2010 Until Death Do Us Part collection.

*Note: In some photos the shoes are white, but those were there only so that I could do the main photoshoot while the grey shoes especially made for the outfit were still in the making.

La Belle Epoque - PFDF 2012


 I created this OOAK lingerie doll for the La Belle Epoque theme of Paris Fashion Doll Festival (PFDF) 2012. I was inspired by the decorative style of the time, Art Nouveau and by the it's father Alphonse Mucha.

The doll is a customised Integrity Toys Lana from the Hollywood Royalty line. The doll has been rerooted with a fiery 3-tone Saran mix and given a complete repaint. I added super long lashes and gave them a gradient dye from black roots to titian tips. She also got a new Nu.Face body with blushing and Art Nouveau inspired snake tattoos.

The fashion consists of a burgundy tulle blouse embellished with silk ribbons; a corset made of orange vintage lace with Art Nouveau patterns, lined with yellow silk, adorned with ribbons and 8 garters with golden buckles; yellow silk panties; a pair of teal green net stockings; burgundy gradient effect shoes with hand carved Art Nouveau inspired heels; and as a cherry on the top a huge La Belle Epoque style hat of burgundy silk and tulle, adorned with teal green net strips and feathers.

The doll will be sold on a silent charity auction of PFDF  2012- The auction takes place at the  Mezzanine of the hotel NOVOTEL on Saturday, March 10th at 11.00am. The proceeds of the auction will be donated to the charity REVES (French version of Grant a Wish).

P.S. For those of you who cannot be there at PFDF to see this doll in person I  have another doll that I will reveal during the festival weekend. Keep posted! :)
