Suki visits Dolldom!

Suki is a new doll created by Elizabeth Lee in a limited edition of 400. Drawing inspiration from a wealth of genres, cultures, and periods, Suki is, in the words of her creator, "an adaptation and much needed revision of the neglected and much maligned costume doll."

Suki is hand painted with the intention of giving each doll a life and character that will be interpreted by her owner.

Created for the adult collector of unusual dolls, Suki boasts rooted hair in blonde or raven. A small number of Suki dolls will also be offered with wigs.

Suki's body is based on the sculpt of Sebino's Bettina and is such represents a young teenager. Yet, Suki lends herself to being dressed as a younger child. Suki is a play doll who loves to be dressed and redressed. Do you like to sew? Suki will be the perfect model. And if you prefer modern styles, Suki will certainly model them well. Homemade hand knits? Bring them on! Vintage styles? Perfect on Suki! Suki is intended to be a doll to dress and play with - and make things for, no matter how simple. And she is a nice size for this at 17 inches, not too small, not too big.

Suki is cross cultural, according to Ms. Lee, and her skin tone was carefully selected to be very ambivalent - she can be Asian, Latino, Indian, or anything you chose. Ms. Lee hopes that Suki will appeal to a wide range of collectors for Suki is full of love!

Dark Victories

The last time that Mel Odom's "Hollywood Canteen" Ivy Jordan produced by JAMIEshow Dolls visited Dolldom, the star of Monolithic Studios and gal pal to Miss Gene Marshall, portrayed the quintessential blonde glamour queen.

Today, Miss Jordan relishes modeling beautiful fashions chosen to complement her dark hair styles. For as Miss Jordan herself expressed: "Brunettes and redheads have as much fun, maybe even more than blondes! In all truth, the secret is a combination of character and wit." Dolldom could not agree more with Miss Jordan, whose stupendous face sculpt is one of Mel Odom's favorites. For Miss Jordan can remind us of the great Greta Garbo in one shot and of the energetic Rosalind Russell in another. And that ladies and gentleman is a gift that becomes evident in the accompanying portfolio. Quite a victory for dark hair shades!

In a dark brown "Violet" wig cap, Ivy Jordan models a Retros suit made with a vintage nubby knit and recycled fur. The dark hair brings out her glamorous blue eye shadow.

Contrasting Points! The blouse of "Green with Envy", produced by Ashotn-Drake for Mr. Odom's Madra Lord, tops a sexy mini sequined dress by Liz Cole for Retros. The black wig cap's side curls repeat the circular motif.

Baby, Blue? Yes, and a Titian hard cap with by Time of Doll. Miss Jordan's cocktail dress is a fantasy of flocked organza and was made by Liz Cole for Retros. Pearl jewelry by VJT Designs.

Fiery Dame! In "Spotted in Manhattan" Madra Lord's red wig cap, Miss Jordan shines in "A Cool Breeze in Vegas" Oona's sheath and a recycled fur coat by Joshard. Earrings by Joy Jarred.

Red, red and more red. Mix one "Sophia" wig cap in auburn with a luminous cherry red silk satin dress by Liz Cole for Retros for a most intoxicating combination. Pearl jewelry by VJT Designs adds a cooling touch.

Asian Airs. In an ash brown bob hard cap wig by Time of Doll and a vintage brocaded silk sheath by Liz Cole, Miss Jordan is in the mood for love. Peacock necklace by Joy Jarred.
