Beautiful Protection

As spring arrives and the sun shines brighter over Dolldom, faces of all colors and genders will be wearing the very best protection against those pesky UV rays. Cris Thorngate beauty maven at Kiehl's recently won us all over with her expert advise on the very latest and most effective sun protection and skin nourishment. Lucky for you, we will share the ingredients of her magic concoction. 
Et voilà la formule: Kiehl's Vital Sun Protection, Crème d' Élégance, and Tinted Moisturizer used together will give you both a natural glow and the peace of mind needed to enjoy the season.
 Barbie uses Tinted Moisturizer in Light and applies it over Crème d' Élégance, her favorite for its super rich and almost buttery goodness that imparts her flawless complexion with a moist finish.
Freundlich applies Vital Sun Protection liberally, then mixes a dollop of Crème with three drops of Tinted Moisturizer in Light on the palms of his hands and then massages the balm all over his rugged face.
 Bambola mixes the three magic potions to save time and then applies, letting its rich emollients pamper her skin before doing her eyes and lips.

We know that you will agree that this skincare combo does give our fab models that sexy natural glow, even after stressful days and playful nights.

For personalized care and great tips visit Cris at Kiehl's.

The Cabinet of Dr. Yatabazah

As obsessive compulsive freaks who would much rather stop breathing than take a photo of a doll with fly-away hair, we at Dolldom were not only validated but also inspired when we found a human being who paid as much attention to scale and precision in hairstyling.

It was late one night, while surfing the web that we came across a series of mouthwatering photographs that told a story - incomplete and addictive - about glamour, hair, and the mysteries inherent to both. The mastermind of this mind-blowing world of dolls with impeccable hair is a man with a consuming passion and a true calling.
His name is Thanos Samaras and he is as fabulous a character as the ones he features in his detailed tableaux.
Thanos is a Renaissance man, a guru of style on-line, on Flickr, and amongst Blythe fans whose frizzy-haired vintage dolls visit his beauty therapy centre and come out superstars laden with sass and an added twinkle in those changing color eyes.
Thanos is also the creator of a line of amazing natural fiber wigs, Yatabazah Luxury Wigs, designed with an ideal in mind: giving your most cherished and coddled doll the ultimate luxury of different and fabulous personalities, just with the change of finely crafted and ultra stylish hairpieces.
We at Dolldom are of the opinion that the future of the fashion doll is handmade – today’s fashion doll aficionados crave uniqueness, we all crave that  OOAK feel in our collections.
With artists like Thanos, whose work proposes alternatives not only to collecting but also to quality and exclusivity, that future is already a reality. For more on Thanos and his line of Yatabazah Luxury Wigs, visit the legend himself. And while there, make sure you get your most beloved doll a gift of handmade love.

Precious Gems by Mode de M

The trend for Spring is big, chunky, and precious. Precious and semi-precious stones adorn necks that only the wind has the right to caress. These Renaissance-inspired necklaces by master joillier Mark G. Harris evoke the seductive notes of carpe diem poems by Garcilaso de la Vega or Boccaccio.

Our exclusive Dolldom models all agreed that there's nothing like the soft and elegant glow of Mark G. Harris' expressions of love for the women of Dolldom.

Dolldom's Doll of Fame Goes to Greta Garbo

Few flesh and blood faces mesmerize the way Greta Garbo does.
 For such an achievement, Dolldom honors her beauty and her legacy of unforgettable performances in some of the world's best films, many of them made great simply by her presence.
Be it in caricatures by Nino Za or in photos by her favorite photographer, Clarence Sinclair Bull, Garbo is a perfect doll.
