Evolution Is Thy Name

Dolldom friend Joey Versaw has collected dolls since childhood and ever since this modern day Gepetto has wished upon a star to have his very own doll line. And after much blood, sweat, and many tears, Mr. Versaw has realized his dream fully and beautifully. Last May 2010, we profiled Mary Magpie, a boudoir-inspired beauty who took our collective breath away. Since then, Dolldom has rolled out the red carpet to welcome four more characters from this enchanting line of art dolls. 
Each Mary Magpie Evolution doll is a one-of-a-kind piece of art to which Joey devotes an average 5 hours. From assemblage, to hairstyling, to the hand painting of their fabulous faces, the end result is Joey’s vision. Joey kindly listens to ideas for the next special look and much to our delight and amazement, each 12-inch doll always exceeds our expectations. In addition to commissions, Joey offers basic dolls with which the lucky dollector can play fashion for hours as Mary fits into many similarly scaled fashion doll clothing. Joey tells us that he plans to offer Mary’s own mini comic books, illustrated by comic artist James Meadows, to narrate her fabulous life and adventures. And very soon too, Mary and her friends will be issued with a new body with increased articulation. 

As proven by the accompanying photos, Mary not only felt right at home in Dolldom’s collection, she and her friends stole our hearts in a second. 

Boudoir Mary is Dolldom's first Mary Magpie doll. 

A strawberry blond Mary with mohair wig styled by Joey in a braid wears a Barbie Basic's black knit dress and a necklace by Joy Jarred. 

Corrinne, a different sculpt and character in the Evolution line, wears a cocktail dress made by Joey with sparkly vintage fabrics. 
Corrinne wears her original Chinese style dress made by Joey using luxurious brocaded silk.

Bastian, is Joey's male sculpt and a much welcome addition to the line. All dolls need a best male friend. Bastian can wear some Ken and Fashion Royalty Homme fashions. 

One of Dolldom's favorite's is this ebony Mary. Her hairstyle is painted so that she may wear cool wigs like this Monique beehive. In this photo, Mary channels her inner Emma Peel in a Debbie Drake leotard, Lilli Lalka belt, and Ken boots. Super!
