Doll play has 1001 manifestations as it goes beyond the mere act of a wardrobe change. Dollectors of all ages engage in an instantaneous storytelling journey, be it by adding a pair of sunglasses or repositioning the protagonist of the narrative. Creative and revealing, doll play is, to many of us at Dolldom, as much a balsam for the soul as a shot of gin.
Enter Joey Versaw's Meadow, lead singer of the band The Daffodollies. A tribute to the art of French illustrator Kiraz, Meadow combines the latest in technology with painstaking hand painting of face up and body blushing. Sculpted digitally and then 3-D printed, Meadow is the apotheosis of digital magic, but it is the way in she's brought to life in the hands of Versaw, that Meadow truly becomes a character; a perfect heroine for many an adventure.
Designed to wear wigs and to fit into couture created for slim dolls, Meadow invites us to engage with her. As this entry proves, Meadow truly is 100 dolls in one, as with just the change of wig, a new character is born. Add Mod styles borrowed from Francie, Momoko, even Poppy Parker, and suddenly, we all ask: "Who's that girl?"
