All Hallow's Eve - Dreary Style

The Dreary twins have captivated Dolldom since their very first appearance in 2007. And this Halloween 2022, they are back! In this Dolldom exclusive, Agnes and Viktor share their love for anything and everything spooky.

As the day begins its descent into dusk and candles begin to flicker, Agnes and Viktor Dreary escape to a corner of the garden...

My Witch Wish
"Dinner Doldrums" Agnes Dreary gets her witch wish with a fantastic hat by Peggy Feltrope.

Little Ghosts
Viktor imagines that his broken frozen Charlotte dolls are ghostly creatures sprouting from deep inside the Earth. 

The Greatest Showman
Viktor in a shirt, tie and pants by The Doll Workshop's Andrea Jacques and a hat by Peggy Feltrope, shows off his ghoulish menagerie. 

Let's Face It
"Minor Conundrum" Agnes loves a mask - just not on her face. Her vintage zombie lady will go trick or treating, on her hand.

La mosca mortal
Viktor leads his pack of Thetis Lake Monsters by Stexe on a nighttime excursion to the pond in LizRetros' The Fly get-up.  


Sweet Little Witch
Who's behind that mask? 

She's not saying! But everyone around her knows...

Monster Trainer
"Odd One Out" Viktor Dreary tames the beasties.

But the Enfield Horror by Stexe has gotten away...and on Halloween! 

This Halloween entry closes with a little ditty composed by the twins and enacted by their beloved friend Cuculala, an antique porcelain headed mignonette.

As I walk by the forest grand
So full of green amphibians
I realize it's time again
To make my introduction!

A casque of moss, redolent most
Of buried leaves and chestnuts,
Adorns my thoughts so hollow.

For I'm the grand Cuculala,
Cu-cu-la-la forever!
In light or dark 
You'll hear me chant
I am the grand Cuculala,
Cu-cu-cu-cu, Cuculala,
Cu-cu-la-la forever!

Happy Halloween!

Which Way to the Beach?

Looking at the calendar with blurry vision, Myles Magpie clears his eyes to realize that it’s his day off! No wedding cakes or dresses today! Not missing a beat, Myles slings on his bikini briefs as if he has thrown a ball in the air and caught it. The sun is out and it becomes quickly very obvious to Myles that he hasn't tanned in quite some time. Walking through the parking lot a man catches Myles’s attention. Rubbernecking so hard, Myles trips over a grate in the concrete and falls. “That was a pretty graceful fall!” - a kind voice from behind him says with a bit of a chuckle. His name is Malekai and he reaches  out his hand to help Myles up. “Looks like you will survive!" - he adds with a smile. Myles stands up and embarrassingly brushes off the dust and with a mischievous smile says: “Which way to the beach?”

Oh, Orlando!

 JAMIEshow Doll Muses continues its inspired presentation of 1/6 scale BJDs coded as male. Made of beautiful matte resin, the dolls' heft and articulation, paired with exquisitely detailed face-ups and body blushing, create a truly luxurious doll. The idea of offering separate wig caps increases play and fantasy value as who has not wanted to change hairstyles and hair colors to make an outfit really shine? 

This entry is dedicated to "Dangerous Love" Orlando, one of the handsome characters of 2021. In looks styled from a variety of sources, Orlando is a scene stealer. 

Après la fête...

Casual need not mean sweats. A khaki jacket by OwenSu pairs with dark denim jeans by Integrity Toys. The tank top by The Confusion 83 adds that extra element of visual texture. Boots by Dragons in Dreams circa 2018.

Go! Go! Go!

Natural Wonders

ValeyofDolls' unique take on men's sartorial design is nothing short of jaw-dropping, in fact, it's magic: the colors, the materials, the accessories. No detail is left unexamined. And who better to model this miniaturized couture but the men of Menagerie's Marmite Sue by Eli Effenberger?  

In ValeyofDolls' immaculately constructed fashions, Saturn, Jupiter and Venus Baby find their apotheosis of style becoming three essential elements of nature: air, water and fire. 

Changeant Dupioni silk is the foundation for this halter style with attached cravat. 

The headpiece, also by ValeyofDolls, is a daringly amazing way to announce the evolution of the hat. Wig by Chewin Doll.

A gorgeous sapphire blue stretch panné velvet, becomes an innovative take on the classic pairing of slacks and turtleneck top.

Top favorite of many of Dolldom's human denizens who want it in their scale.  Wig by Chewin Doll.

Emerald sparkles. Glittered lace over tulle gauze tank accompany charmeuse satin wide-leg slacks and it's not an obvious pairing. In the expert hands of ValeyofDolls, it becomes a work of art. 

The matching swimming cap is the perfect illustration of ValeyofDolls' playful aesthetic. Wig by NuminaDoll.
