Casting Call for New Book

The new book, Dolly Bureau (Vol 3):  All About Tiny Dolls [working title], is underway and this year I'm going to try something a little different with the book.  Instead of being strictly a pattern book, this year the book will highlight all kinds of tiny dolls (11.5cm/4.5in or shorter) with some pattern tutorials, crafts, etc.  In this volume, dolls, crafts, clothing, accessories, etc, will also come from other people, not just MegannArt.

How great would it be to have some of your own dolls or handmade designs in a published book?!  Dolly Bureau books are gaining popularity and would help people notice your work. See below for more information about contributing to the book.

Contributions would include temporary use of the following: 

  • All dolls 11.5cm or shorter (e.g. Ruby Red Galleria Honee B, Mattel Kelly, Fairyland PukiPuki and RealPuki, Peak's Woods Monthly Fairy, LillyCat Colline, Wilde Amelia Thimble, Lati White SP, Felix Brownie, Angelregion Gienie Lilica, Doll Leaves Cherry and Milk, Dollzone Yu with B10-001 body and Teng with B10-001 body, HZ Doll tiny dolls like Tian Tian Roro, IslandDoll Leshy, Polly Pocket, Azone Picco Neemo, Mame Momoko, Fidelia Fireflys, vintage dolls, etc).  The list of dolls is endless.
  • Handmade clothing, accessories, wigs, and props that would be appropriate for dolls of about this size.  Items must be made by the contributor.

MegannArt will photograph your items and send them back to you in a timely manner.  Some photos are being considered to include in the book, under certain guidelines.  The deadline for accepted items is mid April 2015.  To those who contribute, credit will be provided in the book.  MegannArt also provides a contract for contributors to guarantee return, credit, and protection of your property.

Silkstone Barbie Commission

My relationship with Silkstone Barbies has been pretty slim until now. After a recent commission, I started to like these dolls quite a bit. Below are some pics from the recent commission. Chicdesign, owner of a new Barbie-inspired Etsy shop, has provided some pictures as well. Spoiler alert -- I have 5 new dresses in a similar fashion coming out in the shop very soon.

Fan Pics, Part 2

Welcome back to another episode of fan pics! Today, the lovely images come from Ternessa, who has purchased my Summer Fun outfit as well as a commissioned outfit of Rei Kurosawa from the game Fatal Frame. The doll in the first set of pictures is Feliz and she is wearing the Summer Fun outfit. The second doll is Rei and is a custom Momoko. I'm a sucker for Momoko dolls and she definitely has some cute ones. Coming up are some pics and info in regards to the FR Brides of Dracula! I just got them in a couple days ago.

Fan Pics, Part 1

It's fan photo time! Below are some images from patrons of my designs with their own dolls in my works. I love seeing well-dressed dolls, especially when they are my own designs. The first comes from Etsy seller, Glastra. She has her doll, Yori, dressed in my basic blue tube dress that just looks darling on her. The last set of pictures comes from another Etsy seller, Stuffbymichele. Her Barbie-Liv hybrid is wearing the Winter Love outfit, which is certainly one of my favorites. It's great to see how other people set up their dolls in such lovely poses and backgrounds.
