I had a little idea about a year ago to produce my ideal 'dollhouse doll'. I have never liked the generic ones of a four person family with bland clothing and expressionless faces. Of course, my ideal doll needed to be an animal, and since my dollhouse will be a home for Zoë - what better animal than a skeptical tabby cat!
The first step on my quest to create a the perfect doll was to sketch out the idea. I wanted something simple, Scandinavian looking, and cute ;)
After I got my drawing exactly as I wanted it, I ordered a laser cut Zoë from Skill Mill NYC. They did a lovely job of producing her exactly the way I wanted!
Then using pens and acrylics, I added some color and details...
Ta-da! Here Zoë stands in the first room I've completed in the dollhouse makeover - The Orangery. (I can't wait to decorate this room with plants and furniture!!!)
So, what do you think of little Zoë? ;) Could you imagine her in your dollhouse?
