They are my favorite holidays of the year, and I always go out of the way special art to celebrate, like Jack And Jill (Who are still looking for a forever home to be displayed all year). It’s a lot of fun to let my darker side flow and create dolls and paintings that are out of what you are used to see.
My traditional Frida dolls wear dresses inspired by the fascination Mexican culture has with death, skeletons, flowers and skulls during the traditional celebration when we set our table and invite our ancestors to dine with us.
This Year, Frida is wearing a very special handmade mask painted with bold colors and flowers, just like the sugar skulls that cheerfully decorate our altars.
I really loved this doll, she immediately found her forever home, even before she was finished and I got many requests to make another like her. I love her so much that I have to oblige and now I am in the process of making a special edition of custom dolls just like her.
Let me show you a little of the process!
Every doll is unique
Each of my dolls begins with a sketch and an idea, and they are assembled and painted by hand.
With each doll you adopt, you are getting a beautiful work of art that will never be repeated, infused with my love for creation and a tiny part of my soul to spark their beauty.
They wear handmade clothes
One of the most time consuming processes for me is deciding what clothes my dolls will wear. I will sift trough my collection of fabric scraps and samples until I find the perfect pattern that will match the doll’s character and personality.
And you get to choose the fabric this time!
I found the perfect combination of patterns and colors for each of the dolls that I will make for this special edition, and you will get to choose the fabric if you make your reservation ahead of time.
Which is your favorite?
Your doll will be beautiful!
Each doll will have very special details, like a custom made necklace using real polished semi-precious stones, a handmade mask and flowers in her hair, which will be made from organic wool and set on a traditional Mexican hairdo, just like ones Frida used to set her hair when she appeared in public.
You will love your original doll!
Each face is sculpted and hand painted by me, she will have a beautiful profile and my signature expressive eyes that you love to gaze so much.
And she will travel in style.
If you are like me, you love getting packages on the mail, and I will make your unboxing experience worth it! Frida will travel in a sturdy cardboard box and beautifully wrapped so you can love her as soon as she is out of her traveling package!
