Welcome to my Custom Dolls showroom

All my dolls are one of a kind. I don't offer customization services or take custom orders, I work in my own dolls only, that I may offer for sale here when they are ready.

If a doll is published here, but it's marked as SOLD, it means someone claimed her and it's no longer available. 

I don't make dolls in bulk or keep a stock, this is my passion and I dedicate as much time to it, as my daily life allows so unfortunately, I can't say in advance when my dolls will be available or how many there will be. Please visit my Instagram for updates on upcoming drops and be around for announcements!

Meet my Rita


Rita is an Artist created doll. No other will be made to look exactly like her.
She received lovingly hand painted, life-like features, including contouring and shading, freckles, realistic eyebrows, eyelashes and lip gloss. Her facial features have been sealed several times during the process to sustain the pass of time and to protect it from fading from UV rays from lights.

Rita was made from a new AG TM110 doll in the Jess face mold, with dark blue eyes. She was removed from her box to be hand painted and photographed only. She has never been played with. Her hair was removed from the hairnet for photos. It was styled with a neon yellow headband and placed back in the hairnet, to keep her hair in place during transit. Light restyling might be needed when removing it. 
She comes was dressed in her original meet outfit. 

Rita will bring with her a doll size, IADA, plush llama.

She will travel in her original TM box as shown, inside a new shipper box with new shipping materials. Packing peanuts used for packing are biodegradable and dissolve under running hot water or can be placed safely in your compost bin. Packing materials are reusable and/or recyclable.

As all my dolls, she will come with a Certificate of Authenticity of her custom work with signed printed photos for your records, her wrist tag and her box has my label. 

** Full Disclosure on Rita, please read:

Rita, as most Jess molds, has some asymmetry in her eyes, where one eye socket is slightly smaller than the other. Full sets of photos, with close-ups of her face in different angles are published. I had two options: deemed her as defective and send her back, or love her the way she is and bringing her to life with my brushes, just like any of my other dolls. I think she is adorable and it actually gives her character. I'm sure someone will love her imperfectly perfect as she is, if not, she will stay proudly as part of my collection. Who ever decides bringing her home, please acknowledge that you have read this disclosure by letting me know in your inquire if you'd like a pair of AG rose gold glasses for her. They would complement her perfectly <3   

*** Book not included. Props used for photography are not included with the doll. Only what was described is coming with her.

For the love of dolls
