Creating Beauty

As a child, I was frightened by a humongous Kissy doll. At 3, it was as big as I was and when you pulled it's hands together it made a smacking or a supposed kissing sound. I was sure it would get up and get me......making smacking sounds as it neared my bed.

Now I make dolls.....some are supposed to be scary, but most just reflect how I look at beauty. To me we have a very narrow view of what beauty is and is not. I have cerebral palsy and don't think I'm whining about it I'm not. I'm lucky my case is very mild compared to some people's. But you can pick me out as different, I walk awkwardly, but my arm and leg work correctly.....for someone with a partially paralyzed arm and leg.

I look like someone with CP is supposed to and in my way I'm attractive. I try to reflect alternative beauty in the dolls I create and so in some ways I'm still dealing with fear, but now it's not my own.

Want a Custom Pet from the Pet Shop of the Old Ones?

I was thinking that it would be a good idea to set up a few listings offering custom soft sculptures of the animals that I make. The Chihuahuas of the Flaming Apocalypse, the 3 different Hexcats, Original, (mini, medium and large), Boogaloo Hexies, (medium and large) for a start.  I'm thinking of adding listings for Crawling eyes and dragons as well.

While I do offer custom sculptures already, it might be easier to just purchase a listing and go from there.  So, if you want a special sculpture in the color and size of your choice, stop by Chatnoirstudios on Etsy and I'll work with you to create the ideal sculpture.
