CC CHRONICLES: Making My Doll Hobby/Problem WERK

Published by cctadmin on August 23rd, 2014

_________________________________________

I collect used dolls.  All kinds, colors, conditions.

I strip them down.  I make them over.

I hack their hair, I make new dresses.  I paint more eye-lashes.

I name them.

Its really quite simple.

And therapeutic.

Not to mention entertaining.

HOWEVER – as I go along I am inspired by the many things I could do with these creatures once the work is done.  I find myself wanting to put the dolls to as good as use as I can.  I have no need to hold onto them once they are done, so what I am currently doing is using this inspiration to come up with a plan where I can somehow involve the community as well as create something even more special than just the dolls themselves.  There will be more details to come but in the meantime here is an EXCLUSIVE sneak peek at some of the more recent ones I’ve been ‘playing’ around with.

More details to come! STAY TUNED!

“THE GiRL of the SEVENTiES”: MARiSA BERENSON

Published by cctadmin on October 25th, 2011

Iconic model of the late ’60s and ’70s, granddaughter of the brilliant fashion genius  ELSA SCHiAPPARELLi, once coined “the girl of the Seventies” by YVES SAiNT LAURENT, MARiSA BERENSON has to be one of the most exquisite beauties of all time.

Sometimes a woman comes along who embodies the spirit of her time with effortless quality that that defies all words. BERENSON was one of the most captivating woman of her era. Every now and then I go back and visit her there in the land of inspiration from that time -
