Maker Monday is all about Enchanted Doll!

It is my great pleasure to introduce you to the genius behind Enchanted Doll, Marina Bychkova! Please click on any of the photos to read about them in her blog.

One look at her site, and I’m drowning in the beauty of it. Each doll has her own story, personality, and incredible wardrobe (or tattoos!) and it just pulls me in.

I’ve loved dolls ever since I was a kid, and have dreamed of owning a ball-jointed one. I used to make so many things for my dolls: clothes, furniture, food. I even put carpeting and roof tiles on my dollhouse. But never in my wildest dreams did I ever imagine anything like Marina’s dolls.

Every face and tattoo is hand painted. Every dress is hand sewn. Every shoe and accessory is tailored. The detail and passion that goes into her work is truly astounding.

My friend Kiersten inadvertently introduced me to Marina’s work when she entered and won the annual Enchanted Doll birthday contest. (Read about her tattoo design on Marina’s blog! It brings attention a women’s rights issue that many here in the US aren’t aware of.)

Kiersten’s winning design!

Below is the gorgeous doll she won!

I’ve been hooked on the dolls ever since. I’m so glad that Marina is back after her hiatus this summer, and can’t wait to see what’s in store for this year!

(Also, all images belong to Marina Bychkova! None are mine, I’m just a huge fan.)
