I recently saw a picture of these amazing beautiful dolls created by Marina Bychkova. I was struck by the very lifelike quality they have to them and had to find out more.
Using the fantastic drop and drag feature in google image search I was able to find out who they were created by. I think the detail that goes into the dolls and their costumes is really what makes them so special, that and you can tell that a lot of love has gone into creating them!
Here is what Marina herself has to say about her dolls and her website* : http://www.enchanteddoll.com/artistinfo/info.html
When I needed to come up with brand name to give my dolls an identity, I decided to name them after Paul Gallico’s fictional, short story called “Enchanted Doll”, where a young woman creates dolls with so much love that they enchant people at first sight with their compelling, delicate, life-like beauty.
And this is my goal also.
