The enjoyable part of making miniature dolls is that there are molds available of famous personalities, or those who look like them. Or sometimes talented sculptors will sculpt their own original versions of famous (or infamous) persons.
For fun, I thought I'd showcase a couple of new dolls today, but let you guess what famous persons they may look like.
The first porcelain doll was hand-sculpted by doll artist Diane Pietrocola, who makes dolls under the name Doll Art by Diane.
The porcelain figure (in standard 1/12th scale, 1" =1 foot) is actually fashioned after a well-known male actor. I won't give his name as that'll give it away, so I'll let you guess who you think he looks like.
The second doll was a special commission made by artist Gina Gagnon of Lone Wolf Miniatures. Gina does a great job creating dolls that look real and have "personality."
The female doll you see was designed in the role as pictured, but the minute I saw her face, I noticed the resemblance to a recent person in the news. Don't let the outfit fool you.
* Feel free to share your guesses. I'll share the answer in tomorrow's post.
