Hats and Ball Joint Dolls

I have recently been infected with the ball-joint-doll (BJD) fever by my friend Yve over at Freaky Little Dolls. She has a fine collection of dolls, gets me going on the internet, searching for this and that doll to make hats for, and truly, I am afraid I will at some point wind up spending all my money on dolls! You may just find me down the road at the old pensioner's home, still playing with dolls. Yve had me make a black silk hat with sequins (a lot like the one I made for my Gentlemen Prefer Blondes doll) for one of her fancy-schmancy dolls, Isobel, in trade for a lovely outfit for my own goofy BJD, which is an Obitsu Hujoo named Blanche, who gets used a lot as a hat model (I'll post her one of these days). Isobel, Yve's most beautiful doll, is an Elfdoll Sooah, which is a really gorgeous ball joint doll that Yve has been kind enough to show off in the hat I made. I have a couple pictures here of the hat I made for Yve, but you will have to check out her post of Isobel with her hat to see the hat on a much grander doll than I have available.


  1. Awww, look at Isobel's hat on someone smiley. Issy loves her despite her pout, she can't express her joy, she just wasn't sculpted that way! ;O)

  2. I mean Issy loves her HAT!!!

  3. Oh my gosh, Cindy--I just took a peek at your Etsy shop and you have been busy!! So many cute hats! Your photos are looking really great, too, I might add--I like the dramatic, dark background. Your hat looks stunning on your friends doll, by the way :)

  4. Issy looks lovely, of course, Yve!

    I have been busy, Ivy. I am just trying to figure out how to actually sell a hat! Can sure make them, though! :) Working on the photos. I am not a great photo-stylist, so have to be quite basic :)
