I Am Doll Parts...




So recently I was made aware of Stuffed Magazine and one particularly unique doll maker who creates her bizarrely beautiful rag dolls under the moniker Junker Jane. In the pages of Stuffed you can visit the wonderfully warped mind of today's crop of softie culture.  I remember growing up when even stuffed rag dolls conformed to a beauty myth of always being perfect, pretty and sweet.  Not surprisingly I never really attached to many dolls of any description but then again, the dolls didn't speak to me the  way these softies do.  Treat yourself to the wonder of Junker Jane next time you're in a rut and need to jump start your own creativity.  Junker Jane
It's a doll revolution!
                                 
Straight up Greggae Style dream dolls.

Who's a cutie?
Pixar has nothing on this lady!
Ridiculous.

  3. Is it just me, or are these dolls not the first thing that come to mind when I see the word "softie?"
