How can I get one of your dolls?
I seldom have ready made dolls for sale so most of my work is commissioned. If you want to order a bespoken doll of your own please read the How to Order article.
What do I get when I buy a doll?
When you buy a blank doll, you get a factory issue doll, fully sanded (no seams), factory strung articulated doll with a full set of hands (6 expressive hands and 2 dressing hands) and pierced ears. Buying a OOAK doll, the joints are coated with hot glue and the doll is restrung tighter by Emilia to improve poseability. The doll is hand painted and UV coated. Wigs, garments and accessories depend on the doll.
*Note that stands are no longer included in the Inamorata package.
My doll came with 8 different hands. How do I change them?
It’s pretty simple when you get the hang of it. Here is a tutorial to help.
What size wigs should I get for my Inamorata?
The wig size in head circumference is 4,5-5″ (13cm) for traditional soft cap wigs. I recommend hard cap wigs because they have a more natural fit and hairline than traditional soft net wigs. Inamorata can share wigs from other brands as well. Read the full article about size and sharing here. I also make hard cap wigs for sale and by order.
Can Inamorata share fashions/wigs/shoes with other 16″ dolls?
Yes. Inamorata can share with many similar size dolls. Read the full article about it here.
Why is your waiting list so long?
Everything I make is OOAK, hand made and designed especially for the project at hand. That is to say it’s slow and labour intensive work. My sewing techniques mainly utilize haute couture hand stitching on a mannequin so a garment may take a month to create. Painting a doll usually takes a week as each face up and body blushing consists of dozens of layers. Generally I make about one doll per month.
Can I skip the waiting line?
Generally it’s first come first served, but sometimes people do get to skip the line so to speak. Before starting on a commission I contact the next person in line to ask if the time is convenient for them and if its not an the project gets postpones it bumps up the rest of the queue. Sometimes I finish a big project early and it’s easier to bump up a nude OOAK project that takes a week than start the next dressed OOAK doll project early. Some collaboration projects require a lot of communications with the client and then I might multitask and juggle two or three projects simultaneously.
