How can I get one of your dolls?
Inamorata dolls can be bought blank, as ready made dolls for sale in the shop at the moment or commissioned. If you want to order a bespoken doll of your own please read the commission info.
Do you offer layaways?
Yes. I usually offer a 3 month layaway plans for ready-to-buy dolls. For commissions there is a 50% deposit, but the final payment can be broken into smaller installations. You can specify that you would like a layaway payment plan when you use the order forms to order your doll.
What do I get when I buy an Inamorata doll?
When you buy a blank doll, you get a factory cast articulated art doll, fully sanded (no seams), factory strung (looser) 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.
The doll I wanted is sold. Can you make another one?
It is a matter of honour for me I do not make copies of my own or anyone else’s work. I guarantee that the One-Of-A-Kind artwork I make will remain unique. You can commission a similar item that has a personality of its own, for example another doll with vitiligo in Chocolate resin patterns as long as they are clearly different from the original.
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. 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 weeks and even months to create. Painting a doll usually takes a week as each face up and body blushing consists of dozens of layers that need to dry well between layers.
Can I skip the waiting line?
Generally it’s first come first served, but I often juggle multiple projects. Smaller projects and similar tasks to on going ones, like painting a nude doll, are easier to squeeze into the time waiting for the paint to dry. Before starting on a commission I contact the next person in line to ask if the time is convenient for them and if it’s not an the project gets postpones it bumps up the rest of the queue.
