As part of my #DeadPullipSociety series, here is a matt-black stylised Pullip Doll skull, against a black gloss background. (Other colours are available).
Fashion dolls have a huge following. These dolls are not for children, they are strictly an adult craze, and all sorts of people collect, customise, sell, photograph... You get the idea.
Amongst the most popular of these dolls are the Blythe series, and the very similar Pullips - with which I have fallen in love with - especially of the gothic variety! Originating from Korea, the Japanese have created an explosion of amazing dolls, and of course fashioned them in incredible outfits as only the Japanese know how.
The internet is awash with images of customised Pullip Dolls from all around the world, and a huge portion of them are very cute, brilliantly customised with hand-made clothes, make-up and settings for them to reside in - but there are also an awful lot of saccharin-sweet, disgustingly grandiose and creepy dolls that spoil the otherwise wonderful crop.
With the #deadpullipsociety I plan to tip the scales a little, inject a little more gothic mayhem, a little more darkness in to the world of Pullips and their cousins - releasing a series of images, prints, apparel and other merchandise in to the world...
The canvas is approximately 20cm (8 inches) square - matching many of my other artworks on Etsy - and is ready to hang. The gloss canvas stretches around the inner frame and looks perfect on any wall! If you would prefer this in any other colour then please choose from the variations - otherwise I shall assume you'd like black! :)
