| Doll Artist:
Paula Stokes Profile /
Articles / Webpage
Medium: All Cloth.
| Description: Follie is
all cloth with lots of sparkles and feathers (my cat loves her the best of all
my dolls...guess it's the feathers. (LOL)
Her shoes were plastic key
chains that I couldn't resist when walking thru Walmart one day. They actually
had a right and left foot! is one of my original designs. she is 22" tall.
Her costume is sequins,
feathers, sparklie jewels and silk and fancy metallic fabrics .
| Inspirations: I am
calling her Dreams of Follie. Reminds me of Erte's 1923 Follies Bergere.
| Herstory: She is
Romantic - Fancy Free- Deco - and those great long legs...........Erte must
have definitely been a leg man.
| The Critics: I bet the judges broke out in a sweat
when they saw this one!!
Lets face it, shes
as cute as all get-out and has a wonderful humourous appeal but
deciding what award she fell under must have given a few sleepless
She certainly deserved to win
an award - those shapely legs complete with fishnet stockings and suspenders,
and that peaches and cream face with its dimples and heavy lashes. (She had to
have had more than one facelift during her lifetime to still look that good!) .
I particularly like the
headdress though I think it could have been even larger without being
out of place!
