Item#134. Black Roses Cara. CED fashion doll. $159.00 SOLD

Doug’s Comment: Designing "Black Roses" Cara was actually quite a challenge. I, of course, wanted the outfit to be sexy, but not vulgar, over the top, but still glamorous. It was hard to pull that off but I think I was very close to that goal in the final product. Even though the black lace is rather transparent, it still covers most of her, just a bit of arm and her neckline peak out. The rest is covered by the black lace and much of that covered with dense beading and sequins. Her corset, I feel is quite an accomplishment. It's half genuine leather and half black spandex with a million metal lacing loops up the back and lots of boning.


She has custom jewelry, ring, earrings and necklace but the best final accessory is her large vase of black roses. These vases were custom produced for us based on my drawings and were only produced for "Black Roses" Cara.

Description: This is the very last regular Black Roses Cara doll. She comes in her extremely complex Black Roses outfit with beaded pants and blouse, leather, boots, lace, sequins, ribbons, tiny grommets, spandex and jewelry. This one will also include a black silk skirt which is a great addition. Her custom sculpted black antiqued vase containing a mound of black roses is of course included. Cara is a wigged doll.











Item# 102. Willow and Daisy outfit "National Gallery". $22.00. Signed

Note: The vinyl Daisy and Willow dolls and outfits of the late 90’s were produced by the LL Knickerbocker company but designed and created by Doug James and Laura Meisner.

Description:

Willow and Daisy outfit "National Gallery" has the gold silk pink mini dress with navy bow detail, navy blue tights, navy shoes with gold detail, Navy velvet hat, gold earrings, navy gloves and pyramid shaped navy silk handbag and art program.

Doug’s Comments: The Willow and Daisy outfits range from the creative and fanciful to what some may refer to as “whacky” in a fun way. Regardless, they were a delight to work on.




Item#131. Prototype Daisy in Prototype Lady Bug Concert outfit. Original prototype. Signed. $225.00

Note: As you may or may not know, Doug and Laura Meisner partnered to create the Willow and Daisy dolls produced by the L.L. Knickerbocker Company in the late 90’s.

Doug’s Comment:

This is a prototype Daisy, and by prototype I mean it's the very original doll sculpt before we got the Knickerbocker company involved. There are only a hand full of these dolls in existence. This is also a prototype outfit. The dolls’ face was hand painted by me and the wig cut and styled by Laura. The final dolls were based on these dolls but we made them a little bit shorter. The prototypes are not quite 17 inches and we made the final dolls the popular 16 inches. Their necks, arms and legs became just a bit slimmer. Although quite different, I always thought these original dolls had a charm all their own.







Item# 132. Prototype Willow in Prototype Picadilly outfit. Original prototype. Signed. $225.00

Note: As you may or may not know, Doug and Laura Meisner partnered to create the Willow and Daisy dolls produced by the L.L. Knickerbocker Company in the late 90’s.

Doug’s Comment: This is one of the very first prototype dolls using the original Willow and Daisy body. There are only a hand full of these dolls in existence. She was created before Knickerbocker got involved. This is the sample of Willow and she's wearing the prototype Picadilly outfit. The face was hand painted by me, outfit made by me, and the hair styled by Laura. The final dolls were based on these dolls but we made them a little bit shorter. The prototypes are not quite 17 inches and we made the final dolls the popular 16 inches. Their necks, arms and legs became just a bit slimmer. Although different, I always thought these original dolls had a charm all their own.
