Starting my Tour of the Doll Room at Land of Oz Dolls!

Good morning all! During my Open House last week, I had many requests from people for an online tour of the doll room for those too far away to attend in person. So today will start my virtual tour of the many displays within the doll display room. Most of the dolls are for sale, I only have a few dolls in there that are not. My 5 foot Lady Grace is not for sale as I will probably never get another one totally completed. I also have a few antique German dolls mixed in for display purposes only that I have purchased reasonably at doll shows. If you see a doll you are interested in or have questions about just email me at landofozdolls@mchsi.com . Some dolls are no longer available and have been sold since I took these photos.

“Photo of the Day” British Gentlemen

My “Photos of the Day” for August 31st, 2014 is of a pair of British Gentlemen I made several years ago as samples for a costuming seminar we had here at Land of Oz Dolls. The “Gentleman” in red is a Jullien reproduced from a Byron mold. The costume was made by Pam Willits and the seminar was taught by Pam. The “Gentlemen” in brown is a Steiner and was made from a Doll House Mold Co. mold, I made this costume in Pam’s seminar. The fabric for both of these costumes came from a wonderful antique store just 10 miles from me called “Ideas and Designs” in Mt. Carroll, Il. When I have seminars and retreats, a trip to “Ideas and Designs” is always on the agenda.They both stand approximately 25″ tall on the FB18S composition body. I hope you enjoy seeing this pair of “British Gentlemen”! Dolly Hugs, Connie Zink
