Daphne in Disguise

by Dutch Fashion Doll World

Last week there was this amazing doll on Ebay. Her name is Daphne in Disguise and she is a creation from the Canadian doll artist Marina Bychkova. The auction was listed for 5 day. But a few hours before the auction ended Ebay removed the auction. The reason was that Ebay thought that this doll was a sex doll and that she wasn’t allowed to list her in the doll category, and not even in the art-doll category.

But Ebay come on !!! This doll is so not a sex doll. It’s an amazing piece of art !!! Ok there was this one picture in the listing that showed full frontal nudity. But it’s art and it’a a porcelain doll. And why remove this doll ? there are dozens of art dolls listings on Ebay showing full frontal nudity in the doll category.

Here are the pictures from the original listing.

After removing the nude picture and re-list her again on Ebay in a 1 day auction this amazing piece of art sold for 60,100.00 CAD. The artist donated a part of the proceeds from this auction to the Vancouver Rape Relief & Women’s Shelter.

For the people who love the dolls from this amazing artist but can’t afford them (like me 😉 there is some great news. Next year there will be a new edition from “The Enchanted Doll Book”. There are already 2 English editions from this book. But they were limited editions that sold out very quickly. Sometimes you find hem on Ebay for a lot of money. They edition for next year is expanded with her most recent dolls. And beside a signed limited edition  from 500 there will also be a unsigned edition.
