She is the first doll by Mazarine Blue Doll with the new SunYeong sculpture.

*SunYeong has always wanted to be a K-pop singer since she was a kid. One day she was walking down a street in Gangnam and 
was caught by a manager from a model agency.
She was hoping it was about singer, but it was modeling. Maybe it was because of her tall height. 
But she thought she will get closer to her dream if she would do something in this industry.
So she decided to be a model. she found modeling is very fun as well with beautiful dresses and make-up.
She posed in pink ball gown for Korean major Fashion Magazine and it made her well known to public. 
Because of her lovely babyface, some people said she’s not like high fashion model in Korea, but Magazine editors found her face is versatile. 
And she is getting more popular with her TV friendly face. Maybe she really got closer to her dream. 
Is she gonna be a singer someday? Nobody knows, but she’s not giving up yet. So we shall see.

I wanted to make another Asian girl with open mouth. My former one, HyeJin was Asian girl with open mouth, but I wanted to make different one.
So I tried to make more rounded and lovely face on this sculpture. I have made realistic fashion doll faces.
Since SunYeoung has rounded face, her sculpture seemed a little simpler than my other sculptures. But when she was done, 
she seemed more lively with her open mouth.
Someone told me she seems to talk to her something. It’s quiet compliment I think. 
During the work process, my duplicator kept making troubles and she got delayed so much.
I was kinda exhausted and upset because of those endless troubles from factory and I felt like my passion’s all gone. 
Actually I wasn’t happy at all to receive her duplicated heads because those some sample heads still had some little problems. 
I was just upset about the situation and had to fire him.
But I still had to work on my new doll and after painting her faces, I became happy with her look.
She kept changing as I painted her face.
Because of her girlish face features, I was planning more causal and young fashion, but I and my tailor changed her dress more dramatic.
We really loved the black lace. Top part was originally designed when I was making Carmen. I just kept it and tried it this time.
And my tailor added some japanese beads on it. I also made vintage blue colored gloves to mix with pink dress.
Golden buckles on shoes were made by Emil’a who also makes fashion dolls. 
I bought it from her last year and I though this really fits on SunYeoung’s look.
It was another long time work. I do hope you love it.

Museé de la Poupeé Paris

I just read the most sad news about Museé de la Poupeé Paris on Messy Nessy. This very cute doll museum is closing. The first time I visit them was when Magia2000 had an ooak exposition there during the Barbie RetroChic exposition.

1528469_10201919687527232_1535476749_n

Here is the article:

musee-de-la-poupee-e1500367601143.jpg

Some of you might not care that the only doll museum in Paris is closing its doors forever this fall. In fact, plenty of people suffer from pediophobia– a fear of dolls–  and my intern happens to be one of them. She looked at me like I’d lost a screw when I said we’d be going to photograph the Musée de la Poupée in its last days. Of course, by the end of our visit to the museum, she had adopted two antique dolls to take home with her.

museepoupee

The odd little musée housing a collection of more than 600 French dolls, arranged chronologically from about 1800 to the present, has just under two months left before its time runs out. Well hidden down an alleyway in the Marais, we had considerable trouble finding it, which we half-joked might be the reason it’s closing down.

musee-poupee2

Alas, the official reason for closure is that the building housing the collection is “no longer fitting European security standards”. I suspect it also has something to do with the rent in the Marais being steadily on the rise and visitor numbers steadily on the decline. It took me seven years of living in Paris to discover what is possibly the kitschiest and most unusual museum in Paris– and now I’m too late. Seven years too late. Too late even for a crowd-funding campaign to maybe help save this unappreciated pearl of Parisian curio.

museepoupee3

You see, it isn’t so much about the dolls for me, exquisite as they are, it’s about the loss of another small and independent museum of oddities that strikes a chord. Isn’t Paris the kind of city that should be breeding these types of places like wild and flavourful mushrooms? If small museums can’t make it in Paris, can they make it anywhere?

IMG_2631

For centuries, Paris has been considered a haven of artisanal crafts– heck, it even gave birth to the “Golden Age of Automata” during the Belle Epoque, which saw small family-based companies of mechanical doll makers thriving in Parisian ateliers.

IMG_2672

The closure Musée de la Poupée is a cold reminder that no small or family-run business– not even in gay ol’ Paris– is safe. Your local bars, Mom & Pop shops and little cultural gems that have been around forever– don’t take them for granted. Cherish them, support them, stamp your feet if their existence is threatened.

IMG_2630

IMG_2635

But now, back to the doll museum. The father and son business, founded over two decades ago, is closing its doors on September 15th. Until then, a visit to the museum in its final days can turn into an unexpected foray into the world of doll collecting. For the next two months, the Musée de la Poupée is turning into the ultimate doll shop, cleaning out its closet and having one giant sale of its treasures at flea market prices.

From rare (and sometimes controversial) antique dolls to more recent toys from your own childhood that you’d almost forgotten about– you can find them waiting in trunks and lined up on shelves waiting to go to a good home.

IMG_2654

They have a particularly interesting collection of international dolls, from Indian princesses to flamenco dancers and bullfighters in exquisitely detailed little costumes. I picked one up for my bookshelf and I think he fits right in to the MessyNessy HQ wouldn’t you say? ↓

If you’re in Paris this summer, pay a visit to this unusual little museum– you might just hold a doll in your arms and realise that they’re not blood-thirsty demons after all, but rather a reminder of your appreciation for the little guy, the underdog and the small, forgotten pleasures in life.

Musée de la Poupée: Open Tues-Sat, 1-6pm until the 15th September 2017/ 7 Impasse Berthaud, 75003 Paris.
