Tissue doll

Instant bride doll which is made of paper tissue.
Do you laugh about its rawness and roughness?

When I was a child I used to make various things of tissue.
My parents were poor, so they could not buy me enough toys.

Children of today have a lot of toys. That may make their creativity less.

Roses of tissue.

Old days, we played with simple and naive things.

A hand puppet of gloves and a hanky mouse.

The head of John

I'm making a new life-sized doll who will be 5 feet 7 inches tall.
The hair is a wig (cap?) of furry fabric.

My house is too small to keep a big doll. So I make his body after the sales contract.
The body is almost same as 6 feet doll.

This is for sale only in Japan because of high shipping.

After all, he became 6 feet 1 inch tall.
Detail is here.
