Sitting at school and wondering..

Just sitting in my fashion class when it came upon me....

Why can't dolls have a fashion show? I mean... we make clothing for them, we style their hair, we do faceups to make them look pretty..  they ARE models, in that sense. But yet we sometimes use them as accessories, carry around them like a purse or stylish handbag.  Completing whatever garment you decide to wear. I don't believe in that. Even to carry around a little teacup dog that fits in your purse is weird in anyone's eyes asides in LA.. where that's the norm.
I believe a doll should be the MAIN focal point. if you want to carry them around in a kimono? Wear black. Make THEM stand out, they're your model for whatever you've done for them. I may not be good at faceups. but when you put your heart and soul to theirs to make THEM have a soul.. I would want to show that off. "Yeah, I did that. I'm a good artist. I also styled that wig that she's wearing and made that one-of-a-kind outfit for her" You'd get PRAISE, and hell, it makes your kids look cool too. :3


  1. Doll fashion shows, eh? I'd be interested to see that.

  2. Dolls can't move. >:C
    I get where you're coming from, but yeah.. Dolls being inanimate and everything...

  3. Well I'm not sure about catwalks but when people see other people wear clothes, they try to relate. They can sort of imagine what it would be like to wear those items in that fashion. I don't think you'd get the same feeling if it were based on only a doll. If you were going to do this then please don't be discouraged by my comment. :)

  4. I think the reason dolls haven't been implemented in fashion shows is because people probably like seeing other people wear the clothing to see how it moves and such. A doll doesn't show the movement. Interesting idea though. I would see a doll fashion show out of curiosity.
