Mad Hatter doll.
Exclusive interpretation of the Mad Hatter's image, in accordance with the customer's wishes, plunged our whole team for a few weeks into the magical and wonderful world of "Looking Glass". And, as it is supposed to a real fairy-tale hero with a finicky character - the master of hat making did not give up without a fight. Preparatory work took half of the total time spent on this product. To begin with, the technology of creating the doll was developed, which brought together several handicraft techniques. And according to the predetermined technological nuances was carried out selection of materials. And here began the most interesting thing - materials were coming for the doll not only from different parts of Ukraine, but also from other countries. For example, natural silk for the shirt came from India (it's good when friends are avid travellersJ ), the hairstyle was made of Australian wool, one of the stockings came from Rivne, and the second one was found in a Kiev shop. In search of the best feathers for the hat we visited a bird yard in the suburbs of the capital, unusual white eyelashes were ordered from Dnipro, eyes were created in a single copy by a Belarusian craftsman. The textile doll Mad Hatter turned out to be 60 cm tall.
The flexible frame inside the torso ensures variability of limb positions - not only the arms and legs are movable, but also the fingers. And slightly distorted proportions together with the frame provide stability of the product, the doll does not require any additional supports. Lush red hair was curled and collected by individual curls, each of which is implanted directly into the scalp. The costume was sewn according to all the rules of tailoring. It consists of a silk shirt, a Scottish kilt, a waistcoat, a caftan, a neckerchief, stockings and shoes. And the most important accessory is a hat, with many small details, without which the Hatter is not a hatter at all. All elements of the costume are removable, which gives the opportunity to clean the costume in case of dirt. Undoubtedly, the Hatter is one of our most labour-intensive projects, but it is definitely worth it. It is impossible to describe in words how much pleasure our team got by fulfilling this order and giving ourselves a "fat" mark DONE in the rating of professional achievements! But even more collectible doll of our production means for the current owners. According to them, having received the long-awaited doll, they understood the meaning of the expression "over the moon"!
