The most unique doll.
She arrived today, and I couldn’t help but take some pretty photos of her. ❤
She was made by Daria, an artist from Russia, which has a shop called Claymate Creatures.
I have a few other creatures of hers, which are so beautiful, but in all the months I have been following Daria on Instagram, I was hoping she would put for sale one of her bigger, human-like dolls. And a couple of weeks ago, she did!
As soon as I saw that Minako was for sale, I didn’t think twice about getting her. Plus, her Japanese name, and her looks, are simply perfect.
Daria included this pug brooch in the box as a gift, so cute!
This is what Minako came with: an adorable beanie, a furry jacket (as well as a crochet top hidden underneath), a silver skirt and ‘leather’ jacket, a matching bag with small books inside, and a mask so that she can fully transform into a bunny.
That mask adds such a cool twist to this doll!
Here is how she looks with nothing on, and to be honest, I quite like her this way as well!
I was so happily surprised by her dimensions: she is much bigger than the animal creatures, so they look proportionate when placed next to each other.
Of course the temptation to make her cute clothes was too strong, so the first thing I did after unboxing her, was to run into my office, grab some scrap fabric and make her a couple of pieces.
She comes with a lot of winter items, but none for summer time, so it made sense to me to make her a few, and it was so much fun that I’m already planning more outfits to make her.
I’m so happy she arrived, and so glad I was able to get her.
