Blogs from My Web Site - Dolls Imitate Life

I got this photo from France. Some of these old photos are
the best, aren't they? You wonder what the occasion was and who these people were.

I love the wax doll I put above the photo. He has human hair and wears his original costume. I do not know his origin. But, when it comes to half dolls, I prefer the wax ones. They're so real looking. I have some other wax dolls, made like him, that I will share in a future post. This guy is made to sit on something with his legs dangling.

Below the photo are a Blossom, that probably had a hat originally, a small Lenci with a great expression, and a French doll that is wearing her original silk polka-dotted costume. I've had her for awhile, and she is one of my favorite dolls.

Boudoir Doll Sighting - The Film "Speedy" - Harold Lloyd - 1928

Harold Lloyd, Ann Christy in "Speedy" 1928 - boudoir doll given away as prize at Coney Island.

Unfortunately, this YouTube film clip has the wrong music and repeats scenes and has scenes out of context so it doesn't represent the movie correctly. The Coney Island part of this movie, the way it originally was, was great! You might want to rent the DVD - Netflix has it. Anyway, boudoir doll starts at 3:54.........
