A New Wildflower Doll

I don't know how many of you are familiar with Wildflower Dolls, but I just purchased my second one. My first one was a doll that reminded me of my sister Margie who had passed away in 1969 from leukemia. I had named her Margie after my sister:

You may remember Margie from a previous post

My second Wildflower Doll is an Asian beauty. When I saw her on Flickr, I immediately contacted Andrea Meyer at her Etsy shop:Wildflower Dolls to order her. Andrea is a true artisan. She sculpts and paints each unique doll head and affixes them to an articulated body. Margie is on an Obitsu body and my new doll is on a Made to Move Body, but Andrea will create them on any other body you choose. 

Meet Maylee! 

So beautiful!

It was not long before some of the men around here took notice of her. I recently restyled a Japanese Ken doll and put him on a Superman body. He was the first to have his head turned!

He still has his fisted hands, but he will be getting some FR Homme hands very soon!


He was quick to introduce himself to Maylee and to suggest that the photographer take some photos of them together.




But he was not the only fellow to take notice of the beautiful Maylee! Takeshi Kaneshiro was about to leave the studio after his photos were taken when he saw the rare beauty!





Before I knew it, Takeshi had introduced himself to Maylee!




This did not go unnoticed by the other interested fellow. 


Japanese Ken was quick to let Takeshi Kaneshiro know he had eyes on Maylee! 

Maylee was quick to let them know who would be making that decision!
Well, Maylee, looks like things will be interesting for you in Hanaly Corners!

  1. Congratulations on your new doll! Asian people are so underrepresented in the doll world. Speaking of which, I didn't know there was a Takeshi doll! Where do I get me one of those?

    1. I got his head from eBay and put him on a Hunger Games Gale body. I had to do some significant rework to the neck knob attachment, but I believe it worked out well in the end!

    1. Thanks! Do pay her store a visit! Her dolls are so expressive too. She does custom work as well, so if you didn't see something you wanted now, I am sure you could contact her about making a custom doll for you. I want to get some of her men!

  6. Wow, Phyllis, your dolls are amazing! How interesting to do doll heads which go on existing articulated bodies. (Sometimes I buy heads and put the bodies of my choosing on them.) I love how expressive the faces are. Moreover, there are so few Asian dolls that really look authentic without looking mean or westernized. This is what's so wonderful about this doll community. We discover something new every day. Thank you for sharing!!

  8. I first saw the Wildflower dolls about 3 or more years ago. I've always loved them. They are more life-like. Congrats on getting Maylee. I love what you did to Japanese Ken and Takeshi is gorgeous!
