Five Years Box Bowie

I've been making a couple of new Bowie dolls, one of which is this David with a black and white outfit. It is what he wore on the cover of the newly released Five Years Box set covering his music from 1969 - 1973.

Mr Bowie

I have been wanting to have a go at making a David Bowie doll for a very very long time. 
So to coincide with the new exhibition 'David Bowie is' that has just opened
 at The Australian Centre of the Moving Image, I have made these two!
The first one is based on the iconic outfit designed for Bowie by Kansai Yamamoto

The second doll I have based on an outfit he wore singing
 Starman on Top of the Pops in 1972.
{the dolls are available over here}

There is an interesting BBC documentary on this early part of Bowie's career 
about the evolution of Ziggy Stardust over here if you're interested!

My Diego and Frida

He took ALOT of stuffing, but here he is.
 My first go at making a Diego Rivera doll!
I based these two on the photo of the couple seen above.
They were alot of fun to make and I loved seeing how Frida turned out without any flowers in her hair. She still looks like Frida - with the jewellery and the centre parting.
They are both available to buy in my Etsy store over here!xx
