The Doll Scene features hundreds of custom-created dolls by the hands of some of the best artists worldwide using mainly original Blythe, Pullip, Ball Jointed Dolls, Dal, or Monster High dolls as “raw material” to generate their lovely and stunning characters. These dolls have an oversized head and large eyes that change colors!
Changing everything from the original serialized doll— hair, makeup, reshaping faces, adding new eyelashes, eyelids and clothing— the artists featured in The Doll Scene create some truly amazing figures.

Wonderful book. An impulse buy that turned out to be better than the main book I bought. The only way it could have been better for me, would have been if the dolls were even more customized. The paint jobs were beautiful, but I would have liked it if even more of them had hand customized arms and legs etc.
