5 out of 5 stars

I am including a five star review because the program will only allow a photo to accompany a five star review. I wish it were different. I would prefer to give a four star review. My reason is because the scale of the dolls is noticeably off. My doll looks much larger than I am in the photo. I am 5'3 which I pointed out to the artist. My husband is 6'4". The height difference is one of the most telling things about the difference between us. I had planned to have the entire family made but have decided against it because I do not believe it will look right with the scale so badly off. The dolls are beautifully made and designed. The artist is a pleasure to work with. I only wish she had paid attention to our proportions. I am disappointed.

About

The world of FULANA BELTRANA SICRANA

Hello and welcome!
All my dolls and accessories are designed and handmade by me, in my studio in Lisbon, Portugal and I mainly work with upcycled, vintage and limited-edition sample fabrics and materials, therefore each one of them is one-of-a-kind, sometimes really unique and collectible.

My collections are inspired by characters and lifestyles I like and admire and I also make mini-me portrait dolls, inspired by your pictures!
In general, Fulana and Fulano have dark, Beltrana and Beltrano red and Sicrana and Sicrano brown hair or pelage, like my Aniumans.

The name "Fulana Beltrana Sicrana" is inspired in the Portuguese expression “Fulano, Sicrano e Beltrano" and its equivalent in other languages would be: Italian: "Tizia, Caia e Sempronia" English: "Jane, Jill and Mary", French: "Pierrette, Paulette et Jacqueline", Spanish: "Fulana, Zutana y Mengana", Polish: "Jasia, Julka i Marysia", Greek: ""Λόλα, Φαίη και Μιμή (Lola, Fay and Mimi)"...

I believe the essence of my work is in the act of the creative process itself: I imagine it as a journey that we take together since the moment I start cutting the fabrics until I see their faces looking at me, with their own special and unique personality!
I still ask myself if I've found them and or if they've found me first!

FULANA BELTRANA SICRANA has been published in 'STUFFED' magazine - Autumn 2015 - Artist Portfolio (pg 20-29), Textiel Plus n. 231 and Evasões n.24, among others.

Thank you! Grazie! Obrigada!
