This shop is owned by a couple of artists who are mad about dolls

Welcome to MerryDollShop!
Here you can find almost everything for your dolls. We make clothes, furniture, handwoven friendship bracelets, faceup, wigs, doll repaints, hair reroot and different accessories for BJD and fashion dolls. We mostly focused on goods for Iplehouse BJD and Tonner dolls.

We start our small buisness because we wanted to see a place where one can find everything he needs for his doll: clothes for all occasions, accessories, furniture, wigs, faceup service instead of searching all this at ten different places and paying ten times for the shipping. We couldn't find such a place. That's why we building this doll paradise by ourselves.

We choose bright colours, fabrics with fabulos prints for our clothes, make romantic looking hairstyles with different curls and locks, produce doll furniture of high quality, paint lifelike faces. All our production designed to make your doll different from other dolls. Let your doll be unique with our clothes, faceup and hairstyles!

We do our best to make dolls (and their owners) happy. Our brand MerryDoll also has some happiness in it's name. We love to see happy, joyful, merry dolls!

Our team consist of two members. We are a married couple of artists from Russia who love dolls. Our names are Mary Vassilieva and Paul Blokhin. Mary is the creative director of our brand MerryDoll. She maintaines our website, clothing blog and the shop. Mary makes all clothes, friendship bracelets, faceup, repaints and wigs. Paul designs and makes doll furniture. Besides of doll-related stuff we are busy with illustrations, book design, painting and etching.

Mary was the first of us who started to work with dolls. She became well-known as a portrait repainter of Tonner dolls. But she wanted not only to paint doll faces but to use her other skills because she was good at sewing, knitting and making accessories for dolls. Paul on other hand was good at human furniture making that was his hobby for years. That's how was started our joint project MerryDoll. Mary is painting doll faces and making doll clothes about 7 years. Paul is making doll furniture about 1 year.

If you want to know more of us and our doll art, visit our website and blog, please.

    I was playing with dolls till I became fifteen. When I was 25 I returned to dolls. I'm very happy I can play and work at the same time.

Clothes:

I can guarantee a good fitting of my clothes for the dolls with the same body types as my dolls I use as models. I can't guarantee my clothes fit other dolls of similar size because of body construction difference.

Furniture:
All doll furniture is one-of-a-kind
Paul makes furniture for 1/3 and 1/4 dolls. All furniture made of wood.



BJD faceup and repaints:
I do not provide a doll for repaint or faceup. You should have a suitable doll for repaint and faceup. If you have a doll for repaint or faceup you ship it to my address, I paint a face and ship the doll back to you.

If you want me to paint other doll, please, ask.

I can paint human-like dolls, fantasy creatures, BJD-animals. I don't like to paint anime characters and monsters. I can't do vampires, wounds, blood, fangs etc.
Please, note that I do not copy my own faceup, or faceup by other artists, factory doll faceup.
I do not copy someone else style. I only paint dolls in my own style.
I can refuse to do some commissions if I think the task is beyond my skills.
I do not accept BJD recasts for faceup, sorry.

Portrait dolls info:
Do you now that choosing a good base for a portrait doll is everything?
The portrait likeness of my portrait faceup depends not only on my skills but on the sculpt itself. If the doll's head is sculpted with a few likeness to a real person, it will be a few likeness in my repaint/faceup. If you want a great portrait doll with a strong likeness to somebody, choose a well sculpted doll, please.
I usually do portrait faceup on portrait dolls. If you want a person's portrait on a doll, this doll ought to be sculpted from the same person or have very strong likeness with the person you want to be portrayed.
Please, send me a photo of your doll or portrait head if you don't know if the sculpt is good enough for a portrait faceup.

I accept for repaint or faceup only dolls packed with care. You should pack your doll in that way she can be transported back to you without any damage to her new faceup. All BJD heads must have a plastic protective mask.
In case of SD dolls I accept heads/hands/feet only, not full dolls because of their inconvenience for shipping and handling.
Smaller dolls can be sent for faceup as a full dolls.

Processing time:
I can't give you exact info about the time I need to paint your doll. Time varies. If I'm not satisfied with the result I redo the faceup several times till it looks perfect to me.

Changes in the ready work:
I usually do not change ready faceup. If you like my style and my faceup you never will be disappointed. I can do some minor changes (brighter lips, darker eyebrows etc.) if it's important for you.
Please, see my Flickr
https://www.flickr.com/photos/mary_vassilieva/collections
for examples of my faceup and repaints. Doing this may prevent disappointment. You should know what to expect.

Materials I use:

Painting - I use artist grade acrylic paints and dilutions for my faceup.
I use Mr. Super Clear for coating BJD faceup in the mix with Idea spray that is stronger than Mr. Super Clear itself.
I use doll eyelashes of high quality for BJD faceup.
I do not use customer's eyelashes, sorry.



Wigs, reroot and hairstyles:
I use saran hair for my BJD wigs and doll reroot. I perm saran with boiled water and made every type of curls and locks using my own technology.
Sometimes I use mohair tresses for BJD wigs if flyaway hairstyle without tricky styling required.

If you have questions send me convos, please.
