Dolldrums art dolls are collectable dolls made for grown up boys and girls and are not intended for children. They are designed for 120% cuteness that doesn't include the touchy feely kinda love - but rather the visual kind as you walk by and see them peering at you from a shelf above. Zombies heads and limbs are easily decapitated, so if you don't want blood spilt all over your floor then just leave them to enjoy your surroundings, in a nice peaceful zombie like way.

REMEMBER be unique like you, not unique like me

About

Grown up dolls for strange boys and creepy girls.

Dolldrums dolls: Grown up dolls for strange boys and creepy girls.
My name is Kylie Dexter, I am internationally exhibited self-taught felt sculpture artist from Melbourne Australia. When I first started making these dolls I wanted to give life to a world that existed in my imagination, it was a vivid and very real world that formed early in my childhood. A world filled with distinct characters, lifelike dreams and strange experiences. All the dolls I owned as a child were modified to create darker versions of their former selves and any of my early work always reflected my love of the strange. Sometimes taking this direction can be more difficult when studying art as my work was often labelled morbid or appalling, although nowadays it is becoming far more acceptable to lean towards a more diverse style. Being this sort of artist you can’t change the way you work. I draw inspiration from anything the evokes a sense of mystery, I have been fascinated by Jim Henson’s early work, the re-emergence of the Japanese Blythe dolls and the Pop Surrealist artists from the late 1990’s onwards.
When I first experienced movies like The Dark Crystal, Never Ending Story and Labyrinth in my pre teen years, it ignited a passion to bring life to puppet-like characters although it would take many more years to fully realise my vision. These creations with their simple features somehow evoke complex moods and emotions, you know you cannot create art that would be deemed traditionally acceptable while remaining true to yourself, I think it’s time to restore a balance within the artistry of dolls.
I love each and every soul (doll) I create, I hope you find a doll you can connect with and that you find a home in each other.

Each felt doll is OOAK and lovingly felted.I love to find a way to represent the beauty that can be found in the creepy darker side of life. I am inspired by anything a little off tap.
