Guest Post: The Doll Scene Book Review

Posted on September 23, 2014 by

This is a guest post by Miss Muffcake, who’s on the shortlist to become one of SCK’s new writers. Have a read and tell us what you think!

the doll scene

I recently picked up a copy of The Doll Scene by Louis Bou. This book is perfect for fans of Blythe, Pullip, Monster High and other ball jointed dolls. Even if you are not a doll collector or doll hobbyist the book is full of cute images, outfit inspiration and cute crafty skills.

A hefty little book at 256 pages, mostly photos and a few artist bios, you get tons of eye candy. Colorful, unique and super cute dolls range from stylized clothing to colorful wigs and fun accessories. Each artist is able to transform their doll subject into more than just plastic; they give them a style and vibe that is one of a kind. You will not look at dolls the same way again.

We’d like your input as we choose new writers so please leave a comment if you’d like to see more posts like this, or if it’s not your cup of tea (but please be nice!). This is our last applicant – we’ll be posting another 1 or 2 posts by each writer over the next few weeks so look out for your favourites and give them some love!

    I know she wants to bring to light the darker art of kawaii. I hope she’s given the opportunity to do that. And she’s vegan too!

    This looks like such a cute book- worth it for the cover art alone! Thank you MissMuffcake for bringing this to our attention!

    Sounds like an interesting book, but this review is pretty generic…
