My name is Blue and I live in Liverpool, in the UK. I began collecting play dolls, mainly the hard-bodied vinyl kind that stand around 18″ tall, in late 2010. My first doll was a Gotz Hannah and her Dog, but “the gang” has rather grown since then.
A Doll’s Day is a blog about dolls: collecting them, dressing and posing them (never too old to enjoy such things after all, I’m 41) and will feature articles, photographs, links and background information about various brands and designers and hopefully interviews and even videos one day.
There is a definite UK bias here, in terms of wanting to mainly showcase dolls and resources available to folk in the UK: many of the US doll manufacturors will not sell directly to Europe due to safety legislation and other reasons. This is no reason to exclude them, just more fun to highlight things that are reasonably attainable.
I try to include useful links and resources, and because it drives me mad seeing enticing photos of dolls with little information, hopefully everything featured here will have a full description as well as where the clothes etc came from, in case folk want to hunt down the same for themselves.
I love to hear from fellow doll lovers, so feel free to comment on posts, or add my blog to your own site (and ask me to reciprocate).
All the doll photos are also featured on my Flickr page, A Doll’s Day on Flickr.
