Handmade Heirloom Dolls by Lou Lou & Oscar


My work is often inspired by the written word, by fragments of text & half-remembered lines of poetry. An interest in cryptozoology, hybrid identity & natural history feeds into many of the creatures I create, I can frequently be observed staring out to sea hoping to catch a glimpse of the giant squid!

What is a cryptozoology? You may ask. Google search "cryptozoology is the search for and study of animals whose existence or survival is disputed or unsubstantiated, such as the Loch Ness monster and the yeti." Interesting? I learn something new every day.

Below are beautiful heirloom dolls designed and handmade by Lisa Aaron - the owner of Lou Lou & Oscar

In her bio - "I live and work in Edinburgh and have exhibited my work internationally. After completing studies in english literature & modern continental philosophy I worked as a Librarian in London for many years. Since 2009 I have focused on designing & making creatures & contemporary wall hangings."

Aren't these dolls adorable in their little stylish dresses? Their dresses are simply beautiful. It reminds me to be more stylish on my day to day fashion. 

Do you feel the same way?
