What exactly is an art doll:

From this article, Art Dolls: Facts and Fancies, on Etsy:

What is an art doll? This is as loaded a question as What is art?

Theres no hard and fast definition to be found for an art doll. They can be made out of almost any medium or several different media. They come in various shapes, sizes, styles, and designs. They can be very realistic or abstract with barely anything recognizable on them. They can be human, humanoid, anthropomorphic, alien, fantasy, sci-fi, or just about anything in between.

From Wikipedia, Art Doll:


Art dolls are objects of art, rather than children's toys, created in a wide variety of styles and media, and may include both pre-manufactured parts or wholly original works....Art dolls production demand a wide range of skills and technologies, including sculpting, painting, and costuming. They are often multimedia objects made from materials such as fabric, paperclay, polymer clay, wax, wood, porcelain, natural or synthetic hair, yarn, wool, and felt.


These doll will not necessarily be kid friendly (you don't have to use safety eyes, can have wire hair poking out, etc.). So yeah, whatever you want to do, rigid or squishy, humanoid, or other. Grin Your partner will likely influence the form and direction your doll takes. I am getting pretty excited about this one now. Grin

OOO can I fit this in? I love strange dolls...in fact those standard girl dolls and baby dolls are the creepy ones. The strange ones just need love.

I will have to think on this...but not too long. Sign up deadline is not far off.

... Sign up deadline is not far off.

Sorry about that. I have an event to work the weekend of the fourth and wanted a longer crafting period, so the sign-up time is what got shortened. If there is a desire for a longer sign-up time I can certainly extend it. Cheesy
