Bambu – Ball Jointed Doll
This is Bambu, my 2nd ball jointed doll design in collaboration with Juan Luis (www.jlmayen.com). It could be a girl or a boy, it depends of the make-up, clothes and wig you chose. Even you can change the head for another one that fits well! She has the following features: – Bambu (head + body): 26cm tall with chubby body – 7-8″ head circumference – 10 mm oval eyes. Body measures: – Height (including head): 26cm tall – Waist circumference: 15,5cm – Hips circumference:18cm – Leg length (groin to ankle): 11cm – Arm length (shoulder to wrist): 7,5cm – Feet length: 4cm.We do the silicon molds together, and then, the resin cast too, using professional machines like vacuum and preassure pot to say goodbye bubbles All the pieces have a hole to pass an elastic string through away. Then, I go on the work sanding, painting the make-up, taking photos and edit them, sewing clothes, preparing a beautiful package and all those things.
