This,is probably the most controversial release of the last years in the dolly world.And not without reasons.

The Stephen Burrows'dolls had not the same reception and acceptance than other dolls of great names of Fashion,celebrated by Mattel.
Alazne(a 2012 release),the second Burrows' doll,was the most criticized of the two others,the first release and the last one.
The highest point about her,comes from the surpriseingly absurd idea from Mattel,that made a hole in the top of the head of a golden label doll,just to hold on it a fashion helmet.
Everybody knows that Mattel do repetedly,lots of mistakes,that the quality of their products is something that we can often suspect,but in that case,what happened was a show of stupidity and lack of respect by the customers.
|The Awful Hole!|
That was my personal choice!I was not mistaken,
when I bought my Alazne,that I call SHANTY,and the hole trouble,was a challenge,that came with the doll in itself.
I thought it could be a great chance to create my first doll flocking.The opportunity came at the same time it was possible to find the flock on sale by some handcraft stores in São Paulo.
We were at the end of 2014,and I believe that it was not possible to find flock for sale here,
before 2012 or 2013.So,the moment couldn't be better for my first try.
Even having only some days ago the time for this try.I followed the indications of the Emilia's tutorial on Flickr to make it,and I discovered that it's something really simple to do,if you obey the rules for do not touch the flock on the surface you are applying,while it's wet.That's serious!I also understood that a drawing or a painted area for you to apply the glue(before the flock),will helps a lot to do a job well finished.
For a first try I can say I'm not dissapointed with myself...
It's so nice not see anymore that hole!(LOL!)
|2014 New Year's Eve|
Even before the flocking,at her first appearance here on the blog,opening 2015,I believe that was possible for everybody understand how awesome she is,and how incredible is her photogenic potential.
Actually,this same photo session,it's in my opinion(exactly for the capture of her!),the best job I done on doll photography.For that reason and for all the controversy around the release of this golden lable doll,I took the decision to keep her by now as the only muse among my pieces.Inspiring me with her exotic beautiful face,her elegance and the head now as it should be:without a incomprehensible hole and ready for captures,no matter the angle!
All about the choice of Shanty,as her name,it's gonna be told soon,
when I'll introduce the new "girl":Veroque!
