Today I am thrilled to share with you an interview I did with a member of one of the online doll groups I belong to.
Cryssi Van Laarhoven is a doll lover and artist who began customizing her dolls last winter and she has since customized 6 18 inch dolls and even made her Bitty twin Yuli, "grow up"
I asked Cryssi, what made her want to customize her dolls and she says it was a "Weird determination to do things just as good or maybe better after seeing some videos"
I also wanted to know what Cryssi liked most about customizing dolls and she shared that "It is the creativity and possibilities of the outcome."
The question I think that holds people back from customizing their dolls is well answered by Cryssi, to the question of what do you not like about customizing dolls she replied "messing up..."
I also asked Cryssi, if she had any advice for those of us thinking of customizing a doll and she had this to say...
"It's not easy, start slow, and remember, there are people out there who can offer advice or help."
Cryssi, has a wonderful fan page she has just started called Cryssis Vinyl Girls
