Evolution of the Doll!
This is the last doll folks...

This week's doll star is...Gregor!

Base Artist: Young An

Artist Background: Painter and curator who always wears high heels. It's amazing really. She paints, she curates exhibitions left and right and she can whip up a mean Korean barbecue all on 3" heels. How does she do it? In-soles.

Base Round: Three pristine white canvases. Seems normal enough at this moment right? Oh, just you wait. Does the term psychotic break mean anything to you? Yeah, well keep on reading.

Round One: Lena Linoleum

Evolutionary Change: My progeny painted a very ominous scene on two of those formerly clean white canvases.

Round Two: LadyLinoleum

Evolutionary Change: Going with the daughter's flow, more paint. Yes incidentally, I CAN paint. I just don't paint too often anymore. Unless of course it involves a can of Krylon and a spray booth.

Round Three: Stevie

Evolutionary Change: Ahhh, there ya go. Legs turn them thar canvases from mere art to doll.

Round Four: Stacy

Evolutionary Change: Heavy metal hair fun!

Round Five: Stephanie

Evolutionary Change: Fleshed out with plastic netting.

Round Six: Dyane

Evolutionary Change: Um yeah, EXTREME makeover...Like I said above, the term psychotic break fits perfectly.

Round Seven: Jonna

Evolutionary Change: It's like an episode of Nip/Tuck over here...Facelift or maybe faceshift is the more apropos term.

Round Eight: Bea

Evolutionary Change: It is now a winged thing!

Round Nine: Laurel

Evolutionary Change: Footsies.

Round Ten: Janet

Evolutionary Change: Hookah and beaded butterfly buddies because when you've had that much surgery a little tobacco is not an issue.

Round Eleven: Bee

Evolutionary Change: Lashes and bangles, but of course.

Whoa! It's very cool, but you lost the fantastic paintings. I think I like it best at round 5. I'm gonna miss this series.

The cocoon of a butterfly. You know butterflies when in caterpillar form can devour forests in a heart beat. The doll is beautiful. Welcome to the Thanksgiving holday!
