Commencing nini studio doll "chilly day": a rogues' gallery

Dear Diary,

Jesse:  I have just had an email from Jonny in which he tells  me that he has begun work on my boy doll.  We can all watch on Facebook the creative process Jonny will use to make "Chilly Day" boy a reality.  I've never had a doll specially made for me - it's quite a new experience.  It's a pleasure to share this with my followers.

I thought that now it would be fun to look at how Jonny has brought his other boy dolls to life, from sketch to doll.  This isn't a rogues' gallery in the strictest sense; none of these boys are shady characters!  I am just having some word fun to describe this list of 'mug shots'.

What an adventure this is turning out to be!  Stay tuned and be sure to check Nini Dolls Facebook page for updates.


  1. I love the rogues gallery Jesse!
    It's my absolute delight to be creating my new boy 'Chilly Day' for you. I know he has some wonderful new friends in store and a chair waiting especially for him.
    I'll be sure to add photos of his progression to the Nini Doll website and Facebook page and hope that he will be everything that you hope for and maybe more. I will also in turn direct doll collectors to your wonderful blog.
    Best wishes and thank you,

  2. How wonderful that your boy ' Chilly Day' is about to start becoming reality! Jonny's dolls are just so wonderful, I cannot wait to see him evolve from Jonny's sketch into a 'real' boy sitting in his chair in his new home!
    You must be so excited.

  3. These dolls are so amazing and full of personality. The sketches alone are works of art. It a pleasure to watch this project progress.

  4. How fortunate to have a boy doll by Jonny made especially for you. It is exiting to watch the progression of the doll from sketch, photo andreality.
