Sephiroth by BishonenHouse Sephiroth by BishonenHouse
Here's a closeup portrait style pic of Sephiroth, My Sephiroth is based more on the gaunt Advent Children Sephiroth than the character from the game. Or at least what little of him you can see in the Advent Children trailers ;-)

My original sculpt is in Chavant clay, from that i pulled silicone molds and cast in a custom resin mix, i then drill my parts hollow and string with elastic (my dolls are completely poseable) i sand down the seams then paint on the makeups. The eyes are 17mm handmade masterpiece silicone eyes, his wig is mod acrylic, his armor is vacuformed "1/8 styrene, his costume was made by Dreux Priore "all of those little buckles and belts actually work" :-)

that is truly amazing that you can do that. i have the sephiroth action figurine and yours is the best. I wish I could do something like that. I would want to make dolls of the characters I created.

sweet I love Sephiroth sooo much. I sculpt aswell but nothing ever that good I can't do faces so I just stick with animals. I made a doll out of sculpey..it didn't turn out at all I couldn't even string it right, how do you string them things? I can sew I know how to sew the clothing I...I've always liked making things for my stuffies to wear >> and maybe my kitty and doggies...hehe yeah so thats no problem. looking at your work though gives me the itch to sculpt like mad! wish I had a job I'd so commission you for my main man in the newest sculpt you have since I've been sent the monthly newsletters and such. everytime I see these it just makes me itch more and yeah I get jealous and well long for the day when I get to hold one of these magnificant dolls *cries* anyways...I must go and draw something now x-x no have no clay ><

I saw you at Otakon and was totally drooling over Sephiroth. But I was wondering how much a doll of Axel from Kingdom Hearts 2 would cost. If you could tell I'd love that. Cause that's the doll I want. ^-^ And after seeing the work you did on Sephiroth and Cloud...I knew I would go through you. ^-^

Thanks, Axel would be around $875, normally id charge more because of his weapons but to be honest with you id love to try and make his weapons just for the fun of it :-)

Great job! You must've put your flesh and blood into it ;)

It's raises suspicions within me, the way the world works. Just this afternoon I was in a comic book shop and they had Advent Children playing on the tele. Having been so focused on doing school properly this semester I haven't been paying attention to anime and video games for quite a while I was totally thrown by the animation and the character designs! Crazy stuff, that was. But the squirrely thing is that I c ame across your page somehow and lo, there's Sephiroth. I'm familiar with the character from FF of old, but to encounter two of the same previously unknown incaarnation of him in a single afternoon? That's just silly stuff, right there!

Your dolls are fantastic! I'm in the process of learning the world of stop motion animation, and I've become curious about different ways of making figures for it. I've found that my ball jointed drawing manequinnes are brilliant for the media, but they're rather ugly and not as human shaped as they'd like to be. Finding the little fellows to be a little short of what I'm looking for, I have been looking through pages and pages of doll images, wondering if some doll making technique will inspire me. Your collection has certainly helped add to the heap of thoughts to be used in brainstorming. And they're super-pretty! A definate plus!

Good luck getting your store website up and running, I'm curious to see what shows up : )

thank you im gald you like my dolls :-)

It is odd how the world works isnt it, I like to call them "event strings" when an event connects and ties so neatly to a completley different but complementary thing. its like when 3 people who you havent heard from in 6 months all decide to call you on the same day..... makes you wonder whats going on behind the scenes huh :-)

I havent actually gotten to see Advent Children yet, ive only seen just trailers but what little of it ive seen does look amazing! Im a big stop motion fan so i think its cool that your wanting to try your hand at it, i keep putting it off but i want to try and see if my dolls are animatible, they do hold a pose quite well so im sure its possible :-)

My store finally opened a day ago, and ive already sold out of all the clothes and ive sold 2 dolls and ive sold out of the wigs i make and a few other things. Im very happy but a bit overwhelmed (but in agood way) :-)

take care

I hate to ask but how much do your dolls cost? Or do you not sell them?
Your sculpting is gorgeous! I'm glad I came across your page. I told a few of my girlfriends about it, so I'm sure they will all be visiting your page also!
My boyfriend just recently made me a doll of himself. I'd attach a photo of it but I don't know how on here. He doesn't know how to sculpt or sew, he's a musician, but it came out really cute! I told him he should keep working on them.

BishonenHouse Featured By Owner Sep 8, 2005  Professional
Yes i do sell them :-)

My online store wont be up untill the 16th but theres the addy [link] the gallery is up and a FAQ and Bio page is up as well.

For a base doll with no hair or makeup or customization they start out at $650 for a completed character like Tyler with makup, hair, a complete costume with boots, and custom eyes $850. for characters with more complicated outfits and custom props the price goes up. I do get a few people who like to make their own wigs/clothes buying the base dolls but most people want dolls that look like particular characters/people so i sell allot more of those.

Awww your boyfriends self portrait doll sounds really sweet, he sounds like a really great guy :-)

Oh cool. I assumed they would be around $800.00-ish. Because that's what the super dollfie dolls go for. I showed your deviant art pictures to my boyfriend. And he loved them. I told him I mentioned the doll he made for me to you. He said, "Nooo! That guy is super professional. he'll hate mine." hehe I told him that the first doll you made probably looked a lot different then the dolls you do now, and you most likely have gotton better each time. But he was still horrified. He's funny. He made it for me because he lives in Holland and I am here in America. When he was in high school he made boots, so he knew how to make the tiny boots. He "faked" the sewing of the PVC pants and the jacket with studs. He sculpted the head himself even though he had no idea what he was doing. Anyway it turned out really cute and pretty detailed for someone who doesn't do that type of thing.
How did you decide to start making the dolls?
How many do you make a year?
All my friends I showed your page to loved it! Too bad none of my friends are rich. *pouts*
The gallery is really nice. Did you photograph the dolls yourself? The pictures are really nice.
Ok I'll check out your online store after the 16th. Thanks for letting me know!
Hugs,

Hi Laurah

Thats so cool!! you didnt freak when i told you the price!!! Thank you! :-) most people that arent used to seeing the prices on art dolls or dollfies usually start sputtering and stuff when i tell them the prices, it always makes me crazy.

Yep there made allot like a super dollfies, except bigger. the jointing and sutch is very slimilar.

Aww your boyfriend sounds really cool, Wow! thats really impresive that he made the boots and everything, I order my boots from Japan and Hong Kong cause boots are hard to make! :-)

I used to be a puppet builder, and ive always sculpted and like designing clothing, doing makeups/hair, setbuilding and propmaking,.. so making dolls just kinda was a way to combine a bunch of my interests
It took almost 9 months to complete all my master sculpts and molds, so i didnt actually start making finished dolls untill May, ive made 14 so far . For characters of medium complexity i can make about 3 dolls a month. for more complicated dolls with props and complicated costumes it can take a months per doll.

Thank you for telling your friends about my stuff :-) Yes i take all of my own photos, i love taking pics of them, actually i think i like taking pics of them almost as mutch as i like making them ;-)

take care!

Donn,
hehe Well I'm in art too. I know that people don't realize how long it takes people to custom make things. And how much work it is. I think your dolls are totally worth $800.00+ !! I mean they are so detailed and gorgeous. After I pay up for my wedding, I'd love to have a doll made by you. *smiles* So usually when you tell people the price they don't take it so well? *imagines someone spitting out their drink and coughing for 5 minutes * :)
Have you photographed all 14 of your dolls? If not what did they look like? Is Tyler yours?
I wanted to show Wim the boots you bought for Tyler. I remember you had a link, but I can't find it now. Can you give it to me? He was curious, because he wears boots similair to those. I think WIm thought the boots were the easy part. hehe
What kind of puppets did you make?
My friend Aonochi already deviant watched you. (or however you say that)
So can dolls have mohawks? I've never seen one.
Have you made a doll that looked like you?
I bet you are looking forward to Corpse bride? hehe
Take care,
Hugs,
~Laurah

Hi Laurah

Artists, or people into the arts never bat an eye when i give them prices, Its just those types that cant understand what the difference is between one of my one of a kind dolls and a G.I. joe from toys-r-us those are the ones that usually do a double take.

Im really glad you think my work is worth it, congrats on your wedding, Ive only photographed The Dolls that i make for myself... (actually there is a photo of an unfinished doll that was sold in the scraps section, he doesnt look like mutch since his clothes and makeup wasnt finished) I have another doll that i made for myself just recently that i havent photoed yet, ill try and take a pic and get him posted in the next week.

And yes Tyler in mine, Hes my favorite, I could remake him easily if somone wanted a doll like him, but id never sell him :-)

When i used to do puppetry work, i did both mechanical type puppets (a pic of one that i made is at the top of my artist bio on my webpage)

[link]

I also did muppety type puppets as well, i hope to eventually get good pics of all that stuff and get it posted

(ignore my photo at the bottom of my bio, i was so out tired that day my friend came over and took it, i need a new one, i looked like death that day "and not in a good way" ) ;-)

I got tylers boots from dollheart

[link]

Tylers boots were limited editions, if you click shop, doll shoes, and then "shoes for sd10/13" and scroll down they still have a pic of them up even though they are sold out. some of the pics in the gallery on my site show afew diffrent shots where you can see his boots as well,..aside from nude shots of tyler, lol

I just added Aonochi today,..im a bit behind, and im still learning how to use DA :-)

I would love to do a doll with a mohawk, but my heads have headcaps that are removable (so you can move or change the eyes, or so you can take off the head in case you want to change it completely or restring the doll) and a mohawk wouldnt hide the headcap seam,...

Ive never made a doll that looked like me, my friends keep bugging me to do it (only so they can put it in lewd poses im sure) LOL, I probably will eventually just for the heck of it.

And i cant wait to see the Corpse Bride!! hehe, im a big Burton fan and the Nightmare Before Christmas is my favorite film of all time!!! :-)

Take care,
Don
