Enchanted Doll - Highbrow craftsmanship just reached a whole new level of creepy [NSFW]

I don't even remember how I stumbled over these. I first found the Enchanted Doll galleries a few years back, then promptly forgot how I found them. And then, a month or so ago, I re-found, suddenly struck by inspiration and googling a few phrases.

(NSFW after the break)

I can't get my head around the concept of super articulation in porcelain. Isn't that - weird? Wouldn't the porcelain grate when sockets were moved? I don't know. A wizard must have done it.

This is all the work of one lady - who molds, sculpts, paints and sews for these tiny things, as well as beading, embroidering, crocheting, metalworking, welding and god knows what else. It's totally incredible what she's managed to attach to these dolls.

I want one, SO badly, but beyond the prohibitive cost (a grand, give or take) I'm a little bit creeped out by them. They all look so harrowed and small and wretched. Beautiful, but still - eek. I don't know. And the boy dolls are even creepier. Especially since the one she keeps using for the gallery pics totally looks like the Beast in Beauty in the Beast after he turns into a dude. And she's given them sadly small penises. Michaelangelo's David is better hung than these little porcelain guys.

I'm just so amazed at the artistry that goes into these. How does one person possess that kind of talent?  It's unfair. 

All images from - DO check it out, cos OMFG.
