Ooh Binnur, she looks like the lovely Bony recently featured on the Sisters' instagram! Congratulations, those blue eyes are gorgeous! I hope we can see a photo of all your beautiful ballerinas together soon!  heart

Your prima ballerina is gorgeous, Morpho Helena. The flowers really pick up the color of her eyes.  Very Happy 

Thank you, Jill....You were right....She came in about four days from the Ukraine. Pretty impressive service that FED EX.

She came just as the violets were blooming so I couldn't resist taking this picture!

Yes, merrijane, she IS the Bony from the recent Instagram. I was so excited when I saw that post that I wrote to Igor asking him if she was mine. When he confirmed, I was so incredibly happy....She is even more beautiful in person. I am always so amazed that these dolls that look so huge in the photos are actually so very tiny in real life. I can't fathom how one could paint those tiny eyes.....

No matter how many times I see the Sisters' painting, it continues to be impressive. Your Bony looks absolutely amazing! What a divine doll! I love this 3/4 view <3.

Thank you mellara and xgrincheux. I LOVE where the Sisters put the tattoo, too. It's always there, like a little jewel on her neck....I don't know what her name will be yet----I'm waiting until something comes to me----but she is the Prima Ballerina of the group. She was a child prodigy and now she is coming into her own as a young lady.... flower flower flower

I completely agree with Orangey... no matter how many times I see the Sisters' work, I am left speechless.  MorphoHelena, your Bony is certainly no exception.  Gorgeous portrait photo; Jill is right, the violets really set off her eyes!  I'm positively awestruck....  Shocked

The "moth" painting is like a "beauty mark". So pretty!

Thank you so much Orangey....I love, LOVE my little as-yet-unnamed ballerina....I couldn't imagine a better, more beautiful Bony for me.. I wanted an innocent yet beautiful look for a child prodigy coming into her own as a Prima Ballerina and the Sisters perfectly and seamlessly filled the bill. flower

Thank you BelleNolia.   I am just unabashedly thrilled with my new little principal dancer.  I do agree with everyone; the Sisters' work just gets better with each new doll.  The dolls we have seen lately like matilla's and mine are just incredible.  Superlatives escape me. hearts

Thank you, mayple, she is a dream come true for me, as well. Wouldn't it be nice if they were made of porcelain, as well as the beautiful resin? People would be lining up to be able to get them...

MorphoHelena, have you handled a porcelain BJD? What I love about the Popovy resins is their posing. I've really never handled another BJD that poses as well and holds the pose the way they do. I have wondered if that could be achieved with porcelain. Jill

Jill - I have a porcelain ED. She poses beautifully. It's not the material but the mastery of the design and joints that dictates the posing - a porcelain Popovy would be an unbeatable beauty and master of posing :-)

I understand, Mayple, about the design. My thought was whether the joints could be so beautifully aligned with the porcelain and if the lining at the joints would be too different. I would love to have a porcelain BJD that poses like the PD resin dolls. I do think that porcelain has a patina to it that I have never seen with resin--and some of my best resin dolls have yellowed over time.

I have never been as impressed with the posing of a BJD as I have the PD, but I don't have a ED so cannot compare the two. I would be happy to have one of yours visit with me. Surprised)

Yes, I have to second mayple, Jill.  I come from the world of antique dolls so I don't have a lot of BJDs except for EDs and Popovy Dolls.  But both the Popovys and the porcelain EDs pose and hold their poses equally well..... flower

Thank you, 415EA. I love my Bony very much and even more so as she was painted during this tumultuous time in the Ukraine. She is a triumph of Art over politics. artist

Thank you katieq. Like I have said before, I come from the world of antique doll collecting but the Popovys won me over with their stunning beauties and their remarkable talents in miniature clothing design. I eagerly await their latest collections. They are a breath of fresh air in the doll universe. flower

Thank you Ilse for your sweet words. I do enjoy photographing my dolls immensely. It is a real source of pleasure and a welcome respite from the stress of the "real" world. It affords me a chance to play with color and composition which I enjoy very much. My friends think it is crazy for a grown woman to still "play" with dolls, but 'to each his own', I guess! flower
