The Boudior Girls


I've been having fun delving into the history of the Storyville brothels as this is going to be the backdrop for my next series of dolls.

I'd like to introduce you to Candy and Ruth. They both work for Madame Josie Alton, who owns one of the nicest bordellos down on Basin Street. Wealthy gentleman, politicians and men of high class visit Mdme Alton's often as she always has the prettiest and most well mannered girls. She calls them her nieces.

These dolls are a tad different that others I've done as they have jointed knees. I really love this as it makes the dolls even more animated. I might try the elbows next.

I'm working on some more of these dollies so stay tuned:)
