kirin preorder update

January 18th, 2015 by _d2_

after some consideration, i’ve decided to INCLUDE shipping in the price of the dolls for all customers.

so the total for a blank girl is $450 and for one with a face up/partial body blushing is $490.

the preorder remains open until 1/31/15.

some random kirin shots

January 13th, 2015 by _d2_

these are probably some of the last i’ll take of her for a bit as i need to work on some other dolls, but i wanted to share a few more pictures i took yesterday while learning to use my new lightbox.

i’m still in the “stupider than a novice” stage i’m afraid… perhaps if my lightbulbs for my lamps actually shone the color they were advertised to the pics would have turned out better. or if i had any actual decent photoshopping skills, that could help too…

the white girl – she’s turning more and more into a russian inspired princess. i’m hoping to make a long tailored coat for her with faux fur trim and embroidery… sadly most of the pictures i took of her turned out poorly.

and the tan girl – with this wig and crown i want to make her a nice poofy and black lolita outfit – something with lots and lots of lace…

kirin preorder 1/10/2015 ~ 1/31/2015

January 10th, 2015 by _d2_


1) preorder period is open from JANUARY 10TH through JANUARY 31ST midnight, OR until quantity is reached (10 translucent white skin and 10 translucent tan skin dolls will be available)

2) ALL kirin orders will come with nude doll, extra pair of SMALL hands, 8mm acrylic eyes (random color), and a faux fur wig from BERIBREW (random color). each doll is strung with elastic, and then wired from head to ankle to aid in posing.


blank doll only – $450
doll with face up – $490

there is no set face up – so if you order her with one, please leave details for how you would like her to be painted. face ups include blushing around the heart, chest, and hands. ordering a face up will require an additional week.

3) when you make your order, a NONREFUNDABLE deposit of $150 is due now – this covers the cost of having the doll cast in resin. the remaining balance will be due when the dolls are ready to ship.

4) the dolls will take approximately 2 to 3 months to make – i will make sure everyone stays updated for any delays or if the dolls arrive early.

5) please send orders to INFO @ CIRQUEDEFANTOMES.COM and include the following info -

a) name
b) address
c) order details
d) paypal email

6) once i receive your order info i will send you a paypal invoice for the down payment. if you have any questions, please send them to info @

7) dolls will ship out from oregon (united states). for international orders – packages will be marked at full value so that they can be fully insured.


* due to the translucent nature of the resin, some sub-surface flaws, such as air bubbles, are more visible in the white skin than in opaque resin.

* the tan color is solid through the resin, but due to the nature of the color sanding marks and seams may be more visible than on the white skin – i will do my best to minimize any finishing marks (scratches from sanding, the seam lines, ect) – if this bothers you please do not order tan skin

* each doll is cast by hand by donn at bishounen house and then finished by me, so there may be minor flaws (small bubbles at the edges of pieces, unfinished seam lines) however i will do my best to make sure these are at a minimum.

the start of the next thing

January 9th, 2015 by _d2_

this is just a couple of quick pics of the next step for kirin – a dreaming version of her with an eyelet lace inspired body.

i’m using a flumo cast of her head that i modified to have dreaming eyes, and a flumo cast of a base torso i created to work with kirin’s arms and legs (though to be honest, at this point i’m going to be modifying both of those as well to work better)


i've been drawing for as long as i could hold a pencil and art became my first language. though i've only been sculpting since 2007, i fell in love with the idea of being able to bring my drawings to life. i am heavily inspired by medieval macabre artwork, japanese yokai, and oddly enough, sherlock holmes. currently i'm living just south of beautiful portland oregon ^^
