Bild Lalka

Welcome to the new flickr group devoted to LILLI LALKA dolls by Julian Kalinowski (aka Julian de Sade) & Elizabeth "Liz" Lee of Penny Dreadful Productions! The aim of these talented artists is to offer a high-grade, hand-finished fashion doll for an affordable price by using 1950's factory techniques.

Lalkas on parade

Lalka is a new generic Lilli - in the tradition of Hong Kong Lilli. She is 29cm tall {or 11.5 inches}. She is hand assembled and finished in Europe. The body parts are painted and strung with elastic. The face is airbrushed and hand-painted, then sealed. Everything is done as a proper factory process, using professional techniques and high-grade materials. The viscose hair is set into the pate of the head by hand, then glued. The pate is attached with a steel screw. The hair is set by hand. Beautiful Lilli wears classic fashions. She is a stunner with her knowing eyes, her flopsy spit curl or woven chignon. Lalka's quality and attention to detail are guaranteed to thrill.

Please, add only those photos from your photostream that feature Lilli Lalka and her older sister Lola {aka Saucy Miss, Pretty Penny}. Please, tag photos LALKA. Remember, photos not matching the group's spirit and theme may be removed by the curator without notice. Thanks!


More about Lilli Lalka:

Lalka is a limited edition. Both doll and outfit are numbered on an authentic sticker on the top of the sleek "cellophane" storage / display tube. Lalka comes complete with a miniature tabloid newspaper, a heavy white stand and "gold" metal spike to support her. Lalka is heavier in weight than her sister, Lola, and is heavier than vintage "Hong Kong Lilli" dolls. Lalka weighs much the same as a 1950's Lilli doll.

Brand new European Lilli Laka has some subtle changes to make her even more luscious than her predecessor, Lola. She has longer, more rounded arms and a new hand - just right for showing off her painted nails. Her head has been re-sculpted, with chubbier cheeks, a delicate pixie chin, cute little nose and a beautiful, elegant nape to her neck. She is far more like a mid-century original than any other Lilli-inspired doll made to date. Her hair, in classic ponytail, is viscose and finished off with a black plastic tie. Yes, she has a "pate" attached by a screw, just like the original doll. Some Lalka's model a woven chignon, sporting a hairstyle that best compliments their elegant fashion ensembles.

All new Lilli Lalka dolls are completely hand-finished, each and every one is now different, as every face is done by hand. No two are alike. This is NOT a production-line doll. Lilli Lalka's are all little characters with individual style. Every doll is stunning or they get chucked in the trash can!

Lilli Lalka's body is fully painted, strung, hard-plastic with hand-painted shoes. Her earrings and nails are also painted by hand. If you study close-ups of her face, you can see this doll is not factory screened - everything is hand-done. Her blusher and eyeshadow are all done "in house" - not on a production line.

All Lalka's are sold wearing fashions with specially woven labels that are hand stitched into her garments.
