Dollmakers on Thursday: Something Wonderful.

A doll is usually expected to be a human figure,

given to it by its creator or its playmate.

It is Someone.

So, I'm offering these as wonderful candidates for
 Dollmakers on Thursday 
because these

I hope you've enjoyed these as much as I have.
Just for extra awesomeness,
the artist is only
 nineteen years old.
