Bru Jne 8 head on antique Chevrot body

I mounted Bru Jne 8 head on antique Chevrot body today. I have been waiting this moment for quite some time. In order to find the right head to go with this antique body, I fired probably 10 heads at least. Antique Bru dolls come with 17 different sizes from size zero to 16 and each head has only slight size differences. I originally thought Bru Jne 6 would work for this body but turned out the head is too small. I have fired head of Bru Jne 7, 8, 9 and 11 and found out Bru Jne 8 fits the best. However, this particular mold does not have the shape of the mouth I like, so I had to make some changes. I am sooooo glad I was able to finish this head just in time. Now I can’t wait to finish the costume!!



These are the different size heads  I have tried on this body. Only Bru Jne 8 fits correctly on this antique body.                               このボデイーのために焼いてみたヘッドの数々。全部サイズがビミョウに違います。


Lunch meeting in London

Program : Show and tell of my Bru Jne 8 doll with antique Chevrot body. We will study about Chevrot body and antique doll costuming.

Originally I was not planning to sell any of my dolls at this meeting but I did get request for purchase option so the Bru Jne 8 with antique body I am making right now will be for sale on site. I am also taking three Bru heads with antique eyes for sale. They can be purchased as head only or I can finish the doll with or without a dress after customer choose to buy a head. They are two 16 inch Bru Jne 6 head and one 14 inch Bru Jne 4 head as you see on picture below. These three Bru heads are offered to meeting participants only but Bru Jne 8 with antique Chavrot body will be for sale on my website if she did not sell at the meeting.
