Johnsoni, Johnna for short, a custom Middie Blythe doll by me, Alter Ego dolls created for Blythecon Calgary 2020. Johnsoni is a Smiley Waffle base doll, bought new from Junie Moon and is themed after the Banff Spring Snail! Banff Spring snails are found only in Banff, Alberta, no where else in the world! I became quite enamored with this teeny tiny snail and dove into researching them. They are quite marvelous!


 She has been carefully and soundly constructed as a custom doll. She is no longer factory perfect.


Work done:

-faceplate carefully carved, sanded painted

-painted with Rembrandt pastels, Pan pastels , watercolor pencils

-sealed with MSC UV flat UV and finished with MSC UV Semi-gloss on the final coat

-1 pair of glass Puppelina blue eyechips
