Dust of Dolls
Dust of Dolls is a French company owned by Nyo and Lyly Pie. Both have been making dolls for several years but their first common work has been released in 2009. All dolls are selfmade, designed, sculpted and casted by Nyo and Lyly pie. So far three molds have been sold under the Dust of Dolls' label : Tank, Camy and Püns. Using the faceplate system, they have very different and unique features.
- Tank is a 39cm doll with a realistic headmold, a thin and androgeneous body with bowed legs. She's considered a girl. She's not sold anymore and only a few have been released since 2009, in normal an white skin. She was partial or full set, with make-up only or completely customized like the Amyas Crale collaboration with French seamstress Edhelwen. Her unique body shape makes her difficult to dress with other companies' items but she can generally wear yoSD-size clothing, though sleeves and pants may be too short.
- Cammy, an earlier 2008 work of Nyo has been re-released on Tank's body in 2010.
- Püns is a 25cm doll first released in 2010, on the basis of an earlier Lywann's work named Taupe. She has been first released in a limited edition of four fullsets, in special skintones and face-ups, at the LDoll Festival in France. Her small breast and wide hips give her a pear-shaped body, while her low ears and sad eyes make her ideal for fantasy customizations. Only a few have been released in regular skintones. The dollmakers like to experiment colours on her. Püns is now in the process of being more largely available, especially for overseas collectors, with more of her sleeping faceplate.
