Dream from The Sandman by BishonenHouse Dream from The Sandman by BishonenHouse
A few months back i was commissioned by Ceiridwen R. to create a doll of Dream from The Sandman comic. Ive always been a big Sandman/ Neil Gaiman fan so i was completely overjoyed to get the chance to make a version of this character for someone.

After he was completed Ceiridwen decided to send photos of him to Dreams creator Mr Gaiman, He posted the letter from Ceiridwen plus the photos of the doll in His Blog!! needless to say I'm still giddy/honored/floored by this.

here's the link to Neils blog, [link] (Read Wednesday, January 24 "The War on Fame" entry

I sculpt my dolls in Chavant clay, from that i pull silicone molds and cast in a custom resin mix, i then drill my parts hollow and string with elastic (my dolls are completely poseable) i sand down the seams then paint on the makeups. His eyes are custom black eyes with a few flecks of fine holographic glitter, His wig is made from synthetic fur. His costume is by Dreux Priore.
I made the set from foamboard covered in vinyl spackle and textured to look like worn stone

So great! It's so scary because it looks real hehe (well, I guess the real lord of the dreams is very scary). So, great work with the background and the ambientation.

I am an extremely LARGE fan of the the ,Sandman comics, if fact I went out and blew a few paychecks to collect the awesome hard covered 'absolute Sandman' books.

Awesome job with the doll!! It's truly an honor worth carrying.

I am a huge fan of Mr. Gaiman's works, especially The Sandman. So I was pretty much blown away when I first saw this. I can't believe you created this beautiful doll yourself! I really appreciate even the tiniest details of your work. You are talented! Love it!

Thank you,. I think my work gets passed by often because (especially in the thumbnails) viewers just assume they are photos of people,.

One one hand, its the greatest compliment to me when my doll sculpts get mistaken for real people, on the other hand my work gets passed by on here often, haha ;-)

thank you again and thank you for the fave :-)
