Attention everyone – Bastian from Planet Zhen is looking for a new home with loving parents! Seriously the backstory to Little Cosmos Dolls is just too touching. There is a galactic war going on and the little orphans from the planets involved are sent to Earth to find new parents (you can find more about the background story here)
Since the second preorder for Bastian in tea skin has just started, meet Sandra, the artist behind Little Cosmos Dolls!

Welcome to There Be Dolls, Sandra. I am happy you found time for an interview!
Hi Elisa! I’m happy you proposed to make this interview with me!

Let me start with the introduction – you are from Spain, Barcelona exactly.
Spain is one of the leading European countries when it comes to BJD – how do you feel about it?
Yes, I’m from Barcelona. In France and Spain there are many sculptors, some of them quite known in the “artist BJD world”.  About that I feel very excited (because I know some of them, personally and I see that they are people, as in real people, and very nice and helpful) but also self-conscious, because I’m the new one in this artist world.

What was the first BJD sculpt/ company you fell in love with?
When I first saw a BJD I was surfing on google and I freaked out about the realism of the dolls! I don’t know which mold it was or the company, but I was in love with them all.
But the first one I fell in love with was an Adela from DIM with a faceup by Estebebe, I completely fell in love.

A while back I came across this adorable little crew of mice – in grey and white, dark eyed and big eared, looking both sweet and smart.
Those little mice were created by the Polish BJD artist Ewa from Atelier Murinae. They are called mouselings and are her first casted doll. They are casted by Haru Casting. The second order has just been finished and the dolls are on their way home. So let us share the love for those cute little mice and let us hear more about them and their creator Ewa.

Welcome to There Be Dolls – this is my first time welcoming a Polish BJD artist – but I have already realized that the Polish BJD scene is quite strong.

Thank you for having me! It is quite strong, we have some amazing doll sculptors such as Rosen Garden, Insomnia Creates Dolls and Buried in Oblivion, you should really check out their work.

Let us start with your little mouseling – what inspired you to make a little mouse doll?

I’ve always had a great affinity for rodents. As a kid I used to “rescue” baby mice from terrarium shops, so there was always at least one living with me. That’s why I wanted a mouse petdoll pretty much ever since I started collecting BJDs, but never could find one that I liked 100%. So I eventually decided to try and make that ideal doll myself. I wanted a natural teardrop shape, based on my own pet fancy mice, but with good poseability and anthropomorphized features.
