Of course I could not go to KDF and not visit the stand of my favourite doll makers Julie Campbell and Jain Squires.
They did not disappoint and I was drawn immediately to Julie's absolutely fantastic flying witch.
The photographs have come out appallingly but I am sure you can see what a original piece she is and perfect for Diagon Alley.
The dress flows beautifully and she looks like she has had a very successful visit to the Alley.
I love all the little details like the cameo.....
.......and fingerless gloves. I can't wait to display her on the roof of one of my finished shops. One day!
On Jain's stand I noticed this little character straight away. I have quite a few witches now so I knew this little chap was a must buy.
Jain's people always have so much character. This goblin just ooozes naughtiness...
Perhaps he lost that eye when Harry freed the dragon in Gringott's Bank?
I adore his star buttons and cheeky feather in his hat.
Both Jain and Julie are putting a few of their pieces into their Etsy shops over the next few weeks so do have a look at more of their wonderful work.
Last, but certainly not least, my next stop was to see Sarah Hendry of Pocket People whose cats I adore. This time I went for a Persian for my collection. He is looking very happy in his new home outside the Apothecary.
Such treasures will need a perfect back drop, so on with the building and construction work!
