If you're a doll devotee, you can not live without FDQ (Fashion Doll Quarterly), a magazine dedicated to the grace, sensuality, and extraordinary charisma of those born of plastic (and other birthing materials).
Each issue is swollen with stunning imagery and incredible creations.
The ethereal beauty above is the creative spawn of Lyn Raftis.
"I'm all about the lips," says Raftis in the Autumn 2009 issue. "Color should look like it's coming from the skin, not applied to the skin." She adds: "I want skin markings to look like real moles and freckles on real skin, not like spots of paint on resin."
This ad for Angelic Dreamz, a frequent port of call for me, is mesmirizing.
Some of the most polished doll photography is found within the pages of this magazine.
With her visible ball-joints, this brilliant creation is a delicious take on the Frankenstein legend, and possesses a strange vulnerability.
Photograph is by Mercy Neumark.
Naturally, the cover girls of the 'Vintage' issue are classic Barbie dolls; Barbie celebrates her fiftieth issue this year (and she doesn't look a day older than...)
Some of the stunning work of Alexandra Forbes to be found in this issue.
For me, dolls never lose their power and magic.
