Cardboard Cutie (2006)

I was really amazed when I saw these life size realistic sex-dolls made by companies like RealDoll or the japanese Aidoll.

I really would like to have one..or several....but when I saw prices are about 7000 U.S dollars..I decided to improvize and make a low budget poor man's version...

I picked up a lot cardboard boxes at the grocery shop and started cutting, these are the parts of the left shoulder before assembling..
the prints make tattoos

I gave her a ponytail, not only because I like ponytails but also to put the center of gravity a little bit back because otherwise she falls forward

In the end I didn't like her. she looks too cartoonesk so the next thing i'll have to do is to scan in a real person
