Emma by Bo Bergemann
The pre-order period for my Designer Dream dolls is complete. I am delivering them now. But read on for info. on the next Dream Doll Offering . . .
The doll body shown above and below is my brand new slim MSD immature body little girl doll body that I've dubbed my Dream Doll Body because it poses and balances like a dream and clothing drapes off her slim lines like the best model! I had four face sculpts for this body in my Designer Dream Doll Offering which sold out 3x over: Emma, Sophia, Bella & Bree.
Body photos, measurements & info. on my Dream Dolls can be found after the Emily sneak peak lower on this same page, so just keep scrolling down.
The pre-order period for these dolls was held June 1-June 30th, 2012.
I am leaving this info. up for those receiving their dolls who wish to begin sewing and . . .
because my Dream Doll body was such a success I am already planning my next Dream Doll Offering. It will not be the same as my Designer Dream Doll Offering was. I will have new sculpts (and maybe one favorite from the first offering) all of which I will be showing and sharing in Dec-Jan with a tentatively planned pre-order in Feb 2013 for delivery in May of 2013.
Of course this is all subject to further planning. But I can give you a sneak peak of one new sculpt that will be available in that offering! Emily is shown below.
She was inspired by my BabyFat dolls on Pre-Order Now Here! She makes the perfect big sister!
She is my popular Bella doll's cousin. A bit on the sweeter side, but she can also be left in charge of the little ones and hold her own just fine! Of course, with Bella, she tends to follow not lead most of the time as even I don't dare cross Bella! Yet, they are also fast forever friends!
Below you'll find more info. measurements in a couple of forms and fit info. for my Dream Dolls in general both the Designer Dream Doll Offering delivering now, The Toy Shope Exclusive and the DH Exclusives delivering in Nov-Dec 2012, and future Dream Doll Offerings. First up is Sweet Emma in her undies!
Bella was not thrilled with the idea of modeling in her undies and let me know it!
Shoulder to shoulder 8cm
Wrist 4 cm
Foot length 5.5cm
Foot Width 2cm
Bella & Bree wear a size 7-8 Monique wig (19cm around ears for usual wig measurement, and 10cm over back from forehead hairline to bottom of wig cap at brain stem and 12cm top of ear to top of ear around the back of the head) and Emma, Sophie & Zoe wear a size 6-7 wig (18cm/9cm/10cm - same places measured above on Bella/Bree respectively).
Body Type & Size Comparison Info.
These doll bodies will easily wear many clothes made from patterns for slim MSD BJD’s like Narae/Unoa (small bust) or 16” Dollmore, Fairyland MiniFee & some others. Their measurements are actually a wonderful fit for many GraceFaerie patterns and some MHD Designs patterns as well as others. They can trade clothing with any of these dolls mentioned for patterns above and some Goodreau as well as 14” Kish & some Ellowyne clothing too. This doll’s body is long lithe and muscular, a dancer body type as seen on healthy active 9-15 year old girls before any real signs of a figure set in. She does have a nice little bubble butt and a very tiny natural lower tummy pooch. I modeled her body after my 11 3/4 year old daughter who is active in swimming and gymnastics. There is not a spare ounce of fat or flesh on her. Because of this, the doll is a beautiful slim immature MSD body type and wears many types of outfits beautifully much like a young model! Regular MSD patterns can also be used if sized down (slimmed a bit) to work for this doll.
Shoe Size & Comparison
All of these dolls wear Slim MSD shoes (Narae/Unoa) or 14” Kish doll shoes and 20”Cissy shoes well in addition to those I have made for them. JuJu's Dolly Mall has shoes to fit most of my dolls! Scroll down below the pattern links to see actual nude doll photos and blank basic sculpts from several angles. If you do not want to see nude dolls or unpainted angles, do not scroll down any further.
I am happy to answer questions any time.
Links are not all linked but can be looked up via google if you type in what I did to contact these people. I linked those I knew legitimate links for and have worked with often and can easily recommend. I just listed others I know can do what you need but am not sure how to link. Them if you find yourself on this list, just contact me to let me know how to link you. I will not put email addresses up here, just legitimate links to an Etsy or other Doll or Craft site store etc. Anyone wishing to show/share what they make for my dolls can join my Yahoo Group and share there and then put up a photo album in which you can list your contact info. under the description. I'm thrilled that so many talented craftsman, artists, dolly designers etc. have joined my efforts in making wonderful things for my dolls! Thank you all! Cottage Industry is the American way and one way we can all help each other along and something I very strongly believe in & support!
If you are sewing for (new girl's name), the #30 Play Day (http://www.gracefaerie.com/patterns/pattern30.html) and #37 Simply Summer (http://www.gracefaerie.com/patterns/pattern37.html) patterns fit many MSD girls with very little alteration, so these patterns will help launch your sewing adventures.
Patterns for Ellowyne/Vinyl Goodreau can also be adapted to fit (new girl's name). You will need to make some slight adjustments through the shoulders and bust line, so please make a test-run before cutting your good fabric. A list of gracefaerie patterns for Ellowyne/Vinyl Goodreau is posted below.

BJD Face Up Artist Links
Nude dolls shown below. Please do NOT scroll down if you will find this offensive. I do not mean to offend. These BASIC BJD’s are high quality and BJD Hobby Collectors and BJD Artist’s who buy my Basics would like to see the dolls nude. This is a reasonble request for those who want to take just my sculpt and complete their own original doll. For those who might be offended. Please just do NOT scroll past this point.
True Basic BJD’s
Bree Sculpt by Bo Bergemann is first and also shows off the engineering and balance and posing of my body sculpt. All the bodies are these same
Left to right Shimmer, Brown Sugar then Pink Sugar
Next up is Sophia by Bo Bergemann left to right Pink Sugar, Brown Sugar then Shimmer.
Finally below is Bella by Bo Bergemann in Pink Sugar, Brown Sugar then Shimmer.
Here are some photos of each resin tone alone for your reference. Pink Sugar is first below.
Next is Brown Sugar.
Finally Shimmer is below:
Below, left to right, are my Shimmer then Pink Sugar side by side
Below is my Pink Sugar then Shimmer left to right
Below my Shimmer resin is in front and my Pink Sugar in back so you can clearly see the two colors next to each other.
As you can see the two colors are similar, but not the same. Even if both were opaque or both were very slightly translucent, then the COLORS would not be exactly the same. My Pink Sugar is very slightly translucent, but is also a very fair skin tone based on my own. My Shimmer is completely opaque but it is also a medium fair pinky beige skin tone. These photos are true to the colors in person on my monitor. I hope they are on yours as well. I guess I should mention that I have perfect color sight. When the eye doctor tests for color blindness I am a very rare individual who comes out with a score of 100% perfect color sight score. And according to my eye doctor this is very rare. So, the first time, she did the test twice. In 30 years of doing various color sight testing, and nowadays with a big fancy machine - I am the ONLY person she has ever met to score perfect no matter how many times she gives me the test over the years and even now with her fancy machine. I am grateful and guess God knew He planned for me to be an artist. Maybe this is why I love color so much. Because I can see clearly all of God’s colors clearly at least so far as man’s testing can determine.
