I am very excited to share with you today an exclusive interview with a very special fashionista: Summer, the Plasterdoll! She is cute and adorable, with a larger than normal head, and has fabulous dress sense (she is a fashion model in the doll world, after all!).
I met up with Summer over coffee, and we chat a little about her favourite things, what's it like to be doll in the fashion world, her thoughts on trends and styles, her blogging; she even offered me a peek into her bag! She is really fun and easy to talk to, and so "human" - if you get what I mean!! And I am very happy to have the opportunity to feature her here.
Read on, and I'm sure you'd find reasons to love Plasterdoll too!
+ Tell us something about yourself...
My name is Summer and I’m a Plasterdoll. In case you don’t already know about Plasterdoll, we are dolls with larger-than-normal head, with a plaster or bandaid on our forehead all the time, because that’s just how clumsy we are, with our big head!
I’m a fashion model in the Plasterdoll world, and have done quite a number of “fashion shoots” (I think some humans call it “fashion illustrations”) for well-know designers.
When I’m not working, I like to blog. My blog is where I share with people pictures from my fashion shoots, as well as my personal style, and some occasional “fashion projects” like my recent “Style Blogger series” where I did a “look-alike” of some popular fashion bloggers. My blog is like an avenue for me to reach out to human out there! :)
+ What's the best part about being a fashion model in the Plasterdoll world?
The best part is definitely being able to see myself in styles that I may not have tried otherwise, and to let others create different looks on me.
+ You’ve done quite a number of fashion shoots. Do you have a favourite?
My favourite one has got to be one of my recent “Style Blogger series” where I was styled and photographed as two of my favourite bloggers, The Cherry Blossom Girl and Miss Pandora. I love this because I managed to pull off two different looks to resemble the gorgeous ladies.
+ What does fashion means to you, and how would you define your style?
I like to see fashion as a way to express myself in terms of my personality, and to some extent my moods. My style is both Classic and Summery - just like my name!!
+ What's the newest addition to your wardrobe this season?
Lanvin for H&M’s red chandelier necklace! I love it because it looks good with almost anything, and I can dress up and down with it.
+ What do you wear on your day offs?
I like to look casual on my day offs, but that doesn’t mean I spend less time styling myself!
I like pairing a pair of tailored shorts with fancy tops or blouses with statement accessories, and I do the same if I feel like stepping out in my skinny jeans. If I'm in summer dresses I would usually pair them with comfortable sandals. A fashionista can never be seen sloppy!
+ Do you have a favourite scent?
Oh yes! E'Clat D'Arpege by Lanvin for everyday and anytime, and Sheer Stella by Stella McCartney for night.
+ Who's playing on your iPod?
Right now, it’s Katy Perry’s "Teenage Dream".
+ On a warm summer day, you'll find me...
Sipping watermelon juice sunbathing by the pool.
+ A peek into your handbag...
iPhone, Moleskin, Wallet, Lipstick, Lipbalm, Hair Brush, Sunnies, Foundation, and Plasters (!!!) - of course!
It was a fantastic experience to have met up with Summer, and I hope you've enjoyed the little interview too! For more Plasterdoll, hop over to her blog. Her fashion-shoot prints are also available for sale over at her Etsy shop.
