Much attention is paid nowadays to the negative effects of made-up, scantily-clad dolls on young girls, and Tree Change Dolls is making a little difference. This Tasmanian artist adopts notoriously over-made-up and underdressed Bratz dolls from thrift shops, strips away their questionable makeup, repaints their faces, gives them a haircut, and puts them in hand-sewn or knitted outfits made by her mother. The dolls look modest and simple, and are supposed to be able to play outside like real children, rather than living the glamorous lives imagined for them by their original manufacturers. The artist grew up playing with second hand dolls outdoors, and hopes to open an Etsy store soon to share this experience with others, too. What do you think?
