If I were to collect dolls, the highly stylized, long-legged, soft vinyl, 12″ tall, articulated figures designed by Australian comic book artist Ashley Wood and sculpted by Siu Yin would be the ones. The Manga-influenced collectibles made by ThreeA are designed for adults and are more sculpture than they are play toys.
In 2008, Ashley Wood and ThreeZero’s founder Kim created threeA, a Hong Kong based production house for designing, developing and manufacturing toys, posters, prints and clothing based on characters created by Ashley Wood. Of the many fabulous toys available from ThreeA (3A), The World of Isobelle Pascha collection are my personal favorite.
Isobelle Pascha Cosplay Dolls
Many, actually most, of the dolls released previously are risqué and sexually provocative, but in this latest collection the dolls represent Cosplay (Costume Play, a popular form of performance art where people dress up as their favorite comic and animated characters) and are as fashionable as they are fabulous.
