Mimi Kirchner

Have you already met fiber artist, Mimi Kirchner? I've developed a serious crush on her tattooed-mustachioed men dolls. She ingeniously uses Toile fabric for their tattooed body parts! I love the period look she's created by dressing them in Victorian era bathing suits and performance pants. But these are only her latest creations- follow the progression of Mimi's work through her Flickr albums-InCreDibLe!! Etsy Shop. Blog. xo
