Beauty in Action!
The Exciting Artwork of NANCY GARVEN

As an open-minded web site BildLilli.com looks at fashion dolls in a different way than many other collector sites. The intention is to broaden the horizon of the visitor and offer topics for discussion. In past articles you followed the transitions of Barbie dolls back into the era of the Original Bild Lilli. The results are gorgeous, sensual, provocative and in parts highly dominating OOAK pieces of Art.

But the transition does not have to start with the fashion doll; it can have a completely different beginning: the Female Action Figure. Whether a famous Fantasy/Sci-Fi character or a “Real” military heroine the very flexible body offers the potential to become a masterfully designed piece of Intriguing and Erotic Art that in many cases – simply “blows away” a transformed fashion doll.

Today I would like to introduce you to some of these transformations so stunning they will take your breath away. They might even change your attitude towards action figures the same way they changed mine almost immediately. The artist of the creations you see on this page is NANCY GARVEN. The pictures presented here are samples of her art work. More detailed images of her art can be found on her web site LOST WORLD PRODUCTIONS.

The first image shows AGATHA (SILENT FILM STAR). The pose says it all! Detailed dress, flapper style gives her the Diva look of 1920's Hollywood glamor. A gorgeous example of the possibilities the figures provide for the experienced artist. You can click on the name of each item for further details and more information.

From fashion to strength! The next image depicts a NORSE GODDESS. The selections of clothing items combined with the body presentation create a stunning example of Nancy's art. This is my favorite piece called DESTROYER 4 – THE NORTH LANDS. Another excursion into the fantasy world can be seen in the next photo: DESTROYER 6 – MONGUL. Added make-up and touch-ups provide an incredible realism to face and body and the use of accessories is simply brilliant.

FRANCOISE (UNDERCOVER AGENT) as part of Nancy's Warriors and Spies series is shown on the next picture. Interesting here is the choice of wig and dress from the American Girl Doll with nicely added lace, knitted accents and stylish jewelry. What a beauty!

The last picture shows SAM IN FASHION DOLL POSE, dressed in black with leather pants and fingerless gloves. Sam is another very realistic example, quite sexy through the semi-open pants, of a strong woman looking directly in the camera.

These are just a few examples of NANCY GARVEN's work. For more information, comments and images visit the LOST WORLD PRODUCTIONS Web Site with lots of things to get lost in.
