Not Ready Yet

Divine's hooves are coming along marvelously well.  They are not ready yet, but we think you will be very pleased when you do get to see them.

Leave the sound on.  The music is usually pretty good.

Love Phantom


"Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again.  It seemed to me I stood by the iron gate leading to the drive and for a while I could not enter, for the way was barred to me."

Make Love

Don't miss the hair.

Hot Patootie

This doesn't give away too much, now does it ?

Whatever happened to saturday night
When you dressed up sharp and you felt alright
It don´t seem the same since the cosmic light
Came into my life and I thought I was Divine


So, have you been looking at the feet?

Divine's Hooves

Divine's hooves are coming along quite nicely.  
 We are trying and trying to get 'the great reveal' done for you for Halloween.  

Divine's head, His hooves, part of His outfit, and a special mask would all be available.
I do have tentative lists going for each of those items and body parts.  Therefore, if you are interested in getting first crack at 'the pour' then please let me know.

We have not forgotten about the 'Alice masks' ; we are still working on them.

I've climbed so high
The light, sometimes it washes over me.

Washes over me
I close my eyes
So I can see
Make my make believe, believe in me.

Waiting for an Invoice

Whether you have requested masks, Charlotte, or a Harlequin head please be patient.  We accept "wishes" and we accept "requests" and we thrive on compliments.  However, we do not allow 'pre-ordering' and we do not engage in the practice of 'pre-billing'.

Each order is custom made; just for you.

You will not receive an invoice until your name and address are on a sealed package ready to leave the factory.
Also, if you have requested something and have requested that I poke you "when we are making it again", well I do not poke.  The way to acquire something Simply Divine is: have your piggy bank full, then request that an item be produced, then wait for the invoice to pay for the item. 

 The point is: I will not chase you down trying to sell you something.

The work is outgoing from several "final lists". 
We consistently ship to
 the first person who has requested the item and who is able to pay for it.

If you have said that you are "ready to pay and waiting for an invoice", then you are on one of our final lists.  We do not send emails with 'status updates'.  Production time varies.  Your invoice will appear, you pay within 48 hours, your order ships within 48 hours of payment, your tracking number is provided to you automatically by the post office.

Thank you for your deep interesting.

Resin Comparison

The following photos are of Harlequin in Venetian Luna Rose, Harlequin in Venetian Luna Sunrise in the middle, and a Volks YoSD in Volks NS UV . Although it is unknown how it will age over time Venetian Luna does have UV added to it.

The first photo is natural daylight.  I think that the headcap and hands are from the same doll and that that doll is a Dollshe.  But, I am not sure.  Enki provided those pieces for the photo.  Perhaps if you know her, you can ask her.

This photo is natural daylight.  It was taken outdoors:  oops! sorry!
This photo was taken indoors in a professional light box :

Color choices for the Harlequin head are:
Venetian Luna White
Venetian Luna Rose
Venetian Luna Sunrise

Please make your selection carefully.  He is not returnable or exchangeable for any reason.
  The price per head is still $150 plus shipping.  Insurance is required.

Venetian Luna White is not shown in these photos.  It is very, very white.

We are currently working on Divine's body.  Next up, will be hooves.  The hooves will be knee down compatible to a Soom Super Gem male body.

The threads on DoA relating to Harlequin are:

The original group order thread.  Which I expect will someday 'disappear' and be 'removed'.

The Harlequin Waiting Room.

The Harlequin database which contains 'finished' pieces.

For anyone who has asked me "What body do you plan to use for your Harlequin?"
The answer is:  I will temporarily rig him up on a Soom Super Gem.  Harlequin head and Divine hooves will go onto a Super Gem body.
Then I will wait.
I will wait for Divine's body to be complete.  Completely complete with wonderful jointy hands.
Then, I will remove the head and the hooves and pop them on a Divine body for "oooh la la!" resin match.

Venetian Luna resin is not like anything else; there is no body that I would prefer to a Simply Divine one in all Venetian Luna.

Insight into other people's recommendations and plans is available on DoA.

Celebrating Divine

"Who are you?"
"Your every desire."

I'm what you want, I'm what you need.

I'll be like your medicine, you'll take every dose of me.

And every time you think about it, you're gonna want some more of me.

Celebrating Divine in every color of Venetian Luna resin. Including Violet Dusk, Bamboo, and some form of charteuse.
I can resist anything but temptation.
                         -Oscar Wilde, Lady Windermere's Fan, 1892, Act I
                           Irish dramatist, novelist, & poet (1854 - 1900)

Harvest Moon

Celebrating the fact that I have pictures of Divine. The next people to see Him will be those who are working on Him; they will see Him when he lands on their doorsteps.

Yes, of course, I love Him. He is absolutely fabulous. He is Simply Divine.

I loved you with all my heart.

But now it's gettin' late
And the moon is climbin' high
I want to celebrate
See it shinin' in your eye.

Because I'm still in love with you
I want to see you dance again
Because I'm still in love with you
On this harvest moon.

We've only seen this about a million times. What's one more?


Divine will not be like this. But, hooves are coming.

To everyone who has purchased Harlequin and especially to those who have taken a moment to jot thank you notes saying how totally thrilled you are with him and how very much you simply love his resin, we would like to say:

Simply Divine Harlequin is "Not" a Limited Edition

The group order for DoA is now closed.  However, the Harlequin head is currently still available.
The initial price is $150 per head plus shipping. Insurance is required.
If you would like one, please send me an email.
cathy    AT   cathycara    DOT  com

There is no intention of 'limiting' him in the future.  What will happen is, we will periodically become just too busy to produce him.  Therefore, once this "initial offering for Harlequin" is closed, you will simply have to wait until enough people request him.  When enough people have requested him in the future, then we will re-open the pour.

We also plan to offer him in different colors.
Yes, maybe even chartreuse.

Weeener's Tutor

Has arrived.

After being schooled by Miro, and seeing what a superb education a brilliant tutor can provide, Weeener's lessons will continue.  Her tutor will take up lessons where Miro left off, providing Odette with a bit of a break. Mending broken hearts is probably an easier task than chasing around Weeener all day long.

After an exhausting trip encompassing the usual thousands of miles, he has arrived safely in fairyland.  He settled down comfortably upon the silk cushions which I had intended for Divine.  He  promptly reached for the Hookah Smoking Caterpillar's Hookah, toked out and fell fast asleep.

His hair is angora goat streaked with violet by Eclipse21.

Human Hair Wigs are Simply Divine

Having just completed my first human hair wig in Soom Super Gem size, I was very curious about the human hair industry. Upon contemplating the wig that I had created, as well as the time and the expnese, I became more curious the more I thought about it.

I can understand where angora goat hair comes from. Probably the goat is standing in a field and probably someone came along with a pair of snippers. But, this wig is human hair. Where is this human? I can understand that the genuine pearls that I have sewn into the wig are grown and cultivated and sorted. I can understand how the Swarovski crystals are cut and polished in Austria. The humans producting the crystals are probably in Austria.

Where is this human who provided me with enough hair for a Super Gem sized bead studded wig? I made the wig, but where is the human who made the hair?

Read about the humans who provide the hair for the wigs here.
Yes, I will sell the wigs.  Just give me a chance to get over the rather daunting sticker price of my 'raw materials' and  bit of a chance to make a couple more.
I am *waving* to the person who helped me to select the hair for Sophie.  ♥  Thank you for all your help.  Yes, I will post pictures of her shortly so that you can see her again.  She is now rigged up with a temporary body.  Also because you would never find it, this is part of the link that I gave you, Sophie's head was orginally this.  This figure is 'Super Gem size' and is the size of Harlequin who you also met.  This is the particular size which we create and sell the parts and accessories for.

Take it to the Limit

You know I've always been a dreamer
(Spent my life running 'round)
And it's so hard to change
(Can't seem to settle down)
But the dreams I've seen lately
Keep on turning out and burning out
And turning out the same

So put me on a highway
And show me a sign
And take it to the limit one more time

That is the goal with Divine to take it to the limit. We know that not only can he be more beautiful than any predecessors, he will be more unsual, he will be able to "do things", and he can set the bar for an entire industry higher. Divine cannot out dance my poodle, he will not be racier than Anavel. However, through magic and creativity and good old hard work, we are betting that we can get him to win by a whole lot more than a nose.

His nose does look really nice, by the way.
