Magic !

I am sorry that I do not know who the photographer is.
I find the image to be delightful and Divine.

This is Not a Cow

Couldn't Have Said It Better

I will guide you all the way
You have the right to remain silent
You get that smile
And you say nothing at all
Just love me like you love nobody else
Don't say a word
Silence is golden

Paul Roustan

Unsafe for work body painting.

Micael Reynaud

Please allow a moment for the page to load.
You will not be disappointed.
Travelling with Micael Reynaud is Simply Divine.

Find the photographs of Micael Reynaud here.

Made in America

Things Simply Divine are made in America. Unless something comes from a fellow international doll artist, everything comes from 'here'.

Each Mask is Custom Poured

We thank you for your patience.
If you have any special requests, we would like to hear them.

Alice Mask Update

This is a photograph of one of the fuzzy white Rabbits. 
There may be a Soom Io Scarface hiding under there; I am not quite sure.
  These Rabbit masks are still available in white, black, brown, or sable.  All of them are fuzzy. 
 Each Rabbit mask is $105 plus shipping.  Insurance is required.
  Shipping and insurance is approximately ten dollars total within the continental United States.

The long awaited 'Alice in Wonderland blind box set of three' masks is coming along well. 
 However, the Alice set is the first thing which we stop work on the instant that anything else needs attention. 
 The Christmas mask is required  for exhibition right after November 25th;  the 'Alice' masks are competing for time with this large mask.

None of the Alice masks are small.  Also, none of the Alice masks are 'Alice'. 
 We have figured that any old anybody can be Alice any day of the week. 
 The masks will, therefore, feature the more exciting Wonderland characters.

Estimated shipping time for the 'Alice set of three' is mid-January. 
  No invoices will be sent until the masks are ready to ship.

Thank you for your deep interesting.

Gotye's Bronte

Ready for another guess at what the Christmas mask is going to be?

The One That Got Away

We are coming out with more heads for Divine. Each is more gorgeous than the last, with His head being "the best".

 Don't ever let there be a 'one that got away'.

This photograph depicts the speed of the 'New York minute' that Simply Divine runs at.  This is New York Times Square.


Today, if you asked me to draw a picture of my horse, this would be it:

It looks exactly like Divine, don't you think?


If we were do do an undead bird mask, what would it be?

If anyone has any better undead bird thoughts, they should speak them now.

Of course, Rouge has spent so much time in the sunshine state of Florida that he would probably vote for a 'pink flamingo'.  But, he is not home yet, so I cannot ask him.  

We are looking forward to jointed bird hands, changing the cupcake on the hooves to feathers, turning the hoof to talons, and making West Nile Charlotte available as a head.  All in Soom Super Gem size.  

We are also working on re-engineering the knee joint on the hooves so that the calf portion is available in Dollshe Hound size as well as Soom Super Gem size.  This means you will be able to choose 'hooves or talons' 'hairy or feathered cupcake' and calf for 'Dollshe or Super Gem'.

To anyone who has hazarded the guess that we might be making the Wolf for Christmas, the answer is:  no, no Wolf for Christmas.  Little Red Riding Hood did have a great deal of snow in the movie.  But,  think: " "traditional Christmas animal".

That is your answer.

Rolling in the Deep

Don't underestimate the things that I will do
There's a fire starting in my heart
Reaching a fever pitch and it's bring me out the dark

A Simply Divine Christmas is coming. Are you ready?

Thank you for loving Divine's hooves.  Unless we are holding your order awaiting a change of address, your hooves are on their way.  Hoof  have been sent out and you should have received your tracking number directly from the U.S. postal service.

Rabbit Colors

Rabbit masks are Soom Super Gem / Dollshe Hound in size.
The colors available are :  White, Brown, Black, and Sable 
The 'Alice blind box set' is being worked on right now.  Yes, we do think that it will be released before Christmas.  

Jingle Bell Rock

First, as of right this moment, there is still 'no internet' at the factory.  All accounting, billing, and postal activities are computerized and are out of service.  They remain hopeful for shipping on Monday to those who have outgoing orders waiting.

Lack of internet is not delaying our plans for a 'Christmas mask'.  Divine is still on track to be on exhibit for the month of December.  What he will be, I am still keeping as a 'surprise' to the community.  If you are interested in knowing what the 'Christmas mask' is, I will be happy to whisper it to you.  You may then plan your holiday shopping accordingly.  It will be a rather large mask and yes, I do already have the list going for 'first shipments'.

Everyone who already knows what Divine will be for the holidays is already happily singing this song in gleeful anticipation.

The LiveJournal is here for chat.  If you leave a note in any reasonably current entry, I will pass by and see it.

Halloween Blizzard Delays Divine Shipments

Thankfully, we am fine here on the island.  However, three hours north of us, the plastics factory looks like this:

This was one of the last photographs sent, with the note "the snow is expected to fall for six more hours!"

Today, I received the message "I am at the library for the internet.  Schools are closed.  There is no electric and there is no phone.  Service is not expected to return until this weekend.."

I have no idea whether or not dog sleds have been engaged to take Simply Divine everything off to the post office.  My guess is, we will all just have to wait for our shipments.  If Asians are permitted monsoon breaks, then New Yorkers need be allowed time to recover from bizarre Fall season snow blizzards.

I thank you for your patience and your indulgence.  If anyone who is moving requires a 'change of address' due to the shipping delay, please let me know.

November 2nd, 2011

Edited to add:   One of us sent me this video, so I am sharing it with you.

Today's update is:  I have heard from the factory by cell phone.  The internet and phone lines are still down.  The internet is required for all billing and shipping.  This means: shipments are still being 'delayed'.  The telephone company has estimated 'Friday, November 4th' for the restoration of service.
