the mysterious Doctor Vandelay....




i found a stash of these images in a yahoo group but had spotted some of them before on ebay. apparently Doctor Vandelay makes and sells them there. they're certianly some of the best doll like masks i've seen so far.

i've tried tracking him down but to no luck and i can't figure out what his ebay id is either.

does anyone know more? Doctor Vandelay are you out there?

Those look so cool! If you find out any information, please let me know :)

Well... Vandelay may be reference to a photoshop artist. The third pic in that tryptich with the domme barbie pointing at her maid-slave? I have photos from that original photoset, wherein she wore no barbie mask. (I remember her. She has weird boobs.)

In any case.. I'd be quite interested in one of these as well.

Ok, but even if some of the pics are photo-manipulations, it isn't impossible to make a molded mask such as this...

The difficulty lies with making it so the wearer can function while wearing it (see, breathe, etc.).

Still...there is something to be said for the idea of hiding a person's real face for so long that the mask is what is remembered as the true face.... ;)

I love his masks and have always wanted one! I've emailed him in the past but never got a response :( I tried once more after seeing this post so I hope to hear something form him. I'd love to have a "not bettie" mask - so cute!!

Hi its me Leann again, glad to see you got a response from him, he's a plesent fellow i must say

My advice, get the not barbie one 1st, if you really like it then go more extreme and get not birtney, the full head and neck one ... she is very tight and her mouth inside the mask is shaped almost like a gag, depending on your face shape, afte that get what you like, his work is brilliant ... unless there are some new ones out that i havent seen yet :P

Asudem Latex said...

so is the top one the not barbie?

still no word but he's send some more photo's with his last reply.

Hi leann here, yes the top photo on your blog is the not barbie ... shes the best for the doll look

But the full birtney is good for laughs too if your wanna go more manaquinn model look, and the bettie is jus so darn cute ^_^
