The Uniquely Yours Bespoke Portrait Dolls are a personalised & sentimental keepsake doll designed to look just like you.

Incorporating your unique features of hair, eye & skin colour, your "mini me" portrait doll will be dressed in your favorite or most sentimental outfit of your special occasion or celebration in miniature form.

Authentic recreation is an important element for these dolls, so I invite you to send to me items of clothing or fabric you wish for me to use for this creation. If this isn’t possible, I can source similar fabrics to complete the look and to ensure the perfect finish. 

Once your order has been received, I will be in touch to discuss further elements of your design. Please ensure you upload clear photos as requested to ensure all details are captured as authentically as possible.

*Some elements of the desired clothing may not convert well into these small dolls. Slight changes to the design may be required at the artists discretion.

Please note this service is for a Uniquely Yours PORTRAIT DOLL personalised keepsake and does not include miniature bridal, replications of celebrities, movie characters or book characters, etc.
