Say hello to skateboard doll Carla, my second Berliner girl (“Berliner Gör”). Carla (20″/800g) looks very innocent and has a finely curved mouth, but she is a confident skater girl with hoodie and casual hat. With her skateboard, built especially for her by my husband, she is around in Berlin-Mitte and the Southern Wedding. She likes to mix with the young skaters at Pappelplatz at Invalidenstraße.
Carla has a slender body and is extra heavy: she measures around 20″ and weighs 800 grams. She wears a cool hoodie made of soft sweat fabric with stars, plus a cashmere and wool knit leggings and a cap made of 100% wool white cashmere knit. Also ankle-high sneakers made of wool felt.
But see for yourself. The photos on the skateboard were made by holding Carla on three (almost invisible) threads, like a puppet.
If you want to purchase Carla, send me an e-mail, or have a look at Carla’s Etsy shop listing (430 Euros, shipping included).
I wish everybody a happy advent season!
