Outlander … in the doll world.

Last spring a friend commissioned me to create Claire in the Outlander “red dress” … challenge accepted, bodice, back lacing, shoes and all.

Of course, new season, new Dior fashion … thanks, Claire!


Now, it’s on to preparations for Barbie Doll’s big 60!!! XO


2018 NBDCC ~ OOAK Live Auction Donation

Convention is over and I’m starting to catch up on rest so posting my final contribution … after going to Venice in May, I was inspired by Atelier Antonia Sautter, an Italian designer of period costumes.  Window shopping all the wonderful designers from Chanel to Prada in Venice, we came across a fabulous display of her work which changed my thought process for my live auction doll.  Here are a few photos of the final result, with proceeds going to UMOM of Phoenix, AZ.




Coming soon to the raffle room of 2018 NBDCC ~ On the Avenue  … “Pearls and Roses”, OOAK Silkstone Barbie by Judy O’Connell / Aponi Designs

2018 IDC Donation …

I’m pleased to share my version of “Sailor Moon Serenity Princess”! She is now on eBay, 100% for the benefit of Dynamo Camp. 


This OOAK Silkstone Barbie Doll has had a complete facial repaint with professional quality Golden acrylics, mani/pedi and restyled hair.

Her removable gown is cut from shimmering organza and swirling lace. It has been hand-beaded with approximately 2000 Swarovski crystals and as many micro sequins.  The gown has an underskirt of micro-pleated chiffon as well as the signature bow of the same.

She comes with her OOAK wand, crescent moon display stand (glows in the dark) and Certificate of Authenticity.

Are you planning to attend 2018 NBDCC?

It’s only 94 days until I plan to arrive in Phoenix!  If you’re attending, I hope you are planning to attend Collective Couture’s annual event on Tuesday evening, July 10, 2018.

Please meet “Baby” and “Buttons”, my whimsical pipe cleaner poodles who will be helping me celebrate Aponi Designs 10th Anniversary! 😎
