What about the magical creatures that are just over the bridge in Bridge to Terabithia?
Of course, we can't forget the always spectacular Lord of The Rings Trilogy. Firstly - my personal favourite the Ents.
(Liv Tyler's gorgeous headpiece is absolutely glorious....)
Not to mention Gandalf with his wizard's staff and amazing hat, Aragon, the Riders of Rohan, - even the baddies- Gollum, the Orcs, the Witch King - all provide enormous inspiration to the doll artist.
But perhaps your 'thing' is realism and historical dress? Well of course if you love the Elizabethan period there is Cate Blanchett in Elizabeth and Elizabeth the Golden Age....
Maybe Chicago inspires you to make a doll from the Jazz age?
Or my personal favourite by Francis Ford Coppola - The Cotton Club?
