Stunt Doubles from a Parallel Universe

Okay, here’s some Thursday morning madness and lunacy for you.

Photographer Achim Lippoth has brought out a series called:
Kids and their Dolls – like twins from a parallel universe.

In his doll series, Achim shows how children merge with their dolls. He was inspired by dogs and their owners, who tend to grow similar over time and adopt specific traits from one another. (I got that off his website)

Please click on the pics if you want to see them bigger.

How gorgeous?

But yet somehow tinged with a bit of madness and with some creepiness thrown in for good measure.



What if these dolls come alive in the middle of the night, and then take over your life, and your bank account, like Single White Female, and nobody believes you’re the actual you, because your identical dollie takes over your life?

What? It could happen!

As always the genius is in the details.

Do you think Achim has issues? Peter Pan Syndrome perhaps? or Mommy Issues? Or maybe he’s just a grown up boy who likes to play with dolls. No harm in that.

The necklace on that one is my favourite.


And the crazy hair on that one. Love love love.
Thank you Achim, too wonderful. Plus, I’m especially grateful to you for these wonderful pics, because I’ve always wanted to write a blog post called ‘Stunt Doubles from a Parallel Universe’. Tick!

    If you even grew up in the vicinity of the eighties you know what a Cabbage Patch doll is. mine’s name was Peregrine Kingston. What’s funny is my boss did an invite for a friend’s 40th today. She made up a collage of eighties shit , which included a pic of said doll. 😉
