Kavik's Curiosities

Hello! My name is Ville, and I am a Swedish artist and dollcreator.

I create because it keeps me sane, calm and collected. My dolls are cute and quirky. I create them by using fabrics, polymerclay, yarn and lots of love. Some are them can be quite michevious, but I find that adds to their personality. Life is never boring when you have one of these guys around, and I am happy for all the support that I have already gotten.

My dolls are michevious creatures that regulary go on adventures. They take on a life of their own as I create them, and I want to spread them all over the world. I know that there are a lot of people who love these dolls as much as I do, which is why I am opening up a shop to sell them to ensure that they can go all over the world and spread happiness and creative energy.

In order to help me and my dolls achieve this goal, I am starting this fundraiser to start up my company.

I focus a lot on creating dolls that follow three words: creepy, cute and queer. It is very important to me that my dolls represent a lot of different people, because I want everyone to get a chance to recognize themself in one of my creations. I therefor strive to include a lot of lbtq+ characters. A lot of dolls are created after a similar standard with little or no variety, but my creations do not follow any set rule. There is a lot of diversity amongst them, which is something that is quite unique.

Oh, and monsters, insects and moths of course. Who wouldn't like a cute little moth as a pet?

I love these dolls because I can connect with others through them, and I can tell peoples stories through them. I also take them travelling with me, and one of the ambitions I have is to do an art project where I hide them in different locations of the world. But to start I am happy to set up a webshop from which I can sell them.

So what do I need the money for, and how much do I need?

First of all I am saving for something I am calling The Big Three.

1. A printer. I need a good printer to be able to print photos of my dolls, and to print little details that can be used for their clothing, accessiories and such.

2. I need a Silhouette Cameo. This is a machine that is used to cut paper and vinyl. I can use this to print patterns for the dolls clothes, prints for the dolls clothing, and small accessories.

3. I need a serger. This helps when I sew the dolls clothing and bodies.

These three would save me a lot of time, and as we all know time is money. In order to run this business I need a good to cut the time I have to spend on every doll, and this would do just that. This comes up to a cost of around 15 000 - 20 000 Swedish Krona. Even just one of these items would help me immensely.

Finally, every donation counts. For just a few bucks I can buy fabric and polymerclay. For a ten - thirty dollars I can buy clay, resin, silicone to mold which also saves me a lot of time. Every single thing helps.

And a larger sum helps me a lot on the way towards setting the shop up properly, and towards my Big Three.

In short, if you donate to my fundraiser you will donate to change my life and help me fulfill my dream. I finally know what I want to do, to put my creative mark on the map and to keep developing this cute, creepy and queer world that I have set out on and that I already know so many people are found of.

Thank you so much for reading, and I hope you will want to help me fulfill my dreams. If you want to see more of my dolls, you can head over to my instagram kaviks.curiosities

Best wishes,

Ville
