Art Toy of the Week – Bella Delamere

I have been collecting designer toys since 2004 and this is my weekly column.  I also have other interests (I am for example the Curator of the Breyer Horses and Warne’s Observer’s Pocket Books and generally am known to add anything cute to my collection).


This week’s Art Toy of the Week is Bella Delamere by Doktor A and produced by Arts Unknown. True to DokA’s steampunk style, 8″ Bella is a curious figure who appears to be a lady from first glance, but when you look closer you spot the key in her back ready for winding, the knife in her hand behind her back and the tentacles creeping out from under her dress. Released in several colourways, she is a fun figure to have in your collection!

Bella Delamere “The Dinner Party” edition

Her back story is as follows:

Discarded with the sump oil at a very early age, Bella was swept downstream until she found herself by the sea. She soon made friends with all forms of aquatic creatures and was taken in and raised by a family of Kraken (the smaller lesser spotted variety). Upon reaching adulthood she returned to the surface and emerged into society, remodelled after her adoptive kin folk. The tentacles do not raise many comments around town. But her insistence on always waring a mask certainly does. Much speculation is whispered about her true identity. And one day she will reveal her secret to the father who left her for dead…
