Bridgette Bad was born in Odessa, Ukraine and moved to New York City with her family at the age of 12. She spent her childhood making clothes for various dolls, which later progressed to drawing of human form and fashion. Her focus was always shifted towards art and fantasy.
In 2009, she created the doll Margarita, after the actress Anna Kovalchuk who played the role of Margarita in Vladimir Bortko’s film The Master and Margarita. Bad’s Margarita is 9" tall and is made out of polymer clay. Her eyes are handmade separately with acrylics and polished sealer for a glass-like realistic effect. Her broom is handmade as well and is glued to the doll. She comes with a wooden mirror stand and has a golden chain attached to the top of her head for hanging. Her hair has been styled and cannot be re-brushed.
Bridgette Bad often shows the the process of the creation of her dolls in The Making Of video’s.
