Inspiring Artist - P Brigitte Coovert

Ecila Glamor - Zombuki Pullip Photo Print For Sale on Etsy

In hunting down one of my new christmas presents (a new Pullip doll from Valley of the Dolls), my hub and I made a discovery - a new artist and what will be for many- a new medium- introducing ZOMBUKI's!


Artist Brigitte Coovert customizes Pullip, Dae and Blythe dolls to become what she playfully calls Zombuki's:
Zombuki, a combination of the words “zombie” and “kabuki,” was a term dreamed up with the help of a friend some time ago. Zombukis are meant to be a hybrid of many styles and cultures (the zombie itself being both alive and dead), able to embody many looks, to be chimeras of the doll world.

- P Brigitte Coovert

As soon as I discovered there was a book entitled Zombuki's Love You - I bought it! Especially since the dolls themselves, being original artist pieces and an investment, can be expensive.

Zombukis Love You -Hardcover Book

I was also thrilled to see that Ms. Coovert has a phenomenal Zombuki gallery page with stunning photography that MUST BE Seen by all so please click on GALLERY! If You Purchase a Zombuki through the Valley of the Doll site - Generally, a Zombuki will come with coordinated clothing and a plush/felt companion. She also has a beautiful Flickr Page in which she features Desktop Wallpaper Images FOR PERSONAL USE only - which I think is quite generous!!

I really love her photography too! She is an amazing artist in so many media. I didn't know that there was a book out of these. Thanks for the write up.
