*Conspiracy Theorist and The Humble Origins of Morezmore

Conspiracy Theorist was Morezmore FIRST doll, made in 2006.

The population of Conspiracy Theorists species is widespread around the world.
You might have seen them in your own community, possibly among your friends, family members and coworkers.
Conspiracy Theorist was made out of Prosculpt polymer clay, painted with oil paints, dressed with with natural leather and jewelry pieces.

Conspiracy Theorist was the founding father of Morezmore.

In 2006 I saw a small OOAK doll listing on ebay and was impressed by the bid amount.
At that time I was going through my divorce and was rather broke.
So I said to myself: “Methinks, you can make something like this and maybe somebody will like it enough to buy it.”

Little did I know that it would take a lot of tools and materials and time and learning. This little hobby is not cheap.
But I did complete this first ugly thing and even sold him on ebay auction for $45 dollars, with a starting bid of $0.99.
I remember the amount surprised me and I was very proud that people wanted to buy him.
But what surprised me even more was HOW MUCH I ENJOYED making him.
In other words, I was bitten by the OOAK bug.

By the way, Morezmore idea came to me when I realized that I can buy everything I need for my next doll online, but in different stores, sometimes in different countries. Each little piece of wire, clay or button came with its own shipping charge.
At that time I did not find any online stores which catered specifically to OOAK doll artists, where you could buy all you needed to start – in one place, with one shipping charge. So I decided to create such store and Morezmore was born.
