INTERVIEW

TOY0+We noticed that 2 coming vinyl Toy White Lady & Ribbon Lady related to your solo exhitbition "The Fairy Twins", can you tell us more about these 2 characters?
我們知道即將2款搪膠公仔,是取材於你去年的個人畫展"童話雙胞胎",可否介紹她們的由來?

Miloza MaThis might refer to the fairy tale stories, you really want to know? And actually I'm the one who believes in fairy tale stories. These 2 character were created in 2015 which I had collaboration with Open Price to publish a Zine. This Zine's title is based on "Alice in Wonderland", since then I started to fell in love with the fairy tale girls.
要說她們的由來可能要從童話故事說起,你真的想聽嗎?而我就是一個相信童畫的大小孩。如果硬說她們的由來應該是從2015年與Open Quote 合作的一本Zine開始。這本Zine的創刊題目正是"愛麗絲夢遊仙境",從此我就愛上畫童話女孩!!

TOY0+Do you collect any toys? What kind of toys do you like?
你收集任何玩具嗎?喜歡什麼樣的玩具?

Miloza MaI often collect some unique toys, like designer brand toys, I think their toys given me inspiration, and I also can feel their souls from the designer toys.
我較常收集一些獨特的玩具,如設計師品牌玩具,他們的設計給了我靈感,而收藏後感覺得到了他們的靈魂!

TOY0+What do you think about the toy culture? How would you think that a designer toy means to you?
你對玩具文化有什麼看法?你認為設計師玩具/搪膠公仔對你來說意味著什麼?

Miloza MaAs a designer point of view, I specially love unique and artistic toys, even with an interesting expression will cause public curiosity! And designer toys are always fresh to us with cultural interaction!
如以設計師身分去看玩具文化,我當然較喜愛玩具的設計帶點藝術味,強烈的獨特風,甚至是玩味重的表達,這會引起大眾的好奇心!而令設計師玩具可存在於新鮮感,自由化的體系當中,發放光芒!

TOY0+Last year you had introduced a Limited Edition of "Ribbon Lady" statue at TTF, what is the differences of using polystone & soft vinyl to apply to your character?
去年你於「台北國際玩具創作大展」推岀了一款Ribbon Lady的雕塑擺設,與搪膠比較,你覺得不同物料應用在你的角色產品上有什麼分別?

Miloza MaI love both version! For the polystone version from last year, as using resin as the material plus hand painting application, it is a precious collectible. While the soft vinyl toys can attract more toy lovers because of its lightweight, which is portable for outdoor shooting!
兩種物料各自佔據了不同人的心!例如上年推出,以樹脂公仔作重心物料,表面配合人手上色,以繪畫塗裝方式為整體設計,給人感覺是珍貴,用以收藏作擺設的。而搪膠玩具則可以吸納多些愛玩玩具的朋友仔!因物料本身輕巧,方便攜帶,可帶著玩具四處遊玩及外拍!

TOY0+What is your impression of bringing "White & Ribbon Lady" into a vinyl collectible toy with TOY0+.
請告訴我們更多關於將「Ribbon Lady & White Lady」帶入TOY0+的設計師玩具的想法/印象。

Miloza MaThere are lots of ideas during the collaborative with TOY0+, and also think of bringing different characters into toys. imagined design a variety of girls! I really love these 2 fairy tale stories, and wanna use my own style to present it, based on the ladies and the story behind. If you guys are really love these 2 characters, I'm hoping to draw more illustration about them!
說真,想法多的是。。。在與Toyzeroplus傾合作的初期已想像設計多款女孩!而頭炮選這兩個童話,是因為我太愛這兩個童話了!很想用自己風格去表達這些童話,當然我只是二創一點點,而重心思想是想畫些小淑女,重新定義一個故事去表達她們!如果你們喜歡,期待將來會畫多點插畫,自然對她們有多點印象吧!

TOY0+And after this collaboration with TOYZEROPLUS, would you like to bring other created characters into soft vinyl toy collection? And why?
經過這次合作,你會否繼續想將其他創作角色製作成搪膠公仔?為什麼?

Miloza MaThis is a good start, I never think of producing my own products, while I just told my ideas out, and TOY0+ just make it happen! I wasn't confident of release my own products, but through this collaboration with TOY0+, I will try to think of more different possibilities and characters!
這次合作真是一個極大的嘗試,從來推出產品我是如此的保守。而在洽談設計時,TOY0+成了一個強心針,我只是將想法說出來,他就二話不說就做!如以我個人經驗,我總是慢慢的看看情況,慢慢的像小蝸般,看不見前路就停下來,哈!不過經過今次合作,我學懂了就是放縱去嘗試,要是將來有更多的玩具造型想法,我一定會繼續推出,直到永遠!
