The term Dollmaker is loosely translated to any Dollmaker, but then also Shuni dolls you draw yourself. So if you like drawing your own thing find a Shuni base and head and then edit it to your hearts content.
Animation is fine as long as its not extensive. Just note that it typically doesn't affect score. Usually what wins a contest is how well the theme is displayed, creativity, and effort.
Edit: also backgrounds, text, props, and frames are always optional, but certainly encouraged.
