Christine of Forty Winks Doll Studio makes some of my favourite custom Blythes. I would always look at them longingly, with their pudgy cheeks (how did she do that?!), soft, plump lips and funny expressions. I was always torn between the little grumpy faced ones and the happy smiley ones. When Quinn showed up on Dolly Adoption, I just couldn’t resist.
Falling in Love Again – Aurelia
I have waves of love for my girls. Sometimes I am bemused and stare at them on my shelf thinking I might have a little-person problem, and I really should downsize! And then other days, I am frantically enabling myself through blogs and flickr. It’s a terrible curse.
The worst though? Is when you take the girls out and you realise how amazing they are. This has happened to be for two girls recently, and what is special about them is that they are both customs. I’ll introduce the first one to you today, my Pullip Aurelia.

The Grails and the Travelling Girls
Doll collection is such a dangerous hobby. Flickr is place where your wallet can go to die as beautiful pictures of these dollies produce lemmings like no other. I make lists and lists and wait […]
Alice is Romantic, a Review.
Romantic Alice was a Pullip release in 2011. Popular in her heyday, she disappeared off shelves for a long time, selling out, and being offered for large sums of money on the second hand market. And then one day, Groove re-released her, and I could not preorder her fast enough.
Working on a new Blondie
So, after receiving Agnes and deciding I could never touch her, as I loved her too much, I ordered some fakies to practice customising on. Whereas Pullip releases kits for you to customise, for Blythe, […]
New outfits from Nénelle et Lalluli
One of the reasons I love dolls so much is that I spent an inordinate amount of time stalking Rinoninha’s flickr. She would make the most beautiful outfits for her dolls, and I was over […]
