I was honestly having the worst day today. Splitting headache, students everywhere going insane and then the fire alarm went off and we had to evacuate! Truly grumpy, the day was going downhill until I got a message from the wonderful Freddy Tan… “How are you doing dear?”
So….Scurvygrrrl had warned me that Mandarake was the spawn of the devil, and I didn’t even realise until I saw how unspeakably easy it was to order from them… and how much cheaper it is compared the US because of the Australian Exchange rate!
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.
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.
I’ve introduced you before to my clone Blythe girl with fabulous blond hair. I haven’t had time to do much doll stuff recently as I’ve been organising my wedding (16th of May!). I finally found […]
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, […]
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 […]
I haven’t had a chance to draw in a long time – I’ve had this idea for a customized Blythe in my head for the last couple of months and I thought I would do […]
After practicing customising a bit, I decided to buy a cheaper Blythe to play with. I still can’t justify messing up a really pretty doll yet. Lorshek Molseh was on sale (her name is an anagram of the beloved Sherlock Holmes) on CCT, and I picked her up thinking her little moustache was comical and her outfit was a bit knaff but cute all the same.
