It’s been a busy few weeks at Project Doll House. I’ve had a serious amount of visitors passing through on their way home, a few commissions (that you might have seen on my instagram!) and also the arrival of this new girl – a Minifee Chloe. Although I have a Lati Yellow, this Minifee feels like my introduction to a whole new dolly world.
So sometime last year I started researching the BJDs (Ball-Jointed Dolls). You could say that my interest had already been spiked by the addition of the JerryBerries to my family – and people do say Blythe and Pullip are gateways to the land of BJD.
And they would probably be right. So what did I just do…?
I have had a few regrets in my dolly-collecting journey. One of the major ones, is not picking up the original Pullip Kiyomi when she was available – because, truth be told, she was the one that made me love Pullips. When I missed out on her, I tried to keep filling the void with other releases – so when Groove announced a Kiyomi remake in a new minty colour scheme, I didn’t even think, I just hit order.
My first introduction to dolls really was when my brother bought be a Hatsune Miku Pullip. I found out later that Blythe had a version too… and she was translucent! She became a wishlist doll, but she slowly moved her way down, and sometimes out of the list. However, on a recent trip to Shanghai, I found her in one of the official Blythe stores… for an amazing price. Let’s meet Miku!
About one day before I left for Shanghai, a very special box arrived at my doorstep. Unassuming and brown, inside, the box held a little girl of wonder, rainbows and colour! I’d like for you to meet Bubblegum, my very own G.Baby girl.
I’m finally back from my work trip, so I wanted to introduce to everyone a very special visitor from late last year – Little Red Riding Hood by Nanuka.
It was while writing my 2015 round up that I realised how different my photography of dolls has – I’d like to think improved – over the year. So for today’s post – I thought I would focus on one of my favourite dolly-related activities – taking photos of the girls, and how I go about doing so. Hopefully there will be some handy tips in there.
