Emmeline isn’t a Wicked Queen or anything like that, but she’s a bit of a beauty and she knows it, and flaunts it. You can constantly see her flicking her hair – understandably, as it falls past her shoulders and many lengths past her toes. I’ve shown you guys a sneak peek of this girl before, but now that she’s finished – here are her final pictures. I’d like you to meet Miss Emmeline, an ethereal, ghostly, beauty.
Things have been super busy at Chez Dollhouse. My exhibitions have finally started to wind down, so I have been able to work on a few girls. Currently, I have 4 girls in progress mode, and one girl has just arrived this week for a New Year’s makeover. So… here’s a little sneak peek of what I am going to be up to!
Back in May, I excitedly shared Groove’s announcement that they would be releasing Alura as a Dolly Japan Magazine exclusive. Alura is the sister to Laura, released earlier this year and is part of the “Creator’s Label” collection. They are both styled by the ever-talented Laura (or Pure Embers as she is known on Flickr), and have a combined collaboration with Mistubachi@BabyBee (face up) x Momolita (outfit).
I remember when I first started collecting Pullips. My brother had bought me a Hatsune Miku for my birthday, and I was researching them and wondering what they were all about. I fell in love with two – Kiyomi and Alice Du Jardin Mint. Kiyomi was available at the time, but I wasn’t ready to plunge (and I regret this every day) and Alice Du Jardin was long sold out. It didn’t help that many people stated she was their favourite, and watching videos of her (I’m looking at yours, Omochacrush!) really fuelled the lust. Some 25 dolls later, I still don’t have Kiyomi – but I do now have Mint!
I’ve been stuck in bed all weekend, and didn’t get as much work done as I’d like. But, happily, I did manage to get started on a few of the dolls I have waiting for commission as I wait for the supplies for the others to arrive.
Thalassa holds the record of being the girl that has travelled the furthest to visit my workshop. Coming all the way from Chile, Thalassa is an Selkie who thinks she is a mermaid. She started her life as a Merl Nostalgia, and she came my way to match her personality (and her awesome eyechips) with a new face-up.
It was a busy dolly weekend for me! Lots of making things, and finishing off some commissions. I wanted to share with you one of the girls from the weekend, a chocolate and wine coloured girl for Angie.
