In my last post, I mentioned how I started my foray into Dollfie Dream Dolls, and then I thought I would follow my own advice and search for the dollie that I wanted instead of filling the void with dolls that kinda were similar. That’s what began my search for Volks DDS Mariko.
Those of you who have been following my dolly adventures know that I originally acquired my Winter for her SDGr Body, but then fell in love with her sculpt and had to keep her. It’s been a bit of a journey acquiring Saki and putting her together, but finally, I can show you! Here she is – the reason why I wanted an SD BJD in the first place!
This post is very, very late in the making! Life got out of control during the last month (so… many…projects) but finally I have some time to sit down for some Dolly Time! And so, for that, I want to introduce you to this stunning lady, my Unoa Sist 1.5, who I’ve named Rosamund (she was Marshmallow previously… but got too cool for her name… it’s funny how that happens!) – but now, please meet Rosamund. She’s just completely photogenic, and captured my heart.
I was so excited to see another creator’s label doll released this year. This time, it was a pair of twins (Callie & Cassie) by the fabulous HAPPYDOLLY/Memento (I’ve linked here to the promo pictures and her facebook profile). I thought I was on a pullip wind-down, but as soon as you say that of course, you fall in love with another. It took me a while to decide on just one sister (it was hard not going to lie), but she arrived in all her glory straight from Japan this week. Let’s meet Callie.
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!
Look at her, strutting her stuff, in her fluffy pink bear suit and dress. I mean, her expression is full of attitude! To pull off such a bear costume, you better be confident wearing. Everyone, meet Miss February, Cherie Babette.
Q-Pot has always been one of my favourite fun fashion brands from Japan. I’ve been a fan of their keyrings, not even mentioning their adorable collaboration with Sailor Moon. So when Milk BisQuit de Q-Pot Blythe came up for sale, I jumped on the opportunity to own this sweet, sweet girl.
