I mentioned earlier this year, that I was looking at a complete overhaul of my collection, and I apologize for not being able to update this blog as often as I would like, but hopefully that will get better soon, and life will be less hectic, with more dolly time. I want to introduce you guys to some of my newest additions, first and foremost, Miss Ruby.
By “an introduction” I really mean, “my introduction” to Dollfie Dream dolls. Doll collecting is a funny thing, at the beginning, you think you’re creeped out by a doll in particular, due to its big eyes, funny limbs, bobble heads, and then slowly you’re converted, and then coveted. That’s what happened to me with Dollfie Dream girls.
I went to my first ever dolly event on the weekend. The first time I heard about Blythe Fest, Australia’s annual Blythe celebration, I was away and couldn’t attend, and the next few times it was in a different state, and at the time I was tied to my desk at work. This time however, I was up from Melbourne to Sydney for work that weekend anyways, so I of course signed up for Blythe Fest tickets as soon as I found out! What a ball it was!!!
I’ve been busy working through my commissions list in the last few days, and have some images to share with you! The idea being is that I work through the entire commissions list first before I take anymore (and plus I am heading into a period of real-life work intensity) and I feel bad if the waiting list is open for too long!
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.
A quick little update.
Now that I am a bit more versed with making full commission girls, and how long it takes to get all the pieces together and shipped to me all over the world I’ve updated my commissions page. I’m now filling slots for February, with the idea of ordering pieces for your girl by the middle of January, and having everything ready to start by mid-February.
If you have contacted me but don’t see yourself on the Feb waitlist please tell me so I can put you on!
I first learnt of Caramelaw after seeing one of her creations on the front cover of the Doll Scene by Louis Bou. I was completely enamoured by the whimsy and the fun of her gorgeous girls. They had a certain style and panache – they were clearly from another world and bursting out of an illustrated candy land. So when Sheena Aw aka Caramelaw asked if I could help her doll home from Auguste Clown, I of course readily agreed. So – for a short few days I had a very special visitor, and I’d like you to meet miss Meilla.
