Wow! It’s been so long…. 1.5 months since I posted! I am so sorry… but, I have been good and keeping my Instagram up to date. Since I have last spoken to you here, I’ve gotten a few new girls *YAY* and a boy (another coming) and then finished a few commissions, done an installation overseas, and finally had some time to work on some parts that I have had floating around for a couple of months (or over a year in some cases…!) Let’s see how well I can update >.<!
One day in July I was clacking away at my computer when I received a ping from an unknown messenger. “Hello” The message said politely. The message was from a Christopher, who wanted to surprise one of my favourite dolly people ever (Omochacrush) on her birthday with a dolly. And… because I love surprises, covert operations, dollies, and Angie, I gleefully typed yes, and our grand plan was in place.
It’s been almost a month since my Volks SDGr Mytyl arrived. She came during my busiest period, so I have only been able to work on her in parts, and today, I’d like to show you my little journey with her so far. She was my first SDGr-sized doll (57cm tall) which makes her officially my largest dolly to date – but…. her head is still smaller than Pullip and Blythes! Handy, when it comes to customising. So, lets meet Mytyl.
I have a thing for grumpy faced dolls. I find them completely adorable, a little disapproving frown, thinking, what are you doing Owner Lady, why did you dress me so silly? When I had an opportunity to send my dolly to the Queen of the Adorable Grumpy Face (S.Cola Custom Dolls) I literally jumped at the opportunity. As a preface, thank you Sylvia for making my girlie so awesome!
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 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!!!
That feeling when you open up the bubble wrap and these gorgeous, big eyes peep out at you, and then your heart explodes. BOOM. I was a goner, and this little girl had completely captured it with one wee peep. I’d like you to meet Popcorn, or Poppy.
