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!
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 >.<!
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.
Last week, I made my first alpaca wig from the alpaca hair I had lying around (in white, and I had some pink dye for some locks – from some forgotten dreams of Blythe re-rooting) but I felt that it didn’t really suit my girl. Olive said it made her look a little punk – and I agreed with her – it wasn’t quite the look I was planning, but I did what I could on hand as I couldn’t stand her bald ha!
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…?
