I feel like time has really escaped from me this week! A huge job came in and it’s been all hands on deck, and I’m leaving on Wednesday for London (had to be pushed forward, thought it was going to be Friday!). After that, we’re heading to Iceland. My husband has told me I’m allowed to bring one dolly with me on my trip to photograph, on the proviso he pick her. So he picked Nori, because she’s obviously his favourite by miles.
Mandarake really is Evil
So….Scurvygrrrl had warned me that Mandarake was the spawn of the devil, and I didn’t even realise until I saw how unspeakably easy it was to order from them… and how much cheaper it is compared the US because of the Australian Exchange rate!
Trixie, The Swarovski Girl.
I’ve introduced you before to my clone Blythe girl with fabulous blond hair. I haven’t had time to do much doll stuff recently as I’ve been organising my wedding (16th of May!). I finally found […]
Working on a new Blondie
So, after receiving Agnes and deciding I could never touch her, as I loved her too much, I ordered some fakies to practice customising on. Whereas Pullip releases kits for you to customise, for Blythe, […]
Delilah, The Swarovski Concept Blythe
I haven’t had a chance to draw in a long time – I’ve had this idea for a customized Blythe in my head for the last couple of months and I thought I would do […]
Audrey, the forever WIP
I was browsing Yahoo Japan one day when a broken Pullip Varele showed up for around AUD$20. I couldn’t resist. I snapped her up, and she arrived bald, with half an eyebrow sanded off. I mean, in my mind I do designer artistic things for a living, so how hard can doll customisation be?
Ramen, the Noodle Yeolume journey continues
I got to work on my Yeolume Blackberry over the weekend. I’ve been growing fonder and fonder of her recently. Her wig, as mentioned before is absolutely amazing, but her faceup was crooked, and I really wanted to give her a new look. So, I embarked again on a customising adventure.
Udon, my Noodle-legged Yeolume
Yeolume is a weird little dolly in the Pullip family. She appeared for two releases (Podo and Blackberry) before her releases dried up faster than the Sahara. I’d be the first to admit that she wasn’t my favourite dolly, but after seeing some truly gorgeous versions of her… I decided she may have potential as a customisation.
Gumji, the Ruby-Haired Blythe
Blythe dolls are a curiosity to me. Their large heads, shiny faces, and eyes that change colour. It was through browsing Flickr and seeing Almond Doll’s and Hola Gominola’s that I started to love this weird little gal.
