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.
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.
February is a horribly busy month for me. I teach an intensive at the University where we try to build a huge structure in a fortnight, and let’s just say its one tiring slog with not much sleep. Completely exhausting, and barely any sleep (I’m like a zombie that has emerged from a deep bottomless pit) so I apologize for the very slow dolly updates! (I’m also having an awful time deciding which girl to get… Kiyomi Mint? My Melody? The Little Prince girls? AH! TOO MANY, February!). I’ve managed over the last few days to get some rest, and now finally I can get back into my dolly mojo.
I managed to sneak over to pick up six very fabulous visitors though, which I will slowly introduce to everyone here. I also managed to do a very quick photoshoot with the first two… and what an absolutely special girl I have today.
Everyone, meet Lola.
About one day before I left for Shanghai, a very special box arrived at my doorstep. Unassuming and brown, inside, the box held a little girl of wonder, rainbows and colour! I’d like for you to meet Bubblegum, my very own G.Baby girl.
Emmeline isn’t a Wicked Queen or anything like that, but she’s a bit of a beauty and she knows it, and flaunts it. You can constantly see her flicking her hair – understandably, as it falls past her shoulders and many lengths past her toes. I’ve shown you guys a sneak peek of this girl before, but now that she’s finished – here are her final pictures. I’d like you to meet Miss Emmeline, an ethereal, ghostly, beauty.
The ‘Flower Shower’ girls (Penny and Berry) were the 18th Limited Edition releases for JerryBerry, and the Summer release for JerryBerry. When they were announced, I love all the teaser photographs for them. Light, airy, with a little summer breeze. The girls looked sleepy and glowy as they passed summer days and nights. With this in mind, and keen to see what the process was like to order a Limited doll from Jerryberry, plus I was in my Jerryberry loving mode. Penny arrived 6 weeks after I ordered her.
Doll collection is such a dangerous hobby. Flickr is place where your wallet can go to die as beautiful pictures of these dollies produce lemmings like no other. I make lists and lists and wait […]
After practicing customising a bit, I decided to buy a cheaper Blythe to play with. I still can’t justify messing up a really pretty doll yet. Lorshek Molseh was on sale (her name is an anagram of the beloved Sherlock Holmes) on CCT, and I picked her up thinking her little moustache was comical and her outfit was a bit knaff but cute all the same.
