A few weeks ago, I sent one of my gorgeous Les Jeunette’s off to Floriana of Almond Doll for a new look. It was a bit of a tough decision, as Les Jeunette is one of my favourites (this blog used to be named for her after all…) but I couldn’t resist. Almond Doll has been one of my favourite customisers for a really long time.
I’ve had a bit of an identity crisis over the weekend and got confused with my Les Jeunette Doll with my blog. I ummed and ah’d over the name of it before and I was never fully decided on it. I’ve started embarking on my doll-house adventures (a team of architects can do this… and I wanted my blog to be more ‘doll’ if that makes sense – at least with the name). First I wanted to redo my logo, and then I decided I wanted to change the name of my blog. And then I did it. Talk about being compulsive!
There’s the first doll that you own – in my case a Hatsune Miku Pullip – and then there’s the one that gets you addicted. I had two when I really fell into the rabbit hole. My second Pullip doll was a Serenity Sailor Moon – another gift. One of my previous childhood loves was Sailor Moon, and when Serenity arrived at my doorstep I was completely fascinated by her delicate lace layers, her floaty dress and ridiculous high-heeled pumps. But I wasn’t hooked – yet.
