Meegiko wants a sister

March 11, 2008

So I think I’m going to get her one. I’d like a Lati with less of a frown and am looking at Lumi. And I’m definitely selecting the make-up option so I can just enjoy her when she arrives. I went and touched up Meegiko’s make-up as I found myself obsessing about any perceived imperfections. Oh well. I’m happy with her now… for now…

I made Meegiko some dresses. The same A-line pattern from puchicollective only Lati sized. She’s wearing one of them and I’m getting the hang of the machine. Still going at a painfully slow pace but since these dresses are so small it doesn’t matter. It still gets done fast since there’s only at most a 3 inch line of fabric. I hope to tackle another kind of pattern like the empire dress.

I’m squeezing these little me projects in between re-roots. Here’s my latest, a re-rooted 04NY. The customer wanted an opposite version of Dramatic bride and 04NY is the perfect doll to do that. Imagine Dramatic bride without melanin and this is what you get. She’s a nice fresh cool version. Here she wearing R&D’s Midnight Sparkle dress.

So I just realized I think I’ve had this blog up for a year now. I can’t believe how time flies. I was reminded of this because of a comment on one of my very first 60cm face-ups. Admittingly not my best work but hey, it was my first one. So here’s my latest one. I had his picture up a few days ago but ended up redoing him and like him better now. Not so washed out looking and very sweet and innocent. I re-worked this wig too so that it would be more boyish. Gave it a haircut and turned it on it’s side. I may still get another wig for him as this one is kind of funky.

So today was quite a happy doll day. I finally got Princess a’ La mode after a few months of buying her. She was waiting on the release of Momoko Slow Smile Traditional. That release was delayed quite a bit so PAM now named Midori was waiting in Japan for a while. I guess you can say it was an early Christmas for me. Such colorful girls. Who knew I’d be drawn to fantasy hair color.

The lure of the ABJD

I’ve had this head for a while. It’s a DIM Persia head. I was going to give him a face-up and then sell him but decided to keep him. And while I liked this face-up o.k., I started getting nit picky and next thing I know, I almost started over again. I’ll take pics of that tomorrow. He’s waiting on an outfit from Volk’s because he’s got nothing to wear. I got him a track suit because that’s all I can afford at the moment. Man, the clothes for these type of dolls get expensive!!! But they’re very cool. I’ll definitely go for the more rocker punk look I think. We’ll see what strikes me.

In the Blythe world, I got Retro Mama. I just couldn’t take it anymore and had to get her. I sold some things to pay for her and I’m not sorry I had to let some other dolls go. She is so cool. She has this luminescent skin. Very cool. I’m also waiting on Princess Al a Mode. I actually got her in late October but was waiting on Slow Smile Momoko’s release and expect them in one big package from Crescent. Ichigo Heaven is in there as well so it’ll be quite a dolly bonanza. And that’s it for dolls purchases this year. Honest, I swear… Oh wait, I pre-ordered Follow My Back Momoko. But that’s really it. Anyway, here’s a picture of Meringue, my Mrs. Retro Mama aka MRM.

Picture packed weekend!

So BIG!!!

I thought I’d take a fun break and do some quickie photo shoots. Quickie because I maybe get 10 minutes to take these pictures before a living dolly comes along and knocks down the set-up or wants a snack. So here’s my RDP Angel. I’m taking baby steps in the customizing process with these dolls. I made the mistake of trying to open Velvet Minuet’s head and found it didn’t want to and I ended up doing some damage 😦 So I sent her off to the dolly doctor- Someone who knows all the little ins and outs of Blythe and the slightly different head molds and their individual challenges. So for now I’ll just sand matte and change chips or make-up. I plan to do more as I learn more. I just love the customs I see out there. So many possibilities that I have to learn about this and I’m up for the challenge.

Now here’s Gaz my Sooni Dal. Ain’t she as cute as a button? This series of dolls really remind me of my older daughter. The name Gaz is taken from the animated series Invader Zim. I saw some similarities between Dib’s little sister Gaz and this doll. Although Fiori’s hair matches Gaz hair color which is a purplely color.

Gaz gotta new outfit just for her.

Now on to dolly projects, I just finished and listed an Obitsu Gretel head on eBay last night. I went for the natural fresh face or just woke up and rinsed my face look. Click here or on the picture to view or bid.

3 day weekend

Iveta's miracle party girl reroot

Well it’s another Friday and time just doesn’t slow down does it. At least it’s a 3 day weekend for us here in the USA with Memorial day weekend. My momoko today is a rerooted commission of Miracle Party Girl. I love her new hair color. I was never wild about this dolls make-up but now it fits her perfectly. She still needs a fleshtone Sekiguchi body so please contact me if interested in selling one. I can then forward to the owner of this lovely head. She’s desperately searching for a body right now.

I’ve been pretty busy with dolly projects with my new Blythe obsession and also just trying to get at least 3 customs listed on eBay a week. Here are my latest obitsu heads. One is a 1/6 size and the other is a Haruka 60cm head.

New Gretel Head

Anika's Annoyed

Poor Anika hasn’t had her picture taken in a while so she’s my momoko of the day. I hope all you moms out there had a wonderful mother’s day. I certainly did. My cute little girls gave me a card. I guess my older one who’s almost 4 dictated to daddy what was written in the card. It said “Thanks for loving me” SO CUTE! Or kawaii!

I also got an eBay gift certificate so I was able to get another Blythe- Piccadilly Encore. For now I’m enjoying all the Blythe pics at places like flickr. So many and boy do they get expensive! I’ll just stick with the newer less special ones for now. I look forward to tweaking on them.

I have a new Obitsu Gretel head up on eBay tonight. Click here or on the picture to view or bid.

Fashion frenzy!

New Clothes

Well, since my momoko family has expanded I thought it was time to focus on getting them some great clothes. Here’s my hazy wind reroot modeling the Volk’s WTG fashions. I’ve named her Ruby. I’m not always quick to name my dolls and sometimes my 3 yr old helps me. Any doll with light long hair and bangs get the name of Clippy for some reason. Any doll with long dark hair with bangs get the name “Sammy” like my Daisy D. I guess it depends on their hairstyle. She comes up with good names every so often. Like Jill, my rerooted poodle, who’s in a new home now. The new owner kept that name for her and it fits her quite well.

I do have a new face-up on eBay right now. It’s an Obitsu Haruka head. Click here or on the picture to view or bid.
