Last Doll of the Year

Last doll of the year
Follow My Back Momoko arrived yesterday and she’s very pretty and unique. She has the cutest little beauty mark below her eye. In the promo pics people complained saying it looked like a spec of paint. But when you see it in person, it looks like a freckle and fits well adding that extra touch.

She’s the last doll I expect to get this year and a good one to end my ever growing collection for the year. I’m going to have to consider letting some other dolls go if I’m really going to continue collecting different dolls. Most of my Sekiguchi Momokos are in the wait pile for a new look and then probably offered for sale. I’m probably not going to keep adding Blythes with a few exceptions here and there and only after I let some others go. I just don’t have the space or attention span to have hundreds of dolls. I only have 2 shelves that I can devote to my dolls. So all this is going on my New Years resolutions. Maybe I’ll have to watch some Clean Sweep episodes to inspire me not to hoard.

Compare and Contrast

The weather outside is… RAINY. So I’ve been getting some re-roots done. Always seems to be some that I need to do. Here’s one of them for a customer. She was previously Baby Blue Labyrinth. I got this curly hair from dollyhair.com and it sure saves me time in curling hair. She’s wearing last year’s Odd Girl Out dress.

Here’s another set of my favorite doll, (well blythe is also a favorite,) and it’s sort of a technical comparison of a real BT06 next to my fake BT06. The red head is the fake. Her hair is saran and from what I understand, is a little brighter than the original. I heard that the real one has the same color hair as Victorian Nature red which I have. I’ll have to take side by side pictures of the red heads. The black haired girl who’s the real deal has different kind of hair. I’ve heard it’s called toyokalon and it’s bouncier and springier than saran. Saran has a more natural way that it falls whereas toyokalon stays stick straight. I suppose if I got really obsessed with getting the hair just right I could get some toyokalon but I love Ruby the way she is and the thought of starting over does not thrill me.

03AN

I just realized it’s been at least a week since my last post. Here’s 03AN Momoko. She was not on my list of wants but crept in as I saw more pictures of her and decided to make her my next Momoko. And just like that she came as a result of a trade. She looks really good in hats and can fit in them pretty well since she has little bulk in hair.

On the project front I’ve been taking some personal time working on my own stuff in between commissions. I do appreciate those awaiting their dolls spa treatment patience so I can recharge my batteries. Here’s a Blythe doll that’s been a work in progress for a while. She’s previously a Tailor Gibson and has had her hair dyed several times. The problem with Tailor’s hair is the greenish cast that is almost impossible to get rid of. I kind of like this ashy color so I think she’s done. I’ll probably post her for sale on my website. But here’s her picture in the meantime.
