Back to the basics

Girls of Fall

Time flies and then I realize I haven’t updated in a while. I decided to take some pictures so here’s my Momokos of the day. I also took pictures of all my Petwork’s Momokos and will profile each one that I have. I found out through taking these pics that I have 12 of these original beauties. I really do prefer them to the Sekiguchi model and will probably thin that collection a little bit. Of course, many are candidates for customs.

There’s just something about the Petworks and now Close Clipped Sheep dolls that make them so alluring. They’re are definitely better quality as far as the heads go and they just have a clean simplicity and innocence. Sometimes the Sekiguchi dolls look too made-up for my taste.

On the customizing front I’ve got several works in progess and am finding it difficult to get at least one of them completed. The Blythes in particular have been giving me trouble. My black Blythe doesn’t want to hold the special paint on her body so she stays on the back burner untill I can get the paint on the legs just right. I ran out of hair on a custom Hello Harvest that I was re-rooting and then yesterday I was trying to airbrush her make-up and either would screw it up or just when I had it right the paint would get scratched. I ended up having to completely remove my hardwork and start all over again this morning. Finally I was fresh enough to get it right and now she just waits on more hair. I can’t wait to get her done and post pictures. She’s quite the stunner! A customer has already laid claim on her so I don’t get to keep her and it might sting a little to let her go. But hopefully, she’ll be thrilled as that’s the best reward for me.

I finish off with a picture of my DaBi wearing Blythe Closet Fashions. We did a trade and I must say both of us are very satisfied with our trade. YAY!

For Melissa

Well as one can guess I’m still busy with all these re-root commissions. I’m so busy with them that I’m not always able to take proper pictures of them before sending them off to the customer. Howecer, here’s my latest and she’s one that really jumps out with her sky blue hair. I just love the results and the customer is quite thrilled as well. Cafe au Lait has such a pretty face too that I love using her as a base doll for momoko re-roots.

In Blythe land my Dainty Biscuit arrived and she looks so much better in person than her promo pics put out by CWC. A lot of people were scared off by those pictures and if I had been able to cancel my pre-order, I might have done so based on those pictures. But as you can see with her out of box pictures she’s so much prettier than the promo pics made her out to be.

I’m so glad I got her. I’ve been wanting a pink haired Blythe for a while but the ones that are out are pricey. She looked to be an affordable alternative other than re-rooting. This picture is her stock hair and make-up. But then on flickr, another contact posted pics of her after straightening her frizzy hair and I just fell in love and got out the straigtening iron on my girl. In the process, her lashes got too wet and fell out so I had to replace them. She’s looking pretty sweet and I will take some new pictures of her with her more mangeable hair and new lashes.

But the re-roots call me back to work so it will have to wait till next time.

Have a Happy Dolly week all!
