Another Kenner!

After her hair treatment

I’m still amazed at the opportunity that fell in my lap the past 2 weeks. A fellow doll collector and flickr buddy has developed a new love for Petwork’s Momokos. Previously a Blythe collector, he started his search of Petworks girls and came accross my collection in my flickr photostream. I had some of his dream girls-particulary Nadiff. He had posted on several boards a want to by notice on this girl. I thought about it but wasn’t quite ready to give her up since I just got her not too long ago. But then he contacted me. So I decided to look at his collection to see if there was any girl I was looking for. I saw he had some Kenner girls so I mentioned I’d be willing to work out a trade for one of his Kenners. I thought to myself that he probably wouldn’t go for it but it turned out he was thinking of letting go of his blonde sidepart! My heart lept and I was taken aback thinking it was too good to be true. I knew I’d have to let go of more than just Nadiff in the deal. I struggled to think who else could go and finally decided on 03AN who came with Nadiff. He was looking for her also so we worked out a deal. Of course, he got some extras and some cash but thankfully it was within my reach. I had wanted a blonde Kenner and put her on my wishlist thinking it would be a while before I could afford her. So to suddenly have her and not have it be too painful as far as money and trades is really the best part. He’s got his dream girls and I got mine and we are both just ecstatic over the deal.

It was hard to focus on my dolly projects during all this but I did get some done and here’s the latest commission. She’s a Whiter Shade of Blue Momoko re-rooted in toyokalon. The customer wanted the pin straight texture to achieve this Princess cut. I found toyokalon hard to work with but definitely will use it as an option for when I want that super straight look the the BT06 red and black girls have and my 03RD has.

Doll therapy

First doll of the year

Here’s Silver Crescent- my first doll of the year and this is after I said I wouldn’t get any more Sekiguchi momokos. Best laid plans. I saw her out of box pictures and she had rave reviews from all who owned her so I decided since I let some other dolls go, I had room for her. She really is much more beautiful in person. She’s very glamorous and I think one of the best Sekiguchi releases in a while. And right now she’s providing some good therapy for a stressful week of MIA packages. I’m hoping it’s just some holiday season fall out and the packages reach their destination.

I’ve been busy with several projects. Here’s the latest custom Momoko request. Rou Rou Momoko wanted a sister and the customer had me vary the look using blonde hair and two tails instead of one. This was previously Day off Delight Momoko who has a very similar face to Rou Rou. I added the freckles to complete the likeness. She’s pretty cute. Very sweet and innocent looking. Maybe Rou Rou’s younger sister?

Also was busy making a playroom for the living dollies. The tent can come out and a the inflatable guest bed can go in it’s place for when grandma visits. See grandma, we haven’t forgot about you. The little table can double as a night stand with a reading lamp. They’re making good use of the room so far and hopefully we can set up clickstart on the spare little t.v. in there.
