Dolly Bonanza

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.

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.
