Today’s Momoko is my latest custom up for sale on my sale page. She has been re-rooted in brunette Katsilk and has added freckles and repainted lips. Cafe au Lait has such pretty make-up but boring hair so here she is with a new hairstyle. I guess I’m on a freckle kick from the last custom I did.
Here’s a Lati I adopted from a lovely person in Spain. She’s a Lati White basic special Lily. She’s is only 4 1/2 inches tall and fits in the palm of my hand. I’ve named her Chiyo-chan. She epitomizes the word Kawaii which means cute in Japanese. She’s wearing a dress from Kelly’s wardrobe. The special body is a little taller than the basic body so there’s even smaller Lati’s than this.
I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year’s Celebration. Here’s a Blythe of the day. She’s Ichigo Heaven and she’s modeling in front of some nice paper that my husband got me for Christmas. He also ordered Lati Lea so I’m anxiously awaiting her arrival which will probably be sometime this month.
On the doll projects I finished a cool commission I really like. The customer asked for Snow White momoko to be re-rooted with a princess hair cut and red streaks in black hair. Here are the results.
She’s also modeling in front of the papers hubby got me.
May your 2008 be great and prosperous and full of happiness and peace.
Happy doll day!
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!
