New Clothes for LittleFees

A little while ago I commissioned two 3pce outfits from Vasilka on Etsy, her crocheting is far better than what I can do myself and I am thrilled with these, they're perfect!


Below Angelique is getting acquainted with Snowdrift.


Ancelina thinks she's a Horse Whisperer and is telling Snowdrift what a wonderful pony he is.


What a week it has been for parcels. Yesterday, I also received my Iplehouse Paige (ordered 19th Sept. and expected next month) and this morning my shipping notice from Fairyland for my PukiFees Tiki and Rin (which I was not expecting until December, seeing they were only ordered 29th Sept.)

Hope you are all having a wonderful week too!

My Early Christmas Box Opening

My Christmas present arrived yesterday from Camelia Dynasty and I was very surprised by the lovely presentation box it came in.


Inside the box everything was securely and neatly packed.


The free gift was the unicorn horn, which I was very pleased with as I had ordered spare mane and tail inserts to make a fantasy set with either mohair or alpaca.


The blushing was okay, but not fantastic, if I was to purchase another, I would do my own blushing. The other slightly negative thing was the stringing, it was really loose, but that's an easy fix. The horse blanket is very well made and I liked that you could select your colours . . . I chose the navy with white trim, but there were several to choose from.

Overall I am happy with Sage who has been renamed Snowdrift and now with the horn, I have two animals in one. The lovely white horse for my human dolls AND a fantasy unicorn for my Elvin folk! That is, I will have, as soon as I do the mane and tail . . . I'm off to Etsy now to find the right colours. :)

Halloween Photo Shoot

Firstly,  I'd like to thank everyone who left messages with good wishes, it really meant a great deal to me. I am slowly getting back to normal and will get round to reading all your blogs over the next few days. In the meantime, here's a photo shoot that I took before my sabbatical.


Nanette: What was that?


Mossy: Only me, I didn't mean to startle you.


Nanette: Where did you come from?


Mossy: Come closer and I'll tell you.


Nanette: Oooh you kissed me, now that wasn't fair!
Mossy: Happy Halloween!

So Sorry

I shan't be posting or making any comments on your blogs for a little while.
I've been feeling a bit washed out lately.


Won't bore you with the details, as I'm sure you have your own problems, but I shall just be taking some time out from blogging until I feel up to being social again.

Hugs,
X

Did You Know?

According to Wikapedia ~

"A ball-jointed doll is any doll that is articulated with ball and socket joints. In contemporary usage when referring to modern dolls, and particularly when using the acronyms BJD or ABJD, it usually refers to modern Asian ball-jointed dolls. These are cast in polyurethane synthetic resin, a hard, dense plastic, and the parts strung together with a thick elastic. They are predominantly produced in Japan, South Korea and China. The BJD style has been described as both realistic and influenced by anime. They commonly range in size from about 60 centimetres (24 in) for the larger dolls, 40 cm (15.5 in) for the mini dolls, and all the way down to 10 cm (4 in) or so for the tiniest of the tiny BJDs. BJDs are primarily intended for adult collectors and customizers. They are made to be easy to customize, by painting, changing the eyes and wig, and so forth.

The modern BJD market began with Volks line of Super Dollfie in 1999. Super Dollfie and Dollfie are registered trademarks but are sometimes erroneously used as generic blanket terms to refer to all Asian BJDs regardless of manufacturer."


To celebrate 17 years of the modern BJD, I thought it would be fun to do a "meme" of sorts and make a magazine cover using PhotoShop Pro X7. Seeing that October is when many of us celebrate Halloween, I have also incorporated that theme. If you would like to have a little fun this month, I would love to see you all join in and do one of your own.

1. You need to think of a name for your magazine.
2. Choose a theme (it can be Halloween or something completely different).
3. Take an appropriate photo using your own BJD's.
4. Use your own editing programme (let us know which one you used).
5. Most of all . . . have fun!
