Coming Soon!

I accidently came across a little cutie the other day and although it was love at first sight, my purse was relieved that this one's pre-order date had been and gone.

Then out of the blue one became available on the USA secondary market, but the lass had not received the doll as yet. I made enquiries and with her help we arranged for the doll to come to me straight from the artist Liz Frost of Wizworx (whom I paid, then Liz refunded the original payment back to the lass who had previously paid for the doll).

Of course the doll (which could easily be a boy or a girl, hence the names Finn or Fifi) will come to me quite naked, but with eyes and face up.

I was thinking this cheeky little face would make a perfect Miss Muffet, who would sit prettily on a tuffet ~ which for those who don't know, is a foot stool or low seat i.e. a pouffe, and something I could easily make myself.

My imagination has already painted a picture in my mind, and I can see her in a pretty bonnet, wearing a dress of white broderie anglaise, with bloomers peeking below.

I am extremely happy about supporting Australian BJD artists, and overjoyed to have finally discovered some "home grown" talent.

Both recent doll purchases, are the size I love best of all (around 13-14" tall) ~ so I have a feeling there will be many more Liz Frost and Kaye Wiggs dolls arriving in my studio in the not too distant future . . . so much for saying no more dolls!! :)

  2. What a little cutie! I love the quirky look, she really is sweet. I think she might be mischief though, so be prepared! ;)
    I look forward to seeing more of your own photos of her when she arrives as the Miss Muffet idea does sound great.
    I agree it's lovely when you find 'local' artists to support. I felt the same when I bought my Enyo from Laura of Irealdoll when I met her at the Blythe Con Europe here in Malaga last year! It's also nice when you can support individuals rather than companies all the time, isn't it!
    Hugs xxx

    1. I had a feeling you would like her Sharon and yes, I am well prepared for her mischievous antics. Looking at Liz's photos, I think this little miss is going to be quite photogenic, so I'll be taking lots for sure.

    1. Oh I did indeed Niina. I think she will, I've been waiting for her to arrive for a clothes fitting (she should have been here Friday and AP have informed me she may not even arrive today).

    1. Hi Alasse,
      That's what I love most about this doll, I hope she arrives tomorrow, I'm getting antsy now. So much for Express post, I'm afraid AP don't know the meaning of the word. :(

  7. They're adorable. They remind me of Kaye Wiggs dolld a bit and a bit of some of the Disney Animators repaints I've seen.
    I had no idea there even were any Australian BJD artists

    1. Thank you Rachael. Yes, Kaye and Liz are both Aussie BJD artists, but unfortunately not promoted enough on home soil.
