I’ve tried a couple of wigs on Arthur. He was wearing a 5-6″ Monique Paris in ginger brown so far. I wanted a short wig for him too, so I tried to cut a second-hand Monique Libby. It turned out horribly; instead of a Regency age gentleman, I ended up with Jim Carrey in Dumb… Continue reading Chewin Gallapa doll wigs on Arthur
I was considering getting a new camera since Christmas. I’ve had my cheap compact for over four years and wasn’t really happy with it. Yes, it can fit in your pocket and you can take it everywhere but when it comes to a doll or costuming photography, the results weren’t really good. My husband had… Continue reading Bought a new camera!
This is the promised post about Alexandra’s violet dress worn at the Valentine BJD meet-up Prague. Her “dress” is actually a turtleneck T-shirt with a separate trained skirt and blue satin ribbon covering the skirt top. The turtleneck T-shirt is a prototype of a pattern I drawed two weeks ago. As you can see, the… Continue reading Flower petal skirt with a train
Local Valentine meet-ups are special – they have a doll dresscode! This year’s theme was “Strange flowers exhibit”. Alexandra wore a turtleneck tee with an artificial petal skirt. I’ll show her outfit in an extra post. Thanks to everyone for a nice Saturday afternoon!
I knew that aGatti makes nice realistic looking SDs. I don’t collect SDs (too big for me) but when I realized they make Nac Mac Feegles, wonderful life-sized models of tiny warlike pictsies from Terry Pratchett’s Discworld… I was doomed. I love Discworld and the Witches storyline including Feegles is my favourite one. I ordered… Continue reading Box opening: Nac Mac Feegles by aGatti
I’ve finally seen the new Star Wars Episode VIII: The Last Jedi last Friday and it was awesome! I’ll have to think some matters over but my overall impression is positive. NO SPOILERS here though – and I ask the same from you because hey, let’s not be assholes, could we? Tchibo released some SW… Continue reading Star Wars doll tees!
Arthur is back from my court face-up artist. The painter did a wonderful job as always but now when I see Arthur, I’m not entirely sure about his scars. Maybe the one going over his eye is just too much. Or, I don’t know, I’ll let him to settle in and wait for the result.… Continue reading Arthur’s face-up
On last Monday (5th June 2017) I was quite surprised. Our postman called me around 9am and asked if I was home because there was a parcel from abroad for me in his pickup! A parcel! THE box! Not the annoucement from a customs office! I had to be a very nice girl to be… Continue reading Arthur’s box opening
My friend told me about this Star Wars merchandising. It’s a miniature stormtrooper helmet filled with candy, stickers and a small toy. Honestly, I was more interested in the helmet itself because it seemed to be of perfect scale for my dolls. There was an obstacle in my way, of course – I had to… Continue reading Stormtrooper helmet for a doll
