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
Dear readers! (Anybody here?) I have several good news I want to share. #1 We have moved. We moved from our two-room appartment to our house, from Prague to Prague! I have unpacked almost all boxes except several things I have to find a place for. Our new house means a lot of storage space… Continue reading Some very good news!
I’ve ordered several new wigs from Monique Gold Collection. Eric’s Iplehouse wig was too stiff and voluminous (it looked “ancient-egyptian”) and my cutting experiments with it weren’t exactly succesfull. I’d make a horrible hairstylist. He’s got a Monique Paris 7-8″ in off-black. The hair is very soft and smooth and looks much more realistic. There… Continue reading A bunch of new Monique wigs
I needed a lab coat for a thematic doll photoshoot (I’ll post it later, don’t worry), and there is a good MSD pattern available for free, so I made one and it turned out great! I’d never guess that I can make a coat with lapels. This lab coat is made of off-white cotton poplin… Continue reading Lab coat
We’ve attended this year’s Czech BJD community Christmas Fairy event! You can apply yourself (to make gifts) and your BJDs (to receive gifts) and have fun making presents for another collector’s dolls. I am sorry to say I didn’t make any pictures of the gifts I was sending away but at least you can see… Continue reading Dolly Christmas presents
My photos from a local BJD collectors’ meet-up in Prague. (Last year was nice too.) Prague is a beautiful historic city with tons of photoshoot locations to choose from. There were several local people in the park but they usually just gave us a curious look and maybe added several compliments on our dolls 🙂
To add to the upcoming Halloween spirit, I have a headless doll body on a stand here. Alexandra’s head will be going off for a new face-up on Monday. It will be done by Noodles. Her old one is a custom face-up by Iplehouse – a compromise of Leona A and Kassia A. I love… Continue reading Behold the head of a doll!
I admit: I have tons of unfinished sewing BJD projects (should I mention my three cardboard boxes full of fabrics I bought for some projects and not started them yet?). Two BJD skirts without press studs, two skirts cutted but not sewn together, the same for Erik’s basic blue T-shirt… and one black T-shirt with… Continue reading Biohazard in progress
