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’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!
Could it be almost two years since I made that makeshift Merida costume? It was for a challenge photoshoot “Disney stories”; the dress was actually pinned together on Alexandra’s back and never finished afterwards because its pattern was totally unfitting. I’ve posted this picture in the 2015 gallery only. This dress and arrow do not… Continue reading Merida the Brave: another dress in progress
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
As you may have noticed in the Halloween meet-up gallery, Sashenka’s victorian skirt is finished! And this lovely gentleman noticed how it suits her! 🙂 The skirt is made of two flounces attached to one belt. The bottom flounce aka basic layer has a pattern like this: The top flounce is a simple rectangle strip… Continue reading 1850 black day dress: a skirt
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 🙂
