The fabrics I ordered still haven´t arrived, so I could´t sew anything new this past week =( I was a bit dissapointed because they were supposed to arrive more than a week ago. 5 days ago they contacted me saying that some of the items were out of stock, thus the shipping still wasn´t completed >.< I contacted them straight away and am now expecting my order for monday (as per the information they gave me)
I will use this post then to talk about lovely dolls I recently discovered. They are BJD, and although most of them are all beautiful and very detailed I deeply fell in love with two of them: Lati Yellow and Pukifee from Fairyland. They are just so adorable!! Here are some pictures of my current favourites:
And these are the sources where I got the images from, in order:

And I repeat: I looove them. I stare at them and start to melt. The size, the shape or their bodies, the faces… they look so childish and are so cute! I can spend hours looking at their pictures in Google, their owners really know how to make them look charming.
I like the Pukifee Pong Pong because it is SO smiley and happy, opposite to the majority of dolls that have sad or melancholic faces. I understand that kind of expressions are so tender but after some time I would be so frustrated because I can not make my doll happy… That’s the main reason why I excluded other dolls from my list. My mini Ddungs are very cute but looks like they are never satisfied. On the other hand, Lati Lami has also caught my eye: if I decide going for the Lati it will probably be this one.
But there is one inconvenient I find here: the money. BJD tend to be quite expensive, and normally the price does not even include wigs or make up, what means you will have to pay an extra fee. At least, clothes wouldn’t be a problem for me since I would make her all kind of outfits =P I considered buying the specific paints and try to do the face up myself, but maybe it is a bit risky… What will you do?
Definitely, I know I will end buying one =P It´s being so difficult to make a decission! Both Pukifee and Lati have very sweet expressions, I have also read reviews about them and they both have some pros and cons… For example, I like the fact that Pukifee has a articulated body, but Lati has a very cute bottom. Also, I like more the way Lati’s head is attached to the body, but Pukifee has magnets for different accesories, on the top of Pukifee’s legs you don’t see the strings… I still need to work on my decission =P

Apart from that, I still don´t know if it would be a brand new, or maybe a second hand (I am not really aware of second hand market in this field, but everytime I visit the Lati Yellow webpage, they all appear as sold and second hand is the only option I see available =( )
So if you know any good second hand market or have any recommendation, please tell me!
And please help make up my mind! If you own or have seen any of the dolls mentioned above, I hope to read your comments. I know some people would say: go for both!!, but that is not really an option right now.
Also, I would like to know what are your favourites, so don’t hesitate to share them with me =D
I look forward to read your comments. Enjoy the Sunday! ♥
