Dolls : I fell in love with them ^^

Hola amigos!

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:

Pukifee Ante and Lati Yellow Lami by http://www.flickr.com/photos/ateliermomoni/

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!  ♥

Hot news!

Hey all! So here I am with more news ^^

If you have a look at this page, you will find new stuff.

In a first place, I have finally completes the “Doll measurements” section. Currently there are also the measures for mini Ddung (as it is the only doll I have right now). If you are interested, I could add the measures for the mini Bratz Baby as well. Also, it would be great if you send me the measures of your dolls, as I’m sure it would help some people (myself I’m very curious about the sizes, as I’ve never had other of these dolls in my hands)

In a second place, I’ve also fallen in the Pinterest fever. I only started it some days ago, but I’m starting to like it a lot, you can really find amazing stuff =)

Join me on Pinterest =)

By chance, I found there La Ratita Tejedora and liked all her boards, I inmediately started following her. She has patterns for several dolls and collected a lot of dollies lovely ideas. I recommend you to visit her =) Oh! you can also find the link to my Pinterest on the right bar. I will update it with new designs! =D

What more? Oh! Since I’m opening a store I considered convenient to link to it from this blog. You can find the link in the right bar too. Remember the opening is tomorrow! At the beginning there will only be a few outfits, but just give me some time =P I hope you come along!  Here I offer you a small preview of some of the outfits you can find:

Lovely Fuyumi

Sweet hanako

And in relation to this matter, last week I ordered quite a lot of new fabrics to myfabrics.co.uk and I still haven’t received them… I placed the order almost two wees ago so I guess they should be home soon… I hope they don’t delay any more as I can not wait to start sewing my new designs! =P

Have you ever purchased from them? Do you know any good place for buying fabrics?

Share your Pinterest with us! Tell me in the comments! =D

Safe and sound!

Hi again all of you! =D After a few months I’m back again!

First of all, sorry for dissapearing like that. I got an overload of things to do between the university and work, that made impossible for me to even sew a single dress for my dolls =( So yes, since February my little dolls have been abandoned and I haven’t touched a needle!

So, as an update, by the end of July I finished my degree in Spain =D and a few days later I came back to Ireland were my girls were waiting for me. I resumed sewing soon with a lot of ideas I left pending. Cool!

And here is another update: from now on you will be able to find my outfits on my online store ^^ I’ve been working on it these past days, I have also created some new outfits and I have already ordered lots of new fabrics to go on sewing! =D At the moment

The opening will be next Saturday, August 24th, don’t miss it! 😉 I hope you like it and hope to hear your comments! =)

And that’s all for today. I still have much to do regarding the online store so I must go back to work. More news soon!

Introducing Sylvanian families

The other day I went to a shopping center and saw them. I already knew them, bacause I saw them in many Flickr pages and some other shops, but never bought any because they are a bit expensive… BUT in this shopping center all the toys were in special offer so… They came home =P

image

There are lots of pets and also in different sizes and with looooots of complements. If you want to have a look to all the variety that exist, you can visit their web page http://www.sylvanianfamilies.com/.

My two baby mice still have no name and I am not sure if I will call him somehow, but they did have time for playing with Hanako, Natsuki, Fuyumi and Luke =)

image

I will have to stop looking at this picture because such cute dolls plus such cute pets is too much cuteness!

Now having some fun with the baby mice ^^

And talking a bit about everything, in the following days I would like to resume the sewing days and have some new outfits for the girls. Luke will have to wait because I don’t feel like making some trousers at the moment =P More dresses soon!

And what about Sylvanian families? Do you already knew these pets? Do you have any? Which one is your favourite?

See you soon!

A little update =)

Yes! I am still here! =D

First of all, sorry for not passing by as often as I used to, but I have been inmersed in other duties.

As you already know, I was focused on my project for the University and that took almost all of my time. Then I encountered a problem with it and had to think for a new method to make it work… Currently I am waiting for some of the new pieces to arrive. Patience…

In the meantime, my housemates decided that they were leaving the house. We had five days to look for new housemates. Our search did not get any results so we had to leave the house as well asap! =( More stress!! Thanks to a friend this process is being less painful as we are staying with them while we find somewhere to go. Here comes the drama again: we found a nice apartment, paid the deposit, filled in a form and today received a call from the agency saying that we may not be having the apartment as there was also another couple interested! Conclusion: I am currently waiting for a call just to know if I will get that apartment or not… not a pleasant situation at all =(

Well, let’s get this apart for a moment and focus on the good things. Starting for the closest one, my boyfriend and I are going to Brussels for the weekend, another place to add to the list! =D

Also, I’ve been planning our next holidays. Still more than a month to it but I don’t want to miss anything! This is going to be a wonderful trip to a place I’ve always dreamt of, New York!! =D Oh, I’m so excited! Flights and accomodation are ready, Another great plan (I will reveal it in te future) is ready =P Now it’s time to decided which attractions to visit and to find any other unusual places to go to. Ideas? Suggestions?

As an unrelated matter, I’ve been playing with some apps for the phone and have to say that I loooooooove photo editing applications =P Hence, the photos you are seeing in this post Aren’t they lovely? ^^ All of them made using Pho.to Lab. This is a free application and has sooooo many frames! Try it if you haven’t yet 😉

And now, regarding this blog, I still have lots of ideas (even more) to post in the blog. So just for you to know what is coming next:

– I have a new pattern to upload, is almost ready. Is it inspired by an animation character.

– Also, about a week after Fuyumi arrived, another brother arrived to my hands (so here you have a clue, this time is a boy). Of course this was another present from my boyfriend =P

– Lots of ribbons, laces and ornaments for upcoming dresses joined my team. This means super cute dresses =)

And that is all by now. I hope to be here again soon with more things to show you. And what about you? In what are you working these days?

Enjoy, see you and take care =)
