First of all I want to show you how Padma looks now. Since I got her I wanted to give her a new hair-do and accessories to make her more her character. Padma is a Dorani (Nomad) and her people is inspired by Gypsy and Indian culture.
I have worked on her a couple of weeks ago but I still hadn’t had the opportunity to take some pictures of her finished look. I gave her a couple of thin braid with some accessories and also two gold piercings (a nose and a sign on her forehead) and I think she looks so perfect now! Completely as I envisioned her 🙂
In other news though I have been on quite a doll buying phase of totally unplanned dolls. So there will be 3 new additions to my family soon. Ooops 😉 I actually got a small bonus this month and I ended spending it on dolls…but I guess it is justifiable if they make you happy, right?
The first one was a BJD British Cat from ElleoDolls on Etsy. I have been wanting a cat BJD for so long and I finally placed an order for this beauty! I wanted a “chubby” cat, not the usual siamese/asian style cats you see a lot, and I found this one so I was really happy, I could not NOT order it! I hope it doesn’t take long to get it home, they say it takes 6-8 weeks 🙂

The second one is the sweet Iplehouse KID Irene. I have been admiring the Iplehouse KID dolls for a while now and I have always loved Irene but I never had a reason to get one myself. I suddenly had an epiphany last week that she would actually be perfect for a character from Edenia. It’s not like it is a main character but she is a special one for me and she has a clear story in my mind so I thought it would be good to have her in doll form. Also I couldn’t resist Irene’s cuteness any longer and this was the perfect excuse to get her… so she is on layaway now in Peach Skin (I miss their PS resin) and with the type C face-up (in the picture), along with some clothes, shoes, a wig and eyes (as if it were a fullset) taking advantage of Iple’s current discounts 🙂 It will take long but I can’t wait for her to be home!

And finally the most unexpected and surprising of all my purchases: She is a Volks DWC#2 head and was for sale in the MP on DoA and I couldn’t resist! She is soooo amazing! OMG I can’t believe I actually got this beauty!
I had been wanting a Volks Doll for such a long time, especially after I met WennieBJD’s Bailey in person! I hope to make an hybrid out of this girl but since she was completely unplanned I don’t know what I am going to do or who she will be. Any suggestions for nice bodies for Volks SD hybrids? I know the Feeple60 body works really well and maybe the MaskatDoll Body or the AprilStory body… any other options?
