Getting ready for LDoll 2016

Hello everyone,

Long time no post, I won’t even go into details… life! I have been participating in the BJD community using other platforms, for example Youtube and Instagram (@doll_wishes), so feel free to follow me there.

There are so many news, but that will be a topic for another time. I am currently getting ready for LDoll 2016 next weekend! Exciting! I am not sure but I would like to get a doll there…we will see! Kalea [my MerrydollRound Fang] is coming with me and I guess nobody else. I might add someone smaller to the mix too, but she is so much doll already so I don’t know if it is too much. Maybe Lusine [my DoD Meel], since she is little.

I also have been working on this blog and updating the looks and the character profiles. I really need to take some new pictures of some of my dolls! That’s on the to-do list for when I have some time 🙂

I will report something when I come back from LDoll, but I leave you with a photo of wonderful Kalea and how she looks now. I absolutely adore this girl!

This time here to stay…hopefully :S

Well… even though I said I would be active again here when things calmed down I kinda never did even if everything is (almost) settled now.

Let’s say it took longer than I thought to get things organised after the move and lately I have a hard time managing the dolly stuff and  free-time with real life stuff or other hobbies. So I haven’t been really active in general. But if you follow me on Youtube, Instagram (@doll_wishes) or Flickr I have posted some things here and there 🙂

But here I am to officially post and dedicate myself more to this blog. I plan to start posting more about my dolls here again. I also have to refurbish and update some of the pages about my dolls here, since my collection has changed a bit. I hope to do that soon.

So expect some news soon. I will probably make a couple of posts presenting my new dolls and characters soon. I also have been working a lot on my story “Edenia”, so I might post something on that too 🙂

And I will leave you with a bit of news: I am waiting for a new doll (since the beginning of January)!

I was stalking her ever since Merry Doll Round released the pre-order and I tried really hard to convince myself I don’t need another doll but I just had to! And I am so happy I did: or I am sure I would regret it forever 😀 She is a Merry Doll Round Fang in Cookie Skin!

I totally did this... I was stalking her ever since #merrydollround released this pre-order and I tried really hard to convince myself I don't need another doll but I just had to! And I am so happy I did: or I am sure I would regret it forever 😆

WE SUPPORT BJD ARTISTS AND SAY NO TO RECASTS!

My two artist dolls Lusine and Nymeria have decided to help me show our support to the wonderful BJD artists that created them and all the others.
I always have been against recasts but I chose not express myself a lot on this topic to avoid being part of the drama.
However on light of recent events, recasts have become a plague, they are destroying trust and mining the hobby with drama.
And WORST: they are also making BJD artists question their work and whether to continue creating these beautiful dolls that we can enjoy!
Please take today to think about the wonderful dolls and who created them, support the amazing artists and when you buy your next doll do NOT BUY RECASTS! Or you will be contributing to destroy the hobby we love!

End of internet silence!

I'm back!

Hi everyone! Greetings from Germany! I just wanted to let everybody know it is the end of my internet silence! I have been away for almost a month because as you might know I recently changed home and country, and only now did I manage to have internet access at home! Finally!
I won’t probably be posting as much as before, I only bought a few dolls with me and a few dolly things, but hopefully I will have time to take some pictures and also follow your posts and dolls!!!
I will post more updates soon and also respond to everyone’s e-mails and messages (I am really sorry for the lack of answers). Anyways, I have a lot to catch up, but I am glad to be back: I really missed the dolly community 🙂

LDoll 4 Reportage :D

I came back from LDoll yesterday and it was awesome, so as usual I am writing a reportage 😀

This year I decided to go all weekend so I could enjoy both days of the Festival since I had time (unlike last year). I went by train again from Milan and I arrived Friday night, in the same hotel last year (Ibis Budget), very smooth trip and familiar places to start.

Saturday morning, I woke up early and I was excited for the first day of Festival, this time however I knew what I should expect so I went earlier to avoid big lines (last year I waited an hour to get in) and I was one of the first people to enter (I bought a presale obviously) 😀 I only bought a doll with me this year: Charlotte, my Minifee Ryeon, but she got a lot of attention 😉
I must say it is always an amazing feeling to see so many doll stuff, even if it was not exactly new to me but it is so unusual!!! Everything was totally awesome, there were so many gorgeous dolls: SWITCH, Another Space, Migidoll, Sadol, Dollmore and the european art dolls: dust of dolls, Lillicats, etc. and then all the amazing talented people selling stuff! When I got in I decided to shop, enjoying the fact that there weren’t many people yet. I had an idea of what I needed but I have to confess I ended up doing a lot of impulse shopping too ^^; I decided to get the most possible since you always save so much on shipping fees and it’s actually so much better to see what you buy in person! But I tried to convince myself I didn’t need a doll (even if it didn’t go as planned, more on that later) And probably there won’t be much money for dolls until Christmas hehehe but I am happy!!!
After shopping I went to meet with Floriana from HarajukuDolls, who had a stand there and it basically become my favorite spot on Ldoll! I spent a lot of time with her and we had a lot of fun together, meeting other people and enjoying the festival, a special thanks to you dear, it was a pleasure!!! And I also bought some beautiful dresses for my Narae, from her and she even gave me an amazing set as a gift 😀 (check her out, her style is amazing, pics soon!)
I also saw some faces from last year, like lovely Sanna from SweetNeat, and met some new people: it was awesome to meet everyone

On Sunday, I took everything easier, I did some shopping of little things I had missed the first day and then I went back to Floriana’s stand because we decided to have Charlotte model on her stand with her Ryeon, Bambi as twins. They are identical because they were both painted by Caroline from Viridian House (a total coincidence though), and it was fun to have “twin dolls” for once hehe 🙂

Then there was the “unexpected new BJD” story later… I had been adoring a little MSD girl Peanut from Another Space (when I learned they were coming I was drooling all over their MSD dolls) and she was there in fullset at a good price. I came by for a couple of times and asked about her and when Lee (we met one of the sculpters in person!) understood I wanted her but I was indecisive, he offered to include another set of clothes and he gave us (me and Floriana) extra freebies!!! I couldn’t resist the offer obviously! He was so nice, it was awesome to meet personally the person who sculpted the doll I bought: she became so very special ❤ And this is the story of how I brought home a new doll 🙂 I must say it is awesome to buy a doll and have her immediately, I have been wanting a less mature MSD doll for a while now and she is perfect: I have been planning of bringing my old character Émilie Mignon back (she used to be a Jerryberry Berry), but maybe with a slightly different name (more on her soon), and I am keeping her fullset look: I love her wig and clothes, I just changed the eyes for glass because they were acrylics 🙂

All in all, it was an awesome festival, I met amazing people and BJD professionals, I made friends and I saw and bought beautiful things (wish I had money to buy everything!!!). Thank you to all who participated!!! I love coming to Lyon and hopefully I will be there next year again ❤
