LDoll and the Big Surprise!

Hey there everyone!!!

I am sorry I have been posting so few lately, I have been busy and it is hard to keep up with everything!

As you may know, I recently went to LDoll 2014, the BJD convention that happens every year in Lyon, and for me it became a “must” in the BJD hobby. This year was so amazing, I had such a wonderful time and I even had a really special Surprise! I got to see some of my Italian doll friends again, that I didn’t see since I came to Germany, and I also got to meet Wendy (WennieBJD) again. Floriana (HarajukuDolls) was there and she had an amazing Stand and also another couple of friends of mine had a Stand with some awesome stuff, called the Dark Wood (they are really worth checking out, they make clothes, props and furniture for BJD).

As usual I participated in the LDoll lottery (not expecting to win anything like the previous years), and guess what? I WON FIRST PRIZE!!! Soom was the guest of honor this year so first prize was an amazing limited one of a kind Soom Amber!

Here is a picture of her (you can find more on my Flickr):

I won first prize in the LDoll lottery!

She is also a fullset with the default face-up and complete body blushing and complete fantasy parts! I was soooo over the moon and overwhelmed with her, she was so unexpected and she is so huge and heavy and delicate at the same time! But she is also so impressive and beautiful! For now she is still nameless, but I have a concept for her already, she is going to be a Moon Goddess. I hope to let you know more abou her soon 🙂

I also bought another doll: Her name is Anastasia, Anja for short, and she is a Dollmore Alex Doll Alexia LE10 Daudet’s Star (Fullset), and I totally fell in love with her vintage doll look!

Meet Anastasia <3

News, updates, LDoll and new dolls :)

Hello everyone! Long time no see! I know I have been quite away in the last weeks, but I was totally busy for various reasons, and I am having close to zero “dolly time” lately! So here is finally some explaining and some news:

I have been two weeks in vacation in Portugal at the end of July and before that I simply was so stressed and exhausted I simply had no strength for dolls or blogging. The last week before I went there was really busy and I had so little time to prepare everything, that I ended up not even bringing any of my dolls with me. The truth is that I probably wouldn’t have had much time for them while I was there anyways but I will never know. The vacation was great by the way: I really needed a break and I finally had time to relax and be with my family and friends (which has been hard since I am leaving in Germany). Now I am ready for the next phase! Obviously when I came back I had some stress and new organizing again, so the time for dolls is still just a few, however I also have some awesome news: I got a job from the beginning of October, which means I will be staying in Germany for now, and I will finally be able to bring my dolls here sometime in the next months!!! Finally I will have them all again and maybe I will even find the inspiration (and time!) to post some Youtube videos again! Obviously I will have a lot to do in the next months other than that, including finding a new house and moving in (for now I had a provisory place only), so the dolls will have to wait a while but I can’t wait to bring them with me. I will let you know more when there are some other news 😉

LDoll! I'll be there!

In other awesome news, I will be going to LDoll 5 this year too!!! I waited a while before booking (since I didn’t know how it would go with my internship and whether I would be working in October) but finally I got the confirmation I can go and I am really excited! LDoll has become an obligatory event on my calendar since the first time I went and this year it is probably going to be more exciting, because so many people I know are coming too (obviously apart from all the awesome doll companies: SOOM, OMG!). I think it is going to be absolutely awesome!!!

As for dolls, I am currently still waiting on my CeriseDolls Millie Choupie in Tan Skin, that should be arriving this month, or maybe in September (hopefully)! I can’t wait to have her: I have so many awesome ideas for her character and I commissioned a really cool outfit from the amazing Floriana from HarajukuDolls, which is super exciting!!! And there is also another new face coming (literally!): I just got a Minifee Nanuri 2014 faceplate of the DoA Marketplace! I really don’t need a new Minifee at the moment, but I couldn’t resist. I have been resisting all this time since they released her and I just kept coming back and every time I saw her for sale I would just have to convince myself not to buy her…which was getting quite stressful! So I decided not to go against it anymore and just get her already! She will be sharing a body for now, until I decide what to do with her and get the funds to buy her a body of her own J I currently have no character for her though… I have some characters of mine that I think could work, but I am not sure yet, so I will wait for her to tell me herself, if she is one of those or someone new. She should ship this week so she will be at home soon!

Here is a picture from her previous owner:

New face on the way!

Lastly, I am really excited that I am having a Doll Meeting this weekend, for now I will keep all details for myself, but I will try to make a post about it after. I am really looking forward to a dolly filled day in good company after such stressful weeks! Can’t wait!!! Sorry for the huge post but there were so many exciting news to share! I will keep you posted!
