Finally I had the time to do a couple of holidays pictures with my dollies. This year is the first Christmas in the new house and we are going to Portugal for Christmas to spend it with the family, so I decided not to buy a big tree but just a tiny one and some other simple decorations just to give the house a touch of Christmas (I love Christmas, it is my favorite holiday!!!). Turns out it is the perfect size for my dolls so I thought it would be cute to create a scene out of it with the whole family, even those out of the story joined. Everyone helped out decorating the tree and afterwards we took a family pic with everyone together 🙂
The little girls decided to help with the decorations: Iris took care of the bows, Evie and Izzy were in charge of the rest of the decorations and Serena helped them out to reach the highest places. Also Charlotte together with Bee and Emi helped with the ornaments. Little Vanilla helped arrange Santa on the top of the tree and put his light in place.
George decided to play Santa himself and bring the presents to place under the tree and Eliza baked some cookies to welcome the real Santa while the others worked. Pandora was really excited about the cookies, and she wanted to eat them herself since she loves sweets (it is her first Christmas with the humans so she didn’t understand what they were for). Arya was quite confused about the whole thing too (since in her world there is not such thing as Christmas or Christmas trees) she spent the whole time wondering what the whole thing was about. Finally Alice, being a photography enthusiast, took care of the pictures to create some memories 🙂
When the tree was ready Alice set the timer and the whole family took a picture together with it. Pandora was lucky to get a cookie, because Eliza felt sorry for her and Santa eats too many cookies anyway!
I am not sure how much time I will have for other pictures and posts before Christmas, maybe I will post something else but I’m not sure, so me and my dolly family would like to wish you all Happy Holidays: a merry Christmas full of love and presents and a wonderful new year full of wonderful surprises and dolly goodness!!!
The previous post was getting HUGE so I decided to split it in two parts, you can find the first one about the dolls I am letting go here: https://dollwishes.wordpress.com/2013/10/18/new-doll-plans/
THE NEW DOLLS:
I have been lurking over the Luts Delf Arwen for a while now and after looking at her first owner pics I felt I had to get one! So she will be my Christmas present hehe! I totally put her on Layaway today: she will be in light tan and will come with a face up! Luts has amazing default face-ups lately ❤

I am just a bit nervous because I find that SD is not really the perfect size for me, however I wanted to give her a chance, not only because she has this amazing beautiful tan (<3) but also because maybe I feel more frustrated with SD because I have such a hard time finding stuff for my Serena (Iplehouse Bianca). If I like having her I am planning maybe getting also an SD boy (YES a boy) because in her story she is in a couple. Let’s see! Still a long wait to go!
Another doll I am adding to the wishlist is another boy! (Another boy??? OMG what is happening to me :P)
I am considering buying a JID Male, probably an Owen (maybe a Boris) because I have been wanting a partner for my Narae, since in her story there is a very important male character and later they become a couple. I would love a great realist (to fit her style) real skin Iple guy for her!!! Lets see how this plan goes…
Small doll news:
Finally I found Izzy’s default eyes!!! YEY!
Now just the wig is left…anyway, I am kind of linking her look more even with this wig!
This time they are from Leeke.
Here are some pictures of the little girls wearing some new clothes and stuff from LDoll, plus the new eyes 🙂
By the way, since we are talking about eyes, check out the new site for Captured in Glass, it looks awesome! I totally recommend Lu’s products 😉
I am really happy that I am finally leaving and going back to Lisbon this Sunday!!! I haven’t been in Portugal since Christmas and I don’t see my family for 8 months!!! It’s the longest I have been away from them in my entire life and I hope it won’t happen ever again…this year was a busy year, being the last one of my Master and I needed to organise a lot of stuff and I ended up not having a lot of vacation.
I have been very active in the BJD community this last weeks because I have been in more free but in September work starts again. However, I hope I manage to keep up with dolls and I want to try and post at least once a week. Let’s see how this plan goes 😉
To say goodbye to everyone I decided to take yet another family picture, this time with the WHOLE family (even the size misfits) because at least for now it is complete 😀
I love all of them and I am happy with my new arrival Penelope ❤ I am quite happy with the group right now too, I might add a new MSD soon but let's see how things go, at the moment these are my babies (from left to right):

It is quite usual to read comments in the BJD community about the reaction of partners, boyfriends, husbands and so on to dolls. Mostly about someone’s doubts if they will accept the fact that you like dolls, about how the other people are afraid of them or, if you are lucky, maybe even saying that you managed to bring your other half into the dark side and convinced them buy their first doll.
Because of all the discussion about this topic I thought it was interesting the share the following post.
I live together with my boyfriend for 6 months now, but he knew that I liked dolls already when we moved in together. He was always very accepting of them, even if he never showed any particular interest, we were always able to talk about them and he would look the new pictures I took. Before I used to play with my dolls when he wasn’t around, on my alone time, however since we live in the same house I must play with dolls when he’s around, obviously! I ended up feeling kind of uncomfortable because he would try to keep a distance when I played as it was “my thing” and not “his thing”. So I decided to change that and proposed that we could play together once, just so that dolls would not be this weird thing anymore and he could become more comfortable with them. Even if he wasn’t that excited about the idea he accepted the challenge.
Basically I showed him and presented all my dolls with their names, and then told him to choose his favorite dolls so we could make a photoshoot. Since he is interested in photography he was quite happy about the idea of photographing them. He chose Bee (my LTF Ante) and Iris (my PKF Bonnie), because according to him they are the cutest and here is the result of our “photostory” moment:
I have to say it was actually fun, and even if I don’t see him playing often, at least now it’s not “weird” anymore as he got a feel of what it means to “play” with them 😀
What about you? Any similar stories to tell? I would love to read any similar stories or dolls-boyfriend/husband reaction stories ❤
Extra pictures, because they are adorable:
I have been having a hard time finding inspirations in general and that reflected on my dolly hobby… I was kinda distracted from dolls for a couple of weeks but lately they have given me some good feeling again.
I had a Littlefee drama while having this small dolly crisis…it seemed to me that I never choose them to play, I almost “force” myself to take them out because I don’t photograph them for a long time…which is weird!
So I decided to change it and have a look at my girls with different eyes: they certainly need a closet renewal, they are my oldest dolls and so they have a lot of stuff that doesn’t fit my style anymore, and they don’t have many clothes they actually wear (hence the closet cleanout ;))… so that’s decided!
But still something was not working, I ADORE Beatrice (my Ante) she is my oldest doll and a grail doll, she is amazing and adorable and I could never let her go! But Isabelle (Rachel), I have had my doubts and lately I am just not feeling the connection. I bought her a bunch of wigs but none seem to work for long. I tried her wig on Bee and it is adorable so maybe all they need is a complete makeover! A character remake (maybe I am stuck in what their characters should look like…)
I put Rachel as a feeler for adoption. I am considering getting a new sculpt for her (maybe Chloe or Leah) or maybe selling her completely (do I need 2 Littlefee, when they are probably not my favorite size?). But I also bought some new eyes and wig for her to give her a last chance. I decided I will see how I feel about her new looks and then see if I let her go or she if she stays. The new stuff should get here in the next weeks! In the meanwhile Bee is keeping her new looks 😉
In other news:
A new girl is on her way!!!

It has been a while since I wanted a 27cm mature tiny and I came across this girl selling her Xaga Doll Lara so I couldn’t resist! She is coming home and should be here in the next weeks, can’t wait!!! She is amazing <3<3
Anyone knows any good quality clothing shops/etsy shops that make clothes for Momoko/Blythe or this type of girl? I need to get her some stuff 🙂
