New doll plans! Part 1/2

I have been a bit busy but as always with dolls in mind! 🙂

I have decided to do some changes to my collection,  getting a couple of dolls and to compensate letting go another couple… I am not very fond of selling but I cannot buy the new ones otherwise so they will have to go.

SOLD: Xagadoll 1/6 Lara (Mature tiny)+EXTRAS

She is currently ON LAYAWAY, in case it doesn’t come to a good end she will be available again in the beginning of December 🙂 Thank you!

Please contact me if interested in any of them:

This post was getting HUGE so I decided to split it in two parts, you can find the second one about the new dolls and the old ones here: https://dollwishes.wordpress.com/2013/10/18/new-doll-plans-part-22/

New eyes and other news

My order from Captured in Glass from DoA arrived and my girls got new eyes!!! I love their eyes: the quality is amazing and the price is really good (only 8.38$ a pair). Five out of my 13 dolls are currently wearing CiG eyes so I must love them, hehe 😀

Unfortunately this time I had a small issue with the order. I bought a pair of 6mm for Penny (my Xagadoll Lara) and they are of two different colours (the right eye is the actual colour I wanted, the other is much lighter and almost white), but I immediately contacted Lu and he was very undertanding about my complaint. He offered to send me a new pair soon for free, so I even made another order that will be coming together with it. The only problem is that since these orders come with Airmail from China they usually take a lifetime to arrive!!! Hopefully it will be faster than last time because it isn’t August anymore…and my little girl will have her eyes at last!

New eyes!

The search for Izzy’s perfect look continues! She also got some new eyes. I have too say they are pretty cute, although they are so much more blueish than I expected…in the pictures they seem like a turquoise-greenish tone. I guess they are not yet final but she will be keeping them for now 🙂

New eyes!

She got her temporary wig back for a second to do this picture, but since the new girl has been using it lately, it didn’t last long…:

Isabelle: Hey! Where did it go?
New girl: I’m sorry little girl, but I’m keeping the wig!

😀

As in other news:

I just wanted to add a couple of other news in the blog and in the dolly communities in general.

I had been planning to change the Doll Family page of the blog for quite a while now and I finally did it. I added an individual picture of every doll I own plus some profile info about them. I am planning (actually I have been for a long long time but I never got to it) to write the rest of the backstories at least for my characters in the photostories. They are actually a lot of fun to do so I hope to do them soon, but for now only George and Eliza have them.

I also added a photostory index of all my dolly stories, so that it is easier to find a specific story or go through them, you can find it in the Photostory page in the blog menu.

And finally I decided I am not using ipernity anymore. My subscription as a club member ended and I am not renovating it. I understood that most people keep using Flickr and I decided I will too, as I am managing to get used to their new system and that’s where the community is (I guess that’s the most important). I also understood that it is really hard to keep up with the two accounts in the end…I always forgot to upload stuff there. I will keep this account for now, at least to try to keep up with the few people who left Flickr for good. But there will be no updates or uploads!

Leaving for summer!

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 😀

The new girl!

My Xaga Doll Lara is finally back from the spa! She looks amazing with her new face-up by Shory from MakeupService ❤ It’s amazing what she did in such a tiny face!!! I have to say I adore her new looks, she looks so much better than before and her face-up has so much detail for the size!

The new girl

I am still getting to know her but my boyfriend suggested I name her Penelope, Penny for short, and I like it! Probably she will keep it 🙂
She urgently needs clothes, shoes and I am also planning a new wig and eye combo! But she will have to wait until after the summer, since I am leaving this weekend.

Lara’s sad story…

I got my Xagadoll Lara last Thursday, and I finally was able to post about her!

She is really pretty and so delicately small, I am not sure about her size though, I always thought it was really a perfect doll-size for me but for now it is weird to see a mature BJD so small, when I am used to Minifee. Hopefully it’s just a phase :S

However her arrival was not as smooth as expected. I bought this girl second hand from Flickr and she came with some extras: wig, eyes and tiny shoes; and she was supposed to have a face-up. But when I opened her I had a surprise: her face-up was kind of sticky and her right eyes completely smudged!!! I never seen something like this, when I touched it it just came off like it had just been painted. Weird O.o!

Here is what she looked like:

Obviously I was got really depressed and wrote to the girl who sold her to me to see what could be done and hoping to get a refund for the face-up so I could send her of to a new one…the girl said she painted the doll herself and that she was perfect when she packed her…the truth is I didn’t ask many photos or close-ups of the face-up before buying her; I trusted the seller, so I could not confirm wether or not she is saying the truth (Lesson Nr. 1: Always ask for detailed photos of the face-up when they are not provided…). So no refund for me…she told me I could send her the doll back and she would re-do her face-up, but with the shipping costs and the timings, I preferred to send her to another artist, Shory, who lives in Italy and whose work I simply adore. And the best part is she agreed to do her in until the end of this month, check her etsy shop out: MakeupService. Can’t wait to have her back!!! I am leaving for vacation on the beginning of August and I was hoping to take her with me, for some bonding and obviously because she is so “portable” being so small 🙂

I wiped her face-up and sent her out to the spa on Friday, so hopefully she will get there next Monday. Here she is dressed and with the wig that came with her, before leaving:

Lara arrived!
