Izzy has her hand again…and a new wig!!!

Just a quick post with some good news!

Izzy has her hand again...and a new wig!!!

Izzy was lucky this week, her wrist part came from Fairyland and she finally has her hand again 😀 And she was also spoiled, she got a new wig from Luts, and I love it on her!!! This girl has been a journey and a challenge to find a final look for but I think this might be it!!! Finally ❤

Sorry for the dark pic, but the light has been awful for pics lately, raining all the time…


Happy holidays!

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 🙂

Happy Holidays!

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 🙂

Happy Holidays!

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!!!


Concepts, impatience and solving problems…hopefully!

While waiting on my girls that went of for face-ups (I am so excited about them and I am getting sooo impatient it’s taking quite longer than I expected…:( ) , I am getting to the planning of concepts for the new dolls . They already existed as characters but I guess I never gave much thought about exactly how they looked so I decided to do a little Dream Selfy concept.
I am not going to develop much about them for now, because then I also like to confirm that the doll really works for what I had in mind, but I will give a basic description just to explain the picture.
Meet Penelope [Fairyland Feeple60 Chloe NS] and Ophelia [Luts Delf Arwen Light Tan]:

Ophelia and Penelope

Ophelia does not live in our dimension, however in her “steampunk-ish” world there is an secret organisation dedicated to travelling through dimensions, and she comes across it through her father (more about that lately as it is a complicated story), and that is how she comes to this dimension where she meets Penelope (that used to be the name of another doll I have, but it was also her original name and since I sold the other doll she keeps it!), who is actually a witch, but not a very well trained one (long story there too). Later they find out that their destinies are actually connected, and that is how the story goes on. Sorry if this is confusing but I don’t want to reveal much already and I am still working on this story 🙂

OTHER NEWS: For those who read my previous post or follow me on Flickr, I hopefully am in the process of solving Izzy’s problem (my Littlefee Rachel who broke her hand connector piece). First I want to thank you everyone so much for all the suggestions and sweet comments 🙂 Fairyland just told me to go through the dealer this time…c’mon!!! When the problem with Eliza’s arm happened they said I should go through them and not the dealer…now they say to go through the dealer…I don’t know what they think anymore! Maybe they are so busy they want to handle the less possible???? Well at least it seems like they will handle it through the dealer, which means I will have my substitute part: I am just waiting for confirmation from Wind Dolls. I have to say Stéphanie from Wind Dolls was really sweet and replied really fast to my e-mails and told me not to worry that she will handle everything and I will have my new part!! Hopefully it won’t take 2-3 months like Eliza’s arm though…

Hopefully I will get both my girls and the hand connector piece soon! Even if I won’t have much dolly time until December… 😦


New doll plans! Part 2/2

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/


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 😉


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!
