Some updates and not much going on…

Hello everyone,

Long time no news… I know I promised that I would write more after Ldoll but I didn’t… I guess life got in the way, again. I also have been working on updated profiles for my dolls and profile photos, because I like to keep it up to date… so it’s not like I haven’t been doing anything here, it just takes a long time (it’s still work in progress at the moment). You can check what is already done under Dolls in the menu.

So I have been super busy for dolls lately and then I have been sick and feeling really drained sooo… not much time dedicated to dolls, videos or photos lately. Usually when I have a bit for myself I want to be with friends, my fiancé and my cats or I am so exhausted that I don’t feel like doing much. I also have been working on other things and enjoying other “simpler” hobbies and my dolls just stand there and look beautiful and keep me company but I am not doing much with them.

Also I haven’t bought much. I have been planing my honeymoon to Japan (!!!!) (I am getting married in June), so there aren’t  a lot of funds left for dolls. I have been paying my layaway on my MDR Zuri though, last payment will be this month so I hope she will be here soon 😀 *fingers crossed*

So… I guess I won’t be posting much soon, because I don’t see a lot of time and energy in the near future. Please check my Instagram (@doll_wishes) and YouTube for updates. When I do something I usually post there first. I hope it will be better soon.

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 😆

Long time no see… News and explanations!

Hello everyone!
No, I have not been kidnapped or left the hobby, I am still here! I know it’s been an eternity since I posted anything at all (almost 6 months). I have had moments where I thought about posting, but at first there was so much happening and no certainties, making me uncomfortable to make any announcement without knowing for sure what was going to happen. And after a while when everything seemed to be taking a direction, I still didn’t have time or energy to do a lot with dolls, there were to many other things to think about. I am really sorry for not keeping everyone here updated though… and that is the main reason why I decided to post today.

If you follow me on YouTube you probably know what has been happening (I kept posting some updates over there, even if not very often), but I will let you know really quickly why I disappeared from my blog. Basically, it started when in March my boyfriend (with whom I lived) had to move to a new city because of a job. Since we weren’t sure if it would just be temporary or not, we decided to give it some time before we took any decisions and therefore we started living apart in two different cities and seeing each other only on weekends. My job is really demanding currently and I get home exhausted during the week with close to no energy to dedicate to the hobby. And this situation obviously made me want to spend most of my free time (and also only possible doll time) with my boyfriend. Therefore I started doing doll-related things rarely and sporadically, and I basically reduced the time I dedicated to the doll communities. I make videos sometimes because, for me, they ended up being an easiest way to update my doll friends and followers on what is going on, since it is so much faster than writing. Don’t get me wrong, I still play with my dolls and plan stuff for them or make projects, but since I don’t have a lot of time it is not as “intense” as before.

The good news is that everything worked out for my boyfriend and I recently found a job close to him myself,  so I am going to be moving there in the middle of October, which is very soon! 🙂 We started moving and packing in August and unfortunately most of my dear dolls are currently in storage waiting for me to move definitely… this is sad but it is for a good cause and I am really excited about the changes going on! We will have a new apartment that will be much bigger than my current one, we will also have space dedicated to my dolls and maybe even a crafting and a photo space. YAY! I always wanted that! 😀 I also hope that this change will help me dedicate more time to the hobby, to my doll projects (I have so many pending for multiple reasons) and to the online community, because I miss you guys and I miss posting about my dolls!!!

If you follow me on Flickr or Youtube you probably know this already but there are also some updates in my collection!!! Exciting!!! 😀

First of all I got a new SD boy in the end! He got here last week and he is awesome!!! He is a Migidoll M-Style Yujin on the new BNB 16th Body ❤ He is currently naked just because I didn’t really prepare much for him and the stuff I got either didn’t work or didn’t fit. I will let you know soon – when he is finally dressed (probably after I move) more about him and his story. But he will be part of my SD story: The Travellers.

The other surprise, also for me since it was a completely impulse buy, is that I got a new SD doll that I have wanted for quite a while but never justified getting: a Supiadoll Rosy! I had this dream about a new character that could be part of Ophelia’s world and I was quite intrigued by her. When I found this doll on the DoA Marketplace I just had to get her for this character, she really spoke to me! So that happened and she got here last week. YAY! Like my new boy she is still lying around in improvised temporary looks since all my doll clothes and things are currently in storage… but I am so happy about them 😀

Here is a quick and dark cellphone picture of the two together (you find their BO’s on my Youtube channel):

Two new gorgeous arrivals this week!!! My Supiadoll Rosy and my first SD boy Migidoll Yujin! They look amazing despite the nakedness and not have their own eyes/wigs, and more surprising: they look so well together!!! I am tempted to change his character

I also got a new  Azone: Pureneemo Character Series Movie K-ON Hirasawa Yui and a Ruruko Doll: the Dreaming (YUMEMIRU) version (details and presentations in another future post)! Which is quite big since I have wanted a short-haired Azone and a Ruruko for sooooo long! You find their arrival videos on my Youtube channel if you like 🙂

And I guess those are the biggest news that happened lately! Hopefully I will let you know more soon, probably when I move and manage to move and organise stuff at home enough to take out the doll stuff. Meanwhile feel free to follow me on Youtube (I am wishes over there), I post videos over there most of the times I have updates, even if not as often as I would like to…

Have a wonderful end of the week and see you soon! ❤

Still here!

It has been quite a while since I posted anything and since I had any time for dolls… I am sorry that I haven’t been commenting much, I just wanted to let you know I keep following everyone’s pictures and videos.

As for news, I got my Minifee Nanuri 2014 head and I love her!!! However I didn’t even have time to take pictures of her I just cleaned her face-up off to send her to the face-up artist. I’ll have her and my little Lusine (Dust of Doll Meel) painted by the amazing Luna from La Coterie della Lune! I am super excited: can’t wait to have them back 😀

In other news Arya is looking quite different! First she got a new wig recently, that I haven’t showed yet. It’s a gorgeous Alpaca wig commission from KagamiDesign on Etsy (that I totally recommend). I had been wanting a wig like this for a while and finally Arya looks like herself. This is her natural hair, wavy and a bit “puffy”, however when she lived in Eden (before she run away) she used to wear it straight and longer, and her maids spent hours making it look “perfect”.

 Someone else's story...

Here she is also wearing my latest commission from HarajukuDolls, which is in reality Padma’s outfit (hence the title). But it was so gorgeous I couldn’t resist dressing Arya with it. I think she looks amazing, can’t wait to try it on Padma when I have her with me again…(hopefully in the beginning of October)! As usual I totally adore Flo’s work: she is so talented ❤ And she has been nominated the official seamstress of Edenia!!!

More pictures, because she is gorgeous:

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!
