Meet Emi :)

Finally have time to do Emi’s presentation! I have been busy with my thesis lately… 1 month to go and I will present it, so it’s the most stressful part!

I don’t know if anyone remembers her (she used to be a JerryBerry Berry, but for a short time),I decided to re-shell her keeping her backstory with some minor changes.

Here is a small introduction: Emi’s complete name is Émilie Marie Mignon and she is 14. She is French, born is Paris, but she is currently living in Milan, Italy (she has italian grandparents on her mother side). She is quiet and calm, and very positive about life (and maybe a bit naive). She loves pink and pastel colours. She is also a dreamer, dreams of traveling the world and being an artist to spend her life doing beautiful things ❤

I am loving this girl: like you probably already know, I bought her at this year’s LDoll Festival, she is a Another Space 43cm Peanut in NS, and she came with a fullset and an extra outfit+shoes (which was pretty cool!). I kept most of her fullset look, since I love her default wig on her! I just changed her eyes to CiG glass eyes (she came with dark brown acrylics that were too dark). I love her sweet and intelligent smile and how delicate she is! I know these dolls are not very famous, but I totally recommend them. Feel free to check this post I made about her body in case you are curious: https://dollwishes.wordpress.com/2013/10/09/another-space-43cm-body/

IN OTHER NEWS:

As I managed to sell my Pukifee Luna (Xagadoll Lara is still for sale, check her here) at a good price I manage to put my new JID Owen on layaway!!! YEY! He will be real skin and with the default B face-up!

I am so happy! I currently have 2 dolls on layaway that I am totally excited about!!! I have been developing my Arwen’s character a lot and looking for clothing for her, she will be kind of romantic and “steampunk-ish”, so it hasn’t been quite easy but I managed to find some stuff and already bought an amazing dress from Lelahel for her! I have been eyeing some Dollheart stuff too…hehe.

My JID guy will be part of my Narae’s story (their names will be revealed soon), so he will have a pretty unique style as they live in a completely different world from ours (mixed between vintage/steampunk and dark). I saw some stuff over at Iple that I love for him but I need to search a bit more what fits these handsome men! I am planning on doing some moodboards for their style, if I have time 🙂

With all these new dolls and plans I am kind of feeling overwhelmed by the old ones…sometimes I get the feeling I have too many dolls to give them the attention they deserve. I don’t want to sell anyone else though, especially not the characters from my stories, so I decided that I will buy new dolls only if they have a strong purpose from now on, that are an important part of one of the current stories or that have a special meaning to me. This way I avoid the frustration feeling like I “cannot” sell them, even if they don’t get a lot of attention (it’s hard to explain, hopefully you get what I mean). I could just say I won’t buy more dolls, but you all know how that ends… 😀

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!

Here is my link on Flickr if you want to continue following my pictures and updates: www.flickr.com/photos/w_i_s_h_e_s

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 😀

Family Album

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):

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.
