Hard at Work

I actually got off my butt this weekend and took some photos – yay!

DSC05199 copyFirst up was my lovely Zoe – funny to think I was seriously considering selling her when she first arrived but after lots of trial and error with different looks she is one of my favourites now.

DSC05208 copyI thought I would give Sara a bit of a change up – I love her eyes and faceup but she sometimes is just a little too sad. This wig doesn’t really help make her any less sad but it’s cute and with the addition of the pink ribbon I’m calling it a win!

DSC05240 copyOh Pixie – she has slight wonk eye here, opps. I’m liking this auburn wig on her but I’m still not sure if it’s THE ONE.

DSC05254 copyI love my NS Flora but I keep seeing tan ones and they are to die for…maybe Avery needs a twin too (if Fairyland ever do another Tan Pukifee event!)

DSC05242 copyIt is surprisingly difficult to get two dolls to look in the same direction. Buttercup has spent her entire life here being a cute little redhead but sadly that seemed to clash with Pixie so she is now a strawberry blonde. Also somehow Pixie is taller than Buttercup – not sure how that works.

I plan on doing a BIIIIIIG group shot once all my Pukis have arrived and are dressed/wigged. Not really sure where I can take the photo so they all fit but that should be an interesting challenge.

I’m going to leave you with a quick ‘outtake’:

Please noooooo…

Hubby tried to feed Sara a cookie – as you can see from her face she REALLY didn’t want it…her expression KILLS me here.

The Stockpile

Have I mentioned before that I have somehow amassed a HUGE box of 5-6 size wigs and tiny glass eyes?

What you see on the girls themselves is only the tip of the iceberg. Oddly enough I don’t really have many spare outfits, maybe because I know in my mind exactly what I want but haven’t been able to find it so far. I want something totally frou frou and pink and lacey and frilly…but I don’t want to pay through the nose for it – a combination that is proving difficult to obtain!

So anyway I mentioned previously that Zoe got a new wig and I’ve been dying to show it off because I really do love it. It’s a Monique Gold Ginger wig that I ordered from Facets by Marcia who I cannot recommend enough. She charges a very reasonable international shipping rate which is almost impossible to come by these days! And she ships them out super fast once you pay (assuming she’s not away at a meet/convention).

DSC05069I buy the size 5-6 for my girls and they fit perfectly without a wig cap, with a silicone wig cap it’s a squeeze but will definitely still work.

All the Monique Gold wigs I’ve bought have been great, they have a beautiful range of colours and they seem to be consistently good quality however it’s really hard to tell how a wig will look on a Pukifee when they use ‘adult’ doll models. Anything with big soft waves and curls is a pretty safe bet though.

The hair on these wigs are beautifully soft and silky although as with all curly wigs you have a few fly-aways. Normally this would drive me insane but I love this wig so much I don’t even care! The wig cap is dark so there is always that chance of staining but since Zoe is a tan doll I am just going to worry about it when it happens.

While taking some photos of Zoe and her new ‘do I also took the opportunity to take some better photos of Avery:

She’s not quite so orange in real life I promise!

She is also wearing a Monique Gold wig – Somo – which is mohair and in a light blonde which appears to be sold out. This wig gets a little frizzy in such a tiny size but I still love it, it’s very low maintenance, you just kind of fluff it with your fingers.

Can you keep a secret?

I just had to share this photo because I am so happy with how it turned out! They look so adorable together ^.^

A pair of Sunnies…

I should quickly apologise for the lame pun in the title but I couldn’t resist.

The weather is still pretty overcast which means not much light in the house and it’s raining outside so I can’t take everything out there but I did get a few photos taken anyway.

Lati’s Town Circus of Bremen Sunny is easily one of my favorite sculpts (I think I have probably said this before…many times!) and when I got the opportunity to purchase a second I leapt at the chance.

I’ve introduced Annabelle previously but here she is with my original Sunny – Alice (the blonde one).

I haven’t decided whether Alice will go back to being a brunette as well- I think the light coloured wig suits her tawny eyes better. I really want to give her new eyelashes as well but I think I better leave one of my girls stock.

I think they make an interesting pair, there are some small differences that really stand out when they are placed next to each other, Alice seems to have fuller lips whereas Annabelle has slightly larger eyes (this is probably more to do with her darker eye colour and lashes).

The girls are so adorable together- I wonder how my basic Sunny will fit in!

Also I got a quick photo of Zoe in too before the light disappeared, I really do love the magnets that Fairyland imbed into their tiny feet:

I was reminded that Winnie doesn’t get enough attention so she got some new lashes and a new wig today 🙂
