I actually got off my butt this weekend and took some photos – yay!
First 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.
I 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!
Oh 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.
I 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!)
It 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’:
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.
My latest arrivals are actually the very first BJDs I ever ordered back in November last year! I had just decided to dive into the crazy world of tiny resin dolls and was trying to decide which Lati Yellow to buy when I realized that I couldn’t actually order any since the order period was closed.
The next best thing was a Pukifee so I took advantage of DDE’s awesome layway policy and ordered a Pukifee Luna – it was the Alice in Wonderland fullset that really caught my attention but since they were all sold out I just ordered a basic version of her. About a week later after browsing endless photographs of all the Pukifees I decided to add a Bonnie to my order as well (it just made sense since I would save so much on shipping and all…).
As you all know however between ordering these two girls and their eventual arrival a LOT of other dolls have turned up – waaaaay more than I had originally planned or even considered!
Anyway I am so happy to add these girls to my collection –
Amy – Pukifee Bonnie
Amy is named after one of my favourite redheads – Amy Adams
Persephone – Pukifee Luna
I thought the name Persephone would work nicely with her sister – Penelope (Pukifee Mio)
All the girls were being VERY stubborn today (they just wanted to fall over a lot) and the light was fading so more photos will have to wait!
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).
I 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 ^.^
Since her arrival yesterday, Avery has already had quite a few different looks. It’s really hard to settle on something when these little guys look good in everything!
You’ll have to excuse the iPhone photos >.<
She started with the blonde mohair wig that you saw in the intro post:
But she quickly moved onto a deep auburn fur wig that matched her eyebrows nicely:
I liked the darker colour on her because it’s not something you see on a lot on this sculpt, it also made her look a little like a Japanese anime character (this probably has more to do with her little sailor/school uniform dress).
She then stole Zoe’s pink mohair wig which gave her a more ‘woodland fairy’ look:
Thankfully Zoe got an amazing new wig today so she didn’t have to sit around bald while someone else ran around in her wig!
Not that Avery wore the pink for long since she ended up settling on the perfect blonde Monique Gold mohair wig that just arrived:
I say ‘perfect’ but lets see how long it actually ends up lasting since mum saw her and immediately said ‘that wig is too light for her’ and now I am having doubts!
So which look is your favourite?
P.S After inspecting her some more in the light I think she has more of a coral blush rather than peach, it does tend to tinge a bit orangey, but in a gorgeous way!
My latest little one arrived today and she is every bit as cute as I had hoped!
Introducing Avery – a NS Pukifee Flora!
She has a beautiful faceup which isn’t showing up that great in the photo – her cheeks have an adorable peachy flush but for some reason it’s coming up orange in the photos.
About 10 minutes after all the photos were taken I changed my mind about her wig and she is now a delightful brunette. Photos will probably have to wait until this weekend though! Summer is definitely coming to the end and the amount of light left when I get home isn’t quite enough for a photo shoot.
Pukifee Flora has been added to and taken off my wishlist since the beginning, while I loved her cute little faceup she’s a little more stylized and cartoony compared to my other girls and I was worried she wouldn’t fit in all that well. When I had the chance to pick her up second hand though I really couldn’t resist and I’m glad I didn’t try!
Funnily enough hubby thinks she’s kind of cute because it looks like she’s whistling
Like all the Pukifee girls, Avery is a delight to pose and photograph although even they are not that great at balancing on an uneven surface.
