Apologises for the lack of posts lately! I have been sick and then completely unmotivated which is definitely not a great combination.
During this period I had a few arrivals – my PukiPuki PongPong and Niko as well as Tiny Delf Alice. I’ll post about Alice shortly but first let me introduce you to…
Bliss (PongPong) and Peony (Niko)
I literally googled ‘upbeat happy girls name’ for PongPong. Totally creative hey!
Puki Group Shot!
As you can see Bliss has had a few wig changes already – Puki wigs are difficult to find! Besides the amazing mohair wigs that were handmade for me I also bought a few Puki wigs from DDE with my order.
I purchased 2 x Fairyland Puki wigs (the brown one with a fringe in the photo above and the blonde pigtail bun in the first photo) and a size 3 leekeworld wig. All three cost a fortune for what they are and all three are terrible. The Leeke wig doesn’t come close to fitting even with a silicone wig cap, there is no elastic so the wig just ‘floats’ on the dolls head. The brown Fairyland one fits perfectly but is terrible quality, the fringe has a permanent bend in it about half way down just from sitting against the edge of the wig cap – I have tried to boil this out and I think it made it worse – the top of the wig is also not natural and rounded, instead it’s a little square again because the wig cap is just bad. The blonde Fairyland wig while ADORABLE is the biggest one yet, it doesn’t even come close to fitting – Bliss is currently hot glued to her wig. TERRIBLE.
Anyway enough complaining about the wigs (for now anyway!)
In other news Lucy got some new eyes! I really like Glib acrylics for all my Fairyland dolls – they are very very reasonably priced and I think they have amazing realistic pupil patterns.
So my love affair with Pukis continues even though I have discovered they are not so easy to pose and balance when they don’t have a sheet of metal underneath them (or when the fake grass you use is too thick for the magnetism to work). There’s definitely more Puki purchases in the future since they are so tiny I can squeeze them into any corner of the dollhouse!
Also everyone needs a Pong in their life –
One more happy Bliss pic for the road 🙂
As you know my Pukis actually arrived late last week and have been sitting in their boxes waiting for their clothes and wigs to arrive. I hadn’t actually organised anything at all prior to their arrival so thankfully a lovely friend came to my rescue and sent me some items that she made for my girls!
My little satchel arrived yesterday (yay for friends in the same country as you!) and everything was just AMAZING! I spent so long playing with it all I didn’t actually get a chance to take any proper photos until today.
First up is my tan Puki Lily who looked like a ‘Bee’ to me:
I can’t get over how adorable she is, I love her little pout and her faceup is perfect once her angry little eyebrows are covered up. I need to seriously start thinking about getting a NS Lily too…
My tan Puki Ante – Lucy – also got in on the action:
She looks amazing as a blonde but you will have to excuse her crazy evil soulless demon eyes. She actually has light green acrylics in (she came with the most hideous pink eyes!) but they are obviously not catching any of the light at all…either that or she is actually evil.
So let us talk about these amazing outfits – I love me a good fairy dress and these are the cutest little fairy dresses! I love how easily they are to get on and off and the best thing of course, is how adorable they look on! I also have matching dresses in pastel pink and pastel blue for my incoming Pukis – I hope they get here soon.
We can’t forget about the gorgeous wigs too! She made me four wigs in various colours and I love how they are not ultra poofy like most mohair wigs, I don’t think the tiny Puki heads can take all that hair really. As you can see the wigs fit my girls perfectly and they work so well, I actually put Lucy’s head (with wig on) inside a baby sock overnight to get a slightly sleeker look and it turned out exactly how I wanted it to.
If you are reading this M!ndy – thank you thank you thank you! For making such awesome Puki wigs and outfits and doing it so fast after I messaged you for help!
Bee says “Dang right I look good!”
If you’ve read my previous post about my tan PKs (Fairyland PukiPuki) you will know that I just adore them! They may have even instantly became my favourite size although this is really hard to tell at this stage since they are all still completely bald and nude.
It is definitely killing me that my little guys are still hiding out in their boxes while they wait for everything to arrive but I do admit that Lily’s box lives next to my desk and she comes out for a little play every day. Right now she is sitting on my computer as I type this – so cute!
Anyway the point is – not only did Puki Niko sneak into my DDE cart but Puki PongPong may have as well…
I know, I know! I have some serious self control issues but I blame the exorbitant shipping costs to Australia, I am not paying 1/3 of the cost of the doll in shipping fees – instead I will add a second doll. HA! That will show them for charging so much for shipping >.> My logic here is somewhat flawed.
So this means I have somehow ended up with 4 PKs in a VERY short period of time! CRAZY. And I still want a Ruby and since I can’t stop admiring tan Lily’s face I assume a NS version of her will inevitably make her way home but then that is totally it…oh but Ante is super cute too and she would be amazing in NS and what if Fairyland have some sort of awesome unmissable event or release some new sculpts?
There is no end to this madness – and I love it!!!
I think I have a new love…
My Tan Puki’s arrived today and while I thought they would be cute I was not prepared for the complete amazing-ness that is super tiny BJDs. Firstly since all my Pukifees came in boxes that said ‘Puki Puki’ on them, I assumed Fairyland would use the same boxes for Pukis’ too but they don’t! They come in SUPER tiny boxes which I love since I am fast running out of room to store them all.
The girls themselves are just gorgeous – they are pretty much what I expected them to be size wise but I didn’t expect them to be as well proportioned as they are. Their faceups are amazingly delicate for their tiny size however they don’t come with eyelashes which, while understandable, is a little annoying. Ante just doesn’t look right without eyelashes – my one tiny gripe about these dolls!
Puki Ante and Puki Lily
These dolls have incredible posability! I thought my Pukifees were the champion posers but these little ones – just wow. I don’t know if it’s because of their size which makes them easier to handle or their lighter weight but for me, they are much easier to balance and pose.
Also it might have something to do with the fact they have no wig to put them off balance and no clothes to cover their joints…
That’s right – I am ashamed to admit that in all the excitement of my Puki’s shipping I forgot to actually order them any clothes…or wigs…or shoes. Although it might be for the best since I’m not sure I could handle too much cute at once! At least bald and naked they are not at the maximum cuteness that we all know they can achieve.
These Puki’s impressed me SO much in fact that I immediately disregarded my dolly buying ban and ordered a Puki Niko (in stock at DDE – WOOT!) who will hopefully arrive to join these girls soon. I might also need to add a few more Puki’s to my wishlist – a natural skin Lily, Pipi and Ruby I think.
Turns out you can never have enough tinies!
