Guess who joined my dolly family recently…
My dollhouse has undergone quite a few updates since I first posted about it. It was still a work in progress then and while it’s not completely finished yet, it’s much closer to be done now!
I recently became worried that having my dolls exposed to the light all day would make them yellow quite quickly so instead of a perspex window that I had originally planned for the front of my dollhouse I went with a solid plywood door. I had wanted to attach the door with magnets but the strip magnets I bought were so horribly weak we had to settle for velcro instead. Basically the entire front comes off using the little handles but while attached it keeps majority of the light and dust out of the dollhouse. Continue reading
My tan pukifee girls actually arrived two weeks ago but since they showed up here on the same day as AQ16 Winnie they have been a little bit neglected – blog wise!
I was originally really surprised by the colour of the Fairyland tan resin, especially compared to the Lati tan and the AQ tan – it is much darker and has a very slight grey cast to it. I’d always been in love with the Fairyland tan in photos so was slightly disappointed by their appearance in real life. This made it especially difficult to bond with and develop looks for the new girls.
I think the general consensus in the BJD world is that Fairyland dolls have some of the best posable bodies on the market. They seem to have more joints and be more flexible than a lot of other companies.
The only Fairyland dolls that I own so far are my Pukifees – what was only going to be Luna (the very first Pukifee I ordered who is probably still about 3 months away) has turned into a whole family of these little guys and I’m definitely looking to add a Tan Vanilla, Tan Flora and possibly Natural Skin Flora to my collection.
Anyway this is all off the topic!
