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!”
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.
Why do my Pukifee boxes all say Puki Puki?
Hello and welcome!
I’m starting this blog to document my journey through the incredibly vast world of tiny asian ball jointed dolls and hope you will enjoy discovering all the amazing dollies with me.
