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 ^.^

The New Girls

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?
