Before BJDs.

As I say in my profile I always loved dolls. And that love have expressed itself in different ways over the years. Among other things I have played The Sims and later The Sims 2 a lot. And I have also made pixel dolls for some years. Like thise!

I guess it's kind of obvious that I like fairies. LOL

Not much news about my BJDs. I have decided to not do the face-up on my SoulKid Apple myself and are making arrangements to have the head send directly from ThinkPink to an artist.

New clothing.

Today I got two outfits for Krusemynte and Pipaluk. They were made by the wonderful Dambuster at DOA. (The link only works if you're a member at DOA and have Marketplace access.)

Anyway I'm really really happy with the outfits. They are so cute and so well made.

Take a look:

Here they are wearing their hoodies. Please excuse Pipaluk not having the right wig or a face-up yet.

And then one without the hoodies on top of the dresses:

I really need to start thinking about clothes for Tjalfe for when he gets his body. Right after giving him and Pipaluk and Kristoffer a face-up. Having dolls is so much hard work! LOL

Finally here.

I finally got the two Custom House dolls I had been waiting for since December 31st!

I wasn't sure how I'd feel about them after waiting for so long and being so frustrated but of course I fell in love with them.

Picking them up wasn't without problems though. First of all Custom House hadn't marked them down like they usually do so I had to pay 150$ in tax and customs! I think it's completely unfair for a 377$ parcel!

This ment I had to go to the post office to pick the up - and pay ransome to get them. I'm disabled and and can only walk very little and it hurts to stand and wait so I have this eletrical 3 wheeled moped thingy. So off I want the 3½km to the post office - and just as I was in the middle of the door my moped broke down. Sob!

I managed to get my parcel but then had to sit an hour and wait for help. All this also ment that my moped had to go away to get fixed and they didn't have another one I could borrow so it's quite a big problem for me. I can't go out at all without something to drive on. I was told today though that it can't be fixed but I'll get a new one - wich could take a while.

I was heartbroken about it but now I know I'll get a new one - even if it's going to be really really hard waiting for it. I just hope they'll be fast.

So for several days I didn't feel happy about getting my dolls at all. They still managed to creep into my heart some way though.

Here's Kristoffer. He's 12 years old. He often seems very mischievous but he's actually a really sweet guy. He just have such a warm heart.

And here he is with Ilvara (DZ Feilian to the left) and Veronice. (Tanned Narae with Narin face-plate)

This is Pipaluk his little sister. She's 7 years old and she's very good at looking sweet and innocent but she's not that sweet at all. Most of all she's selfish and good at manipulating people. I had bought two 6/7 wigs for her but they were both too small - wich is wierd because Kristoffer's wig is the same size. So I had to give her a temporary one.

Here's Pipaluk with their smalles sister. Her name is Krusemynte and she's 5 years old. I have had her for a while. (She's the reason I wanted more Custom House dolls.) She's a very sweet girl. She's also very naive and believe everything she's told. She mostly speak in questions.

Kristoffer is a Custom House Little Junior Icarus, Pipaluk is a Petite Ai Gabriel and Krusemynte is a Ange Ai Uri. I have to say though that I would never ever get another Custom House doll. Not only because of the long and frustrating wait but also I'm not so pleased with the quallety of the tow last dolls. Kristoffer is fairly okay even though he doesn't feel so nice as Krusemynte but Pipaluk is NOT worth the money at all. Not only does the Petite Ais not pose nearly as well as Ange Ais even though the are much much more expensive but there's something wrong with her legs and knees. Take a look at a picture of the knees.

I have to say that if I had know about these issues I would never have ordered from Custom House at all.

On a brighter side I have ordered a PukiFee! I'm so happy and excited. I ordered a Shiwoo Boris fullset. I can't wait to get it. *Does a happy dance.*

New wig

Today I got a wig - custom colour from Tinybear I asked for a dark green wich is kind of difficult to make. She made it as dark as she could and the colour is absolutely PERFECT. Very very beautiful.

It's for my LittleFee Shiwoo Elf Tjalfe who is still only a face-plate. On Thursday I'm paying for his body in a split and the order will go out to Fairyland not long after that.

Speaking of Tjalf I have cleaned off my first try of a face-up and he's ready for me to try again. :o) It probably won't be until after the weekend though.
