BJD Challenge Day 15

What do your family think of your dolls?

I don't have much family. Or at least I don't have much contact with most of the family I have - except my son. He thinks it's cool that I have something I'm interrested in and love but is not really interrested beyond that. He does listen patiently if I tell him about my dolls and he was slightly interrested in Desmo being a vampire. (He likes vampires. LOL) I don't tell him a lot about them though. Don't want to strecth his patience too far. LOL

BJD Challenge Day 14

Have you ever had a floating head? What about a headless body? (What do you think you would do if you had either?)

Yup! I have two extra LittleFee faceplates that have their own eyes/wigs/personalleties/names and they count as heads, don't they?

I also have a Custom House Junior Ai Spia head. She has a face-up by Xhanthi and is called Rosala. And I have a MNF Lishe WS head that have eyes and I know I want her to have a pink wig but she needs a new face-up. I don't have any headless bodies. The only one I ever had was the old body my Lati Blue Censya had before she got a DollZone body. And I sold it soon after my Censys Linnea got her new body.

As for the LittleFees they are three sharing the same body and I'm not completely sure I'll ever get two more bodies. The ones sharing is Penny, Shilling and Secret. Secret still doesn't have a face-up though.

I plan to eventually get a body for both Rosala and my Lishe - DollZone both of them.

I also have three MNF sleeping heads that I hope to some day have modded open and given face-ups and stuff but I really don't count them and they are just in a box. They are no in any way "persons" yet.

BJD Challenge Day 13

Dollie shoes! Show us how many you have!

Okay you asked for it. I just hope everyone is sitting down.

This is not counting the ones they are all wearing at the moment. I am sane - really I am!

BJD Challenge Day 12

What do your friends think of your dolls/dolls in general?

First of all: Yes it's right there never was a day 11 question so it's not because I have messed up I haven't posted one. LOL

My friends have somewhat different reactions to my dolls. There's my friend who first brainwashed me into getting my first one and the friend I brainwa . . . ehhh inspired into getting one. Then there's one that just ignores them and some that think they are pretty but are not interrested beyond that. I also have a friend who finds it a little funny that I collect dolls. She thinks it's wierd in a sweet way. Basically I don't think I'd be close friends with anyone who were not tolerant and open enough to accept my dolls. I tend to not like narrowminded people that much. (And they tend to not like me that much either. LOL)


I love pacages

Today the mailman brought me a pacage from my wonderful friend Annefia. It was a box full of sweet and wonderful things. There were two PukiFee dresses and two tops for my PukiFee mermaid Mims that she crocheted herself, some cute little buttons, a set of jewellery, a seashell big enough for Mims to sit in and some other bits and pieces. My mood went up at least 10 points because og it. LOL I promise to take some pictures later.

You know it's wonderful to get a sweet and caring pacage like that but the love behind the pacage means even more than the pacage itself. It makes me feel loved.

BJD Challenge Day 10

Post a picture of a doll and an animal!

Since I don't have any live animals I can photograph with a doll I hope this will do. My hamster with his hamster. LOL

Quark (PKF Hamster boy) has named his hamster Booh! That way he can hide behind doors or sneak up behind people and shout BOOH! - and then claim that he was just calling for his hamster.

BJD Challenge Day 9

What is your least favourite size?

25 - 30cm adults like Barbie size. I think Amaryllis my Soom Mini Gem Uyoo elf is a lovely doll but the size is just not for me. She is beautiful though. See?

Also SDs are just too big for me and anything smaller than a PukiFee is just too small.


Sunday, November 13, 2011

BJD Challenge Day 8

What is your favourite size?

That's a really hard question. I mean I can't really say because I love all the sizes I have MSD - 25 - 30cm kids like LittleFee and 16cm PukiFees. I don't like one of them more than the others.

However when I talk about 25 - 30cm kids like LittleFees I don't want them mixed up with 1/6 dolls that are adults and more or less Barbie size. They are very different from the kids.


Saturday, November 12, 2011

BJD Challenge Day 7

Smallest size you own? (Have held/seen/like)

I have two Real Pukis but they are actually too small for me. I can't really do anything with them so they are just standing around looking cute. I do tend to go awwwww over the very small dolls (Like Squee 6cm) - I used to love small things, the smalle the better - but I can't really handle anything smaller than a PukiFee. (16cm)

When I was little my eyesight was very bad and I didn't get glasses until I was 6 years old. This ment that my moter skills weren't developed like they should have been and I still feel the consequence of that. Not that it really matters so much most of the time but it does when dealing with real tiny things. So no more dolls smaller than 16cm for me.


Friday, November 11, 2011

BJD Challenge Day 6

Biggest size you own? (Have held/seen/like)

The biggest size I own is MSD. So far my DollZone girls are the biggest with their 43cm but when I get my DollZone Mo in January he'll be the biggest since he'll be 46cm. The biggest size I've heldt is an SD - not sure wich one is the biggest though. Apart from the very first one (70cm) I saw - and held - I have heldt a few SDs at meet ups.

There's many very beautiful SDs that I admire but they are too big for me for several reasons. They are just too heavy and difficult to drag around, they are too expensive and they take up too much space.

When I say that they are too expensive it has to do with the fact that it would be difficult for me to save up for them ad long as there's smaller and much less expensive dolls I also want. I just don't have enough self-control when it come to money.

BJD Challenge Day 5

What/who was the very first BJD you saw?

The first BJD I saw in real life was a 1/3 (70cm) DollZone huy. I think it was a Yuu but I'm not sure. He was supposed to be Severus Snape. He belonged to a woman I ment on DOA who happened to live in the same town as me. We met and had coffee in the city and she brought her doll. This was back in March 2008


Tuesday, November 8, 2011

BJD Challenge Day 4

What/who was the first BJD you ever owned? Do you still own them? (Who is your planned first?)

The first one I ordered was Ilvara my DollZone 1/4 Feilian. However while I was waiting for her I bought three other dolls - one that was in stock and two off The Marketplace on DOA. So the first one I got was Ulja a Tinybear Moona. She has resently moved to live with my friend Asneth. Ilvara I'm not getting rid of EVER! I just love that girl so much. In some wierd way she is me - if that makes sence.

BJD Challenge Day 3

Post a picture of all your dolls!

Not a very good one but it was soooo difficult to get them all to fit into one photo. But here we go - even with my new arrival in the photo:


Katarina is here!

This afternoon the mail man delivered Katarina my DollZone 1/4 tan Annie to me. I think I'm in love! Take a look and then you might understand - even though she's much more beautiful in real life.

She looks much more serious than I thought she'd be but IMO she's very very beautiful. I really wish the photos could do her justice.


Saturday, November 5, 2011

BJD Challenge Day 2

Do you own any? If so how many and if not, do you have any plans to at the moment?

I have 27 full dolls, two extra LittleFee faceplates with personalleties (and face-up eyes and wigs) and a head also with everything except a body. Then I have a MNF OE head with eyes and an idea of a wig but she needs a new face-up before becommimg a "person" and I have a blank MNF Juri 2010 head and three MNF sleeping heads but I have no imidiate plans for any of them. I also have three incomming dolls all DollZone 1/4 - a tan Annie that's been shipped and a WS Mo and a WS modded Annie that I have on layaway. The last two are second hand and from the same seller and I'll get them in January.

As for plans . . . I do plan to get a LittleFee Chiwoo - I already have a wig and I am waiting for the eyes I want to come in. I also want a LittleFee DES or Lishe with a custom face-up. I have both eyes and wig for her. I also plan to get rid of 4 dolls. I want Amaryllis my Soom MiniGem Uyoo Elf to go and live with my friend Annefia and I plan to sell my three CH kids.

And then there's all my wishes. At the moment the ones I wish for the most is a MNF Mirwin and a PukiFee Cupid . . . and perhaps a PukiFee Pong as well.


BJD Challenge Day 1

Why do you like BJDs?

I always loved dolls and BJDs are just the most amazing dolls ever. I love how they pose and how you can customise them yourself. And they are so beautiful. They just seem so alive to me. I love how not two dolls are completely the same. Like my two DollZone Feilians who are very different from each other.

Catses and more catses

Everyone are getting cats - except me. One of my friends just got the cutest ragdoll kitten and another friend just got two shelter cats - one senior cat and a deaf white kitten with blue eyes. (White cats with blue eyes are in most cases deaf) My son is also talking about getting a second cat.

I really wish I could have a cat but you have to be realistic and think of the cat's best interrests. I wouldn't be able to take proper care of it so it would be very selfish to get one anyway. Whenever you are thinking of getting a pet you should always consider the pet's interrest. Are you going to be able - and willing - to give them the care and attension they need? Can you afford vet bills? After all it is a long term committment and it's very important do do the right thing - rater than do what you feel like right now.

So even if I really wish I could have a cat or a dog I'm not getting one. I guess I'll have to comford myself withn the thought that I have three incommimg dolls. Even though they are not fluffy and warm and soft they are still very cute and make me smile.

It's a dangerous place!

The Marketplace at DOA I mean. I was browsing it just to know what people were selling and then I came across two - yes two dolls that I fell in love with. They were even from the same seller. I just had to PM her and ask if she would accept a layaway. So I ended up buying both. Oops! The moral of this of course is that you should never even look at the Marketplace at all.

The dolls won't be comming home until January because I wouldn't want them to get caught up in the Christmas mail rush. They are both ws DollZone 1/4s - a Mo with a beautiful face-up and a modded Annie without face-up. I have already contacted the face-up artist I want about a spot in February. I have a beautiful Leeke wig and some eyes that will look great with it for the Annie and I'm getting the Mo with both his eyes and his wig.I am very happy and excited.

This of course means that the LittleFee Chiwoo boy I was planning to get next will be delayed. I already have his wig and have decided his eyes. I will be notifyed when they are back in stock. I also have eyes and a wig for a LittleFee girl but I haven't decided if she'll be a Lishe or a DES. The Chiwoo will have blonde hair and very blue eyes and the girl will have a beautiful red Kana Wave wig and green eyes.

Before all this I will get my tan DollZone Annie though. I'm hoping she'll be here some time during November. I also finally found out what her name was. She's called Katarina. She'll have green eyes too and I have three different wigs so I hope she'll like one of them. They are all brown.

The Fairytale of The Two Heads

Once upon a time there was a doll company called Custom House. They had event after event after event and the crazy Danish woman knew they were really really slow sending their dolls out. Still she was stupid enough to buy two heads as a split in a group order. Then the waiting began. And she waited and waited for over a year. She started to think she would never get the heads but finally they came.

The person doing the group order lived in USA and since the crazy Danish woman wanted face-ups by an American artist, she asked the person who ran the group order if she would be kind enough to hang on to the heads for a while.

Then the crazy Danish woman waited again. After months she finally got the chance to get the face-up artist to do her heads. The talented artist Xhanthi did a wonderful job with the heads and the crazy Danish woman was very happy. She ordered wigs - and while she was at it she ordered wigs for two other dolls as well.

She also ordered some special eyes for the bigger of the two heads, but they hadn't turned up when the wigs came. The crazy Danish woman really loved the wigs though and couldn't wait to show them. Even though her pictures weren't the best. It was just some quick ones she took when she received the wigs.

Here's picture of the little Bisou girl. Her eyes are a bit wonky because my fingers are too big to place them right.

Here's the Spia girl just after she arrived:

And with the new wig:

Kieron also got a new wig. He's very happy with it partly because it hides his scar somewhat.

And then there was a wig for a LittleFee Chiwoo that I want - but haven't even ordered yet. (I know I'm crazy. LOL)Tjalfe was so kind to try it for me.

Julliane's background

Like most of my dolls of course Julliane has a background too. Her mom died when she was very little - perhaps 1½ year old. So she grew up with her mom's brother that was 20 years older than her mom and his wife. They didn't really care about her. They just wanted her so be well behaved and look adorable so they could show her off to friends. They didn't understand her at all and they didn't want to try. They saw her like a doll or something.

Her aunt used to dress her up in pink with lace and frills and ruffles and such and she was always told to be careful and not make her clothes dirthy. The result is that she hates pink and lace and ruffles. She likes simple clothes in more or less dark colours - or at least not pastel.

She was never allowed to be with other children either and she is very very shy with very little confidence in herself. When she first came here she had no idea what to make of the other kids. However Vigdis who is also somewhat unsure of herself even though she's not shy like Julliane started to talk to her. They bonded very fast and have become best friends. They have much in common and they really need each other. And they are so cute together.

A shiny new one.

So last Sunday a week after my computer went down my vey good friend Grafty came to visit me. Or rather my computer. He quickly found out that my graphis card card had died. (I'm thinking of having a funeral for it.) So he borrowed me a small graphic card - you know the kind you can't really use to play games.

After he left I wanted to talk to my friend Annefia on Skype . . . and my microphone didn't work! I managed to talk to her on my laptop but it was really annoying. The next day I texted Grafty about it and he told me to make sure that the headphone was pluged in properly. It was. Then he told me to check if the plugs in the back was plugged in properly - wich they were. At least I at first thought they were. Until I realized he had pluged the microphone in the wrong place. When I told him he said something like: Oh okay really there you go who would have thought that wonders will never cease but isn't it lovely weather today. (This was 10pm and it was dark)

Then today he came back with a card we had agreed he should get for me. It's somewhat better than the one that died so it's very cool. My computer is actually 7 years old (and Grafty build it for me) but it's not that bad because back then is was SUPER good and fast. Even before I was able to play Settlers 7 even though the graphic would lag a little now and then. Now of course it doesn't lag at all. I'm very happy.

All of this of course have ruined my dolly plans. I was trying to save up so I could get a fullset next time Fairyland have an event but after having to pay a PukiFee - ehhh I mean about 250$ for a new graphic card I'm not sure I'll be able to do that. Sigh!

I hate when that happens!

I have decided to try and update more often and also talk a bit about none doll stuff in this blog. Instead of starting a new blog I'll just change the way I use this one.

Yesteday my computer broke down. I was playing a game when all of a sudden it wasn't turned on any more. Once again I realized how difficult it is for me to do without my computer. I have a laptop - a very old and cheap laptop but I have trouble using it. The screen is way too small, the keyboard is difficult to use and I don't have anywhere I can sit comfertable when using it.

The solution to those problems is of course to hook it up with the keyboard, monitor and mouse I normally use for my desktop. Sadly I can't do that myself. Not that I wouldn't be able to figure it out. After all it's pretty straight forward but it involved going down on the floor and I can't do that because of my physical problems.

Luckely my son was able to come and set it up for me. He's such a good boy. Or man perhaps - he's 31. LOL

The hours between my computer broke down and I was on my laptop was horrible though. I didn't know what to do with myself. I couldn't Check my e-mail and talk to my friend in Sweden, I couldn't check forums or anything or look for new dolly stuff to want to buy for several hours. A true nightmare I tell you. I'm sure I have been traumatized by it! LOL

The LittleFees outdoors

I wanted to take some pictures of all my kids but it was too much to take them all. So I just took my LittleFees. I couldn't bring Penny though because she shares a body with Shilling. (And when I get her face-plate Secret)

It had been raining and it was pretty gray and it was 6.30PM when I was finally ready to take the pictures. I think they light is really pretty though. It looks so soft.




And another one of Shilling just because I love her in her new wig


Ans finally all four of them together

I feel I've learned something about light in photos from this.

The family is growing

My resin family keeps growing. First I ordered a DollZone Aimi in WS. Then totally spontaniously I ordered a 5StarDoll Quitus. He turned up first. His name is Desmo - short for Desmodus Rotundus.

Desmo is an unusual vampire though. The reason he has come to live here is that the other vampires doesn't want to have anything to do with him. First of all he's a really nice and kindhearted guy and then he's allergic to blood. Poor guy. LOL Having grown up with vampires he has never learned to interact with people in a normal friendly manner so he's kind of socially akward. He is a bit introvert and he really admires Maylea. (Who really admires Tjalfe. LOL)

The next one to m ove in was Tindra - my DollZone 1/4 WS Aimi. She hasn't told me anything about her background yet. She's a quiert and soft girl. And very beautiful IMO

She seems to have become close to Senja (MiniFee modded Shushu) wich I find surprising because Senja is an alien and very unusual in some ways. Amongs other things she's like 211 years old. But look at them together!

My next doll was a Fairyland LittleFee Luna named Julliane. She grew up with her uncle and aunt. Her oncle was her mom's brother but he was 20 years older than her mom. They never really understood her - or even wanted to. They saw her as something they could show off. Her aunt loved to dress her up is lots of frilly pink stuff. The more the better. She was always told to be careful and not get her clothes dirty and she was never allowed to play with other children.

She is the only one of my dolls (so far) who's generally shy. She has totally bonded with Vigdis though. This is a wonderful thing for both of them. Oh ans she hates wearing pink and loves simple clothes in darker colours.

When Julliane arrived I also got a WS PukiFee Bonnie without face-up. Her name is Mims and she's going to be a mermaid. Her face-up is done but I'm still waiting for her tail so you won't get to see her until she's finished.


Sunday, April 3, 2011

I got a new head.

I bet that would creep some (non-dolly) people out. LOL

First off a picture of my Lishe head. She still needs eyelashes and I want to fix something about her mouth. I think I can do it even though I'm not very good at face-ups. This is just a small fix.

A couple of days ago I got a shipping notise for Desmo my 5SD Quintus. I'm SO much looking forward to getting him home.

The reason Desmo is comming to live with us is that the other vampires don't want to have anything to do with him. First of all he's actually a sweet and kindhearted guy and second he's allergic to blood. Poor guy but I hope he'll be happy here. LOL

I have some really exciting news! (At least exciting for me. LOL) I got a tax refund and was able to order a WS PukiFee Bonnie and a LittleFee Luna. Bonnie is going to have a custom face-up, light orange hair and green eyes and freckles - and she'll be a mermaid. Her name is Mims.

I ordered Luna with default face-up. I'm not sure about her eyes yet but I have a Jpop wig in a beautiful golden colour that I'll proably use for her. I have some purple eyes but I think she should have gray or bluish gray eyes. I don't have a name for her either. I do know what sort of clothes she likes though. She doesn't like colours that are too light or bright. I don't expect them to be home for a long time so I'm trying not to think too much about them.

New beautiful eyes

I resently got som new eyes from Ginarolo on DOA For quite a while I have wanted to upgrade Gro's eyes. They used to be Safrin Doll acrylics but now she has beautiful glass eyes. She also got a haircut. But she says that if you liked her braids not to worry because her hair will grow out again. (As in I still have the other wig. LOL)

While I was at it I ordered some new eyes for Miripihka. I have been trying to find the right eyes for her ever since I got her. I didn't like her default eyes at all. I never succeeded - not until now that is. These are PERFECT IMO. It's just her eyes. It's such an amazing feeling when you find something and it turns out to be just perfect.

I just love this girl so much.

I also bought a MNF Lishe head at The Marketplace at DOA. It was so beautiful and I have wanted a Lishe for a long time. I only want the head though because even though I love the MNF body I want most of my girls - and guys - to be taller. So if I find a MNF head I want at The Marketplace and the price is resonable I'll get it if I can find the money.

This head is a WS and has a really nice face-up. She's going to have a DollZone body even though I'm not sure how their WS resin match the Fairyland WS resin. I'll just have to see when the head gets here.

TOF - (Twitcy Order Finger)

So I had an attac of TOF and accedently ordered a 5SD Quintus. It was a combination of him being awfully cute, free shipping and layaway that got my finger to twitch and order him. At least that's what I suspect caused it. LOL

I'm not sure yet if he'll have orange hair and eyes or green hair and green eyes. His name is going to be Desmo. It's short for Desmodus Rotundus.

I'm very excited and can't wait to get him.


Sunday, February 6, 2011

Waiting again.

I have been wanting a DollZone WS Aimi for a very long time and the other day I was finally able to order her. The next day her name came to me. She's going to be Tindra which is a Swedish name and means shimmer. I think it'll be just right for her. I have had her wig and eyes for quite a while and I'm so looking forward to getting her home.

I cut Aimi's face out of a picture from the site and fused it on a photo I had of Miripihka trying out her wig. I also changed the colour of the eyes. It's far from perfect but it gives me a sense of how she'll look.

I have also ordered a dress for her from Sharon and I think it'll be beautiful. I have the fabric myself and shall send it to her. I just hope the shoes I ordered the other day will match. Keep your fingers crossed! LOL

Very sad news

This isn't doll related but I just feel I have to post about it.

Tuesday morning I got a call from my friend Jytte's oldest daughter. She told me that Jytte had died the previous day (January third) in a fire. I have know Jytte for almost 30 years and even though we didn't have much contact the last years I still loved her. She moved to another city and she didn't have internet and wasn't the type who enjoyed chit-chatting on the phone. I always felt that if we met after a minut it would be like we talked yesterday.

Jytte had a very difficult life from her early childhood and had to struggle with a lot of problems but she was a fighter. She always fought so hard to make her life better and grow as a person. And she did do a lot of growing even though it was a slow process. I always admired her for her will to work through things. It feels so unfair that bad things continued to happen to her - and in the end it killed her.

She raised three beautiful daughters and she sertainly had a huge possitive impact on my life. I hope that she can finally have the peace and happiness she truely deserves. Goodbye my dear friend, you will always be remembered.
