My New Girl

And my new girl is.....
A Dal Coral >_<
Did you guess it would be her?

I am really chuffed with her so far. Just look at that gorgeous outfit! I hope I can make one so lovely someday! I am not as disappointed in the Dal body as I expected to be either. It is a bit fragile and flimsy, but her poseability isn't too bad. I do hope to get her onto an Obitsu at some point though!
I'm thinking of calling her Flora or Barbara (shortened to Bunny). What do you think?

New Girl

oooh, I've don't it again! I've just bought another doll! I wasn't exactly an impulse buy, I've been watching her on eBay for a while and her price was good compared to other sellers' prices (also the seller was in the UK - take that customs!). Well, her auction was ending last night and I decided to place a bid whilst I was on the train (before it went underground and all hope was lost). I checked my emails when I got home and I'd 'won' her *booohyahh!!* *happy dances*. Of course this 'winning' still meant that I had to pay, so I am now officially skint again. But my doll family is expanding, along with my smile :P Any guesses as to who she is??

Who's That Girl?

Other news :)
I found the cutest fabric ever!! I am usually NOT a huge fan of Disney's Marie, but give her a kawaii twist, lots of pink, and print her on fabric - and I am converted! Throw is a few (kitty shaped!!!!) macaroons to seal the deal and I'm sold!

The fabric came so quickly and I made this dress with it:

I also made this star dress, I think it looks so cute on Celeste ^_^

Star Dress

Both dresses are available in my shop:

And last, but by no means least, I made this critter for the most amazing swap with a very special friend:

For Wiebke

I hope you like my recent makes >_<

Thank you for looking xx

Flirty Florals!

I have fallen for florals this Autumn!!
Here are my newest floral dolly-dresses:

Both are available here ^_^

And of course I want to introduce you to my newest girl, who I think is totally adorable! She is a Dollfie Dream, medium bust. I'd wanted one of these cuties since spying one on a fellow Dolly-Forum dweller's avatar. I saw those beautiful anime eyes and had to ask which ball-jointed beauty she was displaying. Of course when I heard that she was a Dollfie Dream I went straight to ebay. My jaw almost dropped to the floor when I saw just how expensive they were - goodbye dreams of owning a DD. No matter how much money I save, I doubt I will ever be able to justify paying 1.000 + GBP!!
As I was browsing Flickr oneday, I saw this beautiful DD head for sale at a very reasonable price. With a LOT of kind help from the seller, I learnt that the expensive DDs I had seen on ebay were priced so highly because they are limited edition dolls. She helped me to locate a body, and all in all my gorgeous girl cost less than my Minifee - not bad considering she is a gorgeous 60cm (when I opened my first BJD - a puki - I swore I would never go bigger than a Minifee *sigh*)

She is still nameless, but I think she will settle for Sayuri. I like a name to mean something, and 'Sayuri' means 'Little Lily' in Japanese. I am 4'11 tall and my last name is 'Lilley', so there is a little significance there >_<

Well, here she is:

Outfit, as ever, by me and available here
Thank you so much for your visit xx
