Good morning all you there in Internet-Land! Well, as the title says, I have been having some BJD fun ~ maybe too much fun. I have been adding some gals to my small, yet growing, collection. One of the dolls has been here for quite a while, and I need to put on her face. That is the 60cm MiroDoll body with the Fairyland Feeple Nanuri event head. The next addition was the Bobobie Ophelia. My latest purchase is the 60cm white Resinsoul body with both jointed hands and stationary hands. I just love her slender sculpt! I bought a “white skin” AkagiDoll Ban head for her, but it was not white like the body ~ just a lighter natural color. I could make it work, but it doesn’t look quite as I wish, so I have purchased a DollLove Xueying head instead ~ now I’m waiting for it to arrive. I might sell the AkagiDoll head … or just wait and get another body to go with it … I mean, all these girls were UNDER $200 … but seriously, I need to stop! 🙂
The next bit of fun news is a reminder to me that you can always find cool dolly items in not-so-expensive places. My friend came to work the other day and said, “I have something for you. I was searching through the ‘pay-by-the-pound’ bin at Goodwill and found this! Maybe you can use it for a pattern or sell it or something.” She then handed me this adorable fisherman’s vest, complete with actual pockets, zippers, and lures! It has a brand sticker, “MUSTAD,” but I’ll need to do some research on it. It looks like it will fit a third-scale BJD or American Girl size doll. It’s so cute ~ I definitely will NOT be selling it!
Another item on my “talk about” list is that I have five new doll trunks in production. My bedroom/sewing room/work shop is getting VERY full! I will post updates when the trunks are done and ready to list on eBay. Or maybe I’ll just try selling them here on my own site. Not sure yet.
And now to something for you. As I mentioned on my facebook page, I am working on a new spring project. It’s a collection of five pastel jacket & dress sets. (This MUST be the reason I needed more dolls, right???) I even bought five pair of white sneakers for them to all wear in the photo shoots ~ so excited! I have all the jackets cut out, and have been working on the dress pattern I will be using. It’s a basic dress with a dropped front V-waistline, gathered skirt, and overlapping tulip sleeves. I decided to share the dress pattern with all of you. I will post the pdf file on my Ready To Print page, so you can hop over there to easily download it. This pattern is formatted to 8.5×11 inch paper.
I hope you enjoy the pattern and have a super great day!
