2016 updates

Too much has gone on on the doll side of things to go into a lot of detail. A quick update that hopefully actually be quick and not go on and on as I like to do will hopefully work for now.

I am still obsessed with my DC dolls. Some have been added, some are still not done after months and months and months. My Ringdoll Norman Dark Joker is pretty much my favorite doll right now, except for one other one-

Jonathan Crow, my Ringdoll K who is my number 1 obsession, pretty much since I got his blank head (which was probably the last post I made before my hiatus), and will be the subject of my attempt at Nanowrimo this year. We'll see how that goes. My best friend may do it with me this year so maybe we'll motivate each other. If nothing else I've been drawing him a lot. And on him. Seriously. Poor doll is a canvas of stuff. Or a mess, one of the two.

I've pretty much not touched my other dolls at all other than a few exceptions.

My Dollmore Miso on a Zaoll body who go the Ringdoll Mona (crying) head became a Ringdoll Aya who has Mona as her extra head. Still on the Zaoll body because of the perfect.

Alex I had damage to his faceup I have yet to fix.

I finally did the faceup on my Volks DWC03, which is awesome. I am really happy with him.

I have a Marilyn Manson doll now. He's *seriously you're going to laugh* a Dollshe Saint. Because I always seem to buy back the dolls I sell.

I also have a fan doll of the lead in a series of books I love, the latest installment of which is due out tomorrow (and is on the way to me according to Amazon).

I'm going to toss together Harry Dresden to make all the fan dolls complete.

Bilbo Baggins is back.

Dr. Strange finally has a faceup. He can now only be Dr. Strange. Stupid facial hair.


I have done mods! Like, real mods! go me!

I've been gluing hair to dolls instead of wigs. Yep. John started a trend and it just keeps on going.

I'm thinking of selling a couple of dolls I never thought I'd sell.

My cat, Dr. Peter Venkman, who was the kitten of doom, has grown into the biggest, fattest cat ever. Seriously, he huge. He just had his 1 year anniversary. Which means it's also been 1 year since Rocky died. I chose to celebrate the happier occasion and luffed on my Wetey Wetes (he thinks that is his name).

I'm sure there's more. John Crow will probably get his own back-post because I love to post him everywhere, but I'm not sure about the rest! We'll see where I end up lol

For now, here is my newest. He's not new. You may remember him from two years ago as I got him early 2014....he looked like this


Whee! That's old. Hmm. lesseeeee....not my faceup. I do like the wig and eyes, which ended up being my problem.
Eventually I gave him a new faceup and then he looked like this


Huge improvement, love the faceup, still love the wig....but I could never settle on a name, personality or animal for him (He belongs to the group of dolls I named after coffee. Remember them? They all have animal ears of some kind), and thus he's been nameless for long time.

Generally when a doll goes this long unresolved I sell it, but....I really like him. He kind of got me over my MNF hatred, and all he is is pretty.

Over the weekend I was thinking again how stupid it was for me to have dolls named after coffee and not have a Pumpkin Spice, which is the best thing ever, but I don't want new dolls and the two I have don't look like Pumpkins to me. Then I thought I could get rid of the blue wig on this guy and re-christen him Pumpkin. Only since he has no name, there should be no "re" in that sentence.

But I love the blue wig....and honestly I didn't want to make a new wig. I was looking for a choker for one of my other dolls (who has probably been sitting on the shelf naked for more than a year - told you they were neglected) and thought it was with Mini-Harley's stuff. Digging around in the Batman accessory tub, I found Scarecrow's wig, which, since he's always in the mask, he doesn't I tried it on Nameless1 (because I have a Unoa who is Nameless2), and. Well.


I like it! Kept the faceup I love, gave him some green eyes, because the pinky blue ones didn't go with the orange, and he looks like a Pumpkin now! So finally - Pumpkin Spice Latte has arrived, two years after he arrived. I still need to get him a character, and I'm kind of leaning toward a fox for his animal, but I'm not sure I like it. I'm sad I still can't use the blue wig (which I spent a lot of time dying a million years ago), but I think this is perfect. Even the uneven cut works IMO.

Then I did that thing where I thought I needed a Peppermint Mocha, and realized my Nameless Unoa can have that! His current form is on the right, next to Macchi. Little Wyn is the giant on the other side of him. He wants to be a Unicorn too.


So much pastel.

That faceplate already had that face on it when I got the doll, it needs to be redone....other than that, he's good to go! My favorite Starbucks drinks in doll form! XD

Lookit that! I did an update! Go me!!

I should have waited a whole year to do this? XD

Anyhow, I thought about dragging this blog out of the corner I stashed it in - completely by accident - and dusting it off to see what could be done about it, and found that somehow the template I'd been using was broken.

So now I have a hastily thrown together new look! Ish!

I may change it up some, but for now it's not awful.

You may be wondering what happened. I've gotten a lot of questions about it actually.

The truth? Nothing. I guess I was busy, and then I just didn't post anything. know how hard it is to get back into something once you've been gone for months. I just didn't.

Then today I was looking at some photos I had (actually) taken of a mod project and though "gee, wouldn't it be nice if I had somewhere to post all these photos?"



Cue me venturing back to see if I can bring this thing out of the coma I left it in. I have a lot of updating to do, my lists aren't right anymore, sales are a mess, I pretty much want nothing on my old trade list anymore so I have to redo everything. My project list is totally different. I need to start over in the BJD Bloggiverse, so I might as well get to it.

In the meantimes if you feel like catching up
I haven't stopped BJD-ing. Anything I have done and actually liked be there. Somewhere.

Happy Friday BJD peoples! I hope you have a great weekend! <3

New Year

The Holidays are over - thank god. Hopefully everyone else's were better than mine! Between my dad having a health emergency and spending Christmas in the hospital and my cat having his eye infection, getting his rabies shot and then declawed, and the insane amount of rain that led to the closing of most of our major highways and half the state under water, I was in serious stress mode. I'm pretty much done with all holidays now.

Stress being stressful, I pretty much did nothing at all with my dolls until a couple days ago. Or yesterday. My vacation was pretty much over with by the time I touched resin lol

Since I don't want to dwell over the crap, I'll move on to doll things.

My most wonderful bestest friends gave me a Volks DWC03 head for Christmas, which I immediately decided to put on my SD10 body and scrap the 02 I've yet to put a faceup on. When I had them next to each other I saw how different they were from one another, and I couldn't at least try to keep the 02. Way back in the day, I had tried to buy a second 02 head - the first one was Dark, the angel I called Trevor with punk hair who was my all-Angel band called Fallen. The second I wanted for my Zaoll body to be Cassiel, the singer in the same band. I got a PW Goldie head in a trade instead, and Cass has been a Goldie ever since.

PW Goldie was a dream doll of mine, and since I sold my other one, Cass was pretty special to me.

I tried the old 02 head on her body and turned around and put the PW head up for sale.

Seriously. You should see how adorable she is. The 02 was a great cute boy, but meant to be a girl, and you can totally see why. even blank she's just amazing. Her wigs fit better and I think she's more proportionate and realistic looking. I love it. Never going back!!!

The 03 head is great on the boy body and will be perfect. His eyes even fit better.

Big Harley got a new wig that looks way more like the movie version. I love it. From the front lol. From the back it's all cap!

I was close to buying K a body....then bought some wigs, a head and a couple action figures. Oops. I'll get some more doll monies. I got a little from my Dad for christmas, so with I'm still owed for a layaway, I should have most of what I need. I really want a body for him.

My other project I have yet to really start is the next addition to the DC minis. John Constantine - the Hellblazer. I used to read this series back when it was with Vertigo (which is just another DC company), and recently started reading the newest one (since it just started) and it was one of those moments where I thought "why didn't I think of this before??!". He'll make a great doll......if I can figure out what head to use. I have two bodies, and a million head choices. Right now I'm leaning toward Granado Terra....due to the fact that one of th bodies is Granado and I have yet to find a head that will go on it. Other possibilities are Dollzone and Withdoll heads. I have no idea. He's a tough one. Clothes are going to be hard too. At least pretty much everything I need can come from Alice collections. Though I have a small order from them that just I'll have to wait until it gets here. Plus, it has mini pants in it, and I need to try them on him.

Still waiting on LTF Pong. I keep hoping he'll show, but so far nothing. I seem to have no patience waiting for this thing lol I check the FL waiting room all the time, every email I get I hope is from's pathetic.

So that's pretty much my current 2016 plan
Body for K, who I'm still calling John Doe
Head for Constantine
Body for Catwoman
Clothes for all the dolls

Everything else is up in the air lol

So that's it for me. Hope everyone got to 2016 in one piece!

All things coming and going.

I wanted to wait until everything was here to do an entry since I had a lot of stuff shipped at the same time - or close to it - and since it's all accounted for now; stuff!

I touched on my plans for the MNF Karsh I got in a trade - he got here, broken ear and all - last week. I restrung him, gave him a good cleaning then sanded off his little elfy ears so he's a peoples now. I haven't actually thought to photograph the mod, but I think I did a good job.

Anyway here is Nightwing, or Dick Grayson, former first Robin, current spy and kind of adopted son of Bruce Wayne. Someday when he's got his costume I'll have to get a shot of him with Batman....but for now he's in street clothes. Which is weird thanks to the permanent mask.


Still need eyes for him, and a better wig. I kind of butchered this one (hence the hat) and I'm out of black fur because everyone under the freaking sun has black hair.  I like him. I am driven insane by the chest of the MNF body (as usual) but if I can suede him, he'll be fine. I had to get him new hands too, he came with the girliest hands MNF has. Seriously. The hands were at DDE so they've already yellowed some, but they need more yellowing. This poor thing is not new. Lol

Also newly showed up on my doorstep - a last minute (and I say last minute because the actual negotiations as it were, were fast and we shipped the next day XD) trade! Yesterday I received a LTF Shiwoo boy, which is so fabulous....because poor Chibi Bats was actually on a girl body. A quick switch and now I finally have Catwoman in doll form. Chibi doll form....but still!!

She's also no where near finished. That wig doesn't fit her (and again - no fur), the hat and goggles are a temporary fix for her costume, she needs eyes, boots and a more feminine faceup so she actually looks like a girl.

Originally I wanted a Mio to be Selina in LTF form, but I need a LTF boy to switch with Batman's body (and I only intend to own three Chibis - got the two, three is on the way. Well he's ordered. He'll get here eventually.), so I figured I'd just use this one temporarily until I can get ahold of a Mio....but Shiwoo's eyes are a great shape, so she's staying. I can make her look girly!

Chibi bat and cat

She kind of reminds me of the Selina from Gotham.

Finally, Ringdoll shipped my K head already! He also arrived this week (busy busy) and I have to say, if this guy had a body already I'd probably be ignoring all other dolls right now. I am totally in love with this head. I mean LOVE.

I've always been a fan of the ones that aren't model-gorgeous, and I tend to roll my eyes when people go on and on about how realistic Iplehouse is....because they're only realistic in a world where not one person has any flaws, they all spend their lives in a gym and are sickeningly perfect :P
Like in a romance novel.

This is the doll I have wanted. If he were real I'd want to lick his face. Or roll on him. TMI? D:

I've named him John Doe for now as I'm...only kind of sure what I'm doing with him. I have drawings, mostly scribbles. I have had an inability to draw since the spring and have had a notebook for the last several months I've been doodling in...mostly a nameless guy (which is where I got John Doe) who looks just like K's fullset minus the cleric clothes. Which is why I was so blown away when they showed their pictures of him for the first time. And why I had to own him, even if I could only get the blank head.



Cheekbones omg


 Lookit that profile!


I'm already mentally going through my dolls, trying to figure out what I can part with to get money to buy him a body. Everyone else just got moved to the bottom of the list.

Still waiting on LTF Pongpong. It's been about a month I I probably have at least three to go. Which is killing me. I want him so badly right now lol

Ordered two stands, a pair of pants and shoes from Alice. No word on that. 

That's it. Not too exciting.

I feel like I've sold a lot of dolls this year, and I'm really considering others right now. It's kind of a big decision because I've had them for years, I have a lot of accessories for them I have spend $$ on, and I had all these plans....

But I think I have to sell my Puki's. 

Ok, I don't have to sell anyone. Ever. But they live in a bag....and I don't think I've touched them all year. Not even at Halloween which is when they usually come out. 

I'm almost afraid to do it though. It was hard to get them all together and the way I want. It took time, money, patience.... I'd get rid of all of them and everything except for Alex (Chichi) who I'd keep. And whatever FPs I have that I can use for him, his clothes, and accessories......and really that's it. Everything else can go. The only reason I haven't sold them already (or at least put them up for sale) is because I'm really scared I'll regret it.

But then again.

It's been a year at least since I touched them last. I don't even look at them. 

I started collecting this size by accident (for reals), oddly related to MNF Karsh who I seem to have issues with too lol, and the only reason I've gotten so many and so into it is that I have problems with Alex existing on his own. But since getting Chibi Alex for my birthday in 2013 I feel like that's changed. I have gotten rid of most of my Mini versions of the characters -right now all I have left together is Alex and Wyn. Kimi is destined to become Robin and David is in pieces, Aishe is just a head and Uriel is gone and Isis is both Catwoman and Harley Quinn- leaving Alex by himself because Wyn will fit in with my other Mini group perfectly (and i'm not selling him) so I don't worry about him. I like having just the one group of them in SD form. I should just sell the Puki group.....and move Puki Alex into the Halloween crew. He'd work with them. I'm sure he and the Alexcorn will get along XD

 I also might end up selling my WD Werewolf cub, simply because I've still not given him a faceup!

But that leaves me with just two in that size....and I'm not sure I like that number.

But for sure I am putting up my Soom Flint. I feel like it was just a matter of time for him. Another one I might regret. Then again, my AS Kimo and Soom Afi hybrid are still unsold, so I may end up having to keep them all!! Maybe I can offer all three up for a trade or something :/

The other big one I'm waffling over is Mini-David, my Migidoll Mir/latidoll hybrid. As I mentioned, I have issues leaving Alex alone in his doll-world, but Mini David is just not working for me. I don't like the Lati body and it is literally the only one in existence that will work with that head. I would have sold it already if he'd worked on either the Grando body (which has been sitting on my self headless since I got it) or the Iplehouse one would have worked, but I would need to mod more off the head for either of them, and they still aren't tall enough. The head is visually too big for everything else. I might see if I can get him on a Soulddoll Vito body (I have a friend who owns one)....but I think it will be too childish for that monster. It really needs to be a more masculine head.

My other option is to sell him as a full doll and just get a SD Vito and try to make it David.

Or just not own a Mini-David anymore (which is really looking to be my #1 choice). If Alex can't survive on his own.....I'll turn him into an extra in my Batman-verse. XD He can complain a lot and wear a mask or something.  If that doesn't work I'll work on mini-David version four. Ugh.

Well, tying all this out has kind of decided me on all fronts I think.  I have a lot of sales pictures to take this weekend. My shelf might finally be empty enough to move all my DC guys (and girl) so they can sit together instead of all over the place. Which will be nice.

EDIT: I tried adding a cut to this so it didn't appear so long....but as usual it didn't work. I don't know why mine never does - maybe because I use Safari on a Mac? A lot of internet won't work right for me because of that.
