Frills and sins


Lately I've been going crazy in Etsy's supply section and have ordered for example polka-dotted bias tapes, cute stickers and jewelry parts. Let's not talk about how much I've spent...but damn it, Etsy and its dangerous temptations, I tell you >:(

Meital's new underdress is made from some cream-coloured tulle lace I found there amongst the other pretty things. The lace itself is so beautiful that it needed nothing but a waistband. Simple and cute! It goes very well with Meital's creamy "Rumba" skirt. "Rumba" is the name for that frilly fabric which our local biggest fabric store chain sells. It's very popular amongst us Finnish dolly sewers ;3

I have an itch to pamper my princess M some more...

L-doll 2011: a sneak preview

New hats

New hats

New hats

I will be participating in this year's Ldoll festival in Lyon, France - well, sort of. Sadly I'm not able to go there myself, but my friends will have a selling booth there where we will be offering nifty handmade BJD clothes and such. I, of course, will send some knitted hats with them. So if you're going there, please stop by our table and have a look :3

The pictures are of hats I've made for the event. New designs, new yarns, cute things and uh...stuff. Sizes range from Realpuki to MSD.

Maybe I'll be able to attend the next year ;3;


Also, I wanted to try out Tumblr. It seems quite trendy, maybe bit too much for me, but you cannot know unless you try it. I admit, I never thought to use it for BJD purposes until I found people posting my photos there :P

Which reminds me that I don't mind my photos being re-posted elsewhere (hey, it's free promotion!) but I'd like to get some credit. A link to this blog is just fine :)

Birds and strange things

I'm here, so pay attention now

Big bird


Hmm, all the recent posts have been about my bird-themed dolls. Well, here is one more :D I took a photoshoot with Krähe and Hildegard, my Yrie who loves to boss poor Krähe around. She's a gutsy little thing.

This is Faramita, a new uhm...bjd creature from Doll-Chateau. I have no idea what exactly she is, but I know that she is just adorable <3 Is it bad if I want her? Somehow she just reminds me of surreal children's fairy tales. I could get her painted in shades of mint blue and pink, give her glass beads as eyes and turn her into something very strange but cute!

Big birdie feets

Big birdie feets

Ehm, I bought Soom Galena's talons for Krähe :B What else can you really say about this except that I seem to have quite the addiction for birdie parts on BJDs? When my Nor arrives, I need to take a comparison photo of Soom's birdie feets as I will own them in all three sizes. Heaven forbid if I start lusting after Euclase's feet!

The feet sit okay on his Volks SD10, of course it feels and shows that they are not made to go together but he is able to stand and sit. And hey, Volks SD10 is not the best poser anyway and mine has a missing piece on the left knee, so I'm very used to him having difficulties to stand. I'd rather not mod anything because a) the re-sell value will go down b) I suck at it. So if they work, I shall keep him as he is, a little knee-handicapped birdie boy. Now he just needs a pair of pants...

Even more magpie boys


Even though he has nothing but his head and wig (Leeke's Roaylkhaki by the way, an awesome colour!), I wanted to take a little snapshot of Krumlen, Krähe's big brother. Yep, he's Dollgru #11, the very head that I've been wailing after a long while - and since this was the last time Kappa sold these heads, I knew I had to act. He's a pretty one and matches excellently with Volks resin, much better than his brother :P But I'm not giving my SD10 to him, the body just doesn't fit with the character I have in mind for Krum...

And a character, you may ask? Why, of course he has one. He's quite the winner, this one, a youngster living with his mother and writing questionable vampire fiction stories at night. He's a magpie as well, of course, and loves all things sparkly very much. It goes in the blood ;3

The shadow prince

The shadow prince

The shadow prince

The shadow prince

This is Senka, my Soom Bygg / Dikadoll hybrid. He is a shadow boy of the dreams, a servant of the nightmeres who has almost complitely forgotten who he once was. The shadow has almost complitely taken him and turned him ash grey. You can see the corruption on his neck and face. But something remains which still keeps him in a human form. What is it that you seek, Senka?

The Soomlings

Senka and Hilde, my two Soom tinies. So different...
