Furwigs~

Posted on

Here is some more furwigs done by me. This time I have used new fur, which has really thin hair. I think it turned out really nice! :) I was worried it would not look good on the dolls or that the quality would have been poor (lot of thinner furs are not as nice, at least the ones I have got my hands into).

I have also edited the wig pages on my selling pages:
Peruukit (in Finnish)
So go check it out if you want some! :3 I have also FINALLY updated my mohairs, so yay! \o/

But here is couple wigs, some of them have same wig used, so it might look bit off, but it shows so well how different dolls look in it so. ^w^ I have made pullip family size ones and also one try for smaller doll, momoko.


Dal (she is the one who kept it! ^w^)

Summer Challenge~ Weeks 4-6

Posted on

Helloo! It took me quite some time to get these here, Games Done Quick was awesome this year too (even donated a little, for the first time!) and I have to admit it took lion’s bite of all my life for over a week, and I don’t even start with 1-2h sleep then watch then sleep again, repeat… x___x
Either way, here are the pics!

Fair Mio-kit face up

Posted on

Finally, FINALLY! I got my face up block broken, last Sunday I spent 6+ hours making this beauty. I feel like I got a new doll! :3 I like how she turned out, tough her lashes were not supposed to be violet… But after I made her violet eyelid lines… I was done for. Good thing I had really nice lashes for her. She needs a new wig, prolly black or violet or combination of them. I also put her on obitsu, might want her to have shorter one, but that was the only one I had available. (I wanted to put her in type 2 body, but the hole in her head was too small. I didn’t want to make it larger so…) Also her eyes should be more green, but on her I don’t really mind this more tealy color, it looks nice on her. :3

Well, without a further do, here is blind girl I made. I think her name is Milka (it was supposed to be Linnea…) after all. Hope you like her, at least I do! ^u^

Summer Challenge~ Week 1

Posted on

Hi! There is a Summer Challenge in Finnish Pullip-forum, which originally is now 4th Summer, and first time I will participate. I don’t think I am able to take a picture daily, but at least 1 picture per week. Here is last week’s pics! ^w^


1/14 A) Paradis
Her eyes are green really, sadly they look blue with my cam and the lighting. I hope they will be correct on different lights…

Last one I edited the lips. The smile is stronger in the new Mio-kits, I don’t think it was as sharp in the old one. There isn’t even any make up in there, and it still looks like that! Oh well.


Street, Bouquet and Withered

Posted on

Hi again! Here is my newest Pullip dolls Street and Bouquet accompanied by Withered, who I have owned for years already. (She was actually a re-buy too.) Street I wanted to try, I could have always customized her if I didn’t like her, but I think she is better than I feared. The change of eyes definitely does it for me (she has yellow eyes normally), maybe adding/changing her eyeshadow (part of it is actually yellowing, she has very little of eyeshadow normally), but I don’t think she needs anything else. Maybe repair the eyeliner a bit, but these oldest Pullips were all handpainted, so the quality of the face up can be really poor. It isn’t bothering me as much I thought it could actually.

Oh, and her eyes… It was pain in the ass. Endless carving… The eyes normally have see-trough middle and a deep trail under the iris of the eyechip… So putting on new chips is not very bad. She did not have it, it was having pretty much straight line from the side to the middle part (pupil), very similar to blythe, except that there was about no trail on the side at all (blythe has small one). So i couldn’t pop out her eyes the normal way and carved forever to get the chips to fit her. They still don’t go as deep as I would like, but I got so fed up with it, I thought as long as it stays, it can be okay for now…

They were all made in 2003, and Street was one of the first 3 Pullips ever made, others being Wind and Moon. I currently own 5 type 1 bodied Pullips, all made on 2003, since the type 2 body was from 2004 onward. I have Squall (blank, needs face up) and customized Bouquet (she never had the face up, so this was the first time I actually saw a stock face up of Bouquet).

Bouquet I got, I was planning on getting another Withered to customize since I kinda don’t want to erase the current one I have. So when I saw this Bouquet for sale, I thought that she could make a perfect twin, who I could have the face up on (there is not really much to begin with, I could prolly just paint over her current one, it is all stock, she comes like this) instead. When I got them to compare, I knew my gut was right. She definitely does it, she even has longer hair and different side on her parting, the color being just slightly lighter than Withered’s.

Also the naming is kinda silly… My Withered, even the old one, since forever, has been Mugen Suru. I just got it in my head one day, and even tough Suru is also Finnish, her name wasn’t supposed to be so. So apparently one day I toyed with the word, thinking a name for the twin and… I got to Sugen Muru. I am too much into it, I find it very cute, Muru also being Finnish and meaning ”dear.” (Also a bit of something.) Since I usually call Mugen by that name, I found it funny that Muru would use the second name instead, if using just one of the names. Oh well… x3

I will have extra close ups on all of their make ups in the end of the post.

Lets start with a pic of all 3!

(The quality of this pic is not very good, but I didn’t take enough of them all together… ^^;;; )
And all the pics were taken in inside lighting, so…

10 years anniversary! <3 (image heavy)

Posted on

Please check part 1, retrospect first!

So a lot has happened after I got my first 2 Pullip dolls. My collection has grown bigger and smaller, and bigger again and I have now a lot of different kind of dolls, not just Pullips. I have Bjds, Blythes, Azones and now even Monster High, Bratz and Barbie dolls (mostly my childhood Barbies tough). I have ”matured and grown” a lot as a doll collector and hobbyist, as with my taste and my skills on taking pictures, making face ups and clothes and wigs and so on. For example I didn’t like Blythes at first and I also hated Bjds, tough it was because i was frustrated I did not find a Bjd ”for me.” Currently the top3 of dolls I have most are Pullip, Bjd and Monster High.

But what about the first 2 Pullips, Cornice and Raphia? They have been sold, re-bought and don’t have stock face up anymore. Raphia is still named Sanika, but Cornice Frephina is now Proserpina. (Or Pina for short.)

But how they look nowadays? Sadly they are not in their final versions yet, as I got new smaller and right color bead-things for Pina’s piercings and I want to actually mod and carve Raphia’s mouth and teeth properly, but this is how they look currently, 10 years later! (And will look for a while since Raphia is not first in the line waiting for face ups… Like she has a face, I have prolly 20+ dolls waiting for face up now…)

But lets hop to the new pics now! ^3^


Cornice aka Proserpina is on the left. Raphia aka Sanika is on the right.

10 years ago… (restrospect)

Posted on

…I just got my first Pullips. My first dolls. My first dolls as ”adult” collector. I lived alone, and I was 18.

This is the first part of this 10 years anniversary post, in restrospect.

Pullips, Raphia and Cornice. Bought from Pullipstyle at ebay, by my friend. She arranged it all, she ordered them and paid them with paypal and gave me tracking number. All I had to do, was to pay them for her.

It all started back in 2004 when I came across a Pullip doll online, Fantastic Alice. I felt instant love with this doll, but knew absolutely zero about them. I also was still underage and lived at home, so I dunno if I could have even afford it. By the time I got my first ones, she was already ”on the more expencive side”, and thus was not my first doll. I also used sweet lolita styled clothes sometimes, so Raphia and Cornice were a natural pick.

Then one day I came across with the dolls again and talked/showed them on irc for people and one of my friends knew more about them. She even had some and knew how to get and was a bit older than me, so she was more experienced in the field of international buying. She offered me to get the dolls, if I just paid them and I ofc said yes.
Later that year, end of the summer I think, I was visiting her and was able to admire her dolls. I remember I liked one particularly a lot and told her if she ever sold that doll, she should tell me. And I didn’t know then, but it was actually Fantastic Alice. I didn’t regonize her, she might have had different wig, I don’t remember it that well. But after that she actually sold her Alice. And I bought it. I got it so early, even tough I thought I would never got it. My grail. I paid it on layaway. But back to my first dolls.

Raphia I named Sanika and Cornice I named Frephina. They are cousins. I later sold both of them, but when I rebought them as same doll and character (with new face ups since before I only dared to do partial on them last time I had them, so this time I did them complete) and Frephina became Proserpina or Pina for short in the process. I also fell in love with the skintone of Cornice on some point, I like the olivy little tanned tone. (Venus also has this skintone.)

Here is the first pictures I ever took about my first 2 dolls. Even tough they are not technically the same dolls, they still are the same for me. Be aware that the picture quality is probably not very good. XD
The opening pictures and some of the first pictures were taken before I had access to a digital camera, and then you didn’t have much to see how your pictures turned out, not before they were printed out. It was also ofc more expencive so I didn’t have lot of pics. I was unable to locate the opening pics as physical copies, I should have had them, but maybe I lost them on some point when moving. So here is what we got:


Both


Cornice


Raphia
