So I'm going through the Kaye Wiggs bug at the moment. Totally obsessed, looking only at KW dolls on Flickr, scouring every marketplace I can find for dolls for sale and reading as much info about them on the net as I can. This for me, is just as much fun as actually buying a doll. 

Then I got to thinking that I totally forget about all the other beautiful dolls I already have. So I'm setting myself a little challenge. I am going to take a photo each week of each and every one of my dolls. I must change their clothes, try a different wig and eyes (because it's too easy to just take them off the shelf as is and take a few snaps). I think this will be a good way to reignite my doll love and hopefully a good way of sorting through clothes, wigs and shoes etc. Some pics might be taken with my phone and some with my big camera, what ever I feel like or have time for on the day. 

I feel like I've lost a bit of my creative edge lately, haven't felt very inspired by anything. Time to change that, I'm definitely happier if I'm creating something.  

The last couple of weeks it's been all about my new girl (KW Blue Koneko) Clara. I took a couple of pics of her in the garden and she is wearing a beautiful little dress by Lillilace that I bought probably a year ago and it's sat in a box waiting for the right doll to wear it. 

Its weird because I never really paid much attention to Koneko when I first got into KW dolls a couple of years ago. It was all about fair skin human Miki back then, I wanted her so bad but never got her and then sort of forgot about them. Then I saw a pc of Koneko by Nimrod Masquerade I think her username is on flick and I thought wow she is amazing! I loved her eyes and mouth and the blue skin was so perfect for her. As if it was meant to be I looked at DoA marketplace and there for sale was a Blue Koneko. I put her on layaway and was a bit worried that when I did get her home I wouldn't like her but I couldn't have been more wrong. I don't think I realised just how lucky I was to find this girl on the secondary marketplace. Obviously I do now and she is just so precious to me.

A tale of four Tobi's

Kaye Wiggs Tobi is the sculpt that is pulling at my heart and purse strings at the moment. But which resin colour to order. If I won lotto I would have all four because they are all simply delicious in their own right. 
Now I've just got wind that there will be a handful of fair and sun kissed Tobi's at Jpop dolls at the end of the week, left overs from the pre order. I do love the fair skin because of the freckles, sun kissed is also gorgeous but I've ordered a sun kissed Miki and I need to be disciplined about how many of these dolls I collect, so the plan is not to have more than one of the same skin colour or sculpt. But damn look how gorgeous these dolls are! 
I adore the grey skin but she has just had a preorder with sun kissed Miki and I ordered Miki and of course now I want Tobi too! Hopefully there will be some leftover grey Tobi's when the dolls are all shipped out (August/September). I also love how dark wigs and brightly coloured wigs go so well with the grey skin and the face up on the grey skin looks pretty. 
The dark skin one is devine, I think she is coming up for preorder later in the year. Well I thought writing it all out might help me make sense of it all but it hasn't I still want all of them!!!!! LOL

It's been that long?

Wow I haven't been here in like forever! 

Time flies when you're having fun I guess lol. 

Current new love is my Kaye Wiggs Blue Koneko. 

Absolutely smitten with this doll. My first ever Kaye Wiggs doll. I was surprised at how big she is is, I expected MSD size and she is more like SD size, a smidge smaller and slimmer. Her resin is almost wax like, translucent, so lovely and smooth and her face up is to die for. Love love love! Yep I'm a happy camper :o)

Minifee Celine, who I'd had on layby arrived and promptly left this week. I should have known me and a Minifee wouldn't work. She was lovely, just not for me. Anyway she went to a new home pretty much as soon as I uploaded her pic to Flickr so that worked out nicely. Just need to sell my Volks Yo Linn now.
