Summer turning towards Autumn

Hiya everyone!

It has been a rather hot summer, even in Finland. My solution was to seek lower weather temperatures from Northern Finland but I am afraid I did not succeed in that very well. It appeared to be even more hot there during the time I was around… Oh well. I had a wonderful summer holiday in any case. Although, I must admit I didn’t get much done. I say it was because of the weather, lack of materials around and all the other stuff taking my time. So now is time to settle back home and concentrate on sewing and planning.

I did manage to do some doll related things for my own girls. They have been somewhat neglected for quite a while. Just to see how much I managed to create the following list:

freyamani

  1. Freya (Lillycat Ellana) got a lovely upper body blush and manicure. I absolutely love how she is more lively. A big thanks to my friend who assisted with her blushing and got me around doing it.
  2. Yuiko (Unoa Elder Ange) got the same treatment as Freya. I have been eyeing on her hands ever since she arrived and finally got around to do something for them. Tiny remnants of some red color really bothered me between her nails. Leftovers of her previous “life”.
  3. Junia (Soom Minigem Juchy) got a lovely blushing on her wings and fairy legs. I need to search for tiny S-hooks to get her legs on, in the mean time I enjoy seeing her with just those gorgeous wings. I don’t think the first try own made mohair wig looks all that bad either. So cute little fairy I have ^-^
  4. Mili arrived (Soom Picro) and she also has a gorgeous blushing, her fantasy parts shaded with yellow. I got around naming her. I am still undecided as to her style and wig but time will show. Her name comes from a specific coral name in Latin.

So I think I have done something with my own dolls. More than usual at least. Now I want to take pictures of them. So will be spamming flickr, instagram and this blog.

Above few pictures of Mili as I took her outside. And yes, I would like to do the same with all my dolls but who knows when I will get around to do it…

Etsy shop has new additions in Dust of Dolls size. Night Dust dress (picture 1 from left), Yellow violet polkadot bloomers (picture 2) and a combo picture of all three dress additions for Dust of Dolls over the summer. Check both Mix & Match and Dust of Dolls sections to find the above from Tsukifly Etsy.

Other new additions include a walolita styled outfit set for Unoa / MNF / Slim mini sized dolls modeled here by Yuiko (Unoa Elder Ange). The outfit consists of two parts, Kimono styled shirt ending above belly and a high-waist skirt with tiny details in front. The skirt is made by using the pattern also available through Etsy. Dress set here and the pattern here.

Then we have Riri (Pureneemo Aika) who is showing off the pureneemo/Blythe/Pullip outfit set which comes with a Tsukifly diamond deer band. Take a further look here.

To be expected // Coming Soon

Now I am working on a Pullip custom, she will be available I hope at the end of August. Currently planning her wig and outfit. Just completed a nice box for her.

There will be a set of different sized simple petticoats made from a golden tulle coming in later this month.

I am also working on a sale post to be posted on this blog. Just to keep track of all the second hand dolly stuff I have for sale. It will be easier for you to see them as well. I will also have separate sale post for some of the items on different Forums, Facebook and Intagram. Btw, if you would like to add me as a friend on Facebook, you can find me with ID Sofia Tsukifly.

December recap

Or can I call this a recap while this December is only half way through?

It has been a productive month. There are changes in my personal life so there has been some extra time to use for sewing projects. So happy about that fact. I also feel that while it has been somewhat quiet for quite a while when I speak about dolly plans I have also lots going on there. Plans, story updates, style updates. Dolly hobby is periodic at present.

Not too many flattering pictures of Unoa Elder girls in Google picture search. Apparently enough to hook me though. Not that Google was ever the sole place to look for dolly pictures. I have had this little plan of Ange for quite a while now. And my wishes had been heard! Now I have one on layaway. Her name will be Yuiko (thoughtful child) and she is an apprentice witch. Initial plan is to make her something colorful yet dark while her wig will be pastel cute. However, it would not be the first time when a doll turns into something completely different once she arrives so I cannot say for sure. Let’s wait and see. She is scheduled to come around in Spring ~

Then Tsukifly updates.

Starting with two Vintage cardigans in SD and DD sizes, made out of lovely vintage knitted fabric with vintage lace details. I am pleased with the outcome and they are a great addition with any Tsukifly dress as well.

Tsukifly Vintage White Cardigands

Second in line is a one-piece vintage time keeper dress for SD.¬† I have had “raw” sketch of this dress on a mannequin for ages. It really has taken way too long to complete but I amSAMSUNG CSC pleased how it turned out. A combo of embroidered off-white lace, light blue taffeta, brown polka dot fabric and vintage laces and bow ties. A clock necklace will be included with the dress.

Last but not least on the list are probably my personal favorites of the month. Diamond deer flower headbands. This patch on Etsy includes 2 tiny/slim mini sized, 2 MSD/Lillycat sized and 1 bigger Pullip / SD / Blythe sized headdresses. They are so cute and delicate. I just need more paper flowers for any future plans, these ate my last ones on storage.

*Update* Tsukifly Custom Pullip Akiko

I felt the candy set didn’t quite match with Akiko so I completed a better suited¬†outfit set to go with her. With fully and lively Japanese themed dress and accessories she would be an an unique addition to any Pullip family. Find the updated listing here.

So to recap, a lot of new updates, additions and great fun in making all of these. Thank you everyone for your continuing support!

I must also make a small note on one of my lovely buyers who was kind enough to send me a picture of her doll wearing a Tsukifly coat bought through Etsy shop. The styling in the picture was wintery and receiving it really made my day. Thank you!

I believe that is almost everything for now. Next wee I will travel towards North for Christmas and I have pretty strong feeling no new blog entries will be made for this year. Please do keep an eye on Instagram as I am more likely to update few Christmas theme pictures around there ~
