Massive updating all around

It is just like the headline says. Over the last week I have taken time to update Tsukifly Etsy. Mainly tried to take some photos and read through texts and shop policies. So everything is up to date. I remember saying it was one of my objectives to finish some of the in progress – dresses as well. See below for some of those projects:)

A package from my dear friend!! <3 ^^

A package from my dear friend!! ‚̧ ^^

I recently got a package containing a lot of wonderful stuffs for making customs, clothing and of course tea things to keep me going while I work ~ Riri (pureneemo girl) was there to invade box opening pictures. You can also maybe better see the Kimono style outfit set I made for her a while back. Poor girl had no clothes when she came! ^^;

Okay. So this Pureneemo girl didn’t previously have any name either. No clothes and no name… Sounds serious. But it is all fixed now! She appears to have adopted the name Riri. So I suppose I can say she is now officially part of the family ^^ I really should get around taking some family photos at some point ~

There wasn’t enough light anywhere to help me by the time I finished everything yesterday. But I shall update once again as the situation around here changes (light wise).

Those are the two new Pullip/Blythe/Pureneemo outfits available at Etsy. The Vintage Nightie can also fit for Soom Faery / Minigems. Junia here with it. Although on her its length is a bit over knees and not full-length as with Pureneemo/Blythe/Pullip bodies ūüôā

Then the outfit set I first made for Akiko’s fullset but later ended up changing Akiko’s style into more Asian direction. Therefore I am now offering the original fullset outfit for sale separately. With this I have experimented few styles and different fabrics and materials. I must say I am

quite pleased what comes to the outcome. Read more comprehensive description and find more pics from the Candy Girl Etsy listing.

One of the long term in progress dresses was a vintage MSD dress set. The upper part was originally part of another set but as the other parts were sold, this inspired me to use the recycled lovely embroidered piece of fabric I had around in my boxes. Topped with tulle, delicate vintage lace and little star details around the upper tulle skirt this is a truly unique one of a kind set surely not found elsewhere. Take a further look here: Tsukifly Vintage Line: Vintage stars MSD dress and also for some more pictures ~

There are quite a lot on the table so another update coming soon ^-^!

2018 January is here ~!

Hello hello ~!

The new year has started rolling and agenda is full of new ideas to try out. Including colors, lots of lace, ribbons and bow ties and of course some black and white to balance out.

Tsukifly New year’s promises: 1) In 2018 I will focus on making more complete outfit sets in different sizes. 2) I shall make at least one new listing every month on Etsy.

For January that 1 new listing target has been reached as Dark Seamstress dress set in SD/DD size was added on Etsy yesterday. I have been finishing these in progress SD/DD dresses as my priority for now. Last month the time keeper and now the dark seamstress. I am pleased they both are now completed.

 

Dark Seamstress was inspired by various little sewing related details I have sewn into the dress set. Most of them around the layered upper skirt and on the arm band. The set has 7 parts and it can be warn by various SD / DD sized dolls. Hisa (Volks Lorina) has been acting diligently as my model ~

I have been meaning to try out making an alpaca wig for Junia (Soom Juchy). She has been wearing her default for far too long. She would also need some new clothes as he dress she is now is far too dark for her. I am rather pleased what comes to wig. Especially as this is my first try in making one. Such a lovely alpaca hair in just right color ~! It came out a lot fluffier than I perhaps intended but no harm done. Now I certainly have some extra for few little braids. The wig size of Soom faery tends to be tricky too, so this way you are sure to get a wig that fits ^-^

I have been making more diamond deer headbands. First batch with slightly rosy color diamonds is currently on Etsy. Later will have another batch with slightly violet color diamonds, so keep an eye on the updates. Freya (Lillycat Ellana) is such a pretty lady with her new Leekeworld wig. I just love those blue stripes ~

What is coming next? I will complete new dresses in Yo-Sd size (two in progress). Additionally I am working on a Pullip dress set and few commissions so we shall see what is the schedule of new things for Etsy.

Thank you for your support!

November greetings

I wonder how I have managed to forget how fun it is to make photoshoot set-ups, take photos of my dear dolls and see how the pictures turn out (especially nice if the photos turn out nicely, although not always the case ^^;)

In any case I think I have rediscovered the joy of that aspect of the doll hobby. The only things I am lacking is generally the time and as the winter is knocking on the door, the natural light. So I need to adjust to the yellow and warm light emitted by the the various lamps scattered around my little personal nest.

During the weekend I took a “proper” photoshoot (which I haven’t done for a very long time) and the reason was to get some pictures of the Vintage Bunny set, now available on Etsy. However, few pictures really surprised me, including the fact that Tori fits in well with those vintage pieces (grandma’s old lamp, tiny picture frame and an old decorative pillow). Nothing particularly specially in the pictures but I just felt so happy. So much so I just want to mention it here as well.

One of the photoshoot pictures (few more on Flickr). The set includes four pieces (vintage corset, bloomers, bunny headdress and black lace stockings) with an option to include that cute fluffy Bukowski bear (an angel bear!) with the set.

I have also made a mess of my table yet again. I have finished a new custom Pullip. She got orange eyes with star pupils and clear glass domes. Super cute with Leekeworld carrot wig and mocha skin color. Pretty pleased with the face-up too. Only thing left is to finish her dress, working on it now although somehow slow progress. Or I just feel so as I do many things at the same time (multitasking o_o)? (read more below).

There is also this Tsukifly Autumn knitted scarf. I completed it over the last weekend, just got around to take the pictures. The model is my Aya (Luts Soo Dark Elf) and I just love how she looks in these winter garments. She is also wearing a Tsukifly cat hat. Ready for a winter outing? Can I make the snow fall from the sky for this picture?

Outline of the month:

  • Vintage Bunny MSD set – ok
  • Knitted scarf – ok
  • Pullip custom full set Akiko – mocha skin – ok

So I am pretty happy of the outcome.¬† And I won’t even start on those sd dresses I am working on…

Tsukifly Custom Pullip Akiko

Continuing from above. She is now completed, finally. Named as Akiko, autumn’s child to reflect the time but also her colors. Cute and delicious combination goes well with her mocha skin although I must say I am not too happy with the light in the listing pictures. If the weather is already gloomy outside, the available light is even less than the usual. I need to figure out some solution for that.

Nevertheless, she is precious little girl up for adoption. Her OOAK dress consists of three pieces, headpiece (pink bow ties on top of each others), upper part and a frosted skirt part. I kinda feel the dress could be edible, candy colors – pink & white. She will come with a glass jar, where there are small red stones (look like candies?). These stones have holes in the middle so they are also suitable for grafting should you wish to use them.

I hope you like the new Etsy updates and thank you for the support for Tsukifly!

Cornflowers and plywood

Hello everyone =^^=!

I somehow feel I am kind of repeating myself by saying there are lots of unfinished projects on the table, this and that needs to be done etc. I shall still go through by introducing new updates / products but also I shall increase doll photos while I still have natural light before the dark that is lurking as the winter is approaching (the natural phenomenon here in Finland every year).

Etsy Updates РTsukifly 

Let’s start with the updates. I have been hinting about this basket before and finally got around to take the pictures, to measure and finish the text for it. So it is now available in Etsy. I had some lovely cornflowers growing in my little herb box and some of them were now used for the photos.

The basket is suitable for both MSD and SD sized dolls but I would still say perhaps better in scale for SDs. Vanamo (Volks Kurumi) and Lunetta (Souldoll Aehael) as my models here.

Another thing is this tiny summer straw hat. Cornflowers got in these pictures too. After all its rarely you get to use lovely flowers in the pictures. This straw hat is small, for 4-5 inch heads such as Soom faeries (my minigem Juchy, Junia as a model) and Lillycat Chibbi as well as Pureneemos (tested). The hat is loose for the head so there are generally some room for different poses. The hat can be found from here.

Thoughts about Vanamo (Volks Kurumi)

I feel Vanamo is doing well with her white wig and those eyes with seashell details. Still¬†SAMSUNG CSCcan’t quite believe how that face-up turned out so well straight out. Vanamo happens to be the only one of my girls with a face-up made by myself. So I suppose I am proud of the outcome. Her story is still a bit of a mystery, she was sort of an unplanned purchase ^^;

Originally I just wanted her to be the one girl who could pull off an overly cute pink style, sweet lolita etc.

I am plotting a story which would bring depth into her character. Different from my girls she is part of the “real” world instead of the fantasy worlds. You might think it would be easy to come up with the character when the playground is kind of the world you live in yourself… Not quite.

More about this project as I progress with her ~

Summer dolly meet-up

Summer meet-up report

Plans to have a doll party/meet-up with some special fruit juice (by me with elderflower and frozen strawberries) and other lovely edible things finally materialized. The serving itself, even if important to some degree, wasn’t the primary thing. It was all the wonderful people who came to the meet-up with their lovely girls (bjds and pureneemos alike).

From my crew there were Junia (Soom Juchy) and Hisa (Volks Lorina) .

At the beginning of the day I must admit I was concerned over the weather (after all the plan was to be outside). And this quite a strong wind had done some damage around my courtyard. It was a mess (more or less) and the wind was still blowing quite hard. Luckily the wind started to ease down by the noon time.

Two storeys of bjds and pureneemos divided in their respective camps. Unfortunately we are missing Xaya‘s little pureneemo cuties as she needed to leave a bit earlier.SAM_6261Pureneemos are so cute (u_u) I feel I might be in trouble again. Sherimi’s Lisanna was also so sweet, it was nice to see her. And all three miyadolls were so adorable together. I feel the size, being in between YoSD and MSD could be a handy one to have. They were like YoSDs¬†stretched. Little Mocha Tory with open mouth @_@ ~

Such a fun day! ~ Thank you again everyone!

Lorinas

My Hisa and Shara’s (Fyrd8th) Eiko together. Lorina power ~!

PS. More about the meet-up can be read and seen from Tiinyan‘s and Sherimi‘s blogs ~

Tsukifly’s Midsummer air

It is almost midsummer in Finland. The day when sun does not set and bonfires are lit all across the country for the celebration of summer solstice. Extra excited as I haven’t been around for a while to see those but this year I plan to explore around. (Check more about Finnish midsummer).

It would appear my activity with my blog posts has increased somewhat. Having a bit of extra time helps. Summer holiday later might work against this fact as the access to internet may be hindered – cottage visits etc. to be expected.

New Arrival

That phrase bring to my mind the song scene from Tim Burton’s Corpse Bride. If you have seen the movie you know why. Not perhaps in the same way a new arrival but my girl crew has got a new addition. She is Centaur version Aehael from Souldoll. One which managed to convince me through the screen. I wasn’t entirely prepared to get anything new but sometimes you are not quite successful in fighting back…

Her name is Lunetta.il_fullxfull.1042213227_3ltl

A girl born out of an unusual union of a faun and a unicorn. Cast aside by her faun community for being too different, her appearance taken after her father, the unicorn. Considered as scary and odd according to some of the community members. Whispering to trees and  weaving braids of flowers she bears her loneliness in her own way. Until an adventurous elf girl appears on a meadow where she sings.

The beginning of her story may sound sad but I assure you, things start to improve¬†after a certain individual appears. Lunetta’s only friend until that moment has been a magical deer¬†Elafi. Being¬†a young one herself, Elafi does not always have the brightest of ideas to go around to which Lunetta can have a hearty laugh once in a while.

Still thinking over her outfit. For now it is a combination of many pieces I have had in my closet. Basically everything that is not black i.e. Tori’s clothing is on her for the time being. Rather a functional outcome I would say. During the weekend I had a productive period to make few complete dress sets for Etsy. The first one of those is the set she models above¬†Alice within Alice¬†-set with a pink Alice patterned dress and 3 additional pieces. The outcome is rather a Cinderella housemaid, but she looks cute.

It is a challenge to find her a wig that is of right size. She has smaller than average MSD head which means she is more like a Unoa/MNF than MSD. Thus she also wears YoSD/Tiny sized wigs which I do not have too many extras. We shall see. Or then she will end of having a collection of everything I have around.

The other complete dress set is filled with lace, it is a two-piece set, made with a ballerina in mind. I used quite many hours for details. More about it in my next monthly post including pictures and an Etsy link.

2nd Tsukifly Pullip custom

SAMSUNG CSC

Tsukifly Custom Pullip √Čclair

Having already mentioned about the possibility of a new custom may I present √Čclair.¬†She is a Mocha skin Pullip with a complete outfit with pinkish theme. Her outfit consists of a knee-length one-piece dress with details and a pair of cute pink shoes with bunny ears. She will also come with a contrasting long light-blue wig and mystery headpiece to complement the dress (not pictured). Find her from Tsukifly Etsy Shop!

√Čclair was my first experience with a Mocha skin Pullip and I must say I really like the tone of her skin. It was fun to make her a face-up after a long pause. I still have certain painting / face-upping things missing. The search continues.

The 3rd Tsukifly Custom will be something around the keywords: white and bunny. A wig, eyes and certain other parts of her outfit are already around. Now should consider her face-up a bit.

 

Overall many projects have been completed this month. More or less. Next month may be less active due to the reasons already mentioned above. In any case a monthly update will be sure the be there.

 

 

Monthly update: May

I am back with both Pullip and BJD related news.

Glad to share with you that Sarinna (First Tsukifly custom pullip set) has found a new owner and encouraged by this I have sketched new plans for at least two new customs in the future. Themes for them are water and fluffy (I am aware these do not reveal very much..). However, first on the list is to acquire certain things for them before proceeding further.

saringoodbye

I had a pleasure of completing a commission outfit for a Pullip. Colors included brown and white combination with lace details. Personally I am happy how it turned out with all its details. Later on it might just pop around as a part of a set.

Highlight of the week was when my dear friend Solarsenshi¬†came to visit in Finland! Besides having a wonderful time (Thank you dear!) we had a meet-up and interesting food experiences. I received amazing gifts as well. So cute! My wish included¬†Haagsche Hopjes, those wonderful coffee candies from the Hague (I am finally able to fill their respective box). Super happy about everything. Really cute flower dress in SD size will fit most of my girls and will be great for the coming summer – I think I have a matching straw hat somewhere… Few pairs of amazingly detailed (and so small!) Pullip sSAMSUNG CSChoes!

 

 

Souldoll is taking ages (or it certainly feels like it) as I would be happy to receive my new MSD model home right about now. Not even sure if the whole of the waiting time has already elapsed (probably not) but somehow the waiting feels loooong. It has been a while since I have waited for a doll straight from a company… Her name will be¬†Lunetta but it remains to be seen how she will fit in with my other girls.

Other updates: A Soom Sweet Witch (Grey skin) and Fairyland Minifee Mio (Normal Skin) are actively searching for new homes (through Den of Angels) as they do not seem to find their place within the crew. Freya is in need for a wig that would be in the right size. Vanamo got a super cute bunny cape and there is a lovely milk wig for some future plans.

I updated pictures of some of the Tsukifly headbands. Perfect for a complete summer look. Some of the pieces are available through Etsy, more will be added later.

To come: I will update few random shots of my girls later. To make a sort of introduction to their current looks. There is also a commission for Leekeworld Art body in progress… Inspirational times. Few ideas for accessories I need to try out…

Thank you for reading!
