August Tsukifly updates

Hello hello ~

SAM_6545

Here is a piece of little Mina (Aileendoll Camellia) dreaming outside.

August updates have been added to Tsukifly Etsy shop as I have just finished several pieces. I still have too many on my table to “be finished” and I will get there at some point. So far I am really happy with new designs and I am hoping they will turn out to be functional Mix & Match pieces. Rein seems to approve as she has been a great model.

Sharp eyed may have spotted preview pictures from Instagram for some of these pieces. First I have finished two pairs of Tsukifly brassieres. Colors do contrast each other as I wanted to have both “black and white” options available to start with. I am rather happy how they turned out. Fit is good and inside lining creates kind of push-up effect, more than when there is no inside lining.

 

These two designs have now been added to Etsy. Both close with hook and eye closures. Rein has M-bust which to my understanding is quite close to many mature SD bust sizes.

Secondly there are two designs of Tsukifly Summer Tops. I have several designs on my table still waiting to be finished. These are out now. Baby blue checkered summer top and a floral beige summer top with lace tie-around neck detail. Available at Etsy. In addition I shall update the listing later on as I finish more designs.

 

 

Few short bloomers have found their way to Etsy as well. Best fit for Dust of Dolls but also great on tiny sized dolls. For example under a skirt. Find them here.

Those three new listings are the new things. Otherwise I feel like I need to consider the styles of my girls again. It seems some of them didn’t turn out as I hoped with the new dresses and wigs. Well ^^; not always it goes as planned. We shall see.

February update

Look! I am keeping to my set schedule with these updates.

So, straight to the updates and news.

Tsukifly Etsy Shop : Some of the older designs have been added to Etsy. So far those include Tsukifly Bunny hats (in various sizes) as well as few flower bands and two short skirts for SD size. A bit of variation already, but I should say more is to come.

New sizes : I have few visiting models. Firstly A Dust of Dolls Spün, Bubbla and secondly, Konomi, a Leekeworld Kiko with a curious DollLeeke Art Volume Body. So perhaps these visiting models get me to try out something in different sizes a bit. Thirdly a lovely Lillycat Cerisedolls Ellana, Freya arrived to fill in the gap for this curious size. Something in this size has already been tested by now so read further to discover what exactly.

New designs : Previous post was about winds of relocation and I have a feeling this one is about winds of new ideas or something such. It was probably not very innovative to go for a corset design as my first try out in Lillycat Cerisedolls size. I have seen corsets around quite a lot. But, my thing is probably the usage of certain style/patterned fabrics.

Additionally I decided to make the first two corsets without inside lining in order to make the pieces in less time and available with lower price (less working hours = lower price in this case). My aim being that these corsets are still durable and look cute even without inside lining and are (at least in my opinion!) great for any Lillycat girl to wear.

More corset designs are likely to come, the two first ones were to test the pattern and a more thick fabric, whereas the following try out will be from a different kind of fabric so we shall see if this requires some alternative measures.

These two are likely to be available through Etsy once I have time to complete their listing (pictures and description).

Overall I must say I am satisfied to the pattern and its functionality and fitting. Perhaps next to come are some skirt designs, a dress and bloomers in this size. Still a lot of work to be done with those though!

You may also see a glimpse of a shawl type design (how to name it?) on Freya (in light green color) but the pattern needs quite a lot of adjusting. I think it looks cute like this as well so perhaps more about it later.

I have also completed a kind of outfit set in Dust of Dolls size, it comes with a short shirt with lace lining and bloomers made out of some patterned fabric. I couldn’t resist the big ribbon… This first try is rather a bright combination, I try to make the second so that it will look less striking.

It seems I have taken a different approach into the making process of the Tsukifly clothing pieces. The use of patterns has increased whereas before I worked largely without any patterns. But since some designs are such that they are made in different colors multiple times over, the use of patterns make it a lot easier. Although I must say, to keep the design philosophy of Tsukifly, that each piece will still be OOAK (one of a kind), either in size or in fabrics/other details. Thus 100% similar design will not be made again.

All in all I am happy that I have found the time to complete these new pieces and I hope to adjust them further to make them fit even better. More updates will follow later.

If any of the new designs are specifically to your liking or you wish to inquire whether something similar could be made in different color etc. you are welcome to contact me and we may discuss the possibilities.  

 

 

Winds of relocation

The feeling when several things are happening at once.

For Tsukifly the year 2016 seems to be a year of transformation. Since Tsukifly’s official establishment in May 2013 the brand has experienced more active periods as well as periods of total silence. As Tsukifly creations are directly connected to it’s creator’s situation in life, the less active periods are those with high professional / study activity. The balance has finally been found (more or less) so that neither the professional life or the Tsukifly would need to be left completely on its own.

As a platform for Tsukifly blog I have now decided to go for WordPress.com and thus I will cease to update the old Tsukifly blog previously located at blogspot. I find WordPress blog easier to customize, maintain and review.

tsukiflyI stated my ambitious plan to update the blog at least once a month along with at least one new creation. Looking at my design plans I can promise that sizes will vary, materials will vary and each dress set will be OOAK. I will include my doll related planning among the posts about Tsukifly so that this blog willc continue to be about dolls in general, my plans related to them and Tsukifly designs.

Even before this first blog post at Worldpress, I took another leap of faith and established the long planned Etsy shop for Tsukifly. Therefore Tsukifly at Etsy is now a reality and I intend to update the shop regularly with new designs. Please note that regarding the Tsukifly creations I may also be contacted elsewhere before I can make them available at Etsy in which case certain OOAK sets may never appear in Etsy. Thus, if you are interested in something please contact me.

Airy dress set for tiny/YO-SD (now at Etsy) is the newest creation of Tsukifly. The set includes the dress with cute details and a flower headpiece. A pattern fabric bloomers are also a new piece made last weekend, the same size appears to fit tiny/Yo-sd, Dust of Dolls and Minifee sized dolls. Similar bloomers will be seen as a part of Tsukifly designs as well as a separate mix & match piece. I am also in the process of making a functional design for SD, Cerisedolls and Supergem sized dolls.

If you wish to know more about Tsukifly and the doll family (the dolls that appear as Tsukifly models) please take a look at the ‘About Me‘ page. While I am generally not very good at updating anything I intent to keep this page up-to-date. The doll family has experienced some changes over the years as my plans for the dolls have changed. I am also determined to keep the size of my collection at around 10. However, if you do not find information and you would like to know something, about a specific doll or a piece of clothing etc. please contact me and I will be happy to tell you more.

This is pretty much everything for the first blog post in this new location. Rather general recap of everything to start with. Following this blog post any new updates will now start to appear here from this day onward. I would thus recommend the followers of the blogspot blog to update their bookmarks.
