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 ~

Summer with style updates

For an unknown reason I am having a style crisis over my girls. It seems to be a trend now. It happens every now and then. Few of them are missing that something, be that the right wig, eyes, clothing or something else. I am trying to figure out something new for each of them but it is not that easy. Especially when you don’t quite know what you would like them to have. If only there would be a possibility to test a box of wigs or eyes etc. to better get the idea. With my limited supply, nope. All I can do is to draw my ideas on paper or otherwise visualize.

For the summer I have gone through my dolly closet so I am going to post a separate album on Flickr for the sale stuffs. I have also considered a blog post with the details so will see which I consider a better option in the end. There will be those other things not suitable for my girls’ style or those I have leftovers in wrong sizes as I am going to make some style changes for them.

SAMSUNG CSCLunetta got a white dress. Together the dress and a separate lace skirt form a bell shaped dress combo. She could wear more striking stockings, go with white white lace stockings for more bridal look or choose black as she has chosen to do. Endless possibilities when the dress in itself is not too outstanding.

Those hand cuffs pictured with the dress are among new additions to Etsy. With them I have added a collection of total of 20 necklaces done over the years. There has not been proper pictures taken of them until now so I am pleased I finally got that done. Certain special design will be posted in separate listings later on. Have a closer look on the jewellery collection here.

Freya's Summer Dress set

Summer dress set design for Lillycat: One-piece dress, bolero, lace stockings.

 Freya’s summer dress set

I don’t think I have taken any proper picture of Freya’s summer dress set. So finally here it is. I have reused one of the short corsets previously completed, added the skirt part for it and she already had the accessories and lace stockings.

Freya and Lunetta were the first ones to get their styles updated. While Freya is pretty much completed, Lunetta is still missing eyes / wig side of the whole. In progress.

Some of you may know I have made quite a stock of flower head bands as well. With different details and sizes. The same situation as with jewellery was that there has not been any completed collection pictures of the designs. Along with jewellery I ended up doing that update as well. Although those pictures are still in progress – a lot of them to process through – few updated pictures here.

They tolerate gentle bending and there will be sizes from tiny all the way to SD/Pullip/Blythe available through Etsy. Keep checking back there. Previously there were only few SD sized designs pictured. Thus, a bigger selection for the coming summer.

While going through the stock I also came across this cotton candy / cute style skirt set available on Etsy. I thought having a picture on the mannequin might help to show off the skirt. If only I had a girl with such a style I would like to keep this myself!
