Snowy February

At least in Finland. We had over 30 cm of snow coming in all of a sudden. A small challenge for cars and people. I on the other hand had much fun jumping over snowbanks. Although little precarious ice lurking under…

TSUKIFLY

What is going on with Tsukifly? A lot. Active period. Several Etsy listings have got one or more updated pictures. I hope those will give you even better idea of the products and their details.

As I have been able to dedicate more time for sewing and updates I am pleased to see the improvement myself. I am grateful and it makes me happy to be able to do these things. Such a pleasure. Anyway. I must say I am really looking forward to snow / increasing natural light as the spring is slowly coming.

Patterns – Available – As instant download PDF file – by Tsukifly. And it is still hard for me to understand I have finally made it. Thank you for your patience! The first pattern available is for a cute 1-2 hour DIY project knee-length Pullip/Blythe/Pureneemo skirt.

Overly cute white fleece winter coat for Tiny / Yo-SD sized dolls. Just added on Etsy today. I have been wanting to try out some funky shapes for ages.

I came across a perfect piece of white fleece over the winter holidays and worked with my hands (On the road -travelling – you don’t have access to a sewing machine). Details SAMSUNG CSCare made with minty ribbons going around with white bead details. The same minty ribbon is also used in several bow ties and in front the coat has three rows of ribbons. You are required to tie them as bow ties to close the coat on the front side.

Best fit would be for Soom Tiny and similar sized dolls. For Mina [Aileendoll Camellia] the coat is a bit too big. Looking cute nevertheless ^^!

I have just listed it on Etsy at the same time with this blog post. Find the warm white fleece coat here.

Overview of the current (coming in near future) in progress – list: Lillycat turquoise lace dress set, Tiny lace dress and 8-9 inch SD/Lillycat/DD colors of snow – knitted hat & scarf set. In addition I am also working on three dress sets for SD/DD sizes with several pieces, one of those is Vintage Line.

So, as you see, many things going on and coming in. I am having a boost in sewing.

I also want to thank all those who have purchased my products and/or commissioned me. It is amazing support I have received and it is all worth it because of you!

PS. If you are considering to adopt a custom Pullip girl, Tsukifly custom Pullips Akiko and Papillon are available on Etsy. If purchased during this weekend (3-4 Feb) you have chance to receive the package just in time for Valentine’s Day (together with a suprise Valentine’s present)!

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 🙂

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 ^-^!

Halloween mummies?

HAPPY HORRIBLE HALLOWEEN for Everyone!

SAMSUNG CSC

What happened with new designs and a bjd Halloween outfit? It is likely my plans will not be made in time this year either. Maybe if I start early next year I will make it in time? I wonder how everything seems to pile up just when you are suppose to make something for some specific time…

Lately I have been able to work on my sewing projects only during weekends. Due to other pressing matters and studies/exams also the time during those weekends has been less than usual. The result is as you see.

But! I have had a wonderful time completing a clothing custom outfit in Pullip size. Many of the patterns needed special consideration, the small size being a challenge. Now the whole outfit has been finished and shipped off. Especially the front of the winter jacket was to my liking. Functional although it did require some concessions from the original design. Conclusion: I enjoyed this particular commission very much!

As you see I have an unusual Halloween mascot for this blog post. A mummy? And very unhalloweenlike set-up… Its too white. And where are all the dark, scary and shady stuff? Witches, broomsticks and bats. Black cats with piercing yellow eyes!

Last week I was pleasently surprised by a package sent by my dear from all the way from Asia. Thank you so much dear! This little one (still without a name), apparently my first Pureneemo (=^^=!), was found from the inside along with all the other amazing things including snacks, tea and refills for my pens<3~

I am planning a photoshoot with the new girl and Mella. Although I do admit that she would need a name and something proper to wear (roll bandage) is hardly a proper outfit…

I did a comparison of different 3:15PM milk tea flavors sometime before (check the previous post) and now I have few new flavors to add. Found from this amazing package

I received! This 3:15PM restock included these three flavors:

pala

Milk Tea Table – a comparison table 

Okinawa Brown Sugar Milk Tea (3:15 PM) – Distinct flavor. Strong caramel like odour / flavor, suppose its a result from the brown sugar? No idea whether hibiscus flowers are just for the show…

Fruity Rose Flavor Milk Tea (3:15 PM) – Most flower like flavor. Sweet but not too much. And I must say this is my favorite out of all 3:15PM milk teas I have tasted so far~

Sun Moon Lake Milk Tea (3:15 PM) – Sweetest flavor of these three. Flowerlike taste. Reminds me of the 3:15 PM Rose flavor (above) still a bit more sweeter.

It is soon time for my montly update so I will leave info regarding Etsy updates into that post. Keep your eyes open for it! Coming up soon~

 

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 ~

(Mid)summer time

Hello hello! ~

After a little bit cold Midsummer in Central Finland I have returned with some sales items. I was able to catch up with some of my old stuffs – pullip / blythe sized food things and some barbie furniture which I have been meaning to take photos of to post them up for sale. Fully equipped kitchen set, some random food supplies, bed with linen and so on. Further details still need to be sorted out for sales. Perfect for your Pullip kitchen plan?Papillon de nuit there as a size comparison ~

I have also mentioned few unfinished project dresses. Finally they have been completed and now up on Etsy.

First is the Pullip / pureneemo / Blythe sized turquoise summer dress. Paper flower details, tulle, lace and pearls. Base dress is made out of satine like turquoise fabric.

Next one is layered dress for Pullips (and will also fit Blythe / pureneemo). The dress has three parts, lace under top, tulle upper skirt with japanese fabric decorative waist part and light beige lace under skirt. The dress will come with a flower headband. Perfect for the lovely summer.

Turquoise summer dress and layered dress are both now on Etsy.

With this lovely summer day I took Chai Latte outside and updated some Etsy pictures.

Azone Pureneemos

I kind of decided previously I would not fall for these cuties. But guess what? They are too adorable to avoid and I have had hard time resisting… I still persist but for how long?

My best “excuse” for not to get one has been the fact that Mella, my tanned Blythe girl, has a pureneemo body. Thus, I wouldn’t need one for sewing. However, Mella is tricky to pose for the model pictures and has her own style as to what kind of clothing she inspires me to sew. So the excuse is falling apart as reasons to get a pureneemo of my own are starting to fill in on the list.

After Saturday’s mini meet-up with some amazingly cute Sahra cat versions (pastel pink and blue) I may have wandered off to those “off-limits” sites of which I was specifically warned about. Don’t you easily go for what has explicitly been prohibited? Yesss…

memWhat models? 

My Top 3 list at the moment includes Himeno, Alisa and Mia. The first two have such a smiling face that you instantly feel happy to look at them. Mia on the other hand looks more serene. Different models have different expressions and there are varieties even within the model according the special versions. Eye colors, eye shape, hair… So many choices to make!

Snow Queen Mia, Wizard of Oz Himeno and Marron Parfait Alisa are the models I really like. However, it seems I have already lost my chances to get them. Have to check the stock if I get any decisions out before they sell out the last of those.

As you see I have gone through quite a lot of pictures. They do not make my decision any easier. On the contrary. My starting point being, if I get one, I get one. Thus this very throughout consideration…
