Soom Juchy – Pumpkin Sprite

Meet the newest member of the crew.

Her name is Junia. Soom Juchy. A little sprite and a guardian of a fountain situated deep within an ancient forest. She rarely has contact with anyone which makes it all the more fascinating once she does encounter someone.

She is a tiny little fairy and Soom mini gem size. Height according to Soom is 31.5cm. I find it is rather hard to compare her with any of my other girls. Mina (Aileendoll Camellia) as a tiny is not as tall and is also considerably more sturdy while both of my MSD girls Tori and Lunetta (Dollmore Torrie and Souldoll Aehael) are taller and sturdier as well. Differently proportioned. This little girl is slim like a barbie doll, light in weight and with lovely light violet skin color. Such a delicate whole, fragile with all the details.

Previously I haven’t had a doll with wig size 4 inches and therefore had to order her with the default wig so I could at least have something for her. So tiny! Not quite sure the blond is her thing but finding alternatives has proven rather a challenging task. An odd size. I am somewhat close to considering an option of trying to make her a mohair or an alpaca wig of my own…

A great info page on DoA will get me started. Additionally I need to go through some barbie clothes. There might be something she can make use of. For now she is wearing a white lace dress I made for her so she has at least something to wear for the time being.

Soom apparently recommends eye size 6mm for her but I don’t have anything so small around @_@ So she is wearing DD-Anne’s Garden blue acrylic 8mm eyes I had stored away. I will try two other 8mm pairs for her as well. Hazel and metal blue/purple as they are. Then make a choice among those. For the time being at least :p

Her lovely transparent fairy parts sit in a box for the time being. I am trying to decide on the color and blushing style for them. Something dark or maybe pastel colors?

Monthly update: July

Time for another summer month full of news. I feel quite productive and inspired during summer so have to take advantage of that fact.

Aya (CP Soo Dark Elf) will celebrate her 10-year anniversary next year.

Pullip plans

With completion of the first Tsukifly Custom Pullip Sarinna I got a boost to complete certain other sketches I had previously left in the drawers of my writing desk… Then came the second custom in lovely Mocha Skin: Éclair. The third will be another fair skinned little beauty: Huurre. My estimation to complete her is by the end of this month.

Another Pullip related news is a dress set without a doll. One piece long dress with a cute and unique bunny headdress. I can confirm that these dress sets will be a rarity within Etsy as I have decided to focus on full custom sets. For now. However, occasional exceptions may be made and then they are sure to appear around Etsy.

A dress set for Leeke Art-body

I have had this dress on my table for a month now. Finally it is completed. A custom set for Leeke Art-body. Also a present for this girl as she has been my model without objections.

There is also a minty cotton lace dress made for this size. Once I have time to finish it entirely it will be available through Etsy. More news on that will follow later.

More MNF / Unoa sized clothing

I have got inquiries after this size for a while. Well, with a modelil_570xN.1045917465_a93u (Lunetta) and a bit of inspiration it has been fairly easy to complete few more demanding clothing sets for summer. First was Alice within Alice dress set, already mentioned in my previous post. Secondly, may I present a full lace ballerina dress. It consists of two separate pieces, a ballerina corset top and a lace skirt. Fitted for Unoa / MNF / slim MSD – small bust. It is a delicate and delightful set to make any girl a beautiful ballerina. Both pieces may also be used separately so it is a great mix & match set as well. The main color of the dress is off-white. The corset has been made of several layers while the skirt is topped with few layers of tulle under the lace layer. Both pieces are without a finished lining but neatly put together.

With a thing for laces and ribbons there may be more of these ballerina style dresses coming in future. In Lillycat Cerisedolls size for example. A hint of future plans. Find this white lace dream Ballerina set in Etsy.

I am currently finishing a new MNF / Unoa dress for Etsy. Still considering certain SAMSUNG CSCadditional pieces I may include with it. Or then it may be only the dress. A glimpse of minty/green/gold to give you an idea what to expect. This babydoll -style dress with its flower detail will be available in Etsy later this month.

Coming soon – Etsy

Before I will update new items in Etsy most of them will be mentioned in this blog prior to their listing. Thus I would advise to keep an eye on the blog to have an idea what is to be expected ~

In addition to the babydoll dress and the new custom Pullip I can already say that few other items will be available as well. Most of them are from stock I have completed previously but haven’t had the possibility to add in Etsy.

At least a mix & match over-knee skirt made of the same lovely patterned fabric which has been used for the upper part of the babydoll dress, an tiny shirt for Dust of Dolls and doll jewelry pieces. Keep an eye on updates and Etsy ~ !

My warm thank you for all the support you have given me! Especially with regard to the launch of the Tsukifly Etsy shop!~ 

 

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.

Bubbla modelling a new bright outfit set for Dust of Dolls.

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.
