Girls' morning

"Good morning, sis!"

"Help me do my hair?"

"I love you."

The pictures are not the best quality. I haven't had time to take them out and try a proper photoshoot with the dolls yet. But they are so cute and awesome and it is hard not to take them out and just play with them even for a few minutes in the evening :)


My new-old miniature obsession: Asian ball-jointed dolls. I first discovered them back in 2005 or so but was a poor university student and could not afford them. Now I have three! And they are wonderful and I'm so glad that I am now in a position to indulge my dollie habit.

Winter is a Delf Kid Aru.

Calliope is an Iplehouse JID Tania.

Ilia is a Soulkid Shaun.

Aren't they awesome?!

I only have a handful of basic clothing for them (and nothing that really fits Ilia! His limbs are so long...) but I'm going to start sewing them stuff. I haven't sewn in ages so this will be a fun challenge.

Bennett is all done :)

Yesterday night I decided that the broken piece I glued together was strong enough to work with and finally finished building the Bennett. I had some trouble with unclear directions but was able to finish in about an hour. It looks so good!

I put a few piece of furniture in to get an idea of what I want the different rooms to be. All my furniture is 1:12 scale, however, so it looks a little off. I originally intended to purchase the brince dada furniture sets for the house but I'm a little hesitant at the moment. I still haven't heard back from the company in response to my e-mails about the Bennett, and I've read a few reviews where the furniture sets have also arrived damaged. I don't really want to deal with another replacement piece situation.

I really can't deny the gorgeousness of this house though. I just stare at it and sigh...
