Mail day

Gestern kam unerwartet mein Oscardoll Paket an. Unerwartet deshalb, weil es laut Tracking immer noch im Importzentrum sein sollte, aber offensichtlich hält es die DHL/Post zur Zeit mit ihrem Tracking so wie Lindner, "besser gar kein Tracking als schlechtes Tracking".
Die Größe des Paketes hat mich allerdings überrascht, denn ich hatte nur 4 Paar Augen bestellt, die hätten sie auch locker in einen wesentlich kleineren Karton packen können, aber als ich das Paket aufmachte, sah ich den Grund für die Größe, denn sie hatten mir viele Goodies eingepackt, unter anderem Süßigkeiten, Sticker und ein Geschenk, einen Haarreif. Aber was für ein Haarreif, ich musste ihn erst ein paar Sekunden betrachten, bevor ich realisierte, was es ist. Er ist mit Blumen dekoriert, mit Schleifen und Bändern, mit Federn, mit Fur, mit Glitzer, mit Blütenblättern und noch dazu thront - oder brütet - da noch ein Vögelchen oben drauf ;).
Ich habe lange überlegt, welcher meiner Dolls ich dieses Kunstwerk a…

Finding the right wig

I'm having a really hard time finding the right kind of wig for my Dollshe Rosa. I do not know why, but from the beginning I did have a particular kind of style for her in mind. Red hair with bangs and a pony-tail, but somehow that style is hardly available, especially in the 6/7 size range. Until now I've tried at least seven(!) different wigs on her, but none of those were exactly what I was looking for. :/
   And for some reason this really put me off from doing much with her. She is still hands down one of my most favorite dolls, but she is a little difficult thanks to her very special body size.
For now she'll stay with this wig though. For some reason I do like the color on this one as it isn't such a bright and intensive (and fake) looking color as most of the other wigs are. It isn't too natural looking either, but I do think that it matches her skin color, her face-up painting and her eye color nicely, so this one will have to do.
   Now it's time to …

Photobucket Problems

Hey meine Lieben,

falls ihr hier im Blog oder anderswo auf nicht mehr verfügbare Bilder stoßt, handelt es sich dabei bestimmt um Bilder, die auf meinem alten Photobucket-Account lagen. Wie ihr wahrscheinlich mitbekommen hat, hat sich der früher kostenlose Photohosting Anbieter nun dazu entschlossen nicht mehr kostenlos zu sein, sondern ziemlich viel Geld für seine Dienste zu verlangen. Aus diesem Grund musste ich Stück für Stück meine Bilder von dort umziehen, aber da sich da im Laufe von 10 Jahren ziemlich viele Bilder angesammelt haben, könnt ihr euch vorstellen, dass ich es nicht geschafft habe, alle umzuziehen. Ich gebe mir zwar Mühe, alle gebrochenen Links zu reparieren, aber es klappt nicht immer. Wenn ihr also irgendwo noch solche fehlenden Bilder findet, schreibt mich bitte an :).


Hi guys,
I'm still trying to recover all those images that got lost due to the Photobucket disaster, but I'm still not even halfway done with it and I highly doubt that I will really be able t…

Altering dancing shoes

Long time no post, what can I say - except that I have been very busy at the end of the year. First came the preparations for LDoll, then the stress at the end of the year with a heavy flu, but now things are starting to get back to normal and I hope that I'll be able to share more doll stuff in the coming days.

Today for instance I worked on some ballet dancing shoes that I bought from Dollmore during the LDoll festival. Because to get proper doll items it does not always make sense to create them completely from scratch. Sometimes there is also the option to alter existing products to make them work for your needs. I almost always do that with wigs. There is actually hardly a doll wig in my collection that was not restyled at some point 😂.

But let's return to the shoes. So I got this lovely pink shoes. As you can see the binding ribbon is wayyyy to large, I mean it's almost human sized!


So the first (though scary) thing is to cut them off. I checked if it was possible …

What a lovely day :)

So the reasons why there weren't any new posts in this blog in the last weeks was that I dedicated every free minute to the challenges in the DoA triathlon. Now that the triathlon is finally over and the winners were announced, I'll happily show you my creations and tell you a little bit about it, too.

The doll I choose to be my model in this challenge was Naoumie, my Withdoll Emma. Her tan skin forms such a nice contrast to the transparent/white parts of her outfit.

The idea with the goldfish bowl was literally the first idea I had. I knew that I had to make this on a low budget (I spent too much money on dolls lately and refused to buy more stuff), so I looked around for transparent plastic items that I could use and I came across those little plastic bowls. The one she's wearing as a head decoration /fascinator. I have three of them and I bought them a couple of years ago (I think they were filled with fruit pudding), just because I thought that they'd make nice go…

Proud of myself

I'm so proud of myself :). Why you ask? Simply, because I finally managed to paint and assemble the little toys I got as extra presents with my Dream Studio order. It wasn't that simple to finish them, as it was to complete the furniture. Partly because these parts are so small and partly because there was some extra work included here, like I had to carve the toothpicks a little smaller, since they were too large to enter through the holes in the wheels. But nevermind the extra work. Just look at little Sheepy, isn't he cute? He also has a sister, little Bunny, she's not in the photo though, but I'll soon take a picture of both of them together. >.<

And I'm also happy, because I managed to finish the entries 1 and 2 for the Den of Angels triathlon in time and I feel confident, that I should be able to finish the last contest as well.

Roterwolkenvogl's commission finally finished

Well, exactly what the title says. I was commissioned by Roterwolkenvogel to create for her Fashion Grant an outfit similar to the one I made for David, only that hers should be black.
I've had the spontaneous idea to add a net part to the upper part of the shirt, so that her Demon would be able to flaunt his tattoos even while being dressed somewhat more. However the net part made sewing complicated. Oh well O____O
She also chose a very different kind of fabric that came with small, irregular folds. It really gives a very special touch to the hood :).
