Liebster Award


Been a long time since i last posted something on my blog. I have had a lot going on the last half a year, with moving a couple of times, searching for job and having nothing really to post.

I was tagged by my sister Kurisu and DollDolour to do the Liebster Awards, so I will be making it in one post, since it is easier :)

The rules are:
1. Thank the person who presented you the award and link back to their blog.
2. Post the award image on your blog.
3. Answer 11 questions posted by the presenter.
4. Nominate 5-11 blogs with less than 200 followers.
5. Create 11 questions for the nominees to answer.
6. List the rules in your post.
7. Inform the people you chose of their nomination by leaving a comment on their blog and link them your post.

From Kurisu:

1. What is the best thing that has ever happened to you because of this hobby?
I think that the best thing that has happened because of the hobby is that I found something that makes me more happy. I smile to myself whenever i look at my dolls. 

2. Do you think this hobby has changed you as a person?
I think it has made me a tiny bit more outgoing. I feel more comfortable going up to someone and talking to them...especially if they carry BJD's as well.

3. When did you start collecting, and what was your idea when you started (like limits of how many dolls, limits as to what to spend, maybe you only wanted dolls from a certain company)?
I started collecting in the end of 2009 but have known to the hobby since 2005. At the beginning I was only planning to have 2 dolls, a boy and a girl...but I have fallen in love with too many dolls to keep to that limit XD. I don't think i ever had a limit for money and for which company...

4. What are the main reasons why you are in this hobby?
It makes me happy, even though it is a expensive hobby. 

5. Are there certain people/brands/etc. that inspires your collection?
Hm...I feel inspired whenever I go on DenOfAngels or go on different doll brand sites. XD

6. Where do you store your doll-boxes?
Most of my doll boxes are currently stored on my parents loft. 

7. How long did you wait on your dolls from they were paid off until you had them in your hands? Please mention the fastest and slowest!
The shortest period i have waited was 2 weeks and the longest was 2,5 months. 

8. What is the most appealing feature in a dolls face?
When I look at dolls, eyes are what I look at first. If I don't like the eyeshape and such, I will not be interested in the doll. 

9. Do you have a no-go? F.ex. big noses, angry eyes, teeth showing, etc.
I don't actually think that I have a no-go...

10. If you could have any doll in the world, which do you desire most?
I actually currently don't have a doll that I just must have...luckily (my wallet would cry if I had). If I do have to choose something, it wouldn't be a specific doll, but a body for my Little Rebel Seven head. ;)

11. Do you have a preferred skin tone for your resin buddies?
I like most skin tones, but I always wanted a tan but currently most of my dolls are normal skin. 

From DollsDolour:

1. What is the last picture you took with your phone or camera?
I think the last pictures I took was the comparison pics i did with my Little Rebel Seven head and my other dolls. 

2. Best compliment you have received?
"What a beautiful doll. I would love to own one too." 

3. What are your plans for your doll(s) this year? New wigs, clothes, new dolls?
Get a body for my Seven head, get clothes for my dolls...i might buy a new doll during the year, if I find someone that I just need to own. 

4. What is your perfect pizza?
Hmm...I think it would be with tuna, schrimp and eggs XD

5. Which doll would you get if you could, not matter what? Why?
I don't honestly know....^^''

6. What kind of music do you listen to?
I mostly listen to Korean music and a few japanese artists like One Ok Rock and My First Story. Other than that i like artists like Adele, Sam Smith, Ed Sheeran and such. 

7. What cheers you up?
Hilarious videos on youtube, playing games with my family, listening to music, watching movies and looking at my dolls. 

8. What is your favorite word and why?
I don't have a favorite word.

9. Have you ever felt that your hobby is too much and that you do not connect well with your dolls?
I have only once felt I didn't connect with a doll, and that was when I was reshelling one of my dolls.

10. You are going for a trip, a week long, and you can only take ONE doll with you. Which one and why?
I would most likely take my Peakswoods YOSD with me, since she is small and easy to carry around. 

11. What's your earliest childhood memory?
Hmm...I don't think it is my earliest childhood memory, but it is one that I remember the most. Me driving with my grandfather in his tractor to the beach. 

My questions:

1. Which doll in your collection is the one you spend most time with and why?
2. What got you into the hobby?
3. How much money are you willing to spend on your dream doll?
4. What is your fondest memory in the hobby?
5. Have you experienced anything bad in the hobby?
6. Do you have any specific things you go through when choosing name and looks for your dolls?
7. Is there anything you wish you did more in the hobby?
8. Do you have any routines when taking pictures?
9. Is there any specific doll or person in the hobby you are inspired by?
10. Do you have a holy grail doll, if yes which?
11. How many dolls have you got since you started in the hobby?

Long time no see...

It's been a while since I last posted something on here :(
I have been quite busy with exams and such but I guess it is time to make a small update ;)

In December me and my two older sister's made a huge taobao order. Some of the things came in February, but most of it still hasn't arrived yet.

Got my older sister (Johanne) to make a compilation picture for me with all my things in the order. 

The 3 things at the top of the picture is the things I recieved from the package that came in February. 

For Jun Ki i bought him a black and grey striped 3 piece suit, an orange shirt, a black tie, some brown shoes and some silicone caps for his elbow joints. 

For little Deryn i only bought some eyes, the small steampunk-ish boots and a wig cap. I am going to make all her clothes myself and I unfurtunately still hasn't been able to buy her a wig. ^^´´ 

I only got a wig cap for Psyche since she is already how I want her to be. :) 

For Haneul i got a white dress, some brown/flower pattern shoes, a white belt and a wig cap. 

And lastly I got some black shoes and pink wig (probably not going to be her final wig) for Akiko. 

So looking forward to when the last things arrive. I am going home in the end of March and hopefully they have arrived by then. :)

LittleRebel Resin Comparisons

Here is a short post about the resin comparisons I am currently able to make with my LittleRebel Seven head and my other dollies.

Just for the fun of it, I dicided to compare my two newest dolls as well. They look very cute together and my tiny's sassy attitude can really be seen XD The resin match clearly isn't so well since one is NS and one is WS. I might be able to get Kurisu to do a resin comparison of my LR head next to her PW NS when she get's her home to do her faceup :) 

The resin match between LR NS 2014-2015 is IMO about 90-95% compared to Supia NS from 2010. The match to Loongsoul's NS-Y is very bad. It is a bit better in real life (just like with my supia rosy) but on pictures, especially with flash, is not that great. The next size it perfect (9cm) but for a better match you might hate to buy a Loongsoul WS body. (Loongsoul NS-P seems very peachy in color).

The match to Souldoll NS isn't that very good, but I have no idea if my Souldoll boy is yellowed or not. The Souldoll head is a limited head from 2008 and the body came in 2010 and they are still a perfect match. The LittleRebel head almost seem like WS next to my Souldoll boy (in pictures - she doens't look that white in real life next to him). 

The match between LittleRebel NS 2014-2015 and Xagadoll NS from 2013 is almost a perfect match. I would say that they match about 98-99% (99,8% in real life). 

This was actually my first time making a resin comparison post, so I hope it is a bit helpful to those considering to get one of Kat's beautifull LittleRebel heads. 

LR Seven arrives

My LittleRebel Seven head finally arrived and I couldn't be happier with her. She is so cute and beautiful! I am currently debating between a Classydoll 60Girl body and a Xagadoll 1/3 Girl Type B body for her. I still haven't found out what to call her ( I just know she is japanese). I have decided that she should have dark reddish-brown hair and most likely brown eyes and be dressed in Oshare Kei clothing. ;)

Her little box. It is very cute and stylish.

A cute little message from Kat <3

Here she is! Love her so very much! Can't wait to see her with faceup <3

A bit from the side :)

Her pretty profile! 

I have taken some resin comparison photos with her and my other dollies, that I will post in another post as soon as I can. :)

Little Deryn arrived today

My little Peakwoods FOF ws Rabbit Waltz arrived today.
I love so much already. I can't wait for when I have her wig and clothes. I am planning to get her a turqouise mohair wig and I will be making her clothes myself.

Well onwards to the box opening pictures! ;)

The Box <3 

The box in the box

I really love Peakswoods boxes. They are so pretty and shiny. 

Inside the box

Some very pretty cards that came along :)

The beautiful envelope containing the CoA.

The CoA.

The little mummy <3

Peakswoods sent along some very pretty grey-greenish glass eyes. 

Her cute extra set of hands.

The first look! She is just so cute! 

She is cute even without faceup..and eyes...It was here I found out I didn't have any eye putty left so she will have to be eyeless until I can buy some ^^'' 

She is actually kind of unfortunate. She came way sooner than I had expected so I haven't been able to buy her a wig or make her clothes. For now I have put her in my MSD's cute jacket XD

Looking forward for when she has a faceup (which I hope Kurisu wants to make ;) ).

Pictures :)

I have now put some pictures up of the 3 dolls I currently have at home. They are mostly just headshots, since i currently don't really have any usefull backdrops :(

The next time I come home to my parents I plan on taking A LOT of photos of my dolls that I can put on my little blog here. ;)

My little Deryn is still in the customs but hopefully they will let her go tomorrow so I might be able to get her on saturday or on monday. hehe

Small Update...

As you can see I am trying a whole new layout for the blog...and I am still figuring it out.
I haven't working with HTML coding for a very long time ^^"

My little Deryn (Peakswoods FOF Rabbit Waltz) arrived in customs last saturday and today I sent in the information the customs needed in order to process the package.
Hopefully I will be able to get my little steampunk fairy by end of this week or by the beginning of next week.

I am so looking forward to recieving her as I haven't had a tiny for about a year now.

Hopefully now that I have passed my exam (got A+) will I be able to take a lot of photos so the galleries can be updated ;)

LittleRebel Seven

I just ordered a LittleRebel Dolls Seven head :)

I wrote to Kat asking when it would be possible to preorder a Seven and she wrote back that there might not be any more preorder periods for Seven but that she had a few heads in stock she would sell. So I immediately took the chance to get Seven and bought the head.

Before I was actually planning to make Seven and Tenten twins, but I am now considering making Seven into a Mogami Kyoko from Skip Beat! as she is my ultimate favorite anime and manga character. But I will wait and see until later.

I have no idea about body for the head yet though my sister, Kurisu, have suggested April Story.

Shipping notice!!!


It's been a couple of weeks since i started this blog and since i last posted. Still working on making the blog pretty and such.

Well i just wanted to say that i recieved a shipping notice from Peakswoods this morning saying that my FOF Rabbit Waltz girl had been sent.

I hadn't expected a shipping notice after only 1,5 months of wait, so I haven't really been able to have something ready for her. I have bought som eyes and some shoes but they haven't arrived (ordered it in a group order with my two older sisters from Taobao).

I'm looking forward to finally having her in my hands and be able to make her steampunk clothes.

I am planning to take some photos in the weekend and make this blog even prettier if I get the time. I am currently making myself ready for an important exam so if I can't find the time this weekend I will be able to after tuesday.

A Promise Is A Promise


Finally started a dolly blog. ;P
I had considered making a blog about and for my bjd dolls for some time, but never really got to it.

Some days ago I then promised my older sister (better known as Kurisu) that I would make a dolly blog if I recieved a camera for christmas...which I did. So to keep that promise, I have now started out this blog.

I have not had a blog for over 5 years, so it's like learning all the functions again.

Well I do hope I will be able to remember to keep updating this blog...though I think Kurisu might help me to do so..... XD

Do hope that you will enjoy my blog as it grows.
