Fashion Friday – 20th May 2016

Today is a special Fashion Friday because May 20th is International Behcet’s Disease Awareness Day. Some of you may know that I have an incurable chronic illness and it so happens that that illness is Behcet’s Disease. It is an incredibly rare (and therefore not very well understood) illness which causes a whole host of problems, many of which can be life threatening. Its so rare, it was even featured in an episode of “House” πŸ˜‰ You can read more about it here.

For this day that is so important to me, people are encouraged to wear blue to show their support; so it seemed only right that today’s Fashion Friday should be blue themed πŸ™‚ And who else to model it but Brave, my own little blue boy!

For those that don’t know him, Brave is a 5StarDoll Aiden 5 with the default faceup and default acrylic eyes. His wig is made by Frapzilla.

Brave’s top is from the etsy store ElDollRado. Its the first item I have had from them but I’m sure it won’t be the last. Its really well made and such a cute design. It was made specifically for Littlefee so the arms are a little short on Brave but we are not bothered πŸ™‚

He has worn his leggings for Fashion Friday before, they were made by GuguModa. Well. He has worn another pair that look exactly the same before but they were a little short for him so when I ordered something else a few weeks ago, she very kindly included a new pair of the leggings for Brave that were longer so they would fit him perfectly πŸ™‚ Thank you so much! They are perfect now!

Finally, his odd socks are from 2 different creators. The left one is from Spampy and the right one is from icantdance πŸ˜€

I got the rocking horse at a car boot sale but I have seen them on ebay before with porcelain dolls so you may be able to find one that way πŸ˜‰

    Dear Lucy, IΒ΄m deeply touched. I can understand why you chose Brave for todayΒ΄s pictures. Because you really are Brave sharing about your illness. Once again, Thanks a lot for sharing.

    Hi Lucy,
    So sorry you are so ill, but considering what you must face each day, you have the most positive attitude and I think that Brave is the perfect doll for today. I have one of those rocking horses myself somewhere amongst my props, must dig it out to show you. πŸ™‚ Love the way you have dressed Brave today and just so you know, I am wearing navy blue today.
    Keep on keeping on!
    Hugs,
