Fashion Friday (on Monday…) – 15th July 2016

I would like to have some fancy excuse for missing Fashion Friday last week, but the truth is, I completely forgot!! I am so cross at myself as I haven’t missed a Friday for the whole year so far but I completely and utterly forgot last week!

Anyway, your model today is Matilda which seemed a good choice as she is currently entered in the BJD Runway competition on Instagram and today the pictures from Round 1 were published πŸ™‚ If you would like to vote for Matilda, please follow @bjdrunway on Instagram and “like” Matilda’s photo. This is our entry below but please like it on Instagram to vote for us for the people’s choice vote πŸ˜‰

BJD Runway - Round 1

Matilda is a Fairyland Littlefee Madeleine in tan skin with the default faceup. Her wig is a “Tyra” by Monique which I purchased through Facets by Marcia; and her eyes are Mako.

I’m afraid I have no idea where the dress was from, but her waistcoat, tights and the skirt she is wearing underneath the dress are all icantdance. The glasses were from Kuloft but I don’t think they sell them anymore.

Box Opening: Iplehouse Pet Doll – Bull Terrier

So as promised yesterday, here is part 2 of my Iplehouse Pet Doll box opening. I ordered two dogs from them; the Boston Terrier I introduced you to yesterday, and this gorgeous little guy ❀ He is a Bull Terrier and his name is Bodger (named after the Bull Terrier from The Incredible Journey).

He was packaged in the exact same way as the Boston Terrier so I won’t share box pics again. As with the Boston Terrier, I am super impressed with him. He poses wonderfully and his paint work is so detailed. I think he has the sweetest, most gentle little face ❀

He works well with Olive who is a large MSD (Dollstown Ganga on 7 years body), but I also think he works really well with the Littlefee. They look like young children next to a full size dog which works well for me. However, I don’t think Winnie (the Boston Terrier) works well with the Littlefee because Boston Terrier’s are meant to be small dogs but she looks too big next to them. Β My original plan was for both dogs to belong to Olive but I think whilst Winnie most definitely does, Bodger mayΒ spend someΒ of his time with the Littlefee as well. But we’ll see πŸ˜› I’m sure I will photograph Winnie & Bodger together on their own a lot too.

Come back tomorrow for another post where I will show you the collars and toy I made for them πŸ™‚

Fashion Friday – 13th May 2016

I thought I’d change things up a bit for Fashion Friday this week and take the photos outside as it was such a beautiful day! I also painted a doll bench yesterday so it seemed like a good excuse to try it out in photos πŸ™‚

Matilda is the model today. For those that don’t know, she is a Fairyland Littlefee Madeleine in tan skin with the default faceup. Her wig is the “Tyra” by Monique (which I purchased at Facets by Marcia) and she is wearing Mako eyes.

She is wearing quite a basic outfit component wise today but I just adore her little dress from icantdance. Its adorable enough on its own without needing to accessorize her too much. I’m afraid I do not remember the name of the shop that her tights came from but I do know that they are no longer trading. I have pretty similar ones from Spampy though. Her shoes were from SunnyBobo on Etsy but they no longer have a shop either which is a real shame as I would have got these in more colours.

Matilda’s puppy, Buddy, was made by DaisyDayes whom you can find on Flickr. You need to request to be her friend to see her photo stream and she does not take commissions. She usually posts a teaser photo on her stream when she is about to release some critters for sale and they go REALLY fast so you need to keep an eye out πŸ˜‰ I picked up the bench from a car boot sale so I’m afraid I can’t tell you where it is from; and I just painted it with normal outdoor furniture paint.
