Fashion Friday – 26th August 2016

Ahhhhhh! I’m late again! So sorry, haha πŸ˜€ I have been busy working on Matty’s entry for the next round of BJD Runway on Instagram this week and it completely slipped my mind! Hopefully these pictures will make up for it though.

Will is modelling this week, I believe it’s his first time in Fashion Friday (not that he looks that thrilled about it lol!). Will is a Doll Chateau Hugh with a custom faceup by GamerGirlLexi. His wig is Kemper and I don’t know about his eyes.

Today he is wearing his new baseball style t-shirt from Starrshine Designs, and pants from TTYA. I don’t know where his socks are from. His backpack was from a supermarket here in the UK called Asda.Β Will’s pet companion is Bodger, an Iplehouse Bull Terrier Pet Doll.

Starrshine Designs Order Arrival

I had some new MSD size clothes arrive today. They are from StarrshineDesigns on Etsy, whom I have ordered from before and wrote about previously here.

The clothes are really lovely quality, as they were last time; however, I will be honest in saying that if you are going to order from them, expect to wait a while for them. It says 2-3 weeks on the shop due to personal issues but I waited over a month and it was only by me contacting the shop myself to ask about my order that meant I found out that they still had not been shipped. They were shipped pretty quickly after my email, but I still had to wait longer than stated with no message to say there was a delay etc. So, I can highly recommend their clothes in terms of quality and price (especially if you order when there is an offer on), but do expect to have to wait a while for them.

I ordered this t-shirt and Walking Dead pants for Will. The pants especially are awesome. They are a bit short on Will but everything is because he has such long legs XD Its all part of his character anyway so it doesn’t matter to me. The t-shirt is great too. It doesn’t have an opening at the back so you will need to remove your dolls head to put the t-shirts on them.

I also ordered some t-shirts/tops for Olive. She is a really chunky MSD but I had tried some of Will’s tops I had ordered previously on her and they fitted so I went ahead and ordered some for her this time to expand her casual wardrobe a bit. Here she is in one of them (and sporting a new wig, some of you may notice!).

These are the other tops I ordered for her. I am hoping to put some iron on transfers on the fronts of them soon. I haven’t tried the pink and white one on her yet. I’m not sure if that one will definitely fit well as the neck hole is a lot narrower on it but hopefully it will. The stretchy jeggings were meant to be for Will but I think they will be a bit too short for him so they may end up being for another incoming doll instead…

I was also sent these little notebooks which were meant to make up for the long wait I experienced.

Our Generation: “The Reel Deal” Deluxe Outfit Set

You can buy Our Generation items here in the UK from Smyths Toys and online at My Doll Boutique, but the range isn’t as big as what’s available in the USA, plus they are quite highly priced here in comparison. However, there is a special members only discount website here called Achica which has new sales of items every day of heavily discounted stuff that only lasts a day or two until it is sold out; and a few weeks ago they had a bunch of Our Generation stuff available for really cheap prices, including a few sets that I haven’t seen available in the UK on other sites.

I got a few of them, mainly for Olive (my Dollstown Ganga 7yrs) to use so I am waiting for her to get back from her faceup before I show you them. However, this set I am showing you today works for a few of my dolls so I thought I’d get on and show you it whilst we wait for Olive to come home.

This is a deluxe outfit set called “The Reel Deal” which I mainly got because I wanted the fishing rod πŸ˜‰

Our Generation: The Reel Deal

It comes with a swim set (top and bottoms), sunhat, sunglasses, glittery jelly sandals, a fishing rod and a bucket.

Now the outfit just about works for my Disney Animator dolls. The swimsuit and sandals are a little big, the hat is a little small and the sunglasses are much too small; but I think she just about gets away with it. The fishing rod and bucket work absolutely fine for her.

The fishing rod also works really well for Will and Olive (please excuse her headless body lol!), although I do wish the rod wasn’t quite so pinky purple. I may paint it a different colour at some point. The bucket is fine for them both too and will probably be fine with the Littlefee/YOSDs as well. Generally, I’m pretty pleased with the set. I only really got it for the fishing rod but some of the other pieces work ok with my other kinds of dolls too so that is an added bonus πŸ™‚
