Garodoll Urethane Eyes ~ Review

Hello! Today I have another video review to share with you! You know, in 2016 one of my dolly goals was to get urethane eyes for my dolls. I took my chances and also ordered eyes for Venezia, knowing that I would order her on December. Nevertheless, customs failed me and my package got stuck for 2.5 months.

Anyways, the eyes are urethanes from GaroDoll. It is a very small artist studio, and the artist behind is Lua, who also does faceups and sculpts dolls. Last year I interviewed her, and you can read it here. You can also find her on Etsy.

The video has both English and Spanish subtitles, in case my accent gets on the way! There is a little more info under the cut.

I need to send a special thanks to Lúa, because the brown pair is a gift!

Here is a little info on the eyes I bought
  • Size: 12mm, with 4.5mm iris.
  • Dome: low. It is GaroDoll's default, but I think you can request high dome.
  • Colors: (from left to right) custom hazel based on a photo reference, light blue and brown from her color chart.
  • Material: urethane resin with UV cut.

Anyways, this is all for today! Let me know if you have any questions, I will try my best to answer! Hope you are having a great weekend! Any dolly news? How are your dolly plans going?

Happy Bday Cookie!

Yes! Another bday photostory! Cookie bday is actually the 13th, but I like to post on weekends, so the post is up one day ahead. I know Kitty Cookie arrival was actually on January 3rd, but since both Cookie and Kitty Cookie are the same character... I decided to settle with Cookie's bday on March.

Anyways! I had this idea a while ago, while making the stuff for my diorama (I still want to do a "room toor" video of it... soon-ish). So... I do hope you enjoy this, although I don't have as many anecdotes for it as I had with Merry's xD

As before, click on the photo to enlarge it!

Happy Birthday Merry!

It is unbelievable, but today is Merry 2nd birthday! She arrived out of pure surprise, since she was a gift, and I couldn't be happier with her.

I had to confess that I always struggle with her outfits and colors. There are so many colors I don't like on her, that I ended up making this outfit twice, in different fabrics... I need to thanks my hubby for rescuing me a suggesting a good combination!

I have another funny anecdote, but I will share it after the story is done, so I won't "spoil" anything. Anyways, hope you enjoy! You can click the photos to enlarge them!

Interview with FingertipDreamland

Today I have a very special interview to share with you! Please welcome Huona from FingertipDreamland, the artist that has created those awesome, cute and unique tiny cyclop kittens! However, I also need to thank EugenioRuspoli as he acted as translator, translating from English to Chinese and then back to English.

As always, the interview is both in English and Spanish, and all photos are used with permission. I hope you will enjoy this!

Hello and thank you for doing the interview! Will you introduce yourself to the readers?
Thank you for having me! My name is Huona and I'm the sculptor and owner of Fingertip Dreamland. I began making BJDs in 2013. At first I released through Island Doll and OrDoll. Then, in 2016, I struck out on my own and formed Fingerip Dreamland.

Should I Share? ~ Story Time

Hello everybody! Here it is time for another story! Today's is focused on Coco, as I want to keep working on my story. I think next post will be either a "10 facts" or "character questionnaire" for Venezia. Now that I have my urethane eyes (finally!!!!) I want to re-work everybody's profiles, even the tinies!

Anyways, I attempted to make a sort of diorama/house thing for Coco. This was a balcony attempt (Coco's back is facing her living room window)... so please, do have a little imagination xD Oh well... my terrible writing is under the cut.
