Dolly Facts

Well, I though I will do this. Kitty was my first BJD and Coco (WD Rachel) is my first official resin ABJD. They are both first, but so different! I want to state some things about Coco that I did not think on the beginning, or things that I have been realizing since I have her. So here we go:

  1. She is way more gorgeous in real life, than in the promo pics.
  2. She is heavy! When I got her out of the box, I was amazed by her weight.
  3. I always admired faceup artists that can do such gorgeous things on the dolls. But it wasn't until I have my Rachel, then I saw her little tiny head -she is 6/7- that I said "OMFG how -the heck- does this people pain something so small!!?" So now, I can not even think on painting a Lati or Puki-sized doll!
  4. It is so easy to take pics of her looking natural, and not a bad-positioned doll, that all my fears have gone away!
  5. The first three days I had nighmares of bad things happening to her... like my cat destroying her, or the closet falling apart upon her, and so on xD
  6. Before I was -secretly- making plans for another doll, but now that I have her -and I know how expensive the customs are- I'm so super happy with her that I do not know if I wan't another doll... at least for now.
That was all. I want to write somethig -but you could have read it on my Twitter, I'm really liking this Twitter thing-: I'm sewing a babydoll for Coco! I was looking for a shirt tutorial I have saved on the markers, and when I got to the blog, I found out the Tutorials tab, browsed it, and found a pretty babydoll tutorial... and I had a silk scrap floating there, big enough to do a dress and the babydoll, oh! and I also had the perfect lace, and... screw it! I dropped the patters of the short pant and the shirt and started right away with the new "dress". Hope to finished it soon and take pics on Sunday!
