Breakfast at the Park ~ Photos

Hello! Well, I was hoping that V's next photoshoot would be the 1940's playsuit, but I had a sewing crisis (you know, 3 attempts at the shirt and all look like trash?), so I decided to get her back to her casuals, and take some pics in the park.

Some of the minis you see here (Chobani and cereals) where miniatures that you could get in tiny blindbags when you purchase groceries at a supermarket (Coles). The cute cup is made by an Aussie creator that I found on the BJD Emporium (she is @emff on Instagram), and where A$8 each. It has tons of details!

Anyways, aparently, new Venezia likes to often have breakfast in the park. Sadly, I took all the pics with the same outfit... but I'm sure she didn't eat them all on the same day. And she probably didn't wear the same coord twice, so... anyways, you get my point! Just me enjoying some pictures at the park.

Robotime DIY Dollhouse: A Summary!

Hello everybody! So in December I got this Robotime DIY Dollhouse kit, which was on an heavy sale. It is a whole dollhouse full of props.

I started assembling it on December on my annual leave, and recorded more than 16 hours of me assembling the house! I wanted to make a whole video. I had to format my camera's card 4 times because I run out of space. However, as soon as I started with the video, the disk died. It just stopped working... I took it to two (2!) repair stores, and the diagnosis was the same: internal damage (technically, it was an external HDD and the motor just broke? Wut!?). Repair it would cost me more than A$1200 that I did not had and wasn't going to spend on that.

I honestly was so sad, as I really really wanted to share that. It was so amazingly find and hard to assemble the house, but so worthy! I'm posting this so late, because between all of that, getting both diagnosis on my HDD took me two months, and then I already had a lot of posts scheduled (my dragon project!).

So I started scrapping my WhatsApp conversations with my mom, and I had tons of crappy phone pics. I didn't care about the angles on these pictures, so please bear with me. I tried my best for cropping and editing, but it is just not the same.

Eiar ~ Character Info

Well, between all the dragons I purchased for gifting, I got one for myself! He is another of the season dragons, and his name is Eiar, representing wind, Spring, joy, newness and growth! Here are some pics of Eiar (read it EH-EE-AR) and there is a brief character questionnaire below, so you have have more information on him as well.

Also, I painted him with soft pastels and watercolours. For the flowerish design, I followed this tutorial in YouTube, because I thought it fitted perfectly with the spring theme.

Interview with AphelionDoll

Hello everybody! It is time for another interview, and this month we welcome AphelionDolls directly from Germany. She makes some stunningly realistic, yet fantasy, eyes and I'm positive you'll love them. As always, the interview is written in English and Spanish and all photos are used with permission. So without further ado, let's start!

Hi there! Thank you for doing the interview! :D
Hello! Thank you so much for inviting me for an interview. I am the entity behind AphelionDoll and create handmade items for BallJointedDolls. And if I counted correctly, I wandered for about 28 years on earth for now, soon 29 - I really like it here. The place I stay at is located in the EU, somewhere in Germany in a village, and the night sky here is fascinating when the sky is clear. So many little stars! You should come and see it, too.
¡Hola! ¡Gracias por aceptar la entrevista! :D
¡Hola! Muchas gracias por invitarme a la entrevista. Soy la entidad detrás de AphelionDoll y creo manualidades para BJDs. Y si he contado adecuadamente, ya he estado 28 años en la tierra, pronto 19 -realmente me gusta acá. Estoy ubicada en la UE, en una villa en alguna parte de Alemania, y el cielo nocturno es fascinante aquí porque el cielo es muy claro. ¡Tantas estrellas! Deberían venir a verlas.

Fairies Gifts ~ Story

Last year in August my partner gifted me this cute little nano-block set from Daiso, which forms a kitty. I wasn't able to take pictures of it until December... taking pics of this with my phone was terrible. Anyways, the little Sylvanians are joining my fairies on this!

A little backdrop story before starting!

Merry is a Mouse Fairy, and her job is to collect kid's teeth and leave a little coin behind. Sometimes, some humans leave special gifts for her as well. And one day, somebody left her a little case full of tiny blocks and a instruction set. Of course, she collected "thought glitter", additional rolls in human games, and fetched Cookie...
