Plapico Dragons ~ Box Opening + Comparison + Giveaway Hint

Hello everybody!  You know that I anounced my secret project for this year, and here I have the main part of it to show you! My dragons arrived in a huge box, so here is a quick box opening as well. There are ten dragons, of which:
  • One Seed is for me. He is going to join my crew as Spring personified and will be named Eiar.
  • Eight (8!) dragons will be customised and sent as gifts. I wish I could give one to every person that helped me, but honestly is out of my possibilities.
  • One dragon is for a giveaway! Yes, I'm doing this with Aileendoll EU and Shrike Aesthetics.
Since I have so many dragons available, and I want to make them unique, I'm going to be mixing parts. So on the video I show some things, and there are some additional pics and summaries under the cut.

A 1950's Winnie Pooh Dress

Hello everybody! Yes, I warned you last month that I was in a sewing streak that combined vintage patterns with Disney themed fabrics. Lo and behold another 1950's dress (again, original vintage patterns that were modified) but this time with a Winnie Pooh fabric. I absolute love it.

I don't know, but this "topic" for dresses feels so fun! The fabrics are cute and therefore fun to sew, so I had a great time with this. Plus, I had barely enough fabric for this dresses, so it was really a matter of placement. Especially on this one, because it has stripes and all the faces are pointing on the same direction, so I it was even more difficult and less optimal placing.

Anyways, enjoy a quick post with tons of pics! BTW, the dress is up for sale, though. I don't have space anymore to hoard them, and I need money for my not-so-secret-anymore project.

Secret Project: Shrike Eyes Package Review

Hello again! A little while ago I told you about my secret project. And this is the first step! All the dragons are going to need pretty eyes, and ShrikeAesthetics sales the Lucky Eye Bags at a very affordable price: $35 per bag, which contains 3 pairs each!

Here is a small and very short video about the eyes, to showcase all the amazing detail they have. All lucky bags are 10mm, and there is a special pair of eyes with a very important clue there (pssst: I'm doing a giveaway, so go check the video!).

There are closeup pics under the cut!

Gratefulness Project ~ Dragon Army

This is just to tell you about a project that I'll be working on. I mentioned it on my goals for this year.

In 2019, I had the opportunity to move to Australia with a job offer. However, Aussie laws regarding pet imports are really strict and the procedure is quite expensive. We couldn't afford it, but our cat Bread is a family member to us. So I asked for help to the BJD community
And people helped us. Some of them even purchased all the sewing patterns on my Etsy store. Other people shared my story almost every day. Somebody donated me something on every payday. Bread had a long 15 days trip, but finally arrived to us on June.

I cannot state how grateful I am to the people of this hobby that helped me so, so much. We are still together because of the amazing hobbists. So I want to give back, as a "thank you" for all that help. I wish I could give something to every person that donated me money or purchased from my store, but I can't. However, some went out of their way to help us. And with this project, I'll be sending some dolly gifts to them.
