I caved….

…And ordered Fifth Motif Venitu on layaway.   disgusted-oh-god I had a bit of a problem with ordering from their website. It’s not like Soom or Iplehouse; I ordered through the website and then paypal took me to a page where it asked for the FULL amount.

Obviously I couldn’t afford all that in one go so I cancelled. It took me back to my account page where it said my order was cancelled.

Naturally, I FREAKED DA FUT OUT.

And hurriedly, furiously typed an email to Dollshe even though it was like, a Saturday and their working hours were definetely not the weekends.

On Monday I received no reply, so I re-sent the email. Then they got back to me explaining the layaway process. I sent an email back saying I wanted to do layaway and put down my dates of payment. I then went to paypal and paid for my 1st layaway, and put a note down saying who I was and what the payment was for.

After that… …nothing.

I didn’t receive any email confirmation or anything else. No acknowledge they’d taken my payment. But my Order page says ‘Processing’ so here’s me hoping everything is fine.

If not I WILL BE RAGING.

Because this ‘customer service’ is practically non-existent. And I was furious that I had to send my email AGAIN since I heard nothing back from them >_>

On the plus side I got Grimm’s faceup done. I’m no good, it went blotchy and became all weird. Pastels went everywhere and smudged all over his cheeks and nose. I lost my pencil sharpener and the tip was too blunt so his eyelids are funny. My camera is blurry so I’m safe for now harhar. It’s really hard to stick false eyelashes on a doll lol.

IMG_0517   Overall the process took 4-5 hours. I only sprayed on 2 layers of MSC. Man it stinks.

Here is what he looks like all wigged and dressed. For a guy doll, he’s so pretty *_* finishedgrimm I stuck on an Avengers t-shirt on him. finishedgrimm1 And here is a very nice angle of him. Awww man, he was born for the camera!!! grimm

More Bad Romances – Part 4

Time to take a break from BJDs! I’m surprised by how much BJDs can occupy one’s mind @_@ And nooooo, I haven’t forgotten about the Bad Romance(s) posts. This is part 4. I’ll try to group these under 1 category from now on.

tumblr_n7n1hmBZny1r4sqyeo1_400

Grimm is here! (Dollclans Kien)

Yahoo! My Dollclans Kien is finally home! I’ve been waiting for him since December I got him on a 2 month layaway and an unplanned trip to halfway across the world meant I had to change the layaway payment date in mid-January but Dollclans’ communication was surprisingly pleasant and very quick so I had no problems at all. The wait was painful though and then they charged me about $200 for customs. I’m not sure what happened but maybe I forgot to ask them to lower the value? I have no idea since my Iplehouse and Fairyland orders have been quite generous with customs.

…so yeah, although I was really happy with Kien’s arrival, his customs charge made me a bit sad Also, it’s quite a funny day considering I’ve decided to reshell my IOS Sezz into a Fifth Motif Venitu when I get the monies so Reiji is on his way to a new home soon, but here I am with a new doll arriving at my doorstep.

I’m also not sure why I decided to call him ‘Grimm’. He’s a character who is supposed to be quite shady, full of tricks up his sleeves and generally up to no good. I thought Kien’s sculpt was perfect. LOL.

WARNINGS: DOLL NUDITY, CRAPPY AMATEUR DOLL PHOTOGRAPHY

1. Yay! Dollclans box. It was a bit bashed in some sides though >o<

2. Dollclans don’t give you boxes, they give you bags. I thought the bag was pretty awesome. It means I could use to carry Grimm around or anyone else or I’d take it with me to the gym or when I go travelling XD You can see Kien’s COA on the front of the bag too.

3. I unzipped the bag and got lots of bubblewrap and a soft pillow where Kien was mummified with bubblewrap. So far Dollclans has given me the most bubblewrap out of any doll company @_@ I could also smell lots of resin and my hands got a bit itchy.

mummified doll!!!

4. Taking Kien out was a bit of a struggle but here he is! His headcap actually popped off halfway through haha. I didn’t get him with a faceup.

5. I made him stand to see how well he posed. He’s very light but sturdy. I forgot to censor his man bits so feast yer eyes!!! Man-junk galore. LOL LMAO SORRY!!!!

6. Here is Kien up close. The lighting in my house is very bad so he appears far more yellow than he is. He’s actually a very nice shade of ivory. I’ll try taking pics of him again in natural light and when I do his faceup over the weekend and change his eyes and wig him up (and dress him. Poor guy). I’m luvin’ his sculpt. It totally suits the character I have in mind for him.

I noticed that he has a very nice neck and he has these little horizontal lines across his chest.

So there you have it! Thank you for reading and looking

BJD Photography!

Something you must know about the BJD hobby is that owners take photos. These photos can look very professional or amateur. Me, I’m still a newbie to all this so I just make my doll stand somewhere and go snap-happy because I’m kinda lazy and don’t own a good camera of any sort. So today I will post up some really good photos of BJDs which really inspired me to get my own!

1. Fifth Motif Venitu

This is one of the best photos of Venitu I have seen in my entire life. I want this bad boy after seeing this picture:

2. Ringdoll dudes

Ringdoll is another company which has dolls which I want to get my hands on, namely Sol (the one with the blue hat). I still want him >o<

Here is another Ringdoll picture I really like :)

3. Soom Hyperon

I still want this guy very badly.

4. Iplehouse

I’ve uploaded a photo similar to this one from my blog before, but this was one of the photos that kickstarted my desire (LOL) to own an Iplehouse Felix and Claude. They’re really hot!!!!

5. Dollzone 

I’ve never wanted a Dollzone BJD, but HOT DAMN Dollzone Cosmo is looking good and super-realistic thanks to his super talented artist.

6. Angell Studio Tusu

Okay, so I really wanted this guy after this picture came out:

tusu_suntanned_version_by_angell_studio-d5i1s8h

But he is a limited edition and completely sold out on the website. I can’t find him anywhere :(

So there you have it! Some totally awe-inspiring BJD photography. Hope you enjoyed :3

Iplehouse Big Outfit Sale Haul 2015

A month ago, Iplehouse announced that they were holding a big outfit sale on certain clothes which would be cut down to 50% of the original price. So I had a look and OMFG! I went insane! I probably really shouldn’t have gone nuts…I mean, I wouldn’t do this in real-life…or would I? O_O

Iplehouse is known to be expensive so I really try to make orders count…But seeing certain items cut down to half price was really a godsend and I couldn’t resist! I have no self control.

So yeah, I went a bit lil’ mental and bought some goodies. I have included a picture of the stuff I got, in which I mostly got clothes for SID males since I have plans :) *cough*CLAUDE*cough*

I also bought an Iplehouse Lee head which was on sale on the DOA marketplace so he should be arriving sometime soon. Lee is discontinued so I was sooo happy I got him!!!! I need to hunt for a body though.

As usual, the items came nicely wrapped, all secure and tight by Iplehouse. I had to pay customs though :(

Here’s what I got:

And here is the breakdown!

Grey t-shirt

Baggy black pants

Grey jumper

Grey/black hoodie

Beige coat (now selling on ebay)

The awesome wool prom coat yay! It was half price whoohoo~

Black pullover

I also got the EID male layered cardigan and the cargo pants. I have no EID doll but I got it anyway in case my plans for the future change. I don’t have a picture of the layered cardigan because it was too dark and my camera couldn’t pick it up >_>

I only got 2 items for SID woman – the shirt in two colours, wine red and blue. The other items for sale for SID woman didn’t appeal to me much.

I can’t wait to try these on a doll hehe :)

ET is here! I mean, Fairyland Feeple60 Box Opening!

Hey everyone, more doll related stuff today. I noticed I had an unsubscriber and sniffed slightly, since, y’know, it happened after I began posting more and more about BJD stuff. I can’t help it if my hobbies turn a tide to a new direction. Don’t worry folks, I still like drawing and writing…just don’t do it often as much as I used to :(

Anyway, ET  Mirwen came home! I got her customs letter during the weekend and unfortunately only Tuesday was the nearest day available for delivery. To my dismay I then found out no-one was going to be at home. I went to work today panicking because I just couldn’t wait any longer.

I finished a 7pm shift and after calling my family to ask if anything came home, I was told I had missed 2 parcels but 1 was with the neighbours. I didn’t think it would be Mirwen since mostly all customs stuff I’ve had to sign for. I was like ‘NOOOOOOOOOO!’ at the thought of redelivery. I’ve been waiting since December for her.

when I came home my neighbour came over with a massive box for me and I was so happy :)

1. So this is Mirwen’s box. Those idiots at Parcelforce tried to open and see what it was because the back had a massive hole in it. When they saw the foam and Korean newspaper I guess they gave up.

The box and floor are one!!! (sorry)

1

2. Her box was red and slightly smaller than Aria’s. I knew Mirwen was about 55cm so was aware that she’d be a lot smaller. Her box was also very light too. Her box had an engraved symbol but no matter how many pictures I took of it it wouldn’t show up on my crappy camera >_<

She came with the Fairyland calendar whooo~~~

2

3. She came with a Feeple booklet and certificate. She was also covered in a black velvety foam thing.

3

4. As nice as the velvet foam thing was, Mirwen was covered in some bits of black fluff. OMG I touched her hand and the resin was so smooth @_@

5. Mirwen has a nice body. It’s so feminine but cute at the same time. I don’t know what hands she gave me and what bust size she is. And she’s actually a lot lighter than the other dolls I have *coughREIJIHESABEASTWEIGHTOFASMALLBABYcough* I think I really like the Fairyland Fepple60 size. They’re so nice and easy to handle.

5

6. I had Mirwen sit and stand. She poses well and can stand by herself. Her head is pretty big, which is why the first thought that ran through my mind was “ET?” Sorry I am weird like that. Just kidding though, I love Mirwen and her sculpt. She’s a baldy right now  because I haven’t ordered any clothes or a wig for her yet *_*

The eyes they gave her are waaaay too big. I also didn’t order her with a faceup because I wanted to do it myself.

Btw, has anyone got any ideas on how to remove her head? The magnets are stuck fast or something. I can’t seem to take it off.

7. So remember the black velvet padding? She’s got a little black stain on her back and butt :( That makes me sad.

Anyhoo, I can’t wait to dress her up and I’ll give her a faceup over the weekend so many thanks for looking :)

This is how I feel about BJDs…

This is how I feel about BJDs and the whole hobby right now:

giphy (12)

Mirwen’s on her way; she’s currently in customs which I have now paid off. I have also started a layaway for a Soom doll; I caved and ordered their newest Idealian range, York. Apparently he is the romantic-eyed version, with dreamboat K-pop boyband eyes or whatever lol. I really want Hyperon but when it was his ordering period I wimped out and was too scared to order from Soom, especially from some of the feedback I read about them online and on DOA. Then a part of me really didn’t think I wanted him. OMG how wrong I was.

 

I’ve never ordered an Idealian before so I wonder what they’re like; they are apparently 72cm high and bigger than Iplehouse EID men. Oh lordy. I bet clothing them will be even tougher. The pictures of R.York on the Soom site weren’t that great but I still ordered him anyway because it was those eyes that did it for me and that chin, nose and lips. Wham! Instant love. Soom was generous and gave buyers the option to get him in normal and tawny since originally he was just creamy white.

They also had this cowboy theme for him but he appeared very vampire-ish with those golden eyes of his and all.

romantic york

I believe York will come sometime in June or July. Me, being cheap as usual, didn’t order him with a faceup (maybe I should’ve??) I really have got to stop looking at these websites…
