This year at IFDC 2017, I had the pleasure of seeing some allnurds merchandise in person! Oh my gosh, I love being one degree closer to all the lovely things that I see in Japanese doll mooks. I seriously LOVE this outfit. I accessorized the blouse, skirt, socks, and bag with a pair of Momoko sneakers, Momoko hat, and Dynamite Girls sunglasses.
Many of the pages in the adult coloring book, Dolly Coloring Studio, are inspired by a variety of different dolls. Occasionally, the dolls in the book get to wear clothing that appears in Vogue magazine! The Dolly Coloring Studio page highlighted in this post is inspired by vintage Barbie and a few pieces found in the September 2010 issue of Vogue. The doll is wearing a dress inspired by Dagmar with clips and a brooch by House of Lavande (pictured below, bottom right corner).
Next week I will be attending the Pacific Northwest BJD Expo (aka PNW Expo) and I'm bringing this lovely outfit with me. It's a pink dress for MSD ball-jointed dolls. It also fits Ellowyne Wilde and a variety of other dolls. I love the sparkle and beading! Only one extra was made and will be sold at the PNW Expo. If unsold, it will pop up on Etsy soon.
Perhaps it is too much pink, but I just couldn't help adding all the pink pieces to the doll. Pictured is Peak's Woods Lady Bee (older body).
Dolly Bureau books have a few patterns for Momoko, but I think this is one is my favorite. The set is a jacket, skirt, and blouse. It can be found in volume 1 of the Dolly Bureau series. The Momoko pictured is Beach Rodeo. She is also wearing glasses by Randall Craig. The book is still in print and you can make the outfit too! See below for more details.
In Dolly Bureau (vol 3), I made a few patterns for tiny dolls, one of which is a design for PukiPuki. Pictured below is the final result of the pattern, which has easy-to-follow written and illustrated instructions in the book. Best of all, the clothing should fit other dolls like Mattel Kelly and Ruby Red Galleria's Honee-B.
