It's the last post in the series of redressing dolls. I enjoyed going through the majority of my dolly things, organizing, and getting dolls ready for the cabinet. I decided to end the series with Ruruko -- She's so loved by so many, including myself. She is dressed in an Azone fashion and Barbie-like shoes. She looks like she is ready to bring on the holidays, but she has a little while to wait.
It is still dress up time around here and I have put together a few new fun ensembles for the doll cabinet. Above are two Momoko dressed in a variety of items, most of which is from Sekiguchi. The striped bag is from La Boutique. The brown shoes were originally from an Only Hearts doll set.
Below is a Pure Neemo decked out in all kinds of different Azone pieces. It might be a little hard to tell, but she has a sword. These dolls have a ton of articulation and are always fun to pose and dress.
It's dolly dress up time! I finally decided to go through the scary room of doll boxes, get organized, and scale down the collection. In the process, I pulled out some of my dolls and played dress up with items I want to keep. I realized I haven't really dressed dolls for fun in years. A large portion of my collection is used as models for fashions in the Etsy shop and they do not get much use otherwise.
Above is a Petworks Momoko in the vintage 1960s Red Flare Barbie outfit. It's a little big, but I LOVE the combination. Below are two Momoko dressed in lots of different pieces from Sekiguchi, Clear Lan, Azone, and Petworks.
After a busy time at IFDC in Las Vegas this year, I brought home all my fun finds in the sales room and decided to mix and match my new Momoko. The Momoko is a reroot with pastel pink hair. She is wearing a dress intended for BJDs and is a little big, but looks really cute with the Momoko shoes and Azone white hat.
For a little while, Dolly Bureau 1 & 2 will be on sale in the Etsy shop. Get ready for the release of Dolly Bureau volume 3 this summer. This year the book will still have some patterns, but it will also have many other features that focus on tiny dolls. It will include highlighting different kinds of tiny dolls, pattern drafting, craft tutorials, and other fabulous handmade works by dolly enthusiasts.
