A Happy Box Momoko from PetWORKs was deboxed today and redressed. Rather than quickly putting a new outfit on her like the Momoko 18HB sg in this post, I took a little more time finding an interesting ensemble for this Momoko. She is wearing a coat I made in my early sewing days from a pattern in a Doll Coordinate Recipe book, as well as a dress from an unknown maker. She is wearing shoes made for Momoko and a couple extra fun accessories.
In the midst of doing taxes, my doorbell rang to reveal the USPS delivered a very special package to me -- my new PetWORKs Happy Box 2018 Momoko dolls arrived! I always look forward to trying to get a Happy Box when they are offered and I was fortunate enough to get it this year.
Pictured is the Momoko 18HB sg version with the "Pale-Green x Silver Mix, Wolf-Short" hair, according to PetWORKs. I quickly redressed her and took her outside to get a couple photos. She is wearing a Clear Lan top, Barbie sunglasses and watch, Sekiguchi denim shorts, and PetWORKs Momoko shoes. She definitely needs an extra special outfit soon. I really love this doll. I even like the basic outfit that came with the doll. I wasn't sure about the haircut, but it grew on me when I saw her in person.
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'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.
A lovely new Momoko arrived at my front door a couple of days ago and she deserves her own special post. The ae STB First Love Momoko is really something special with her darling corset and honey face. Anyone who knows me well is pretty aware of my need to collect dolls in white/off white clothing, so this doll was a must-have in this house. Her simple makeup is really a great match too. What do you think of the Momoko? Post about it on the Facebook page.
