Japanese Matsuri BJD Meet Up

Over the weekends, I was able to attended a Japanese Festival held once a year in my city. I had such a wonderful time and ate many Japanese food. Since we were having our local BJD meet up there, I brought Scarlett with me in a little luggage. Also, I forgot to mention that Scarlett finally got her new body. Scarlett is a Soom Breccia Soul Stealer on Fairyland Feeple65 body.

Ramen and Melon Cream Soda was very delicious!

They also have Takoyaki, which were my favorite! I had to wait a little over an hour to get these since they were so popular.. But it's so worth it.

There was a beautiful crane origami display!

There were many vendors selling things. My favorite is the air plant vendor!

They also have Shiba Inu that you can pet too! 

After a while of strolling we had our BJD meet up. I was late to the meet up since I was taking solo pictures of Scarlett at a different location so I did not get as much group pictures. 

On the way back, I saw this Scarlet flowers caught in a spider web and I thought I was beautiful.

And the last but not least, I want to share a little photoshoot I did of Scarlett that made me late to the meet up. 

As always thanks for checking my blog and see you next time! ^-^

2017 New Year Resolutions!

Happy New Year to everyone! These days I feel like time flies so fast... I feel like it was just last week I wrote my 2016 New Year Resolutions. Within 2016, I had major changes about my BJD family and I acquired many rare BJD outfits I thought was impossible to get my hands on (yes, the Fairyland Chole Moon Light was my ultimate grail outfit). Now I'm going to take a look at what I had wrote for my 2016 New Year Resolutions and go over it

This picture of Valentine was my submission for the Freedom Teller's Hash Tag Event.

2016 New Year Resolutions

- Buy Lucien his body
       Completed, I got him a Spirit Doll 70cm Proud body ver.2.

- Buy Oscar Eyes for my YOSDs.
       Completed, I got many pairs of eyes for my YOSDs and SDs. 

- Send my dolls out for face up commissions.
       Completed, I sent Raine, Anri, and new Scarlett to a face up artists.

Raine and Anri!

New Scarlett, isn't she beautiful.

- String Vincent (Soom Dia)
       Completed, I string him up and gave him a face up. I also changed his name from "Vincent" to "Valentine".

- Sell my Soom Lilid TG mountain lion body.

- Buy air brush and compressor for face up.
       Completed! Though, I'm still trying to get a hang of it.

- Get more SD girls in my crew (maybe Little Monica Sophia or Sarubia).
       Slight changes. I want a brown Little Monica Sophia but LM did not re-release tan/brown option. And I bought new Scarlett. 

- Get Little Monica Elena.
       I changed my mind and want to put LM Elena on hold.

- Start saving up for Iplehouse Arvid (I would like to save at least up to 75% of his price).
       Failed. I didn't save up for Scarlett's husband at all. Also I decided to change the sculpt for him. I will be settling with Soom Hyperon in tawny with scar face instead.     

- Buy more accessories for my crew (especially shoes).
       Completed. Ordered many pairs from DollHeart and rRabit.

- Get better zoom lens for my DSLR.

- Paint more face up.
       Completed. I painted my Soom Dia (Valentine), new Scarlett, and my friend's Fairyland Feeple65 Roke.

Here is my friend's Roke's face up, she requested that his face up looks natural and minimal with nice thick eyebrows. I mainly used the air brush for him.

I also gave my friend's Roke a partial upper body blush (she requested that I don't blush the elbows and the wrist-ball joints).

- Try not to buy anymore unplanned dolls.
       Succeed, I did not buy any unplanned doll.

9/13 = Completed
2/13 = Failed
2/13 = Changed 

Also here are some goals I achieved along the way that was unexpected.

- Bought the third and the last of the Mischievous Trios (FoF Peak's Woods- Missing Pilot in suntan).
       Completed. I originally had my eyes on Soom Bygg in tan with the romantic head and with no horn but it was unlikely that Soom will release him. Then PW released the Missing Pilot and I knew this sculpt would work very well for the character.

- Bought IOS doll 60cm male body.
       Completed. This body will be used for my character, Skyler.

- Managed to find and purchased the second hand Feeple65 Chole Moon Light outfit. 
       Completed. It's so beautiful, this dress is definitely worth it.

- Purchased some of my favorites Soom outfits in second hand market.
       Completed. I found many unique Soom dresses this year: SFC1309, SFC1111, and SFC1110.

- Bought a Feeple65 female body on layaway 3/4 payments completed. This will be Scarlett's new body.
       Completed. Scarlett's character is supposed to have a very feminine curvy body and Feeple65 fits the bill. Scarlett's Soom body will go to another girl. 

Overall I think I did great, I completed more goals than I did last year. And here are my new resolutions for this year:

2017 New Year Resolutions

- Buy Fairyland Lucywen (She'll be my first MSD) 

- Finish paying for my Feeple65 female body.

- Buy Angora wig for Lucien.

- Buy more clothes for FL Lucywen.

- Buy brown Harmony Sophia if LM offers tan/brown skin again. 

- Buy Cannon EF 100mm Macro zoom len.

- Save up for Soom Hyperon with scar face in tawny (at least 50%).

- Look for Switch Soseo head. He's going to be my OC, Skyler.

- Look for an Iplehouse Pamela head. Or look for a split partner.

- Keep looking for more unique outfits.

- Work on my BJD stories. 

- Keep practicing on my face up skill.

- Maybe commission an outfit.

13 goals again, I hope I will be able to complete most of the goal by the end of the year! And thank you everyone for visiting my blog! I really appreciates when you guys take time and comment, I love talking to each and everyone of you. <3

The Mischievous Trios is Complete! (PW the Missing Pilot Box Opening)

My Peak's Woods box has finally arrived and I'm very excited since this will be my first tanned doll. Back when PW came out with the Star Prince FoFs I knew that I had to have the Missing Pilot especially when they offered the tan skin option. I put him on layaway and I asked PW to painted his face up like the Star Prince even though I thought that they wouldn't be able to. But to my surprise they agreed and they didn't charge me anything extra for the face up change.

Raine and Anri are my little helpers!

A very pretty blue box!

CoA, pretty postcards, Oscar eyes, FOC Lolita Special nails hands for Scarlett. And I forgot that I ordered the brown boots too.

Here he is!!! As for his name, I still haven't decided it yet so if you can think of any name that goes with Raine and Anri please comment below. ^-^

I love this face up so much!

Thanks for stopping by~

Soom FCE R. Breecia/ Sweet Witch body + FL Moonlight outfit (ノ´ヮ´)ノ*:・゚✧

Hello! I'm super excited for this post. This is going to be my Soom FCE R. Breccia head with Sweet Witch body and parts box opening! I ordered her the same day Soom opened their FCE on June 22nd and she arrived on September 6th. This is definitely the fastest shipping from Soom doll I had so far.

*Doll Nudity Warning*

And now, the box opening! Here is the Soom Super Gem box.

When I opened the box, all the Sweet Witch parts were individually wrapped and no breakage on any parts.  

Here is the normal hands and the normal heeled feet. I personally think the hands are lacking in details.

These are Sweet Witch hands and Sweet Witch high heels parts. I love the Sweet Witch hands, I can't wait to blush it.

Here is Sweet Witch wings and Sweet Witch tail. I love the cute heart shaped tail the most!!

And of course, R. Breccia head! <333 

Soom send out these doll pouch that's very convenient. They protect the dolls very well in my opinion.  

She's free~ I just noticed that she hand that magnetic hands mechanism.

I painted Scarlett's temporary face up at my friend's house. Unfortunately, I forgot to bring my soft pastels to her house so I bought a cheapest small set of soft pastels I could find at the craft store near my friend's house. Honestly, I don't really like her face up... Some of the colors are not what I imagined (That's what I get for not stopping when I ran out of natural light sources.. lesson learned). And the gold eyeliners did not show up as vibrant as I wanted it to be. Plus, I think I air blushed her head too much (I was working in low light condition and could not see very well).

Also, Scarlett is supposed to have the red Oscar Eyes, but it's not here yet. And her "original" hair is long black wavy wig from Crobidoll, but I still haven't found a solution to tame that wig. Plus, Scarlett is a succubus demon that can shape-shift her appearances, so she often have different hairstyles and eyes. 

On another note, I tested out Scarlett's posabilities. She can easily touched her head, and she has a wide range of her wrist movements.  

She has the Soom's extra type body. That means she has that extra thigh joints.

Also, this is her back view. Since she has the Sweet Witch body, she has the magnetic wing slots on her back. However, she does not have a tail slot but she does have a very strong magnetic around her tail bone area.  

She can bend back nicely and she keeps her balance very well.

Like most female dolls with "under the busts" chest piece, she can only slouch forward.

And here is a better look at her back notches.

She can easily sit on a chair while holding the crossed-legged position.  

Overall, I think her body is very fun to pose. She is definitely able to pose more easily than my Female Senior Delf Type 3 body.

~*~*~*~*~Next Part~*~*~*~*~

Before I go into details about the dress, I forgot to mention that I ordered six pairs of shoes from Doll Heart a long while back. The brown boots and the oxford shoes are for my SD13/17 boys. The sneakers are for my YOSD teenies. And the three pairs on the right are for my SD13/16 girls. 

And now this is the dress I've been dying for years, the Fairyland Chloe's Moonlight outfit. I can't believe I got a hold of it. It's GORGEOUS!!! The material is this silky soft pink/gold and it's shimmery! I love those dangly beads on the dress.

I was too lazy to put on the stockings on her... But look at those cute shoes!

A full body shot of this beautiful dress! Everything is well made and very detailed. 

A closed-up details of the top piece and her head accessories.

Thank you for reading, I hope you like this post! ^-^ See you next time~
