For Adoption: HOM

Filed under: Girls For Adoption — Tags: , — theblythemummy @ 4:34 am

HOM

So unfortunately the answer is YES.

HOM is a beautiful girl with the softest make up and prettiest eye colors… however, she simply fails to connect with me. I might regret this in future but this poor girl was very neglected.

She’s developing self doubts as she simply does not understand what it is that other girls have and she does not have that caused her to sit quietly on the shelf all by herself all this time. I am very guilty of dolly abuse with her. The only right thing to do is to let her go to a new mummy who will love her.

She is in pristine condition. No scratches or stains. She will go nude to her new mummy, along in her box and stand.

Asking for: USD$280
Postage: USD$30 to European countries and USD$25 to all other countries via Registered Post.

Drop me a note to find out more about her.

Sonia is a kooky freelance writer who lives in the lovely city of Paris. When she is not busy meeting deadlines, she will be roaming the streets of Paris taking delightful pictures of the city she loves most in the world.

She also takes pleasure in sitting at the cafe and watching the world goes by over her cup of espresso.

You will most likely find her at Hotel Costes during her free evenings, hanging out with her girlies and waiting to pounce on her next exclusive feature.

This is Sonia, getting ready for a big night out, in true, glamourous Parisian style.

Baby… We are in a recession….

Halle

My baby Halle is in disbelief that I refused to take her out shopping.

With the recession, it’s back to dolly love. Lots and lots of dolly love. I find it impossible to cut down on my purchases of these babies and so the only way I can justify these purchases is to spend lots and lots of time with them.

It’s also probably back to sewing lots and lots of clothes as their Mummy is not going back to shopping anytime soon.

Ponyo my red hair mohair!

Filed under: Adopted Girls, Blythe Diary, My Little Customization Tips — Tags: — theblythemummy @ 12:55 pm

So I was talking about rerooting a mohair in my last post (yes it’s been months!!) and I am happy to be able to say that I survived my first mohair reroot.

Compared to rerooting saran, I prefer mohair because it is a lot faster. However, not wanting to go down the lane of dyeing raw mohair, I was restricted to ordering pre dyed mohair. There are  simply not a lot of choices out there when you are looking for pre dyed mohair and if you want them beyond 6 inches. But I still think it turned out well despite the limitations.

I picked Silky, my Save The Animal doll for this project. I decided I wanted a little tanned girl to carry off that red hair. Plus I hated how I ruined her scalp from my first wefting projecting. I replaced her old scalp with a cool cat scalp for this project. Cool cat scalps fit amazingly and although it is slightly taller than the regular head dome, it does not matter much in this case because it will be covered by all that mohair fluffiness anyway.

So here’s Ponyo, my creation, dressed in Louos Loves. She’s already on her way to her new mummy. I really hope she likes her as much as I did.

I think I will be keeping the next mohair reroot and Louos Loves set for myself.

Meet Marshmellow

Filed under: Blythe Diary — theblythemummy @ 9:38 am

I admit. I have been neglecting my girls. I got Marshmellow at the end of June and never got around to letting her out until recently. It’s no wonder that she is mad at me and throwing a hissy fit. She demanded that i put her back into the box, refused to meet the other girls and sits outside the room to sulk and pout. 

But what’s a girl got to do when she has more pressing issues on hand. Like getting orders in time for production, like socializing and like keeping her online shops updated? The past two months have been a little nightmarish. But I am happy to say.. that I finally have my Blog Shop up and I am  hoping that all my friends here who have been coming back to visit me on this blog, will indulge me the same way for my blog shop and go take a peek there sometimes.

It’s not the most sophisticated thing around and still needs tweaking but I sure hope that my stash of goodies from my wardrobe will make up for the lack of IT glitz. Do drop by at http://www.lefashionbible.blogspot.com if you have a chance and forward it to your friends if you like the things you see. Thank you!

I am getting a little worried about my expanding family. I was half hoping that my blythe obsession will go away after a while but I know it’s not going to happen anytime soon.

In the meantime, I am getting scared of my credit card bills (Eleanor and 3 other girls last month!!!) and have decided to do the right thing by letting another group of girls go. 

Groovy Groove,nude, without stand – USD$150

Asia Butterfly Encore, NRFB – USD$140

Tommy Feb 6, nude with stand – USD$160

HOM, NRFB, still in shipper box – USD$225

Skate Date Superior, with most stock, no stand, no box  – USD$150

Marilyn (Customized Saffy) – white marilyn dress,stand and box – USD$130

Registered Shipping at $25 USD flat.

Feel free to ask any questions on the adoption procedure! In the meantime, I am going to pray for a miracle and hope that the bank forgets to send me my credit card bill!

Project of the Month – Mohair Blythe

Filed under: Blythe Diary, My Little Customization Tips — Tags: , — theblythemummy @ 5:52 am

I have decided. My Project Blythe this month will be a mohair doll. I was contemplating putting my STA (Silky) up for adoption since I barely play with it. Deep down, I also know the real reason behind that. The reason is her glaring scalp line and it is my fault too. I had failed to remove her scalp properly the first time and it had resulted in mangled or none existent flange. Never EVER attempt customization when feeling down and out!

I was putting her up for adoption on TIB when it suddenly hit me that I do not have a Mohair Blythe. I stopped typing. I do like STA. I think she’s a very classy, elegant chick, albeit the original Mumsy hair that she came with and my failed attempt at giving her luscious locks. What if, just what if… I give her another new look. She could be my first mohair baby. 

My search for mohair started. The Bountiful Baby site scared the shit out of me and I had to get out  of that site as soon as I can without buying anything. I did not want wefted mohair from Coolcat, besides the hair looks like a mess and the colors looked unimaginative. I spent the last two hours researching on Mohair and found that 1) bad news is that there are not many sites that sells nice dyed mohair that ships overseas and 2) good news is that shearing months are in August (yipee!) which means there will be lots of mohair to go about soon.

I have emailed 2 sellers who looked like they might be willing to dye the hair for you at reasonable prices. Now I am just playing the waiting game. I will come back with more information on this site once I have found my source. 

Wish me good luck!

The Sample Piece

Filed under: Blythe Diary — Tags: , — theblythemummy @ 3:59 am

I had a new design idea last week and worked on it over the nights in front of the TV. This is the end result of lots of drawing, cutting and re cutting before I finally got what I wanted.

The complete set

 

The Alternate Look

 

I am pretty pleased with the results. I think all the girls will get a set of this. It’s a HUGE project, but I know I will enjoy it. Now I only have to figure out how to sew the tights which really, can’t be all that difficult right?
