I've been very naughty 'dolly-spending-wise' this week and today has been no exception! Last night a friend of mine in the US sent me a link to a doll for sale on the BJD forum, Den of Angels. The doll, an Iplehouse KID Lonnie in peach skin, is one I have been sitting on the fence over for several months, never being able to decide if 1) she was for me, or 2) whether I can be 'doing' with the long wait when ordered directly from the company. So until now, I've just enjoyed looking at other people's photos of them. One person who's photos I've always enjoyed, Randomfish, has, within recent months, added a little Lonnie to her collection of lovely dolls....and because I enjoy her blog and seeing her Lonnie, it sort of pushed me over the edge....and this morning I contacted the seller of Lonnie on DOA, made her an offer and bought her. The doll will be coming from Australia so won't be here for a couple of weeks, but of course the guilt started straight away. I don't know why I always feel so guilty over dolly purchases, especially as I only spend what I have in my paypal account .... it must be the Catholic upbringing!!! Or maybe it is my mums voice ringing in my head, telling me that I "must have more money than sense!"
Of course I could just blame Randomfish.....and be completely guilt free! I wonder how she'd feel about that! :)
Anyway, obviously I don't have any of my own photos yet, so here are a few from the company, Iplehouse in S.Korea. The doll is 34.5cm tall and has Face Up B.
In other dolly news, I found a head for my Mini Fee body and that is on it's way from the Netherlands as I write. It is a Rheia head with gorgeous default faceup from Fairyland. Her body is here waiting for her and wearing an outfit that I made yesterday for her. I will take photos once the body and head are reunited!
