I thought I'd share some doll photos that I took yesterday. It was a lovely sunny afternoon and the light was just right upstairs on the terrace for some dolly photos.
First we have little Angelina, our visiting Toddler from Wales. Yes, I know I mentioned a couple of weeks ago that she was going home, but she got another modelling assignment so her mummy kindly agreed for her to stay a little longer....and no, it's not true that I'm hoping she'll forget where she lives and want to stay here....although that is a tempting thought LOL ;)
Here she can be seen modelling a bright green fine corderoy hooded coat, fully lined in green and white striped shirting fabric. The coat is going to live with another little Toddler in the US.
I then took photos of some of my BJDs. These first two photos are of my Lati Yellow gang, all 16cm tall, fully jointed resin girls from South Korea. I realised yesterday that one of these, the little blond, second from the left, has been here almost 8 years now! She was my first Lati Yellow and I bought her back in the days when there was no quibble over that company's quality or customer service....and no waiting 9 months in those days!
Next is my one remaining Volks Yosd girl, she is Megu, one of the 'four sisters' and has a custom faceup by Nomyens. I call her Faun. It used to be said that Volks owners were 'elitist' and although I don't agree with that statement, I have to say that I love Volks dolls, they just feel so nice in your hands, and they pose very naturally. I like that Fairyland dolls have great posing but in a lot of ways it feels quite 'mechanical' whereas Volks dolls feel as if they are posing themselves...if that makes sense!! Having had many Volks dolls over the last 9 years that I've been in the BJD hobby, I still feel they are one of the best BJDs on the market!
And finally here is Fiona, she is a Fairyland Little Fee Ante who's been here with me since April 2009 having come to live with me from California. She has a default faceup and she poses really well as you'd expect.
I hope you've enjoyed seeing some of my doll photos!
