Oooh How Did She Slink In?

On the 4th October another little resin girlie managed to sneak her way into my BJD collection....as always, I will use my regular excuse that this little 'purchase' was my way of helping the Spanish economy!!  What a hero I am!!  But I do like to do my bit to help out my fellow countryfolk 😊

My latest arrival is called Annic and she is a 22.5cm tall resin ball jointed doll sculpted by Laura Garijo who is from Sevilla, Spain, and is the name behind Irrealdoll.  Laura groups her dolls by size and each grouping has a name.  The dolls belonging to this size group are called Setitas and Annic is the second doll of this size sculpted by Laura.  On Laura's website, Irrealdoll Annic she explains the inspiration behind the 'Annic' name:

"Her name was inspired by a beautiful deep blue mushroom known as "Entoloma Panniculus" in the scientific spheres"

Annic comes in two skin tones, 'Peanut', which is quite light and what is often referred to as 'normal' skin in the bjd world, and 'Truffle'.....I chose Truffle because as you'll know from reading my blog, I have a real fondness for tan skinned dolls.  The colour is lovely, very soft and creamy and I'm very glad this was my choice.

I chose Annic with the 'sad' faceup because, well you know that too....I love sad faced dolls!!!  She really does look like she's about to cry in some photos, which I find very endearing.  She arrived nude but with a pair of tiny, random coloured, 6mm glass eyes.  The eyes that I received were a light green but I decided to try her with a pair of slightly bigger, 8mm, violet although naturally for me, I would like to get her a pair of brown ones at some point.

I love this small size, she can wear lots of different Blythe outfits and even some (but not all) Blythe footwear.  Fortunately I'd bought 6 pairs of shoes and boots in advance of her arrival, so she's got lots of choice at the moment.  

Her wig size is 4 inches and I had a wig in mind for her but wasn't sure that it suited her once I tried it, but I've now cut it shorter so below you'll see photos of her before and after it was cut.  She's currently wearing a hat in the hope that it'll flatten the sides down a bit.  I do so wish that the doll companies made wigs that not only fit the size of the dolls head, but also were in scale.  I don't like wigs that have waaaay too much hair for such tiny heads!





Sam, my Elfdoll Hana Angel, has wanted a friend in her size and scale, for ages.  So now she is happy to have Annic to hang out with πŸ˜‰ I think the two of them look quite cute together!




Here the two girls are playing "One potato, two potatoes, three potatoes, four!" 


Trying out a Blythe dress that I made years ago...


Photos taken today after her hair cut....I hope I don't regret it, the wig was nice but I just didn't want such long hair on this tiny girl!





Thank you for visiting!  I do so hope you've enjoyed seeing this little new arrival and hope you're all having a good week so far.  I might not be around for a week or so because my son Brendan arrives tomorrow for a weeks holiday with us.....he was supposed to arrive tonight but that's a story for another day.

Big hugs, Sharon xxx

  3. Dear Sharon, I think she is the cutest sad-faced doll I have ever seen. I just want to give her a hug. I love the pink and turquoise outfit. I like her with both long and short hair.
    I echo Liz: I sure wish you were sewing for my dolls!

    1. Awww thanks Dorothy, that's lovely of you to say so. I think she definitely could do with hugs, she's so sad looking and yet I don't know why, she is being quite spoilt already! ;)
      Maybe one day I will get back to sewing commissions again :)

  4. Oh wow! ANOTHER gorgeous gal, I love this size doll Sharon and I have to resist with all my might, just as I did with Sandra's...yes I was a good girl and resisted the temptation, but it wasn't an easy task believe me.


    I like the styling you have given her, that first hat really suits her to a T and I adore those boots! No I shall not purchase any, I have enough already to start a shop of my own. :)

    Big hugs,
    X

  5. Annic is wonderful. Her outfits are perfect and I especially love the purple one with the dotted hat, super cool tights and great boots. Her expression is perfect and so nice that she has a lovely friend. 😊 xxx

  6. I am always into helping ones country economically, well - I can help other countries too, as long as there is something cute for me! Count me in!

    Irrealdoll is something I have heard about and I do adore these cuties! And Annic (love the name and the inspirations behind the name) is totally one cutie, congrats! She goes well with Sam!

    And if you regret the haircut, there are always wigs waiting to be bought. I did one ’bad’ haircut decision once and it made me order a new one. But I think that you do not have to worry, she looks cute in her shorter wig!

    Hugs and enjoy the weekend!

    1. Thank you for your comments Niina, and also thank you on behalf of Spain if you decide to help our economy too LOL!!! :D
      I love the name too, which is why, so far, I've not been able to think of a better name for her, I think Annic suits her perfectly....but I will keep thinking about it. I did think maybe Anis might be nice, or perhaps Anais, I'm leaning towards the latter at the moment.
      So far I'm not regretting the haircut as it's come out ok, and has been nicely flattened by the hat. I will take more photos of her soon, I have been very busy with my son visiting from the UK, but he has gone back now so I'll hopefully be back to my dolls and my blog really soon!

    1. Thank you so much Theresa...I promise that I will give her some of those reassuring hugs you mention....though to be honest, she doesn't look that much happier regardless ;)
