Although I love my Sashas and my Little Darlings and they've been getting a lot of my attention recently, my love of my BJDs, which I've had since 2006, has never really gone away and was boosted recently by my birthday present from my husband, which hasn't arrived yet so I will leave that for when she does!
I've been looking at a BID (BID literally means Baby Iplehouse Doll) by Iplehouse, a south Korean company that make beautifully realistic looking sculpts in various sizes, the BID is 26cm tall, a size I particularly like and am now tempted to add one to my collection. I have actually had one in the past and for one reason or another sold her.
I absolutely love the 'choosing' stage when buying a new doll, the joy of looking at the company's website, the researching of 'in real life' photos of the different sculpts on Flickr and Den of Angels....such a lot of fun, but sooooo time consuming!!! And the narrowing down of the different choices.......I tell you, if I'd did this much research on my school homework as a child, I'd have been a brain surgeon by now! LOL
So here's who I've been looking at. All of my choices would be in 'special real skin' which is a lovely creamy tan, because it photographs best for me here in southern Spain where the light is so clear and bright.
The first girl is called Bordy and I think she'd look wonderful in a Tibetan lambswool wig with maybe deep brown eyes, and bright colourful clothing (and we all know how much I like bright colours!) just like a little Afro Caribbean child, don't you think?

The other one I've been looking at is Bonnie, she's not shown on their site in my skin colour choice but these photos give an idea of her face shape. I just find it very hard to visualise the other skin colour though.....I need to find more photos! And so another search begins.......
Thank you for listening to my musings, I guess I should say to "watch this space!"
Hope everyone is having a great weekend!
