THE DOLLY COLLECTOR TAG πŸŽ€

Whee, here I am! πŸ™ˆ Being in front of the camera is a completely different experience, but at least I had good company. πŸ˜‰ This tag is really old, but I thought that it would be a nice way to introduce myself to you. That being said, it took me three times to film this thing and lots of computer crashes while editing, so to finally be able to share it, is my own personal miracle! 😹

Thank you so much for watching! πŸ’• Theri Continue reading THE DOLLY COLLECTOR TAG πŸŽ€

My Dolly Week #70: Pushing Yourself!

Rise being a wa lolitaLast Sunday something inside of my head clicked. It is always difficult to pin down the exact moment, when things change. I am constantly thinking about this blog, about the content I post and hope to produce in the future. And with my regular posting schedule I was starting to feel comfortable. This comfortable feeling is dangerous because it also means that you are caught up in a routine that could easily go on forever – and this is not what I want because I want to do and learn so much more! It also dawned on me that this comfortable space was only an illusion because there were certain things at the back of my head, who I did not dare to touch. And still, the more I ignored them, the more my longing to actually face them grew! Continue reading My Dolly Week #70: Pushing Yourself!

My Dolly Week #67: Summer Holiday Edition!

I fell down this summer’s extremely hot rabbit hole. Right now, as all of Europe and so many other parts of the world are suffering from the heat, I got lazy and could not stand sitting in front of the computer. But good news: As it turns out, my fan was hidden behind some boxes with Christmas stuff and I need to share so many novelties with you that I cannot wait!

My cutest Ruri on vacation!Ruri-chan has helped me a lot to get out of my summer funk and to enjoy my staycation with dressing up in summery clothes and enjoying frozen treats. While I prefer frozen grapes nowadays, Ruri loves kawaii parfaits to stay cool! Continue reading My Dolly Week #67: Summer Holiday Edition!

My Dolly Week #55: Pullip Bonnie & Little Else!

Okay, that title is not exactly true. I did receive Vivi, Pullip Bonnie, last week and dolly time felt limited, but in my private life a looot happened. Basically, my husband is changing jobs and is finally able to work in his dream profession, which equally means that we are not going to have opposite schedules anymore! Wheee for more sleep and a normal daily routine! πŸ™‚

Pullip Bonnie, I named her Vivi. Continue reading My Dolly Week #55: Pullip Bonnie & Little Else!

My Dolly Week #48: Pullip Rides!

Minnie and her Barbie vespaA fresh Sunday, a fresh Dolly Week! This week allowed me to finally get back into taking pictures and to work more on my blog. Plus my 2017 review finally went up, which was a surprisingly difficult post to write. Probably because it’s hard to put a whole year in a nutshell and not to go too much into detail. That being said, 2018 has been a quite ambivalent ride so far. For 21 days a lot of strange and unpleasant things have happened in lieu with me getting over them, which marks this time as very important for my personal growth. And at the end of the day, I still can come back to my dolls and Komonogatari to enjoy the lightness of being!

One more portrait of Minnie!In my childhood I was a big Barbie fan and my collection in my parents’ house counts about 30 Barbie and Barbie family dolls. Barbie accessories for Pullips can be (as I had to bitterly learn) a hit and miss, but a clear hit is Minnie’s pink and yellow vespa, which has the perfect size! This week I managed only to do a portrait shot, since Minnie was always in danger of eating the floor, even though I had bought some fishing line and wire. Your girl simply does not know how to properly use them yet to at least visually defy gravity. There are so many adventures I want Minnie to go on, so I will work harder!

Komonogatari’s 2017 Review!

I always feel weird, when there is no proper review before or right after a new year begins. This blog will turn one year old at the end of February, which marks 2017 as its most important year, since starting new things is always the biggest step to take. Many wonderful things happened this year and I am happy to share them with you!

Luise, my Pullip LupinusPullip Customizing

One year ago I did not have any clue about customizing my Pullips. Changing eyechips was a terrifying thought and I did not get the appeal of re-wigging, even though I detected some quality issues with certain stock wigs. I did however start to change them out of their stock clothes, mainly because I wanted my Pullip Sailor Neptune not to be battle ready all of the time and to be able to relax with the other girls. (Imagine all of your dolls wearing long lolita-type dresses and then there is Sailor Neptune right next to them in a mini skirt and bare legs.) As soon as I had discovered Etsy, a new world opened up with that many creators of doll clothes and accessories around the world, there are truly limitless possibilities to get creative!

My Dolly Week #44: Christmas Festivities and Their Consequences!

Welcome to the 44th Dolly Week and let me tell you: Celebrating with my family and all of my dolls swallowed all of my energy! I am still recovering. Especially my dolls look like the sweetest cuties, but they are such party animals in real life! I am a bit afraid of what New Year’s Eve will look like! Yikes! πŸ˜€ Furthermore, I am working through the holidays this year and I was so tired yesterday that I completely overslept. Thankfully, I did not get up to late, but you can imagine that I am not the best version of myself right now! >< But(!): I am SO excited to make more dolly content! It is a bit weird to me that I am not uploading daily anymore on my Instagram, but I still have some pictures up my sleeve and want to do a nice photoshoot for New Year’s Eve and New Year’s Day!

My Poison Girls Mayu, Rise & RuriOn Christmas Eve I wanted to share this picture of my Poison Girl cuties, who are wearing some of my favorite outfits and Mayu and Ruri are carrying Christmas handbags from La Prinfresa. I simply love Rudolph and the little Christmas tree. Their quality is out of this world and the details are simply so nice! I will use them every year from now on and I also saw online that they look so nice as ornaments on dolly sized trees! If that does not sound like a good investment, I truly do not know, what is! πŸ˜‰ Continue reading My Dolly Week #44: Christmas Festivities and Their Consequences!

My Dolly Week #43: A New Batch of Twins!

Pullip Cassie & Pullip CalliePullip Cassie & Pullip CallieIt’s one week before Christmas and the air is feeling festive, while the days are getting shorter. Last week I shared my final dolly additions of the year on my Instagram: Pullip Callie and Pullip Cassie from Groove’s Creator’s Label line. They are collaborations with doll artists Happydolly/Memento and as kawaii as can be. Callie and Cassie are supposed to be twin sisters, so their face ups are super similar. Their biggest difference, in my opinion, lies in the shape of their lips. At first I only wanted to get one sister, but as you probably know, I am a weak soul. This is how these cuties are already the third pair of sisters in my collection after Clara and Chloi, Laura and Alura. Last week both of them were put into the ‘Last Chance’ section of Pullip Style, which means that they are not awaiting any further shipments of those two. I cannot say that I am surprised that they are selling out-and I can absolutely recommend them: They completely look like custom dolls and they come with a huge amount of stock pieces out of the highest quality! I named my Cassie ‘Hermione’ after my grandmother and Hermione Granger and my Callie is called ‘Audrey’ after my favorite actress Audrey Hepburn. πŸ™‚

Pullip Mayu in her gingerbread dress!Pullip Mayu in panda clothes!Mayu is wearing her festive dress from Mota de AlgodΓ³n and looks absolutely enchanting! A few weeks ago, I was sceptical, whether Christmas-themed doll clothing would be ‘worth’ it, but after shopping around a bit, I have to say that it makes me super happy to see cuties like Mayu being enamored in their golden colored gingerbread dresses. Could you tell that theΒ  dress she is wearing, is actually made for Blythes?! It has such a nice fit on Mayu’s 27cm obitsu! I am so happy and cannot wait to show you some more of her in the next week! My goal for Mayu is to completely dress her up in kawaii clothes in the future. I think, it was the first step to turn her into a little panda girl, but in the future, she is going to be even more colorful than the rainbow. Wish me luck! πŸ˜‰ Continue reading My Dolly Week #43: A New Batch of Twins!
