dnd Bubble

:DDD

I went to the dollndoll website and saw that they planned to discontinue Bubble and some of the other Heart dolls as basics! For this goodbye event, Bubble was listed at 30% off her regular price! The event was only extended until the end of June, but I was still able to order her yesterday with a confirmation from the company! ^__^

I’m so excited that I’m going to have my own Bubble! After looking at more owner pictures, I feel like I’m really going to love her when she arrives! The problem is she’ll be my first Yo-SD, meaning I have no clothes for her X: Well, some Blythe sized clothes fit this line of dolls, so hopefully she’ll have something she can wear ^__^; I actually had planned to get Pukifee Pong for my next doll if I didn’t like Lati’s HK limiteds, but I couldn’t pass up basic Bubble, who has been on my wishlist since the first time I saw her picture!

Hmm.

114/366: Blowing Kisses

After receiving my Nutcracker Lea from Lati the last month, I’ve felt disconnected with my BJDs. I can assure you that this is what spurred my recent re-interest in Blythe. I had owned a CCC before, who I adopted out pretty soon (to my regret now!), but never hit it off with Blythe or the community. Anyways, I can’t exactly give up on Latis now because I’ve met so many awesome people through the community. Lati pictures get the most comments on my stream. I also ordered three dolls – yes, THREE – from Lati’s Le Petit Prince set @___@ I ordered before Lea came with all her imperfections, so I was kind of stuck with my decision. Since people are still waiting for their dolls from the Nutcracker release, I won’t be holding my breath for the LPP dolls to be shipped anytime in the 60 business day period they allow themselves.

I feel like I’m sort of floating around, not really belonging to one doll community anymore. Even though the Latis and Minifees I own are part of the larger BJD community, not that many people have the same overlap that I have with these dolls, so I end up getting the same people commenting only on pictures of mine that feature a specific doll that they themselves own. I mean, it makes sense. Just feel kind of lazy sometimes uploading photos, though! (Not that getting comments is the point of Flickr, of course.)

Doing the Photo A Day for 365 Days challenge for this year is proving to be quite fun. I decided to try this year since it’s a leap year and all. Sometimes I feel forced to take pictures, but other days I get really nice results. I felt that I was taking pictures often enough that it wouldn’t be too much of a challenge, and with the added bonus of owning an iphone with instagram, I can still get pictures on the days that I get home after the sun goes down or when I’m just too busy to be “artistic.”

Bremen Circus

The teaser pictures for Lati’s Bremen Circus release were put up last night. Ruki’s (?) faceup just reminds me of the NC release. I think their faceups aren’t unique nowadays, like they’re focusing on just putting out as many tans as possible. About the tans – I love them, of course. But I feel like all of a sudden, they’re focusing on the tan skin aspect of the releases. People have mentioned that by releasing so many tans, the dolls are getting more affordable. That’s really true – I expected the NC tans to go for higher prices on the market, but it seems like the demand either isn’t there, or the prices just keep falling because the initial list prices were too high. I’m glad that more people are able to afford buying dolls from the secondhand market. Someone had also mentioned that they don’t care that these dolls are “special.” Well, I see them as both personal “toys” and collectors’ items.

I’m also not too thrilled that they’re releasing dolls again so soon. Even though I got my Lea before the 60 days were up, she came to me with some pretty bad flaws. After that, I felt discouraged to buy from Lati again. Then I realized people are STILL waiting for NC dolls to even ship. Plus, they released a green limited line, and now the Bremen dolls are coming out in just over a week. Lati just has so much on their plates right now; when are they going to catch up again?

Enough of that! I can’t wait to see the rest of the dolls. Naturally, Lati releases are the funnest after dolly arrivals. I’m only looking to add a tan Miel to my family. I don’t think they’ll make another so soon after the LRRH limiteds, but we’ll see!

Stuck in the middle?

So I never really got into the Minifee community; could never find others who would actually remember me or my dolls on DoA and would only ever say “oh, she’s pretty” *end conversation*. Well, that’s my fault, though, since I post only sparingly in the thread and it moves sooo fast! Anyways. It’s been a while since I took pictures of my minifee girls, but I still do absolutely love them. Artemia came outside with me today and we got this interesting picture.

Before I got her ready to take outside (had to re-glue one of her eyelashes), the sun had been shining! It was beautiful weather for an outside dolly photoshoot. But as soon as I stepped through the door, a huge, dense cloud blocked the sun x: Then when I finally got sunlight, I realized one of my (really heavy) umbrellas was blocking this pillar .. But it was windy and I was lazy, so I just took the pic lol. Still frustrated about the lighting, but oh well =__= Maybe next time!
