BJD crew changes & updates

Hey guys, it's been quite a while! ...Again. Unfortunately I haven't had much inspiration nor energy for the blog lately, mainly due to all the stress from school stuff :/ But now that I'm almost done with my practical exams and the summer break is just 2 weeks away, I'll hopefully manage to be more active here XD

There are some changes happening in my BJD crew right now, so I thought I could write a post about that.

***

First of all, I decided to sell a few BJDs. Some of these are actually very dear to me, but I just haven't been inspired to do anything with them for years, so I thought that it's finally the time to just let go and find new homes for them ;___; I don't want to have any dolls in my crew just for the sake of them being pretty, I also need to feel inspired by them.

Deri (Soom Sweet Witch) --- Ruri (Soom Clozel) --- Lili (Luts Tiny Delf Gretel elf)


Deri (Soom Sweet Witch) --- Ruri (Soom Clozel) --- Lili (Luts Tiny Delf Gretel elf)


  Marissa (Soom Minette) --- Sindra (Souldoll Junia)

I'm planning to re-shell Marissa as one of Miyadoll's sculpts at some point and I know that I'm gonna miss Deri and Ruri for sure, so I might get them back if I ever find new sculpts for them (Souldoll?). For the others I don't have any "comeback" plans so far. For now they'll just exist as characters in our RP story :3

There's also a new arrival that I haven't posted about on my blog yet. I received Ryx, my Soom ID75 York around 6 weeks ago, but he arrived with a head that didn't match the rest of the doll at all >.< I was so disappointed that I didn't want to post the box opening pictures anywhere. I had to send the head and a hand (for color matching) back to Soom and wait for them to send me another head, which I finally received this week.


I still don't think that the match is 100% perfect, but it's not really noticeable anymore. Now I'm happy with Ryx and hoping to show him with a faceup soon~ ♥ He only has boxers and shoes so far, so I need to make some clothes for him as well XD I could've worked on something while I was waiting for the new head, but the disappointing situation didn't really inspire me to do anything for him... Now that everything's okay, I can finally feel myself getting inspired by this guy!

I got my Frappzilla wig order a little before the replacement head arrived and it was great to see that this wig fits him perfectly! ♥ I had been a bit worried about the fit, since ID guys have quite huge heads XD I loooove this wig~ ♥ I think I'll add some extensions to the back though, just to make it a little bit longer and even better looking.

  1. Heippa hei ja kiva ettÀ löysit aikaa blogille. Olen ollut kurkkailemassa silloin sun tÀllöin. Mutta niin se elÀmÀ on, joskus opiskelu, työ, muut harrastukset ja elÀmÀ ottaa oman ajan. Nyt on kesÀ tulossa, miten ihanaa, ja vapaat pÀivÀt. Toivon mukaan myös ihanat ilmat.

    Ajattelin tĂ€ssĂ€ Sting:in kappaletta….”If you love somebody, if you love someone set them free….” Nukkejen myyminen on vaikeaa, tiedĂ€n sen itse. On ollut ajatus, mutta vielĂ€ ovat luonani. Kerran oli jopa ajatus ettĂ€ kaikki ulos, pieni hetki tyhjyyttĂ€ ja sitten alkaa alusta. Niin kuin ”decluttering”. Toivottavasti löydĂ€t uudet ja kivat kodit nukeille.

    Ja onnea uudelle komealle Ryxille. Harmi ettÀ pÀÀn vÀri oli vÀÀrÀ. Onneksi loppu hyvin, kaikki hyvin!

    HyvÀÀ uutta tulevaa viikkoa!

    1. Blogiin kirjoittaminen on mukavaa puuhaa ja ehdottomasti koitan pitÀÀ tÀtÀ elossa, vaikka kiireisimpinÀ aikoina ei vÀlttÀmÀttÀ kauhean usein ehdikÀÀn postata ^^; Ihania ilmoja kesÀksi tosiaan toivotaan mahdollisimman paljon~

      Nukkejen myyminen osaa kyllÀ olla vÀlillÀ hirmu vaikeaa, mutta sitten kun saa pÀÀtöksen tehtyÀ niin tulee helpottunut olo. Joskus nukke ei inspiroi mutta hahmo on rakas, joskus taas nukke on hirmu ihana mutta hahmoon ei meinaa saada yhteyttÀ. Monimutkaista hahah XD Mutta joo, osalle nÀistÀ onkin jo löytynyt uusi koti/ovat osamaksussa, toivottavasti loputkin löytÀvÀt vielÀ ostajat :3

      Kiitoksia! ♥ Soomilla kyllĂ€ tuntuu sattuvan nĂ€itĂ€ kaikenmaailman mokia vĂ€hĂ€n turhan usein... Mutta onneksi sentÀÀn korjasivat tilanteen ^^;

  2. Damn, Soom really haven't improved their recently terrible QC, eh? Sorry to hear it, but glad you finally managed to get him complete! I love reading about reorganizing doll families! Haha, I am looking forward to some group photos of your dolls after the "purging" lol!

    1. Yeah, it's still quite terrible >.< But at least they fix their mistakes, it's just a shame that the customer needs to point out things like this...

      Oh I should definitely take that group photo at some point! XD No promises though, hahah...

    1. Thank you ^w^ I've always liked York as a sculpt, so couldn't resist getting him when Soom finally re-released him (it's been many years since the original release).

      Yeah, I'll miss Deri and Ruri too :< Maybe one day I'll find new sculpts that work even better for their characters!

    1. Awww hello dear~ ♥ I hope everything is okay! ^w^

      Yeah selling dolls can be quite sad, but sometimes it's just the right decision. Some of the dolls have already found new homes/are on layaway :)

      Thank you~ Sarg has actually finished his faceup and has posted some photos on her Instagram! I'll also post the photos on my blog at some point, I'm just slow and lazy hahah XD

      Yeah, there are times when some dolls just have to go... It can be a difficult decision, but the right thing to do in the end :)
