Thank you everyone for the nice comments!  :biggrin: I've just purchased Amanita to add later so I hope to get her soon. She's on my long list of future repaints.

Edit: I've just won one of my grails on Ebay! 1st Wave Nefera will be joining my horde soon too!

 :hearts: I'm really glad you like my collection! It's taken me about 6 months to amass this army and I'm just about finished. Only need to find a cheap River Styxx and 13 Wishes Gigi now to complete it.
So glad you like my BJD's! They are my pride and joy for sure.

6 more girls will hopefully be joining me soon!
1-Sig Cleo
2-Dead Tired Cleo
3-Gloom Beach Cleo
4-Skull Shores Lagoona
5-FCA Viperine
6-BYBY Luna

Ok I've really gotta stop now. I still don't have my Gigi or River tho.  :(

Hello everyone! I've acquired new dolls to add to my ever growing collection since I took those first photos. Once I have all of the ghouls I will post the update.
Sadly I think the deal I had going with an acquaintance is going to fall through which means I'll be missing out on a few rare dolls I had listed earlier. I can't tell you how frustrating it is to have someone tell me they're going to pick up some dolls from a seller in their neighborhood and then ignore my messages over a 2 week period asking about them. No money was exchanged thankfully, but still irritating all the same. :hmm: :argh: :pullhair:
Title: Re: GlowA's MH Horde pics
Post by: Rae on February 21, 2016, 06:12:49 AM
Sorry to hear that deal fell through :( Hopefully another good chance at the dolls will pop up!

Dead Tired Cleo & Gloom Beach Cleo are both hitting the shelves as re-releases now. At least those 2 should be easily gettable...

I normally don't like relying on people to help with certain tasks, but the dolls are a 30min drive away and when you don't own a car and have a toddler to look after that short drive becomes a daunting task. Taking the train and bus aren't an option as they can't get into most tiny streets of the UK so I would also have to consider walking around trying to find 1 house of a million row houses(townhouses). I'd rather attempt to shave a cat than undergo that journey. That's why I was hoping my contact who lives there could do this for me.  :(
Seller understandably didn't want to ship because she preferred pickup (hassle and whatnot), but here's hoping she'll have a change of heart.  :shrug:
Here's a current list of new dolls I will most certainly have in the next photo:
1-Sig Cleo (used)
2-Dead Tired Cleo (used)
3-Gloom Beach Cleo (used)
4-Skull Shores Lagoona (used but mint)
5-FCA Viperine (BNIB)
6-BYBY Luna (BNIB)
7-Amanita Nightshade (used but mint)
8-1st Wave Nefera (used but mint)
9-BYBY Mouscedes (BNIB)
10-Dead Tired Robecca (BNIB)
11-Ghouls Getaway Jane (BNIB)
12-Sig Rochelle (used)
13-FF Bonita (BNIB)
14-13 Wishes Gigi (BNIB)
15-River Styxx (BNIB)

In the meantime please enjoy this pic of my Dollfie Dream bjd enjoying some coffee!  :coffee:

The moment you decide you want one I'm more than happy to help you with any questions you may have. Or even if you just want to chat about it I'm up for that too! The ball-jointed-doll hobby can be very expensive, but I've found ways of keeping the costs to a reasonable level.
I will most definitely post more pictures of my girls in the future. I've got two beautiful resin elf ladies that have been neglected in the photography area, but I'll rectify that soon.

She's sold as Mirai on the Volks website, but I've renamed her Shiori.

Two little Jun Planning Ai dolls (Leptospermum and Aster) and a Hujoo Freya. I haven't made it to resin yet.
That's a pretty name! I think it fits her well. :)

Oh those dolls are SO ADORABLE! The first two remind me of Fairyland's Pukifee/PukiPuki which I would also love to own in the future. I love that cat doll too. So awesome.
I'm going to try posting more pics of my elf ladies, but I've been so busy with finishing a commission, repainting my own MH, and sewing stuff....there's just not enough time in the day.

Well folks the day has arrived to reveal my Dollfie Dream's new faceup. After practicing on Monster High dolls for 6 months I gained the confidence to graduate to BJD heads. Here is the result:

After repainting my Dollfie Dream, I got the courage to redo the faceup on one of my resin BJD elf ladies. I've been promising more pics of them since I started this thread so wait no longer. Here she is....*drum roll*.

Phaedra
This is how she looked before I wiped the previous faceup:

They've shipped her out, so hopefully she'll arrive in the next week or two. Woo!

I'm not good at estimating scale - is Phaedra 1/3 sized? Her sculpt is lovely, and you are amazing at faceups! The purple scheme compliments her skin tone perfectly  ^.^

I can't wait to see pictures of your doll when she arrives! I bet you're super excited.

Yes, Fairyland (and recast) FeePle65's are 1/3 scale standing at about 65cm (25 1/2") high. Thank you so much for the lovely compliments! I'm really glad you like her.

Hehe thank you! Congrats on your own! What's wrong with your faceup?
Chloe is what cemented my love for resin BJD's. She was my gateway drug. Then of course I had to have a gray resin elf, but since Fairyland doesn't produce anything like that I went a different direction.

The great thing about her particular resin tone is she matches nearly everything I put on her and compliments her so well. I love decorating my SD-sized elf ladies so much.

Awww you are so sweet to say that! Really makes my day.  :biggrin:

I will always be more than happy to guide you through bjd faceups if you need the help. I was afraid too, but once you take that first step it becomes far less scary. Feel free to send me a PM if you need assistance or to just chat about dollies.  ;)

Oh I understand what you mean now! Sorry!  :blush:
Well to be fair MH and EAH aren't exactly cheap either for what they are. Compared with bjd's yeah they're prices aren't nearly as eye-watering for sure. I still love them though. They have such beautiful features and the detailing on their outfits and accessories are great for fashion dolls. I can completely understand not wanting to ruin them. It's always very scary to erase factory paint knowing you can't duplicate it if something goes wrong. Totally reasonable fear.
If you ever dip your toe into repainting them please feel free to PM me if you need help.  :)

You bet!  I actually have one doll (Blob CAM) that I have been holding onto as I have had an idea for a custom for a very long time.  She would become Venus' cousin, and her name would be Serra Cenia (formal name for the Jug Plant).  I would purchase a wig for her from Nina Marie, but just have not been brave enough to paint her.  I know I could make her a suiting outfit.  In time I suppose  :)

Oh wow!  I'm normally not a fan of unnatural wig/hair colors, but that somehow looks extremely organic on her.  I love it!

Thank you! Gosh I love weird colors haha, as long as they look nice. I've seen some some stuff that'll turn your hair white it's that hideous. At least I'm glad this combo looks nice on Shiori.

Since I'm taking a well deserved break from repainting this month I finally found the time to dress Shiori in her custom made kimono, made by a bestie of mine, and took some photos with her 1/3 size violin prop. Enjoy!  :biggrin:

Thank you so much! ^_^

I just returned from my trip to Japan and while I was there I visited Danny Choo's store in Tokyo to build my own Smart Doll (because you save money not paying for labor costs). I chose tea-skin Chitose with a medium bust, green eyes, and default wig. I haven't renamed her yet, but I couldn't wait to take pictures of her as she's absolutely adorable.

They have a doll making store? That is so awesome! I'd kill to visit a shop like that.
If you don't mind me asking, how much did she cost to make? I probably won't ever be able to go to Japan, but I'm curious anyway!

She's adorable! I love her eyes.

Danny has a "workshop" area where you can pick and choose which doll you want to put together. He's got 3 sculpts available to choose from and 3 diff skin tones (from what I saw there).  Definitely worth a visit!

A workshop doll comes with a stand, wig, 1 pair of hands, and eyes, but is totally nude. However he does give his customers 10% off everything in the store while you're there. My total cost with tax was roughly 287/$357. So basically it's nearly half the cost of a fullset doll. Only downside is that you have to be physically in the store to take advantage of that heavy discount since he doesn't offer this online. (labor costs)

Thanks for the lovely compliments!  :ohyeah:

Glowa, loving this thread and your dollies! Phaedra's faceup is GORGEOUS! And the fur-lined cape you upcycled from your shirt (drooling!) - love it! What kind of fabric is it, knit or woven?

Your friend's also got some awesome sewing skills!!! Nice to share a hobby with a good friend....

Hehehe me too!! I can't get over how beautiful she is in person. It's the factory faceup which I'll keep for now. Maybe years down the road I'll repaint her.

Awww thank you! I'm glad you appreciate the other side of my hobby interests! The hooded cloak was out of a cloth material that looks woven, but it wasn't. I'm not sure what type of fabric it was to be honest, but it's very smooth and soft.
Oh yes it's great sharing a hobby with a bestie for sure!

So ethereal and magical looking.  I hope you are keeping them and not selling those because they really are something.  BJDs are just totally out of my price range, if they weren't  I would be in so much trouble ..... especially because I would be needing to commission you to make them Elves  XD

I have a "slight" (*cough* massive) addiction to elves so of course I had to have Arcayna. The only reason I would sell this one is if I was to buy a new one from Denver Doll Emporium and that isn't happening in the near future that's for sure.
Sadly you have to drop mad cash on bjd's depending on the company, however there are cheaper options for elves and mythical creatures. Resinsoul makes cheap-ish bjd's in whatever color you wish for example.
