In an effort to continue improvements on the house, we ordered a CatGenie automated cleaner, and bought a new Washer-Dryer set on Monday.

To make room for the CatGenie's arrival, and to make the most use of our tiny laundry room, we spent today stacking the dryer on the washer. It was a massive trial, because the directions basically were non-existant, and the washer isn't quite the right size for the stacking kit, but we got it done. My hands are shredded, and it's 11:20 at night, but it's done. I'll do a test run of laundry in it tomorrow, but now, I'm going to guzzle some water, and flop on the couch before I go to bed.

I'm so happy these little cuties finally came!  It took Amiami some time, but they were worth the wait.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I was so excited to see all three Arclights getting merchandise.  Usually, it's just Quattro, and while I love him, I have wanted a set of all three brothers for so long that I had to get both the keychains and the straps.  And I had to have a Vector, too.

I love the acrylic pinch straps from Cospa! I have so many from different series now, because they're just so darned cute!

Is anyone else planning to turn to Tumblr now that the Flickr situation is turning sour? I'm trying to decide how to post photos in future, since Photobucket likewise kicked the pooch recently with their Pro vs. Free move. Is Imgur the last bastion of image sharing?

Received some Sylvanian Family furniture in my recent AmiAmi order and put the Garden Tea Set straight to use!

I don't know that much about her, just that it was or is a Japanime series.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Cutie Honey is a classic! She's had quite a few incarnations over the years since she was created.

Her stories can get a bit raunchy (the series was aimed at teenage boys; her transformations involve brief nudity, and a lot of her combat involve some flirty, mocking behaviour), but also something of a feminist icon for the era. She was the first female protagonist in her genre, and considered a precursor to the current idea of magical girls, alongside characters like Princess Knight. :3

Her theme song is also catchy as anything.

I've been heavily into the Takara Jenny dolls, and recently found a nice lot on Buyee (Japanese purchasing service) with some Jenny dolls as well as a rare dark skinned Jenny with what resembles dreadlocks, and a Cutie Honey doll.

Yay, Cutie Honey!

Just ordered a new mouse for my computer. The grips on the side of my old one have started peeling off pretty badly, and the left click is out of whack, such that it double-clicks all the time and opens links twice. I've cleaned everything thoroughly, but it's still buggy. So.

Um. Yeah. Time for a new mouse. ._.;

Tachikoma City Day by Lhia, on Flickr

I took Tachikoma to the city with me yesterday and made a little travelogue! More photos of his adventures are on Flickr and my Instagram.

My partner is a beautiful human being. He knew I was hoping to get a MiniFee when the sewing machine carked it, so he told me he'd pay for a body and other pieces, in order to get the current event head. ;__;

I am a spoilt woman, and when he told me he wanted me to order the doll, I was just crushed by sentiment.


Lhia, congrats on getting your MiniFee after all! And on having such a thoughtful and caring partner, makes it all the sweeter. Is this going to become your FAVORITE doll now?!   
<3 :thumb: :sunny: :green:

Thank you!  :hug:

You can bet your bottom dollar she will be. Hahaha

He's been chatting with me about what I plan to do with her/how long it'll take for them to make her/how frequently events come around at Fairyland and so on.

Today's thrift store find: Frightfully Tall Frankie Stein, seen here recreating her favourite scene from King Kong.





Ooooh, nice find.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.
Lhia, great collection! In the instances where you've swapped parts, do you have a written record or just in your head?

Thanks! :D

I keep a spreadsheet of all my dolls, clothes, and accessories, including the custom and WIP ones! :)
Hence my need to inventory. I got a couple of bait lots a while back that I haven't updated in that sheet. They're just in a box and set aside because I got busy, and the weather wasn't MSC-spraying friendly the last few months.

My Tumblr also has a list of which dolls are swapped with which head, including the Novi hybrids. They're tagged in the cases of the dolls that I've taken photos of, too!

[/spoiler]
Ooh, will check your Tumblr then!

Happy Spring to you! Good MSC-spraying weather ahead, lol. We're headed into Autumn/Winter now, after a wildly rainy & hot Spring & Summer.

Additional question for anyone keeping a list and who has multiples - do you have a tagging or labeling system for the dolls? How do you know which is which, unless the multiples are just a single from each line?

Do you mean on the dolls themselves? I only have a few outright duplicates, and they're mostly either reroot or custom baits. Those that aren't, are modified at least partially, and redressed (eg: I have three sig Honey dolls. One is standard stock, one has had her hair styled into a fauxhawk and wears a Lagoona fashion pack 90% of the time, and one is a full custom in progress).

[/quote]
Yes, some kind of tag, ribbon, label on the doll itself....
[/quote]

Yeah, most of the time I don't need to. The face-ups are distinct enough between releases to keep them straight (or I've customised some of them). I know that there was a discussion another member had about keeping their collection separate from their roommate's/friend's because they share display space and have overlapping collections, where they were going to use ribbon or a cute necklace to mark which was whose.

How bizarre! And kind of cool. Are they an okay match with the reboot changes? Or is Clawdeen still darker?

Do you have a link to the Tumblr post you made?


It's actually not the best match. Clawdeen's body is still dark and Cleo's face is lighter compared to it. I haven't unboxed her yet since it's a bit of a rare find.

I posted the link to my Tumblr in another post but have been told only Tumblr members can view it. Another member messaged me and explained a way to make the link viewable to anyone but I have yet to do that. I have so many pictures I want to share! Like Cerise in Cleo's Schools Out outfit is perfection!  :)

Ok, I think this should work:

Also, here is Cerise wearing Cleo's outfit:

The photos aren't too bad, but I imagine in person is different. How utterly bizarre! I wonder how that happened and how many got made that way.

That is incredibly sweet! <3
Congrats! :D

Thank you. <3

He is a wonderful and supportive human being. He also reasoned that the doll + the sewing machine basically came out to my original plan's cost, so it makes me extra fuzzy that he actually knew what I was doing. LOL

It sounds weird, but I figure he tunes out when I go on a doll ramble. He proved me wrong yet again.

He's a keeper!


100% <3 (and for many more reasons than this, but those aren't doll-relevant)

Isn't it amazing what childhood perspective can do? I felt the same way about some of the things I liked at that age, but when I mention them to friends, they blank. I know so many people who didn't know She-Ra, but know He-Man vaguely. Or people who didn't know Lady Lovely Locks at all, when that seemed like a massive phenomenon to me (my friend had all the dolls, I was crazy jealous).

If you do, I want to see it. XD

To be honest, her Sweet 16 updo always makes me think of Elvira when I see it.

I'll bet they're discussing their Halloween costume ideas. ;D

It never occurred to Draculaura that she'd make a great Elvira, but now she's going to give it a shot!
