The outside photos are so pretty!
I really like how you style your MIOs, you have great sense for fashion!

Thank you! That means a lot to me to have you say that! :) <3


OMG IT'S A GIANT ALIEN CREATURE!!  (lol, Finny)

Excellent work and pics! Love the wig and outfit styling! And I really like how you did the lips...pretty and feminine and like she's been getting into the berry patch. And the 1970s turquoise blue eyeshadow! Yes!

Thank you! And yeah I thought the eyeshadow would be a nice bright surprise. ^.^

You pulled off the bolder make-up fantastically! Will you post some pics showing more of her eyebrows?
Thank you!

As far as the brows go, I'm honestly not at all happy with them, so I'm glad the wig I chose has bangs. In fact I haven't been happy with any of the brows I've done so far. I even tried pastel first and then watercolor pencils this time, and they still look blech.  :( I like the shape and expression of these, but they're just too bushy and fake looking for me. :huh:

And I'm sorry for the awful lighting, it's nearly 10pm here. :eesh:

We don't travel much, but have plans to start doing so sometime in 2018, because we've nearly paid off all of our debt now.... and I really want to take a Pullip with me on trips for pictures and such. If I do, I'm going to get one of those special carrying cases for them. I see a maker of one on Instagram all the time, so I'll probably buy one of those, as long as they're not too outrageously priced. lol

Right now, I do take them out for pictures in the front yard all the time.

Aw, I love Tessa and Finny together! :biggrin:

Haha. He was loving that I was taking photos outside, and snuggling against my legs, so I had to get some shots of him with her. :)

I love the dress, photos (especially the - is it forsythia? - one) and Finny!

Thank you! <3

She is so cute!  It's amazing how they become "ours" through customization.

I know! I actually think I might like my MIO girls a bit more than my stock girls, because *I* made them, you know? It's pretty cool. I never thought I would get so into customizing.

Speaking of customizing, I finished a new girl today, so of course I had to take a ton of pictures of her. :lol:  ^^;

Everyone, meet Tessa <3 :

Thanks guys! I actually ended up going darker and bolder with the lips. I did a full faceup on her last night, and then re-tweeked the eyelashes and blush today in the daylight. Artificial vs. natural lighting really does make a difference when working on these girls, I've found. lol.

Anyways, here she is. I'm pretty happy with her. <3 I've definitely found that the mocha kits are much more forgiving and easier to work on than the natural kits. lol. Still, I think my skills are continuously improving, and I'm at least glad all of my dolls don't look exactly the same, as I was initially worried about that when making my own. ^^;

I'm working on my 5th MIO. She's my last natural Pullip kit, and I had done a faceup on her the same time I did Chanelle's, but I hated how it came out, and decided to wipe it. It's too humid to spray today, but seeing the remnants of her lip blushing in the cracks I couldn't reach with the sandpaper was driving me nuts, so I decided to work on her lips for now, and just put it somewhere safe until I can seal it.

I'm going for a nice full lip, with more definition than my previous faceups. I think they came out nice. I might add some creases in her lower lip with watercolor pencils after I seal it. We'll see.

What do you guys think? (I could use some encouragement  ^^; )

I know it's a bit different than the other things mentioned in this thread, but the original did come out in 1997... I'm eagerly awaiting the Final Fantasy VII Remake. I love everything I've seen of it so far, and I cannot wait to play the first game in it. Hopefully it won't be too much longer.
I think the Final Fantasy VII remake was the beginning of the hype train for me, lol.  My sister is afraid it's not going to work, but Square puts a lot of heart into anything Final Fantasy VII, especially when it comes to pleasing fans.  I need to get a PS4 before it comes out, but the Switch has my attention right now.

I think people expecting it to be just like the original will be disappointed by it, but from everything we've seen and learned about it, (which at this point honestly isn't too much) I really think I'm going to enjoy it. I mean I still get goosebumps watching the E3 2015 reveal trailer, to this day. :lol:

It will be, in the very least, something to drool over graphically. XD

I ordered the PS4 camera 2.0 and a little mount clip from ebay, so I can use it with my tripod.

Ordered two more outfits from itsMYcaprice. The second one includes the hat and stockings, as well as the dress.

I was telling my husband last night that if they ever made Final Fantasy Pullip dolls, I would buy all of them. Not just one of each, but ALL of them. Like oodles and oodles of duplicates.  :haha: XD

It would be like the marriage of two of my most favorite things in the world. :lol:

Yeah....my Lemongrass is currently going comando under that dress I made her. I really need to make that girl some panties. :|

Bought some fabric for more Pullip doll clothes and some yarn to knit a doll hat. Lemongrass is about to be soiled.


Ooooh! Be sure to share your creations in the Pullip thread! I'd love to see them.

That's exactly how I was feeling about it Melissa. It sucks when you have a doll completely done up with a nice outfit, faceup, hair, etc, and then she has bare feet. It feels unfinished, and it drives me nuts!

I also need to buy some Pullip underwear, because Angie from Omocha Crush's mother has instilled it in my head that my dolls need panties, too. :lol:

I wish I knew how to sew.  :cry:

I ordered two dresses from itsMYcaprice, 4 pairs of stockings from thedaughterwhosews, 2 pairs of boots and 2 pairs of shoes from HelloCoolCat, and a pair of shoes from SKDollhouse.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Cute dresses! Do you have pics of the shoes/boots to share?

I can link you! Shoes are my least favorite things to buy for my Pullips, because I have a hard time finding styles that I like, and they're just so expensive for the tiny little things that they are... but I was sick of looking at all of my MIO girls with bare feet, so...

I got these in pink and sky blue:

These in deep brown:

These in black:
