Bloomy Bloomsbury & FBL mold debut

Friday, February 13th, 2009

This picture taken at a recent event in Thailand reveals the new Bloomy Bloomsbury design by Jane Marple!

I didn’t expect anything less from one of my most favourite brands, that outfit is wonderful. Beautiful details, she must have cost a fortune to manufacture which justifies the price, it is still however far too steep for me.

The other exciting fact about this doll is that she’s the first FBL, the new mold promising to look closer to the old favourite EBL. Jusging from the picture above, they did a rather nice job, but I’d still like to see more.

These are the official photos of the release as well as comparison shots.

Admittedly, SBL, RBL and FBL look pretty much the same in this picture, so I wouldn’t take it too seriously.

Holy night in Daisy D

Friday, February 6th, 2009

Daisy D is my favourite doll artist and that’s one of my most treasured outfits. It’s for Blythe but it fits Momoko beautifully too.

This is Holy night Momoko, that came with the afro hair and Santa outfit. I sorted her out and I love her so much.

Ecole de Simon

Tuesday, February 3rd, 2009

This is a doll school in Harajuku, founded by wonderful artist Simon Yotsuya, who introduced ball jointed dolls to Japan back in the 70s. You may have seen his work in Dolly Dolly and other publications. Every year, the students of his school hav an exhibition of their work, which is always fascinating.

My visit there was thanks to the lovely Nigel who invited me to a little party they had.
