Bootsale 12.03

Oh my, that was a good one.
Few unexpected /aka unwanted but embraced finds...
This autumnal effort to bike for miles between two different carboots on coffee and poor breakfast... missing sleeping in... totally worth it doll wise;-)

Over six months later most of the dolls need work to be done on them..oh just too much of a good stuff;-)

umbrella and lunchbox with Charlie and Lola, vintage crystal club style ashtray, brown and ivory vintahe laces for sawing, beaded purple coasters (all so cheap that i had no excuse not to take them, whatsoever...)..as well as tweed tie and Shetland wool sweater...

close-ups time...
 These two Monsters and missing arms but have their original dresses and heads for repait play...
 got them for 2 pounds in set with all those wasted and trashed fairies...
Very disnayesque, and annoyingly tiny but underneath these glittery leaves these doll present rather charming tiny faces (and bendable legs!).
Burger king AA cabbage patch figurine is still fo rsale.

These two are so precious...
Sindy in scary woollies is from table top - probably old toy kept at home for grand children visits or something... 50 p - so innocent and pure...

her dark and slightly spooky friend is my first Ever After doll (yay/ oh dear) - her peacock and metallic colours took my heart by storm (she was missing one sho but I resold it as spare/odd so doll is for free + few pennies;-)

So what do we really have here...

 Fairies are from a nice contemporary gift set, still available and not so cheap...
faces are amazing...wings fortunately missing so it leaves me a lot of space for imagination... I already used them in my autumn harvest session last year:



Monster Highs are 13 Wishes Clawdeen:



a version with lots of glitter but interesting dark blonde hair...


while Rochelle is very tired party goer from Ghouls night out line (sold in set and separately)...with head full of glue and greasy hair:-( she is new sweet face edition but cotton candy hair are the winner!





Ever After doll is an exciting purple-haired discovery: Raven Queen from Dragon Games line.
Well how cool is that!?






so much potential in this one...


just look at her repaoints!


 The last one is by szlanooka (here is her gallery)

oh dear <3

Wuthering flats

..this is a story of one failure...

Georgeous Fashion Fever Teresa of mine is super unlucky... I made her lovely plum lace top, rusty cardigan and even took her for weekend to London once...but was so busy and overwhelmed that she  had zero pictures taken...

Then there is my adorable, sde-glimpse, rooted-eyelashes Lea on Liv body (what more can one want!)...wearing fab handmade felt body cut jacket, colour and seasonal appropriate styling...and nothing was happening...

So i took both of them to the seaside...
It turned out to be sooo windy and sooo rainy...both dolls and camera got way too messy...
Light was very poor, strong wind made it impossible to hold dolls high and get focused pics..oh dear...


...managed to make only these few I am presenting underneath...


 Sandstorm fashion on Norfolk dunes...



Do you think we look like bunch of dolls out of focus?
The true is the roadtrip itself was lots of family fun. Kite flying in the rain basically - totally my style:-) here are few backstage pics;-)..like this one of cold cold daddy with a broken kite..
It was his first time flying a kite ever...so he got himself a new one for his birthday...




story with a happy ending sort of:-)

p.s. jacket study...

My Dolls, nr 136

...and then when I really wanted to stop I saw one fun  contemporary doll I wanted in a very cheap bundle (aka lots of plastic crap to handle...)

I accidentally started to watch this Barbie movie with my daughter but she is way too young and bit bored but I got intrigued (as an everlasting rock chick). For the first time 'doll-from-the-movie' made sense to me. She is a bass player from Rockn'Roll Royals named ZIA- blue haired and very fair Raquel with red lips!





I this she seems to have lots of potential once stripped off her playliness....and stiff body...

Here she is 'on arrival':

 oh dear...
 so much crap this time
 took me sometime but managed to resale luckily...
...she arrived with obe pushy friend... 
I dismantled her heartlessly and sold dress and head separately...
 despite of rooted eyelashes and being a part of (terrible terrible Mttel era) 
glittery line of Barbie Style 'In Spotlight'


Back to ZIA..

She arrived in playline aka slutty mini dress with some mean boob-job sponsored by Ariel I guess...


she has terriblt not-rock'n'roll stiff and one very fair body...in interesting contrapposto and not at all terrible hand position
 Her eye design is very interesting with lovely 'denim-like' for me combination of blues and browns...
 I feel very tempted to work on her hair...
tone down the white contrasts and maybe, somehow add other shade of blue or black to break the electric blue...

All those months later I finally had time for her.
Her hands are huge and I am seriously tempted to rebody her. Something tells me her fairness might be problematic...
I just gave her a quick/temporary make-over so far...and accidentally she became 'little me' with a blue bob and strong lipstick I really shouldn't be surprised;-)

 ...slouchy hat, messengers bag, tweed jacket, oversized denim, ironically pink and glittered top 
and heavy boots... yeah definitely one roroDoll!
