Teresa di Flores & T.Fleur...

Spring in heart, spring in the air...
On 28.03.17 I decided that the weather is to nice not to have a doll photo shoot... and since my queue is long and growing I invited 2 Teresas into my garden.

Lovely fiery ginger Queen of Flower Fairies doll - wearing contemporary, floral Fashionista dress and Liv skirt combined. Beyond Pink (Orangey) Teresa god rebodied an dis rocking mtm leggings and Very Velvet Teres'as bolero:-)

I just love the play of differences and similarities on/of these two:-)

Teresa di Flores checking out my Spring garden:






then she headed indoors to look for other florals...



Why be so modest if you can become a flower beauty icon...

and in Technicolor..

<3

I could finish here but T. Fleur waves with her one articulated wrist...
Here they are together..



..then she went solo... (i have found this tres chic piece of pink aluminium on pavement;-)
 ok ok she really needs things to be done to her fringe..what a lame rooting...

Here is her overexoosed floral bit:



Thank you

Loving you Lea & Heart Family

For once I have a post time and season appropriate...
who cares it is only year old photo shoot...

I still LOVE it and it turned out exactly how I pictured it in my head...

There is no huge variety and choice so I decided to post both themes together.

1. Loving You Lea

This is 'Make-up Chic Lea' on Liv body, wearing Loving You 1983 gown and surrounded with colour coordinated doll shoes... She sure loves fashion and herself:-)


 oh dear...

'You repulse me the least' anatomical human heart from felt was created by Norwich's local: by https://www.etsy.com/uk/shop/Floozey


<3 <3 <3



..and on a lighter note...

2. Heart Family couple:

My second idea was simple - reunite dolls purchased on very separate occasions and create a warm, mature couple portraits:-) They are so charming and happy together:-)






..and all the best to all of you gals and guys!! Let the love rule!

Bootsale 26.03.17 (No 137 & 138)

Sunday like any other...
I heroically got up after 7... got on my bike after 8 (oh glorious sunny Spring days!) and explored vast spaces of my carboot meadow...

As usually spent way too much time with huse clearance boxes but managed to dig our lovely red liquor gasses, festive dish, collection of vintage laces and trims for dollies and rather stylish and crafty beaded bag - all worth 100 more than what I have payed for it obviously...

Amonst the stuff aka shit I managed to dig out slightly tired Build a Monster dolls with leftovers of clothes and from the bottom of the nasty box of mixed lot - vintage Barbie clone, still with foil protecting her hair on and tiny wee dark skinned lady... and run out of money but managed to negotiate as usually...


very delicate face and funny texture of rubber - as if she was 3d printed...

 Just look at her amazingly cute face and rooted!!! eyelashes:-)
 ...just as i suspected and was very hopeful for - 
she is one of Politoy's Pippa doll friends called Mandy.
 as I imagine due to her skin tone rather rare.... 
but now i will need to buy her a caucasian friend and make/buy set of clothes, right???

Accordimg to Wiki "Pippa was a "pocket-sized" fashion doll offered by British toymaker Palitoy between 1972 and 1980. She was a 6.5 inch fashion doll with numerous friends, fashions, an apartment, a car, even her own hair salon."
Here is fab oldish page having it all...http://www.pippadoll.net/

Here few eye candies from internet...

Mandy in her original outfit 

 Jasmine, Gail  Penny...

...and then when I run out of money, on way back to my bike I saw her!
With her lovely hair colour, amazing lipstick and stunning face. Her random clothes were unusually decent/ interesting too... Unfortunately that seller was a regular trader. Her prices are not much car-boot like and she got crossed when I showed her my coins...
I usually left my partner sleeping and children in front of tv on those days... ho obviously was not picking up his phone... this bootsale is in the middle of nowhere but from now on I decided to wear a wallet with card on my just in case...
I had to pedal back home as fast as i could. Make him a coffee, steal all his coins...and force him and two children to give me ride back there... They obviously know me very well and saw I am not kidding and there is no point in protesting...
I run with a lot of dignity, lady was till there (post 10 o'clock i bet) and doll as well - just misplaced...oh!


After curvy denim doll - she is my only Goddes face doll and this one is a redhead!
I love her honey eyes and pink eyeshadow is artsy and fun here...glitter will have to go however...

[[[you can have a sneaky peak of what happen later on my instagram account! roroDolls]]]

Her hair are dry and tangled and she still has a thread in her head...
broken neck and dirty legs won't be a problem as this gorgeous face needs a better body anyway...

 

I managed to identify her clothes as belonging to to MyScene Barbie 'Jammin in Jamaica' ( and I once owned that bag....)

Doll's hair are at least two-toned and she looks so interesting I completely couldn't wrap my mind around her...but glitter will tell you the truth...



she turned out to be one of the Twelve Dancing Princesses and her name is Edeline 2006...


I bet I have the more tanned version. She also seems to have a playset edition...
I rather like her peachy/salmon layered dress and pointes necklace...


oh wait - actually my doll has swapped body or she is one of these 3 with straight arms, not articulated solo dolls - see (and thread i her head is yellow suggesting her tiara was originally gold not peachy at all....):


here she is in a Barbie movie (not sure if i can handle this one, way too many princesses - dancing and probably singing too...)

and her belongings according to fanpop.com

Here she is after soaking, brushing... glitter AND eyebrows removal (sorry!)
...need to thing if she needs to be pretty redhead or this shaved eyebrowns look can take me somewhere in alternative eaesthetics...

this glitter will survive attomic bomb I swear....
In the end I went for a Firery Fairy on spare Fashinista Swappin' Styles body

Here she is, Edi I guess, in casual autumn/winter fashions I love the most:-)
eyebrows are mess and lack depth...concealing glitter with more pink did not really work.. 
need to think a bit harder;-)
 <3
 my other favorite, hand-made jacket and petrol blue real raw silk skirt...
 here a sneaky peek from her session with (oh so articulated and flexible) cousin Jasmina!
