All Glamour Tyler Wentworth

Classic beauty at its finest, it's All Glamour Tyler Wentworth. She's Tonner Doll's latest basic, and I think she's stunning. I think it's been too long since we've seen a "plain old" basic, and this pair is anything but basic.

The new basic Tonner girls have arrived, and I love both! Their wigs are just a tad thin, but easy to style, and I'm not a fan of their plastic sandals, but both girls are gorgeous.

This is Sydney Chase.

A doll in the hand...

Moonie by alington
Moonie, a photo by alington on Flickr.
... is worth two in the box?

This is a brand new size for Peak's Woods, one of their Monthly Fairy dolls, February's birth month, Moonie. She is only 10 cm tall (that's almost 4 inches). She's dressed in an Amelia Thimble fashion, which is a near perfect fit.

These dolls are articulated now, which is super cool, and very cute. I have several on the older style body, which were only articulated at the neck. But I plan to do head swaps, so I can have different expressions.

She's so cute and tiny. Their face-ups are so amazing. Of course, Peak's Woods quality is obvious even in the tiny size--she can stand on her own, right out of the box, and pose her little arms and hands. They stay right where you put them.

Honestly, I'd love to have all twelve in my collection! So cute.

More photos can be seen on Flickr.

Chloe in Tulabelle

Miss Chloe (Fairyland Chicline BJD) in Beauty White resin is dressed in the fashion from Violet Femme Tulabelle, a brand new line from Integrity Toys. It's a great new contemporary look, I have to say--down to the shoes.

Unfortunately, I couldn't get the shoes on over the adorable tube socks (which are just over the knee and super cute), but the outfit is still really fun without the socks, too. The shoes have a zip on the inside, so they are easy to put on and take off.

The shorts are a perfect fit--which is great. I think it's a great casual option of this size of doll--and you should check out all the terrific fashions available for Tulabelle. She has a fantastic wardrobe!

Evelyn of Treasure Dolls is one dealer who offers splits of these dolls--so if you'd rather not purchase the entire doll and just want the fashion, you can do that in advance. However, once you see Tulabelle, you might change you mind. She's adorable, too.

You can see a few more photos on Flickr.

New Momoko: CCS 13SM Home

There is a new fabulous PetWORKs Momoko coming out in mid June 2013 and she is another honey face.  This great Momoko appears to come in two different options of a gray or white top outfit.  Both outfits will come with a similar shirt in different colors as well as different shoes and pants.  The shirt has a print that reads, "DON'T COUNT YOUR DOLLS."  Fabulous.  I feel like I need a matching shirt to wear as well.

CCS Momoko: 13SM Home
The Momoko has long black hair, light orange natural lips, and white pearl eye shadow.  She will be available for 19,000 yen.

Want some special designs for you Momoko?  I provide lots of dolly attire.  Support an artist!  Visit my website (MegannArt) for an Etsy shop, Twitter, Facebook (with occasional discounts), Pinterest page, and much more.

My morphing collection

My morphing collection by alington
My morphing collection, a photo by alington on Flickr.
It's happened again! Not only have I been shuffling around my fashion dolls, but my BJD collection is going through a change as well.

In addition to adding more realistic sculpts to the line up, I've found that my fascination with Alice-themed and historical/Rococo era outfits have fallen by the wayside in favor of more contemporary styles. These can be a little difficult to find. However, I like several things about them:
  • First, they take up a lot less room to display and store.
  • Second, they are fun to mix and match. It's fun putting together pieces from several fashions and creating a new look. The versatility reminds me of playing with fashion dolls.
  • Third, you have the option of formal wear in additional casual looks, so you aren't stuck with a single style.
Here, Peak's Woods Briana and Lottie are modeling two new outfits from Angell-Studio. Briana is in Modern Forest Suit, and Lottie is wearing Blooming Rose. Briana is in a DollHeart wig, and Lottie is in a Leeke wig and DollHeart shoes. I think the outfits are really cute--well made, and simply adorable.

When a grail isn't all you'd hoped...

Celebration in Paris Tyler Wentworth
Every once in a while, I think I just wait too long to obtain a grail doll. My anticipation builds too much, and then when she arrives, she just can't meet my expectations. This has happened to me recently with the arrival of Celebration in Paris, a Paris Fashion Doll Festival Tyler Wentworth from 2009.

I have to say, she is a lovely Tyler 2.0 sculpt. She's got beautiful platinum blonde hair, styled in short curls. She has amazing red lips and blue eyes. Her black dress is dramatic satin and tulle, with a ribbon belt and a rhinestone buckle. Her jewelry is fantastic, too: two bracelets, a necklace and earrings--all dripping rhinestones. Even her peep-toe shoes are cute and trimmed with sparkles.

I wish she had more dramatic facial screening. I may have waited too long to add her to my collection. She's just not for me. I find she's taking up too much space in my cabinet, and I have to let her go.

I have her listed in on the DollPage Show & Sell for what I paid. I'm hoping someone else will be able to give her a good home and appreciate her, and her limited edition (only 100 were made!), for what she is.

Tonner Two-For Tuesday!

Rufus' Travel Tips

This past fall, my husband, Chris & I flew back to his home state of Maine to attend his high school buddy's wedding. After being inspired by fellow FDR writer Carolyn and her adventures with Collette, I decided I would bring Dynamite Girl Rufus along on our trip. She was pretty quiet and subdued the whole week; in fact, it didn't seem like she was enjoying herself much. However, when we returned home, she had apparently had gathered many opinions about traveling that she felt compelled to share with all of the other dolls out there who read this blog.
