Apologies for my lack of posts and responses – I have recently moved into a new job, and have moved interstate, so all of my time has been taken up with issues revolving around the move. I hope to be back posting again soon!

i had long been admiring Aileen Doll’s dragons, but was reluctant to spend any more money at the time. however, they then released Lapis, a beautiful blue LIMITED EDITION dragon (why all the limiteds??? i swear these companies are trying to bankrupt me 🙂 )
i was hooked.
Lapis was released with an optional jewel horn, or a unicorn horn. i didn’t want either, so Aileen Doll very kindly complied with my request, and so one of the cutest dragons ever was born.
meet Zephyr –
he has the cutest worried expression and a fat little tummy 🙂
Zephyr’s blushing is absolutely divine – he is a stunning blue, plus he has lovely green and purple accents. he is actually a white resin with full body blushing – and for that reason i am very careful with him and also very protective of him at meets (though the lovely group i meet with are aware of that and treat him with the utmost care 🙂 ) he came really well wrapped – each individual limb and wing was wrapped in bubble wrap to ensure that they did not rub against each other or his torso. i would highly recommend Aileen Doll. i think that they do a fantastic job with these creatures. please note that they are not supplied with eyes – you will have to purchase them yourself (which i kind of like, as it means that each dragon then has something slightly different about them).
if you do purchase an Aileen Doll dragon, though, please beware – they are super addictive!
soooo, Fairyland announced their new event… there were two new Pukifees released – and I have already ordered a fullset Cony!

i love her sweet little face, and beautiful pastel outfit. i have also upgraded to the premium eyes shown in the photographs. although i love the style of wig, i don’t like the two tone colour, so i may sell it later on. additionally, i am not a huge fan of the stockings and shoes, so i may not use them either…
with my order i qualified for the Pukifee event faceplate –

which i don’t love. at all.
it reminds me of one of the recent Littlefee Baby faceplates and just does not appeal to me. however, i may keep it and try to mod it slightly (it is calling out for the eye shape to change at least!) and it will at least give me something to practice mods and faceups on. plus, who knows? it may just be a lot cuter in real life.
is anyone else ordering from this event?
last Saturday i went to my last local doll meet before i move interstate 😦 Although there were only a handful of people, we had quite a few dolls between us!

once upon a time, i was browsing flickr when I spied the cutest little creature i had ever seen – a tiny bjd dog. this cutie had the sweetest expression, and was a perfect size companion for pukifees. there were no tags on the photo to identify where this cute creature had come from, but after much hunting i discovered that they were the creation of DaisyDayes – an amazing bjd sculptor. i was familiar with DaisyDayes’ work, as my little Puck has a pair of her hooved legs designed for PukiPukis, and i had also seen her adorable little dolls for sale on JPop Dolls. this cute little dog didn’t appear to be sold by JPop, and i suspected it was sold directly by the artist. after requesting permission to view the artist’s photos on flickr, this was confirmed. then came the wait. the wait for more darling little hounds to be made.
a batch was released – in the middle of the night Australian time. i missed out 😦
then the preview of another batch was shown – only four puppies. when that preview came out, i set my alarm to go off every two hours the following night – they weren’t listed for sale.
days later the individual photos of the four puppies were shown – but still not listed for sale. in those individual photos one pup in particular caught my eye, but the chances of getting him were slim – only four puppies, and timezones working against me…
the following day i checked my flickr every 15 minutes religiously, and that night i once again set my alarm to go off every two hours (if i didn’t have to work the next day, i probably would have tried to stay awake all night 🙂 ). luckily for me, when the first alarm went off, i saw that the pups were listed for sale – 40 minutes prior. i was certain i had missed out, but lo and behold, when i went to check – three of the dogs had sold, and one was left. amazingly, the one that was left was the one i had wanted, so i shot off a quick email. i quickly heard back that he was already on hold, but if it fell through DaisyDayes would let me know. i checked my emails the next time my alarm went off… and found out he was mine! yay, yay, yay!
here he is –
i hope to take some more photos of him soon, showing off more of his adorableness (that’s a word, right? 🙂 )
i feel so lucky to have been able to buy one of DaisyDayes adorable hounds after wanting one for many months.
Daisy Dayes named him Mousse (as in chocolate, i presume), but i’m really considering renaming him Barkley – because i think that’s the most awesome dog name ever. followed closely by Digby – which i am reserving in case i ever get another of these fabulous puppies!
isn’t he the cutest thing you’ve seen???
