a new dress.

i have showed off my new Noble Dolls Rhubarbe here, but i don’t think i ever revealed her name – which actually took me quite a while to decide on! it wasn’t until i received her new eyes (they were the optional extra purchase with my Pukifee Cony fullset) that her name became clear. she is now Aurelia 🙂 i think it was something to do with the sparkly eyes that made me think of the heavens, which made me think of Aurora, but then that morphed into Aurelia (which has actually been a name i have loved ever since i saw Love Actually – remember Colin Firth’s housekeeper???) i think it’s perfect for her.

my plan with Aurelia is to try and make some of her clothes, considering she is that bit bigger than Pukifees, which hopefully makes it that bit easier. also, because she is a weird size it’s a harder to buy clothes that i like for her, and i don’t have the funds at the moment to commission any.

here is my first attempt! it’s a really simple effort – a wide broderie anglaise trim became the body of the dress, which meant i did not have to hem the top or bottom, and some smaller broderie anglaise trim became the straps. i simply hemmed the back edges of the dress and sewed the straps on. the dress fastens with a clear press stud – simple, and exactly what i was after for now!

a beautiful new addition.

during my period of disappearance, i received a doll that I had been wanting for quite a long time. if i had a grail doll, she was it. she is also the biggest doll i have ever received, and my first mature doll. but, funnily enough, she’s still considered a tiny as she’s only 30cm! here she is –

she is a Noble Dolls Rhubarbe, from Jpop Dolls. she doesn’t have a name as yet, but i absolutely adore her. she has the cutest little (or should i say ‘big’!) booty, and her resin feels so smooth and lovely. when i ordered her, i was quite undecided as to whether to order a faceup or not (i didn’t think much of the faceup in the sales pictures, but most faceup artists are not in Australia, and there’s a risk when sending faceplates overseas, plus you have a faceless doll for a while!) but in the end, i am so glad i did! her faceup is beautiful, delicate and perfect.

now just to think of the perfect name for her!
