Doll people are good people.
I met the lovely Littlebearies through one of favorite places, instagram. In case people do not know she has a wonderful site called The Majokko Shop. If there was anything you needed to know or just simply wanted to keep up on Pure Neemo news I can not recommend her site enough. Loads of wonderful photos, product reviews and even interview with other collectors and artist in the hobby. Her own collection of cutie Neemos is worth the visit alone. You can also check out her lovely photos on her flickr page.
Heather was super helpful when I would
hound ask her various question on size and clothes. She had made an offer to send Yuuta a few items to help build his wardrobe. Feeling ever so grateful, I had sent her one of my prototype neemo sized mohair sweaters as a thank you for all her help and for her girls to try out. Yuuta and Kouta got more than they both expected. Not only did they get new clothes but everything they would ever need to help celebrate the holiday season. A lovely holiday tree and ornaments from Blinkydoll’s Boutique , loads of wrapped goodies and a new pet bunny which the boys are still in the process of naming.
The package also included tiny neemo sized holiday cards made by Heather herself. … Look at those envelopes! So teeny!
These boys are ready to put on some pjs, heat some hot cocoa and enjoy their holiday season.
Thank you again Littlebearies!
Two Yuutas in contrasting sweaters. Actually the little guy on the left is Yuuta’s new friend Kouta.
Kouta is a Magic Boy of Moonlight Yuuta that I picked up at Mandarake. Ebay prices were just insane for this boy but Mandarake sold him for just a hair over his original cost. This was my second time buying from them. Great to deal with and fast. Would purchase from them again in a heart beat.
A long post behind the cut… it’s been a while so bear with me…
I lugged these two hefty boys around DC just to hopefully get a few shots of them in some of the Sakura trees. I would like to say that I would have left one of them home (but I would have been lying) Luckily it’s been a chilly spring so the blossoms were late bloomers. This weeping sakura that my two are sitting in was completely bare last year (and roped off). We were totally luckily this year so I got a really lovely shots. More»
Daisuke has only been to a few meets but every single time he has gone with out shoes on. How rude! Since the DC Sakura Matsuri meet is next weekend I thought it was about time this boy finally got some proper shoes. Sadly I wasn’t too happy with the few doll sized geta I have seen in the shops that carry them so I figured I would try making a pair.
Awesome shop photos taken by the Mr.
(I like how sassy Tsuyoshi looks. Cracks me up)
I finally updated the shop. Lots of tiny short and a few sweaters for the bigger boys. I plan on making another update this month that will include Yo sweater and some sweater for the much larger boys, the Gou body (these will also work for the SD17guys as well). So busy knitting…
I’m not sure if you spotted this yet but Haru is wearing the first YoSD sized fair isle sweater (I say first since I’m on my third one working out additional problems that keep popping up). I’ll go more into this in another post but here is a night shot I took of him wearing it.
Such a cutie<3
And with the stolen good (the teddies) our thief runs off into the sunset (or whatever imaginary sunset Tsuyoshi happens to see… He eventually gets caught).
The Mr took this photo… Which is kind of an old idea rephotographed.
DWC #1 and Daisuke (School A). It’s so hard to see that they are completely different sculpts unless you look really close. I’m hoping to go with the SD10 because I want a younger body for this doll and it’s also the perfect opportunity to finally get that size in my collection. I just hope the head works with the body. I’m excited to get this guy completed.
I was tagged on flickr to post a wishlist for this year. I rarely ever participate in memes of the sort but truth be told I’m rarely tagged. I figured this year I would finally get my Amakusa and items for Head and Z but… Volks posted info on this year Dollfie World cup and posted two heads to be paint and submitted. #1 just happen to scream “Young School A!”. I currently have two School As and a Schultz in my collection so this head was a must. I already have plans for him and I’m excited to put him together. After going against this list so soon in the year I have concluded that most of my doll funds this year will be put into Head and Z. Amakusa may have to wait.
