From the City to the Jungle

*** Doll Nudity, Please view at your own discertion ***

I was organizing some dolly pictures and I have came across these pictures of Livewire which I quite like.  So … I make up a story like that:

IMG_6749Livewire is a city lady who has everything – education, career, love, wealth, beauty…you name it, she has it.  Things come too easy for her.  So, once in while she would put everything down, leave the city and then go back to the primitive area and be herself!  Oh well….being simple and close to the nature, so she claims….But actually what wants is even more – to be the … Queen …. of the Jungle!  Does this kind of approach sound familiar to any of you?

May 5th–Happy Birthday to ~~ Me!

 

Haha…it is kind of embrassing to say happy birthday to myself. But I have decided to post it here because besides receiving many messages through Facebook and SMS, I have got a nice surpise from my dear friend, Cholo (Choloisms in Flickr), who is such a tallented artist in Philippines and has made me the below picture for my birthday!  You made my day, Cholo!  Thank you so much!!!

Sybarite Jewellery–Acquired Wealth

Sybarite on chain 2011 MayToday is still a holiday to me, so I just surfed aimlessly online after a rich breakfast. And I have found a very nice main picture of Sybarite on Superfrock’s website. I think it is the best of all Sybarite since V3, Play, Playeur and Toxica.  I like that picture and the metal look accessories, so I clicked inside and found the below pictures and items of their “Acquired Wealth” series.

Poppy Parker–I Love How You Love Me Set Arrived

IMG_6697 拷貝

Poppy Parker’s I Love How You Love Me set (Dolls Magazine’s Exclusive W Club Doll) arrived. This is the very first full exclusive gift set that I have as I usually go for nude dolls in the secondary market. This set has a cute pink box with a big pink ribbon on the side to tie it up. The doll has very nice slightly tan skin tone with light shinny blonde hair. I love her hairstyle, which reminds me of Sissy of The Family Affairs of the 60s.

But too bad that the hair is very thin, there is no hair on the back of her skull which is just covered by the top ponytail. It is very disappointing! As in most cases, people like to take down her hair and restyle it! This Poppy would not have enough hair to do so. Actually, the cost for that little patch of hair is very cheap indeed. It would not help to save much cost to the manufacturer but to leave a bad impression to customers instead.

This Poppy set came with 3 sets of outfits and matching shoes and slippers. So with just one set, your Poppy could dress for 3 occasions.

(1) Party: This is the set I like the best – A one-piece silky look white dress with embroidery in the front. The collar is smooth and elegant. It has a ¾ sleeves length white overcoat with pattern to go with. A pair of short white stretchable glove, stocking, a cheap looking purse and a head ribbon, also a pair of slightly high heels matching shoes.

(2) School Day: A red one piece dress with white top, flat red shoes and a very nice stocking with pattern. I wish they would include some textbooks as diorama.

(3) Night time at home: A pajama with a slipper. This is something basic 60s looks. It looks very cheap in quality but the scale of the checker is just perfect for 1/6 dolls.
