Have been re-thinking my dollies: their new looks and characters. Here is the first one. Kin [金]. A girl who likes to wear cat ears and has a cat-like personality.
At the animal rescue centre a couple of years ago.
Mikoto’s friend, a volunteer at the animal rescue centre, sought his help to take some photos of the animals who were ready for adoption during the term break. And that was when Mikoto first met Kin who was a young cat then.
The centre has just managed to rescue the barely alive Kin from his owner after they received a tip off that the man has been abusing his cat. They were afraid that they might have to put Kin down as he suffered a hit on his head, some broken bones on his chest and fore limb. But Mikoto succeeded in convincing them to let him care for the kitten.
Since then, Mikoto visited Kin everyday and cared for him. Initially, Kin cowered in fear whenever Mikoto tried to approach him. But after some time, Kin started to accept his presence and finally even allowed Mikoto to hold him. Everyone in the centre was happy to see Kin’s steady recovery and trust in man again.
When Kin was finally out of danger, Mikoto took him home and the triplets adopted him and gave him the name “Kin [金]” because of his pale golden fur. And Kin is happy to find a home where he is loved and safe.

Today is the 4th year Kaoru (Rusi) is with me. Time flies.
When I first saw SWITCH dolls, originally known as So Nyeon Gi (少年記), I was captivated by their dolls and the way they presented them. Then at their 1st Anniversary, they released Rusi. I didn’t manage to get him because he was sold out within seconds of release.
Then in 2011, I bought him together with Hane (Ancy). By the time the heads and their bodies came and finally assembled, it was 10 Aug 2012. These two are my first SWITCHies. Over time, the rest came. Little did I expect the family to grow when I first purchased Kaoru and Hane… (^_ ^;;)
After much consideration, I have decided to retire Hane and put her head up for sale. You can also see the sale thread in Den of Angels. PM me if you are interested.

Do you have occasions when two voices start to talk to you? One urging for the good in you, the other encouraging you to release the nasty you?
In the cartoon/anime, they will usually show the cute little angel and devil talking to the person. Fighting for the person’s full attention.
So, who will get Hane’s attention? The pure white Tsune or the devilish black Shun?

***dollies are in their birthday suits (in case, some people will get offended….)
My first bjd, a Dollfie Dream, came in 2010. Since then, I have received three MSDs, three Blythes, one Momoko, five 1/3 sized bjds. I play with my 1/3, DD and Blythe more often. So I have sent off one of my MSDs and put up the other two for adoptions. Hopefully, they will find their new owners soon.
In these four years, I have learned sewing, accessories making, face-up, photography, made some new friends who share the same passion, learned to blog and get to know interesting and talented people through blogging.
Will there be more? (^_~)
I have a number of photography and sewing projects to carry out; I need to prepare for some events with my new-found friends; I want to continue to learn and improve on my skills; and hopefully get to know more talented people who are passionate about their work from different parts of the world.
I’m also eyeing Volks DDS Ranko Kanzaki. I missed Yaya…so I hope I will be able to get Ranko. Then I’m also planning to go for Hong Kong Dollism and hopefully Switch will have some interesting sculpts….and I also want to have a black hair Blythe…during the last outing, I saw Ruruko and a Unoa Sist/Lusis and I thought both are very cute…
Conclusion, this is an extremely addictive but fruitful hobby…. and I am thankful I get to know so many interesting people and beautiful dolls. (^_^)
Here are the whole gang in their birthday suits. (＾＿－）☆wink
It’s not showing in the photo but Sophia (Limhwa Leda) is the fairest of the lot. Kagura (DD) is getting tan. Haru (latest Switch on Grandao) is the pinkish of all. Sadly Hane is turning tint of green. I may have to retire her soon…. (T_T)
Once a while, I want to be fast in my sewing so I try to skip steps. Sometimes, the results turn out to be below my expectation. ―(T_T)
I was attracted by this brown printed fabric but the man-in-the-house thought the colour too dull. In my impatience to prove otherwise, I went straight to sewing. The result was a very simple but dull dress. ( >_<)
Disappointed, I left the dress in my project basket for some time. Unable to decide what to do with it.
Last month I received a box of sketching pencils from my sister. I was at a lost where to start as I haven’t drawn anything for a long time. ｢(ﾟﾍﾟ) Then I thought why not draw the outfits in my dollybird magazines first. After I have finished them, I proceeded to the outfits I like on the internet and in my manga. When I am sketching the outfit, I am also thinking through how I should sew the outfit.
Soon I have an idea for this dress. With the sketch done, I dismantled the dress and resewed it. Piece by piece. Step by step.
And this is the result. I’m happy with it and the man-in-the-house said it’s much better than before. (^_^) Lesson learnt.
