I’ve changed up my Iplehouse Tania’s look since she was last featured here and OH MY GOSH SHE’S SO PRETTY.
If I can’t have cats or fish in Dunedin then I shall collect house plants, and Mum bought me this cyclamen when we visited a farmer’s market in Oamaru. It’s held in this old Victorian warehouse and the people were so cheerful – one woman couldn’t stop raving to us about the perfection of these chocolate eclairs and how she comes every week to buy one.
After a doctor’s appointment on Monday, I’m at home now and starting to wean myself off my meds (they’ve been making me too blah for liiiifeee!). Hanging out here while I study for exams… of which I have one, hee. I’m very very excited – both for semester holidays and not having to worry about little white pills anymore.
…But back on topic
It’s hard to find quality clothes in the style I like, let alone clothes without exorbitant shipping prices. JIDs in particular are tricky because with their wide shoulders and hips they’re quite “chunky” (read: more realistically proportioned) compared to other BJDs. So who knew Plume Blanche, which is aimed at slim MSDs, would also fit JIDs!? I will have to find something else for that incoming Minifee lololol poverty forever.
Since getting her head back from Andreja, I’ve been intent on getting her new eyes – the bright blue ones shouted over her faceup’s pinky lavendery tones. Months of waiting later, my order for Enchanted Doll eyes has finally arrived! I do wonder what my housemates think of me, seeing as I get so many parcels with customs forms marked “doll goods”. OH HOOO I’M SO COOL. I ordered two pairs – 12mm Milky #42 and 10mm ED #33. The 12mm ones are breathtaking, like shimmery mint, but alas! they don’t work for her. I keep prising the box open anyway and admiring them and ACK I’m so annoyed I have nothing to use them for. Can I pluck out my own eyes and replace them with these please.
As for the new eyes, they were meant for a JID Asa I was once going to buy (and may still buy one day in the very distant future – just in a different resin colour than originally planned, wahahaha). Disappointingly dull and piddly little things, I didn’t expect them to suit her so well. Even though these eyes are a smaller size, I keep thinking, OH MY GOD HER EYES ARE HUGE.
Her new eyes were also a convenient excuse to experiment with a few wigs in my possession! I’ve collected pink wigs in the hopes of one day being able to live vicariously through a doll with pink hair. Her face is so heartshaped now, and ditching the fringe has her look older too. It’s crazy how changing eyes and hair can change a doll’s appearance so dramatically, although honestly, this is all just a wordy way of saying LAFKSJFDSALKJ PINK HAIR!!! ♥ ♥
