Ivy, my first Makie

Post by Jupeycat on Sat Feb 07, 2015 2:46 pm

I got five very different dolls for Christmas and Ivy was my favourite.  She's been following me around the house since then and keeps demanding more clothes.  She has four pairs of shoes ordered which I'm hoping she will share with the new girl when she arrives.  I've also ordered her some glass eyes from Captured In Glass.

They can be very demanding in the clothing department can't they?   I have found that with Wren!   I absolutely love Ivy's dress.  Did you make it?

It's a Blythe dress I bought for my Dal a couple of years ago.  It's made by Feltland on Etsy.  It's a little bit tight but I think it looks cute on her.

Your little Wren is a very lucky girl!

She's absolutely, heart meltingly,  precious, Jupeycat!  I love you

I've always had a real soft spot for dolls and stuffed animals with solemn, sad little faces. ^_^

I fall for dolls and stuffies that look scared too.
I have a black Teddy Bear, who looks like he's utterly terrified of everything.  When I saw him, I simply had to buy him, even though he wasn't jointed.  I just couldn't stand to leave him there all alone and scared to death!  Smile

Ivy's so pretty and brooding! The sad mouths really give a pouty, petulant look and I love it! 

I also really love that dress on her, it suits her perfectly!

Thank you everyone!

JRyu, I have always liked sad toys too.  When I was a little girl, my mum used to tell me sad stories about a toy being the last one left in the shop and that it needed to come home with me to be looked after.  I also used to bandage my toys up lol.  The one I remember most is getting my My Child for Christmas.  She was blonde and really was the last one left.  Mum got her in the sale otherwise she would've got me a brunette.  She told me she was lonely!  She is happily sitting in my doll cabinet next to my brunette My Child that I got a few years ago as an adult.

I think this is why I've ended up with a five animals.  One of them has only three legs and is very shy.  I fostered her and couldn't give her up!

I did that too, only it was usually my little dog figures.

Back then I think a lot of the little plastic dogs were made more as something a bit sturdier than China, for children to collect and display.

At least, the more realistically colored ones, because their plastic was more brittle, and it was easier for legs and tails to get snapped off.

Lol, I love dogs, so I was always playing with mine, even my little China dogs. ^_~

Whenever one lost a leg or a tail, and I couldn't find the piece, I would feel really bad.

I loved all my little toy dogs so much that I couldn't bear to throw the broken ones away.

So I would use toilet paper and glue mixed with water and wrap their broken stumps with it to look all bandaged up.

Then I would pretend that they were army service dogs that had been wounded in the war.

If my partner didn't put her foot down, I'd probably take in every hurt, homeless, and stray animal I saw or even heard about!

....and that would be on top of the ten or so poodles I would already have! Very Happy

I used toilet paper to bandage my toys!!  I had a flocked seal toy that started to go bald so it got wrapped up the toilet paper because it was "injured".  I can't wait to tell my mum that someone else did this as well!

Aisha has just arrived home so I've quickly snapped a couple of pics before she gets put away until March.





I think they will be both getting smaller eyes.  I'm still waiting for Ivy's to be posted.

Aisha is lovely, Jupeycat, I don't know how you can stand to wait until March to have her back out and be able to play with her. Smile

Lol, I'd be going crazy! bounce Wink

Btw: I took a peek at the pictures in your gallery, you have some beautiful dolls and Teddies. ^_^

I especially love the little BJD Fennic fox, he is so cute!
Could you tell me which company he is from? I'd love to know!

I'm very pleased with the new girl and it's interesting seeing the difference in their faces.  I'm used to waiting 6 months for bjds so a month doesn't seem that long to me!  I'm also getting my first Pullip (I have a Dal) and I'm excited to see her too.

The little fox is from here: Aileen Doll Penny

It's saying sold out at the moment but I'm pretty sure they will start making them again at some point so keep an eye on them if you want one.  I LOVE the dragons and cats too.  Oh for a money tree.
