Secret Project: Tiny Dragons!

Well, yes. I did a thing. Actually, back in October 2017, Fantasywoods told me about the little PlaPico dragons from AileenDoll, and my first reaction was wanting to grab my wallet and throw it at the screen!

For those of you who do not know, these PlaPico dragons are the same versions of the tiny 8cm dragons, but they are built from plastic, as model kits! Like those models kits of Gundams, planes, ships, and so on. And their price is amazing: USD12 each! When I saw them, hubby became a little Picidae bird (those that continuously hammer the tree) and offered me once and again to gift me the dragons. He is an enabler, I love him. I ended up accepting, but I decided to wait until AileenDoll released Ashes.

So here is what I got! Ashes and Violet (in violet plastic). Here are some photos of the dragons, and after the cut, there is the list of all my plans!

2018: Doll Goals

New year is here!!! I'm hoping you had a wonderful start!! Last week, on January 3rd, it was Venezia's first year: I'm still stunned that I have had her for so long. However, the next chapter for her story should be up on February, as I have a lot of (tiny-centered) stuff planned for January!

Anyways, let's start with the goals! I will check them back at the end of this year, as I always do, and see how much I have achieved and failed as well. Have a Merry in the meantime... will she miss or hit? The goals are after the cut xD

New Year Party ~ Story Time

I can't believe 2017 is almost gone!! It went out so fast, that it is unbelievable. But oh well, there is still time for a new post. I want to share a last chapter (for this year) of Coco and Venezia's story. This time, they are going to a New Year party! This is just my poor excuse to just fit period dresses on their story because you know me: I have a weakness for period dresses and huby gave me a book for pattern-making!

So I thought... why not share the process, as well? I was originally going to post everything here but I... eh... ended up with more than 200 photos (twice), so I decided to go ahead and make a separate blogspost with a video of the process, all my rambles, and so many photos xD You can read it here:

Oh well, hope you'll enjoy! And special thanks to Daggry Sagga and KarlaChan for beta reading this for me. I was a little insecure about some of the topics addressed.

Regency Inspired Dresses ~ A Journey

I have had a particular idea for a Regency dress for Coco for so long, honestly! On 2016 hubby got me the expensive lace, and this year I was finally able to make it. But, I wanted this dress -and one for Venezia- to fit on their story... so costume party it is! The story about that is in another post, so I can focus here on sewing and related rambles.

Read the store here:

So, this is a long post as you'll have some photos of the dresses, me being defeated by xmas lights (yet again), photos anecdotes and above all, a video! I decided to make a video about the process, steps and inspiration of the dresses. The one for Venezia is... sort of a novelty -a crossover between a menswear and the final outfit of the movie "Pride & Prejudice & Zombies", which I loved. And to be honest, V is having so many Mr. Darcy vibes!!

First Snow!!

Yeah you know... I had fake snow, I had to take more photos. I just had to. I showed this to my mom and ended up with an idea of Calina trying to make a snow angel on the floor with snow. I didn't had enough snow for that, but you get the idea -hopefully- with these photos.

Now I know about this thing, me, who has only seen snow IRL once and a half times in almost 30 years, is going to plan a huge diorama for Coco and V for next year, and take decent photos of them in the snow. They need it!! Will see what I can do.

In the meantime, some cute Totoro Calina photos!
