Dusting

My doll shelf nedeed dusting for quite a while and I decided today is the day. I started from the top shelf, where my fairies and ballerinas are. I picked up Isla and Hadley, the twin Dancing Princesses on their twirling-wagon-dollstand.

Their stand is really annoying, very massive, taking up a lot of space. Well, it isn't any more, though it resisted... My hubby helped me to dismantle it and we made two smaller, sensible stands. While hot glue was setting, I washed Islas hair and took down her original hairdo to give her new curls and an updo. It didn't turn out perfect, guess I was too impatient and her original cut is very uneven, but she looks better anyway.

Then I took Fairytopia Sunburst, a doll with fabulous, original mould, cool hair and tragic body with painted on clothes and moulded rubber wings.

I wanted to give her MS Westley's body, but when I removed  most of the gold glitter from her face, it turned out that her best color match is... Barbie. I had a loose "hobbit" 2007 body, so I gave it to her. I really liked her original hairdo, but it was quite messy from the start, so I pulled it down too.

Looking for a body for Sunburst I came across my Splashy Chic Westley.

 It's been a love-hate relationship since I got her. I wanted to have her, but from the beginning I knew, I'd change her. She's just too much good in one - red lips, blue eyes, golden-yellow eyeshadow, blonde highlights. And when I got her... I lost my concept.
Some time ago I tried to do something about her hair and it was a failure. So today I straightened her hair again and removed lip paint. And then I found out that I run out of paint. Great.

The girls are drying, looking for clothes and waiting for further makeover, so no new photos today.
As you probably noticed, I ended up with more mess than I started with. But I had lots of fun! And I have three more shelves to go. -_-'''

Hello World

Hello,
I'm IHime and I live in Poland. Among many, many things that I do, I collect dolls. Actually, it's been 15 years since I officially skipped from "having dolls" to "collecting them". ;) These are mainly fashion dolls in many shapes and forms, since the only criterium is what I like. I enjoy restyling them, making clothes and I'm working on my photographing skills.
Until recently I've had a never-updated homesite about my dolls and been quite active on The Polish Doll Collector Forum DollPlaza. I've decided to come out with my doll collecting on this blog to meet new people, open up to other points of view and simply share the beauty and joy of collecting.

Now I know how to add a photo :)
