19 inch GentleTouch Vinyl Super Hero Doll Baby Boy Doll By Jen Print

Whew, say that title 10 times fast. LOL! So my mom has recently gotten the collector's bug, and found herself interested in realistic looking baby dolls. Not being sure if she'd like these kinds of dolls, she decided to get into the hobby slowly with a cute and affordable doll. Searching through one of her favorite only marketplaces, who doesn't love Amazon, she found several cutie pies, and she found one she just had to bring home. Be sure to click the pictures to see them at full size.

This is the Super Hero Baby Doll produced by Gentle Touch Vinyl by the artist Jen Print. This little guy comes in his Super Hero costume, has a cloth body, and a super precious face. He's got a bit of weight to him, but isn't overly heavy. His body is a soft cloth body, and it's good for holding or cuddling. His costume is super cute with an attached cape and a felt mask. Now with the cape you'll want to be careful because we noticed that it can snag easily. My mom got a second doll and straight out of the box the cape was snagged in two places. Just something to keep in mind.

My mom decided she wanted a second doll after she got her first boy, but decided she wanted the second one to be a girl so he could have a twin sister. The face works perfectly for that. My mom tried different outfits and 0-3 months baby clothes works "fairly" ok. Premature baby clothes might work better for them because the onesie kind of bags in the crotch, but get them some good fitting pants and you won't notice really. The head has a good amount of hair in it, and you can create cute hairstyles with it.

I am in love with these dolls, they are super cute and look charming in their new outfits. The horse in the background is a toy my brother, sister, and I all played with as a child. And yes, that means it's vintage, *sniffle* I'm so old. LOL! But I think they look so sweet "playing" with their toys. But I think my mom has been firmly bitten by the collector's bug...she's got a new doll coming in tomorrow, and this one is a super cutie too. I'll post about it tomorrow once UPS drops it off. Until then, take care my awesome readers. Bye for now. :-)

Impressive Sailor Moon Collection

I've seen tons of Barbie collection rooms, but this is the first time I've seen a Sailor Moon collections room. Very impressive.

I love all the bright colors. Who knew Sailor Moon had so many dolls? I really like the baby dolls. I kind of want to get one Disney Princess doll but I can't decide which one. I would usually always pick Ariel, but I love Anna now too, so it's a toss up between the two...and Snow White...and Rapunzel...and...Tiana...and...I think you get the idea. LOL! I just wanted to share this with you guys as I am sure some of you will find it interesting like I did. :-) Talk to you guys soon. Bye for now.

4 Months Until Christmas???

Nooooo!!! Where did the time go?!?!? Ugh! I wanted to be so crafty in the coming holidays and it's like time is just slipping away. I have to light a fire under my bum to get things started. So I have to admit something to you embarrassing...remember the wardrobes I've been trying to make my mom and sister for a couple of years now? Yeah, still working on it. Whattttt?!?!? Depression is a bitch, that's my excuse. But I am feeling a little bit better and now that I know I have 4 months, I am starting now to work on things. I have a lot of stuff done, but each year I add 20 more items, so I believe this year I am up to 60 items as well as other items I am adding in for certain events. But that is 60 per, so that's 120. LOL! I do have some of that done already, so I am not totally screwed. I am determined to get it done this year. So I am going to start planning now and getting started in the next few days. few weeks. What? The Sims 4 is coming out on the second of September...I wanna play. :-D But after I play for a while then I am seriously getting to business...seriously. Yeah. :-)

So you have all gotten your four month warning. If you are planning to craft for gifts, craft for dolls, or just craft in general, you have 4 months left. Let the countdown begin....NOW! :-) Talk to you next time awesome people. Bye for now. :-)

Cyber Goth For Dolls???

1So for a while now I have been trying to create an original character named Leia, and she would be into cyber goth fashion. But the doll I always had picked out for her was a Resinsoul Bei in tan, which makes her the height of roughly a regular fashion doll, but she’s thicker. I thought of making her a cyber goth fairy kind of, but I am wondering how much detail I can get in that size, should I try to get a bigger body, would a bigger body change her character, or am I being a wimp by not at least trying to make her clothing first.

I’ve know I’ve wanted one or two cyber goth characters in my collection for a while now, and I’ve been looking up cyber goth pictures and tutorials on how to make clothing and accessories for humans and planning on how to make them doll size. I am not sure where I want to start with my girl, and I am also going to come into a problem when it comes to shoes. But I’ve had her for a while now and haven’t done anything with her, much like my two other Bobobie/Resinsoul girls. I have decided it’s time to take them out and enjoy them. I mean I always get the white skin resin for dolls and by the time I play with them they have buttered. So from now on I am refusing to do that. I am going to pull them out and tinker and see how they work. I still have a goal of making my own dolls one day, it might help me some to know how dolls work in general. So Bei will be my first attempt.


I think I want to make her, I believe they are called waterfalls for her hair, fuzzy leggings for sure, and maybe even a tail? But I am not sure on her actual clothing yet. I know I will go for a skirt, short and slightly poofy, but I’m not sure on the top yet. I just love the bright colors of cyber goth fashions and I think they will look awesome against her tan resin. I just really want to try to get some detail in her clothing that will stand out some.


Also, the shoe issue, I don’t want to spend a lot on shoes, but I kind of want her to have several pairs she can switch between. I wonder if there are any dolls with feet her size. I’ll have to look through my collection of shoes and see if I came across any dolls that had bigger feet. I guess I need to head back to Den of Angels and other doll forums to see if others have found inexpensive ways to put shoes on the feet of their dolls. I just don’t want to spend more on her shoes than mine, especially since I’ve got several dolls that need shoes here that aren’t easy to come by. I might also have to look into making my own shoes as well. That will be interesting. I wonder if I can make the soles with 3D printing and then work around that? Hummmmm???


And to top things off I am also curious about including a little Japanese Punk Fashion into her wardrobe. It can also tend to be bright and funky, but maybe I will stick with just one fashion style per doll. I kind of like the idea of giving each one a unique style. Well not each one, just my special ones…I’ve got a lot of dolls and there isn’t enough time in the world to sew unique wardrobes for all of them. But some of them will definitely be getting the clothing treatment.


I guess I am just in thinking mode lately. I need to go through my fabrics and see what I’ve got and come up with some clothing ideas. I guess what is scarring my off is that fact that I have to come up with patterns for some of the items I want to make. I am not sure how to go about that, but I am willing to try and error to find what works for me. I hope to have something to share here soon, even if it’s just color swatches I am thinking of using. Stay tuned for that. And I will close on that note. Until next time lovelies, take care. Bye for now.

I Got To Be A Google Doodle…Well Kinda

Can we just pause and reflect on the fact that I got a Google Doodle just for me today? When I got onto Google today, I was wondering who’s birthday it was today when I saw the cakes. I hovered over the image and got a surprise.


I was so shocked and then I of course I had to tell someone I had a Google Doodle. My sister was the only one around, but she was impressed, so I felt validated in my search for someone. LOL! So yeah, next time your birthday rolls around, take a look at Google, you may have your own Birthday Google Doodle waiting for you. Birthday cake Bye for now lovelies. Smile

Happy Birthday To Me!!!

100_0622I’ve done it! I’ve made it around the sun again!!! On to another year!!! I always see my birthday as my real “new year” instead of January 1st. I see it as a chance to make myself a better person so when my birthday springs up on me in the next 365 days, 366 in a leap year, I’ll have something to show for. In the past couple of years I haven’t changed much due to feeling like crap all the time, but I have decided to  change myself and my life this year. When I turn 37 I want to celebrate the year I’ve had and look forward to 38. This year is going to be a crazy year, I can tell. I have plans on how I want to change myself and I have plans on meeting new people and making new friends. So I’m looking forward to being 36 for the next 365 days and seeing what I can truly become. So again, Happy Birthday to me, and may the next year introduce me to a women I never knew I could I be. Smile
And on that note, I am off to have a slice of this lemon cake with lemon frosting, my mom made me. I think it’s adorable and I laughed when I came into the kitchen and saw it. She’d been planning it for a while. She’s planning my sister’s, which she has told me about in the strictest of confidence, and I can’t wait to show you it…in April. Well hey, maybe we’ll make one for Christmas, you never know. I mean I do have to make up for last Christmas, which was truly one of the saddest Christmases I have ever had, next to the first one without my brother. So this year has to be different, and very happy. Smile I’ll talk to you lovelies tomorrow. Until then, take care. Bye for now.
