I'm more or less back, and I'm going to try to post regularly. I wanted to post this before the "Norma Desmonds" new chapter, but I wasn't able to take any pictures, and I didn't want the hiatus to be too long.
First of all I would like to thank Brini and Phyllis for tagging me for the Liebster Award. It was very sweet from both of you. I really appreciate it, but right now I don't feel like talking about me, it may sound silly, but right now I just want to chat about dolls.
Now I'm going to show you what has been going on in my collection since november:
I played Frankendollie and rebodied my favourite Model Muse girls to FR2 Bodies:
Here are Maddalena, Matilde, Rebecca and Olga.
They are wearing samples of the girls' tartan collection, a steampunk outfit and a 30's dress (I needed a model for this dress, Olga stile will be different): I love them with these new bodies!!!!
Here Agata and Emilia are wearing the remaining outfifs from the girls' tartan collection
Of course I finished Tecla's wardrobe, but this will have a post of its own.
These are the new girls from IT 2015 collection:
Adalgisa (Tatiana) and Bice (Erin). They are absolutely beautiful. I love their honey coloured hair and I like a lot the new NuFace body!
They are wearing dresses from last Summer Collection.
This is Emilio, in his steampunk outfit. He's a shady character and I love his smirk!
I also ordered these three new guys who are on their way:
And Chrome Noir Erin (she's going to be called Priscilla)
With these dolls I feel like I really have all the characters I may need, both for modeling and stories. They are nearly too many and I'm starting loosing track of them! And I want to be able to play with them all!!!! So unless something incredible will happen (i.e. a JamieShow guy in 1/6 scale) I don't feel like adding anything more this year. Maybe it is because Lilith has been my grail doll for such a long time and now I just look forward to seeing her.
Last but not least, I sew a whole 30's wardrobe for Ofelia. Sometime I'm going to write a noir story for her and Goffredo and she screamed for the right wardrobe to wear!!!
Here is a sneak preview of the whole thing, hopefully I'll have time to take some nice B/W pictures of the girls wearing these outfits!
This is all for last three months events. You can see I haven't posted a lot but I sew like crazy!
Let's take a look to what I'm planning for 2016
This year destination for the Redhead Connection will be "Cinqueterre. This place is one of the landmarks you must not miss when visiting Italy, and they are not very far from where I live.
The Norma Desmonds are going to keep us company for a while, I've already written 6 chapters (I published two so far) and the story is unfolding nicely. I'm planning to use as many dolls as I can in the proceedings, so stay tuned!
As usual we are planning two trips this year, we have not decided yet, but we are really tempted to return to Santo Domingo in november, let's keep finger crossed....
In order to keep track of all the new girls and boys I'm going to add a page with all the "couples" and I'll leave on the "models" page only the MM unarticulated dolls. In the new page I'll also add a description with the original name of the doll.
Billina and Carlo will travel too, I'm still undecided about their destination too: it could be Mexico (in at least 3 instalments) or Uzbekisan and Jordan. What would you like best?
I have to spend some time on Billina's travelling wardrobe first, and I have all these new dolls to dress.....
I already have an idea for the Summer Collection and also this year the models will present it in Japan. I only showed you Osaka and the temples this year, there's a lot more to see!
As I'm not making any progress on the Urban Cowboy collection I will probably introduce the guys with the dresses I've made so far, possibly I'll be able to make the one for Sebastiano, as I planned this as vehicle for him (poor guy, since he met Pietrina he's been living in her shadow).
As many of you loved Onofrio I'm planning some very short stories about him.
The last project is the last chapter of Cecilia's quest for love, again I'm working on the outfits. So far I've made one and selected the other dresses. I also decided where this great event will take place.
If I'm going to put off half of what I have in mind I'll be very happy. They are so many this blog is starting to look like a job! LOL
I look forward to your comments and suggestions, I'll try to work first around the most popular ideas!
A huge Kiss
