Barbie steps up to the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge!

Barbie meets the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge! I think it's pretty cute. I can't wait to see Bill Greening, Linda Kyaw, and Robert Best meet this challenge as well.

Many More Momoko (and Ruruko)

It's been a while since I've produced a Momoko/Ruruko update, but there are a few more out in the world that need some attention.  Let's begin: 

PetWorks CCS 14AN Momoko (PK, GR):  Pink and Green versions of 14AN will be available for preorder on the PetWorks Global Store website late September.  Pink is a honey face and Green is a cool face with a mole.  They both seem to have a similar floral print worked into their outfits, but you get your choice of boyish or cutesy girl.  Each costs 24,840 yen.

PetWorks Momoko ae <SILVER BUTTERFLY> Life Still Life:  This beauty is designed by Silver Butterfly, doll fashion designer.  The Momoko will be produced on order with preorders taken from September 15th to 29th.  The delivery schedule is April – May 2015, but could be subject to delays.  She will be sold through the PetWorks Global Store.  Life Still Life has a cool face and comes with the outfit pictured.  I especially love the glasses!  She costs 23,760 yen.

PetWorks CCSgirl 14AN Ruruko PS:  There is a new Ruruko coming out with a "release schedule" of late September 2014.  She will be available at the PetWorks Global Store for 21,600 yen.  She sports the same floral print at the 14AN Momoko.  She comes with the outfit pictured and will likely sell out super fast when she goes up on the PetWorks website.

Want some special designs for your dolls?  I provide lots of dolly attire and pattern books.  Support an artist!  Visit my website (MegannArt) for an Etsy shop, Twitter, Facebook (with occasional discounts), Pinterest page, and much more.

Souvenir dolls for sale - and more!

So, I've finally gotten around to listing some of my recent acquisitions for sale. Check them out on the Dollpage Show & Sell. Here's what I've got listed--all are NRFB:

If you check out my page, you can see my sales policies as well as my current trade wish list. Thanks for looking!

New DollHeart outfits for preorder - for Azone's Pure Neemo!

I'm delighted to announce that DollHeart has released a preorder for Rainbow Fairies, which includes two new outfits for Azone's Pure Neemo size dolls. You can purchase the set of fairy costumes (dolls not included) for $84.90, which saves you $4.90 (10%) off retail. They are available from DollHeart directly or from your favorite DollHeart dealer.

Iolanthe is a lavender fairy (according to Wikipedia, it's "a feminine given name, derived from the Greek 'ιολη' (iole) for 'violet' and 'ανθος' (anthos) for 'flower.'" This outfit includes a one-piece dress, skirt, headdress, chain accessory, wing, underwear, petticoat, and socks. It's $44.90 and available for preorder today with an August delivery date.

Ainsel is an aqua version of the rainbow fairy set, and includes a one-piece dress, choker, headdress, wings, a pair of bracelets, petticoat, bloomers, and socks. It's $44.90 when purchased alone and is available for preorder now, with an August release date.

Just for kicks, I looked up "Ainsel" on Wiki, too. You might find it interesting.

Additionally, there's a preview of a new limited costume set called Moloko Plus, which I believe will be released especially for attendees of the Osaka Dollism Plus show. This outfit includes a one-piece dress, hat, belt, underpants and mesh stockings. Price is still to be determined.

New stuff from Azone... but I'm not an Alice fan anymore (Ack! Help me!)

Himeno, Osumashi Mouth
I'm seeing three new items released from Azone this morning that are actually still available for preorder from Hobby Search. In the 1:6 size, Ex Cute series, it's Himeno, only my favorite face, in two versions with a Winter 2014 release date for 11,400 yen (about $112) in two versions - her normal mouth or a straight Osumashi mouth. She's called Classic Alice Tick Tock Rabbit on the S Pure Neemo body.

Next, there's a large gorgeous 50cm girl, only wait list available from Hobby Search, for 42,750 yen (about $419), called Time of Grace Alice. She's really pretty!

Gilded eyelids - from Jason Wu runway show

I didn't understand the trend at first, but it turns out that Jason Wu actually used that sparkling gold (gilded lids) technique on his models for his spring 2014 collection. I'm a little late to the party, I know, but better late than never, right?

Check out this article here on for more information about this technique. Jason Wu's gilded lids show up as 6/8. Maybe it will help me enjoy seeing glitter on my dolls eyes? Who knows? There's that saying about monkeys, too. It looks pretty IRL, though, I have to admit.
