Taeyang Batman

At first I didn’t like Taeyangs. They seems a bit too feminine for me, especially the ones with lots of makeup.

Girl? Boy?

BUT I decided I wanted one, so after scouring the internet I found Taeyang Batman, who has minimal makeup and more manly (not long, or weird colored) hair!

Colt-1

NANANANANANANAN BATMAN!

He’s so cool! He came in this really sweet Batman outfit that is SUPER detailed. It has a mesh undersuit with rubber details, gloves, arm hook things, his awesome cape, boots and mask! I’m quite impressed with his outfit.

Colt-2

I didn’t keep him in his suit for long, I just wanted him for his body (I’m shallow like that!)

After stripping him of his outfit, de-crunching his hair and dressing him up…

Colt-5

TA-DA! I dressed him in a combination of clothes from a Justin Bieber doll, One Direction dolls and a James Dean doll. I find that the celebrity dolls have a bit nicer clothes than the Ken clothes, but maybe I just haven’t found that much. I used some fabric softener in water to soften his hair and did my best to style it. I like it for now and will hold off on re-wigging him for now. I’ve named him Colt!

Colt-6

I admit I Photoshopped his mouth slightly to make him look less depressed LOL

Colt-8

Colt-12

The only thing I had an issue with is his STUPID LIMBS kept falling off! His arm joint is completely broken and his hands and feet won’t stay in well. I’m going to have get him a new body, which isn’t too bad, I’m just disappointed that a doll that cost such a pretty penny isn’t more durable!

Colt-14

For now, Colt is courting Sophie until I get Pullip Io which I plan to make Colt’s girlfriend. So Sophie is the stand-in for now, and she doesn’t seem to mind :)

Colt-15

Colt-16

So overall I’m really happy with him, I wish his body didn’t fall apart, but I like his face and am so happy with his manliness! Lol!

Pullip Snow White (Minnie)

So far, I’ve chosen my Pullips based on their outfits mainly, but this time I had a very specific idea in mind – I wanted a Minnie Mouse doll! I don’t know where this idea came from, I’ve always loved Minnie. In fact, we’re kind of BFFs.

Minnie and I at a Cast Member dance back in my skinny days

I decided Pullip Snow White would be a great doll for Minnie, with her black hair and red lips. I love her!
Her faceup is so pretty and her eyeshadow even has a little glimmer to it. Her dress is so so pretty! It’s super sparkly and detailed! I love the lace. I was SUPER depressed about her wig though, it fell out everywhere and did not behave at all. I plan on re-wigging her as soon as possible.

SnowWhite

I found out through intense internet research that Chinese Kuhrn dolls have clothes that fit Pullip and there are a TON of Minnie clothes!!!! I died.

THIS DRESS OMG!!!!

SO MANY AHHH!!!!

So of COURSE I had to get the bed first (look at those adorable jammies!):

 

So now I’m sitting twiddling my thumbs until I can get my lovely Minnie clothes, but in the meanwhile I got a Minnie Barbie at Walmart and stole her clothes:

Minnie-2

Minnie-1

I love her! I found the Minnie ears at Walmart as well in the party section. I can’t wait to get her new wig and make her a room and go crazy…sigh. I am quite addicted now I think.

Hello Kitty Posable Doll + Bed [Target]

Recently I saw that Target had some new Hello Kitty toys and MAN are they adorable! Of course Target always has a slew of Hello Kitty items from gumball machines, to microwaves, to safes – but what I really care about are the cute little toys! I saw this little cutie (actually not at Target but the grocery store oddly enough) and I think she’s fab!

HK-17

There are other versions available like Dance, Pop, and Best Friends but I chose this Princess one for her fun dress and bow! They are 13″ posable dolls and are by the brand Blip. She came with everything pictured as well as a tiara that I removed. She’s quite posable, her head turns almost 360 degress and she can go into a full seated position.

HK-15

I also got the bed to go with her (there is also a fun scooter!)

HK-9

The bed is SO CUTE! It has an adorable bow on the end, HK head on the headboard and there are even bows on the mattress (everything is hard plastic). The sheet it comes with is reversible and the pillow is so cute and soft.

HK-10

The bed also came with slippers and an alarm clock. I wish it came with PJ’s, but it didn’t, so I ended up buying this My Life doll clothes set at Walmart that came with a shirt (it works best as a nightie on her), shorts, the robe and some purple slippers. The robe is a bit big and I had to roll up the sleeves but overall I think it looks pretty cute. Better than going to bed in a princess dress!

HK-14

I even had a HK sleep mask that fit! I love how it makes her look like she’s sleeping!

HK-11

Since Hello Kitty doesn’t have a lot of movement, she doesn’t fit in the bed super well and there’s a large gap between her upper body and the bed. It works well enough though.

HK-13

Of course Sophie had to take a turn in the bed as well. It fits Pullips very well.

Sophie-HKBed-1

Slumber party!

HK-12

The dolls are available at Target and retail for $24.99.

Re-ment Modern Comfort Kitchen

Recently I had purchased the Modern Comfort Kitchen from www.fan21hk.com and I finally got around to taking pics and video for it!

Kitchen-10

I took away the awful ugly food in the background by covering it with some polka dot paper. Granted, it looks a bit weird with everything, including the fridge, having dots in the background, but oh well. Maybe I’ll decide to fix that later, who knows. I’m pretty happy with how it came out and I just love this kitchen! The dishwasher is a bit weird, it’s a just a big basket, but that’s ok. I love the sink area and I made a little towel to hang on the little rack ^.^ How adorbs. I used several different Re-ments to fill it all up (there were still quite a few empty shelves – guess I need more Re-ments! LOL) including the Rilakkumart, Happy Natural Time, Tamago Egg Series, and the Chocolate Cafe.

Kitchen-5

Kitchen-7

Kitchen-9

Now all I need are the Rilakkuma Gohan and the Rilakkuma Hokkori re-ments for the toaster and toaster oven ^.^

Sophie even had some fun playing in the kitchen!

Pullip Madness!!

So after my last post I went a TOUCH crazy. And by a touch I mean a lot crazy. I received some money at Christmas so I ran to purchase the Alice du Jardin Mint Pullip that I saw on Pullip Style for only $100 and FREAKED because I’ve seen them on eBay for around $300 so I bought her Christmas evening (I’m so patient, I know). Then shortly after I got paid for a side project and thought, well I have to get the pink one now, so I got her too! They came super fast, and at the same time so I filmed a double unboxing video (linked below) and they are SOOOO PRETTYYY!!!!! I love their dresses so much, they are so detailed and lovely and their wigs are so lovely! I was very sad with the mint wig though, there are some spots where you can see the wig cap and I think I messed with the hair too much because the hair started to fall out (I almost cried) but overall I’m super happy with them! I named them Julep (mint) and Rosy (pink)!

My First Pullip doll!

Hello friends! So I had seen Pullips on Flickr before and thought there were really pretty but it wasn’t until I saw a doll collection video on Youtube that I started looking into them more. I saw Pullip Akemi and KNEW I had to get her as my first, it was love at first sight!

Akemi-11

 If you don’t know, Pullips are Korean dolls that are ball jointed so they can be placed in many different positions and are super customizable including their hair, eyes, faces, clothes, pretty much everything! There are different styles of dolls in different body sizes and faces, and some I think are kinda depressing looking, but Pullips are so pretty!

 

Akemi-19

Akemi-4

Akemi-7

This is what I look like most days hahah this picture always makes me happy

Akemi-8

(more photos of her on my Flickr)

I love her style, it’s so cute and my two favorite colors, pink and blue! She’s so sweet and I imagine her personality as cute, spunky and silly. I got her at Pullip Style  and she came very quickly, I highly recommend them. She was a bit pricey, she was a gift from the husband for Christmas! I can’t wait to get new clothes and accessories and I’m already eyeing other dolls hehe (can we say obsessed?). There are already a few I’m looking at putting on my wishlist including these:

Pullip Kiyomi

Pullip Romantic Alice

Pullip Alice du Jardin Mint

Pullip Merl

 

So many cute ones ahhh!!!!! Anyway, I’m super happy with Sophie and I can’t wait to post more about her! Check out the video I made of her:

 And my Flickr set on her. Bye bye!

(Hubby’s) Contest Winnings! + Re-ment Kitchen

A little while ago Ariel over at Rilakkuma Desu had an amazing giveaway that I entered and I asked my husband to enter it for me (so I could have better chances of winning, of course, hehe). Well, turns out he WON…and then changed his mind about giving me the prizes LOL. That’s what I get for turning my hubs on to Rilakkuma. We got the prizes and he agreed to give me everything but the plush (which I already had anyway so I didn’t pitch a fit) and a few other small things (including the Kori plastic figure which I really wanted…but oh well lol) so I guess it was a win-win! Thank you Ariel!!!!!

IT’S SO BEAUTIFUL!!!!

WP_20131126_18_38_32_Pro

I’ve been wanting a Re-ment kitchen for a long time, so when I saw this set for a STEAL at Fan21HK I HAD to get it and proceeded to freak out. The oven even makes a sound (which scared the living crap out of my husband when he picked up the package for me)! The cardboard cartoon backgrounds are kinda really ugly so I’ll definitely be replacing them, but I’m totally happy with this set! It came with four (huge) pieces including the dishwasher, oven, sink, fridge and lots of storage room! I apologize for the crappy photos but I was so excited! The red of the kitchen matches the Tamago Rilakkuma Re-ment perfectly and the Rilakkumart Re-ment provided most of the fun kitchen items like soap, sponge, paper towels and tons of food. I’m SO EXCITED to get this set put together and admire the tiny kitchen…

Happy Natural Time Rilakkuma Matchbox + Pouch

I used to be very heavily active in the online trading community, Swap-bot, and matchboxes were very popular! All you do is decorate the matchbox and then fill it with goodies! I made a 250 count matchbox (the bigger one) for my friend Chelsie on Youtube and I since we both love the new Rilakkuma series Happy Natural Time I decided to go with it as a theme! I love how it turned out!

matchbox1

I used this awesome ribbon set I had gotten at Michaels and it had all the fun teal ribbon and it was I think a dollar which was AMAZING! Anyways, I drew the same kind of pattern that in on the stationery for this series. I recreated the cook book from the re-ment for the top (it’s a smaller matchbox) and I filled it with a little deer cookie and a muffin I made using a piece from the re-ment as well.

rement

mathbox2

matchbox3

matchbox4

I filled it with this super cute deer charm from Michaels, some deco tape, a handmade tart (I show it in the video below, for some reason i didn’t take a picture), some buttons of the series and other fun items for her. It was fun filling it with items that fit the theme!

pouch

Lastly I made this little zipper pouch. I used the wallpaper from the San-x website and printed on printable fabric to make it. I should have set the ink before sewing because the ink smeared and got faded :( I remember to do that next time. Overall I’m happy with how it turned out!

Here is the video showing everything in more detail:

Poor, blind, Kiiroitori.

So I think I’m like, the last person ever to get this set of plushes but OMG SO CUTE!!!! I’m super excited to have this set, it’s so super adorable and I love their little costumes! I remember the first time I saw pictures of this plush I literally busted out laughing at poor little Kiiroitori! He can’t see! Hahahhah! How hilarious.
