Annabelle v. 3

I have been given so thought about what dolls I want for specific characters. This post will talk about Annabelle Whittle.



A small introduction:
Annabelle is the youngest sibling of the Hale kids. Her mother, Yanavan, was an Isanu woman who fell in love with Jack Hale. Little to Yanavan's knowledge Jack was already married and the leader of a rebellion against the humans in Larika.
Yanavan wanted nothing to do with the trouble that was Jack Hale, so she fled with her newborn baby girl, but Jack found them and took Annabelle with him.
Annabelle grew up with Jack Hale and his wife, Kate, and their three other kids. It was an unstable household which shaped Annabelle and her siblings into what they are now.
Annabelle meets a young Karrian ex-military woman named Nneka. They fall in love.
When Jack dies from a fight, Annabelle's brother, Adam, is announced to be the new leader, and Annabelle asks him for help leaving the rebellion.
But when Annabelle gets a hold of information, that the government is slowly starting to realize the rebellion exists, she heads back to her childhood home to warn her family.

Annabelle used to be a Iplehouse SID Marien in light brown skin.





But after I changed some things up in the story, I'm considering going for a real skin next time.
At this moment, I have considered SID Zera, but it might be subject to change.

Plans and thoughts

I have been jumping back and forth between SD and MSD, and have gotten really confused in the process.

I know I want the Larika characters, so I think I'm gonna go for those as SDs. I was lucky enough to be able to buy an Ordoll Sui head from my friend, Maria, at a long layaway.
I want her to be Scarlet Hale from the Larika story.


I have had her as a Dollmore Lisa Rubik



Fairyland Feeple65 Angela



And lastly Dollshe Amanda




My own personal favorite was Angela.

As for MSDs. Stuff happened with a failed sales, so I had to cancel a layaway. It sucks, but it is what it is.
I might still buy a single slim mini, at some point, so I can buy cute pastel wigs and oscar doll eyes, but it can't be any time soon.

For a long while to come, I have to save up for the next Danish BJD con!
I look very much forward to it :3

Incoming + wishlist

I thought I would merge these two topics into one single post.


I placed an order from Sprouty together with Maria. The first three pairs of eyes are Sprouty eyes. I ordered a pair of dark brown-ish eyes, which I hope can be used for Nneka (if she ends up as Impldoll Delia) or otherwise Connor perhaps. The next pair is the blue 12mm, which I hope will fit Gwen (BC Kaorin), and the purple pair is for a future doll. The last pair is 10mm blue ED Milky eyes, which I will use for Rose (Iplehouse nYID Nancy).


Speaking of BC Kaorin, I'm waiting for a Kaorin head. I ordered a custom face-up and ask for a neutral look, but with lots of freckles. I don't know how she looks, I just used the stock photo for reference. She'll be my character, Gwen, who is a total badass. If I should pick a top three of strongest characters in the Larika story, Gwen would be in third place, Darin in second and of course Gerda in first.

 
I ended up buying an Impldoll Alma head in the Impldoll Thanksgiving Event. I really think she'll be a good Annabelle. I ask for a special real skin tone and no face-up. I don't know if I'm gonna paint her myself, time will show.


_______________________________________________________

My wishlist is as follows:


Human Impldoll Derrick in special real skin as Tahir.

 
Dollzone Merlin in NS as Hunter.



Simply Divine Valentina in NS on a Dollstown 18 yrs girl body as Scarlet.


Dollshe Erica Snow in Pure Skin oriental as Gabriela.


Impldoll Aurora in special tan skin as Connor.




Nimphaerytales Quimera in NS on a Volks SD13 girl body as Gerda.

Photos belong to their respective owners of course.

Mystery Blogger Award

It would seem, my dear friend Niina over at Dollsdolour tagged me for the Mystery Blogger Award. I feel so happy, whenever I get tagged, just because "hey, someone actually thought of me" :P Thank you so much sweetie!


So, this award was made by Okoto Enigma. I like when people create these sorts of things. It's so much fun!

The rules for the award:
1. Put the award logo/image on your blog.
2. List the rules.
3. Thank whoever nominated you and provide a link to their blog.
4. Mention the creator of the award and provide a link as well.
5. Tell your readers three things about yourself.
6. You have to nominate 10-20 people.
7. Notify your nominees by commenting on their blog.
8. Ask your nominees any five questions of your choice; with one weird or funny question (specify).
9. Share a link to your best post(s).

Three things about myself:
1. My Larika project was started when I was 18 years old, so by now, it's 11 years ongoing. I've come way further this time around, but it took a lot of deconstruction and reconstruction to make it work.
2. I have a small dog. Her name is Cleo and she is my baby. I drove 240kms to bring her home, and it was worth it!
3. I'm trying to learn how to read again. I mean, I can read, I have no problem actually doing the task, but I'm trying to learn to concentrate enough to read. Currently, I'm reading a YA book written by Claus Hagstrøm called "Se, Nu Stiger Solen".

Niina's questions:
1. Which doll do you regret buying?
2. What moment in your life would you love to experience again?
3. Coffee or Tea? Why?
4. What will people be nostalgic about in say 30 years, do you think?
5. The most embarrassing clothes you have worn?

1. Which doll do you regret buying?
My initial thought was the MNF Ante I bought because I lost a lot of money selling her, only for the buyer to turned around and sell her for the original amount right after. That sucked, but it is, what it is.
2. What moment in your life would you love to experience again?
Possibly something from my time at the boarding school. My last year there, was the best year of my life. 
3. Coffee or Tea? Why?
Coffee. Tea doesn't give me enough energy. But I do love tea, even if I rarely drink it.
4. What will people be nostalgic about in say 30 years, do you think?
Perhaps smartphones? Or Justin Bieber? Or Fidget Spinners? haha
5. The most embarrassing clothes you have worn?
Hmm, I have a weird relationship with my wardrobe, so I'm not really sure.

I'm afraid most people I know have been tagged, so I won't come up with any questions, but thanks for reading :)

Whoops, I forgot to blog for a while

How are you all doing? It's been a while since I last made a blog post.

I have been up and down.
I have focused a lot on writing rather than doll stuff lately. It's been wonderful to see my story grow and grow, even though I'm stuck right now. I lost the general view of my story. It's like I can't gather my focus, but I got a good advice this weekend. I'm gonna try and write all plot points on post-it notes and try and make sense out of it.

When I have been doing doll stuff, it's mostly just a weekend with friends.
It was nice and I had a lot of fun. I even got a bit of drive back, so now I want to seriously see, if I can get a Dollzone body for my soon to be shipped Black Cherry Doll Kaorin!
I have other small things I really want, like for instance eyes for Rose and Gwen (Kaorin), a wig for Gwen and more clothes for my girls, but it'll take some time for me to gather some funds.



So that's pretty much what's up for me. I hope everyone is enjoying the summer!

Back to SDs again

As you may have guessed from the title of this post, I'm indeed back to SDs again.

Dollie-less days

So in these days where my girls are at Pantheon_Theory's place, I had even less motivation for doing anything BJD related. But I thought a blog post couldn't hurt.

Gabriela 

I have been changing a lot on the Larika story. Probably not things anyone, besides Maria, will notice. It's stuff like the history of the faes, the magic, the different fae subspecies, and so on, have changed. I also know a lot more about what happened prior in the history of this universe. 

What's even more exciting, is that I now know what I want for the "Solens Døtre" story as well. I'm totally ready to work more seriously on it when the Larika story is all done. I can give a short idea of what this story is about. 
An all teenage girl military with fight griffins, female friendships, a mentor/pupil relationship that evolves into something closer to mother/daughter relationship, a secret rebel group who opposes the king, corruption, war, death. 
I'm so ready for this story! I hope to finish the first draft of the Larika story this year if everything works out.
But the "Solens Døtre" story has an almost entirely new cast of characters, there might be one or two you would recognize from the Larika story, but they're much younger in "Solens Døtre" because it takes place some years prior to the Larika plot.

I don't know what I wanted to say with this ramble, besides that, I'm so excited about writing currently.
