Incoming Pure Neemos

In this post, I want to share a bit about what Pure Neemos I'm waiting for at the moment.

Since I already shared the news about preordering Himeno, I won't include her, even though I'm indeed waiting for her as well.

I ordered two Pure Neemos together with Maria

First up is Meow x Meow a la Mode- Kuroneko Lycee 
I have decided on naming her Hotaru 

And in the same order, I have Meow x Meow a la Mode- Russian Blue / Alisa 
Her name will be Nanami

A short while after I placed a layaway order for two additional Pure Neemos.

This time, Meow x Meow a la Mode- Abyssinian / Maya
This girl is gonna be Haru

And I ended up adding an Alice's Tea Party Series Kanihoru x nico joint exhibition version Minami
I will name her Momoko

And lastly, I ended up partially trading my YoSD Nana for a Komorebi no Doubutsu-tachi Kuma-san Koron
I have decided on the name Sayuri

I have completely figured out how this universe will be. I know they will all be high school students, but otherwise, I just have some vague ideas for personalities. 

Ae you guys waiting for non-BJD dolls? If so I would love to hear about it :3

Introducing Hina

So I fell hard into the Pure Neemo hole.
Hina (Otogi no Kun - Miu and the Frog Prince) was the most recent Pure Neemo I have ordered, but because she was in stock at PlasticPop I received her not even half a week from I placed the order~

I had intended to do a box opening, but my camera's battery died, so I charged it a little while unboxing Hina and then took some quick photos.

I don't think anything about the doll surprised me. I had a lot of expectations and I must say I was not disappointed.

Doomed by Cuteness!

While BJDs are paused for me right now, I have found another thing to be passionate about.

I have no idea, why now? I have known about Pure Neemos for quite a while, and if you knew me very well, you would know I would say stuff like "sure they're cute, but they're not for me".
There's a Danish saying: "Du har et standpunkt, til du tager et nyt", which translates to something like "You have a view on things until you get a new one", which is definitely what has happened to me.

I can't remember the exactly way of how it happened, but I think Maria showed me the Otogi no Kuni Wizard of Oz Himeno, which was a preorder at Nippon Yasan. I fell completely in love with her, and somehow Maria and I ended up preordering her, even though we have to wait forever for her.

Temporary BJD break

The BJD hobby as a whole feels very demotivating and I don't have the same spark as I used to. I don't think I'm about to leave the hobby, but I think I need a break from it.
I may still keep doing my ADAW challenge, and who knows, maybe I can talk myself into taking some extra BJD photos as well, but we'll see.

For now, have a photo of my dog, Cleo, whom just got a haircut. :3

Update + Photo of Gabby

Thank you guys for the previous comments <3 It means a lot. I'm doing somewhat better.
I have been participating in Camp NaNoWriMo in April. I'm not done, of course, but I'm above my average word count, so I think it's going decently. :)

Otherwise, I still hate my writing, I still feel "meh" about my characters, and I still feel like a failure. Haha.
I don't want to give up on the story, I have been working on it for ten years now, so I feel very attached to it, but I'm thinking of giving it a break and working on other things.

I will probably keep my dolls and the characters they are.
But I have decided to sell some floating heads since I don't feel attached to the particular sculpts.

ADAW for week 14

Being real and seeking advice

I know I have shared a lot of details about my personal life on this blog, and I'm gonna continue to do so.
I have lost motivation. I feel dead inside and I don't even know if I should stop writing stories altogether. I know it's probably my brain messing with me, but it's so tough and confusing.

I have considered a lot of possibilities:
- Creating a new universe and creating a bunch of new stories to work on besides Larika?
- Giving up on the current universe and create a new one?
- Giving up entirely on writing?

I used to love everything about creating stories. Now I feel empty and hollow, even when I try to imagine the characters and the stories, it's so demotivating.

I don't know anymore. Sorry for being down again...

Ramble and photos of Annabelle

I went to my psychiatrist and it went very well. I hope it'll be the start of better recovery!
It isn't magic, I'm not gonna get cured today and that's that. But I believe I will feel better and better soon, and at some point live a life, where I'm happy. :)


I haven't been thinking much about my story or the characters lately. I haven't had the mental capacity to do so, but it'll come back I'm sure.

I found a trade on DoA recently. I have been wanting an Impldoll Delia as Connor version 2! And a dark tan Delia head showed up, so I took the chance and proposed a trade, which the seller agreed to. Delia arrived just yesterday, and I love love love the head.


I posted some pictures of Annabelle a while ago.
