Welcome home Haru, Hotaru and Momo-chan (Maya, Lycee and Minami)

So my Pure Neemos arrived. I originally thought I should sell them since I feel so overwhelmed by BJDs and Pure Neemos (I just can't collect something casually!) but I thought they were so cute, so I'm not gonna sell them, in case I regret it. So I hope I can calm down and collect much, much slower.

Meow Meow Maya. Her name is Haru.
She's an energic and spontaneous girl. 

Meow Meow Lycee. Her name is Hotaru.
Hotaru is a rich girl, who is a bit awkward around people. 

Alice's Tea Party Minami. Her name is Momoko. (Which I know Alejandra finds funny XD)
Momo is a sweet, but worrisome girl.

Just a quick update

Hi~! Long time no see!

I didn't forget about my blog, but my life has been very up and down the last... Well, let's just say for a while OTL 

I still feel very confused about my dolls. I don't plan on changing universe (again xD;;) I just still need to figure it all out. 

Regarding Pure Neemos, I'm hopelessly confused. I want a concept. I don't know how to have dolls, just for the sake of owning them. But I can't find a concept I like. :c Any help would be appreciated and rewarded with internet-hugs. 

Manael (SID Marien) and Ylva (EID Jessica) are with my dear friend, Kanojo Kakumei, in Spain. Soon Leif (LLT Lazuli) will join them, and they'll be back home soon with brand new face-ups :) 
I'm very happy that Shin of Kanojo Kakumei wanted to do a somewhat bigger trade with me. 

I hope it won't be too long until I can gather some coherent thoughts and blog again :3 

Until then here's a photo of Khara:

Changes for my dolls and myself

As some of you may be aware of, I have had a terrible writer's block for a while.
I was thinking some major changes might be able to make my creative juices flowing again. So I have paused my Larika story for now. I hope I will write it someday.
I have another story being created from scratches. And I'm using it for my BJD universe.

So I want to share, what I have so far.
It's a fantasy story inspired by the Viking age. So inspired by our world around year 800-1000 A.D.
I'm not aiming for historical accuracy since it's a fantasy, but I really like the Viking age, so I thought I would take some inspiration from it.
As usual, I will try and see if I can write a multiple viewpoint story.
The story isn't very developed yet. So I don't feel confident sharing the ideas, as they might very well change.

So far I have some vague concepts for my dolls, but I know a bit about my IH Jessica.

Her name will be Ylva Ragnasdatter, she'll be the daughter of a legendary famous shieldmaiden called Ragna, who has passed away. Ylva wants to become a hero like her mother, but in her first and only battle, she fled the fight and has been a laughing stock for the village ever since.
She intends to prove to the people of her country and herself that she isn't a coward, so she joins a journey across the ocean to a different continent that is known to be hostile towards her people, in order to seek an alliance against yet another country they have been fighting for decades.

Also, I'm changing my name back to Lise.
It's rather complicated, but I know people don't see me as anything other than a girl, and by enforcing the name "Nikki" I challenge people (in real life mostly) and they take this as an invitation to completely disregard my gender and identity. I don't want to be optimistic and live in hope that people will suddenly understand, so that's it. I will endure it, as I always have, but this time I won't be living in a fake hope of understanding.

New Hands

I ordered some Pure Neemo hands from foundinjapan together with Maria April 28th, and they just arrived today! I find it very impressive they arrived mere 7 days after I ordered.

Hina is already loving the new opportunities for photos! Haha.

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.
