I discovered this adorable vinyl doll Aram doll G by a korean maker on flickr when some of my doll friends posted some photos!

I was hesitating to get her, as my budget was super tight when I was presented the chance to get her… but I really loved the photos I have seen of her and finally caved…

I was presented with a Petite Blythe during one of the Blythe doll meets by my friend mydollies4 and I managed to quickly customise her, in time to take her to a Mini Blythe meet in Granville island on Sunday! Oh, her name is Jules ;)

Petite Blythes are small and cute, and portable :P But I find it very fiddly to make their clothes =_=; I made her little dress from one of the Dolly Coordinates pattern :3

Aki is still a little mysterious, but I learnt that she know how to twist my finger to do things for her ^^;

She’s a little hard to dress (high maintenance?!) as her dark hair tend to make her very washed out in photos, I tried to dress her in a few items before settling on pink again, pink makes her blush and lips stand out a bit more ^o^

Woot Otacool3 get ^^; Decided to do a dollfie dream mod on Mirin, came across a link on modifying dollfie dream when it was posted by sushi_n_sake on twitter. The link about the mod is for the elbow joint, but I read in one of the comments that it can be done on the neck joint, and decided to try that out :)

Requesting dollfie owners who had acquired sewing pieces from me with flickr accounts, to consider adding your dollfie dream musume’s photos wearing puppy love to the Flickr group :)

You will need to send a request to join and you’ll usually be added in 24 hours or so.  Reason I set up the need to request is I want to prevent non related spammers.  I wanted to host images on my website but felt that if in case the owner wish to change the picture or remove pictures they can at least have their own freedom to do so if it’s just adding/removing on the Flickr group :3

If you do not want to join flickr, I can also host your image on my flickr and post it on the flickr group if you like, with a link to your website or contact.  But this will be done manually and may not show up or happen immediately.

Thank you once again for your interest and support!

In 2009, I attended my first Anime Evolution in Vancouver Convention Center (past related posts 1/2/3 ). Most cosplayers photos were taken by my husband and I noticed he really enjoyed doing that, so this year I persuaded him to come with me. He took a lot of nice cosplayer photos once again! You can view them here :D

I took Taiga (Mini Dollfie Dream custom) and Mokotan (Mamachapp) with me this time, and only use LX3 as it’s just too many things to worry about to bring a DSLR camera along ^^;

Been a while since I last made a tutorial, noticed that the links to the past tutorials are a bit messy (oops!)

This pattern is made to fit Dollfie Dream, feel free to adapt it for other dolls!
IMPORTANT!:
You will need to use light colour fabric or a fabric which you know will not stain your Dollfie Dream.  If you want to use a colour fabric, especially dark color fabric, please test it on a part of your doll which is not normally exposed to check if it stains.

In this tutorial, I used a dark grey cotton knit fabric which I have tested on a spare bust piece I have —  I know for sure the fabric I use will not stain my dollfie dream’s vinyl body. I have bad experience with dark sewing thread (black sewing thread especially), so I am using white thread — also, it is easier to see on photos.

You will need:

  • A Dollfie Dream to lend you her leg (or a different doll if you prefer)
  • Light colour knit fabric (example thin tee-shirt material)
  • Paper
  • Eraser (in case of mistakes, or if you are going to trace with a pen after)
  • Pencil (Optional, a pen)
  • Ruler — if you prefer to make a shorter pair of socks
  • Scissors for cutting out the pattern
  • Scissors for the fabric
  • Sewing machine with light thread (not pictured above) Please use ball-point needle for knit fabric!

Blythe doll was the doll which got me into the crazy dolly world, and I know I haven’t been playing with them as much as I am distracted by my Dollfie Dreams :P
