Sara To You by Limhwa

Oh no... another doll fetish!

I recently have been on a tiny BJD kick. This is Sara, created by Korean manufacturer Limhwa Dolls, and she is in the 10.5" (27 cm) slim size, which makes her a little shorter than Barbie.

She wears a size 6 mm eye (eee!) and her faceplate removes from the front, which actually makes them fairly easy to change, even for those of us who are challenged with changing eyes.

These dolls can be ordered from Junkyspot--in fact, they currently have them in stock (and one fewer, as of yesterday, thanks to the fact that I felt Sara needed a tan Mari for a friend) for between $240 and $255, I believe, including a face-up and eyes.

They have singly jointed elbows and knees, and their feet are big enough and strung well enough to stand easily on their own.

They have a really unique handmade feel about them. Check out this group on Flickr to see the differences in resin tone, for example. Plus their tiny face-ups have such a soft look to them. Just amazing!

Sleeping Cue in Rococo

Looking to add a little French Court to your BJD collection? Let me help.

I've just posted a FS/WTT post of Den of Angels for this amazing Rococo styled sack-back gown. You can see more photos on Flickr.

I'm asking $125 for the gown (single piece with zipper closure), and an additional $50 if you require the support hoop skirt (shown here), plus an adorable soft blonde DollHeart ponytail wig for just $35.

I can ship anywhere, though my best guess will be a flat rate priority box will be easiest.

Let me know if I can answer any questions for you.

Ack! I did it!

I broke down and ordered the new limited edition doll, Bella the Moon - Into the Woods. I saw another fan's comment on her similarity to Amalthea in The Last Unicorn, and it just brought me up over the top.

Ack! I'm so excited. I ordered a white skin version, full set.

New limited edition BJDs from Peak's Woods!

Two new limited edition dolls have been announced at Peak's Woods. Yeru - Into the Woods and Bella the Moon - Into the Woods. The dolls can be ordered as full sets, blank or a la carte, and the outfit, created by Corona, is also available separately.

Base price of the large dolls starts at $522 for a Fairy of Color (58cm) doll in your choice of white or normal skin, large or normal bust. It's $590 for the Absolute Beauty (two body styles, three bust options). Full set option is $718 for FOC, $786 for AB body.

Additionally, you may order just the face-up for $70, additional AB hand parts for $28, boots for $36, and the outfit for $126.

The outfit includes: inner dress, dress, cape, arm warmers, a belt and the basket. Plus, the doll will include a random pair of acrylic eyes and the wig shown.

They are available for ordering from now, February 13, through March 17, 2013.

I haven't ordered Bella yet--though I've got both a tan and normal skin Yeru--both dolls are so adorable! Yikes! I'm loving the creepy white eyelashes and eyeliner on Bella.

New Absolute Beauty BJD from Peak's Woods - Bella the Moon

There's a brand new Absolute Beauty BJD available now from Peak's Woods--a redesigned Briana with a slightly open mouth--called Bella the Moon. I think she's just gorgeous. And if that doesn't completely throw a wrench in my doll collecting plans, I don't know what else will!

I was planning to add Vamp Goldie and Vamp Briana to my collection next--but I have a thing for open-mouth dolls. I just think they are adorable. You can make them yawning or sleeping looking, and they are hard to do. This version has a little sleepier eyes as well. Oh, she is amazing.

Bella the Moon is the same price as the regular line--$590--available in normal or white skin--in two body types (Type A or Type B) with small, normal or large bust. You can add make-up for $70, and add an additional set of hands for $28. High heel feet are included.

Check out how cute she is--dressed in sort of historical fashion or as a modern girl (OMG--the watch!).
