Iplehouse EID Yur is trying out a different look--a blonde wig by Michele Hardy. I think she looks really cute as a blonde.

Soom's latest monthly doll is saccharine sweet!

This morning, Soom released a new Monthly Doll in the Doll Fairy Tales Collection. This particular doll, Sweet Witch, is inspired by the frightening classic tale of Hansel & Gretel.

I have seen and owned many Monthly Dolls in my time, and I have to admit, her fantasy pieces are among my favorite.

Sweet Witch comes with:
-The restyled Super Gem body in either "Baby Pink" or "Smoky Grey"
-An additional "romantic" head (which shows her cute teeth!)
-Long-nailed hands with hearts
-Little horns
-High Heel Feet with Sculpted Shoes (TO DIE FOR)
-Original SG high heel feet

 This girl also has a wealth of optional addons!
-Limited Edition Face-up
-Body blushing
-Limited "Sweet Witch" 14mm glitter eyes
-Fullset outfit - which is so FREAKING CUTE
-Broom & Broom holding hand

There is so much to love about this newest MD. She has a very youthful style, which is vaguely reminiscent of some of Volks' latest Dollfie Dreams (Melty comes to mind). I really feel like the designers outdid themselves - she is at once both saccharine sweet and deliciously deceptive!

I really had ought to plant myself one of those money trees....

Rexy by alington

Rexy is also pleased to be able to steal some new clothing items from Yur--Rexy is the nYID size by Iplehouse, and Yur is the EID size. I didn't realize just how curvy Rexy was till she arrived!

This peach dress fits, though it has a slight tendency to slip down just a little now and then. Poor girl!

EID Yur (Iplehouse) has finally gotten some clothing she can wear. She's thrilled not to have to be totally naked anymore!

She's wearing a black halter top dress, beige open knit sweater, and black glitter lingerie set--all by Iplehouse.

Above, Peak's Woods Skiya is modeling a new pink wig by Leeke. You can tell a great girl sculpt by how great she looks in a pink wig. (I believe I heard that from Michele Hardy!) Through April 30, 2013, Denver Doll is offering a Spring Fling wig event with Leeke World wigs.

Your $60 will buy you:
  • (6) size 9/10 wigs
  • (5) size 8/9 wigs
  • (4) size 7/8 wigs or
  • (3) size 6/7 wigs
The wigs are a random assortment of top quality wigs (not seconds), and they are all different. Each wig retails for at least $28 each.

See the wigs I got here in my Wig Play album on Flickr!

Iplehouse Cocori

Another new addition to my household is Iplehouse Cocori. This is her original outfit (minus the wig, which Rexy has temporarily stolen, and shoes). In the meantime, she is barefoot--and she stands so well--and is wearing a platinum wig from Kemper. I think she's just gorgeous.

I'm not exactly sure when she was original released, but her dark resin has stayed remarkably even and warm. I think she's absolutely fabulous. I'm thinking she might want a refreshed face-up in the near future, but for now, I'll enjoy her as she is.

You can see more photos, including a few of our kitty Chanel getting to know her, too, on Flickr.

Hooray--she's here, she's here! Meet Iplehouse nYID Rexy. She's a large bust BJD in special real skin, and has the face-up option C from the company.

I'm having a bit of a hard time finding clothing for her curvy body, but I'm sure I'll be able to find some things that fit--when I pick up some stretchy items.

You can see more photos of her on Flickr.

Guess who's coming to live with me?

It's an Iplehouse nYID Rexy! Real Skin, large bust, with Iplehouse's C Style makeup. I'm so excited! I posted a WTB post on the DoA marketplace yesterday, and got a reply within hours. I'm thrilled!

Chloe has found a new wig--it's from Fierce, a Precarious doll from the 2012 Tonner Doll collection.

In addition to being able to share wigs, she can also fit into Tonner's Antoinette clothing. She's wearing the outfit from Dramatic here.

See more photos on Flickr.

Update on my collection...

Iplehouse EID Yur
 I'm branching out, slowly but surely. I have an Iplehouse Yur EID on the way to me as of today, to be a big sister to Amy.

Iplehouse YID Rexy

On my wish list, I've since added YID Rexy, who is just lovely. I'm not quite sure between Rexy and Audrey--I love them both. I'm particularly smitten with the Real Skin color.

Feeple 70 Chloe

I'd also love to add Feeple or Minifee Mirwen or Chloe to my collection. I have my eye out for both of those girls.

Minifee Mirwen
I'm due for some additional photos, as my little Fairy of Fairytales tan Rabbit Goon and the new head Cheshire Goon have arrived. I'll try to take some today, after we're done with our cleaning frenzy at home.

Spring Fling Kisha

Spring Fling Kisha
Peak's Woods has a new sneak peek on the website for April. It looks like the doll is called Spring Fling, and it looks like Kisha on the AB Femme body.

I'll keep you updated when more information is released.
