Love, Ante

Ante sends you her love today, from an unusually rainy day in San Diego.

You can see a few additional photos on Flickr. I've been playing around with heart-shaped bokeh, and it's quite easy and fun. You should give it a try.

Here's a link to an easy tutorial--and I suggest trying hole punches for more shapes.

nYid Mari, dressed

Here is Mari again, all dressed. She's wearing clothing from Iplehouse.

She stands about 57cm in height, a little taller with her heel feet. I also ordered an extra set of hands for her--my friend Melissa has sort of convinced me those extra hands are awfully cool and convenient.

If you missed yesterday's post, this is Iplehouse Mari, ordered from the CDS (custom doll system). She's only available through there at this point. Originally, this head was sold as an Elemental Guardian on the SID body (slightly taller and less curvy). My girl is on a peach gold tone nYID body with a large bust (and there is one size larger, too). She has pierced ears, and I asked for make-up style C.

Deboxing Mari

She's here, she's here!

My custom doll system (CDS) has arrived from Iplehouse, and she's perfect! (The CDS system is available during the first few days of each month.) She has pierced ears, makeup style C from the original limited SID Elemental Guardian version, and mine is on a large bust peach gold nYID body.

You can see more photos on Flickr. I also ordered a long Sienna wig as well, which I think suits her perfectly.

Mari is on her way!

Ack! I received a shipping noticed from Iplehouse for my CDS order for YID Mari! She's in customs now--I just am so excited! The YID body is my favorite. I have been wanting to add Mari to my collection since she was released, but have just been able to do it recently.

I can't wait to share photos of her arrival with you. Hopefully by tomorrow or Friday!

Ante up!

It's Flower Garden, MiniFee Ante--my latest arrival. I have photos of her box opening on the Moe-Line body. She's really sweet, and I'm quite enamored with my first MiniFee.

I'd heard some lack of enthusiasm for her youthful face-sculpt on her rather curvy body, but the Loli outfit seems to really suit, I think. See more photos on Flickr!

Help Out Your Fellow Dolly Friend & Vote

In honor of a photo contest put on by Peak's Woods on Facebook, I decided to make a special outfit for my FOF Hucky.  The contest requires a person to take a picture with their doll, so I made sure Hucky's OOAK outfit matched mine.  We are both sporting pink dresses with white dots.  Can you also tell I did some bokeh work with my camera?

Now, I need your help!  If you are on Facebook, please "like" my photo on the Peak's Woods page.  Your help will be greatly appreciated and will actually help contribute to further MegannArt dolly clothing on new doll bodies.

Remember, go to this photo on Facebook to vote, and you have to "like" the photo itself, not a comment, feed, etc.

Support an artist!  Visit my website (MegannArt) for an Etsy shop, Twitter, Facebook (with occasional discounts), Pinterest page, and much more.  Plus, there is even a new pattern book out now that has some BJD patterns, called Dolly Bureau!
