Skin tone comparison - tan, normal and blue grey

Tristan and Segi

A quick comparison shot of Peak's Woods new suntan skin tone (left) on Elf Tristan, and normal skin, on Segi.

Both are lovely, in my opinion--but I am a sucker for tan. Actually, I'm a sucker for Peak's Woods anything.

Plus, I'll add a quick shot of my latest arrival, too. This is Vampire Sir Tin, in the blue grey skin tone. I don't really "do" boys or vampires or fantasy skin colors, but I loved the color when I saw it in person. I think this doll is just gorgeous. This is one of his deboxing photos.

New peak's woods babies!

Enchanted Doll FLASH Sale

It looks like those fabulous Enchanted Doll resin eyes will be available in higher quantities in their Etsy shop for a limited time during a flash sale.  It will take place November 16-18, 2014.  It appears that it will end earlier in the day on November 18th, so make sure to get your purchases in fast before it's too late.  The flash sales are always great since there is a much larger in-stock inventory to choose from and they ship right away at a low cost. 

Check them out here at the Etsy shop.

Nanuri, floating in a dream

Nanuri in Floating Dream

This is Nanuri Chicline (Fairyland, normal skin, large bust, faceup by 16-Bit Face-ups), modeling a new outfit by Integrity Toys. It's an outfit for Poppy Parker Fashion Teen, a 16" doll, aptly called Floating Dream. I think its unique retro feel is quite cute, and I love the stitching on the bust.

I almost couldn't get the separate belt hooked--it's very snug--but I did manage it. There are earrings included with the outfit as well. I personally think gloves would complete the look, but I wouldn't bother putting them on, to be honest. Just too much hassle!
