They're here! Part II

Delilah:  Hi Lilly!  Welcome to our dolly's world!  It feels so great to have a sister! I'm so happy!

Lilly:  Well, I'm glad to be here.  There's so many different kinds of dolls here.  This is nice.  I feel so special.  I'm glad Mom bought me otherwise there's no telling where I would've ended up.  I like this outfit!  All I need now are some earrings and I'll be straight!!

Delilah:  I'm sure Mom will make some to go with your outfit.  I'm glad that our pictures were finally taken and added to this blogger.  We look great!

Ari:  Well, there's some pictures of me too!  Just hanging out with my BFF!  I hope Mom gets some new wigs and changes me up a bit.

BiJou:  I'm sure she will.  You might want to try some of the Ello's wigs though.  They fit Delilah's head so maybe they'll fit yours too.


Me:  In the meantime, here's some more photos of my latest additions. 

Diane Evans

She's quite a looker!

And so photogenic too!


She really does resembled her half sister Friday Foster!


Friday Foster


BiJou and Arizona (aka Ari)

She's a cutie pie! Love those eyes!


She's very photogenic!


BFF!

Well, that's all for now.  Hopefully by this weekend I'll have taken more pictures, especially after I've changed all their outfits.  Nighty nite!

Hmmm, bummer!

Delilah:  I'm tired of just sitting here.  I thought Mom was taking our pictures.

Lily:  She did take our pictures, remember?

Delilah:  Yeah, I remember - but I thought we were getting a photo shoot. I want to show off.

Lily:  Well, I heard Mom mumbling something about not finding her USB cord on her camera.   She did take a few pictures, but she needs that plug.

Me:  (sotto voice) Lily fitted right in and when she arrived and met her twin sister Delilah, it was such a shock!  As you can tell, they fit in beautifully.  Now where the heck did I put that cord?  Argh!  So frustrating!

Arizona:  Mom did take a few of pictures.  We have to help her find that cord?  BiJou, do you remember seeing where Mom last had it?

BiJou:  Ah, no.  I was in the closet for heavens sake!  I don't know where anything is!

Arizona:  Oh pooh!  I was hoping you might know.  sigh...  Maybe she'll find it if we help her look for it.

Delilah:  Oooh, that sounds like a plan.  This way if we look for  it, Mom can post our pictures here on this blog.  Okay, so here's the plan - as soon as Mom goes to sleep we'll look for the cord.  Alright?

Lily, BiJou, Arizona and the Ellowynes:  OK (together) we'll help to find the cord too! 

Alina:  I definitely need a photo shoot especially since we all got new outfits.  I love this outfit I'm wearing.

Lily:  I like my outfit too!  I've worn two new outfits already.  I especially love this outfit - it fits me to a "t".

Delilah:  Mom got some more outfits in the mail this evening.  She looked so happy going thru the items.  I think she said they were for the guys!!

Lily:  Guys?  There's guys?  Guys for us?

Delilah:  Ah, no.  They already have girlfriends and I don't think you want to mess around with them.  Besides, I heard they have guns.

Lily:  Guns?!!!  Are they planning on shooting us?  I'm sorry, I don't want anybody else's man!  I don't play that!

Delilah:  (laughing) No silly!  Lara and Lana Croft carry guns but not to shoot us with.  At least I hope not!

Brianna:  No, the guns are part of their outfits.  Those ladies are from the video game and movie Tomb Raider.  The guns are their props.

Lily:  Ooooh.

Delilah:  Uh oh... Mom looks upset.  Hey ladies, we've got to help Mom find that USB cord.  So, we'll look tonight after she goes to sleep.  OK?

(everyone else replies at the same time)  ok.  We promise.

Wow! I must love October!

As I peruse my blog, I noticed that I posted here 16 times!  That's a record for me!  LOL!  Well, I guess cause there's been alot of activity with new dolls coming in and me making time to post pictures of them.  I plan on taking more photos of them after they've all arrived ~ somthing more like a group photo.  Kind of helps me keep track of how many new and old dolls I have.

So far, I've kept my count of ten Ellowyne's!!  Even though I have been tempted as alot of people are selling older edition dolls so they can buy the newer ones.  Here's my group shot of Ellowyne....


And here's some pictures of the newest Ellowyne's and Prudence that Wilde Imagination is currently listing....


This is Essential Prudence Three, Wigged Out, $110
She's such a comical gal...I'm not feelin her face up.  But I do love the new wig she's wearin!


up close



Here she is in the white wig.  I am DEFINITELY not liking this wig AT ALL!!
I think it's the expression on her face, that I don't like.  Well, I wouldn't have bought this gal anyway!  If I bought this doll AND IT WOULD HAVE TO BE A REALLY BIG IF, I'd definitely have to let my favorite friend, Bev from enchantted, give this gal a partial repaint.  She definitely needs a new look~

Here's some of the dolls, WI is currently selling.  These are all the new dolls!  Keep it coming!!


Check on Me, $149

up close


Positively Negative, $155
This doll is gorgeous!!  I could see me buying this gal!  Her outfit is so totally different and looks stunning on her!! (I love casual outfits on these dolls)

up close....sigh.  I love her face paint!!  I'm a stickler for red haired dolls anyway and I'm so loving this gal!!  Guess this means it's time for me to re-dress my current dolls and do another photo shoot!!  Especially since I just received about nine more outfits from my FAVORITE dolly fashionista MAGGIE & KATE!!

Time for me to get some sleep, it's 5:14 am here in the boogie down Bronx!!

Lata!




Lilly has arrived!!

Lilly has arrived!!  Woo hoo!  Who is Lilly?  Why Lilly is Delilah's twin sister!  Just that Lily has blue eyes and Delilah has brown.  And they're changeable.  I will post pics of her later on this weekend.  Still waiting for Diane and Paris.  Can't wait til they come too!!  All for now.

Evangeline Ghastly

As if I don't have enough dolls!!  I was checking out Wilde Imagination (you know they're having a sale and sent me an email)!! Well I bit and went to the website and this is what I saw!

Wilted Irish Rose, Vinyl, 17", $190


Wilted, close-up
I'm really liking this doll and am so TEMPTED to buy her!

Just Talking

Brianna:  Hey! Where'd everybody go?


Brittany:  I think they're in the bag.


Brianna:  Why?  Are they all in the bag?  Where is the bag?  MOM!!!!


Me:  Brianna!  Shhh!  Calm down.  Where's the emergency?


Brianna:  Huh?  Emergency?  Wha!


Me:  You were yelling out my name like there was a fire.  What is going on with you?


Brianna:  Where's Lara & Lana, RayChelle, Jacqueline, Friday and the rest of them?


Me:  Didn't Brittany tell you?  They're in the bag in the closet.  I was getting them ready for the next dolly outing.


Brianna:  Oh. (smiles sheepishly).


Me:  I had planned on taking everyone out this weekend, but I forgot I need to get ready to go back to work.  So, we're not going anywhere this Saturday.


Brittany:  Bummer.  Oh well.  At least they did have a lil photo shoot.  Hey Bri, did you say hello to the new doll?  Her name is Arizona.  Hi Arizona!  Welcome to our dolly home.


Arizona:   Hi, err what did you say your name was?


Brittany:  Oh, right.  It's Brittany.  (blushes)  I'll introduce you to everyone else.  We're all very friendly and love when new dolls come to live with us.

Brianna:  Hi Arizona!  You look a lil like BiJou.  Doesn't she Bri?

Arizona:  BiJou?  BiJou is here?!!

Brittany:  Yes, BiJou lives here.  Do you know her?

Arizona:  Yes!!  She's my BFF!  Where is she?  BiJOU ~ where are you?!!!

Me:  (Why are all these dollies in an uproar?)  Arizona, please calm down.  BiJou does live here and she in the bag with everyone else.  Maybe tomorrow I'll take her out so you both can talk.  OK?

Arizona:  OK.  (watches me get up and go into the closet) BiJOU!!!

BiJou:  Ari!! (they hug each other)  Ari, when did you get here?  How long have you been here?

Arizona:  I arrived on Tuesday evening.  Mom just took me out of the box last night.  I was getting lonely sitting over here by myself.  I didn't know you lived here.  But I'm so happy right now!

BiJou:  This is so great!  My BFF is here!  Did you meet everyone else?

Arizona:  No, just the Ellowyne's.  They're kind of nice.

Brianna:  Hey!  What do you mean "we're kind of nice"?  We are nice!!

Arizona:  Sorry, I wasn't trying to hurt your feelings.  You are nice and very friendly.  (turns to BiJou) Where are the other dolls?  Are they still in the bag?  From what I heard there's more dolls coming to live here.

BiJou:  yes, Friday's half sister Diane Evans is coming and Paris Williams, a new doll is coming as well.  But, I hear Delilah's twin sister is coming here too!!

From the Ellowynes':  gasp!!  Delilah has a twin?  Does she know?  Ooooh, Mom you have to get her out of the bag!

Me:  Shush now.  No Delilah doesn't know.  I'll take her out tomorrow after Lilly gets here.

Brianna:  Oh, what a pretty name..Lilly.  Delilah and Lilly.  Sounds quite nice.  (giggle)

Brittany:  Oooh I can't wait to see Delilah's face when she sees her sister!!

:D

Talented Artists

I have had the pleasure to "talk" to the talented lady who created the repainted dolls for steampunk that I talked about in a previous post.  Her name is Caren.  Her site is Heart and Soul Repaints by Caren.  This is a very talented young lady and she's so nice!!  She's in my EE board group (EE stands for Ellowyne's Ennui).  When I first started this blogger it was all about Ellowyne Wilde, but because I have other dolls it wasn't fair of me to always show off Ellowyne.  So, I changed the name and now show off all of my dolls!

Okay, back to Caren.  Anyway, I bought some outfits from her and she showed me some pics of some of the characters from the movie Twilight  (which I happen to be a fan of!!) that she repainted.  I know she won't mind if I show them off here!

Edward & Bella - the likeness is so uncanny.

Bella's close up

Jacob & Bella

Bella

I cannot wait til Breaking Dawn comes out!! Woo hoo!!   Ahem, back to what I was saying, Caren is a beautiful person who re-creates a newer doll that take on a whole new personality.  I'm going to have to start saving up for one of Caren's dolls!
Enjoy!

I'm going back to Caren's site so I can drool over her dolls!!  LOL!  Nitey nite!

Another New Doll

Me:  Yep, I've been perusing ebay again!!  And guess who I fell in love with?  Paris Williams!  Who's that?  Well, she's a 16" Madame Alexander doll and she's gorgeous!!  Here's her picture....

She has bendy wrists and is very poseable!

Here's another pose!

She and Jacqueline will be the best of friends!  (They both have blonde hair! LOL)

I guess I'll never stop looking at dolls, though I can't remember how I came across this lovely lady.  There are more like her as always.  Check these out!


Backstage Pass


This girl's got boxed braids with the black rubber bands on the end!!  You go girl!


Greed Paris Williams

Festiva Paris Williams


close - up

Now these pics are not mine.  I borrowed them from the sellers.  Just wanted to show off what this gal looks like.

I've already bidded on "Always a Lady".  Because this doll came out already, I don't think anyone will outbid me.  At least I hope they don't.  LOL!

Who's Diane Evans?

Me:  Who's Diane Evans?  Well, she's Friday Foster's half sister.  I was just perusing ebay as I usually do and came across her ~ the rest as they say is history!!  Here's her photo....

Diane Evans from the Ann Harper collection, by Robert Tonner
From what I understand, she has the Friday Foster sculpt, hence she is Friday's half sister. Here's another photo of her, a close-up


She does resemble Friday, just a little bit.  This doll runs for $135 but I've seen her for $20 less.  I have to send a message to the seller and ask him to hold her for me.  She will make a nice edition to my already collection of gals.  I already love her!!  So, you know who's getting a photo shoot when they get here!  LOL!

My dolly journal

Well, today is the first day of this lovely dolly journal.  This afternoon I took my neglected dolls out of their hiding places and redressed them and restyled their hair.  What a lot of work!! Whew!!  I had to redress twelve dolls!!  I had a plan of doing a photo shoot today, but after all the redressing and doing hair - I'm pooped!!  So, I've decided to wait until tomorrow.  Everyone looks so nice!!  Lana and Lara (aka the twins) are both looking gorgeous as always!!  I shall not post any pics this evening.  So, you'll have to wait.  I must send an email to my dolly fashionista so I can show her that her outfits fit other dolls as well.  Wait til you see them!!  I can hardly wait!  So, here they are.....

Will Turner:  Honey, what you're wearing compliments me so well.  I love how Mom always seems to match us up perfectly.

Lara:  How true!  I do love the outfit I'm wearing and can't wait for our photos to be taken.  It's been a very long time for us.  I will not ask why the long wait.  sigh...

Lana:  You know how Mom gets about us dolls.  Whenever a new one comes to live with us - we become the forgotten ones.  But deep down inside I know Mom still and always will love us.  Did you see her looking at our pictures in the albums she keeps?

Jeremy:  Yep, she was looking at them for a long time.  Funny how she didn't match us up until after she had redressed Will.  Maybe I can send her a message when she goes to sleep, that way our photo shoot will look fantastic!

Jacqueline:  Mom has a definite "eye" for colors!  She matched all of us with the perfect outfit!!  I can't wait for this photo shoot.  I think it's been about two years since our last shoot! 

Antoinette:  Well, at least she finally changed my top!!  The other sweater did not do me justice!  Mmm mmm, no way.  I like this color on me!  It makes my hair even more gorgeous than it already is!  (smiling to herself)

Delilah:  Oh boy!  Is she (talking about Antoinette) always like this?  I've never seen a doll so self-centered!!  Can you spare a thought for someone else?  Sheesh!!

RayChelle:  Delilah?  You're the newest gal aren't you?  Say hello to Antoinette.  Even with all the new ladies here, she still manages to think of only herself.  Delilah, welcome to our home.

Delilah:  (blushing) Why thank you RayChelle!!  It's nice to know that there are other different dolls than the EW's! 

Patience:  Excuse me?  Weren't you just sitting next to me?  I can't help it if we're so adorable that Mom fell in love with us.  (giggle)  It's not our fault ~ and no ~ I'm not as self-centered as red up there is!  Let me tell you a story.  A long time ago (I mean years!!) Mom use to collect and play with a doll named Barbie.  Now Barbie had ALOT OF FRIENDS!!  And because they were so easy to get, Mom had ALOT of them.

Lara:  How do you know all of this?  You weren't even here at the time.  Mom had a whole lot of dolls before we all came.  I remember Mom telling her friends that she would never collect the bigger dolls and look who's here now - taking over the place?  We are!!  You should be happy that Mom loves you best because she use to fall in love with newer dolls, buy them and then forget all about us!!  Or until the novelty of the new doll wore off.  Then the latest dolls would get forgotten and we would get played with.  I remember when I first came here - Mom was so IN LOVE WITH ME!!  Then she decided that I needed a boyfriend and then came Will.  It was love at first sight ~ we had our own story!!  Then Lana came to live with us (she's very stubborn) so it was a while before she got a boyfriend as well.

Jeremy:  That would be me.  Mine and Lana's story was full of fun and intrique.  I was trying to wear Lana down and eventually we became an item.  Remember sweetheart?

Lana:  Uh huh.  We were the favorite dolls for two years!!  Mom sold all of her Barbies', Fashion Royalty (of course I couldn't see where the royalty was at!), Tiny Kitty's, Flava, Kelly, Skippers, Janays'.  I'd say Mom had a total of 300 dolls that she sold or gave away, just so she could buy us.

Jacqueline:  Well, don't forget about us.  We came after Lara and Will.  It was the Esme's and Friday and me as well.  Then Russell came along and we were just having a good ole' time!!

Antoinette:  Excuse me?  I was here too! 

Jacqueline:  Oh my, she speaks!  (laughing) Sorry hon, the order was Barbie & company, Janay and friends, FR, Tiny Kitty, My Scene, Flava, Bratz.  After they were all sold and given away Lara and Will arrived first.  Then came Esme', Friday, me and Antoinette.  Then Nadirah and Camille showed up (they were a birthday present for Mom), they got alot of attention when they came!!  After a while Lana and then Jeremy arrived. 

Jeremy:  Yup, that sounds about right.  So, we were all here before the little youngun's arrived!!  They were supposed to be the friends for Antoinette.  Nadirah and Camille fit right in with no problem.  After the first Ellowyne arrived, I thought that she would be the last.....but nope that's not what happened!!

Brittany:  I came and Mom had so much fun with me!!  I have my OWN album!!  Then Brianna came and it started all over again.  Sometimes I think Mom loves Brianna more than all of us!

Me:  That is so not true!!  She's the first dark haired gal with a style all her own.   She was just irresistable - just like you were/are.  Everyone gets the same treatment.  I love all my dolls equally!!  It's just that the newer dolls always get their share of the spotlight.  Then everyone gets played together.  Hence the photo shoot scheduled for tomorrow.

Friday:  Hey listen up!  Mom's got a wonderful surprise for all lof us this coming holiday.  Shhh, it's a secret.  I know what it is!

Esme':  What is it?

Friday:  I'm not telling.  You should've been paying attention.  But don't worry, everyone here will be satisfied.  Okay back to the story....NEXT!!

Savannah:  I'm next.  I'm the 3rd gal in this series and certainly not the last.  We're all beloved dolls!!  Everyone has their own story when they arrived.  After me, came Patience, Solange', Alina, Wilhemina, Fatima, Eleanor and Indirah.  And surprisingly, Mom remembers everyone's name!!  Actually, Delilah is the last doll to come but then she won't really be the last because from what I saw today there's two more gals coming. 

Gasp!! From everyone:  How do you know?   Do you know who they are and when they're coming?

Delilah:  From what I understand it's a new doll from the WI collection.  Her name is Lizzette. Plus when Mom was on ebay she saw Friday's sister Diane.  So these two ladies will be coming to live with us very soon.

Friday:  Wait a minute.  I have a sister?  Who is she?  Her name is whoa ~ Diane?

I still thinking.....

At first I thought doing themes would be fun ~ but now I realized that it's alot of work!!  Plus, since I'm the only one putting up pics, that's why it's so hard!!  Well, I'll just have to think of something else to do to make this blogger more interesting and fun.  Hmm, maybe I could do a dolly journal.  Similar to my journal on the live journal website.  Sounds like a plan!  OK, I'm going to start working out the kinks!

Yay! Today is the 7th day! Yippee!

Wa hoo!  Whew!  Today is the 7th day of this theme Braided Updo's!  So, here's my last gal, enjoy her, she's alot of fun!  Her name is Wilhemina!!  Woo hoo!

Umm, she has a partial updo!









Of course, she's wearing an outfit by my favorite dolly designers Maggie & Kate!  Tomorrow, well, we'll try something different!
