Incoming new doll!!!

I ordered a Luna from Nyxypixie last year as my Christmas present. The doll is finally on its way!

I also ordered a second one for the STLBJD con, but we had to cancel our spring event. Fortunately, we still plan to have our annual Nightmare B4 Xmas party in November.

Luna is a bat!!! I am going to have to choose between the meyallic dark violet or the metallic brown.

Here's a picture of the dark and light violet colors. I got it from Nyxyscreations on Tumblr:


I'm so excited!

Twas the Nightmare before Xmas...

Twas the nightmare before Christmas
and all through the dollhouse
All the creatures were stirring...

The St. Louis BJD Convention is hosting the second annual Nightmare Before Christmas Party on November 16th!
Our location is the Overland Baptist Church Educational Building.
The event is from 7-10pm.

What to bring:
Your doll(s), in their Christmas, Halloween, Hanukkah, or other end-of-year Holiday attire.
Snacks to share. You could dig through the old family recipe book and bring a special Holiday treat! We will have a power strip to plug in a bubbling cauldron (er, crock pot) of dangerously delectable delicacies. Perhaps you have a favorite cookie you would love to share?
Your camera, because the displays are going to be very festive!
A Gift to share! Bring a wrapped gift for a gift-exchange. Doll items make awesome presents, but if you wish to give something else that is delightful, that’s ok, too! Value: $15-20.
If you have swap or sale items, you may feel free to bring them. We will have an area set aside for swaps/sales!

What to expect:
We will have some nibbles and our infamous Tea Buffet of warm beverages. (This year: Cider and Hot Chocolate will also be offered!)

The local Monster High is sponsoring this year’s event! Monster High dolls (and BJDs dressed to match) are welcomed with open claws, particularly at the actual Monster High School playset, which will be decorated for the holidays. Which Holidays? You’ll have to step inside to see…

Scary Ghost Stories and Tales of the Glories of Christmasses long long ago…
With the event in the evening, we have a perfect opportunity to play with lighting for our displays! Be prepared to take advantage of unusual lighting angles in our photo area.
This year’s Holiday display will be a living room set up appropriate for Christmas Eve/Morning with your doll family. We are also planning a table with candles and a miniature Menorah for Hanukkah night displays, too!

This year, our crafting project is working in miniature to create a doll-sized Gingerbread House. (Not a doll house in gingerbread.) We will have icing and graham crackers to construct your miniature fully edible house. Please feel free to bring miniature candies and edible decorations to decorate our miniature mansions. Of course, if you prefer to make a Gingerbread Haunted House, that’s also a real possibility…
If you wish to create your miniature in advance, we will have a great spot to display it. Prizes will be awarded to the most creative and most beautiful, as well as other categories yet to be announced. The only rule: It must be doll-scale, and it must be fully edible.

For more info, you can visit our facebook page, or our Website.

Ginger!

My fellow playmates,

Did you know that the St. Louis BJD Convention has a special souvenir doll?
We have extended the pre-order period to the end of August!!!

Judy Porter has created a special LE 10 doll named "Ginger".
Mary West has designed and created a charming pirate outfit for the full-set.

Ginger is an "angel" doll (non gendered). You can choose whether your Ginger Full-Set is the "girl" pirate or "boy" pirate outfit.

Even if you're not able to make it to the con, you can purchase a supporting membership which makes you eligible to purchase the doll!!

Though, I would be remiss if I didn't remind everyone that the two-day membership rate to the con in November is still only $30 for a few more weeks!

Ginger has the cutest little smirk.

Something fun!

I traded with Silverbeam to get a special grail doll at the St. Louis BJD convention.

I have Octoboy!!

We had a Dolly Spa Day over the weekend and I managed to get him some color.

Octo Boy

I also got the official convention doll, an Impling. She's been given a make-over too, but I haven't gotten any pics of her yet. She's now a kind of purplish-red.

Just had to show off my new pretty, though!

Can't resist...

Played with the littles in the yard today, because there are mushrooms!
At the end of the photo shoot, I got the bird's nest from the porch and set it in the tree out front.

This is what happens when you have such cute natural props... and a RealPuki.

Bird's Nest

Her hat is actually a balloon that I cut to try to make a wig-cap for her. Turns out that it made a cute cap on its own...

Spring!

In addition to the Easter photo story, I also took some lovely spring shots of my little critters in the back yard!

There are hundreds of tiny white flowers in my back yard right now, so I thought I'd get some pictures with the littles!
