A Venture into the Unknown

A long time ago, I saw a wonderful BJD for sale on Ebay, but unfortunately she was withdrawn from sale as her owner changed her mind - I am not surprised! She was really special and I have to say the nicest I have ever seen.   Every now and again I look on to see if another takes my eye and they very rarely do...until the other day when I saw a listing for one that immediately caught my eye.  She is a Blue Fairy Tiny Fairy May, MSD  sized which I learnt was 43cm tall - a similar size to my Sasha dolls.  She has been custom painted and I think she is gorgeous. It is going to be a steep learning curve though as I know nothing about these dolls and they are very different to most of my doll collection.

I know, I said no dolls this year...but sometimes rules are made to be broken!  

My pictures don't do her justice - yet....I have to get to know her first.  

These are her arrival photos.

Her seller kindly added some clothes for her to wear.  I just love her boots!

She looks rather bewildered here....

I found her a long sleeve top that fitted and added a sleeveless knitted jacket and scarf.

The jacket I was knitting last night - it wasn't intended to be for her, in fact it was to be a sweater, but I thought it might work, the other way round with the opening at the front with what she is wearing.    I have nothing else that will fit her!

Just trying a few more photos before I take her outside.

In between showers she has a look round the garden.

Takes time out under a tree.

Plus some more gratuitous shots. 

I have a long way to go before I am taking photos of her like those I have often admired of other BJDs but it is early days yet!


  1. She's adorable - congratulations on bringing her home!

    Love those boots to - they're just too cute! :)

    1. Thank you! This is quite a different experience for me in many ways. I did try the little Lati and Pukifee dolls, but didn't get on with them. I am a complete and utter novice! I don't even know where to start.

      Oh yes those boots are very cute indeed - I'd love a pair just like that!

  2. She is quite amazing! Good for you for breaking the rules and bringing her home :-)

    Your photos are terrific, by the way.



    1. I am not very good with rules! Thank you for your kind comments re my photos. I am having fun!

  3. How wonderful! There is something very special and alive about the larger bjds IMHO. :). I agree your photos are fabulous.

    1. Thanks :-) I am really enjoying her - she is very special.
