A long time ago, I saw a wonderful BJD for sale on Ebay, but unfortunately she was withdrawn from sale as her owner changed her mind - I am not surprised!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!
