MAKIE Unboxing/Faceup

5 May

So a week or so ago I finished up and posted the Unboxing and Faceup video for my Makie doll Goblyn.
What also happened is that the company that makes Makies saw and loved the video! They were nice enough to send me a discount code to share with my YouTube viewers, and I thought I would plug it over here as well. Untill the end of the month, you can get 10% off your first Makie purchase. Just use the code PIXIEBLOSSOM at checkout!

Goblyns Faceup!

11 Apr

GoblynFaceup04

Sooo I got Goblyns faceup done! This is the first time I have ever attempted something like this, so although its not 100% perfect, Im pretty darn happy with how she turned out.
The colours smudged a little more then Id like, and its not quite as symetrical as I would like. BUT I think it turned out pretty awsome for a first attempt and its given her sooo much personality!

I always knew I wanted to give her freckles. I wanted kind of the feel of a freckled redhead, but as a goblin instead of a human.
I also always knew that I wanted her eyebrows to match her hair, which is why I requested that her eyebrows be left blank when I ordered her.
Shes also looking a lot more green now that theres some shading and contouring on her face!

Aaand shes modeling the second dress I ordered with her, which I think suits her a lot more then the other one. I like the the dark colours on her and the gothic lolita kind of feel.
Someday Ill get her some actual gothic lolita outfits, and I really do want a really big thick pink mohair wig for her too!

Im in love with Makie so much. I really think Makie may end up becomming my BJD of choice ^____^

Meet Goblyn, my Makie!

OMG you guys, my Makie arrived and it is beyond totally awsome!!!
It was a whole lot faster then I thought it would be too, which is pretty cool. It was just over a week from ordering that I recieved the shipping confirmation, and I was over the moon estatic.  Two days later….. THERE SHE WAS. Talk about fast shipping! Although, my anticipation was through the roof for her, so it felt much, much longer. 😀

I have a video of her unboxing in the works to share with you, but in the meantime these are some of the first photos I have taken of her. And Iv taken a LOT of photos because shes so flipping amazing that I just cant resist!!
You cant notice how nice and green her skin colour is in most of these photos as much as I would like, and thats largely to do with the fact that her colouring is very, VERY pale. I expected it to be a smidge darker then this, but its quite nice. When I do a faceup on her it will look darker and greener 🙂

This is the best, most high quality and amazing doll, I have yet purchased. And yes, I can totally see myself getting more in the future 😀
She is of course my first ever BJD and….oooohhhhh my, I am in love. The way she moves and poses is so fluid and maleable. Compaired to the rest of my dolls, shes practically real!
She feels quite light, but also sturdy. Her texture is rough from the 3D printing process, and she almost feels as though she is made from wood.

The more I look at pictures of Makies, the more I really really love them. When I first saw them I thought they looked a little odd and slightly eerie, but now Im so used to how they look.
They feel like they have a lot more character and personality then any other doll out there and I love that.
I am of course going to be doing a faceup on her! I specifically requested that her eyebrows be left blank because I want to paint her eyebrows myself. It will be the first faceup I have ever attempted…. so wish me luck! Ill be doing that early this comming week sometime.

Altogether I could not be happier with her. Shes absolutly darling, and clearly the jewel in my collection ATM.
I cant wait to buy all sorts of awsome outfits for her, and accessories, and wigs, and and and…..oh my. I am hooked. 🙂
Goblyn is simply WAY too cute for my own good!

Special Old Toys Video

1 Apr

Since Im trying my hardest (and boy, is it hard!) to hold off on buying any new dolls untill my Makie arrives, heres a video to fill my blog out a little bit in the interm.
This video is about my oldest, most sentimental toys. Iv talked about D before, but here are two others! Oh, and a Kinder Egg!

 

MAKIE IS COMMING?

24 Mar

Soooo late last night I took a plunge I have been thinking about for a while now.
If you havent heard about Makies, they are super cool. They are BJDs that are totally custom made to your specifications. You use the creator program to design all of the facial structures for your doll, pick out skin colour, eye colour, hair, clothes, ect, and then they are 3D printed. The exact doll you just designed becomes real! Iv seen a few posts about them before and Iv been intrigued and curious to get one myself for a while now. But this was the post that really sinched the desicion for me, and last night I finally ordered my very own Makie.

Goblyn

This is my Makie that I designed as she looks in the Makie creator. Her name is Goblyn, and I ordered her with the soon to be discontinued pale green “pistachio” skin colour. I cant tell you how super excited I am to see how she turns out!!

Makies take about two weeks as they are all made to order, so itll be a liiiitle bit of waiting untill I get to see her in the flesh (in the plastic?)
I ordered her with a very minimal faceup, and will probably be trying my hand at doing some of my own painting on her as well. Shes not just my first Makie doll, but also the very first BJD to my collection, so you can imagine how over the moon impatient I am with excitment!!!

She was pretty darn expensive though, so Ill probably be holding off on buying any new dolls for a while untill Iv paid her off lol.
Dont worry, Ill get Jane Boolittle soon enough!
