I like Maggie's wig too! And the photos of Comet in the tree.
You must've been so excited to find Assa after looking for her for that long!

I’ve collected a few things over the years and it’s always such a thrill when you find something you’ve been hunting for.

Thank you!

Your story about Assa reminds me that I first ventured into the World of Pullip, it seemed that Assa was the grail doll for many collectors and fans on the forums. She was out of production, but people were always talking about her and looking for her.
Thanks! I try to switch up poses, I spent like two years doing the same poses over and over and when I got back into the hobby I decided I would try new things LOL
At the time I joined the hobby (2009) I saw her on PS and instantly fell in love. I got mini Assa for Christmas that year, which only made me want her more! Now I'm even looking for a second one LOL

And I agree Butler is very underrated.
Thank you! I bought it at a convention smile
And he is! LOL

Thank you! Comet is always a fun one to take photos of, she's my bubbly space kid so I get to experiment a lot with poses and clothing options for her Heart 2
I was! I got her from a friend of mine. She knew I wanted her and bought her, played with her for a few months before deciding she didn't really click and contacted me about buying her right away. LOL

21, 22, 23, 24!!
Piper (Zuora) was another grail of mine, I wanted her for sooooo long. Found her from the same seller that sold Rockett, but someone outbid me at the very last minute. But, they didn't pay, so she was posted again and I made sure not to miss out on her again!!! I'm so happy I was given a second chance at getting her, because she is by far one of my favorite stock dolls they ever made. She came to me June 28, 2017 Heart 2
Atlus, aka Kaxel (Sol) was also from the same seller, and dirt cheap. I've always loved the darker skinned dolls and he's been a character of mine for years and years, so I snagged him. He did have a rather tragic fall last year, landed face first on brick and chipped his nose, so that's why the tip is a bit discolored, the pastel I used on it got darker over time somehow. But anyway, he joined the clan July 7th, 2017.
Apollo (MJ) was another impulse buy, he was (and still probably is) super cheap on JPGroove and I love his stock, so I figured if I didn't like him, at least I had that. But, surprisingly I love this boy! He's super underrated. All I did was rewig him and I think he looks so good now! He came to me July 11, 2017 (Idk how I was so loaded that I was buying dolls all the time, I'd love to have that kind of money now LOL ) Also, I get questions about his wig a lot, I found it on ebay!
Last but not least, Daisy (Frara). Frara was never really a doll that interested me. She was really basic and not really my aesthetic, nor did I have a character that suited her. But, I found her really really cheap on ebay with this adorable dusty pink wig and figured she'd be the perfect fit for the daughter of my god of Discord (who you'll see soon-ish, his name is Nox). This little drama queen came along August 20, 2017.

Wow! That was how I got my Peter Pan, only she went around THREE times! Gotta love it when you score a great eBay deal.
I should've kept track of the dates all my crew arrived. I never did, except for Sunsette. Nice portraits... I think I like the last one best. Frara's very cute. It's funny how sometimes you end up with a doll you never thought you'd be interested in, and really liking them. And who can resist when they're "really really cheap"! LOL

It's super amazing how things happen like that!
I haven't really kept track since my first 4 or 5, most of them I just check Flickr for LOL I almost always take/post a photo of them as soon as they arrive! And totally! I have a bunch of dolls now that I never expected to love when I first started collecting Heart 2

I know, right? Aren't we supposed to be making more money with each passing year?  LOL

I love love love your wonderful outdoor photos of your dolls! You choose wonderful settings that complement each figure's charm and cuteness.
They're not dolls, they're action figures!

Thank you! Its actually all just a few spots in my front yard that I rotate, I try to mix it up though LOL  I used to take photos in the back yard as well, but it's become a bit overgrown outside of our horse's pasture Sweatdrop

Sam (Rot Chan) was one of my few grail Dals, I found her NIB on Mandarake and snatched her up as quickly as I could. She arrived September 8, 2017 LOL
Blossom (Cinnamoroll v1) was one of my other grail Dals, I also found her on Mandarake. She was missing her shoes and something else I can't remember. She came October 5, 2017. She only wears Sanrio themed clothes! LOL
Melanie (Mocha MIO) was just a MIO kit from PS, I hadn't done a custom in years but I thought I'd give it a shot. She was finally a complete doll on November 3, 2017. Her faceup has since been redone, as I've gotten way better and she deserved a revamp. She also recently got a Made to Move Barbie body!
Vera (Steampunk Cheshire) was a birthday gift from my parents, I got her November 18, 2017. Heart 2

More lovely outdoor photos!

And your Vera! Wow! What a stunner! The middle shot, with the side-eye glance, is just superb!

It is a nice setting. Melanie (again...I think we all love her on that body) is lovely. You did a great job with her faceup. I like the 2nd last pic -- Vera's ex-pression is really cute. As is her outfit.

Thanks!!! I've been doing more faceup work and I think I've finally got my style down. Vera's outfit is Zuora's top and boots, and a skirt I got from a friend, not sure what it's from though Sweatdrop LOL

I'll be repeating myself, but I just love the styles you create for your characters. Each one has their individual style, but they're still coherent as a group!
