Duffy, the Disney Bear

Yesterday I decided to have some post-Christmas fun, I dressed my Duffy the Disney Bear in his Mickey Mouse Club outfit.

I really wish I lived much closer to the Disney parks. In Tokyo, I was only an hour or so away. 

From Duffy and me, we hope you have a very happy and safe New Year.

Merry Christmas

I opened up my 10 Year Anniversary Little Pullip, Princess Rosalind. In her festive dress, she blends with the holiday decorations.

Here she is with Licca, for size comparison.

Merry Christmas and Happy Holidays to all of you.

Very Licca

When we traveled to New York for Thanksgiving, Licca wore her new Very Licca Trench Coat outfit.

The outfit consists of navy blue tights. a navy blue mock turtle neck, a green plaid skirt, brown boots, and the awesome trench coat.

The secret to getting the coat on smoothly was to use tiny rubber bands to hold the shirt sleeves in place. Otherwise the sleeves got all bunched up and the arms couldn't move.

It is a very metropolitan and grown up look for little Licca.

My First Doll Show

Today I went to the Eastern National Antique to Modern Doll Show, also commonly called the Gaithersburg Doll Show. This was my first time attending a doll show (outside of the dealer's room at convention).

I was happy to run into people I know and found 3 dolls that I wanted. I decided to be good and only came home with two of them.

I am excited to be the new owner of a Virga Lollipop Doll with orchid lavender hair.

My other purchase is Beauty Secrets Christie. She has been on my want list for quite a few years and I am glad to finally have her.

L.A. Girl Fashionista

LA Girl Fashionista, with her half-shaved punk hair-do was a must have for me. 

Unfortunately, her outfit is rather bland, compared to her hair-do.

So I decided to find an outfit that brings out the pink in her hair and evokes the 80s. This Barbie Fashion Pack seems to do that.

Here she is, wearing both shirts and the pink bag from the Fashion Pack. She really pops in it.

The only problem is that the two shirts are difficult to stack on her. In the photo below she is now wearing the jean skirt from the pack.

Just the stripey shirt.

Just the Unicorn shirt.

And now with the jean shorts.

Which is your favorite combination?

On Black Friday, we ventured into New York City to see Kinky Boots on Broadway.

Licca went too!

The show was wonderful! If you can, go and see it.

Happy Thanksgiving

Thanksgiving is this week. And while I don't decorate much for Thanksgiving, some of the dolls decided they wanted to pose with the cornucopia.

Clockwise: Pilgrim Barbie, a souvenir Mohawk doll by Mrs. Eliza, Amy (a friend of Holly Hobbie), April (a craft class doll from the 2013 UFDC convention), Licca, and City Shine Barbie - Bronze.

Together they represent the 1970s to today, with a Pilgrim, a Native American, a prairie girl, an Asian American, a newcomer to the U.S. (Licca), and a modern African American.

They are all thankful to be part of my collection, and I am thankful for them.
