Dalicious Round 1: Magic
When it comes to Princessa and magic, I don’t really have much choice, since I already made her proclivities known in this picture from a previous Dalicious contest
The base of this picture was a lightbox, which gives her a lovely under-lit spooky feel.  I used a black sheet of paper with a circle cut out to let the light through below her, but in early pictures the light washed out the candles (which I made with sculpey just for this shoot) so I slipped a white sheet of paper in between the black paper and the light box .

Annabelle (horror movie involving creepy doll) is coming to my local drive in.  Of course I want to load my car up with my entire doll collection.  I’ll use the eye levers on the Pullips to have them watch people as they walk by, and pose the other dolls to be looking out the window, holding tiny knives, etc.

Am I a bad person?

kbunny10 said: If someone didn't want to completely rehair a doll and they wanted to just put a wig on it, what size wig would an ever after high doll take? I know a monster high doll takes a 4-5 wig, but would ever after high take a 5-6 or a 6-7? I don't have wigs of either size laying around so I can't check. ^^; sorry.

Theoretically, you don’t need to have wigs in many sizes to check what size a doll takes.  The sizing is how many inches of circumference the head is around the general hairline (so, forehead to lower back of head and back again).  My bald EAH dolls come in at exactly 5.5 inches, so most 5-6 wigs should fit very well.

nataliefieldeah said: Hi! Sorry with all these questions but I was wondering, could you send me a dress or just the dress patterns of the backgrounder dress, you sowed me yesterday? I am also wondering what Acrylics do you use? I need to repaint some shoes but mie are to splongey.

I use Golden Fluid Acrylics.

Patterns for all background characters I’ve made can be bought through my etsy store.  Basic patterns (1 complete outfit) are $3 each, and mega packs, which include 2-3 complete outfits, are $6 each.  They’re already hella cheap, so no, I won’t send people individual pattern pieces.

cassiahills said: Can you make a part 2 to your steampunk/victorian collection? with a vest, tail coat, ladies dress with the big bums and lace, a top hat and possibly the female version of the top hat? That would be amazing.

Another victorian dress is on the list, so don’t worry about that :)

The hat though, will probably end up as part of a hat pack.  I’ve tried to include hat patterns a couple of times, but because of the big heads it would end up taking a huge part of the pattern, so I’m trying to get a couple of different hat styles together so people can use different dome/brim styles and have (hopefully) one pattern that will take care of most hat-pattern needs.

Very interesting Paypal policy update to which sellers of counterfeit BJDs should pay attention. The window for filing a SNAD Claim is now 180 days instead of 45.

If a buyer files a Significantly Not as Described (SNAD) Claim for an item they purchased from you, you will generally be required to accept the item back and refund the buyer the full purchase price plus original shipping costs. You will not receive a refund of your PayPal fees. Further, if you lose a SNAD Claim because we, in our sole discretion, reasonably believe the item you sold is counterfeit, you will be required to provide a full refund to the buyer and you will not receive the item back (it will be destroyed). PayPal Seller protection will not cover your liability.

Fuck yeah, paypal. :D

Um, NO?  Look at that terminology “You will be required to provide a full refund to the buyer and you will not receive the item back (it will be destroyed)” “in our sole discretion” without any kind of criteria of how someone has to prove something is counterfeit. 

I’m sure Paypal has hired a team of people to be able to accurately assess that something is a counterfeit via photos provided by the buyer, as the seller no longer has the item in their possession to use as evidence.  It will never turn into the same kind of scammer gold mine that people who claim items arrived damaged and send back bricks in a box or claim boxes arrived empty is currenty. /sarcasm

I would MUCH rather have better seller coverage, like “if you claim the item you received is damaged, counterfeit, or SNAD, you will have to send the item to a Paypal claims division, which will examine the evidence and process the refund before returning the item to the seller or destroying it if it is found to be counterfeit”

neophoia said: Quick question (sorry if it's an odd one), when you got the dolls to use for recolouring/dyeing did you buy new ones in the box or just the bodies? I'm in the process of trying to do a custom and I'm unsure which way would be the best to go with when deciding on getting the body.

Both.  It doesn’t really make a difference. 

I’m a one-per-doll collector, but sometimes I want a new doll’s outfit/clothes, so then that new doll becomes custom material.  If I don’t have one, then I buy a nude doll secondhand or a cheap new doll from a store.  If I have a choice, I usually try to find a wonky one :)
