Tan Ceci & Aruna

So I broke down and put both a tan Ceci and tan Aruna on layaway with Fabric Friends & Dolls.

Iris is absolutely wonderful to work with – I was able to put the girls on a 5-month layaway! Wow!

Since the girls are both tan-skin, I opted to go for the brown wigs instead of the gold/blonde.

Ceci should be coming with beautiful green (Prasinous) eyes:

And Aruna should be coming with gorgeous gray-blue (Bice) eyes:

I’m so excited!!

I’m not sure I’ll be able to wait that long, but at least I know these 2 girls are coming home to me. <3

Hopefully it won’t take the full 5 months to pay them off! *fingers crossed*

The Hiding Kitty – MaskCat Dolls

A few weeks ago, a friend of mine linked me to a photostory on Den of Angels showing an SD-size doll receiving a doll of her own. When I first saw the story, I didn’t think a whole lot about it – it was cute as a photostory, but that was it at the time.

Over the next few weeks, my friend starts talking more and more about this newer company.. how the little dolls have bodies with SD10 proportions (which I absolutely love!), and how they can wear Lati Yellow/PKF/Blythe clothes.

I finally gave up and decided to find out more about these little dolls and what company is making them. (Gee, thanks Kiyono!)

After looking around on DoA and Facebook, I found the company: MaskCat Doll.

OMG! The special size dolls are so stinkin’ cute! At 21cm, they are a bit taller than PKF, and with the immature proportions, they can still wear some of the same clothes.

I’m absolutely head-over-heels for Ceci. Seriously, check out her adorableness!

And they are currently running a promotion for tan skin until July 16! The tan skin is a lovely color compared to the normal skin.. Check out Aruna in both skintones – it’s a great picture to show the body sculpt as well. <3

I actually just found out that they also offer a 2-part layaway on their website. Woot! That is really tempting – especially since they are offering their girls in tan skin for a limited time.

There are also 60cm girls available. I have heard rumors of a 60cm Ceci… and am secretly crossing my fingers. 😉

ChitownDollz Mitsuwa Meetup Collage

Thanks for coming!

While I usually update new posts on Mondays, I thought it would be nice to update a little early this week…

We had our ChitownDollz Mitsuwa meet yesterday, and we had a great turn out! A HUGE “Thank you!!” to everyone who came!

We had so many people and fantastic dolls on display. 😀

I was able to take photos of most of the dolls we had there, but I know I missed a few – especially an adorable MysticKid MSD girl. <3

We have our next Mitsuwa meet up scheduled for August 23. In the mean time, we will be at the Dairyland Summer Meet in Madison, and we may have a ChitownDollz meet at the Garfield Conservatory in Chicago.

Keep an eye out for more info, and can’t wait to see everyone soon!
