Poor quality Vinter Arden.

Hair all kinked and messy (when it should be smooth and sleek with curls), and crooked buttons on her dress. It’s so obvious, isn’t it?

I have emailed Junie Moon for a replacement… Hoping to get an answer right after their Golden Week holiday.

Dolls overtaking my shelf! Newly adopted Cloud 9 Bowl on the very left. Got her pre-owned from a lovely lady on the WPWD forum.

Lila in a new blue dress! I now add lace to most of my new dresses and skirts.

I found this lovely Fairy Tail toy with my old G1 My Little Pony collection. It’s not MLP, but was released around the same time by Hasbro. It’s only two years younger than I am. I’m lucky to have one, as they’re quite rare, from what I’ve read. I washed its hair and now it’s in top condition. I also still have the original hairbrush. :) 

Can’t really decide on this girl’s name. I’m leaning towards Viola although I thought Violet would be it.
Her hair was all kinked when she arrived. It was in bad shape. I had to straighten it. But I haven’t had time to make her any clothes!
What they said about her is true. A LOT fell out when I was washing, combing and straightening it. But I can’t say that hers is softer than my other Blythes’ hair. I guess I got all the dolls with soft hair then!

Belle in a dress I made. The bodice is too big. I altered the pattern but failed and it ended up too loose. Still proud of myself though! I’m still learning to sew.
