Bedtime with Saber Lily

Recently got several online orders of doll stuff, but the loveliest by far was this lingerie set from CoolCat. It’s extremely well made and very detailed. I couldn’t wait to put it on Saber Lily and see how it looked.
(I’m also testing out the “photo tent” that my friend gave me, so I’m still fiddling with what lighting works best. I soon realized that the tent is a bit small for my daughters so I’ll probably only use it for my figures. Bear with me >__<“)

I recently found some mini “spin pins” by Goody that are amazing for keeping long wigs in elegant buns but are very easy to put in and take out without damaging or tangling delicate wig fibres. I actually use the full sized ones for my own hair and really like them – I’m always looking for widgets & gadgets for my hair and it’s nice when I can share them with my daughters too! ^__~”

Well Saber Lily, dear, let’s take some beautiful photos that will make the boys have severe nosebleeds!

There’s something so very sexy about thigh-high stockings, garters and a pair of killer high-heels, isn’t there?

But Lily is not about to go to sleep with her long hair wrapped in a bun, so she’s going to let her hair down.

That’s much more relaxed and comfortable, isn’t it darling?

She’s all stretched out and she’s taken off her little skirt too.

Would you like to join her?

Sweet dreams!


Quick eye change for Yukiko

I’ve had to put Yukiko in a special doll case that I brought home from Tokyo because Charlie likes to try and attack the chiffon overlay on her dress. Naughty Charlie!

I took her out earlier today to re-adjust her base and decided it would be a good opportunity to change her eyes as well. Since her MSD-sized head is so small, only half-sphere eyes will fit or else they interfere with the S-hook inside her head. I also go to try out the silicone ear plugs I bought instead of Volks eye putty – it is a really nice improvement. The silicone is more tacky so it immediately “grabs” onto the plastic eyes making positioning easier, and then you press it down into place to give it a firm hold on the eyes. Yukiko is wearing the Volks Animetic eyes in F Type / Bright Green (WAKABA). The Volks website shows these as a dark emerald green, but they are much lighter and less intense. [Update: August 16, 2011: Volks has added a photo showing the eyes under different  light to better show the colour of these eyes]

I think she looks so much nicer with the animetic eyes! Since her head sculpt has such big eye sockets the regular eyes made her look bug-eyed. The new eyes also accentuate the anime-style face-up that Machiko gave her. All in all a great improvement!
