Barbie rescues and home-cooked fast food...

Hey guys...
I've been meaning to share with you these lovely ladies
I have purchased from a locally-hosted Facebook doll group more than a month now.
So when I received my package,
I gave them some good soapy bath
and a good loving scrub.

Not so sudsy swim, eh?

The girls got a little shy with the skinny bathing so I threw in some cloth...
If I'm not mistaken, they were also rescued by my seller
from yard sales.

Most were recent Mattel releases but I got lucky to get a few from the 90s,
which was great because I will need Mom ad Auntie characters
when I finally get the time to make stories.

Can you spot the 90s releases there?
And for the more recent ladies, I will be repainting them with less makeup hopefully soon.
One of them actually, I will be revamping for a dear friend.
Actually, this one looks like her!

She'll be a doll version of my friend,
complete with the new short bob and a sartorial style that my friend used to sport a lot
back when we were in the corporate scene.

From this (batch of) purchase, I missed out on one I really want - a Kira.. 
But just a few hours ago, I scored one (actually a Miko)
and I was the happiest kid that it made me remember about this pending post about these ladies.

So, that's it for me this weekend, ladies..
And of course, a little home cooking for my hubby's simple birthday celebration.
Nom nom...

Prepared hubby's fave - burger and fries

How about you?
How did you spend the weekend?

Would love to hear from you and chat..

Hi guys...

I am so glad to share with you a new blog that is all about dolls,
local doll events, and features doll collectors and designers alike 
based in here in the Philippines.
Although I am based in PH, I may be too busy to report about
the local doll scene so when the news broke out, I was just so happy!

Despite its infancy (it only went live days ago), I appreciate the dedication that the kids have
in creating readily available content for this wonderful blog.

There are also artist and designer features that will
introduce you to what the Philippine doll fashion industry
can offer!

Please enjoy, hang around the blog and you just might discover some lovely things.

Fashionistas in Skinny Jeans

Hey, dollies!
Hope everything is awesome over at your side of the world...
Mine is the usual, but one thing's for sure,
I missed my Fashionistas so much I dedicated my latest creations just for them!

I these thought fun, happy girls need some new outfits so I opted for year-round pieces
that they can comfortably wear and basically mix and match when necessary.

So here goes some photos I took.

I made some really tight (and sexy) darkwash skinny jeans as these girls love to have some GNO in between their busy days...
Bree here pairs the skinny jeans with her sparkly loose tank top that she likes to dress up or down depending on the event she goes to. 

Next up, Cece.
Cece here loves her animal-print cami top because it's cute and a bit flirty.
And of course, our lovely Tamica.
Tamica here puts on a basic gray tee as she's on her way to do some errands.
I must say, the skinny jeans which is one of my favorite wardrobe staples, when paired with the right top, can make the outfit perfect for the right occasion!

What do you think?
Here are some more photos.

And, oh, we got a new cutie to join the atelier, too.
Meet, Champo.
CeCe and Champo who's looking away from the camera... Hmmm why, Champo?
 Champo likes to hang out with the girls when they come bust me in my busy workday
but I'm not complaining.
Just like Champo, I love hanging out with these ladies.


So for now, since it's the weekend, I'd say let's enjoy and savor every precious moment cuddling with our favorite one, shall we?

Til next time, loves!
