Volks has started their Owner Registration program for SD owners in the US and I filled out my application on Friday and sent it in. It's all pretty exciting and I'm looking forward to getting my official "Membership Card" from Volks.

My Tadanobu (SD13) got to be featured on the site with my info since he's my only SD that was bought from a legit source. I didn't want to take the chance of getting my application rejected.

It's so cool seeing Tadanobu on the superdollfie.net website! He looks very cute if I don't say so myself.

I hope my membership card arrives before I go to Tokyo in November so I can take it with me on my trip.

I took these photos over a month ago after the fur wigs I ordered from kiri_moth arrived but I just got around to editing them recently. Kiriko makes great wigs and my dollfie boys enjoy wearing them a lot.

On with the Jenny show...

I love the retro style Jenny dolls & fashions Takara has been producing. A few other retro style Jenny dolls can be seen in my FDQ article, but here's some photos that didn't appear in FDQ.

More Jenny doll photos from the FDQ shoot I did. These are the rest of the "Dolli Loli" fashion pics I took. Next week I'll post the "High Fashion", "FRUiTSy Cutesy", "Street Wear", "Retro Style" and "Traditional Japanese" fashion pics. Jenny dolls are very versatile and Takara has been releasing a ton of great doll fashions in every style imaginable lately, but I have a soft spot for EGL style Jennys and fashions.

I got my issue of the new FDQ mag today and I was happy to see my Jenny article in it. shindig_pop did a great job on the layout because the article looks very spiffy! His Momoko article is also a fun read and makes me wish I had a Momoko doll myself. There's also nice articles on Super Dollfies, Pullips, Susie dolls, etc., etc., etc. Now if I could only get some kind of paying gig writing for doll mags on a regular basis. I don't care if I only made minimum wage doing it. It would be a dream job! If you happen to hear of any job openings with doll mags let me know.

I took about 50 photos for the article but naturally they couldn't use them all. They did use some of my favorites though which made me very happy! Now that the issue is out I can share the rest of the Jenny pics I took so get ready to be swamped with doll photos for awhile. I won't photo bomb you with them all at once. That would be cruel, so I'll just post some over the next week or so.

[Current Music |The Sausage Machine - Steve Gray]

It's been over a month since my last post here so I thought I'd write a brief update. I've been busy helping my brother with his wedding plans (he's getting married in August) and looking for work. I'm also planning a much needed vacation.

I had to stop in and check my friends list here because I was worried about my British friends, but I was happy to see that you all seem fine.

My dolls have been gathering dust, but I do have a photo article about Jenny dolls being published in the July 15th issue of Fashion Doll Quarterly along with rufusblueblog's article about Momoko dolls. If you're a Japanese doll fan you won't want to miss this issue of FDQ since it features Volks, Pullip and other Asian dolls along with Jenny & Momoko. If you're interested you can find out how to order an issue here:

[Current Music |Femme Fatale - Velvet Underground]

I'm going to take a little break from my dolly hobby journal and I just wanted to let people know if anyone happens to wonder where I am. I'll still be updating my dellaluna journal so I'm not disappearing offline completely. I just need to put my dollies on hold for a short time so I can get caught up on other parts of my life which I've neglected a bit.

You can still contact me by email (my email addy is on my websites) if you need to reach me, but I might be a bit slow responding. I'll try to still peak at my friends pages so I won't miss any of your lovely photos & art, but I may not have time to comment.

And with that I leave you with a pic of my slightly customized LM Solange who refused to become my EGL Blythe because she thinks she's an Italian horror film star from the 60s & 70s. Her heroes are Barbara Steele and Soledad Miranda...

First group pic of my SDs all together. Since their group nickname is "The Dreamers", I decided to try and somewhat mimic one of my favorite still shots from The Dreamers movie for fun. It's also the first time I've photographed Maki in her original wig.

Future of Blythe, Licca & Jenny? [May. 14th, 2005|02:56 pm]

Takara, Tomy agree to merge in 2006

Saturday, May 14, 2005 - Takara Co., Japan's No. 2 toy maker, and Tomy Co., the third-largest, said Friday they have agreed to merge March 1 next year.

Under the agreement, Tomy will be the surviving company, with Tomy President Kantaro Tomiyama staying on as president. Takara Chairman Keita Sato will act as vice president, the two companies said.

The merger ratio is set at 0.178 of a Tomy share for each Takara share.

The two toy makers and Index Corp., Takara's largest shareholder, agreed to set up a strategic joint venture on Sept. 1 in the runup to the planned merger.

The venture will serve as an agency for content and other businesses making use of characters and other assets held by the new company, and will also be engaged in advertising for the new company, they said.

The merger will create Japan's second-largest toy maker after Namco Bandai Holdings Inc., to be set up Sept. 29 this year by Bandai Co. and Namco Ltd.

Based on figures from the 2003 business year, Takara and Tomy's combined sales totaled 189.7 billion yen -- 107.2 billion yen from Takara and 82.5 billion yen from Tomy -- well short of Bandai and Namco's combined 435.7 billion yen.

The site still needs some work, but it's functioning. If any other BJD owners would like to exchange links with me please let me know. I'm still in the process of putting the links section together and if you have a site banner I'd be happy to exchange them with you! Text links are fine too.

If you have a moment to look at the site I'd appreciate the feedback!

I bought this groovy Paco Rabanne style dress & stocking set on ebay over a month ago, but I just got around to putting it on Maki today. It's a bit dangerous since it can easily scratch resin and you have to take it on & off with pliers, but I love it on her!

I'm determined to teach myself how to sew better this year. I'm starting off with easy projects made of felt that are fun to make. Over the weekend I made this little jumper shroom dress for Ethel B. and today I finally found some time to take her outside and snap some photos. Spring has really arrived and flowers are blooming everywhere. I love the weather right now!

Over the past few days my lj got a spring makeover. tertium_quid bought me flowers on the weekend and they found their way into my new journal design.

And here's a "Fashion Station" Shion (Jenny doll) with daisies looking like she belongs in the French countryside...


I've been feeling a bit misanthropic and self-conscious lately so I just privatized my previous lj entry. Que sera sera!

In other news, I can't stop listening to the new Marianne Faithfull CD. Nick Cave & PJ Harvey wrote a lot of the songs on it. The music is rather melancholy but oh so pretty.
