Last part of my Anteprima Doll post is supposed to be Caco in different outfit, but I got lazy and the sun is not cooperating much for natural lighting, plus I couldn’t find any dress that could fit chubby Caco.
I’ve been trying to sort my pictures for quite some time and was overwhelmed by the number of photos I have taken of my dolls and other stuff. I realized that my dolls have more fashionable clothing than I do yaaay!
Posting them here is one way of doing my inventory (aside from showing off he… he…he) and serves as a reminder for me. Sometimes I forget ever buying or owning certain dolls, or that I have bought new clothes, or shoes for my dolls. I am not a well organized person. Usually when I made purchases, I will just toss them inside my treasure chest when I reach home and forget about it the next day. I often tell myself, I will post my haul according to date I found them. But of course, I wasn’t able to. I’m not lazy, I just don’t have that much time after work. Now, my pictures got all mixed up. I need to double check if I already posted them or not. So, if anyone sees double posts here, umm… skip, LOL!
I do not know when I found these, but they are stuffed in one plastic bag which is is not even neatly packed, unnoticed and lying on the floor along with stuff toys. When I go to thrift stores, it has become a habit of mine “not to leave any stones unturned” or in this case, I made sure I have peeped inside all those plastics, boxes, baskets and bins before I leave. Of course if it’s sealed, I would ask the sales clerk to open it for me. If you break it, you pay for it.
This one comes with a doll inside, fully resealed with packaging tape so I wasn’t sure if the contents are same as what is pictured on the box (not a window box) quite heavy and I don’t hear any loose object juggling inside when I shook it. So I just trusted my instinct, I immediately paid for it and went off because there were a lot of addicts (thrift store addicts!) inside the store and I don’t want them ogling at my loot hmp!
This set is also from a thrift store. What has attracted me to buy the pack is not the Barbie outfits but the bell bottom pants & orange 3/4 sleeved top that looks like from the1970’s fashion and I like the 70’s trend.
The price? Bargain! I can’t tell coz I’m a seller too! ;-P
How lucky can anyone be? In one of my thriftstore round-up I found a handful of assorted doll accessories and clothes. It was tucked inside a pillowcase and tied with a rubber band and was just sitting at the lower part of the shelf. I got curious, why would they place a linen item in the toy section? So i took a peek and was surprised to see an assortment of colors inside! Most of the dress are new, specially the Takara Tomy’s (Jenny/Licca) outfits. The price? Very Cheap! I immediately paid at the counter and left so excited to fit them…on my dolls of course!
One more post after this and I’ll be on to my next find! Whew!
On to the fitting and picture taking!
This is a Volks doll from Japan, Barbie sized. She has 14 points of articulation, discolored hands (I’ve broken one thumb!) I bought her in an “Otaku!” event, nude with wig and 1 earing. I don’t really dig her facepaint, so she’s one of my candidate for a face-up, but she did turn out cute!
This post is getting longer and I want to cut it short (I get impatient when I don’t get the result I want, like the outcome of the pictures..etc..etc) anywayz these dolls waited long enough so here they are, the continuation.
DOROTHY: I’m so out of OZ! After this, I’ll head for the corporate world! I was from the 2007 Pink Label Edition, there are so many versions of me produced by Mattel, for the record, I don’t talk and my ruby shoes (why’d ever called it slipper?) does not light up.
SUMMER: Tickled Pink! I’m Summer Top Model, of course with a Model Muse body posed. I like this winter outfit, you may say “Summer in Winter.”
SUMMER: 2D loved my “steffie headmold.” We do not know who owns these outfit, it has no label, she found it along with the other dresses still in mint condition, unused (she could tell!), at bargain price and the quality is not the run-of-the-mill type! We’re lucky because she has the knack for finding good stuff!
AURORA: From Disneyland to the street of New York City to find our lost prince! I enjoyed being Sleeping Beauty Sparkle Eyes of 1996, but the new me excites MEEEE!!
MS DISNEY: Oh well, 2D calls me that because she couldn’t remember who I was! Cinderella or Sleeping Beauty?! Anyway at least I’m not wearing a long gown anymore because the air doesn’t circulate much with tons of petticoat & ruffles!
AURORA: Was called Sparkle Eyes because my pupils/iris are made of blue crystal studs! I guess that’s what you get for sleeping too much ha ha ha!
MS DAVID: Ok now why do I have to share the limelight with you? You were already featured in the earlier post weren’t you? I want my own solo picture please!
TERESA: If it wasn’t for me posing beside you, you would looked like a ghostly apparition! Aren’t you supposed to be Davids Unforgettable Blonde Bride? You should be wearing a wedding gown…(he stood you up…?)
MS DAVID: NO! I only looked like her! To correct 2D, I am from 2004 Birthstone Collection Ruby Barbie!
2D: OK, I stand corrected, my apology.
MS RUBY: Accepted, now how about a close up shot?
2D: Uhm, tired, next time. Good night.
And finally I get to post the continuation of my Thrift Store Sale (just a post, not selling any at the moment.)
BARBIE: Oohh finally! 2D had the time, I’ve been waiting for this day!
SPANISH GIRL: So where was she? Hope she did not spent the 2 months searching for a pair of shoes for Mulan!
SPANISH GIRL: 2D does’nt know who I am so she keeps referring to me as “spanish girl” (too busy to search)
THERESA: Yup! I love showing my belly button! Got to go, this is my first and last pic, 2D just allowed me to pursue my modelling career with my new agent (or mom). My twin shall stay.
TERESA: Good luck sis! I’m happy I get to stay. 2D liked my skin tone (we both have the same color!) I love my evening dress, it’s simple.
MS MASQUERADE: OK, no tutu skirt for me, sad……but I know she has plans for me. I’m from an AVON exclusive, Ballet Masquerade Barbie 2000
