Happy 2018 everyone!
I celebrated New Year's Eve with a friend, and we did a photo-shoot with my Iplehouse Raffine - the one with the body art painted by BJD face-up artist Vitta Vera.
I'd made a thirties-style gown in pleated gold fabric for the celebrations, and I think she looks pretty wonderful!
Her beautiful wig is "Marianne", by Amadiz Studio.
December, and the weather is glorious! Sunshine, blue skies, light breezes... I forgive you, Auckland (well almost), for all that rain that you dumped on us for four long months in winter...
Raffine wears a top crocheted by me, with pleated shorts in noil silk.
Her feet are beautifully pedicured and decorated with "barefoot sandals" by BJD face-up artist "Vitta Vera".
Based in New Zealand, I've been a collector of ball-jointed dolls since 2011.
