I got my order from Etsy store KawkanaStyle, so I got out my RaccoonDoll ladies and my sole FID woman and changed them into autumn gear.
Iplehouse FID Raffine looks lost in an autumn reverie... memories of springtime, perhaps?
Her pretty jumper and stretch denims (actually leggings) are by KawkanaStyle. She just manages to squeeze into a pretty pair of boots by Paul Zhangby (actually for RaccoonDoll, who have smaller feet!)
Laetitia gets stretch denims as well, and some French flair - a striped top and lavender beret scarf made by Lyanne. Lucky Laetitia!
Gene gets a rose top and leggings by KwakanaStyle;
And Smiling Gene gets her first outing!
She got a lovely vibrant orange knit ensemble from Iplehouse, and also new feet from Iplehouse!
The feet & shoes fit together (no toes - does that make her the Pobble Who Has No Toes? :) )
RaccoonDoll girls can 'wear' Iplehouse JID and FID hands, and also high heel FID feet which allows them to wear American Model shoes which would be otherwise too large.
Iplehouse normal skin matches very well with RaccoonDoll normal, Iplehouse real skin with RD sweet mocha, and Iplehouse light brown with RD dark mocha.
Smiling Gene was a tiny bit wobbly on these feet, so got a stand to make sure she didn't fall while I was taking photographs.
Here are a sample of Lyanne's stunning pics of my RaccoonDoll Laetitia. I think you'll agree with me that she does amazing work! Please take the time to visit her Flickr site and view her fantastic photos.
Laetitia got popped into a violet JID lingerie set and set to lounging on pillows;
Her wig is by jpopdolls, and her jewellery by Iplehouse. Her fabulous face-up is by Vitta Vera.
I think Laetitia is contemplating a new career as a lingerie model!
I wish everyone a wonderful Christmas. Enjoy the festivities, and see you in the New Year!
Laetitia and Doria are ready to party...
Gotta love those long HID woman's legs!
I bought some pieces of ruffle fabric from Etsy, and when my pretty light brown Aria (Leilani) arrived, I created a sort of evening gown for her by pinning the fabric at the back.
Well, I liked it so much, I quickly made it up into a dress, modelled by Laetitia. She is seen here with Karel (Iplehouse nYID boy Oscar).
I made another dress toute suite for (peach gold) Aria...
and a little top...
As well as body blushing Griffin, I've been working on modding an SID Iplehouse body to fit Elfdoll June head.
I bought June's head from Elfdoll in late 2013 when Elfdoll stated that they were discontinuing all their existing sculpts. I bought the body from a fellow Den of Angels forum member with a neck mod already done, which was great as I probably would never have dared to do anything quite this drastic otherwise.
This is my first ever mod, and it was pretty nerve-racking. I started just sanding the neck, which needed to be thinned further, but that took ages. So I bought a dremel, and got stuck in.
I also widened and deepened the neck-well; and if I ever do another mod like this I will do a lot more work on the neck-well, and thin down the neck less.
However, June looks very pretty on her new body. She has the default company face-up, with the lips pinked up a bit.
I've given her a new name - Laetitia Summers. She has been named after the Roman goddess of joy, happiness and festivity. I wanted a summery name for her, so Laetitia is also a play on words - L'Ete being the French for Summer.
She has subtle body blushing, hand and feet blushing and temporary tattoos.
There are more photos of Laetitia in my Flickr album;
Based in New Zealand, I've been a collector of ball-jointed dolls since 2011.
