Everyone, meet Leemoo!
This is Leemoo B. Rakune – named as a nod to my dear friend Neil who is so full of awesome that he trekked all around Japan looking for a Simply Guava to bring home for me. This is in spite of the fact that he is absolutely terrified of Blythe… and dolls in general, but especially Blythe! How lovely is he? The B. stands for “bitch-hard-to-find” :yum: – Neil is pretty convinced she was the only one in Tokyo whilst he was out there. He could find loads of other Blythe dolls, but no Guava. Luckily he found my little Leemoo and brought her home to me.
Straight out of box she is pretty good, surprisingly. She’s staying fairly stock, I think. New eyechips are a must, and I think I’ll spray her with some Mr Super Clear once the weather is a bit better. I need to spray my Rouge Noir as well, eeeek! Leemoo’s hair is (almost) perfectly cut, and super silky soft. Her stock outfit is a bit rubbishy, but check out her shoes!
Pink converse! ^__^ I just know these are almost always going to be on one of the Blythe dolls at any given time. Especially my Goldie, Iggy, and my custom Love Mission, Elvie. There is going to be serious dolly fighting!
In other good news, Dan has just bought us a DSLR! He won us a Nikon D100 on eBay last weekend, with a boatload of extra accessories and stuff included. I’m looking forward to playing with it, but I’m so in love with my Sony DSC-H10 it’s untrue. I’m sure I’ll give the D100 a chance, and then probably end up lusting after the Sony Alpha DSLRs even more than I already do. :heart: Dan’s all excited about the prospect of infra-red photography, and days out in castles/ruins when the weather is a bit nicer. This excites me, as it means days out in castles/ruins with dollies. Exciting times ahead!
I’m off to have a go at some knitting now – this week I learned to knit, purl, and cast off. I’m very much enjoying the Stitch ‘n Bitch Knitter’s Handbook, by Debbie Stoller – simple, clear and idiot proof. Just what I need! I am absolutely determined to knit something Blythe sized in the next two weeks. I can do this! :hero:
Oh my Gosh, Leemoo’s freakin’ adorable! :yawn:
And the story of how she came to live with you is even more adorable. What a keeper that friend of yours is, oh my! I’d like me a few of those types of friends myself, yes I would … Any idea where I can collect several of them?! xD; 😛 Seriously, though, you are lucky!
I love Leemoo’s hair most of all — That bright pink is both charming and in-your-face at the same time. :heart: Same with the pink Chuck Taylors! I just bought a pair of those myself a few months ago! Just cheapies, though. They only cost me ten bucks. I really want a pair of ACTUAL Converse, but c’mon … They’re like $70 a pair. I could get SEVEN pairs of cheapies in every colour of the rainbow … Or ONE pair of Converse.
When you’re unemployed like I currently am, you go for the cheapies, LOL. xD;
And ooh, congrats on learning how to knit! Is it super difficult …? I’d love to try and make something like this for myself one day: 
Or this: 
But I’m guessing that kinda shit is EXTREMELY complicated. x_X; Probably’d be cheaper and easier to just buy one, haha. :faint:
Congrats on the new DSLR, they are a bit too expensive for me right now, but I would love to have one. That is a weird/frakly looking doll, but kind of cute in its own way.
She’s really, really cute! & that hair color is hot 😀
Ahh I really want to learn how to knit as well, so I can make my own beanies and socks 😀 simple, clear and idiot proof sounds good to me too haha, good luck 😉 xxx
