City shopper Barbie doll X8257


This beauty is the "City shopper" Barbie (X8257). She's really cool. Though I usually loose the hair of all my dolls, I like very much her ponytail so I think she will keep it.

She is wearing our mustard gabardineour mustard skirt and our pink body.








I hope you like her as much as I do.

In the next weeks I will show you some of my new girls. I bought a lot of Barbies when I was in Orlando last September 😀 There are much more assortment and best prices in the USA than in Spain so I bought a lot of them online (both in Amazon.com and Mattel) to be sent to my hotel. This is me when I arrived at the hotel and pick them all 😂 It was like Christmas time for me!

Diorama 1:6 doll


As you may know, we are two people in B&I: Charo is the one who sews the clothes and I am the one who make the photos. We have been receiving a lot of orders lately and Charo feels she needs to take a break to rest. So our Etsy shop is now on vacation until January 2018. But I will go on sharing photos with you 😊 In this one you can see my new furniture (shelving and mirror) from Marcia Harrys  The tulle skirt is from our Etsy shop and the t-shirt (in pink!) will be available in our Etsy shop when we re-open it. I bought the purse in Aliexpress. The plants are from FashionDollStore.

1/6 diorama

I'm not totally happy with the position of Poppy's feet... it's a little bit difficult to pose this doll with her loose joints and I didn't notice about her feet until it was too late 😌 But I still like the photo and hope that you will too.

By the way, she is "Mayhem In Monte Carlo" Poppy Parker rerooted. I have dyed her hair with Rit dye powder (golden yellow + tan bronce + a little bit of petal pink) because I found the original color too light for her dark skin. I prefer it this way, I think it's more natural. The only trouble I found dying her hair was that the hair's orifices took a dark color (I guess the dye got "caught" in them) but I removed it with alcohol and a needle.

OOAK Barbie

 
August is a quiet month here in Spain, so I took advantage to do many things for my dolls 😊 I made this wood wainscot following the great tutorial of Bonequea. And I painted this thick foam core board on both sides: one in grey (the one I used in these photos) and one in pale blue. The "marble ground" is a printable that you can free download here.


The girls in the previous photo are "Look Cocktail Chic (DGY09)" with MTM body and "Tokidoki (CMV57)" with repaint, reroot and a Look body.


The repaint was made by Sara from "My dolls, My world" and I couldn't love her more. She is stunningly beautiful And Sara was such a wonderful person ♥ ♥ 

The reroot was made by Gema Trenado. Gema was so nice with me: the doll has been repainted before rerooted, and she took care of not damaging her make-up.

You can find the tulle skirts in our Etsy shop, in 8 colors to choose. And you cand find the t-shirts also in our Etsy shop.
