Custom Blythe for Sandra

I know it's been a long time since I posted my last custom doll. I've been working so hard, but I don't want to stop making dolls.
This is an order from Sandra, the last order I'll make, as I really want to create my own ideas.
She wanted an Irish red-haired girl and here she is! I'm sure she'll love her and hope she'll be with her before the end of this year.

 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Sé que ha pasado mucho tiempo desde que publiqué mi última custom. He estado trabajando mucho, pero no quiero dejar de hacer muñecas.
Esta es un encargo de Sandra, el último encargo que haré, porque quiero poder crear mis propias ideas.
Ella quería una pelirroja irlandesa y ¡aquí está! Estoy segura de que le va a gustar y espero que esté con ella antes de fin de año.

Custom for Juanmavet


This is Cordelia, a Natasha Moore that I've just customized for Juanma. This is a very special doll for him, as she was her first Blythe. I'm so glad to say that he loves what I've done on her!!
Now I'm starting with a custom doll for her sister, the last order from my list. Then I'll be able to go on with my Dorothy from Kansas!

September is here! And comes with this special girl.



Let me introduce you Alecia.
You may remember an old post I published last december talking about a swap with my friend Angela. She made a gold lovely pendant with my nickname and I had to make a custom doll for her. Well, so here she is!
It's been a while since she made her part, but first she had to buy the doll, then we needed to choose the hair and, finally, I found a new job and needed to sew for BCEU, so hadn't  had time enough.

I was going to use pink colors on her, as Angela and I like P!nk so much (that's why doll's name's Alecia), but she told me to do on her doll whatever I wanted and I'm a bit bored about pink color and really fancy to use this kind of hair in black and blonde on a doll and use this fabric on a dress.

Angela still doesn't know how her new doll is called and will discover it reading this post. I hope you like it! n_n


 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Os presento a Alecia.
Seguramente recordaréis una antigua entrada que publiqué el pasado diciembre hablando sobre un intercambio con mi amiga Angela. Ella me hizo un precioso colgante de oro con mi nombre y yo tenía que hacerle una custom a ella. ¡Y aquí está!
Ha pasado mucho tiempo desde que ella cumplió su parte, pero primero tenía que comprar la muñeca, luego elegir el pelo y, finalmente, yo empecé en un nuevo trabajo y tenía que coser para el BCEU, así que no he tenido mucho tiempo.

Iba a usar colores rosas para esta muñeca, porque a Angela y a mi nos gusta mucho P!nk (por eso la muñeca se llama Alecia), pero me dio vía libre para hacer lo que yo quisiera y yo estaba algo aburrida del rosa y tenía muchas ganas de usar este tipo de pelo en negro y rubio y esta tela para coser un vestido.


Angela aún no sabe cómo se llama su muñeca y lo descubrirá leyendo esta entrada. ¡Espero que te guste! n_n

My donation for BCEU


Here is my donation to the Blythecon Europe this year. A Neo Blythe's outfit. I wanted to sew the same outfit for Middie size, but don't have time enough for all.
This outfit is like an introduction to a custom work I'd like to make after BC. I'll make a Dorothy custom Blythe doll with alpaca hair, so... I think I won't finish her until the end of this summer.
I must add that these red shoes were made by Jemgirl. You can visit her Etsy shop here,

 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Aquí está mi donación para el Blythecon europeo de este año. Un outfit de Blythe Neo. Quería coser también el mismo conjunto para Middie, pero no tengo suficiente tiempo para todo.
Este outfit es como una introducción a un trabajo de custom que me gustaría llevar a cabo después del BC. Haré una Blythe customizada de Dorothy con pelo de alpaca, así que... supongo que no la terminaré hasta finales de este verano.
Debo añadir que estos zapatos rojos los ha hecho Jengirl. Puedes ver su tienda en Etsy aquí:

A very bad dolly deal (También en VDP)


I’m writting this because I’m having serious problems with the last order I accepted and I’d like to explain things as they happened just to let you all know about this.

Many people from the Spanish community knows about this since las Friday. I need to thank them all, so they are helping me a lot.



I’m not posting the name of this person, as I don’t want more problems concerning to this girl.


The 30th of January she wrote me an email asking if I could custom a doll for her. She saw a custom I made almost 5 years ago and wanted the same doll.
http://www.flickr.com/photos/truski84/3240958787

Of course I explained her that couldn’t be possible, as I sold that doll as ooak and, as many years passed by, my way of working had evolved.
She understood it and agreed. And I made suggestions to her thinking about a doll she could like too.


The old doll had a light brown color hair and, as she wanted the doll to look like the character of Bella Cullen on Twilight's movies, I suggested a more reddish hair with this link, and told her the color could be different from pictures:
http://us.sk-coolcat.com/front/bin/ptdetail.phtml?Part=L3_28

On the pic it seems just brown, but on the comparisson picture you can appreciate it’s reddish.
We also talked about eyechips and I sent her my price list, wich you can see here, on my website. Always writen in Euros.
The 2nd of February I wrote my shipping address to her and kindly asked her to let me know when the doll was on her way.

I didn’t know anything about her until 4th of March. She told me she ordered the eyechips to another person (beautiful eyechips, I must say), and that she was going to send only the head of the doll, without the body, to save on shipping. And add the pullrings too.
Of course I asked her if she wanted on this doll the same work we talked about before. She said yes, and agreed again about the hair.
I told her about prices again. In Euros.

Finally she sent the doll the 21st of March.
I told her that hair from Coolcat could take 'till 6 weeks to arrive, and that I needed her to pay for that. So I could buy the hair, as I had to wait for the doll and also the hair from that shop. She paid in USD, as Coolcat sells in USD.
I received that payment the 22nd of March. Asked her to tell me again the confirmation about the hair color and ordered the hair from Coolcat.

The 26th of March the doll arrived to me. I told her she should pay to me the whole price before starting my work. That’s when all the troubles started, as she never realized that I was sending her the prices in Euros, so said again and again that was soooo expensive and asked if she could pay the same in AUD or USD.
I kindly told her that she could pay in USD, but had to apply the correct currency convertion.
She paid what I asked in Euros.
I asked her again about carving and make-up colors and started customizing the faceplate and eyemech.

On April 9th I sent her some pictures of the finished work without hair, as I was waiting for it yet.
She liked the work. Just wanted more eyeshadow. I placed more eyeshadow and sent new pictures. She liked the work.

On the 20th of April she asked about her doll and I told her I had no news about hair. I also let her know that I was going to be out for a week and a half and hoped the hair had been at my home by then.
She got so angry and told again and again that she paid so much for the work. She added she wanted that doll for the 1st of May and that I didn’t mentioned anything about me leaving for more than a week.
I told her that she never said anything about the 1st of May. If she was in a hurry, why didn’t she send me the doll when we first talked? And why she never mentioned about that to me? She doesn't answer these questions to me now. I would have told her that was not possible taking in count the shipping times.

Anyway, I left and came back before than I expected. Hair was there and I sew it the same day (2nd of May).
The next day I took pictures of the doll, sent them to the girl and wait a few hours until her answer.
She loved the work, told me her shipping address and during the afternoon I posted the doll as urgent to Australia.

The 16th of May she wrote complaining because the doll hadn’t arrived from Spain to Australia in 13 days. And she repeated how expensive my work was.

The 20th of May. DOLL ARRIVED!!! Unfortunately one of the pullrings she sent was a little crystal blottle and was broken.
She said it was because I placed a pair of silver balls on one string. I don’t know. Maybe it could have been the pressure of the plane or that someone rested on the box. I don’t really know what could happened on the way.
Anyway, she said she liked the doll and everything was ok and said thanks to me.

I was so happy! I’d really had a bad time with that order and it was finally over!! Or maybe not?

Five days later she wrote me so angry again. She complained because the doll had a mark on the neck, as someone had torced the doll when opening.
I told her I didn’t opened it (she sent the opened head without body), so that couldn’t have been me. And if I would have seen any mark I’d fixed it, and I didn't see anything.
She also told that there were short hairs at the top of the scalp.
Yes, there were. And she also complained about the color of the hair. That was Coolcat’s hair, I didn’t choose it, either made it. Not even had time to complain about the different colors, because she was in such a hurry.


She wanted a refund and asked for it in a few emails before I told her those things were not my fault, and I would had made a refund if she had a problem about the work I did, but not the work others did.
So… there she saw the chance and started complaining about how I sewn the hair to the scalp. What she didn't mentioned until I said I wouldn't give any money back if it wasn't my fault.


Also asked her why she didn't mentioned about all those problems when she wrote me to tell the doll arrived and everything was ok.
She said she didn't take the doll from the box until then. Weren't you is such a hurry that could not wait a week and a half more?!?!?!
Reading her emails I finally realized that she didn’t knew what ‘wefted’ means and told her about it.

She answer me one day later saying she asked about that to another customizer, who told her ‘this hair has just been wrapped around the dome’.
I answered ‘Yes, that customizer’s right, that’s what wefted means, I sewn the hair around the scalp, and that’s what you paid for’

Now she says she never wanted that type of reroot. And is telling me things like ‘this is the absolute most crappey job I have ever seen’ or ‘I can't believe you would send that kind of junk to me’.
And she wrote I was being mean because I told her she paid too much for the little crystal bottle.

I’m having a really hard days because of this. Even if I’ve kept all the emails we both sent to each other and pictures of the doll, even if I know I did a well done job.
She’s insulting me and threating me to denonunce me I don’t know where or how.
My sister is a lawyer and told me to be calm, because the girl can’t do anything about this as she asked and paid for a job that I clearly did.
And my friends and family are telling me daily to make this public and forget her. I’m trying so hard to do it.


This is the 'awful' work I did for her (click to view larger image)

Custom Middie Blythe




This is a Francoise Ananassa Middie Blythe that belongs to Verónica. I cut her hair, put new pink eyelashes and a full new make-up with a lot of freckles and tears on her eyes. I also made the bunny yellow helmet and sewed the flowered dress.

Ruby



This doll is Ruby. She was a PD Tokyo and belonged to me, but her old hair was awful and I didn't like her anymore. I couldn't sell a doll that I didn't like, so decided to give her a whole new life including hair, clothes and face. She only keeps her eyelids and eyechips painted as the old doll.

If you look closely you can see that she has four little theeth, but in pictures you can only see two.

From now she's for sale on my Etsy shop.


 ¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯¯

Esta muñeca es Ruby. Era una PD Tokyo y me pertenecía, pero su antiguo pelo era horrible y dejó de gustarme. No podía vender una muñeca que no me gustaba, así que decidí darle una nueva vida completa incluyendo el pelo, la ropa y la cara. Solamente conserva pintados como antes los párpados y los chips.

Si miras de cerca puedes ver cuatro pequeños dientes, pero en las fotos sólo se ven dos.

Desde ahora está a la venta en mi tienda de Etsy.

List closed

I thought a lot about it before taking a decision.  A month ago I announced on my Prices and Customs section that I was going to close my orders list at the beginning of March, and that day is here.
I have a short waiting list of people who contacted me during February and will try to finish with it little by little.

From now I'd like to spend my time, that will be short soon, customizing dolls for sale and sewing and packaging items for Blythecon EU on June in Barcelona.

I don't really know if I'll open my list again in the future and I'm so sorry for the inconveniences.

........................................

Lo pensé mucho antes de tomar la decisión. Hace un mes anuncié en mi apartado de Precios y Customs que iba a cerrar mi lista de encargos a principios de marzo y ese día está aquí.
Tengo una pequeña lista de espera de personas que se ha puesto en contacto conmigo durante febrero y trataré de terminar con ello poco a poco.

A partir de ahora quisiera dedicar mi tiempo libre, que seguramente pronto escaseará, a customs destinadas a la venta y a coser y empaquetar artículos para el Blythecon EU de junio en Barcelona.

No sé si en un futuro volveré a abrir mi lista y siento mucho las molestias ocasionadas.

Lastest handmade clothes

As every year my friends and I made a Christmas swap and yesterday we met to give all the presents. There were amazing things, but mainly everything was gifted with lots of love.

..................................................

Como todos los años mis amigas y yo hemos hecho el amigo invisible en Navidad y ayer quedamos para darnos todos los regalos. Había cosas maravillosas, pero sobre todo los regalos se hicieron con mucho cariño.


I had to prepare presents for Julia, one of my best friends. I bought a lot of tools to cook cupcakes, as she loves bakering and so on, but I also sew this hat for Blythe.

..................................................

Yo tenía que preparar regalos para Julia, una de mis mejores amigas. Compré muchas cosas para hacer cupcakes, ya que le gusta mucho la repostería, pero también le hice este gorro para Blythe.



Julia ordered me a set of dress and rabbit helmet in Middie size as a present to Nerea.

..................................................

Julia me encargó un conjunto de vestido y gorro de conejo de tamaño Middie como regalo para Nerea.


And this last picture shows three helmets made by order to Naiara for one of her BJDs. I really want her to update some pics of the cute doll wearing one of these!

Tomorrow I'll take some pics of the presents Noemí gave to me. I liked them all and am sooo happy with them! There's no light right now :(
..................................................

Y esta ultima foto muestra tres gorros hechos por encargo para Naiara para una de sus BJDs. ¡Tengo muchas ganas de que suba fotos de su preciosa muñeca con alguno de los gorros!

Mañana sacaré fotos de los regalos que me regaló a mi Noemí. ¡Me encantaron todos y estoy muuuuy contenta con ellos! Ya no hay luz :(
