Char’s Doll Diaries

Wilde Wednesday

Char’s Doll Diaries (@dolldiaries on Twitter) has a regular Wednesday feature highlighting Wilde Imagination, often with Ellowyne in Char’s creative stylings and photos. This week it was Ellowyne in 1970s fashion.

70s doll Crissy’s had a cousin Velvet who wore an eggplant corduroy dress with a cream colored bow. Ellowyne borrowed that dress today.


Alison’s Fashion Doll Review

Ultra Basic Sydney

Alison (@FDR_Alington on Twitter) is a big BJD collector and her blog reflects her love of Tonner dolls. This week she posted an Ultra Basic Sydney that had a face-up by Beesou of Overnight Flight, Antoinette Shimmer in the foreground, she says “I think Tonner’s resin is just a lovely shade–and so gorgeous. I can’t wait till Tonner’s convention this year–I’m hoping for a resin Daphne!”. She’s a frequent contributor to the Tonner photo fan site Doll Duels, her Flickr can be found here.


Charlie’s Dolls Behaving Badly

New Years Ideas and Resolutions

Charlie (@charlieriley819 on Twitter) has been under the weather for a bit and we are of course wishing her strong health. Aside from our doll blogging and her general awesomeness she also hosts Twitter #dollchat on Sundays at 2 pm EST. She also is known for her companion doll “Martie” a Jim Dandy modified Rapunzel, a pic of which she posts humorously. Love the idea of a “Meet the Dolls” section on her blog.

Martie’s getting grumpy about the lack of attention. Here’s an older pic to pacify her. I made her entire outfit, except of course the shoes. And the cat hair.

Go to the post to read up on Marit and find out more about the mesmerizing dress: Marit Allen’s Scarlett gown recreation by Tamara Gavrysh. You can find our own Gone With The Wind Collection here.

Here is one Marit Allen gown re-created by Tamara Gavrysh for me. It is the gown worn by Scarlett to a Charleston Ball and after which the one she wears when she almost drowns.
