That Mew You Do

Joce wearing cat ears is admittedly pretty cliché at this point, but I had this velvet*paw top hanging around that I couldn’t quite figure out how to style any other way. I also just needed something quick and easy to shoot that I could finish without getting too bogged down, as usually happens with my larger sets.

Of course, I still took forever to get even this little thing done…

Unexpectedly Sweet

When I initially got into the BJD hobby, many years ago, my first doll was a Volks MSD Myu. I didn’t keep her long before changing her out for another (MSD Mika), and then she, too, was sold as I discovered that I enjoyed playing with and photographing larger sizes. For a long time after, I resisted getting another mini, not wanting to split my resources on a yet another size that would require its own particular selection of wigs, clothes, and shoes.

But recently, my stance on that shifted somewhat. For one thing, I had become enamored of the Unoss body and its gorgeous, unique shape and design. I’ve also been avidly collecting BJD mooks, which constantly showcase the various Alchemic Labo offerings. Add to that the longing realization that many of my favorite clothing dealers offered Unoa sizes, and, well… that resolve began to crumble.

I picked her up secondhand from Yahoo!Japan, and she has been a delight thus far. While I’m clearly inexperienced with handling her, she’s wonderfully fun to photograph and dress. Even before I had decided to get her, I’d been collecting little odds and ends of Unoa-sized clothing with the plans to fit them to my YoSD girls (with pins if needed), but now I can go all-in on building her wardrobe. She’s also given me the chance to play with fur wigs for the first time in years, which has been an enjoyable experience, especially when there are such cute styles available.

Hopefully you’ll like her, too! She might not have much of a role in my crew right now, but I foresee plenty of photos of her in the future…

I’ve been hoarding these Lush Berry dresses for a while, waiting for the right time to get all three girls in them at once. It’s always fun to dress them in matching outfits but with unique accessories.
