We have a logo!

Monday, 28 May 2012
Notice the header? XD
We have a logo now! Yay!! It was inspired by the cloud and marshmallows. ^^

I kinda get the idea from Kyanime's Scavenger Hunt : First Set Items Task No. 5: A sculpture of Kyanime mascot, made entirely of marshmallows and glue. XD

This was the old header:

There's some uneven lines, I know, but...I'm so lazy...so... *speechless* x_x

Anyway, Thank you so much to Lauren Thompson (Nymphont/NymFont) for the blog template! ^^

I am sooooo excited!! Kyanime 2012 is approaching soon on 8th - 10th June!
We at The Dolly Carnet are eager to join this annual event; Yes! We'll be cosplaying! We have been a loyal fan/cosplayers to Kyanime since their first debut in 2010! XD

There's another thing that made us anxious as well. We are hoping that we can have a booth to display our loved Dolls~ I have emailed the organizer on a few fun contest proposals and I hope that we get green light! *doki doki* AND! I hope that eeeeveryone will join the contest! It doesn't matter if you love dolls or not (why wouldn't you love dolls? ;_;), as long as you have passions in creativity! ^_^

Since The Dolly Carnet blog is just starting, and we're only a mere 4 ladies, we really don't have the budget to make things all grande~ but we will try our best in getting the booth and the prizes (we're kinda scared to ask for sponsors ;_;) ! And the most important thing is, to spread the love of Doll collecting to the public~! *prays*

Please give us comments here or in FB page on what do you think about the idea. ^_^
Curse us all the best!!!

p/s: This might be applicable to Malaysian and the event is in Kuching, Sarawak. Let see if we can work things out in the future for internationals. ^^

Yours Truly,

DIY: Wig Changing (Fitting with Glue)

Friday, 3 February 2012
When I bought Mirabella, I really love almost everything about her except...her wig... Her pink wig is lovely just that I could not blend her overall style together and I decided to change them with the new wig that I have bought for her. I'll start my short "tutorial" for wig changing n_n

Things that you will need:
A Pullip doll (Mirabella) and a wig

DIY : Doll Storage and Carrier.

Hello Parfaits~!

I'd like to share my DIY things. :)
I'm much a budget Doll lover and kinda have a tight pocket. :P
Being a housewife won't let me splurge a lot on doll things.
However, we can turn most of our unused things at home to be our treasured items! ^^

What do you need: 
x. Any containers - I'm using a toolbox.
x. Ribbons, laces, ropes, flowers, etc - mine were all came from from my wedding 'hantaran' decoration leftovers.
x. Super Glue or the Glue gun thing.
x. Scissor.

On to the pictures. Please excuse the messy background.

This is an old toolbox where I always keep my school badges, erasers, school tudung's pins, junks, etc.
Found this 3-storey big guy super dusty in my old desk. So cleaned that up! Hehe~

Doll collecting is no child's play 
by Antonia Chiam, reporters@theborneopost.com . Posted on January 3, 2012, Tuesday

DOLL CRAZE: Two dolls in Lee's collection, a Groove's Byul Hermine doll named Hazeline Rozene (left) and a Jun Planning's Dal Melize doll named Elisa Rozene.

KUCHING: Doll collecting is no child's play and Kuching doll collectors hope to reach out to others with the same interest in the state. Doll collector Syamim Ikmal Kamil, 27, said: "There are many doll collectors in Sarawak but they are either too busy or not in Kuching to get together. I plan to open a booth at anime, comic and games (ACG) events such as the annual Kyanime Convention to give more exposure on doll collecting."

"It would be great to gather with like-minded people to exchange knowledge and tips about dolls such as care, DIY, customising, sales and photography."

She said doll collectors could join online forums such as DollMalaysia to get to know other collectors and get tips.

"Don't be shy to join local gatherings to exchange views and have photography fun."

It is important to ask around before purchasing your first doll in case it is a fake.

"There are many types of dolls including Jun Planning, Ball-Jointed Doll (BJD), Blythe, Bratz and Fashion Royalty to name a few." said the owner of a Jun Planning's Pullip Souseiseki, named Zen Ailea, bought for RM200 from an online forum.

Syamim said her hobby did not affect her lifestyle or role as a housewife. "My husband was shocked at the price of the doll but is fine with the hobby as long as I use my own money. He gets to buy his Play Station 3 games so it's fair I get to buy doll stuff. Since I'm a housewife I restrain myself from buying too many doll things. I'm hand-sewing clothes for my doll as I enjoy dressing her up, and making little clothes for her," she said, adding that she is more into Japanese street fashion styles like Lolita and Japanese punk.

Fellow hobbyist Jessica 'TeddyTales' Lee hoped people would see doll-collecting as a hobby, not child play. "In other parts of the world, it is a hobby and age does not matter. It would be good to see more regular activities to encourage collectors to express their interest openly instead of keeping it to themselves. Encouragement plays an important role in changing people’s mindset about doll-collecting," she said. The mother of one said she brought her dolls out sometimes to show and share her hobby with others, not hide them inside her room.

"Actually, during my childhood I got a Barbie doll as a birthday present and I got interested in making clothes for her. However, all those wonderful memories were ruined by the horror movie 'Child's Play'. I became scared of dolls and had nightmares so I abandoned my interest."

"After a decade-and-a-half, my passion for dolls came back when my friend brought her ball-jointed doll (BJD) to an event. I started with Pullip dolls because they have friendly-looking expressions and look cute."

"Doll collecting is not limited to certain types of dolls. The types vary from company to company, and even designs under the same company have differences."

"My advice is to do enough research in this hobby before collecting so as not to end up selling them or keeping in the storeroom. I did a months research after which asking myself 'Do I really want to start this hobby?' before getting my very first doll in 2010. I still love them," said the avid collector of Pullip, BJD, Mimi and porcelain dolls.

Siti Rusmaliza, the petite owner of a Dream of Doll BJD and a Groove-Innocent World Dal Clair doll, hopes for more doll gatherings to share knowledge on the hobby.

"I believe there are many doll lovers out there even though the hobby is relatively new to the people here."

"I disagree that dolls are for kids as not all dolls are suitable for kids. The kinds we collect have small removable parts which are not safe for young children," she explained.

Taking care of the dolls requires specialised knowledge. "For example, BJD body is made of resin. Owners will tell you they don’t allow exposure to the flash of cameras or overexposure to sunlight as the skin will turn yellowish. The fact that they are expensive dolls will make collectors handle them with care," she said.

Kuching held its first doll gathering in October last year.
