"And so the lion fell in love with the lamb"

I finally completed my Edward Cullen doll. I <3 him in the biggest way. He's a Taeyang doll (Pullip's boyfriend). I thought it was appropriate that he make his debut on the DVD debut, March 21st, of the Twilight movie. He seems to be getting lots and lots of attention from me right now, and has moved to the top of the list in my collection. He's my first custom, but had lots of help -- I had his clothing custom made.

I posted some bigger pics in the Dolly Daily community, and I'm sure to post even more. Just waiting for the moment to inspire me. Gosh, who knew that the Twilight saga would grab hold of me the way it did. As a late bloomer (just discovered the series in Feb 09), I quickly became addicted from page 1, fell in love with all 4 books, fell in love with the movie, and now I'm hoping for more. :-)

Hair styling chat

Please join us at 9pm (eastern) on Thursday, March 19th in the DollyDaily chat room (available in the DollyDaily community) for a "How to style your doll's hair" chat by marinav305.

Marinav305 participated in the haircutting "how to" chat last month and had shared lots of photos of her dolls restyled. After lots of "ooohs" and "aaahs" she volunteered to host a chat on how to achieve those same results. The chats are all-kinds-of-fun. Please check the "how to" forum in the DollyDaily community for more information on what supplies you'll need to participate.

We hope to see you there.

"Gal on the Go" Barbie doll

My new "Gal on the Go" silkstone Barbie doll arrived over the weekend; she's the official Barbie Fan Club (BFC) doll. I'm so excited to get her. This year's Barbie Fashion Model Collection (BFMC) silkstone dolls are all about updating Barbie doll's vintage classics. I love the "Busy Gal" homage. Later this year, Mattel is coming out with updated silkstone versions of Gay Parisienne, Plantation Belle, Solo in the Spotlight, the very first Barbie doll in her black and white maillot, and possibly more.

Here's a pic of "Gal on the Go"

I love her jet bubble cut hair style and the glittery violet eyeshadow. One of my favorite features of this lovely "gal" is that her earrings are easily removed. In prior years, Mattel had a U-shaped prong for her earring post, and then later moved to a post with a ball at the end of it to keep the earrring in her head. I'm so glad that they finally (FINALLY!) switched to the basic earring post. It's so easy.

I can't wait for the rest of the collection to begin shipping. This is beginning to look like a terrific year for Barbie doll's 50th Anniversary.
