Hook arrived yesterday!  His stock Captain Hook outfit is hilariously cute, but I immediately put him in street clothing.  I found a Fashionista Ken (Ryan, who ever he is) set which everything fit except for the shoes.

Stock heeled pirate boots

Nadine and Hook

I happened to have some squishy boots that are from Ken or G.I. Joe that went on when I cut a slit down the backs.  A nice surprise is that my vintage Ken clothing fits! 

I put my Tinker Bell Dal (got her from Tuesday Morning as well as Hook, but not in my state) up against Hook and I can see the brother/sister resemblance.  I am learning a lot about the Pullip family tree- Pullip's boyfriend is Taeyang, her ex is Namu, Isul is Pullip's little brother, Dal is Taeyang's little sister, Byul is Dal friend, Yeolume is Pullip and Taeyang's future child....Yikes!  It sounds all complicated.  I think at some point Pullip and Taeyang are getting friends too.

I want to get Hook a new wig and eye chips.  But as of right now, he will stay in a Blythe wig and stock eyes.

I don't think Ken realizes another man is in the house yet. He is suspicious since I took off with his clothing.

Move over Ken

I'm just not that into boy dolls.  There are those select few custom Blythe boys that I drool over (the one that looks like a Burtonesque Johnny Depp love times a million), but over all they just aren't my thing.  Several years ago (before Blythe) I got a 1963 or 64 Mattel Ken from an estate sale.  He is a very nice looking blonde boy.

For the longest he was naked.  Now he has a nice little wardrobe thanks to my ebay misadventures.

Well, Ken has to move over and make room for a new boy.  Tuesday Morning has had Disney Pullips, Dals, Byuls, and Taeyangs hit the stores.  I have a Tinker Bell Dal and now a Hook Taeyang.

I have to go hunt some clothes down for him as well as a boyish wig.

New patterns

Since I have had a break from school the pattern making has come all at once.  I have new patterns in the works, newly published patterns, and an update on an old pattern.

New middie pattern is Felted Helmet for Middie:


Also, I have a package deal for the Middie and Neo Helmet patterns:


Turban for Blythe:


And, 2-3, or 4 more patterns to come.  One will be free!

I had some questions on the Romper for Blythe which led me to rework the pattern.  I added a few new details and features:


Keep an eye out for more to come.  I have exactly 5 more days until my summer school starts which I hope to have a lot more up and going before then.
