Oh, dear. It’s already November and I’ve already been inactive for almost two months. I’ve been extremely busy with work, school and life, that I hardly remember the events of the previous day. It’s quite sad, to be honest!
Over the past few weeks I’ve been able to secure some of my favorite stock outfits, such as Oren, Aquel and Chibi Risa (dal). Aquel was definitely a stock that I’ve always admired. I already have Coral’s stock, Aquel is perfect match because it’s blue, and Pullip sized. I didn’t want to go as far as to buy Aquel now and try to sell her, so it was perfect timing that someone was selling their stock. I need to do a little cleaning to it, but it should work perfectly. Oren’s stock is also wonderful! I love the bright pink pattern, and I’m excited to have another pair of sunglasses. I also split Dal Chibi Risa [Rock Version], and should receive her stock by early next week if all works well. I already have plans for parts of her stock, especially the very awesome heart shaped shades.
I’m honestly overwhelmed by the amount of dolls, clothes and accessories I’ve accumulated over past seven years of collecting. I’ve collected pinky:st since 2004, and Pullip & friends since the end of 2005. Since then, I’ve gathered a vast amount of miniatures to act as accessories to my little plastic friends. This weekend, I looked across my room and felt saddened because it’s so crowded and disorganized. Apparently I collect too much at once, and have little to no time to play and organize.
So it came down to this. Organization. I needed to accept that although I may have lost a few items here and there over the years, the fact I still have them means something and I could still use them. So I sat, opened items and organized. There are two organizing projects that I am currently invested in. 1) Organize the pinky:st and 2) Organize the miniatures.
It takes several hours to disassemble tiny packages of pinkys and rement/megahouse products. Lots of recycling and trash takes place too. It’s interesting because minis + pinky always came hand in hand for me. I’d always want to create some sort of miniature world with the miniatures I have. But seeing all the different miniatures that I do own helps me think of all the photo possibilities. There’s only one thing I need, and that is time.
I never realized how many miniatures I’ve collected over the years. Some sets I didn’t even realize I already owned! I’ll be separating each item by type and theme. It’s going to be a long process but once complete it will be totally worth it. Hopefully in the near future I’ll be able to share actual photos on this blog and less dream posting.
