Cameron Venitu 5th Motif

I bought the outer cardigan aaages ago, and it’s a reaaally cheap cardie that as soon as I got it I thought what the hell did I just buy? For over 5 years I had no doll who would wear it because it was either too big or too small, it’s awkward and drab. Well, now I finally have an equally awkward and drab doll to put it on ^_^ Hahah, I dunno why most of my boy dolls look like they need a freakkin bath. Occasionally I have recurring dreams about washing someone’s hair. I’ve not had a dream about washing Cameron’s hair yet. I dream about washing my partner’s hair a lot, and the other night I scored an amazing one: washing Scarlett Johansson’s hair. I have the biggest crush on Scar. She’s so freakkin CUTE and SEXY, Gwaaahh…

Ahhh hoooodies!

Wow I just realised that the last few entries I made had all been about Cameron, ^^” I do have other dolls, it’s just that they are either in hard to reach places or in need of a repaint, so I haven’t taken a lot of their pics T__T…

But for now! Here’s Kitson for a change. I’ve always wanted a black hooded jumper for him. The fabulous Morgana of Peppermint Circus (Etsy) has made me an awesome one plus a white muscle top in exchange for painting her girls’ faceup. HOLYSH how cool is this outfit? It’s just sooo rare to find a hooded jumper with a zipper opening in the doll world. So this is like a grail clothing item for me lol and then when I put it on Kitson I was like YESSSS you’re finally looking how you’re meant to T__T…

Get the look: Scandinavian Winter

Winter fashion

Been looking at a lot of housing interior designs lately for our property down in South Melbourne near the coast. At first I was going to go with something Asian/Japanese influenced, because I love their architecture and simplistic elegance, but for a Melbourne home, I keep being drawn to that whole Scandinavian Nordic look instead.

The combination of white clean walls, rustic wooden floorboards, cream coloured kitchens and beige furnishing look really nice and modern but at the same time remind me of a cosy forest lodging or a coastal lighthouse. It's totally reflective of my love of simplistic things.

Trying to channel the flavours to my dolls 🙂

Venitu Outfits from M3 Bjd Review

Hey folks!

So happy that my order of outfits for the Venitu arrived today ^__^. All of the clothing items you see below are from M3 BjD (International Store & Taobao Store).

I have ordered my lot using the shopping agent Taobao Trends, they are the only agent I use because: (1) they are trustworthy, (2) their fees are good value, (3) they proactively help you in asking loads and loads of detailed question to the sellers and if they think you aren’t asking the right question they even help you by asking a bit more than you need, (4) they always take photos of all the stuff you order before they send them off to you, (5) their EMS rates are freakking incredible.

How I ordered: I basically asked Taobaotrends to ask M3 BJD whether they can do custom size and I gave them Venitu’s measurements.
Total items ordered from M3: 17 items (which includes 2 items for my hubby’s SD Elfdoll girl)
Order date placed: 7 November 2014
Order shipped by TaobaoTrends to me: 7 January 2015
Order received by me: 12 January 2015

Individual item review:



Item description: Overalls
Item link: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=40014837059
Review: So damn adorable. Perfect length and thigh girth. Waist is a bit baggy, but then who the hell wears tight overalls unless you’re kinky-cosplaying, haha? No zippers, just snaps.


Item description: Plaid shorts
Item link: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=39984071664
Review: I’m totally loving this style, they taper a bit inward as they go down. Perfect length and thigh girth once again. Rides pretty low around the waist (as above in the picture is as low as they would sit however) but will not slide off the butt. No zippers, just snaps.



Item description: Black slim fit jeans with splatter patterns
Item link: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=39998578107
Review: These are what you call the slim fit style (i.e. they narrow towards the ankle although not quite as tight as skinny jeans). Really nice masculine pattern, not as garrish as the one on their website. Perfect length and thigh girth once again. Rides pretty low around the waist (as above in the picture is as low as they would sit however) but will not slide off the butt. No zippers, just snaps.


Item link: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=39998502297 (Black Tooling Vest)
Item link: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=39998246827 (Light Grey slim fit jeans with splatter patterns)
Review: These are the same style jeans as the ones above, but just different colour. The black vest is absolutely perfect fit and length. I’m thinking of printing something on it. No zippers, just snaps. Rides pretty low around the waist.


Item link: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=39984179304 (Dark Navy Straight Jeans)
Item link: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=39998246827 (Black Tooling Vest)
Review: Hah I had a good laugh because these are the exact style of jeans my hubby wears all the time and my favourite item in my order. Look very much like those Lee Cooper jeans advertisements don’t they? In the seller’s website these jeans appear black but actually they are very dark navy blue, nice masculine colour. No zippers, just snaps. Perfect length and thigh girth once again. Rides pretty low around the waist.

Item link: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=39984179304 (Dark Navy Straight Jeans)
Item link: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=39998246827 (Black Tooling Vest)
Review: I absolutely love this coat, it has a nice woollen texture like duffel coat but not too thick so scale wise it’s perfect. I think the arms can do with 0.5 cm more in length, but I’ve seen in some Korean fashion mags the men wear their sleeves deliberately short, so I’m pretty happy with this. It’s tailored pretty close to the body so it has a nice slim fit look instead of baggy 80’s blazers.

Item link: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=39998246827 (Black Tooling Vest)
Review: These jeans don’t really look like the picture on the website, but I’m absolutely loving its skinny jeans look. I actually don’t really mind the white stone-washes, without them I think the jeans would otherwise look real boring. If you’ve been dying for skinny jeans for your Vens, well ladies and gents, these ones I say are AAA+ because the waist girth is perfect, both upper and lower thigh girths are perfect. They aren’t too tight that you can make out the doll’s penis shape or knee joints (hahah yeah yeah I’m foul mouthed). My second fave pair of jeans from the lot.

Item link: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=39998246827 (Black Tooling Vest)
Review: The charcoal coat is the same style as the Woollen Coat – Beige above. I’m so glad I got both colours they mix and match real well with many pants.

Item description: Really corny but awesome 80’s T-shirt!

eview: I LOVE IT! The style is so that you can see the navel and wide collared. Makes me think of AHA’s Take On Me.


Item link: http://item.taobao.com/item.htm?id=40029344081 (Blue Boot Cut Jeans)
Review: OMGOSH when I saw the teddy jumper I went ballistic! It’s sooooooooo freakking cute T__T, I don’t care if this makes my Venitu look like a 12 year old, I love those floppy ears. I plan on sewing some elbow patches and other decorations onto this.
The jeans are a boot cut style (i.e. the ankles are slightly larger than the upper thighs), really nice fabric they used for these, like formal jeans rather than casual ones and the colour is even all over. HOWEVER, they are really really BIG O_O. The waist girth is too big by about 1.5 cm so I will need a belt to hold these up otherwise I can yank these down and they will slip off the hips (which isn’t necessarily always a bad thing hahaha).

Review: Wow they are sooo cool! I ordered these in the largest size they have.

Venitu Outfits from Iplehouse – what fits

Quick post to show the fitting of the 2 Iplehouse.net shirts I bought for my Venitu. Both of these shirts are in the SID man size. The chest and length of torso is better I believe than the EID Model man size, it is not too tight, there’s a bit of give around the waist and chest, of about 1 cm. The SID arm holes are not too small either like most standard 70 cm clothing sizes, nor are they waaaay too big like the EID Model man size arm holes, so the shirts sit on the shoulders like they are meant to. The SID sleeves however are too short by 1.5 cm as pictured, but if you like the rolled up sleeves look then this will not be a problem. The SID t-shirts with short sleeves are an amazing fit, it’s perfect!

The pants are both in EID Model man size. They are a bit loose around the waist by about 2 cm, but I don’t mind it, they just hang lower on the hips so they look real sexy actually, don’t worry you won’t need a belt, they don’t slip off the hips at all. The length of the pants is perfect though.
