The wonderful world of 1/4

I have had an MSD on order for months and months, so when I saw a listing on DoA (Den of Angels) for a Souldoll Arina, I bought her.

She is pensive. I like her faceup (company default).

I've been experimenting with photography. I like the dead back background (velveteen draped over a piece of coroplast).

Then, I got another 1/4 doll. This time an Ellowyne Wilde - I think I've been longing for vinyl and in denial. Her posing is not as great as resin, but she fits on her saddle stand so well I don't mind.

Here's a quick (I lied - this is the single fruit of several-many flash photography attempts. And I got one of the flashes in the frame. But I'm learning!)

So, the original 1/4 I ordered should be here on Saturday. I hope I love her as much as I do these two. I'm looking forward to shooting multiple dolls all of a scale.


  1. Hello from Spain: I just discovered your blog and really like. I also collect Barbies and furniture in 1:06 scale. I like your dolls. Great job. I invite you to visit my blog: If you want to keep in touch. I became a follower of your blog.

  2. Both dolls are very pretty and your photos of them came out very nicely. I like the black background, I tried it recently on some photos and was really pleased with the result, it makes the colours really pop.
    Keep up the good work!

  3. Thank you both. Go Spain! I'm glad I got started in the ball joint doll hobby with 1/3 size dolls (they seem very large to me now). It is nice having two sizes to make clothes for.
