Wedding Couple for Shawn

I was so touched by Shawn… Such a sweet guy! He was using this wedding couple as a proposal to his girlfriend, now fiancé! ;) So sweet and romantic!!

He told me that his fiance loves fairy tales and would be happy to see crown and flowers… Addition to that, he requested ears for both of the dolls! Honestly, after adding the ears, the dolls really look alive! Don’t you think so?

Am thinking to add ears to all the dolls I’ve made in future… ;)

“Once again, thanks so much. They are lovely!”

From Shawn

Wedding Couple for Mindy and TH

This pair of wedding dolls will be used for Mindy’s solemnization. Mindy has a small sexy mole on her left cheek… So, the bride’s doll has one too… When I saw Mindy, this doll really looks like her… ;)

During the collection, she told me she likes the dolls very much and they are bigger than what she’s expecting.…After she left, she send me another message and again telling me:

“Hey Jullie, I love the dolls. Thanks a lot and I’m sure my fiancé will love them too”

Via sms from Mindy

Then around mid-night, another message from her:

“Hi Jullie, my fiancé loves the dolls too. They r really sweet Thank u once again :)

Via sms from Mindy

I’m really happy that she likes the dolls very much. Ooooh, I love to hear this from my buyers… :) All my efforts paid off!!

Congrats! Mindy and TH… :)

Wedding Couple for Xuan’s friends

When Indian meets Japanese…. Unique match!

Xuan is Fang’s sister. Her friend, an Indian is getting married with his Japanese fiancé. She wanted to give them a pair of wedding couple. Xuan is very kind… I have two choices: A and B:

Choice A: Make my usual wedding dolls.

Choice B: More interesting, personalized the bride’s doll is in kimino.

I’ve decided to choose B since I was quite free last month and I wanted to do something different to add to my portfolios.

Let’s talk about the groom first… I think this is the darkest human doll I’ve made so far… Xuan showed me his photo, well, he has curls and sideburns. Hmm, most Indians have these… So, I’ve added a curl on the fringe and sideburns at the side. I hope at one look, can tell it’s an Indian….


For the bride, the challenge was on sewing the costume!

1st of all, I’m not familiar with kimono… Searched through wiki for kimono. Hmm, I’ve learnt something new: The sash that ties around waist is called OBI and at the back of kimono is not really a ‘pillow’, which I always thought it was, it’s actually knots.

2ndly, it’s NOT EASY to sew the costume at all!!! I’m not a seamstress and I never learn ‘proper’ sewing before, not to mention cutting the pattern. Thank God, I have friends who gave me thinkers. I’ve MADE IT and LOVE the result! Erhem, the kimono was hand-sewn… =P



I hope her friends will like them.

Thanks to Xuan for giving me this opportunity to try something new. Looking forward to make something special for her wedding too… :)

Wedding Couple for JY

JY wanted a pair of wedding couple for her wedding photo shoot….

Initially, she requested a crown for the bride’s doll… After seeing more new looks that I’ve added to my portfolios, she decided to choose a new style… Finally she decided to have more blings on the hair! :) 

“Thank you so much for d beautiful dolls. I like everything about them! Thanks!”
