I have just received some wonderful clothing sets from Jooli from dollsvilleshop. This outfit is made for Blythe, but fit Momoko really well! I just couldn’t help it and took some pictures.

Name: Jane

This is my first Momoko, and the only one that’s not named after a Momoko owner. She’s named Jane Austen to honor my all-time favourite writer  Jane Austen I hope she gets some of her wit and irony!

Model: Midnight Crossing” Sekiguchi2006

She likes to:

She’s a writer herself! She likes to think of herself as an all-brains gal, but to be honest to the truth she indulges herself in a lot of  “not so intellectual” pleasures…

Name: Sylvie

As I have told in my other doll profiles, I have decided to name my firsts Momokos after the real-life people that have made me fall in love with Momoko. I love Sylvia Cola’s reroots and dolls and when I decided to buy a Hazy White the name popped in my head! After all Sylvie does wonderfuls reroots on Hazy White’s and probably she will end in her hands when I get bored of her white hair. I have also exchanged some mails with her and she is wonderful! Visit Sylvie’s flickr, her blog, and sylviecoladolls.com

Name: Gabriela

As I have told in my other doll profiles, I have decided to name my firsts Momokos after the real-life people that have made me fall in love with Momoko. Gabriela is named after Gabriela-gcrepe1
After I saw Hinamawari’s Momoko I started to search in Flickr for Momoko pictures! I was shocked by the awesome pictures by gcrepe1. It was because of her doll that I decided to buy this doll! So when the doll arrived I named her Gabriela, to remember the countless hours of joy spent at gcrepe1’s flickr, and her etsy shop selling  Momoko prints of her wonderful photography.

She likes to:

She likes to think of herself as a modest girl, but the truth is that she enjoys a luxury . A bit shy ( some people says dry) at a first encounter, if you get to know you will find a great friend

My dumpr

Name: Wendy

I’m really bad at naming my dolls! I keep postponing the decission and calling them NoName. I have decided to name my firsts Momokos after the real-life people that have made me fall in love with Momoko. Wendy is named after my dolly friend Wendy- Hinamawaridoll
Hinamawari is the only Momoko friend that I have meet in flesh and bone. We live nearby and sometimes we get together to take pics of the dolls. She brought a Momoko to our first gathering (I was Blythe-only), and altough at first I didn’t fell in love with her she has grown on me! I must say that without Wendy I wouldn’t have jumped into the Momoko World. Oh and we always have such fun!!!  Please visit her at Himawari’s Flickr, and see her original dolls at www.wendygital.com

Introducing momokos…

This week I will like to introduce you to my Momokos. 

Momoko is a japanese doll created  in  2001 by a Japanese software company called Petworks. She is an indie fashion doll that “reflects the lifestyle of today’s Tokyo”. In 2004 Petworks announced a “long holiday” for momoko. The reason was that they wanted to concentrate on other dolls as Mamemomoko, and on their main business (software). Soon after that they handed the doll over Sekiguchi that started production in  2005. Sekiguchi did some changes on the doll, but tried to keep her street-fashion style intact while selling her at more competitive prices. To this day Petworks keeps producing some dolls.
