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

She likes to take walk in the countryside after the rain. She is always daydreamming and doesn’t want to grow up!

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.
