first commissioned faceup!

Hey everyone! In case you didn't know, I actually run a very small Monster High repaint and BJD faceup shop called Darjeeling Aesthetics. Today I just completed my very first commissioned faceup on a Resinsoul Xu for a dear friend of mine. I've been practicing a lot on my Corin head and I'm glad I can finally put my skills to use for something other than my own practice heads  :゚。+━ヾ((○*´∀`*))ノ゙━+。゚:

Here's my pic spam:

Critique is heavily encouraged! Please let me know what I can do to improve my skills and grow as a faceup artist! Also, I still have a few slots open for July so please send me a message at if you're interested! This is probably the last month that I'll be offering $15 faceups so hurry hurry (。・ω・。)ノ

Be very careful when helping other people with their doll plans. Be very, very careful. Otherwise you might end up wanting everything you're recommending to them...

Yesterday my friend was doing some casual planning with Oasisdoll's Naomi and I decided to chip in with some shops for wigs, clothes, etc. and stumbled upon Kaleido, the Taobao store I bought Lenny's wig from. Let's see what they have in stock!

I think I'm probably going to end up buying the wig on the right for Lenny. She does need a new one after all, and her birthday's in September...

These dresses are so cute! I think I'm going to have to add either one of them into my order. Gosh I don't know... Kaleido has such excellent styling with their products, it's so difficult to say no to anything they have in store. It doesn't help that they seem to follow a gyaru/aomoji style with their wigs and clothes (one of their BJD dresses is modeled after the one spo cat dress!) which makes things even harder for me! I hope my cousin gets her Taobao order set up soon so I save a little on shipping costs... (ノ)´∀`(ヾ)

summer doll crushes

It's nice that I don't have school or work this summer but one bad thing about it is that I get all this extra time on the internet to fawn over dolls that I can't quite afford yet. I'm wondering if you can spot a common trend among the kinds of girls I like...

new licht releases!

Happy July, everyone! The days are getting hotter and hotter. I'm not even in SoCal right now, I probably shouldn't be complaining about the heat. While I could go on about how awful it gets each day I do have some good news! Licht has a few new wigs up in the shop and they are absolutely beautiful! I just missed the last Licht GO and hopefully the next one will run around before they sell out of these wigs :(

The pink "vanilla" color is my absolute favorite. I have no idea what I'd do with it, but I am definitely going to try and get it... somehow.
