Anna recently altered one of her dresses, you may view her handiwork here on her blog.
Naturally she had enough leftover material to produce a skirt for Usagi. Just Usagi.
It’s a lovely blue plaid skirt, made just for Usagi. Nothing at all for me.
I mean it’s been ages since the last time Anna made or purchased anything for me, but that’s not important right now.
Anyway, as with most of Usagi’s skirts lately, Anna has made this one terribly short. But I must say that the pleats are a nice touch. Paired with the sensible blue plaid, it is reminiscent of a sweet school girl uniform.
And it does look sweet on Usagi indeed.
But I still must know, why did Anna make her a skirt and not me.
It’s because I only had enough fabric for one “terribly short” skirt. Just one. And because Usagi is more in need of clothes (and because Hikaru refuses to wear mini-skirts without bribery) I thought it would be perfect this way.
And despite what Hikaru claims, it has not been that long since the last time she has received anything. Jealousy does effect her memory sometimes.
I am not jealous! I was only curious, and my memory is just fine thank you. Anna hasn’t made anything for me in almost two months (see Of Bjd Fashion: Pretty and Pink and Short?). And I didn’t need to be bribed to try it on.
Anyway, I shall be content in sharing in Usagi’s happiness over her delightful new skirt while I patiently wait for my turn to come. Because I am such a generous and kind hearted doll.
“Hikaru, I really want you to try on my new skirt too. It would look so cute on you. :)”
…But it’s so short…
What am I do to do?

It’s the first of the month, time for another Doll Owner’s Corner. When I, the doll owner, can talk about anything at all without the dolls butting in.
This month’s topic:
I gathered up another batch of behind the scenes photos for your amusement.
First up, this photo was taken when Usagi got her wig (see Of Bjd Hair: Another Wig Review and an Announcement).
Just like Hikaru, she got a balloon cap to wear to keep her wig on. They do work really well, but I still can’t keep a straight face when I put them on the dolls.
This next photo was taken before the wig, while I was trying on some tops I made for Usagi (see Of Bjd Fashion: Sweet Doll Tank Tops).
She was suppose to keep her arms up so I could put her shirt on her, but instead she decided do her best karate poses.
This photo is from when we got Sakura (see New Arrival: Mystic Kids Doll Review). I couldn’t decide if she looked bewildered or possessed in this shot. You decide.
The next photo was taken while trying on Sakura’s wig (see Of Bjd Hair: Reviewing Three Wigs?).
It would have been a great picture except for Hikaru’s skirt on the right and Usagi falling over on the left and flashing her shorts.
And here’s the original group photo of all the dolls (plus a head) with wigs. Sakura’s wig kind of needed some taming.
Speaking of taming doll hair, as always the toothbrush/doll hair brush is always at hand during photoshoots.
And as always, it manages to pop up in at least one otherwise good shot. It strikes again here in this photo of Usagi checking out a magazine (see Bjd Lifestyle: Haute Doll Magazine, The Bjd Issue).
This one is from the Party City post (see Finding Doll Props: At The Party Store?). Both Hikaru and Sakura started to fall over. I caught Sakura just in time, but Hikaru wasn’t so lucky.
Sadly, Sakura’s luck ran out when it happened a second time in this shot.
That’s all for now, but there will always be more photos and doll fun in the future. Look forward to it.

As the name implies, they sell supplies for birthday parties and other celebrations. The idea of finding suitable doll sized items at such a store seems odd, but Anna says she got the idea from watching a video from My Froggy Stuff. I will try to be optimistic about the matter.
Anyway, let us see what sort of treasures Anna has found.
First we have various small notebooks and notepads. They would be absolutely perfect for writing down important thoughts and details.
Pity that they are too tiny for my purposes. Sigh. I suppose they would be more suitable for a small fashion doll.
They will make a lovely present for Cerise, the charming little doll belonging to Anna’s niece (see Of Bjd Fashion: Dresses to Sew and a Tutorial).
As for myself, I may be able to make use of this larger notebook Anna manage to discover. The scale is perfect, though it does appear to be a phone book.
Of course these might be of use to me as well. They are small memo pads.
The size is fitting and the design is delightfully whimsical.
Don’t get any ideas Hikaru, I bought those for myself. They were just too cute to pass up.
Fine then, the design is too childish for me anyway.
Speaking of children, there is this beautiful toy ball that is probably intended for our dear little Sakura.
After all, who else but a small child would be interested in such a thing.
“Oooh, that is so pretty! Can I hold it? :)”
Alright, Usagi is but a child at heart. But mature individuals such as myself have no need for such toys.
“Are you sure about that, don’t you want to play with it? It’s really pretty.”
It’s nothing but a ball. An iridescent simmering ball, full of sparkling stars….twinkling in ever color imaginable…..Ohh.
…Um, no! Certainly not, I have no interest in playing with such things.
“Ohh, what a pretty ball. Can I play with it too Usagi?”
“Sure Sakura. Hikaru says she doesn’t want to, so we have it all to ourselves.”
“What’s wrong Miss Ghost Lady, I thought you liked pretty things?”
Hikaru, is this going to be like the stuff animal thing? (see Ball Jointed Dolls and Plush Toys)
Sigh, more stuff for the “children”.
Actually I bought those for myself too.
A sheet of Hello Kitty stickers (that were on clearance!) and a Hello Kitty pencil sharpener.
“How cute! I wish I could have some stickers.”
If you behave yourself Usagi, I may share some of the smaller ones with you. They are the perfect size for dolls.
Now here is something I can definitely use. It is a delightful set of water color paints. Just imagine all the great works of art I can create, that is as soon as I learn how to paint.
Of course there is some sensible options for our dear Sakura as well. A sandwich and a wholesome apple, a perfect lunch for our growing little girl.
“Miss Ghost Lady, can’t I have some ice cream too?”
Sakura dear, it’s not good for you to have too many sweets.
“Don’t worry, you get some too. Hikaru is just hogging the rest because she loves sweets too much and doesn’t want to admit it. :)”
That simply is not true Usagi! Though I do delight in such delicacies I do not hoard them.
Anyway, I am very much impressed with the wide selection of useful trinkets found at this “party store”. I would also very much like to see more of their wares in the future, preferably in person.
If only Anna would allow me to accompany her on her shopping excursions. Maybe someday, but for now I am at peace.
