2013 in Review and some resolutions

Looking back at 2013, I realized that in January of 2014... The Majokko Shop will be 2 years old!
I think we'll have to do something to celebrate!

There will be a giveaway for sure...
but is there anything else you'd like to see?

Anyhow, here is 2013 in review!
This year started with a resolution to take 1 picture a day... which I failed... but not too badly. I definitely took more than 365 pictures, that's for sure!

In February I received the wonderful gift drawing from the very talented George Panella, which was, and still is, the mascot illustration on this blog!

I got a new lens this month and spent some time playing with it... it's a great little lens and I love it!

Yotsuba started playing D&D... she's quite the DM (Dungeon Master).
In May, Pipit saw her plan to go to Acen come to fruition.
She made it, she collected things, she was happy.

Sonico arrived in June,
and proved to be an absolute lunatic.
This is about the same time I found Never Outgrew Toys and got the urge to
do more with my figma... hmmm...
guess what one of this years resolutions will be? -_-;;

I went Up North in July and took some DD girls with me. It was a lovely season for vacation, and also the month of my birthday!
I got a new doll stand this month that allowed me to accomplish some dynamic poses.
I'm still kicking myself for not having thought of doing this on my own.

I finished my first Pure Neemo reroot.
It turned out pretty cute... I'm working on reroot 2 as we speak.
Another trip Up North to see the changing colors, and watch the Salmon run...
Bambi Raili tagged along and got a lot of attention from passerbys!
A stained Neemo arrived in the mail and I decided to experiment with tattooing one of them.
So far so good, the tattoos haven't leaked or spread... so I think she'll be getting more!
After the Blinkydoll's Boutique Giveaway, I ended up with a really adorable Christmas tree for my girls (as well as a lot of other Blinkydoll's stuff that I just couldn't resist)... I'm officially addicted to the store and can't wait to see what else they release!


1. Photo a Day (Yes, we're trying this again):
Pretty self explanatory... and I'd say I'd do it all on Instagram (I'm littlebearries on Instagram too)... but Instagram is often glitchy as heck, so I'm just shooting to take one pic a day any way possible... to be shared on Instagram when the app is working, LOL. I'm sure I'll share some of them here too... maybe a weekly recap on Mondays?

2. More Photostories:
I *LIKE* telling stories... I think up stories all the time when I'm messing around with the dolls... but do I post them regularly? No. I suck at that. This year, more stories... and stories featuring all the dolls and figures around here, DD, Pure Neemo AND Figma.

3. One Tutorial a Month:
I'm always finding awesome online tutorials and thinking, "Oh, that would be cool"... then I pin them on Pinterest... THEN I forget about them. Well, this year I'd love to take and do one of those Tutorials a month, and document the process and results and share them here.
Or maybe sometimes I'll make up my own tutorial to share with you all.
Either way, One Tutorial a Month.

4. Prepare blog posts for the month in advance:
This would really help when things like The Icepocalypse happen.
I'd like to have the entire month of posts planned, if not pre-scheduled to post.
(let's face it, sometimes there's an event that you just can't pre-post... but I can at least be better prepared for the rest of the posts)

5. SEW!
I want to make clothes for the Dollfie Dream girls,
as well as for the Neemos... but it's not going to happen if I just sit here and stare at my fabric (trust me, I've tried this method... TOTALLY doesn't work).

What are some of your New Year Resolutions?

uh... I mean...
1/6 scale Pure Neemo Shimakaze

Haven't you always wanted a personified Battleship doll?
Still... she's pretty dart cute...

she'll cost you a pretty penny!
This girl is a 1/6 scale gal, aka, regular Pure Neemo size.

I love her little rudder shoes... and her headband thingie... and her little battleship pals (??)
Although I can only assume it is those pals, and her other accessories, that are adding about $90-110 to a regular Neemo Character doll Price tag 0_0

What does the fox say?

Perhaps, like me, you were duped into watching this.

It's really just a weird video...
I think the weirdest part for me though, is how well put together it is.

And I was even a tad more weirded out to find there is a children's book 0_0

 Whut the whut???
We all recognize the center girl, that's the Pipi Carat girl, Neemo,
but... Pico Neemo version on the right?

No idea what the doll on the left is (other than Ms. Neemo in another form)
Will they be releasing more like her?
Is she the start of a new line?
Who knows.
Who knows. *shakes head*

Review and Tutorial: Azone Doll Styling Wax

Today we're going to talk about Azone Doll Styling Wax!

First off let me say, it's much softer than I was thinking it would be.
When I think of wax, I think hard... but this is like a pleasant facial cream texture.

As far as how well it works... 
in my opinion... it's AWESOME!

It's light-weight, and doesn't leave any weird sticky or filmy residue in the doll's hair...
plus it smells pleasant. :)

If you're interested in ordering your own,
you can get it through Azone retailers...
but I bought mine HERE.

It's easy to use, and doesn't dry out too fast on your finger or anything.

With that being said, let's get on with the tutorial!

Sera will be our model today!
She looks worried, lol!

As you can see, behind Sera, the wax is pretty creamy... but not *super* soft or anything.

I just use my finger to apply it...

I dab a little on the tip of my finger...

Then splat it on Sera's head! HAHA!
Sera: HEY!

Sorry Sera... I smooth it in (still with my finger tip) and try to get a full, even coverage (very easy to accomplish)

Then I take a little comb and comb it in.

Ah! Getting better already!
Sera's bangs were a real mess from her travels,
and her longer hair was all mixed in with it...
so I just kept combing and adding more wax until...

YAY! You can make the hair shape into cute little points!
Sera: I don't like hair in my face...
Me: Ok, fine fine...

Sera: Thank you :)

Just a note:
As you comb the wax into the Neemo's hair, you'll probably have to add more... Neemos have pretty thick bangs, so to get the under hairs, just add a little more wax as you see hairs that don't seem to have any on them. Easy Peasy! :)
