I am really chuffed to have been featured in our local newspaper this week, so exciting! Even more exciting for me was that my 2 favourite Blythe girls took center stage! ūüėÄ

I haven’t had chance to scan the article onto my computer¬†yet however, you can read it online here and see how it looks in the paper from this quick photograph I took on my phone – look how lovely and big the photo of Christmas (Rainy Day Parade) and Tuppence (Miss Sally Rice) is!

Christmas & Tuppence are well chuffed at being in the newspaper!

I was very nervous about the interview and completely freaked out when the Head of Content wanted to send a photographer around to my house to photograph me with my dolls! Needless to say, I politely declined the photographer offer and sent across some of my own pics LOL I am fairly sure everyone involved with the article thinks I am completely potty!!

So many people have complimented the article that all my fears as to, how I would come across, what spin would be put on it and whether or not I would be portrayed as a crazy lady, have been put to rest ūüėÄ

I would like to thank Robert Zarywacz (@RobertZ) for the time he put into the article and for contacting me in the first place!

With all my excitement, I have completely neglected the My Little Customs Birthday Celebration Promotions and so, to make it up to you, how about a double whammy over the weekend? 15% off all Saran hair and a surprise FREE GIFT when you spend £16 or more!!

To claim the 15% off, enter the coupon code:¬† YAY15¬† at the checkout ūüėÄ

Happy Shopping!

NEW! Thatching tutorial ^_^

This video covers how to thatch a parting / part line on your rerooted doll – enjoy! ūüėÄ

I am super duper excited, I have been approached with a great offer and of course, I was thrilled to say YES!!

What offer I hear you cry? Well, I am proud to say that, after many weeks, I can officially announce that: katsilkdealer

My Little Customs is the Sole UK & European Authorised Katsilk Distributor 

 

YAY!!

I am hoping you will join me in celebrating and to get you all in the party spirit, how about some special offers??

FOR THE ENTIRE MONTH OF AUGUST (yes, the ENTIRE month!) the following AMAZING promotions will be storming ahead!

 

  • A simply WHOPPING 20% OFF ALL SARAN excluding XL Format size saran & 20 hank ongoing promotional offer*¬†

This brings the cost of one skein of Katsilk Saran down from the already great price of £3 to a teeny tiny £2.40 per pack!!

 

*XL Format sized saran? What is this? This, ladies and gents, is another brilliant product which is brand new and literally just arrived with me this morning!

  • My Little Customs is now stocking XL Format sized saran. As I am rather over excited today, I will be adding this to the site at a special introductory price of a mere ¬£7 per pack!

You get an awful lot of hair in an XL Format skein, just look at how much you get compared to a standard sized hank!!

 hank comparison

The XL Format is a massive 31 inches long and weighs 1.5 ounces! The standard format is 18 inches long and weighs only 0.6 ounces.

Ideal for Blythe, Tonner, Gene, Tyler and all other larger dollies or, for all you super savvy savers who have spotted that you can get almost 3 times the amount of hair as in the standard pack – just imagine how many Sindy, Barbie, Fleur and other fashion sized doll heads can be rerooted from just the one skein!

For now, there are 17 XL Format colours available, the full range of colours will be available shortly.

 

  • And as if all that wasn’t enough, how about throwing in a little free shipping to the mix? Free shipping? Yup!

Spend just £14 or more and get FREE SHIPPING!

Have I gone completely mad? Possibly. Should you take advantage of all these amazing saran deals? MOST DEFINITELY!!

More Katsilk product ranges will be coming soon so keep your eyes peeled!

Evening everyone,

I am thrilled to finally announce that the polypropylene hair is now in stock!

I am stupidly excited to have a BRAND NEW stock line, I am a hair addict ūüėÄ

I am sure you all have many questions about the polypropylene and I will do my best to answer them.

PP colour range

 

What is polypropylene?

Polypropylene looks and feels exactly the same as Nylon, if I called it Nylon you wouldn’t know it was anything different! (All apart from 4 colours, I shall get to those in a little while)

I have not yet had a chance to properly “play” with it so am going purely on how it feels straight from the packet, alongside the “official” spiel about the Polypropylene.

The colours are AMAZING, really unusual and unique. They are just as soft and shiny as the Nylon so I promise you will love it!

 

Can Polypropylene be boil permed?

The “official” answer: 99% sure that yes it can. Toy manufacturers curl it and style it all the time so if they can do it, so can we! Factory styling is always done using heat.

My personal answer:I have not yet tried it as it has literally just arrived with me, I have only got as far as fawning over the colours and photographing it. This weekend I am planning to do a reroot with it at which point I shall try both methods of curling, both air drying and boil perming. I shall report back with photos and results shortly!

 

Can I reroot using both Nylon and Polypropylene on the same doll? Yes ūüôā

 

If I reroot the same doll using both Nylon and Polypropylene together, can I boil perm it? Again, 99% yes, both Nylon and Polypropylene should react the same way, however, I have yet to put this to the test!

 

Can I request a blend of a Nylon colour with a Polypropylene colour? Yes! You can blend the 2 types of hair together, that is not a problem.

 

OK, what about the 4 colours you mentioned earlier?

This is based on my first impression, this may change once I have had a play with the hair!

The 4 matte colours, Caliente, Daring, Hypnotic and Frivolous feel slightly different to the rest of the Polypropylene range.

They are heavier and have a slight greasy feeling, similar to Saran. However, the fibres are a little drier, perhaps a slightly heavier denier? If you have tried Pinky Pinky or Nitro Lime Saran you will understand what I mean!

These 4 colours are the only ones which I would say are not EXACTLY like the Nylon, although the colours are fab and the quality of the hair is second to none ūüôā

Right well, all this is purely my personal first impression, the quality seems exceptional and I am impressed with the Polypropylene ūüėÄ

Expect further updates soon and I hope you are all as excited as I am about having the Polypropylene as a new addition to the My Little Customs line!

Forgot to mention this in my last post as I was rather over excited by my nylon arriving! LOL

Yesterday I was tinkering and have made a second attempt at natural iris chips for Blythe – please excuse the photos as it was rather dark in my office when I took them yesterday evening!

I am still not 100% happy with them but am loosely toying with putting them up for sale if there is enough demand – they were made using PF100 Clear Chips ^_^

clicking on the images will take you through to my Flickr page for a larger view

natural iris eyechips for Blythe made by me!

They look much better when in the Blythe sockets!

This photo is from my first attempt, last May!! (gosh time flies!)

Which type do you prefer? I think I prefer my most recent ones but I just don’t know!

Have you seen the new gallery which is crammed full to the rafters with photographs of all the stunning reroots that have been sent to me, all using My Little Customs re-root hair? 

It is absolutely AMAZING! A veritable feast for the eyes,  a rainbow of beautiful bevvies!

Grab a cuppa, take a few moments from your day to take a peek REROOT GALLERY
