My Elven Bloom Doll

There's a new rage all over Second Life, it's called BLOOM DOLLS by Emma Gilmour! These cute little avies have won the hearts of just about everyone. So many Second Lifers already have one or more of the dolls in their ballooning or overabundant inventories, I being one of them, hehe :) They are based on the real life Blythe dolls that are also all the rage. The dolls come in 6 girls skins and 2 boy skins with hair, clothing and accessories being separate. They do come with a few cute poses, which is nice. Their cost is 600L, so very reasonable. Here is the link to the store, which is called Sand and Surf Co: .

I've had so much fun with mine and the nice thing is, they can wear the clothes you already have in inventory if you don't want to have to buy new ones. As far as hair, I found that hair from Elikatira and most styles from Tukinowaguma work well with them. You have to fit them to your normal avie's head first, stretch them, and then resize them for your Bloom Doll's head. I decided I wanted to make my Bloom Doll an elf, imagine that! lol I also had to resize some elf ears for her. Just make sure that anything you resize and want to keep in its original size too, that you copy it before you resize (it's nice when the objects are both copyable and modifiable if you're using them for the dolls). It's so much fun to see what people have come up with when styling their dolls. Here is the Bloom Doll group in Flickr: . There is also a Photo Contest you can enter and is judged based on best styling. Please visit the store link above for detailed guidelines. Now, I know you're going to go out and buy one if you haven't already, so enjoy!
