I’ve been doing a bit of shopping for them and I am at the point where I’m happy with the way they look (for the most part).
I bought a wig from Mimiwoo.com for Dakota. The wig was made specifically for Volks 1:6 scale Dollfies and was a bit overgrown for for him. I was expecting this, though.
After some hair surgery, it finally looks right! Dakota FINALLY looks like the Dakota I’ve always imagined.
And just out of curiosity, I put the wig on Petunia. Petunia makes an adorable little boy! SQUEE!
As for clothing, this was what I’ve been buying for the dollies from various sellers on Ebay. Barbie’s Kelly (kid sister) and Tommy clothing (and shoes) is so much cheaper than the handmade stuff on Etsy and (unfortunately) in some cases, better made.
Still, never in a million years did I think I’d ever buy anything Barbie for myself. Funny how things work, eh?
Overall, the Kelly and Tommy clothing fit the dolls really well. Some pieces are too big for Petunia; some pieces are too tight on Dakota, but between the two of them, I’m able to use almost all of the clothing and shoes.
Petunia trying out a CUTE little outfit. I must say, the pink really suits her… and the bird on her head suits her too. (Birdy is from a swap with Fran)
And just for more SQUEE, here’s Petunia looking cluelessly adorable.

Dakota’s wig looks great!
And finding good clothes is indeed a little difficult or rather expensive 🙂
I tend to swap them against mini food ^^
That is something I need to start doing too!
Looking good, Dakota! I always knew Ann would take care of you; she just didn’t know what would be right for you and Petunia until she got to know you better. (You know, with multiple identities, you can always say the other one did it if mischief is discovered . . .)
It’s weird how it works. When I first have them try something on, I almost always hate it.. but after giving it a few hours, taking pictures, etc… I find that I LOOOOOVE IT! It’s weird.. !
Petunia is too precious for this world. Secretly, she wants to have short hair!
Maybe! I’m actually seriously considering getting another Belle (boy Petunia) so she can have a brother!
Seriously, these dolls will be the death of me.
this website is also a very good one to get the prettiest dolls at the lowest prices. just saying.
Thanks for leaving such a lovely compliment on my blog about my first (and surely not the last lol!) BJD Dimphy 🙂
She waves to your little ones and wants to say Hi to Dakota and Petunia 😉
I just love them the tiny BJD’s are way too cute… so I will probably spam her a lot on my blog lol!
The Sylvanian families are Dimphys friends they have also a very high ‘Awwww’ level 😉 can’t wait to see more of your BJD’s now…
p.s. I have bought exactly that same dress, that Petunia is wearing, a while ago for Dimphy 🙂
Not a problem Jollie! Like I said, I love seeing more miniaturists take up BJDs as well! They are too cute and I love sharing this hobby with others. And trust me, you WILL end up spamming Dimphy all over your blog. It takes me great restraint from turning my blog into Dakota and Petunia’s play land!
PS. aren’t the barbie clothes just awesome for dollies?! love it!
