Tulabelle and the IT LED Display Case

Pomp & Circumstance Tulabelle

If you're a collector who likes to debox your stuff, it's often just as important to have that perfect display case to showcase your collection. Months ago, Integrity Toys offered a chance to order some LED display cases that I couldn't pass up. They arrived a couple of days ago. They're roughly 23"Hx11"W, much taller than the normal 12" dolls that I collect. These are acrylic cases, however, and can easily be cut up to your desired height with the proper sharp cutter, should you choose to do so. The black top and bottom base just reattaches right back on and under the acrylic walls.

(Testing 16" Tulabelle doll in case with the protective wrap still on the acrylic sides.)

I personally like the height of this case. I have a few dolls over 16" in my collection that never get enough attention despite their gigantic stature. My 11"-12" dolls are camera hogs so the big ones rarely ever make an appearance in photographs. I thought this was the perfect time to test how great it would be if they were individually showcased.

It's looking fantastic, I must say! I got these awesome doll kimonos from an Ebay seller about five years ago. She did such a wonderful job on them! Click HERE to see the first time I photographed one of these kimonos on an AvantGuard doll. They were actually meant for Ellowyne Wilde. I don't have any Ellowyne dolls but I've seen her body and she's not as shapely as the 16" FR gals. The beauty about kimonos in general is they're not form fitting so my girls can get away with them and they still look magnificent!

Bam! Do they look pretty in those cases side by side or what? I did top up the dolls' bases with another base about 2"H to center them because there was still quite a bit of headroom. It works out since the kimonos are long.

Display cases like these are totally worth every penny. And they're so easy to assemble. Plus, who doesn't appreciate those lights? They give the dolls that extra something something. Now, where to put them....

For anyone interested, you can now follow me on Instagram. The link is on the side panel. I misplaced my good camera charger so I've been using my crappy phone camera when the doll snap craving hits.

Dia de Muertos with Little Nunu

Little Nunu at Evergreen Brick Works Toronto

It has been a while since Little Nunu had shared her travels. Yesterday, she's had enough with being carried around and not having her photo taken. I finally obliged during an afternoon trip to Brick Works with a friend to check out the Mexican Day of the Dead celebration.

It turns out that Little Nunu doesn't scare easily. She loves the colorful Dia de Muertos decorations just as much as I do! We even got to watch a Mexican live band! 

And what's a celebration without chocolate?

Happy Halloween everyone!
