My second BJD (ball-jointed doll) finally arrived! This is another one from Dream of Doll. I ordered her in March, but it took twelve weeks for her to arrive. Unfortunately, DoD was really swamped with orders due to their special event in January, so my order took an unusually long time.

In any event, she arrived safe and sound today. Before she was even ordered my mind was set to give her lighter hair and a bit of a punk look. She definetly has more “attitude” to her than Jaimee (my other BJD), whom appears more calm and kind.

I decided to name her Alexis. I’m not sure where the name came from, it just seemed to fit. So, as tradition, here are photos of the box opening. A storm rolled in right around the time I started. This, unfortunately, caused the lighting in my shots to change a lot.


Just like with Jaimee, Alexis was wrapped in several layers of bubble wrap and pillows.


I already had an outfit, wig and eyes waiting for her by the time she came. When you order one of these dolls you are able to make special requests for their face-up. For Alexis I requested blonde eyebrows since I knew I wanted her to have blonde hair. I think they did an amazing job! I must say, though, the wig I got for her is curled and a nightmare to deal with. The bangs were all over her face. She didn’t look too happy about it.


My natural light didn’t last long this time, so I didn’t get many photos, but I think she’s amazing! Exactly how I imagined her. I’ll take more photos soon!
