Hello, long time no see! I'm happy to announce I wasn't run over by a train, mistakenly arrested, lost in the wilderness or eaten by runaway zoo tigers! Instead of lame excuses, here is a picture by hubby (concept and execution) and some useful (I hope) resources for all you doll artists :)
Recap: I like customized play dolls and fashions for them. Therefore, my searches for craft supplies are related to sewing, repainting, hair etc. I don't know much about art dolls or furniture/dollhouses, but some items, such as brushes, have uses for everyone! Here is everything I dug out of my bookmarks.
All these shops, as far as I can remember, offer international shipping. Some of you may find better deals at local suppliers who ship internally. I put an asterisk (*) next to shops I've purchased from myself.
My Little Customs - doll hair and misc supplies.
RestoreDoll - rerooting and repainting supplies.
Retro Dolls - doll goodies with a focus on doll hair.
Dollyhair - microchips for industrial robot arms. Ha, just kidding, of course they sell dolly hair! Plus some repainting supplies.
Micromark - everything for model makers, and I mean everything! Quality paints, miniature brushes, tools, adhesives and more. Aerosols and other hazardous items are shipped only to continental US. This shop was recommended to me by a friend.
The Junky Spot - articulated doll bodies of many sizes, as well as BJD accessories and some repaint supplies.
Mimi Woo - a variety of doll craft supplies, as well as complete BJDs and other dolls. Free shipping!
Born Pretty Store* - they say they are selling nail art supplies, but those are really doll supplies! Affordable mini brushes, rhinestones, studs, glue, nail files and buffers. Free shipping.
Little Trimmings - for clothes: trims, fabrics, leather, tools...
Minidolls - miniature sewing supplies, metal accessories, patterns and even millinery (hat making) supplies!
Zipper That Doll - mini zippers, velcro and other solutions for removable doll clothes.
Volcano Arts - mini eyelets and tools for them
Quietfire Design - another place for tiny eyelets and other goodies.
Eyelet Outlet* - yet another shop for eyelets and brads. Great variety.
Jewelry Findings On Line - I can't not add this one simply because it's the only place where I saw mini cameos that don't cost an arm and a leg! For the record, mini cameos can be found on Etsy for 3-5$ a piece.
Legendary Tutorials - a forum where some of the most helpful people used to hang out. I found answers to all my doll questions and some awesome friends there!
My Froggy Stuff - the basic place to start all your doll crafts.
Fashion Doll Stylist - sewing patterns for 1:6 dolls and tips on clothes construction for any size of doll.
Fashion Doll Shoes - microchips for industrial... ah, never mind. Self-explanatory :)
This is all for now! I hope to revisit this post with more links and asterisks ^^
I'm also preparing another post with things that happened during my absence, there were a lot! You are free to contribute with more links (no USA-only though) and if you liked hubby's photo, tell me and I'll make him take pictures for some upcoming posts :)
