My Momoko Journey

You briefly met Momoko on Halloween. She’s my latest doll craze, and has inspired me to create a lot.

I’ve found lots of cute, scale accessories and furniture for Momoko.  I’ve loved creating tiny models ever since childhood, ranging from HO trains to school dioramas to 1:12 scale minatures. The little details I think to include make me happy. Now, I’m doing my most ambitious challenge yet: building a small sewing shop roombox for her, complete with roof, attic, and front porch. I’ve assembled dollhouses from kits, but I haven’t ever drafted plans, formulated a construction process (I always follow instructions, even when assembling flat pack furniture) or cut much wood.

Currently I’m working on the diagrams for the display and determining the assembly steps. While this is still in the theoretical stage, to encourage myself to continue, I’ve started purchasing the items I know I’ll need, and doing fun things like picking out the furnishings, decor, and color schemes.

As I build this, I’ll post updates to show how the project is coming along. You can also follow on Instagram, #mymomokojourney.

 

 

 

Happy Halloween 2017!

Meet Momoko, a 10.5″ jointed fashion doll from Japan. I’m just begun collecting and creating for her, and plan to share my craftables here on the blog. You can follow her “settling in” on Instagram #mymomokojourney.
