Meet Alice Liddell, the baby of the Literature-Shelves:


Byul Hermine Alice in Wonderland

Alice is best friends with Anne of Green Gables, who is very impressed with her imagination... little suspecting that her stories from Wonderland are real. She has a mini-me doll she always carries with her..  She's still kind of overwhelmed by the strange and funny things she saw in Wonderland, and doesn't talk nearly as much as Anne does- but then again, few people do. Smile

She sometimes hangs out at Baker Street, where she attempts (repeatedly) to hire Sherlock Holmes with her allowance money "to inbestagate wundrland."  He won't take her seriously, but Doctor Watson tells her great war stories and Mrs. Hudson bakes some great raspberry tarts so she comes by pretty regularly.  She lives on my literature-themed shelves. Smile

She's about 5 or 6 years old, at most- possibly younger- so the other literature characters all spoil and baby her (especially Mrs. Hudson, who dotes on her.)

"Hi my name is Anna (Byul Rhiannon), I like to dress up and I collect ponies. People say I am high maintanance but I disagree, they just do not see the value of quality and making sure you get exactly what you want.

As my 'photographer' seems to be out of town alot lately I will sign myself up. I will persuade her to find some time with me on the weekends... She has neglected me for long enough now.  Besides: This is the one chance to stand in the limelight! I am made for this!

Hmm now let's see how I am going to break this to the camera girl..."

Oh, gosh, a contest just for us? It's like a dream come true!!!!

I'm Fanny (Byul Dumbo), and my most favoritest thing is making stuff for my friends. I'm a little afraid of heights, so I hope none of the photos involve high places. I like pretty dresses and all things cute and cuddly, and live with my bestest friend, Kasia, and her brother Ian. Oh, and this really cute boy just moved in upstairs with his sister--maybe if I do well in this he'll notice me!!!!

Um, hello? I'm sorry, I'm really shy, I don't get to see new people very much! Oh! So my name is Nerissa (Byul Tiger Lily), and the first thing people probably notice about me is my arm, I mean, not this one but the one that isn't there. A lot of the time people can be kind of mean about it: I don't think they're trying to be mean! They just don't understand, that's what my mother says. Like my birth parents, they thought I was cursed when I was born and they blamed the fae folk for it. And my mother heard them saying mean things about her and about me and she left her kingdom straight through the veil to the human world, and she took baby me straight home with her and that's how I became who I am, a mortal girl living in the world of the faeries. Time passes so very differently in my mother's world, but she says I'm about eleven in human-people years, and that means I'm old enough to go to the human world sometimes. It's pretty exciting and I guess things have changed a lot since I was a baby.

Anyway I really like singing in the bath (and some people joke that I should go live under the sea with the sirens, which is NOT funny!) I like animals, especially birds, and my favorite thing to do is read poems and make calligraphy: like if the poem is about a bird you write part of the poem and make it in the shape of a bird! I'm not that good at it yet, but I'm learning.

I'm entering a non-competing contestant, since I volunteered to be a judge. I'm leaning towards Lilith.  But I can change to someone else so I'm not duplicating one of the competing Byuls if someone else wants to enter a Lilith.


Euphemia is creepy, a vampire, and she doesn't worry about what others think of her.

Post  Pyrrha on Thu Jul 30, 2015 10:51 pm



This is Tiger Lily.  She's the only Byul I have (apart from a couple of Little Byul+, but I don't think I want to try using those for a competition!), so it has to be her, even though there's already a Tiger Lily in the running.  Sorry for the overlap.

She's perpetually confused; Peter Pan stands right beside her all day long with three Tinkerbells.  The Dal Tinkerbell is no longer Tinkerbell, having discarded her wings and fairy dress for normal garb, but there's also two tiny Tinkerbells, one an Angel Pullip and the other a mini-Blythe.  Great for Pan, but confusing for Tiger Lily.

Byul-tiful by Haley, on Flickr

I'm entering my Tiger Lily, Lyris!

Lyris is a spunky and girly little girl who loves dresses, skirts, and the color pink! She would never dream of even being caught in a pair of pants! She loves sweets and spending time with her cousin, Erasmus, who is more like a big brother to her.

(Sorry for entering Tiger Lily when other people already have, I've been planning on entering her since the day this was announced but I was waiting on her new eyes, and she's my only Byul! ^^)

"Excuse me? Is this thing working?" *taps screen* "Ahem, my name is Marvel. I've only been here about a week and the human has only unwrapped me and stuck me on a large soft surface. I haven't even tried on any clothes yet! In fact, I had to figure out the camera myself for this awful selfie. I adore all things super hero. I'm a bit of a tomboy but I sure don't like pants! Although some underpants might be nice, it's kinda chilly in here."

*please excuse my rushed entry, I haven't had a chance to work with Marvel (Siry) properly yet*

Updated the first post with our 14 lovely entrants so far! Don't worry if you are entering a model already entered - I'm glad we have so many dolls entered that we have more than one of some models.

I have and will be updating the first post in the thread with information, so be sure to take another look at it. Thanks.

First theme announced tomorrow!

Hi, this is Lorelai and...

- Let me say it! Let Lorelai talk by herself!

Ok, relax girl, Go on.

- I'm the Great Lorelai, king of ponies and unicorns and...

King? Shouldn't you be a queen?

- I'm what I wanna be mom, come on! ; A ;


Alright, great king, proceed.

- I like sweet pop corn and bubblegum! YAY!

That's all?

- Yeah, that's enough. o3o

So, this is Lorelai (byul Paulia) and as you can see, she's kinda nuts. Evil or Very Mad

11:31 PM!!  I've been debating if I'd have time or not, and I still don't know if I will, but I'll go with it anyway.  Today ended up being exceptionally busy though, so I didn't have time to bring out my girl for a quick photo. *Ack! and apparently my computer and/or Flickr has EATEN my only other photo of her.*  Photo... added!

Lilith can be kawaii too! by Kathryn Dodd, on Flickr
"Oh!  I am surprised to see you there."

Entry:  Lilith


Lilith is a 600 year old vampire in a babyfaced, 13 year old body. That eternally young face (and her fascination with cute and girly things) makes her the butt of some cruel jokes from her older family members. So despite being a vampire she tries not to be too unkind to others, even if they make her a bit hungry at times.  She says, 'while sometimes she might look a little odd, at least she doesn't need to bathe in the blood of innocents to keep up her complexion like some girls *cough* Elisabeth! *cough* do.'

Surprised Shocked Surprised

I would like to enter too! I just received my Byul Cocotte yesterday and I was at work the whole day today so I didn't even get to unbox and take pictures yet!

I will post a photo as soon as possible tomorrow!

Her name is Delphine.  Her favorite colors are purple and pink. She likes cats. She is shy with people and feels more comfortable with cats. Her hobby is to play the piano and to draw. She is a romantic. .
