Blythe pink pirate sheep hat on ebay


  A pink pirate sheep hat is up on ebay right now.  This will be one of my last few animal hats being listed up on ebay for awhile.  I might have some other ones going up there but that will not happen until  couple weeks later.  This does not mean I won't list anymore up on ebay but it will be for a short while before another one is up there.

Like with my other ebay auction, it will be for 1 day auction.

Ebay auction - Sept. 21, 2012


   This is just a quick announcement for a 1 day ebay auction that will be up on Sept. 21st, 2012.

It will be a pink sheep and no, it is not OOAK and not made with sheep-like fur.  The hat is made with more softer fur material that I don't often use for my blythe animal hats.

Here is the ebay link for the pink sheep hat:

About my etsy listing...

This is just a quick post regarding my etsy listing since I received few messages about them almost daily.  I thought this might be a faster way to save time and announce it publicly rather than replying to individuals over similar questions.

I do not want to be rude and not answer to messages but sometimes it is impossible to answer to so many with most of them being repeated questions so I thought this will be the best way.  Therefore, please do pardon me if I don't reply to messages related to these issues I am mentioning below from this point on.  I am not upset at anyone but just want to make it clear to avoid future problems.

-random listing: this means I will list my dolly items at random times.  I do not have a set time when I list them although I do tend to list them somewhere between 11am ~ 2pm PST.  I do try to spread out to different times but I am not always near my computer or online.

-no reserve: I am sorry but I cannot put a reserve for anyone as it would not be fair for those who are trying also to get something from my shop.

-daily listing: I do try to list dolly items up daily but sometimes life other than dolls (yes, it is possible) gets in the way and I may not be able to do so.  One other reason why I try to have daily listing is to make it more possible for those who want certain items to get a chance to do so.

One last note: Please be kind and considerate when commenting on my flickr posts.  Do avoid sale related comments on my flickr and absolutely no cuss words allow.  Words like 'damn' and 'shit' are okay but nothing more.

Thank you all for reading and understanding.  I will try to spread out my listing time more so those on the other side of the world won't loose sleep and also have a chance at these items.

Two adorable blythe size animal hats up on ebay


  I have placed 2 animal hats up on ebay.  Both listings are for 1 day only.  One is a baby blue sheep and the other one is a pink bear hat.  The materials used for both hats are not the usual sheep-like fur but more soft and costly materials.  These hats are not OOAK but are more rare and not often seen from my daily etsy shop listing.

Hope you guys like them and thanks for visiting!

Info regarding: pre-order of 5th round of blythe sheep hats


  Thank you once again for those who have love and support my little animal farm (animal hats for blythe).  Like I have mentioned a few times before on flickr and personal messages, I did not expect such great demands for them and I do appreciate each and everyone of you who like my work from the bottom of my heart.

I have tried my best to help those who wish to own a hat get one by listing them up daily on my etsy shop, putting rare hats on ebay and taking pre-orders but sometimes it is still impossible to reach this goal as I am just one person.  SO....I have decided that there will be a new rule for this round of pre-order which I will mention below.

*one customer per round of pre-order
*new rule: you can only place an order for this round of pre-order if you have NOT gotten any sheep hats from me before.  This is to help those who did not have fast fingers for my daily etsy shop update.  This only applies to the pre-order.  There is no restriction on my daily etsy shop listing.

How the pre-order works:
I will list a total of 4 pre-orders for the blythe size regular sheep hats with fur chin strap.  Time and date will be listed below.  Once you have successfully checked out and paid from etsy for the pre-order, please send me an etsy message and let me know the following information:

-what color for the hat
-what color for the face
-what color for the flower (if you have preference)
-what color for the interior polka dot fabric

**Sheep-like fur color choices:
-black, brown, cream and white

**Interior polka dot fabric choices:
-red with white polka dot
-pink with white polka dot
-baby blue with white polka dot
-lime green with white polka dot
-brown with white polka dot
-white with red polka dot
-black with white polka dot

**mouth color (felt material)
-white, cream, grey or mocha

Price: USD$30 + shipping for regular sheep hats (regular mail by default)
*if you prefer registered mail for outside of the US, please let me know after your purchase and I will send you invoice for additional fees (registered mail will be $12 on top of the regular postage)
**Although I haven’t had much problem with regular mail, I am not to be hold responsible for lost mail shipped via regular mail method


Time (I am in the US):
Sept 12th - 12:00pm (PST): 2 pre-orders available for regular sheep hats
Sept 13th - 12:30am (PST): 2 pre-orders available for regular sheep hats

**if something occur and I need to change the time, I will post announcement beforehand.

How long will it take to finish:
Once you have checked out via etsy and sent in payment with color details and info, I will try to have your hat finish within 5~7 days.  Once the hat is finished, I will send you a picture prior to shipping it out.

Ebay auction

Hello everyone

  I will be posting a ebay auction for 1 blythe bunny hat with fur chin strap.

No, this is not ooak type of hat but the fur used is softer and different than those of my sheep hats.  You can see from my flickr and previous work that I use these types of furs on my lati yellow animal hats.  The reason I prefer not to use them for blythe is due to the limited quantities I have and blythe head is rather big and used up a lot in just one hat.

So if you are asking is this type of fur hat for blythe more rare? Yes it is.  But if you are asking will this be ooak, then the answer is no.  I just prefer not to use them as often because I do not have much left and the store only restock them during winter time.  The material cost for these softer fur types is also higher/more expensive.

I will be listing a 1 day auction on Sept. 9th.

A little change.....for the greater good?!

I have received some messages regarding my random listing on my etsy shop.  Since I usually list them between 11 ~ 1pm PST, some folks from other side of the world were mentioning that it was hard for them to get a hold of the hats due to time differences.  I have given some thoughts about this so here is what will happen...

I usually make the items and as soon as they are finished with sufficient natural day light, I will list them up.  I guess it was easier for me to keep track and not have something stored or piled up on my sewing cabinets.  From now, I will put aside one or two hats that are finished with photo taken during day time and save them to list at a later time of the day.  It will still be random listing as I do not like to be restricted to certain time of the day to list my items.  This is because 1) I cannot guarantee I will be around my computer 2) it will be a good surprise for those that happens to be online at the time and 3) well, I just like random listing and am used to it.

With that said, there will be one white sheep hat heading up on my shop later today.

Oh! One more thing....I will have a ebay listing hopefully this weekend for either a pink or white bunny hat.  More info of that will be posted when it is ready.

Commission list

This is the current (on-going) commission list that I have moved from the old blog site.

I would like to clarify for those that aren't clear about the commission list that this list has been going on for a few years so this is not a new list just for blythe animal hats that I have been making.  And yes, the waiting time is long because I do not put a limit on the amount of items each person can get.  The reason I do not do so is because I feel it gives people who already waited so long a chance to get everything they want.  I have been debating about putting a limit on the amount per order recently only because the line will be able to move faster and the waiting time shorter.  For now, there is no limit/restrictions.

I will be contacting the next person (neomi_buttons) on the list later today or tomorrow.

A temporary new blog site for LaLaTroop

Hello old and new friends of LaLaTroop!

   Since I have been told that the old blog site I was using was causing problem for some people to view or access, I have decided to find another site that hopefully will be more stable and easy to use.  For now, someone recommended me to use 'blogspot' which is this site that you are seeing.  Everything is new for me here so please bare with me as I learn my way through posting here.

   I will be moving commission list and also my pre-order blythe hats (if available) info here for the time being.

   Thank you all once again for your love and support for LaLaTroop!
