Hey everyone, today I’m showing you the DIY dollhouse kit that I think is perfect scale for Nendoroid, Cu-poche and Calico Critters. This one is RoLife Lisa’s Tailor.
I also filmed how I build this dollhouse kit. Please watch the video!
When I received this , the first Nendoroid that I thought about is Nendoroid Tomoyo Daidoji. She is Sakura Kinimoto’s best friend in the Cardcaptor Sakura series and she loves to sew costumes of Sakura.
Building this kit is a lot easier than RoLife’s Cathy’s Flower House DIY Dollhouse. The reason why it took me so much time to make this is I did a lot of modifications and repainting. I like my dollhouse kit to be unique and different from the others. Being able to modify the kit is something that RoLife has to offer to its customers.
In this kit, I decided to paint it with light colors such as white and mint green.
Of all the dollhouse kits I made, this tailor shop is one of my faves. Seeing the parts brings me back to the old days when my grandma and mother use this vintage sewing machine. When I was a little girl, my mom sewed me my dresses with that same looking sewing machine. She even sewed cute dresses for my dolls back then. I didn’t get that skill from her, I’m not very good at sewing.
The dollhouse kit is filled with lots of tiny details and I made sure that it is close to real ones.
Rolife Lisa’s Tailor Dollhouse miniature includes a variety of materials such as fabric for the set. Wood, fabric, and thread add realism to the project. If you like your dollhouse rooms to look realistic like me, then this kit is for you. You can paint them according to your liking and style.
I only used poster color in painting the parts because that’s the only available I have at the time.
The kit also includes paper cut-outs to complete the tailoring room and other miniature pieces like the scissors. I also added a board for inspiration instead of using their wall frame cut-outs.
I cut old Cosmopolitan magazine, paste it on the cork board, and ta-dah!
Just like other dollhouse kits, this also includes LED light. It looks cozy with the lights on. If I can shrink as small as Nendoroid I would love to hang out at this place and learn how to use that classic sewing machine.
The only negative about this kit is that it’s too cramped BUT you can adjust it the way you want. If you’re into toy photography, you can just re-arrange the parts to get the right composition. Plus, you will love the many miniatures that you can use for your future photo shoots.
As I mentioned earlier, the scale is perfect for Nendoroid, Cu-poche, Petite Blyth, and Calico Critters. Nendoroid measures approximately 10cm in size, while Cu-poche is approximately 11cm.
Here is Good Smile Company Nendoroid Tomoyo Daidouji ready to make a dress for Sakura. The chair is a bit small for her but I managed to make her sit still with my balancing trick and a LOT of patience. 😉
Here is Kotobukiya Cu-poche Tsukiko is about to find her new hobby.
Here is a Petite Blythe Red Riding Hood and her costume seems so perfect in this set. Classic one.
I really loved this dollhouse kit from RoLife. Aside from the fact that it works well with my figures, I also love the design and the miniatures along with it.
Making it is a bit tricky so If you bought your own kit like this and seem lost, you can watch my video for reference.
Would I recommend it? Yes, definitely.
