Like most, I have poured over updates and reserve pages for brands, both indie and established, seeking any new print or piece that I would squee at or cringe at the very sight of.
I will say that baby had a very good year for releases, mainly were a win for me so it is difficult to choose something other than Baby or Alice. I have re~evaluated my favorites list from over the years and simply know they are probably my top favorite brand.
However, there is always room for any brand in my closet as long as I think the piece is pretty!
So without further ado, this is my list of TOP TEN releases from 2013.
My Sweet Mate Kumya's Trick or Treat series
Merry Making In The Ghost Town series
Alice In Mixworks! series from St. Baker 221B x LIef
Soirée Of The Beginning Of My Memories series

Not all of the bad are terrible, some I just don't like, others I wonder what the designers were thinking. Rounding it all out 2013 wasn't quite a bad year for releases. I didn't add all the greats or all the bad or terrible ones but these are the ones that stick out most in my mind.
So Lolis and Gents, it is now the last of 2013 and I bid you adieu for now and see you soon next year, hopefully it will be just as interesting.
Happy New Years Frillies!
