I feel like I've just been cycling through my dolls recently just to have something to paint. Not really a bad thing. Practice and all that mumbo jumbo. It's starting to feel like the fruits of my labor are really paying off, though! What do you think? Being able to see improvement really makes things [...]
Photoshoot – Atticus
Atticus has been revamped (again!). Really pleased with how he turned out. The eyelashes are better. Still not as good as I want them to be, but he's getting there~
Doll Plans – Doll Chateau Snowborn
As I've mentioned in my last few posts, I'm hoping Snowborn will be here in the next month or so, but this leaves me ill-prepared as I haven't bought a single thing for him yet. Basically all I have going right now is a semi-fleshed out character idea and some picks for clothes. I'd mentioned [...]
A Post-Doll North… Post.
... (more than) a month later. YEAH, SO. It's hard to believe a month has passed since I flew to Canada. I really should've done this sooner but metaphorical poop hit the fan and sort of left me drained, to say the least. Biggest thing: I had a blast! It was so cool to be [...]
Doll North & Life Changes
So I'm going to Doll North in Ontario. SUPER EXCITED. I've never been to an actual doll convention before. Regardless of the fact that it's attached to Anime North, it's definitely it's own thing with as much as they have going on. This'll be our big trip for the year and, well, possibly the next [...]
Faceup Fun (Scarlett – SOOM Gena)
Something I always try to do when I get back into doll crafts is do a practice run before I get serious. While I do have a practice head, my first doll looked like she could use some attention. The last faceup I gave her in '05 wasn't bad, but it could be better. Kinda [...]
I’ve done it now.
Whelp. I did it. I put Snowborn on layaway through Mint on Card. I've been thinking about it all month and it's finally happened. My husband is really good to me. We spent most of our money on a trip to Canada for Anime North (and incidentally Doll North) and we were going to split [...]
Dolly Endeavors (Part 1)
With winter's end there's always a new spring of inspiration in me to do more 'productive' things in my hobby. I say productive like that because of course it's a hobby and I should be more concerned with enjoying myself than anything, but the most enjoyment I get is usually seeing improvement in my [...]
Doll Chateau Snowborn: Thoughts
So I put in my first order of MSC this year. ALSO some ZM finishing powder which I have been dying to try. That should be coming in on Friday, and I'm actually pretty stoked about it, but that'll be a different post. Regardless of whether I'm active in the hobby or not, dolls are [...]
New Year, New Me, Bla Bla Bla.
So it's hard coming back to this realizing there's been more than a 6 month gap in my last posting. Certainly not the first time it's happened, but still a bit jarring. I hadn't realized I'd been on such a long hiatus. There's not much to explain, as far as that goes. Money got tight, [...]
