This is the first time I've actually put so much thought and effort into one doll. Lou, full name Loucious Cedrick Ferre, is one of my favorite characters. Yes, Beetlejuice was an inspiration. I won't even deny that. That's not all he is, however. He's got one of the most fleshed out backstories of any [...]
Lou is (very close to) Complete! (IoS Chaos w/new 70cm body)
(I may have posted this more than a month ago on DoA and forgot to post it here. I'm getting married the first week of next month so my head isn't quite screwed on right at the moment, haha.) I was so excited when I managed to get my hands on a Chaos head during [...]
My body is (almost) ready.
The time is almost upon us... Soon.
Open Cage – Merriwether (SOOM Amber) & Balthazar (SOOM Chrom)
Oh, my talking bird Though you know so few words They're on infinite repeat Like your brain can't keep up with your beak. And you're kept in an open cage So you're free to leave or stay. Sometimes you get confused Like there's a hint I am trying to give you. The longer you think, [...]
Dollzone Box Opening! (Heavy Rain x2 & Miss Kitty)
So back during the heavy rain event, I resolved myself to utilizing the opportunity for free things and knocking a doll off my wishlist, then having that be the last purchase of the year. It wasn't... BUT THAT'S NEITHER HERE NOR THERE. It's been about 5 months since I hit the 'confirm order' button on [...]
After 5 months of waiting... It's finally happening. C'MON HEAVY RAIN AND MISS KITTY! GET HERE ASAP!
A Caged Pixie (Piyoko – Bobobie Pixie)
I hate hearing people call a sculpt or company cheap, trashy, or downright ugly. Though I will admit that sometimes the less expensive sculpts have their own issues to deal with, the saying "a bad carpenter blames his tools" comes to mind. We heard it a lot in photography classes, because you'd always have that [...]
Immortality of Soul FINALLY brought 70cm bodies back! (Plus other news)
It's been a long time coming. OVER A YEAR after they started talking about sculpting a new 70cm body, it's finally here! And it appears to have been worth the wait. Oh la la! Flashing back to late May/early June 2014, IoS made an announcement that they were discontinuing all their sculpts and once the [...]
From the Ashes (Scarlet – SOOM Gena)
So in previous blog posts, I've mentioned my poor neglected SOOM Gena. This was the first doll I ever saved up for. I was only 16 with a minimum wage part time job, and I scrimped every penny I could spare. You wouldn't believe my excitement when this doll finally came home the day after [...]
Staying the same – Soom Chrom
I like to imagine Balthazar watches the seasons change and silently wonders why nothing changes for him. No death, no rebirth, just the same sensations and feelings (if you could consider them that anymore). Either way, he's pretty expressive for a doll. You catch him at the right angle and he can look however you [...]
