Photos are not mine. They are from Dollmore.

Oh my god, How adorable is that widdle face!? I spotted this guy on DOA (They were not sure if he was on topic or not). Normally I don’t usually check out Yo’s other than Volks Yo’s (not a snob , I swear. I was never into the size until recently. I have my two little cuties and I thought I was all set… until now)but I seriously love his face. Only problem he is really a she. She is a Mia’s baby doll Aga. Normally for the bigger boys this would bother me but I’m thinking for the little guys, not so much. Her body is so far from being anatomically correct that anything can go with this little one… so to me she is a he and I will refer to her as such:p I’m no where near able to get him at the moment but he will be going on the wish list. Maybe there will be another oni running around and causing a ruckus with the other two:3

More crap behind the cut… lot of ramblings More»

For the first time last month I used a Japanese shopping service or agent and my order came in today \o/. On Usamaru Furuya blog he had been advertising t-shirts with his own designs that were being made and sold through a site called Tee Party. I wanted so see if I could purchase a few but to my discovery Tee Party does not ship internationally and it states so quite clearly in English on their web site ;A;. So after doing some whining to my doll circle on G+ I received some good advice on where to go. I decided to try Noppin this time around. Their communication was pretty fast (and very pleasant… a lot of “thank you!”‘s :3). Right after I paid for my purchase they made the order and in just a couple of weeks (not even that long to be honest) I was told that my order was ready to be shipped. Very easy… too easy (this was one of my fears). My shirts came today and I love them. They are well made and the printing is clear and sharp (unlike my night time photo above… sorry about that). I would totally use the service again… I know that Unoa boys can be purchased through them when they are available for preorder… but seriously I really should not even think about that just yet-_-… this is what I feared.


So to distract myself from the disaster that was episode 24 of T&B (yeah you may have seen my post on the other blog) I’m trying to keep myself busy. Working on Nekocon merch as well as some personal doll projects. One of the projects I’m working on currently is with another lovely collector and artist. Not going to spill the beans just yet (soon though… once everything gets rolling). I’m trying to put a list of tutorials together but I’m not sure how far back I should begin. So here’s what I want to know:

Knowing the doll related projects I’ve worked on in the past what would you like to learn? As for knitting, do you want to start from beginning (what types of cast ons, stitches, knitting in the rounds techniques that I do) or do you want to see me jump ahead with specific patterns (mohair sweaters not included… sorry folks), pattern alterations, micro knitting, ect? Are there wood based projects (wood turning, construction) or casting projects you’d like to see (though despite the fact that I’ve been casting professionally for 10+ years. It’s all self taught and primitive. I can direct you to links or I can just show my approach)? Are their things that I’ve never posted or never claimed doing that you would like to see. I have a huge list of things I would like to attempt and I’m always willing to give something a go. If it’s something you want to see done in doll scale I’ll see what’s involved and give it a try. If it works out, great. If not at least you’ll see what not to do:p I will totally be your guinea pig. Please give me your feedback. I would love to hear from as many people that see this.

Just a quick note, I’m talking about free tutorial, by the way. It’s all in fun and to share:3

Tsuyoshi: Haru-kun, you can’t do that. Your playing the game all wrong.
Haru: Tsuyoshi-san, how else is it to be played? Don’t be a sore loser.
Tsuyoshi: I’m not playing any more.

Yoshi has a bit of a temper when it comes to losing even if it’s losing to Haru.

About the flooring… long involved details that may not even interest most… I just like to type so I’ll spare you with a cut… but I’ll be talking about those cute little 360 controllers so skip towards the end to get that in…
