Akihiro, almost complete. He needs new eyes and a last name (this is always the hardest part for me and usually will take a month or so for me to decide). He’s a WS School A and just so lovely. He was my little weekend project. If I say that Daniel Falls was incredibly thoughtful in making sure I had this boy in time to prepare for Dolpa, it would be an understatement. I honestly can not thank him enough. I’m very excited to be taking him with me next weekend.

He was a bit intimidating at first. Like the Schulze, all the things I had set aside for him didn’t work… mainly for the fact that the rest of my boys have smaller sd sized heads and wear smaller eyes. All of my wigs are sized for Tak and Hito who both wear 8-9. Luckily, I had this lovely 4D fur wig that I completely forgot about that was just too big for everyone else but was prefect for him (the bonus is that it’s short and black… which is exactly what I wanted for him<3). I was also worried about the pale pale skin tone. My face ups are very light. Hito’s face up is as dramatic as I’ll go. I was afraid that Aki would be too washed out. But after both the face up and the body blushing I’m quite happy with the way he turned out. I’ve also discovered that he is much more suited to wear warm tones, maybe (I’m still thinking about this one). I had made a sweater in the slate color mohair for but I’m afraid it may make him too washed out. This older chocolate number I had on hand works beautifully with his resin<3 I still have a bit to do this week before Dolpa. Pants to make, a hat to finish and a few commissions to round up. I also need to make a final list of places to go and eat (I really want to find a good ramen restaurant while we’re there). But on the top of the list is to make sure I get plenty of rest. I really don’t want to be a stumbling fool while I’m in New York. So on that note I’m going to bed;3
