Messing with another new app. This one is called PhotoShake. Very silly but fun. This little collection of photos are my nine favorite of the chibi that I took and posted on Instagram(explains the craptacular quality… Instagram does that to photos). So funny these two are. I was thinking of maybe getting a third boy (a Mamu boy would be a cute idea) or… dare say… wait for it… get a girl to start a little trouble (hahaha, not happening anytime soon). But looking at these photos I’m happy with these two silly boys.

-Purchased this coat this morning. This is the first time I ever fought through a Volks after event (or whatever it’s called) for an outfit but I almost bought it back in April on Ebay for Hito. It was going for $90+ at the time. Seeing it only go for $28 I figured I would give it a try. Ahhh!!! That web site was just crazy when the sale went up. Quite a few items sold out quickly but mostly the DDs outfits. Luckily the coat was not one of them and Hito now has outer wear (a scarf and hat will be made for him soon after it’s arrival… not like I need to be thinking coats right now).

-TMI: I have a slight sore throat the last several days. I can’t decide if its sinus or a cold coming on. It’s going to be hot next week so I’m really hoping it’s not the later (╬ ಠ益ಠ). Summer colds are the worse. Also I have a mini meet with Lauren and Leigh… don’t want to be sick for that. (again with the (╬ ಠ益ಠ))

Death by cuteness anyone? Besides the seriously adorable Volks uniforms I’ve been going on about everywhere but here, early last week I purchased these two adorable Kuma (bear) hats from etsy artist ParakeetPeach. She was at Doll Fete a few weekends back and I happened to spot them in a few instagram photos from the show (more reasons to love that app). I crossed fingers that she might have a few left over and that she would put them in her shop. Lucky for me she did, only a few days after the show. How cute are they?! I love her cute accessories and clothes. I just want everything that she has in her shop right now!

Now, as for these two silly boys… I think they are attempting the Fusion Dance OAO. Which I will tell is almost, if not absolutely impossible with the Volks YoSD body. In case for some strange reason you are not familiar with the Fusion dance here is a perfect example below:

This is a DBZ thing but in this case it’s some random scene from Zetsubou Sensei.

So the lovely Mr Head is here and I love him to pieces. Jamie of Lightlybattered did an amazing job. He looks as though he was sculpted this way and not modded. The mod work is smooth and flawless and the face up is gorgeous. I love the shape of his eye. For my first experience with sending a head out to be modded and painted, I would say it was so worth the time and money and I see no problem doing it again. Love him<3

Some more awesome photos from the Mr.

Sadly, I don’t think the captain can see it, but Teddy looks like he might be having a bit too much fun at the very top of that stump.

Here is a little omake behind the cut. More»

Another awesome photo from the Mr.

This evening I received my order from TTYA’s etsy store. It was just a small order (one item) and a cute one at that. I had been eying up these overalls for some time now. They are so well made and detailed. She has tiny tags and snaps all to scale with her logo on them. So CUTE!!! Yoshi-kun looks absolutely adorable in he new outfit and outrageously orange shoes (another recent purchase). Now I just have to make him some t-shirts.

If you look closely you’ll see that he has a couple of friends with him. Two tiny teddies that I made recently. He’s not parting with the little one in his pocket but the other he’s giving to a little friend he hasn’t had a chance to meet yet. The one he’s gifting has some lavender in his belly and smells so nice when it’s hugged. It’s to keep their sweaters smelling pretty and to keep them safe from those little guys that like to munch on wool. Tsuyoshi is just a considerate little guy.

The Mr was helping me this evening take photos for the Yo sized update I’m making in the commission thread tomorrow evening. His photos are always a million time better than what I’m able to produce. As soon as he put them into his computer he did some sizing and sent them over to me. I thought the two images above were so cute. Tsuyoshi looks like he’s in the middle of a dance.

I love him, I love him, I love him a million times over. What a cutie. This evening not only did his “proper” wig come in from Crobidoll but also a package from Mrs Seijicat from a Tata order she had organized (thank you:D). So now I feel like I can properly take photos of him (sort of< .< The photo above stinks... for a reason). His clothes from Tata are adorable and fit so well. I got him a pair of shorts, some shoes (replacing the strings) and a yukata. The wig on the other hand… I feel that Crobi wigs and I are not meant to be together unless I do some tweaking. This is the second wig purchased from them and I wasn’t too thrilled when it came out of the box. I had to modify it as soon as I put it on him (which I feel shouldn’t be necessary) But I’m satisfied with it for now. Will it be his forever? Don’t know. I really wanted a short wefted mohair wig for him. Until I find the perfect one this will be his.

The sweater is the v-neck I posted the other night. As I said before, I’m so happy with the fit. I’m gong to take some photos of the other collar styles this week. I’ve been knitting away this weekend.

So, I messed up my ankle this evening running for the bus and it wasn’t because of the ice storm we got this morning More»

I know I said that I had no doll plans for this year… yet, twice (here and here) in a short amount of time Channel TOYBOX has reminded me that I need a modded NS School A or a NS SWD School A to go with the School A I got at Dolpa (you know, the one I was going to sell to recoup some of the money spent on Aki… but didn’t).

By the way, her site also reminds me that I really want one of those gorgeous shirts of hers. So pretty… And I need to build a good collection on short haired wigs, preferably mohair. That or learn to make my own wefts with all that wool I’ve been buying. Going to her site daily has to stop. The list of dolly needs is getting longer and longer with each visit.

I made my New Years resolutions over at Amubleu the other night but I didn’t post any doll related ones. 2010 I added three new guys to my group, including the little guy above. I was able to go to Dolpa and had an amazing time. The conventions I went to were great as well this year. I even hosted not just one but two doll related panels this year.

This year I don’t plan on adding anyone to my group but I do have a few ideas. Last year I promised myself to actually enjoy my guys. Photograph them more, make them clothes and props but that didn’t really happen. So it’s back on the list this year. I’m hoping that my little blog plans will help that but at the moment I’m finding it a bit challenging… and it’s only the third day of the year;_;. I want to work on building a “place” just for the boys. It will involve me having make props and such but I think I’m up to it. Sculpting is last thing on the list. I have several projects started and I would like to have some of them finished by the end of the year. Honestly, I feel like I want to do everything sometimes and maybe I do.

By the way, after so much thought and searching I think the little guys name is Tsuyoshi. I thought it was a bit too old for him and maybe not cute enough but I can’t seem to get past it. The Mr likes it (I just think it’s because I would be calling him Yoshi or Yoshi-kun for short). I changed his eyes by the way, and what an improvement (also what a pain… damn hot glue). The smaller glass eyes give him a more realistic looks. Right now I think he look distracted, hahaha.


So he has finally arrived… though in all seriousness he’s here a lot soon than expected. Still no name so I will be on the search this weekend. For the time being I’ve been calling him Puff-n-Stuff (horrible, I know). He’s a Volks Puff and first Yosd boy that made me go “awww…”. There is a long story on how I missed out on this guy when he was re-release this past summer but I’ll save you all from the boring details. I finally have him and that’s that. He’s so freakin’ cute!! I could totally nom nom on those cheeks of his.

Besides clothes he needs his seams sanded, a new wig, new eyes and I’m still not sure what to do about his face up. I may just touch it up a little bit and leave it at that. I’m actually liking it a bit more seeing it in person than seeing it advertised or in photos. Other than the things mentioned before, he most definitely has his little spot within the rest of the boys. I’ll eventually get into that a bit later but for now he needs a name.
