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

I was totally thinking about this guy today and felt the need to post a photo (an old one at that). I really should take some new ones. Maybe this weekend with Yoshi since I feel they don’t like each other very much and it would be funny to see them together(?). I honestly don’t take the photos I used to take. I never seem to have the time. I may have to cut out a few conventions over the next year. No time for personal projects. I’m thinking that a certain secret web project with a certain awesome creative gal, who has agreed to do it with me (more like put up with me, hahaha) will get my butt in motion and force me to actually schedule some time to play dollies (very, very excited^_^).

So seeing Aki reminds me that thanks to a recommendation by Miss Seijikat, an amazing artist has agreed to close the eyes on my NS School A^o^. Again, very excited. I really did not think I would find someone so soon and thought that eventually I would have to attempt it myself (have the supplies but not the nerve). There is a bit of time before I send him out, which is a good (not prepared). I need the time to clean him up from the workshop I took at Dolpa and figure out details for his face up since I’ll be getting that as well. I have no plans for him at all so there is a bit of room for freedom.

Totally random and not doll related (maybe TMI, don’t know). My mom took her monthly day trip up to Philly today with Miss P. Just the mention of Philly has me totally hankerin’ for fried cheese grits from Sabrina’s Cafe (no words on how good they are). Cait is coming into town for a week this month (July that is) and she wants to take a day trip. I will be feeding that craving. Rambling again. Sending out an email then going to bed… tomorrow is Friday. That is a nice thought to end the post with.


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
