I’ve never been confused by a wig. I’ve been confused by people’s choice of wigs, sure, who hasn’t? But to fundamentally not understand a wig’s construction and intent is new to me. Maybe it’s just the lack of wigs in my life. If I had more connection to wigs, a great number of them interacting … Continue reading Wiggity-whack
Yesterday, Friday, was not great. I could get into it all but I won't. This is a huge change from my early Live Journal days when I would reveal all intimacies (with certain filters in place) and find it therapeutic to do so. I've already told this story to a few close friends and will … Continue reading The mail contains bad news and a head.
After creating a doll hybrid I had leftover parts: two full arms, pelvis, one leg with foot, one footless leg. I sawed the leg with a foot in two places and smoothed off the cuts. I think I want to make a prosthetic leg for a Dal or a Pullip...or both. A Step Ahead is … Continue reading Prosthetic leg.
Tuesday after work I went to Akihabara Radio Kaikan to buy some Obitsu bodies. Akihabara is an environment that makes me itchy and unhappy. I cannot handle the atmosphere of the place . Stores that sell straight-up posable dolls (not Anime figures) are by far more chill than the rest of Akihabara. The most chill … Continue reading Let the bodies be packed carefully and stored under my bed.
According to an Amazon review I found quoted many places: Monomono is my all time favorite Dal doll. Although in theory I think she has too much orange on her face, in real life she is absolutely beautiful. She has beautiful brown and gold eyechips. She also has a fake fur wig, which is not … Continue reading Meet Monomono
Oh, Pullip dolls. You're each unique in your own way. I'm learning so much about you. Like how some information says the old three-part heads (Type 2 heads) are pre-2009...but it's possible to order eye-gimicks and eyelids from a pre-2009 doll only to find that they are intended for a Type 3 head and DON'T … Continue reading Baggie of eye parts.
Dal was going to be a butterfly. I was going to use the few leftover fabrics from my handmade butterfly themed belly dance costume and create an ethereal butterfly girl. It was going to have an embroidered wing-patterned bustie and a wind skirt and sequined fascinator... The album of making that costume is over here. … Continue reading Your Art Gallery Owner
Let’s meet the girl behind the project I’ve been keeping secret. She’s my favorite corvid-human hybrid, Rookling. Her project happened simultaneously alongside Archie. Rookling, her polychrome hair mushrooming around her face, thick lashes and extra lashes on top of that, the eyes of Liza Minnelli, and such aptitude, y’all...such aptitudes...such a mind for images and … Continue reading For Rookling: The Secret Project.
Greetings and salutations, I’ll be your Craft CEO for this post, you can call me Executive Dysfunction. We’ve had a few setbacks. The wink bars and eyelids I ordered for the Pullip doll? It turns out they’re for Isul, Pullip’s boyfriend. These are the details you sometimes miss in a second language. The heads are … Continue reading Eye Gimicks
What have I learned? Carefully layer the fixative spray, let it fully dry, and paint up the eyes and whites first. Also, you can't make the Archie doll look trustworthy. You can only raise his craftsmanship. He'll always be eldritch. He might slice you where you sleep but he'll do it with a better quality … Continue reading Terror’s make-over is complete.
