I haven't posted a bit because I've been on a restorative vacation to my hometown in America (Madison, WI). Now I'm back in Japan, my first morning back in my apartment, waiting for my luggage to be delivered. Nothing was lost but it's never fun to lug a giant suitcase on the trains. That's why … Continue reading Back in action. No Bobbin!
Early in 2017 I used this blog to keep screenshots of how Alexandre Chebeir (who I sometimes called Chbeir because he went as both online) harassed women. You can check the Chebeir tag. There is new news on him. It's further proof that people who habitually harass women online shouldn't be treated like social goofs … Continue reading Alexandre Chebeir News
Brain: You leave for America on the 16th and you only have one full day off between then and now. However will you do all the things you need to do? Also Brain: Why don't you redecorate your toilet room? So I did. Wednesday is usually a day off for me but today I substitute … Continue reading I am Alice.
I'm taking my Sunday to make a free tutorial. Why am I working for free? I've benefited from SO many online free tutorials that I'd like to give back. Please don't hesitate to give me feedback on what needs to be tweeked...or show me pictures if you use this. Disclaimer: No one wants to read … Continue reading Moana Wrap Dress Tutorial
The first thing that hint you as you scurry into my apartment from the cold is the scent of Flair. Each bottle of fabric softener smells like a garden crime scene in which roses have been massacred. Such carnage. Much Flair. So ow my eyes and senses. I avoid scented products...but doll wigs and doll … Continue reading Spa day
I woke up this Sunday morning with no plans, except to maybe clean my apartment. It's a little chilly out, not good for spraying fixative on doll faces, so I thought I'd put things in order. While I was having my first coffee of the day my father ambushed me via FB video chat. His … Continue reading A doll for every sink.
All my heads have working eye-gimicks. Heads in progress; Make-It-Own (MIO) kit Dal in Mocha*. The kit came with everything. I'm feeling a little conflicted about the eyes I painted. On the right eye I think the lighter hue around the iris worked, on the left I think it just looks like a blotchy iris. … Continue reading The shelves have eyes.
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.
