The new job kicked in hard and fast. I'm doing the work that, at my last company, would be done by 1.5 people. Suffice to say there is a learning curve. This, plus a new commute plus teaching my dance partner's classes as well as my own, has given me a head cold and my … Continue reading Teen Titans Terra: I shrink a head
This morning my friend Emily and I were talking about the traumas of the past year and Teen Titans Go, as 40something young women are wont to do. It's our habit to try and schedule a good face-time session each week. She's now watching Teen Titans Go, which excites me more than it probably should. … Continue reading Chibi and M size Raven
I just can't stop making Teen Titans Go dolls. This should be no surprise to anyone who knew me shortly after college when I started to amass a collection of female action figures. It seemed like a hobby that had limits because action figures were even worse back then about not producing or short packing … Continue reading JINX!
I'm doing fairly well with the "finish it" goal of February and so-so on the frugal one. Diana Prince, the groovy boutique owning super spy WW with no powers, is almost finished. Removed the Barbie lining of her jacket and I relined with leftover kimono silk from my own jacket re-lining project last year. She … Continue reading Diana Prince pt 2
The day after I wrote about craft as meditation the world decided to throw me a curve. Someone I had once been friends with has done something I can’t stomach and legal action against him has thus been thwarted. I blocked him. I posted the information and screenshots I’d received as proof of his actions. … Continue reading Color Blocked to fight crime: Diana Prince part 1
Let’s move along to finished projects I should have told you about ages ago. My Aggretsuko Blythe! Just in time for the Netflix Christmas Special!! Her face just wasn’t right last time. I realized that it was because I’d given her lips. Red pandas have mouths that pop out from under white fur. That issue … Continue reading Aggretsuko!
Because I had left over air-dry polymer resin clay I decided to make Starfire her own Silky. To color the clear/white clay I had I added a little acrylic to a blob of clay and rolled/kneaded it until the pigment was evenly distributed. And I set to work rolling, pinching, and sculpting. The Silkie I’m … Continue reading Starfire 1.0 Finished
Me (watching YouTube videos): wow, but who has the patience for that? That’s too finicky for me. Me (months later): Well, I guess now I do this too. And so it was with rerooting doll hair. I’ve been on the lookout for a “Clawdeen Wolf” 17inch tall Monster High doll to make into a Teen … Continue reading Starfire: it starts
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.
The Fairy Lady lives on. I knew she was reminding me of someone...and it's in the Guardians of the Galaxy 2 cinema version of Mantis. Marvel Cinema... when a character from Jane Eayre Freyer's 1915 book is LESS problematical than how you've written Mantis as an abused, naive, submissive Asian woman trope..you need to FIX … Continue reading Magic, Mystery and MANTIS.
