Today is one of those days where I realize how much I haven't posted. I sat down to type up a post about a finished project I named Bi-Little Pony. The project involves a person serving as an inspiration who I have Dolled before so I went back to find those posts and found...only one … Continue reading Caty is a doll.
It was about a year ago I brought home a Living Dead Doll, Hush, from my local Hobby Off and opened her baggie to be assaulted with the stench of nicotine. I wrote about scrubbing and scrubbing to remove the nicotine stains. Eventually I got her down to an ivory white. She'd never be the … Continue reading Here I am. Little Me.
I've written before about how handy-work can be quite an effective form of meditation for those of us with minds that sometimes fight meditation. The repetition of movement, the precision needed, and the concentration used helps clear my head. It’s not that I don’t think while doing this, I do, but it’s a quieter thinking. … Continue reading Acrylic Yarn: Squeeky self-care.
Doll fixing while cleaning: Picked up this damaged, unwigged, naked Audrey Hepburn for about 2,500¥ What she's supposed to look like. Reality. She was missing blink bars...which didn’t much matter as is because her eyes had been modified so they stuck out too far for her eyelids to close anyways. I’d found a listing on … Continue reading Holly went roughly.
Rehab: While cleaning up my craft room (as part of a Mom/Craftmas is coming I’m also tackling “to do” unfinished work. This might be my inability to avoid distraction or it might legit be reducing my clutter/ getting things prepared so that craft work can begin whenever I’m ready. Dal surgery: A baggie Dal I … Continue reading Replacing broken knee joint
This Friday was my last Friday going to my current therapist. I’ve been going to her, and taking anti-depressants, since September 2011...when the low of the 3/11 Tohoku quake / Fukushima aftermath just never left me. I could barely get through a day without crying. I was erratic. I couldn’t fathom what would happen when … Continue reading Dollyterria haul!
Ok, catching up on two months of crafting is showing me how godddamned much stuff I make. A Japanese bellydancer I'm friends with on FB JUST posted a photo of a Pullip Nah-Atto she saw in a Book-Off and I replied with a picture of my before and after...and was going to send her the … Continue reading Nah-Atto part 2.
Ebony and I visited Dollyterria again during one of our Ikebukuro meet ups in July. Again, I came home with a new friend. Dal Lipoca is a 2008 Groove doll release. She retails new/mint condition for about 100USD/10,000¥. My Lipoca was around 3,000. Dolly in a baggie deals! She was FILTHY. She obviously lived with … Continue reading Dal Lipoca
If you’re vaguely obsessive like me...and I’m assuming you’re a little like me...and you skip blogging for two months it can be daunting to return. Instead of looking at the overwhelming amount of stuff I have to present to you I’m going take comfort in the fact that I’m NOT lacking subject matter. Ill just … Continue reading Life in Boxes: Alice
I haven't written for a while but I sure as hell have been making things. You see, my friends and I were hit with not one but two sociopaths this summer. We didn't know about #summerofscammers until after the devastation. We're petitioning that if there is a destructive human force NEXT summer that someone send … Continue reading Emily’s Doll: Will a doll help?
