Emergency Post of Sales

It's not really an emergency, it's for doll stuffs (I have never had to sell for an actual emergency, and I hope I never do.....but you never know).

I wanted to do a nice Doll-A-Kon post, as it was awesome, but I am hoping to sell some stuffs in a couple days so it will have to wait for this. Tell your friends! Tell your family!! Tell everyone you know who might need a Delf type 1 girl body, or a Granado Uranus head or a Sleeping Sionna head or a Migidoll El!!! EVERYONE!!

CP / Luts Delf Type Girl body Type 1 NS $350
DOA SALES POST
I got her in a trade. No damage that I've seen, but it seems to me that her hands aren't the same color as the rest of her. She has normal yellowing expected from a CP doll of this age (meaning: old)
I sueded her, so she's actually pretty sturdy. Any questions please ask!

DELFGBODY4



Granado Uranus head NS $165
DOA SALES POST
I ordered him the second he was available...but when I took him out of the box I knew he wasn't for me. *shame* he's gorgeous, but the really mature dolls and I don't get along. This head is brand new, it will come with it's COA and in the box I got it in.
Any questions please ask!

uranus head



Migidoll El head NS B (matches volks) $160
DOA SALES POST
I bought this guy in the last sale they did with the old A and B resin....sometime in the spring of 2014 I think. He arrived the day I left for Doll-A-kon last year. He was on a body once, and has been in a box ever since. I gave him this one faceup - MSC, pastels, Water color pencil. I may have lost his box (but then that  might have been River's box...so I might still have it), but I've got the COA.
Any questions please ask!

MIGIEL1



Fairyland Feeple 60 Sionna sleep head $90
DOA SALES POST
Came with the fullset, I'll probably never use it. Brand new, never been on a body or had a faceup. I am keeping the rest of the doll so the COA stays with me.
Any questions please ask!

SIONNASP HEAD2


Also for sale but not yet listed:
Luts Kid Delf Summer 13 Event head (elf ears) NS
Dollzone 1/4 Fei (sold out) head NSP
Dollzone MO B 1/3 head NSY
Latidoll Yellow Lea Bloody Moon head with Lati faceup in tan

I might be willing to part with my Dollzone Star and Moon heads - both have fantasy faceups I will not wipe, both are in WS, Star has extra horns glued to his head. I would like $200 each - firm. I can get pictures if anyone is interested but I'm not putting them up for sale for real (on DOA) because I'm not sure if I want to part with them yet or not.

If you're interested please make me an offer, I am more likely to go cheap right now than I will be in two weeks! Just saying. Prices are currently firm on everything above and I will accept trades for Sionna only at this time.


Aaaaaand super-fast sales post activate!!

Doll-A-Kon, Etsy, stuff and more Alex.

I'll be at Doll-A-Kon again this year - not for faceups, as I've done in the past - but for body blushing. So if you have ever wanted to learn how to blush, this is the time! Hint: it's way easier, and much less stressful than doing a faceup, especially the way I do it. I highly recommend it.

I'll also be doing a posing and styling for photos panel and something on doll sizes...which I'm good at as I have them all XD

When I'm not doing a panel or workshop I'll be in the vendor room, so if you miss my panels n' stuff, come visit me there! I like to talk. I'll have Alex III with me, as he's better than a name badge for identification XD

It's hard to miss that hair.

You may remember a time or two of me mentioning that I have a roommate who sews and often makes clothes for my dolls that I can't buy anywhere - she'll be there and we'll be selling new, handmade items as well as used things and dolls. All the dolls I've been stockpiling up and not selling. So if you feel the need to buy BJDs, stop by! It'll save me from having to post them all on DOA. lol

I splurged a lot over the weekend and bought a Cricut (which autocorrect hates like mad)...so we'll have t-shirts (doll-sized) with stuff on them as well. I am the queen of vector art, so I'll try to have some original designs (gotta do it fast tho) as well as plain old boring stuffs like ribcage shirts and my personal favorite; NOPE. Who doesn't need a NOPE shirt?!? I want one for me. I'd wear it every day. There may be profanity, because Alex...but maybe people will want shirts that say F  CK    U or whatever ends up being on it. Or they'll just be Alex's shirts because I feel like all his shirts should be R-rated. Or at least PG13.

Because we're working on all this doll stuffs, our Etsy page is being revived. Finally. I may post a link next week or this weekend after there's more on it, but hopefully in the future it will be full and pretty. Macchi, Mini-Isis and Chester are all modeling skirts along with my roommates three girls. Of course I had to sneak my boys in there. Boys can wear skirts too! Macchi was happy...his had a Unicorn on it.

In other news, David. I am trying to prepare for my Nano book already, and I've been looking into developing David's character more since I usually run into road blocks with him, both in the comic and anything else I write. He's more important than I am often able to make him.

I have had similar trouble with the doll versions, from his eyes to his hair to his clothes (and body) he is so hard for me. So this week I started him a Pinterest board, something I should have done but was afraid too - because I thought I'd find nothing to pin in it. I'm so happy I did it finally. I feel like just finding some clothes was a huge step, and now I have a few more things that really helps me understand him better. David has always been my "boy scout" character. My version of Superman, Captain America, Cyclops (before he went cray) and Angel and Riley (Buffy) smooshed together.  That's how I think of him -  as Alex's polar opposite. I even figured his looks based off Alex (nose bigger, jaw squarer, eyes smaller, taller, more masculine) rather than coming up with something on it's own. Now I want to make him his own person/character....and it's hard. But starting to work. Now that I have the Cricut I can do what I've wanted to do forever which is make him a Superman shirt (Alex gets Batman. SEE HOW THEY ARE??!). Then I can start working on getting the doll a wardrobe, something I've been trying to do since day 1 of my owning him. It's not easy. He's tough. And Alex has a tendency to steal his clothes (in character that happens too so it's ok).

Speaking of Alex, it's Alex II. Don't get me started on him. He's on my list again.

ALEXII152

 But hey, shirt!! And hat really, we'll be selling hats. but not this one, it's his.

  ALEXII155

 3 things of note:
 I haven't replaced his eyelashes yet
You can see his eyes - they're new, Gumdrops in Periwinkle, making him the final Alex in Kara Klum form to get Urethane eyes. I love them.
He's no longer on the DC body. I couldn't take his tallness anymore. Now I love him again.

The shirts we'll be selling will not be that off the shoulder - it was a fluke, but since I draw him like that I love it. They fit SD13-SD17 but fit will vary (I tried them on David (Dollstown 15), Pilot (Volks Chris) and Gambit (Granada 64))

One more!

ALEXII151 

 He looks weird to me with no tattoos.....Him and Seven are so weird and blank.

So that's it for now, hopefully I'll have more pictures after this weekend...I'm on a Kara Klum kick (like that never happens) so III is next to be shot. Heheheh shot.

He's dressed good, so it should be easy! RIGHT!

7 Years! Plus one week!

I am going to go from no posting to over-posting, meh heh.

Anyway I took these pics of Alex, and even if they aren't interesting, he's pretty and I bothered, so I shall post.

ALEXI7yrs1

not my favorite but it's a good "this is what he looks like now" photo.

  ALEXI7yrs3 

 This one I love - he's actually standing all bent over like that - it was a straight photo, no weird angle like I like to do and those blobs are dried roses in the corner.

  ALEXI7yrs2 

 I also really like this one - It's a view I don't take of my dolls often (or at all) and that's Paper Skullface in the background XD
Does that mean there's two Kara Klums in this picture??

Yay Alex! He's 7 now (ooooooollllldddddddd - ok not compared to people who've had their dolls for a decade or more, but still pretty crusty) which means I've officially been doing this doll thing for 7 years too! One good thing I will say about him - he has looked better every year. <3

Maybe that's a good thing to say about me XD I did something right! One thing. lol

Oh and that's a new wig. Cause I need more blond wigs.

I do kind of think he needs a new faceup - if nothing else this one needs some help - his nose is getting kinda shiny. More MSC!! I've never liked his eyelashes either so those could be redone. Meh. I have a lot of blank dolls right now, redoing this one is low priority! 

I wish I could take the kind of photos that would show off how well he stands. He stood for this shoot, all contorted at times, with no help at all, on one leg for some of it, with not one moment of OMG where he threatened to fall. I feel like I could have left him standing all day. People never want to give Dollmore a chance because the knees aren't double-jointed and there's no 3-part torso. Having owned plenty of double-jointed dolls with 3-part torsos that can't sit up or stand, I can safely say I'd much rather have this one (Which is good since I have five of them! So I might be biased, since he's my favorite. *whispers* other than III. Not sure that counts.). He does everything I want him to anyway. 

Which is be AWESOME.

(when I type 7 I can't spell it out since I named Seven Seven and it's confusing. To me. XD)

Still trying

Wow.
So it's been over a month since I last posted. That's insane. Remember when I used to do this all the time?? I barely do.

If anyone is still reading this, I'm going to try to get back into the groove (the grrooooooooooveeeee) by posting anything at all. My job has been overwhelmingly busy since March, like, I don't get breaks and have zero time to do anything "extra" at all. And since 95% of my internetting happens at work *cough* this means my net-life has just died a sad death. Add that to the weather and my general lack of time and energy to do anything at all, and I've done nothing with my dolls (or art for that matter) since coming back from Florida.

I haven't even posted things for sale, and I have a lot of stuff piling up in the sales dept.

Stuff has happened, I just haven't done much with it other than a few sad photos of a comparison and Sionna's arrival.

Arrivals
There have been some. In fact, all of them. I'm waiting on nothing. Nothing at all. Not even a book from Amazon!

F60 Sionna
She got here, was gorgeous for all of 5 minutes, and I pulled her apart and split her up as was planned. Her outfit fit Isis (she's still wearing it), Sage has her body, and her head is on the old Delf body, with Anna's clothes and wig. That's pretty much all I did with her.

Granado Uranus
Got him this week. Nice head, but looks nothing like the pictures so I'll eventually be selling him.

Supia Ariel
Grabbed a head second-hand. Perfect for Gabriel, I'm pleased with my choice....now to get her a body....

Blue fairy Robin
I was set on making my AR Cien work for Raphael in my last entry....and two days later I bought a body on DOA for cheaps and a week or so after that grabbed a head. They don't match, but I've been working on redoing Raphs character completely so I'm pretty happy with my decision.

Dollmore Dollpire Grammy
Wat.
Ok, this was a total impulse buy. When I contacted the seller of the Supia head she somehow talked me into buying her Dollpire. XD She didn't have to try too hard....Grammy is WS, and A Dollpire kid, something I've been wanting since DM came out with their DPs. She has a gorgeous faceup and I was pretty set on buying her before I even saw photos. I was a little concerned about her sculpt since I have never been interested in Grammy or even really looked at it, but I should not have been - she's perfect for me. She's got that vague Dollstown-esque look to her I love and is exactly what I wanted when I owned my DMK Vian years ago. So she is a huge win.

The bad thing about all these arrivals is that (story of my life) they all showed up within days of one another....so I have been a little overwhelmed by all of them. I'm taking it slow -- the new Raphael stayed in a box for awhile and I got him out just last weekend, Grammy has been hanging out with me a little more but other than finding a wig I kind of like for her for now, I've done about nothing constructive with her. She doesn't even have a name though I'm leaning toward Wraith. She hangs out with Ghost, my DZ Carter. They're even dressed similar right now XD

Other
None of my blank dolls have received faces since like, November....so Benedict is still blank. However he's spawned a whole universe at this point that I never would have even thought of doing. In fact, I think it needs it's own post so I won't go into it here. Luckily I didn't need to buy anything for this latest project, though I'm eventually going to need clothes. That doesn't count anyway XD

So that's been my doll-life lately. I'm slowly getting ready for Doll-A-Kon, but the reality of it has yet to hit me.....maybe this weekend it will XD

Also I missed Alex's birthday. It was may 6. I don't normally care about my doll's birthdays but since his arrival got me into the hobby I usually try to recognize it. Not this year! Totally missed. Luckily he's nicely dressed so I will try to take him somewhere and get photos of him someday. I took some of Tween on my birthday but never even edited any of them :\
