Wait, wait, wait, wait

Which is what we do in this hobby.

If all goes well, today should be the last day of my Lati Yellow Laches being on his huge SP body. I bought off the MP a Lati Yellow Bloody Moon Lea (I think that's what it was). It's not the fullset, but comes with a few extra "glove" hands and a skull cane, and a little coffin X3 so if the resin is even a close match, we'll be good to go. My Laches will be a fullset if I have to hunt down every little piece of him separately lol
Some day.

Also due to arrive this week is my Dollmore order (I was really hoping for today - but no). In it is Big Isis's new head - Dollmore Biwol. Over the weekend I pulled Isis out - I hadn't touched her since she had been dressed for the Western meet in September as a brothel whore. Yeah. That's how we roll here. I redressed her in some clothes and put her actual wig on her so she could wait to be beheaded.

Before I did all that, I tried two other wigs on her. Theresa's black wig (which oddly, is the same style as Isis's hair, just black), and then Gabriel's red wig. I had kind of thought of making her Gabriel a few days ago - I just can't find a sculpt I like these days. Girls are so hard >.<
I already know I like Fine, and even better I own her lol
I have to say she looks great as a red-head. I mean really great. The downside is that Gabriel is like 6 foot 5, so I'll need a taller body....she can't share with Isis like Theresa.

Also coming in my DM order are flat feet and normal hands for Mini Isis - who I have yet to photograph because of her whole shoe thing. Once she can wear shoes (her white heels don't count) you may actually be able to see her. She's also getting a pair of those pleather leggings I keep on Mini Alex all the time. Since I always give him everything, I figured I could use two pairs.

Macchi will be getting a new shirt, Vanilla is getting flippy-flop feet, high-heeled feet and the ballet hands (though I'll miss his claws), he's also getting new cat ears. I've given his to Des since they're NS and I want Vanilla to have WS to match his hair. Des looks so much better with real ears instead of the fur ones. I need to get a pic of him, I love his outfit! He's completely what I wanted Soshi to be, so my take-2 on a MNF Shiwoo is perfect.

I ordered some clothes off Etsy, mostly to see how they are....they were really inexpensive but looked so cute. So hopefully they're nicely made. Or at least worth the price. I really need better clothes for certain dolls. Right now Big Isis is #1 on this list (somehow Mini Isis has plenty of clothes. I didn't have to buy her anything! O.o) as I hate most of her clothes. Sometime next year I will be giving her a wardrobe re-vamp. Nine9Style has a lot of clothes right now that I think she needs.
Java is #2 since I have nothing for him at all. I really wish he was on the single-jointed body. It's so much easier to deal with. But I guess that makes him different from Mocha....so it's fine. Until someone sells a Dark Chocolate single-jointed RS boy and I buy him just for his body. lol

I'm really nervous about Isis's new head. I hope she works out. I'm already set on Fine moving on to a new character.

And, I don't think many people noticed, but Dollmore discontinued a lot of their sculpts recently (again). Among them was Thinking Kara Klum D: D: D:
I'm a little freaked since I moved 2.5 to my "Mod Pile" to be modded even more. True, I'll still have two others lol but if I mess up 2.5 I won't be able to replace him!!  D:
Oh well. I can't mod the others, so he's it. I'm still a little freaked.

So now that they've done this twice with no warning, I have learned. If I even kind of want a head I'm going to get it. You never know when it'll be gone.

So anyway, because I'm waiting on so much I'm lame today and don't have pictures of anything. It rained all weekend so all I did was dress dolls - so I don't have much excuse for that....but whatever XD

Hopefully when Laches new body arrives I can get a shot or two of him with the rest of the group. He really needs a name.

In completely non-doll related news, I'm going to see Marilyn Manson when he's here in Feb. I'm so excited!!! NEW SHIRT!! My old one is about to fall right off me it's so decrepit. I have to dust off my frankensteins so I can see over the crowd....

Seven in the Snow

Ok, I realize I've posted a lot lately....sorry^^'
The last post was a little depressing (though things do need to be said)
And I have pictures of Seven. Outside. No shit. Not in my office at work, OUT-THEFUCK-SIDE.

In the snow. *freezes*

seven snow2 

it is different from my usual Alex (the eyebrows, he's not glaring at every single thing on the face of the earth), and really different from my usual faceup period as I NEVER go that pale on anyone. It was hard. I did it twice before I was happy. Still not sure it's 100%, but I like it. He needs eyelashes though. And even though I already glossed him, I still feel like I could do better on his lips....

  seven snow4

It was snowing when I did his faceup (so look for a ranty post about how it flakes off later lol), and it snowed again while I took these (at lunch. Don't ask), which is appropriate for him - he looks kind of like he's been out in the cold. The wind was blowing his hair all over the place.

  seven snow3-2 

Hee hee photoshop smoke XD
I do think I succeeded in making him different from the others. Unfortunately I may have ruined II in the process. Again, don't ask. *sigh* that doll. I swear. Maybe he was due for a makeover anyway...It's like I can't have them all looking nice at the same time. Someone has to self-destruct.

This one needs his hands blushed. Like burning. I think he might need some tightening too, he's a little rebellious (translation: he will not stand, the jerk).

One more!!

seven snow1-2 

 More fake smoke XDDD

EDIT: So I realized I never actually said what he was for the odd person that may not know...Seven (aka Alex) is a Kara Klum, pristine and amazingly fabulous from Dollmore. hessoprettifulsilovehimomg

I Support BJD Artists ~ #proBJDartists

Because today is Pro BJD Artist day,
and I am 100% against the making of, buying, selling
and owning recasts. 

Please support artists by buying legit dolls.

support BJD artists

There is no excuse for buying a fAKE, recast BJD. NONE.
If you can save up for a recast, you can save up to buy a legit doll from an actual artist.
It makes me sick to think of the artists who pour their heart and souls into the sculpting and making of these dolls, only to have them stolen by the selfish assholes who buy recasts simply because they are selfish assholes, none of whom give a shit about anything other than themselves.

Recasts will destroy this hobby. It's ruined the second-hand market already, and it will ruin the rest as well. Real artists are closing up shop, others will follow. 

Please do not support recasts, SUPPORT ARTISTS INSTEAD. 

BUY LEGIT.

And don't forget the "s" at the end of #proBJDartists, like I did XD   ^^;;;;;
lol no undo when you write by hand *fail*

Tiny Unicorn

Just some pictures.

MACCHI1

He has tiny wings now >3< and this accidental wig I'm in love with. It was supposed to be an 8\9 from Licht but they sent the wrong size. I was going to ask for the correct size, but I made the mistake of putting it on Macchi and now it's his. It would probably look better if I'd bothered to fix it first...He has so many wigs now. So many...

MACCHI2 

 Obviously I need to spray (and then glitter!! TONS OF GLITTER!) his wings. They're way too shiny. Because glitter won't make them shiny AT ALL :B

Extreme close-up of his eyeses. Which are also new (and from Oscar. Like all the rest. I am obsessed)

macchi eyes 

 He's wearing a Wimkut/Foxy Browny outfits, I think he needs more. He is reminding me very much of cotton candy right now. I bought an oversized fluffy sweater from Dollmore in my last order. Someday it will come in, and he will be even more a pink flufferball of doom...
