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....

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.

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!!

 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...

Invasion of the Body Sharers. And Seven.

I got my Fairyland Nanuri 12A last week. This is the doll I decided would be Sages Twin, the Elf formerly known as Kael. I changed his name to Rowen becasue it sounds better and makes more sense with Sage. The faceup "he" came with was fantastic, and by some miracle, it matches the wig, so I'm keeping it. The only thing I did was pull out the eyelashes, because FL Chloe is the girliest girl in history and mine is a boy. So he needed a little less fluff. He's gone and stolen my El's body becuase it's the only one I have that will work unless I steal Aishe's, and Aishe has earned his right to keep his body dammit. So Adrien is already a head in a box. He won't stay that way - I just ordered him some truly fantastic eyes.

So with Rowan home, and Sage  and Wyn I have all my Elves but Shae. Still. I decided to go on and search for a head I could use on another "borrowed" body, and was directed toward Miracle Doll's Lestat. Which happens to be a head I've admired many times since it came out and was only available on their blog. Head also happened to be on sale. Hells yes.

So many years after selling the B&G Sapphira I'll have Wyn's half-brother again. I have a wig he can borrow, but I'll have to get one for him permanently. I'll also have to figure out how I want to disfigure his face. Long story. I'm excited because Lestat is a head I've wanted before, he has an open mouth with fangs so I can use him to get inspiration for my on-hold-until-I-get-parts Kara Klum mod-project, and when Rowan was Kael I owned him for a time as a B&G LE Nailo, but never at the same time as Shae. So I'll have them all together for firsties. Wyn's gots a newish faceup so he's all good to be pictureated, and other than needing her hair tamed, Sage is ready to go. GROUP SHOT!! Yays!

Shae will share a body with whoever's body he fits (but I am hoping for the Granado. Why shouldn't half my dolls be on that body? WHY?!) because I don't need any of them as a whole doll forever I think. I dunno. We'll see. I really like Rowan on that Delf body. I might like him more on an F60 one. OH GOD THE MONEY D:

Also getting a re-shell is Isis. I ordered her new head last week. I am hoping to get her before my next Dollmeet *fingers crossed*. Her new self will be DM Biwol. A doll I thought was the perfect Isis since her release, but I already owned Fine. I mean really, if you had to work with Alex you'd look worried too. Trust me on this.

I'm nervous about her becuase her eyes are so small - 10mm I think - but hopefully it won't be horrible next to David and Alex (who are 12s and 14-16). With Isis's recent character development I just don't see her as the Fine so much anymore, so I decided to go on and take this plunge. *scared*

And with all the new and incoming dolls I have recently, what do I do? Fall back into my usual obsession. A million things to do and work on and all I want is to play with this one.
SEVEN!! :D

SEVEN2

 Luckily he needs playtiems, as he is still blank. *fail*
If I'm going to be honest, since he's too pretty to mod into disasterage, I am sort of at a loss as to what I want for him. He's been wearing that vest since I bought it at Dollism, so I'm thinking this is his style. I have all these clothes I buy for Alex I just don't see him wearing or I just never put on him (like all my Anotherspace stuffs)...this one is going to wear the clothes. All the clothes!!! And wear this wig I mangled several years back. And the two wigs I have had planned to make but never did because I don't see the current Alex's wearing them.
He's slowly becoming a doll. Or at least becoming more than the doll sitting on the Alex shelf cowering because apparently Alex I is a bully. Not sure why that should surprise me.


SEVEN1 

He has the expensive eyes (Enchanted Doll Eyes, also from Dollism). I had him less than 24 hours and he took all the shit I bought. Lol. Alex.



SEVEN3 

 I just love him. Seven of the same stupid doll and he never gets old for me.

I am having trouble deciding what kind of faceup I want on him however.

I - Somewhat natural, pretty.
II - Looks like death (not the entity, the concept.), still natural
III - Is the most "Alex" Alex.
IV - Is actually Azrael, who is  Death. The entity.
Skullface - Also Azrael. Also Death. Looks it literally.
2.5  who is now 6 - getting wiped and modded, but has the "glam" faceup
7 - Blank. Boo.

I feel like I've covered the bases....but in order to justify him he needs his own look.The good thing is, Alex being 500years old, I have pretty much everything under the moon to choose from...he gets bored. He's probably done it to himself. It meaning everything. XD

I could go:
Emo-Goth - which I don't have unless you count Azrael who's totally goth (dammit)
A different natural than Alex's I or II. No idea how I would do that tho...
A less cray version of Visual Kei than Adrien (or is that just Goth??? OMG I DON'T KNOW!! too many styles)
I have no idea.

What I know
Alex has:
Naturally white-blond hair
Blue eyes (cornflower like the flower or possibly the crayon.)
Pale, pale skin - which is also natural thanks to the hair but also, vampire.
Black eyebrows. Yep. Don't ask.

So other than that I can really do anything...no tattoos, but scars and piercings would work as both would eventually heal. My only character hang-ups are his laziness - he's not a super-high-maintenance person because he wouldn't bother, and would only half-ass do anything so the current dyed hair is a lot of work for him - and he doesn't like to emphasize the fact that he is pretty. So sometimes I don't think it's right to put "makeup" on him. I do it anyway (2.5/6) because I like it, but I feel wrong doing it.

Hair I've got planned. This wig, another dread wig - all dreadlocks this time, and one of alpaca that looks like it's been half shaved off - the precursor to his green-purple style of looks-like-it's-been-cut-with-a-weed-eater. I also have to make a new Green and Purple wig X2 for reasons out of alpaca hair. Assuming I can make anything at all out of alpaca hairs. I have the stuff, I just have to do it. Someday.

But the point is, hair I have covered. And eyes. And clothes.

I just need a faceup. Urg. I should go look at faceups for inspiration. I just don't want him looking like I and II. Here's hoping. I need to work on updating my doll list. So many body-sharers atm and it's getting confusing. I think this is the Year of the Floating Head for me. :\
