In my last post I preached the good word of Hujoo, having just gotten one and fallen in love. I also mentioned that I'd been looking at and for Pullip Dals but was hesitent to buy one due to wanting to customize one myself, and their fullsets are not cheap and so cute I was afraid I'd feel limited at what I could do with it....(run-on sentences ftw!).
I got extremely lucky....bellalupina on DOA saw my
the third is temporarily on a body that it won't keep...and right after I took these (horribly bad) photos his head fell off and the body fell apart XD
Anyway here they are!
Hujoo Alex is on the end because he cutes. And he just got his strings tightened and all he seems to want to do is look up XD I'll have to fix that...probably my sueding will have to be removed...
As soon as I got them yesterday I took all of them apart, switched out eye-mechs and bodies til I was happy. I chipped away at the eyelasshes in the one with Alex III's old wig (back from the dead! wooooooo!) for about a million years, and tried to get the glue residue off them...I did a fair job. They need lots more work, different eye chips, new wigs for the two not in green and purple, all new faceups (is that what they're called in Pullip/Dal lingo??) and the tall one needs a new body so he's not a freak. They're all on obitsu bodies btw...which I also took apart. I was all about dissection yesterday...
The giant body is mine that I had bought a million years ago to put my L action figure on since his body broke. There was more modding involved than I was comfortable doing (because it was very permanent modding) and I never did it. Now I'm thinking I should....He'd be happy to get out of the box he's been in for years.
Then they all need fabulous clothes. Most of what they're wearing was supplied by bellalupina (whom I can't thank enough), the BW stripey shirt came with my Pukifee, the wigs and hat belong to (big) Alex(s), the outfit giantface is wearing was the same thing Hujoo Alex had on before I bought him his outfit which came from Etsy. All the shoes are some form of barbie.
So this is my new project! I am trying not to get attached to the way they are at this moment because when I redo their faceups and get them new eyes it won't matter which head is which now, but it's hard not to keep thinking of them as DalAlex1 DalAlex2 and Az. I'm already wondering how I can get a Pullip and a Taeyang to be Isis and David now XD
couple of closeups
awww this one is so sad XD
one more cause in this hat he's killing me angryface!!!! omg he needs blue eyes so bad D:
I need to get all three of them with Chibi Alex, who is still the angriest of them all... Chibi Alex is unimpressed by sparklies. He is also a Puki Chichi, though he think everyone on the planet should know that. He also thinks you're wrong. It doesn't matter what your doing or thinking at this moment, you're wrong. He's bad like that.
He also needs a new faceup D: D: D: D: D:
I wanted to show photos of Alex III's tattoos (I finally finished his arms. Now he has two more, scars and blushing and he'll be finished! Except he'll be so dirty by then I'll have to start over....) but I don't have any XD I've been too busy working on the comic...which has updates! Go visit my DA to see! Someday I'm going to get them up on my other blog and be happy...but I can't figure out how I want to do it. I turn procrastination into an art form. Oh yes.
