Today while I was outside I saw a stick. It was a good stick, pretty big, probably had just been broken off the tree it was laying next too. When I saw it was nearly overcome with the desire to pick it up and use it as a sword. It was so strong I had to do the "eyes forward, keep walking" thing. Had I paused or looked back I think I would have grabbed the stick. And had to play with it.
As I walked away it occurred to me that maybe I forgot to grow up somewhere between childhood and now. Worse, I rounded a corner and went up a hill and was behind a family with three young children, the oldest two about 8 -10ish. Both had sticks. Both were using them as weapons.
So now I have the maturity of an 8 year old. Though I didn't actually pick the stick up, so that has to count, right? Even though I really really wanted too and still kinda do?
*goes off to play with dolls*
Hey, look. Pictures! :D
First, my ghost girl! She's still blank, but I did wipe her faceup, clean her off, restring (ok I just tightened her strings) her, pull the weird wires out of her legs that I DID NOT PUT IN THERE OMG WHO WAS WIRING MY DOLLS!?!?!??!?!? find her a new wig (temporary), outfit, and eyes. Sort of. It's one of two pairs. Or a pair and some marbles. I can't decide if I like all black or just pupiless. Or if I should buy new ones. A faceup might have to come first.
I want to really scary her up, but maybe keep her looking tragic. Or evil. I like both, so it's hard to decide. Kind of like the eyes! lol
Oooooh spooky lighting!! Or bad lighting...whichever.
This is definitely bad lighting.
Or maybe it is spooky! >:D
Ah photoshop. Some people should not be allowed to play with you. Ha ha! But yeah, there she is. The wig I borrowed from a friend, and it's actually backwards as the back looked nicer and had no bangs. Her outfit and creepy doll are vintage things I picked up at the Doll and Bear show last year, and an antique mall a couple years ago. I'm toying with the idea of giving her a wound on her neck like she was decapitated....or not. Maybe just bandages because god knows I can't have enough bandaged dolls....though I guess no one has seen Lucifer since I did that too him....
I'm already happier with her. I hope she'll capture my interest enough. So far so good XD
Now for Jean in her spankin' new Phoenix outfits!!
It's all kinds of fabulous! When I first got the crazytoon idea to make a male Jean Grey this was what I pictured her wearing! Colors are off because I didn't want to take the chance of ordering something and having not work out right so I had to make due with what I found in the local stores. This was seriously it. We don't have much in the way of a choice around here. Personally I think it's ok! She's kind of tan so the darker green looks good. I'd also like a similar one in red for the Dark Phoenix outfits and a black one just for funs, but I want them all different so I have to do some redesigning.
Oh and my favorite part?
I have never seen gold BJD boots (though I'm sure they exist somewhere) and I was too impatient to look and then order them, so I bought spray paint and painted a pair no one uses! They turned out amazing and I love them!! Hurhurhur Now I must spray paint ALL THE SHOES!
My Cosmo head should arrive tomorrow, and I'll get to see how it looks with Jean and Gambit, if it's good, I may have to cave and put a faceup on it. I am not sure I can wait to find out if it's a good match for the body or not. I want to make a Wolverine NOW!
That's all I have. I hope everyone in the states has a great Holiday (though mine doesn't start until after tomorrow - boo)! And everyone else has a good weekend! and rest of the week! I'm off to find some chocolate! <33
