Alex: STFU bitch. Give me coffee. And buy me stuff.
at least he's got clothes on now.
I am almost too exhausted to post this. Alex wears me out. And down.
I spent hours working on him....and in one ride to work in a bag he set me back hours more by somehow wrecking himself. I know he did it. I even had him wrapped, and he still managed to chip himself, get really dirty (I swear to god he's the dirtiest doll I've ever owned. I think he rolls in it when I'm not around), mess up his freaking eyes and do god knows what else to himself.
If he sat untouched on a shelf, never handled, in a clean room, he'd probably just fall apart because he could.
I shouldn't be surprised. This doll has defied all logic since I bought him. He has expressions, he changes positions, he has behavior. I tend not believe that dolls can be possessed or hold souls or anything.....except for Alex. He's off somehow. And when I say Alex, for a change I only mean this one. The other Kara Klums are gorgeous and I adore them, but the first one is just an anomaly in every possible way. If dolls can absorb vibrations or souls or something, he's got it, and won't share.
Whatever is wrong with him, I managed to get some kinda decent pictures of him.
Beware, he's shirtless. I never photograph him sans shirt. Except for Christmas. It's tradition.
So I have come to believe that I can't do the fun eyelashes anymore. It's impossible to see his eyes. You can irl, but not in photos...they disappear completely. He stole the Oscar eyes from Alex III (which was inevitable. I knew it would happen), mostly because they're smaller and easier to see. And you still can't see them. Bye bye eyelashes.
This is another new wig. It was a Monique Evelyn I got at Doll-A-Kon. Now it's an Alex-wig. I cut inches off the thing, and "styled" it , but it's Alex, so it's all over anyway.
I edited the HELL out his hand. Dollmore has the kind of resin that changes color to a point and stops. Dikadoll keeps on yellowing. His hand is so much more yellowed than he is it's awful, I only put the hands on him for this shoot so he could smoke, and then I cut the cig out anyway!!!
I still have to wipe and blush both pairs of hands and feet.
His tattoos went on fairly easily, it was just a lot of work and time consuming. I can't even express how much better they look compared to the old ones!
I don't think his back has ever been seen in photos.
Alex I has the least ink of all of them, as he's the youngest. He's missing the infinity thorns and crow (which I have yet to draw) on his left arm and the wings on his back. And one more I haven't done yet on his right hand. And there is still blank space on his rt arm that could have stuff. We'll see if I go there.
I did the ones on his back too large (which is how I roll), so when I do III who has the massive phoenix wings on his back, they'll have to be scaled down.
In case you're wondering what chipped, it was his lft nipple there....I fixed it in PS. Now I have to do it irl. Asshole. He didn't have to chip.....totally did it on purpose. Now he's sitting on my desk (shirtless. Scandal!! :O) looking smug. He knows what he did.
There are a couple things I wish I could fix, but for the most part I'm happy and not doing anymore.One more
That's the eclipse21 wig I spent a fortune on. Cause he needs more wigs. If you had any idea how much editing I had to do just to barely get his eyes visible....D: D: D:
He's lucky he's my favorite!!
