The other head I decided would work is stupid Elfdoll Vivien. I saw one the other day and it has a huge resemblance to her old head - DT Rian - which I still pine for. I think she'd be perfect, if I could get one. There is one on the mp right now, but it's pricey. I might contact the owner anyway....I'd rather not pay for a faceup...but I can't put a faceup on anyone right now anyway lol so it would be better than being blank! Not that she'd get a body anytime soon. I'd like the Granado Nouveau body for her -- it's only 62cm but I was thinking about it and since I changed my scale to equal 65 = 7ft ish, 65cm would be too tall for Gabriel anyway! And I love how the Granado body poses. It would be perfect. So now I just have to make the leap and see if I can get that head on the MP....
After taking the "Week 1" Doll challenge photo (which I still haven't posted :P ) I realized I hated Alex's wig. It's a wreck and needs to be shot. I had him all dressed in about a million layers, and decided to cut his hair in an attempt to fix it, because really, it was too long. I usually only decide to cut his hair when he's so dressed I don't feel like taking his clothes off....which results in green hairs everywhere sticking to everything and getting in everything and making a huge mess. I actually ruined my favorite sweater of his because those hairs just won't come out.
I hacked at his wig for a while, and then it looked like this:
Which isn't too bad, but there are obvious issues....like that chunk I somehow missed. And the front is very straggly.
Sadly I don't think there is much I can do about how it just won't lay closer to his face -- but then I don't think most doll wigs do, so oh well. It'll never do what I want which is why I want to try to make another one out of alpaca.
Last night I cut it some more, and I think I went too short...which means I'm pretty screwed lol because I can't make another one!! I dragged him with me today, so I'll try and get more pictures later. I really need to wash the thing....I should do that tonight and make him wear the fur wig lol
You can't see it in these photos, but his nose has a scratch on it too, easily fixed...but along with a lot of chips in his blushing (he's an asshole like the rest of them) I'm mad at him.
David is in much worse shape though. While taking his photo I found a HUGE scrape on his faceup. This is the Cynical head, which of his three heads is the only with a faceup right now. While I was looking at it, it just flaked away...so now it's a huge patch, not a scrape. *sigh*
So I'll be wiping that faceup too soon, and David will be out of commission.
He's not the only one. I have a few incoming, and several at home that are blank, or really need fixing, plus three heads to repair and a full doll to do for someone else, plus several of my roommates dolls. Today's temp was 7°....so exactly nothing will be happening for a while. Urg.
And autocorrect is really pissing me off. It changes EVERYTHING.
And I think I have frost bite on my thumb.
So yeah. That's about it right now. I'm really just wasting time until I finish my Week 1 writing....someday....
