I'll also be doing a posing and styling for photos panel and something on doll sizes...which I'm good at as I have them all XD
When I'm not doing a panel or workshop I'll be in the vendor room, so if you miss my panels n' stuff, come visit me there! I like to talk. I'll have Alex III with me, as he's better than a name badge for identification XD
It's hard to miss that hair.
You may remember a time or two of me mentioning that I have a roommate who sews and often makes clothes for my dolls that I can't buy anywhere - she'll be there and we'll be selling new, handmade items as well as used things and dolls. All the dolls I've been stockpiling up and not selling. So if you feel the need to buy BJDs, stop by! It'll save me from having to post them all on DOA. lol
I splurged a lot over the weekend and bought a Cricut (which autocorrect hates like mad)...so we'll have t-shirts (doll-sized) with stuff on them as well. I am the queen of vector art, so I'll try to have some original designs (gotta do it fast tho) as well as plain old boring stuffs like ribcage shirts and my personal favorite; NOPE. Who doesn't need a NOPE shirt?!? I want one for me. I'd wear it every day. There may be profanity, because Alex...but maybe people will want shirts that say F CK U or whatever ends up being on it. Or they'll just be Alex's shirts because I feel like all his shirts should be R-rated. Or at least PG13.
Because we're working on all this doll stuffs, our Etsy page is being revived. Finally. I may post a link next week or this weekend after there's more on it, but hopefully in the future it will be full and pretty. Macchi, Mini-Isis and Chester are all modeling skirts along with my roommates three girls. Of course I had to sneak my boys in there. Boys can wear skirts too! Macchi was happy...his had a Unicorn on it.
In other news, David. I am trying to prepare for my Nano book already, and I've been looking into developing David's character more since I usually run into road blocks with him, both in the comic and anything else I write. He's more important than I am often able to make him.
I have had similar trouble with the doll versions, from his eyes to his hair to his clothes (and body) he is so hard for me. So this week I started him a Pinterest board, something I should have done but was afraid too - because I thought I'd find nothing to pin in it. I'm so happy I did it finally. I feel like just finding some clothes was a huge step, and now I have a few more things that really helps me understand him better. David has always been my "boy scout" character. My version of Superman, Captain America, Cyclops (before he went cray) and Angel and Riley (Buffy) smooshed together. That's how I think of him - as Alex's polar opposite. I even figured his looks based off Alex (nose bigger, jaw squarer, eyes smaller, taller, more masculine) rather than coming up with something on it's own. Now I want to make him his own person/character....and it's hard. But starting to work. Now that I have the Cricut I can do what I've wanted to do forever which is make him a Superman shirt (Alex gets Batman. SEE HOW THEY ARE??!). Then I can start working on getting the doll a wardrobe, something I've been trying to do since day 1 of my owning him. It's not easy. He's tough. And Alex has a tendency to steal his clothes (in character that happens too so it's ok).
Speaking of Alex, it's Alex II. Don't get me started on him. He's on my list again.
But hey, shirt!! And hat really, we'll be selling hats. but not this one, it's his.
3 things of note:
I haven't replaced his eyelashes yet
You can see his eyes - they're new, Gumdrops in Periwinkle, making him the final Alex in Kara Klum form to get Urethane eyes. I love them.
He's no longer on the DC body. I couldn't take his tallness anymore. Now I love him again.
The shirts we'll be selling will not be that off the shoulder - it was a fluke, but since I draw him like that I love it. They fit SD13-SD17 but fit will vary (I tried them on David (Dollstown 15), Pilot (Volks Chris) and Gambit (Granada 64))
He looks weird to me with no tattoos.....Him and Seven are so weird and blank.
So that's it for now, hopefully I'll have more pictures after this weekend...I'm on a Kara Klum kick (like that never happens) so III is next to be shot. Heheheh shot.
He's dressed good, so it should be easy! RIGHT!
