So it's been over a month since I last posted. That's insane. Remember when I used to do this all the time?? I barely do.
If anyone is still reading this, I'm going to try to get back into the groove (the grrooooooooooveeeee) by posting anything at all. My job has been overwhelmingly busy since March, like, I don't get breaks and have zero time to do anything "extra" at all. And since 95% of my internetting happens at work *cough* this means my net-life has just died a sad death. Add that to the weather and my general lack of time and energy to do anything at all, and I've done nothing with my dolls (or art for that matter) since coming back from Florida.
I haven't even posted things for sale, and I have a lot of stuff piling up in the sales dept.
Stuff has happened, I just haven't done much with it other than a few sad photos of a comparison and Sionna's arrival.
There have been some. In fact, all of them. I'm waiting on nothing. Nothing at all. Not even a book from Amazon!
She got here, was gorgeous for all of 5 minutes, and I pulled her apart and split her up as was planned. Her outfit fit Isis (she's still wearing it), Sage has her body, and her head is on the old Delf body, with Anna's clothes and wig. That's pretty much all I did with her.
Got him this week. Nice head, but looks nothing like the pictures so I'll eventually be selling him.
Grabbed a head second-hand. Perfect for Gabriel, I'm pleased with my choice....now to get her a body....
Blue fairy Robin
I was set on making my AR Cien work for Raphael in my last entry....and two days later I bought a body on DOA for cheaps and a week or so after that grabbed a head. They don't match, but I've been working on redoing Raphs character completely so I'm pretty happy with my decision.
Dollmore Dollpire Grammy
Ok, this was a total impulse buy. When I contacted the seller of the Supia head she somehow talked me into buying her Dollpire. XD She didn't have to try too hard....Grammy is WS, and A Dollpire kid, something I've been wanting since DM came out with their DPs. She has a gorgeous faceup and I was pretty set on buying her before I even saw photos. I was a little concerned about her sculpt since I have never been interested in Grammy or even really looked at it, but I should not have been - she's perfect for me. She's got that vague Dollstown-esque look to her I love and is exactly what I wanted when I owned my DMK Vian years ago. So she is a huge win.
The bad thing about all these arrivals is that (story of my life) they all showed up within days of one another....so I have been a little overwhelmed by all of them. I'm taking it slow -- the new Raphael stayed in a box for awhile and I got him out just last weekend, Grammy has been hanging out with me a little more but other than finding a wig I kind of like for her for now, I've done about nothing constructive with her. She doesn't even have a name though I'm leaning toward Wraith. She hangs out with Ghost, my DZ Carter. They're even dressed similar right now XD
None of my blank dolls have received faces since like, November....so Benedict is still blank. However he's spawned a whole universe at this point that I never would have even thought of doing. In fact, I think it needs it's own post so I won't go into it here. Luckily I didn't need to buy anything for this latest project, though I'm eventually going to need clothes. That doesn't count anyway XD
So that's been my doll-life lately. I'm slowly getting ready for Doll-A-Kon, but the reality of it has yet to hit me.....maybe this weekend it will XD
Also I missed Alex's birthday. It was may 6. I don't normally care about my doll's birthdays but since his arrival got me into the hobby I usually try to recognize it. Not this year! Totally missed. Luckily he's nicely dressed so I will try to take him somewhere and get photos of him someday. I took some of Tween on my birthday but never even edited any of them :\
