First I’d like to apologize for my disappearance (if anyone actually noticed. HA).
Nothing really bad happened, unless you consider my getting blocked from this site at work bad.
Yep. It happened. No more blogging at work for me. Boo.
This disruption in what I laughingly call my routine through me off completely and I have yet to get back on track.
I’m left with two options.
1. Do it at lunch. When I have an hour and usually use it to walk, eat, read, draw and sometimes take doll photos. Ok, lunch is probably out.
2. Do it at night when I got to bed, which means dragging my laptop to my room every night. Or some nights. Which isn’t as horribly time-consuming and out-putting as I make it sound, but I don’t ever do it so it will take some remembering that I have too.
Needless to say I have yet to figure out a work around. And this really isn’t the week to be doing it – my room is a disaster after the air conditioner leaked through the ceiling and ruined my mattress. I’m currently living in the living room on an air mattress, which is eating up all my sleep. I’m mostly a zombie right now.
However I have things! Things that are goings on!
First my last post was an “emergency” sales post – my hurriedly posted sales paid off. I was able to raise enough money in time to buy not only one but two Unoas from the Noppin sales (they posted a bunch of Unoas they had in stock). Originally I really wanted a Chibi Lilin…but as the days went by and poor B-el didn’t sell out, I caved and bought him too. Noppin being Noppin shipped right away so both have been home for some time. As is usual with me, my Nemesisesses, the Unoa Butt-tab, had to be eliminated from both dolls before I could deal with them properly.
Chibi Lilin is Mini Kimi, and adorbs in all her short, chunky glory.
B-el is called Clover, in my coffee-named group with Macchi and is also a unicorns. But dark and scary. Also glittery. And floppy. He needs serious restringing. I only tightened him before…I think he needs all new string. Macchi’s like a rock…I want Clover that way too.
I really had no idea I’d like B-el so much…maybe it was because he was new and shiny? Or more in my comfort zone being kind of evil? Who knows. I love him tho. Both of the new ones need better wigs and Kimi needs new eyes before I’ll even photograph her. I hate the eye mech almost as much as the butt tabs.
Eventually I’d like to get all the parts for all the Unoas….hoping Noppin has a parts order again soon! Or the new Unoa B-grade shop….I’d totally take some B-grade parts.
I ordered another head to see if I can make a Captain Kirk. I won’t get into it in case it fails like the last one. I have high hopes however.
I ordered a Migidoll Elf Owen head, and got a 65cm Dollzone body for him in a trade. I now have Shae again as a doll. He’s pretty fabulous, though that DZ body needs some work before I can do much with him. I hate the hands, feet and omg it has butt tabs. They must go.
Having Shae in doll form means all my elves are…complete. If you call not really having clothes complete. The only one with a wardrobe is Sage. And really, I want a new body for Wyn. They’re all whole anyway. Rowan is on his body, strung with a FL neck key and just got a wig I really like from, of all places, Leekeworld. I usually can’t stand their wigs…but thanks to their current sale I have four dolls wearing them >.<
The doll formerly known as Chestnut Parline had a serious makeover right out of his old character (since I haven’t owned him all that long I feel funny calling it an old character) and I now have no idea who he is. Someday I’ll have to vent so I can figure him out. He looks a lot better (He’s a tan MNF Celine boy I got in a trade).
I am awaiting the arrival of some rRabit stuff, and confirmation of a “secret” purchase that I am a little worried about and so don’t want to talk about it yet. Otherwise I wouldn’t bother wit the whole “secret” thing since I think it’s ridiculous. But I don’t want to go on and then have it fall through. Hopefully I’ll have it soon and all will be well.
I think that’s about it.
Hopefully everyone is doing well and I can go catch up on your blogs. Stupid work. Wrecking my should-be-done-in-my-freetime-anyway stuff!!
