I’m really on a roll. Commissions aren’t moving as well as photos, but it feels like it’s been forever since I’ve actually enjoyed taking photos. Lately, it’s just been me shooting sales or commission stuff. Feels good to do something for myself for a change -even if it’s just taking photo.
We removed the netting from around the cherry tree yesterday, because I’m pretty sure the hares won’t be eating it anymore. I made this swing a while ago but the weather hasn’t allowed me to test it -and the tree was inaccessible anyway. I also have an SD size, but that will have to be tested later (I have some niiiice plans for that one). ):D
I was only supposed to test the swing, but this turned into two mini-shoots. First one was Avis when I was just setting it up, and then I took Min Ki there too, because I quickly -finally- gave him a manicure and then felt inspired by him.
Been neglecting my blog for a while. Sorry for not replying to comments either. I’ve been painting and sewing and there’s still tons and tons to do.
Currently I’m trying to work on matching dresses for Delmia and Prisca, a chiffon dress for sale and a new outfit for Iria. After that I should make a few SD shirt patterns, sew some msd shorts and unisex hoodies for sale. As well as a few “Dany dresses” for sale but I’m still missing some fabrics. :/
Yesterday, I updated my Etsy shop with some casual collection items (skirts and simple shirts). Some modeling photos:
I took these a few days ago already because I got tired of waiting for snowfall. I am still seeing if it would snow during the weekend, though. At least it’ll get colder. <3 These are quite repetitive because the sun came out and limited my angles.
I’ll have a shoot with Avis and this outfit as soon as the weather allows it. I only have 3 snapshots for now.
I finally finished Avis’ version of this jacket, as the one I made for mnf!Lilya doesn’t fit anyone else, and I’ve since sold my mnf body. The skirt is also slightly short so I’m thinking of making a longer underskirt to go with this but we’ll see what I end up doing.
Mizya visited me again and we took more trips to the lake. I knew the last time was probably a perfect day that would not repeat itself. And it didn’t. The first time we went in the morning it was cold and extremely gloomy. The sky wasn’t visible at all, anywhere. Most of the photos look like it’s about to rain any minute. And, of course, the second time we went there was not a single cloud in the sky at all. Talk about extremes. I’m not a fan of photographing dolls in direct sunlight -at all, and lost most of my interest and didn’t even get to try some of the ideas I had.
Oh my god. Mizya and I had so much fun today. We took a trip to the lake with our dolls and were pleased to find that the beach was almost empty. There was a mother with two kids when we went, and when they left some more kids + parent came. Actually each time a group left, another arrived, but we did have moments where it was just the two of us. You have no idea how rare that is. Usually during summer the only time the beach is empty is between 4AM-7AM. Perfect day. It was cool but not cold and the water was fine. The sun didn’t come out too much (but we did manage to have all kinds of weather; cloudy, windy, rain, sunshine, more cloudy) and the photos came out fine.
We spent two hours crawling and squatting in the shallow. My most used pose was me on my knees with elbow(s) in the water, just holding the camera above water -and butt up in the air (usually in the direction of the occasional swimmers), lolol. I didn’t have full swimgear, just the bottom half of a bikini. Otherwise I would’ve gone for a swim before we left.
Avis did some faceplants in the water but managed to keep her eyelashes on. I’ve glued them on pretty well and the glue needs to be longer in the water to go soft, so yay. She did lose her sueding, though so I need to re-do that. But I would’ve needed to do that soon anyway.
I’m probably dumping most of my not-so-good photos here from now on too. Flickr used to be my place to post crap at, but haha, they changed it and it’s so slow at loading (especially if I have torrents running) I don’t feel like going there at all. Plus the new layout offends my eyes. At least nobody can go and change the look of this blog while I’m not looking, so…
Random photo dump: we have some Prisca, Lily/Avis and Seb/Null.
I really wanted to order a grey Narae in December to be a vampire character, but decided against it due to lack of funds and the fact that I thought it might be too dark a grey. They called it light grey, but there really were no good photos of it (there still aren’t >_>), so I didn’t want to risk it. White skin would’ve been another option, but I already have a white narae body and not really wanting another.
Anyway, Avis will now substitute. xD She can do all sorts of crazy cosplays and stuff anyway, so it’s fine. And instead of being actually productive and sewing her a corset, I just used the SODA one I got yesterday. Luckily it’s not that well fitted in the cups, so it doesn’t look huge on her.
