Alright, so I went through the other flower photos too, and edited a few of them. I took these on June 8th. Taking grey skinned dolls to a location with a lot of green is not very flattering, I know this, and yet I still took two of them there, what is wrong with me? These are not amazing, but at least there are flowers? (I’m trying very hard to ignore those damn dandelions, too.)
Hi, I’ve been a little quiet lately. Break from dolls, break from sewing. No break from painting dolls though, but it’s going sinfully slow and I’m really ashamed about it. But hopefully I’ll have most of the commissions done in a week or so, as long as the weather cooperates.
Anyway, it snowed the other morning so I rushed outside for a few fresh snow snapshots with Hexia (because she was convenient). Nothing special but got me off my ass and outside for a good 20 minutes at least.
More Hexia. I found this place while taking our cat out for a walk and just knew I had to come back here. Unfortunately, it was kind of dark today and I couldn’t really take advantage of the really pretty stream at the location, but maybe some other time. There was this pond-like area in it that looked like a siren could live in it (ideas, so many ideas). It was really small (doll size) and yet very deep. At first glance I thought the water would be up to my hips, but I tested it with a long branch and the bottom was so soft that I would’ve sunk in it chest deep. It was really quite magical and yet a little bit creepy. I will definitely take advantage of the location again. Towards the end some old dude came to the area and instead of using the ready made path, he decided it would be better to walk on the forest side and he was making a ton of noice stepping on branches all over the place. It was just weird.
This isn’t quite a proper photo story, although I filled the spaces with text, but it isn’t quite a shoot either. So, yeah. Anyone interested enough can read it and the rest can just look at the (slightly repetitive) photos.
Era was definitely a being of light. Any way you looked at it, she belonged out there in the brightness. Even when the sun wasn’t out, she seemed to have a glowing aura around her.
I ordered Withdoll’s Dark Vera in their new pale brown skin tone back in February with a 3-month layaway. A first time I ever used a layaway on a doll purchase. I don’t usually feel comfortable buying something if I don’t have the money saved up, but it was Withdoll so I felt a little more at ease sending the payments piece by piece (since I’ve talked to them a lot). I spent every month scraping up the funds for the next installment and kept pushing back my plans to get the rest of the stuff she needs: mainly eyes and shoes. I managed to get her a wig, but it still needs a lot of work although I’ve already straightened and cut it.
Withdoll shipped her like a week after I’d finished the layaway so I really didn’t have time to get her anything. But here she is, still incomplete, but so lovely!
