12.31.37 - Welcome Friends!

The main reason this journal is locked is so I can keep track of who is looking at it, therefore I will almost always add people if you come to say hello. If I don't add you, there's probably a good reason - whatever it may be. Just please, please say something, ya know, tell me how you found me or what we have in common. I promise I don't bite... hard.

In DALLAS. With ashbet! Having a fantastical time but being sick. All three of us have a nasssty cold! Plague and Pestilence. So we've been enjoying each other's company and eaten good food and kitbashed some Monster High dolls. Well, sort of. I'd never repainted a vinyl doll at this scale before so it was interesting. We went to Walmart, got a doll, then headed over to Michael's, where we found an appropriate brush and some cheapy pastels (cause, hey, it's just a 10$ doll). This is what I made:

I think I had more fun doing the hair than I did giving her a face. Her eyes are a little too far apart, and I had no idea what the heck I was doing, but I'm happy with her for now. :)

Oh yeah... Also. A month or so ago I got a new-to-me Doll, so I brought her with me. She still has the default face-up and yes, she IS wearing goggles on her head. I think perhaps she wants to be a sky pirate?

URRRRGH! My e-mail got hacked. Sorry guys. Fixing it. NOW!
10.01.10 - Quick post...
... There will be a larger one later involving adult things, like my ability to feign domestication, refinishing linoleum floors, IKEA shopping, de-accessioning stuffage, mortgage brokers... yeah. Life.

Meanwhile, is anyone on my f-list looking for or know anyone in need of a pair of Son of Sandlar boots in Ladies size 9? I have a gently used (ie: excellent condition with a few small scrapes at the toes and minimal wear on the tread) pair of the peasant boots that need to find a new home. If you know what I'm talking about, I want $150 + shipping OBO for them. (retail is $240) They've been mink-oiled and the leather is soft and supple. If there's any interest, let me know. I'll be taking pictures tomorrow night.

This is a test post from flickr, a fancy photo sharing thing.
...or Vignette Time!

Okay so this is kind of silly, but we're seriously stuck in the house due to Snowpocalypse II! Someone came by and plowed the road... only to leave a huuuuge pile of packed snow stuff at the end of our drive, and I don't mean the driveway, I mean the little pipestem that we live off of that connects to the road! *cries*

I don't think he's going to tell us what he did, though.Collapse )
A Displaced Tea Party.

When time has been stopped, everything at that moment is forever. And always.Collapse )

It was sadly very cold, windy, and very, very grey. I didn't get to do much with them before my hands refused to work and it was clearly time to return to someplace warm. Like the car. We actually had to drive to the beach (which is two blocks away) because of flooding.

By the way, I would really like that Dollheart Alice Fantasy outfit. If anyone's selling it, well, I want it.
Basically I had the guts to do what I wanted to that day Martel face-planted on the deck and crushed the nose of the mask, since repaired with glue and paint. One of those occurrances that makes me wish I didn't have a favorite, but I can't help it, and if I could, I would have picked a different doll.

What kind of dreams does a doll that knows it's a doll have? Does it have dreams at all, and when it lies awake wondering if it has a soul, does it also wonder if soulless things can dream?

The escaped marionette finds itself alone before a great white wall in the middle of a desert wasteland.Collapse )

Today was pretty rough, so have some dolls.

Very silly and just a little lewd, at ashbet's suggestion.

Something seems very odd about these pictures too - they remind me of old magazines where the color printing isn't always registered properly. Anyway...

Awkward Conversations...Collapse )

So, last Wednesday I left for that conference in LA, and despite dreading the conference part, I actually had a good time, reacquainted myself with old friends, and learned stuff, which, after socializing, is pretty much the point of these conferences. Oh, excuse me, I suppose I should call the socialization thing "networking." Whatever.

Anyway, on Friday, batchix and her husband came and rescued me. I had an absolutely amazing time. (and am eternally grateful to them for letting me crash on the most comfortable couch ever for the next three nights!) Saturday was the fashion district, full of fabric and the find of the weekend, which was a large piece of red leather. I'd really just about given up on actual leather and was going to go get some maroonish pleather stuff we'd seen earlier in the day, but when I found the leather and saw the price tag, I knew I had to have it. I see MJ's Thriller costume somewhere in my dolls' future. I'm not sure they're pleased about that, but they don't really get much of a choice. I still need to get a teflon foot for my machine and better needles, but that's no big deal to finding the perfect material. Anyway, after that bit of fun we headed over to Little Tokyo for cute toys, edamame, and desserts. Sunday we met doll_paparazzi, harlowkitty, and Wolfe over at Volks. (Of course I caved and bought a really cute DD party dress that fits Alyce perfectly and looks like a ballet costume as well as little white slippers with pink flowers and pearls. I have a weakness for white dresses and cute shoes, apparently. LOL!) We had lunch afterwards, and I missed saying goodbye to Christy because I apparently have very bad timing, but I'm really glad I got to meet her. That evening was spent geeking out over doll!things at Mercy's...

... and all of a sudden it was Monday and after shabu shabu, it was time to head out to the airport and go home.

I think Rogue had a good time too.^^
Especially once she got to meet doll_paparazzi's Christian and play in his "house."

Bats' Sideswipe got curious too.Collapse )

Am. So. Tired!

Anyway, again, I can't seem to get things done when I'd like, but since I have the sleepy-sleepies and haven't budged from the bed and the laptop since I've been home, I finished putting this one together.

Like the last, I'm not entirely sure it works. But I did get an idea for another "doll" themed vignette. Next time. ;)

Hi Mom. English please?Collapse )
I'd been trying to get this done before Easter, but no way did that happen. Oh well. I think it's a bit long. I think I'll keep them shorter in the future. Probably not very strong either, but I think it's something I had to work out of my system. LOL! I hope it works. You'll all let me know if it doesn't, right? (Though it's not like I post these things outside of my journal, either.) I tried not to make it too silly, but translating music into a visual format doesn't always work too well. *bleh* Consider it Photoshop practice. ;)

Who, what?Collapse )

Work has been killing me and will continue to do so until this grotesquely enormous proposal is done. At least I get overtime and overtime is good.

Anyway, nothing cheery or delightful, just a vignette.

Becoming Real Forever...Collapse )
Vignette time or Kristen doesn't want to do her take-home work?

Stop hogging the bathroom!Collapse )
This format kicks my butt. I thought it was vignette time again, but now I'm a bit unsure.

What?Collapse )
08.21.08 - Self-awareness
What would happen if they suddenly became "self-aware?"

uhm. At least I don't do this often. heh.Collapse )
