Hard at play

The kidz got a brand new billard table today, though it seems Chica is not amused. She claims the surface is too smooth :-/. And I admit she's right about that. I need to cover it with green felt.

Finished the Peter Pan costume yesterday

 Still suffering from the flu, but at least I'm well enough to finally finish the Peter Pan costume for H.V.
I think it turned out rather nice, considering the fact, that the overall design first seemed really strange to me. Guess I still prefer the traditional Peter Pan costume? ;) Anyway, the camouflage version from the movie is pretty interesting, too.

Glam Boots xD

Well, seems I finally figured out what to do with those few plateau boots I'm still left with. Oh those dire reminiscences of the days when almost all shoes for BJDs that were available would come with such hilarious plateaus.

So the idea is the following, if they already look crazy and hopelessly seventies, why not go the whole way? I've started pimping them up and intend to make some glittery, ultimately tacky 70s Rock Star boots of them. Yay. Next up will be some bell bottom hipster pants to thematically go with them. Still looking for a volunteer among my dolls, though.

Note to self: will need to watch out for some tiny disco ball pendants to replace the crosses on the boots. :-/

Heart shaped Bokeh

Had some fun with my camera today making funny Bokeh filter shapes for it. This was the heart shaped one. Can you tell?

Elfdoll Ruru

Last week I had the chance to string a lovely Elfdoll Ruru for one of my friends. It was the first time I could see an Elfdoll in person and I have to admit she is just lovely. I also really liked her tan skin color. It's a lovely tan, very consistent and without any blotchy spots :). The only part of her that looks slightly different in color is her face, but that's just because of the MSC which tends to lighten up darker resin colors.
 Her strings and stringing system really is something you have to get used to. She's on the old body and Elfdoll uses a little ring to hold the strings in the head instead of an S-Hook which really doesn't make your life easier when trying to restring it.

Busy working on commissions

Lately I've found myself pretty busy working on sewing commissions. I don't even know how I got into that, but I found myself suddenly overwhelmed with sewing requests lately so that I now even have an official waitlist (points to the right sidebar). So if you don't get to read as many comments and posts in the forums as usually it's most likely, because I'm spending my little spare time behind my sewing machine ;).

Other things keep me busy, too. See the picture above? It's taken 500 meters down the street from where I live. Pretty wet, eh? Yes, after the really snowy month of December, January has brought us warm weather and the melting snow caused some pretty floods throughout the country. It's not exactly Brisbane, but still: Do not want.

Speaking of which, the delays in parcel transit that were caused by the heavy snow fall around December are obviously still not resolved. I'm still waiting for two packages from the US, one sent back in mid December, the other one January 3rd and there's been no update in the tracking for neither of them for the last 10 days :(.

Chibi Newt Preorder

Since there is currently a preorder for the Chibi version of Newt, I thought I'd share a picture of my (original sized) Newt. I real...
