SDCC

Lovin the first SDCC reveal :D  Garrott looks really great.  That Rochelle is adorable as well, I like her hat and lovely color scheme ^^

Hm, I wonder if the Monster Maker works as well as it appears to… if so… eep, that is really really cool *_*

Cool to see more pics of all the new dolls too!  I’m still really excited about the Inner Monster ones.  Can’t wait to see the reveals over the next few days!

Avea meets my in-progress centaurs, Clysdarla and PonyAnn.  …I think she may need reassurance that she’s not getting a crazy boob job XD

It’s OK not to finish a project in one day.

It’s OK to take multiple days to finish even easy projects.

It’s OK to spend only 10 minutes a day working on a project. It will get finished, as long as you keep working on it.

It’s not OK to talk yourself out of starting a project just because you…

These are all really good things to remind yourself about.

Purrudence and Purrscilla show off their new purse :)
I really like making these little felt purses.  I got the pattern from NG Creations on eBay.

Working along on building out Marsharoom, the mushroom custom’s, “cap”.

Working along on building out Marsharoom, the mushroom custom’s, “cap”.

It took me two tries, but my idea for Mo’s “hair” worked out, yay!  On my first try, the plastic I used was too weak, but on my second try, I used plastic from doll packaging and it worked out just fine.
I plan to cover up some of the plastic with sculpted “glass pieces” like the ones that are all over her head, but I want to leave some of the plastic visible and either paint it or add glitter (or both), I think that could look neat.

Okay, I think I finished Marsharoom’s hair, so I’ve started building out her “cap”.  (Ah, cheap pony beads, how would I ever sculpt without you?)

New Swim Dolls and Freaky Fusion Clips

Hmm, the new swim dolls… I think Jinafire is the one I like the most.  That hair style is neat and I really like the fabric used for her suit.  I like Clawdeen’s face and hair, but I’m not sure about the suit… it almost seems a bit too frilly for what I think of as her style.  I’m usually a big fan of Spectra dolls, but I don’t really like the suit she’s wearing.  It’s just kind of odd looking, in my opinion.  Maybe it would look better if that spikey stuff was around the bottom of the suit, not the top.

On a different note, so excited by the new clips from Freaky Fusion!  All the new hybrids seem like great characters :D  I really like the way Sirena “swims” through the air, that is so neat!  I was wondering how they would have her move around on land.  Cleolei is so pretty, wow!  It looks like the fused ghouls are going to be very entertaining too :)

Yay!  I am very happy with how Marsharoom, the mushroom custom’s, “wings” turned out.  I used up all 30-ish mushrooms I made too.  …I just realized that it’s going to be a pain in the butt to paint… but that won’t happen for awhile, so *puts that thought aside*.

I’ve also been sculpting mushrooms onto her lower legs.  I wanted them to look like the mushrooms that grow on the sides of trees.

This is also her outfit, which is mostly done.  I really like how it has turned out too, even though it’s very simple.  Her skirt sticks out so much though that I started to make her some shorts to go under it… then I realized they wouldn’t fit over her leg mushrooms, oops ^^;  (that’s what happens when I use a random body as the sewing model, not the actual doll the outfit is for…)  So, I’ll either make her some shorts or a small skirt that will fit over the mushrooms, or I may just cheat and sew the shorts onto her when she’s all done, heh.

The first Abbey (pink lips) I repainted with the fourth Abbey (brown lips) I repainted.  My style has changed a bit, eh?  …geez, am I getting worse at painting?  o_O  I hope not.  The lines on Abbey 1 look so much more delicate  …I think Abbey 4 is probably one of my weaker repaints… …  I can probably blame it partly on the neuropathy… but still…
I think next time I paint I’m gonna try really reeeeeaaaaally hard so I can make something I’m more proud of.  I also might try repainting Abbey 4’s eyes.  (I like her lips though, I’ll leave those alone.)
