hehe yes!! :D The exhibition opens on the 24th~!! I’m super excited \ * 7 */ Theres also a 2 day conference in November too owo!!

Totally going to go see it when I’m at uni next week! So excite! It’s even in my building and everything. 

Look at my adorable new doll bag! It’s a sewing machine bag but it’s big enough to fit two 70cm dolls sitting in the bottom plus smaller dolls on their laps and it’s not as unweildy as a suitcase plus no strain on my shoulders! #bjd

Ugh I hate it when someone super inspires me with things they do and I want to tell them that but they’re kinda internet famous and I’m too scared

*flops*

Has anyone ever ordered at IMPLdoll? How long can it take until the doll is done?
Same question for Doll Chateau, heard it takes ages…

They’re both regular sculpts, so nothing limited, they come with face up though..

Doll Chateau is 6months, perhaps more depending on whether you order direct or through a dealer. Not sure about impldoll though.

Thank you… There goes my christmas present.. |D

Aww you could always see if any of their dealers have the sculpt you want in stock? Or try secondhand?

Got my gi this week at karate. I feel like I really belong now!

He’s absolutely gorgeous! I love the contrast between he dark clothing and the white hair!

Ah thankyou so much! I was a little bit nervous how he’d look with all that white hair but it really brings out the creamy-ness of his resin so he doesn’t look too monochrome. I always knew black was his colour though. Now he just needs more clothes. 

And first proper pictures of Crow. Rather conveniently his proper wig arrived today from the lovely funnylori. It’s magnificent and so so soft! I love it! It’s hard to tell but the tails come almost to his knees. 

Crow is one of my ‘space crew’. He looks a bit scary but he’s actually quite shy and anxious. He’s a Talis, a fictional species of my own creation, hence the extra joints and teeth and stuff. He’s married to Elonn who will be a Granado Gabe in bronze (just gotta wait for a re-release). 

Technical stuff wise he’s a Doll Factory Lachlan head with a modded teeth piece on a Doll Chateau Y-03 body. I removed the extra neck piece but other than that I just plunked the head on. His neck is very gappy but his wig hides that. Resin match wise it’s not an exact match but it’s pretty close. The DC resin is a bit darker/more yellowy but not a lot. Proportion wise, he took a bit of getting used to because he is a larger SD head (takes a 9-10 inch wig) but I think his face is narrow enough that he doesn’t look too weird. Either way i think he looks adorable.  His body is currently un-modded but I’m saving up to have him modded to a boy. His faceup is by me and his wig is a custom order from Funnylori. 

That was a lot of words…oops…

Box opening (finally). This is Crow’s Doll Chateau Y-03 body that i god secondhand off DoA. The DC box came wrapped in heaps of bubble wrap and really well protected. I think it saw some rough treatment during shipping though, the outside packaging was super gross and dirty. Everything was amazingly well packed and the seller included a ton of extras as compensation for paypal fees. Those eyes are all silicone! The body was also wrapped amazingly well and the jointed hands and feet were super well padded. The body itself is super amazing. I adore the hands and feet and just the general shape. I also like that it doesn’t feel too light or tiny.

Proper intro photos of Crow will come soon!

Leg warmer prototype! Made this for crow because his pants are all too short! #bjd #knitting
