Holy crap! O.O
Luckily I think everyone was okay and they got it towed out soon after-that ditch is so dangerous, it gets street level when it pours. Poor drainage in Stiener.
Steinbach flooded just a little bit. The ditch looks convincingly like the road. #car #flooding #whoops
Got my photos back from ONE photography (who was a pleasure to work with, and I could not be happier with the results) shot at night time in Old Montreal during Otakuthon.
Costume by me, more photos of it and how I made it @ Nomadic-Goldfish Cosplay
Today’s Gender of the day is: Party Rats in Party Hats
You can make beautiful legit colored bjds too. Seriously. They can look like works of art too. No they don’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Yes you might have to do more research and put some work in! That’s what’s fun to me about this hobby. Not once did I ever think “I want a giant blue oni guy…
Long post ahead too tldr: I feel a lot more pride/attachment to the dolls I customize myself and agree entirely with the above.
Every time I see the confessions or what have you explaining the viability of recasts because a lack of skin tones I think of your/Sicktress’ blue Oni. He’s absolutely beautiful, stunning, and the best part, uniquely yours. There has to be something so incredibly satisfying about being able to create your dream doll and each of your modded dolls.
I would/do feel so much pride in displaying a doll that I created; be it blue, green, orange, having hooves, wings, horns-any sort of incredible mashup, skin tone blushing match or whatever it did take to make the doll look like it popped out of the mould looking like it does rather than going to a recast because of fear, lack of funds or laziness.
Modding is scary, dyeing is scary, the possibility of a skin tone not matching is scary, but in the end, the doll will feel so much more like yours if you put the time and effort into it. I was a horrible faceup artist when I started but I knew I needed to learn how to paint my dolls faces so I would be more attached to them. That isn’t everyone’s cup of tea, and if they don’t want to take on the endeavor themselves, there are so many many talented modders out there who will work with you to create your dream doll.
I love this hobby, I love being able to create and photograph and talk with many talented people around the world. It’s expensive and I balk at prices all the time, but in the end I don’t mind waiting months for a sale, or to save up because it’s not a race and everyone should enjoy the journey.
If you are going and I don’t know that you’re going you should tell me that you’re going and we can say hello to each other!
what is the model of the free lenses honeycolor sent you? thanks ^^
Hi Yumi! they sent me Neo Glamour Aqua contacts, they’re pretty but I haven’t tried them yet.
OMG IS THAT A WEDDING DRESS IS VINNY GETTING MARRIED!?
Ahahaa you’ll have to wait and seeeeee-It’s not the dress that I want for her-but I’m entering a contest at dollism and thought I’d do a non-canon photoshoot with a dress I could whip up for her.
p.s. But.. yes, she will be. Sooon. canon-ly
Quick preview of what I’ve been working on. Big ol’ photoshoot coming soon. #bjd #doll #dress #sewing #migidoll #jina

Progress shot on my mod job on this head. On the left, we have the head that I’ve been affectionately calling “Blue” after ErrorAuthor’s redcap of the same name. On the right, you have the Dollfamily Practice head A which was the base of it.
My first time doing extreme mods and I’m pretty happy with him, I need to strip off the car body filler and reapply it because I was impatient with humidity but then-then.. paint.
Blaaaah-bubbles! Time to strip him and try again. Thanks to sicktress for the advice on taking off the car body filler. That’s going to be tomorrows adventure methinks.
I smell it in the air. It’s coming.
