New faceups

Finally had a few sunny days to do Baschet and Armonica’s faceups. I was a bit impatient and started coating them when it was still really cloudy, and some of the MSC turned white. Though it’s near the back and can’t be seen normally.

Also redid Arietta’s faceup yet again, third time lucky?

Animania 2011

Attended the second day of Animania yesterday ^^. For some reason alot of my photos turned out blurry, maybe there was not enough light?

How cute is this little cat! He’s a Pipos Star Cheshire and belongs to Krisome. Someday I want both of the Pipos Chesires <3

I also won the dress making competition. The prize was a Leeke PureRose Skin Khal Vampire. I’m not too sure what to do with him, I don’t have any clothes for him at all XD. His skin colour is very interesting, it’s like a grey/purple/pink colour, and his head is much narrower than my other dolls.

My Volks SDGr Alice arrived yesterday morning, her name is Baschet ^^
I just realised today that her birthday is 1 day after Arietta’s, my Little Alice XD

She makes Carillon look much younger and smaller. I think between her and Carillon I no longer feel the need to buy a Luna so much. I love her box, you can see it in the photo above, the bottom has been printed with book spines <3. There’s lots of fairy tales, and the occasional Volks book that has snuck in. Her faceup is quite nice too, I only wish there was less purple around her eyes and more red.

The main thing I’m worried about now is her high heel legs. I’ve only had her wear them for one day and already the s-hook in the knee has started to scratch the inside of her legs. I don’t know if eventually it will just chip out a chunk. Interestingly, her non high heel feet came with a ball joint that has a groove in it, so that it can click onto her leg and sort of make a high heel position:

Standing with heels this way is less stable than the other legs, but it’s possible. Volks have also not put kips in her neck, giving her head the tendency to fall backwards randomly. And also when she is sitting, she likes to lean backwards and eventually fall over. But I think this is mainly because I haven’t gotten used to how her body works yet. Overall though I like her body much more than the SD10 body, it’s very cute and girlish *-*
