Inspiration perspiration by rosewarrior
Inspiration perspiration
Ever wonder what it would look lie if your doll could sweat?  Well I found out.  A fine mist, a Soom and voila! da sexy.
Houndstooth Happiness 004 by rosewarrior
Houndstooth Happiness 004
Woot!  Woot!  I found a way to mae houndstooth fabric fun.  This is my original design modeled by my msd Aerie (in her old Island Doll body with modded MNF head)  She wears  a classic long-sleeved white shirt and bow-tie, a short sleeveless bolero, matching purse and beret, all with a under-bust corset style jumper with ruffle and a half dropped waist skirt.  The main dress has halter neck styled straps, button detailing down the front and bows for accents on  the skirt , purse and beret.

Back to school time.
Satara(brunette) and Aerie model the latest uniforms for  my imaginary prep school Draconem.  Both girls wear the  basic uniforms for the fall underclassmen.

Here you meet Deimos modelling Dollmore while his two main women Vaieh (white hair) and Sarun ( burnette)  model silk dresses in dusty rose and blue handsewn  by yours truly.
So I moved this summmer.  Yay for me!  I am back in sunny Hawaii  where I call home.  Living here is hard sometimes.  I admit I am struggling to survive for the moment.  BUT...damn I am actually happy and learning that not having a lot can be good sometimes. It opens up  other creative avenues.   Like everyone else, I want a lot from my life .  For my hobbies I want a lot too.   I am still fortunate to have all my dolls.  I doubt I will ever sell any.  I actually have plans to continue building my cast and writing their stories.  What I want to do now that I started  my life over so to get  a few more things going with my  chosen art forms. So here are my goals and the reasons for them.

~ Gift myself with a DSLR camera -  I am not the greatest photographer and my artistic eye is  sort of limited, but.....I used to take some cool shots with an slr camera  long time ago.  I love my  current digital but I miss the  manual control.

~Take  better pics of my dolls for photostories - look up lightboxes and  different tutorials for  background scenes.  I tend to  make a  small corner or more,in the house,  the location(s) of offices bedrooms etc. Result is  dolls all over the house.

~Learn to make  more of the props I want for my dolls - I love the idea of polymer clay foods.  Most I have found however, are  much too small to be considered scale for my  larger dolls ( my Hounds and such sizes.) I found some great tutorials here  in Deviant and that sparked a serious wish to attempt  the art.  I will post my attempts here when I am  proudest of the result.  Not a perfectionist but darn close.

~ Post a tutorial or more on making certain props/furniture/clothes - A lot of my  props/clothing collected over the years are in storage until I can afford to ship them from the mainland.  In the meantime I need some and I found that using everyday materials is a great way to recycle and inexpensively create at the same time. I think it would be good for  some of the younger bjd owners with limited  resources.

~Start showing off my sewing - I don't always buy clothes for my dolls.  It has to be something  that I  doubt my skills in making for me to buy it or  so absolutely  wonderful and right for the doll I am thinking of.  Again I would like to show ways to create something wonderful inexpensively and still quality.  

Well those are a few of my goals
  • Watching: HAgure Keiji
  • Playing: Chutes and Ladders
  • Eating: spaghetti
  • Drinking: champagne
