Hoping to update more often...

... and to post some about my faceups! I've been taking commissions since January, and am staying really busy with them which is great! I currently have several heads in-house. I just finished up an AoD Adonis (I think that's right) for 2metaldog, he'll be packed up this evening to be shipped home. I have two actually in-progress right now, a Puki Pipi faceplate for Crystallilly and a Minifee Shiwoo for SnyderOfBerlin. Waiting their turn are a Volks F-08 and a Kaye Wiggs Pepper for Playdoll. There's another coming in very soon, also. I have several of my own who could use updated faceups, but they're going to have to wait their turns. 

The Puki faceplate is an interesting case, because I'm really just doing the lips and attempting to keep the rest of the existing faceup. So far it's working out pretty well! Pipis seem to like pink, though, as no matter what I put on her lips last night they ended up the default pink. Another layer or two with MSC between should get it to the dusty rose color I'm aiming for.

The MNF Shiwoo is also different than my usual commissions, his owner wants piercings for him so I actually drilled his ears! He has a standard ear piercing in each lobe and two upper cartilage piercings drilled. The two upper ones will get silver jump rings put in before he goes home. He'll also get glued facial piercings once his faceup is complete. He's all sealed and ready to go as of last night, so I'll be starting on the faceup this evening. I'll probably do the base sealing on the other two heads while I'm spraying tonight.

I'm hoping to get as much as possible done this week and weekend while the weather is nice. I'd also like to get outside and take some photos of my dolls soon. I still don't have any photos showing Jack's tiny teeth! Another motivation for getting as much done as possible? Due to some overtime giving me a nice paycheck, combined with saving up and faceup commission earnings, I FINALLY was able to order the last major character that was missing from my doll crew. Samuel, a Dollmore suntan Pado boy, has been ordered. He's the captain of my pirate crew. I'm hoping to be caught up enough on faceups to be able to do his when he arrives! I'm not sure how long the Dollmore wait is right now, but I'm guessing maybe 3-5 weeks? I'm hoping for less, of course.

Good to hear that you're keeping busy with the faceup! It's so exciting that you're finishing up your pirate crew. I've got two families of siblings within my larger group and it always makes me extra happy when I finish reuniting everyone.

Thanks! I'm so excited Sam is coming home. I'm sure more will end up joining the crew eventually, buy he's the last of the planned ones and as captain is most important! Hopefully my pirates will get a photostory now, they've kind of been ignored in favor of the other crew most of the time.

Some day Unidoll will ship..

I think I'm sending Khef to you in June. He has several chips and dings and I'd really like a less dramatic face up for him.

Oh that would be awesome! He's such a cutie.

Waiting for dolls to ship is sort of fun and not-fun for me... sometimes I'm cool with the anticipation and sometimes not. Dollmore has a reputation for being fast, though, so I'm impatient with them. It's only been like 3 days! Seems like Unidoll is taking quite a while. I imagine they got a rush of orders when they announced the discontinuing though.

I'm betting they really didn't anticipate this many orders when they discontinued Ark & Jace. Ahh well Tias will be here Monday and my Ricky head so I guess I can wait a bit for Tolly.
