Bought two lamps to help with my photo taking. Got the wrong bulb at first, but today I managed to get correct sized ones. Guess this hobby taught me how to buy light bulbs too (haha?) :P

Tested the light by taking some photos. I won't lie and say the pictures are amazing, but they certainly would have been if I had a good camera. I see the need to buy tracing paper, and a big piece of paper as backdrop too.

New year, New resolutions



I'm very excited for the new year because although I had suffered alot of heartache last year, I gained much more positive things, one of which was my love for BJDs!

Here's to hoping that 2011 will also be a wonderful year~

Well I realised that there was an update! Hmm... Not yet a doll but nevertheless an update. He is a character doll of Sebastian Michaelis from Kuroshitsuji, the Demon Butler. He is possibly my dream doll so I was hoping very hard to be able to get him one day. Thanks to the D.I.M.'s Minimee, and GO on DOA, I managed to join a GO that was ordering Sebastian (along with 4 other characters). However, since I already have a Ciel, and I do not watch the anime, I only went for Sebastian. There's still Grell right? Honestly, he is my favourite to materialise, not because of his character, but because of his style which I am so in love with! However, since the GO was probably going to get a teeth-barring sculpt, I decided to place my own individual order for a tongue sticking out version.

Both orders had been placed and I have approved of Grell's sculpt after minor modifications. Sebastian's preview came out horrible and looked nothing like him. After some modifications here and there using photoshop, I managed to come up with the perfect Sebastian, and the modifications have been submitted to Denny. Can't wait till the modification pictures are released :)

Here are the final version of Grell and Modification lines for Sebastian.

Hoping it won't be long from now!

Change of name?

It's been too long since my last post, so I decided to update this a little before the end of the year!

Not much change has taken place, although I have moved my dolls around my room since I felt that leaving them at the side table somehow placed them too far out of my sight and thus I played less with them. Now my twins are on my table and Misaki and Zen (shall call her that at this point of time) are at my bed side. They look very different but somehow good together. Considering the fact that I bought Zen to be an opposite of Misaki, it makes sense.

The name Mika didn't seem to fit my newest girl, DOC T. Zen. I feel guilty because I have yet to figure out her identity too. Somehow I'm having trouble bonding with her because I just don't know how I should visualise her...

I think I have found some very good names for her now. My first choice is Rin, which means dignified and cold. It seems to fit the character I imagined for her, a wealthy but cold hearted lady who listens to no one. But the name seems too childish for that sort of character. Another option was Emi. I shall sleep on it.

The idea of a kimono is still very, very tempting, and I am most probably going to get her one. Have not yet decided on the style of kimono though. Part of me wants her to wear a long over-flowing style kimono (more like an top layer actually), and another part of me sticks with the Miko idea. Somewhere along the way, my mind has been toying with the idea of a modern twist type of kimono, short and girly, very playful. I will think further on this... Can't afford to randomly buy items now that I'm trying to reduce my spending on dolls! So far I've been very tempted but judging on how fast my family has grown, there's no spending room for even one more!

Been toying with the idea of giving my dolls family names. Hmm... Shall sleep on this too. Hanaki Rin? Morizawa Shin to Morizawa Akira? Will take time to think for the rest. Eiji is in for a name change as well. I shall think hard for his...

For now, this has just been a long rant so I shall stop here! Will update soon, I promise.

Well, introducing my new doll whom I just got yesterday morning!

Name: Mika
Birthday: 13th December (2010)
Sculpt: Dream of Doll, DOC Tender Zen (NS)
Body: Dream of Doll, DOC New Girl's Body (NS)
Wig: DOD
Eyes: DOD

Background story: She's a special one because I bought her on impulse. But that's not what makes her special. The reason why I treat her differently is because she arrived on the date that I now consider the most important day ever in my entire life - it was the day that I managed to meet my lifelong heroes, Linkin Park. Not only that, I was lucky enough to be part of the Meet and Greet session, and got autographs from the entire band, as well as shook all their hands (well except for Brad cause he kind of has a hand-shaking phobia or something). I originally did not want to give her a Japanese name, but changed my mind that night after the concert because I thought Mika was close to "Mike", the keyboardist/singer/guitarist/mastermind. A little background info here. I am a fan of Chester, not so much of Mike. But after seeing him yesterday, I changed my mind about Mike. He is someone who is happy, cheerful, but also able to be serious when the time calls for it. With this newfound respect, I decided to name the then nameless Mika, Mika. This is because I felt the same way about her. I liked her sculpt and all, but I just couldn't seem to bond. However, the more I looked at her, the more I began to understand her, and after playing around a little more, I found her character. Anyway enough of this long story. I intend for her to be a Miko, but am still deciding if I should make or buy her outfit... Till then!
