Soom Pel in a Vampire Form..with hooves

So right on the heels of the awesome Breccia, comes a Little Gem from Soom, a new version of Pel (formerly a Thunderbird Summoner). I'm not sure what flavor of sinister character this Pel is..undead bird? Zombie courtesan? Evil magic User? I like the yellow eyes in the gray skin, whatever else is going on. As usual you can get the outfits separately if you have a Little Gem at home that wants to try out a little necromancy on the side. Here are the head/ resin options:

Oh wait, there are little feets! Hooves to be exact, sold as a separate option:

Hello, Sherlock

Soom has just released an Idealian that looks like a cuter version of Benedict Cumberbatch, he's quite adorable and the accessories are really fun. A pipe! Check him out here:

Props to Julia Shin's photography!

Dollshe Classic Returns

These guys are back! I had forgotten how cute they were. You will wait ages but they will come eventually. :D

I have a lot of doll stuff going on, but I am also trying to get ready for winter so I haven't posted every day, though I am still working on Pele and am excited to share photos. Hopefully I will have some later tonight!

Pele's Wig




I'm about 2/3 of the way done--I need to finish one of her extensions in the front, fix her bangs, and even out the bottom. I really want to stick a bunch of beads on the front as counterweights, but it might be a bit much. Working with yarn is so pleasant!

Iplehouse Baron and Soom Pretty in Pink Breccia

A handsome HID hunk has been rolled out by Iplehouse--he seems to be a god of Lightning? He's lovely and you can see many more photos here:

And for me personally WAY MORE TEMPTING is a reissue of Breccia, now in Baby Pink with Romantic eyes....oooo. SO PRETTY. You can stare at her here (and ponder your bank account).

Meanwhile my car has, alas, keeled over-- on the way to emissions testing station.XD It has been towed back and the shop says that the scrap fee should cover the cost of the tow. I find out tomorrow. It was a good car and I will miss it, but I think the frame itself was rusting out, so it was probably not really driveable any more. I will have to make friends with the truck and the Nissan Altima, aka the rolling computer.

Madame Pele and an Arm or Two

So here are the arms--they are coming along. I am not sure if I should leave the "rivet holes " on the Automail arm as is, or make little "screwheads" to fit in them Both arms work ok and the places that would wear, like the shoulder and elbow, I left bare; so they won't chip. Since the hands are dyed, they should be OK too. Hopefully I can spray them tomorrow while it is dry, and get a good seal on the acrylic paint. I have some great wolfie fabric and possibly some coppery lining fabric to make a cloak as well.

While I was waiting for the paint to dry on the arms, I worked on the Iplehouse Aaliyah--it seemed like a shame to take off her candy makeup, but I finally did. I also modded her fangs to be less cartoony large, though I think I want to still mod her left fang a bit more to make it smoother. It turns out that the xacto is a better modding tool than the dremel since the dremel kicks up so much dust it's hard to see what you are doing, or control it. To review, her original faceup:

Here's where I stripped off the paint and attempted some paperclay mods. Paperclay just fell off afterwards, sadly :D


Here's the painted face with the new tooth mods:


Now I have a start on her "real" wig as well:


I still have a problem of "Wat do" with her cute Decora-style hands--they
are so well done, it feels like vandalism to clean them; so I will either 
make some of my own or purchase another set-- maybe jointed ones.

Nadine's Flickr

I have posted the link to Nadine's Flickr here before, but I think it's time for a repost--if you need a laugh, check out her Eggsy pix, also other doll, family pix, turkeys, terrible puns and random goof that makes me laugh. You will be glad you did. :D

Fairyland Rens the Cute Harpy

Apparently Harpies have fab shoes:D They also have birdie feet, if you get the full fantasy option.
The page to check her out at Denver Doll is here:

She is more or less msd size, and very sweet for a Harpy:

The little mask is neat! I kind of want to make one now.
