Naomi's Corset

Image
It's very cheery and French and quite possibly not Naomi's style (Naomi is an Elfdoll Vivian that belongs to Sicktress, and seems to be a kick-ass Japanese demon, but I am not sure) Anyway, Naomi is quite naked at the moment and I had a lot of fun making this, and I might make her some more stuff. (It's hard to be scary with no pants, I think). Two more pictures:



Along Came A Spider

Image
Yes, it's a Souldoll Junia and she has 4 arms--she really should have two more-- because right now she is Junia Bug, but adorable all the same. Best of all, no creepy spider body, just regular human legs. You can also just get the normal 2 arms in the "Junia Human" form, but I like the little teef. Here is a full-length picture:

Cutie pie blank face:

4 arm body:

One of the fun things about her is that you can get different heads! In fact, you can ask for most of the female Soul Kid heads. Here is the list:

I laughed when I saw Maa Ba on there--she is supposed to be a one-eyed pirate lass but she could easily pass for a drunk debutante--here is her head:

I think this would be a hilarious head for the bug body :D There is also a fine choice of resin colors:

I do have to warn you that the recent Normal has been pretty pink, like MaaBa's head up there, and the "Dove Gray" is in fact a pretty aggressive gray- blue --the first photo up top shows what I think is t…

Creature Doll Alisa

Image
She has horns(it's a little hard to see in this photo), she is MSD sized at 48 cm tall, she wears 8mm eyes, and you can get her dress, shoes and a scythe. For a doll that size, she has really beautiful details and hands. The company is new to me, but the sculptor sounds familiar--I wonder if Vermont Chick (who does the As the Resin World Turns blog) would know something about the sculptor--the name is Park Tae-Wong, and I need to look around and see if maybe they do Soom things as well.

Another pic:



You can get her in gray, white or Normal Pink. Since it looks like maybe they are a new company, even though they have layaway I would say put her on a card that you can retrieve your money from if they go belly up, and pay it all at once. Shipping is via EMS.

Oh, this company did Phyllis! I like Phyllis, but she is even more mysterious than Alisa--she is Limited, but has no order period, and the 600.00 seems to include her fullset? It looks like you can still buy her, and she is very …

An Iranian-born popstar with a segway, a sketchy looking vitamin drink, and fireworks!

Harajuku Girls

Not the official version, but the one I would have made :D Super kawaii

Alicia Seahorse

It's the Fairyland Halloween event! I linked to Denver Doll because I am here in the US, but she is at Fairyland Central as well :D

 Alicia is as cute as a bug's ear, and Minifee sized, but of course there is a problem:

So You Need A Practice Head/ The Cuckoo Fairy

Image
Alice's Collections has one in stock, $20.00 (plus shipping, it might be able to go airmail to be cheaper than EMS). There is another one but I thought this one was cuter.

I was on Alice's Collections to look at a 69cm  Loongsoul Fairy, the Cuckoo Fairy:

Since she was on sale, and Girrl assured me that she would be cast and shipped in my lifetime, I asked for her for my birthday. I got the wig (I am not sure if the fancy upper part is included) and the faceup.  I also got body blushing, which I may regret since the sample they show in Doll Parts is really, reallly pink..but if it's way too much, I might be able to tone it down with some gold powder. I also got the Medium bust--Loongsoul girls come in S(exy) M(assive) and L(ord Help Us). I think the sample you see above is the Small.

 Be warned that if you want heel feet, you need to go to Doll Parts and get them there; "flat feet only" is the default included style. I would actually recommend the Heel Legs for s…

Mirodoll Corset Progress, and Stuff At The Mall

Image
I need to redo the cup pattern, since once the top hem is in, there isn't enough fabric to cover her--so trim to the rescue! more beads, trim and lacings in the back will happen next.

We went to the Fox Hills Mall on Saturday, and wandered around the upper level of Round1. It looks like something designed by Ridley Scott and sounds like you are inside a pinball machine with Dolby Sound. It's great. If I was going to play I would bring earplugs. Here is a tiny sample of what is there (it's a HUGE place):


Sort of black light glow carpet:
Elevator Action Death Parade! (I think the holding company for Round One is Japanese)


Mysterious Prize Item Kaiju:
In the basement of Macy's, Christmas is tiptoeing in (it's not even Halloween, you animals!)
And at the Merry Go Round, the Seal has some kind of dire secret it just told the Horse (probably not a true story).
It was a fun, fun day.

Cat Delivery Notice

Karl Kofoed sent me this, it came from this Tumblr:

Which was so fun, I followed her :D I think she must have a cat.

Mirodoll Muscle Body Corset Pattern

Image
This is the test pattern; and I will show you how I get these done--I start out with the doll and some tape and Kleenex:

I use tape to mold around the figure, taping over the Kleenex so the tape sticks to the body in just a few tiny places (enough to hold it on, barely). I only do one side so I can peel it off without using scissors. The pattern pieces can be flipped over to make both the left and right sides at the end.



Once I cover the areas I want, I take a pen and mark where I will cut, and I make notes on what the different pieces go to, like Center Front, Center Back, Side etc.. Also I write what doll it is for :D

I am trying to break the pattern apart in the places that will be the "curviest" so I will end up with a flat pattern.



Peel off your proto-pattern carefully...

Lumpy parts that stick up might need to be split for darts.


Now everything is mostly flat. Now I need to trace around these on regular paper or tracing paper, and add the tiny seam allowance: (size of…

Sicktress/Mirodoll Muscle Body Measurements

Image
(This always reminds me of Leeloo from the Fifth Element) :D But here are the measurements for the body:

9 cm around the top of the neck
19 cm for a jewel neckline around trapezoids (neck base)
9 cm around the upper arm (bicep)
8.5 cm around the forearm
6 cm wrist
9 cm widest part of hand (for sleeves)
21.5 cm from the edge of the shoulder of the torso, to the wrist
22 cm from the front collarbone to the mobility joint, over the bust. (About the length of a shirt/tunic)
20.5 nape of the neck to the mobility joint, over the butt, in back (the back length of a shirt/tunic)
12 cm bust point to hip front, laying flat (like a corset)
11 cm bustline in back to hip (corset back)
34.5 around the shoulders (like for a cloak)
56 cm nape of neck to floor in back (straight down, add more for a cloak to trail on the ground)
30 cm around the biggest part of the bust, only on the upper plate (so I would get the maximum measurement)
18 cm around the waist
20 cm crotch from waist in front to waist in…

Sicktress/Miro new body part 2!

Image
Sicktress' Mirodoll Muscle Body Part One ------ Okay, today I redid the string so it has the knot in the torso, and not coming out of the neck, and I investigated some clothes. The pants she is wearing are from doll.i.com according to the tag, and they fit perfectly. She is more or less SID sized, though it looks like she can wear those older Delf boy pants. I think her shoulders are a little wider, though. The shirt she has on used to belong to a bear, so it doesn't count, but EID shirts fit her fine, though a little loose in the waist. She actually has the PERFECT body for corsets, and though I hadn't thought of a snow goddess wearing an 18th century corset, I think I will make her one anyway. I think her shoes are somewhat similar to the Soom male feet in size--it's a pretty sculpt, one of my favorites out of the other girls I will put up here for comparison.

This is with Ashley, a Soom Snow White, on the body. Soom's gray is a lot warmer and more brown than the…
