SUNDAY HAZE

It's been a really rough two months, with the added bonus of learning a new job. As happy as I am to have gotten my transfer I'm thinking that leaving the company altogether is the better option for me, so for the past couple days I've been doing nothing but coming home, submitting resumes, sleeping, and doing it all over again the next days. I'm ready for things to start looking up for me! (•‿•)


I got this package in this morning! In between upgrading everyone's bodies I just couldn't help myself but get a few clothes here and there. The top is an older piece by +d and the bottom is unknown to me. And of course the newest color fox boa from Cocoon, since apparently it's my goal to own one in every color.


Elias wearing the unknown sailor top. I don't know what's happened, but he's gone from this sort of grungy character to wearing outfits more suitable to much younger characters. The eyes he's wearing here are purple Hitomiya eyes, which I'm really loving so far!

SUMMER DAYDREAM

It's been a little over two weeks with no word from Bathus' make up artist about the chipping he arrived home with. I figure I may as well enjoy him still though. Hopefully I can find another artist to fix him. I don't want to give him a (unmodded) scar but the possibility has been rolling around my head as a quick fix.


So, Banthus and Ikaru are the only official pair or couple that I have. Mostly because once again Ikaru gets preferential treatment and Banthus was bought specifically to go with him. (•‿•) I do tend to photograph everyone with everyone though. I don't like the limits of rigid characterization. Instead I prefer to just give my dolls a general sense of feelings.


Hopefully I get the chance to play with these two again soon. I know Banthus is getting an upgrade onto the SD17 body soon, so that'll be fun! It'll be my first time seeing it in person.

A WALK IN JUNE

SWITCH had a pre-order back in April for their popular chocolate cut wig and I noticed just in time to purchase one in each of the three colors offered. They finally arrived this Monday and I just had to try the sugar black colored one on Ikaru.


It's refreshing to see him back in a light, airy look. The dark color wig also looks really good on him. It is at that sort of awkwardly long length that I struggle to style well though.


LITTLE BLACK CLOUDS

The last few days have been swelteringly hot out. I can't help but feel a bit bad for my postal worker and how many packages have come through for me this week, one of them being this cute little guy who came all the way from Russia!

I originally found oso polars work through her Flickr and have admired her art dolls from afar ever since. Her bat creatures in particular really won my heart, though I've yet to manage purchasing one when they do go up for sale.

When I happened to be browsing her Etsy shop - after again being a few moments too slow on a bat - and saw this black griffin go up it was a bit of an impulse buy, but one I definitely don't regret!

PASTEL RABBIT

My new 50mm lens arrived today and I am absolutely in love. I know a lot of people say that you can take great photographs even with the most basic point-and-shoot cameras, but wow. What a difference! I can hardly wait to get to play around with it some more.

Rabbit Twins earrings by Apple Cinnamon
I discovered this persons work through some of the people I follow on Twitter. They're so lovely! Very delicate with a lot of sparkling details. (。’▽’。)♡
