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!
