Sometimes the only photos you like in a shoot are the ones that got FUBARed. But I missed this guy, so I had to post something. XD
I caved. I am just a sucker for artist sculpts, so I decided to get my “last doll” his lady friend. She’s a Ken no Kokoro Amparita 02 that I’ve wanted for so long. And she’s just so frakkin cute!
I write stories for me, but the quality I write is to a standard others can read it…otherwise it would just be like “He was sooooo hot and they should totally be together. -insert haphazard event here- PLOT TWIST!!! Yay! Now kiss!”
So I haven’t been on Tumblr much and low and behold, today I see I have just as many followers as posts I’ve made AND my first ever Monster High creation is pushing past the 450+ note bracket. To me, that gives me ALL the warm and fuzzies!
I never really talk about myself here, but I think the new found warm and fuzzies warrant a mention. I’ve been pretty absent from the BJD and art community for a couple years now after I’ve had a bunch of financial, seasonal depression, and school related issues. And I lost my two biggest doll related supporters, including my old later-turned-out-to-be-super-cray-cray roommate. That really took a big blow to my art-esteem (and well-being thanks to psycho roommate XD ), and even now I have a tough time returning to the dolls my old friends used to help me create without the bad memories. I actually have a lot more BJDs, but I don’t really touch them or photograph them anymore because of the sad feelings. So that’s my sob story, time to move on to happy things!
Fast forward to now. Now I have just moved away from school after having two awesome roommates that have restored my faith in non-cray-cray people and art, I have an awesome boyfriend who has been getting into painting 40k minis with me and loves all of my work, I have an awesome job, and low and behold I am now saving up for my first new (also awesome) doll in nearly two years. The only bad thing is I probably won’t get all of my dolls from storage for maybe another month T.T (first world problems much?) But when I do, I’m treating that moment like the biggest freakin box opening Christmas morning event EVER! It’s time I get back on the saddle now that my IRL problems are going away. I need to work on restoring my collection, improving my art and photography skills, and get back to selling MH repaints at conventions. Making Sparks was freakin fun and obviously a huge reason why I’m blathering on about this now.
So thank you for hearing me out. Now this past year since I got a Tumblr and slowly started to post just for me, I see all of the people willing to just give a simple like or reblog or follow as encouragement. Thank you! I hope I can give back to you with some more updates later…
…but sadly not for a month since my camera is also packed with my dolls T.T (oh my life is just terrible *sarcasm*)
Someday I’ll get my apartment finished and unpacked and I will have other
way cooler dolls to photograph than this one. A human character? Psssssh, boring. XD
