Nutcracker Suite

I just now realized, in all the hoilday rush, I totally forgot to post the Nutcracker pictures here! I posted them on DoA and on our advent calendar, but forgot to do it in the journal!

This was my Christmas present to J, recreating her favorite holiday story with our dolls. It took a whole lot of sewing but I'm super pleased with the outcome (so much so that they are still in these outfits, though I'm probably going to change everybody today).

Mountain Photos - part 1

I know, I haven't darkened the door here in ages. All my doll-energies have been focused on doing the Minimee Order for Edgeworth and Phoenix, and it hasn't left me much time for actual dolls. :p But I did take a bunch of pictures on our trip to the mountains last month, and I've finally gotten them uploaded. :p we didn't take everybody, just the H&H family (including Janus) and Valentine and Triska because I grabbed them at the last moment.

I look forward to more pictures, and maybe *gasp* photostories in the future! I just got a sweet tripod for my birthday and I can't wait to work with it. I'm hoping for a new camera in the coming months, too. *crosses fingers*

There's a crapton of large photos under the cut here.

So, without further ado:

Janus, Valentine, & Triska )

Halloween Pics and Rectory set again!

I didn't get a lot of pictures of the dolls in their Halloween getups, but there are a few. ^_^ We live in a historic downtown area that gets a hell of a lot of foot traffic for Trick or Treating, but we don't have a lot of space to store decorations so we never get to do up the front of the house as much as we'd like. (really the block goes nuts. It's like a block party.) So this year I decided to do up all the dolls in fancy dress and put them in our window for everybody to see as they stopped by for candy. The kids didn't much care; they were overstimulated already and only hoping for more candy. :p But the responses of the adults were awesome. ^_^

miscellany pics! )

[pics] A sharp-dressed hound


I have been meaning, for the past several weeks, to do a solo gallery shoot for Janus. He's been looking extra dapper in his suit (now that he has a proper tie) and I love to show him off. Especially now that hounds (and all dollshe sculpts) have become rare creatures; when we got Janus it seemed like hounds were as common as peanuts. Well, expensive peanuts. We got Janus second-hand. He had been ordered by his first owner with the works from Tensiya, fully sanded and faceuped, but he arrived to us with not much to his name and we spent a long time trying to gather up the parts of his standard dress that had not been sold with him (the chain pants, the white lace shirt, the necklace).

His arrival date to us was October 5, 2005. It was two years before I got the nerve to redo his faceup. He's always been priceless to us, but now, he really is. We're so lucky to have this doll: the mysterious, quiet, content Uncle Drosselmeyer of our little resin group.

Highwater & Holtsclaw - Episode 3


chapter 1::chapter 2

Images are large. Please give them time to load. Also it's been a long time since I did these, so I basically had to relearn everything. There may be some discrepancies with text size, etc. I hope they don't detract from the story. In the works is a webcomic-style page which will make it easier to read the episodes in order. Also, that splash page image is not Ilium. :D :D :D

...the things that happen on Sunday night around here

"You know," Joy said, approximately an hour and a half ago, "Soubi really looks like a hound."

Five seconds later I was headfirst in the wig drawer.

But really, it was all just sort of a joke until I realized we have a doll-sized flip top blue cell phone.

Worksafe, though probably you wish it wasn't. I know I do. ^_^;

Ritsuka & Soubi +6 )

(actually today I shot an H&H short ep that's all about the General lying around disheveled and drunk, so Janus has really put in the camera hours today. I should pay him overtime! If I paid him at all.)
