However, I've not been lazy on other fronts, so thought I'd share a few photos on here. I spent last weekend sewing an outfit for a friend of mine, she wanted one like my last auction one, but of course I like to work in different fabrics and colours. I'd hate for someone to feel they'd bid on an outfit on ebay only to find that someone else has the exact same outfit as theirs. I also find it incredibly boring to use the same fabric and make the exact same outfit all the time. That is why, although I don't advertise things as being OOAK (one of a kind), they invariably are. So here are a few photos of my latest outfit:
I have also been busy on the Blythe front too and have customised my blue haired girl that I got on ebay. I was under the impression that she was a 'factory' girl, and although they are not 'official' releases by Takara, I decided to go for her because I really wanted a fantasy hair girl.....but having posted her photo on Flickr, I hear (and now see for myself) that she is actually a 'fake' Blythe. I am not upset about it, as I had planned for her to be customised anyway. So she is done for now. However, I feel that she is a little over blushed so I'm going to have to redo her makeup, which is a shame because this make up already took me three attempts! Having said that, I do need to take her head off again anyway, as I noticed after I'd finished that one of her legs doesn't bend so I will need to change her body over for a better one. I might get her a Licca body or perhaps put her on one of the spare Pure Neemo ones that I have hanging around here headless!
I also spent some time dying my Border Spirit's yellow blond hair and she is now a raspberry haired girl. I didn't intend for the colour to be so deep, I really wanted a pale baby pink but I guess that wasn't to be......well I did say that I wanted a fantasy haired girl...I now have two! I like her, especially since adding some extra blush. I now have 7 Blythe girls living here, 6 are customised by me and one, Bohemian Peace, is waiting patiently to be done. I might make a start on her this week. I also have an FBL faceplate and all her body parts, the faceplate is at Olga's house (Vainilladolly) waiting for her to customise her for me. I hope that she'll be done soon, because I've wanted a Vainilladolly for 2 years now, since I first saw Olga's girls on my first visit to her house.
In the meantime, I have yet another outfit started for ebay, so hopefully I'll also get the rest of that done so that I can post that on there for sale. I guess at the moment, with the terrible storm Sandy making it's way across the US, it is probably not a good time to put it up for sale anyway, bearing in mind that most of my customers are in the US. I will use the time to think of what to make!
Apart from that, nothing much else happening here. It is a lot cooler at the moment, and it has been raining on and off today.....I'm so spoilt with good weather that when it rains I really hate it....even though I know we need it for the farmers!
On that note, time to make the lunch, so that's it for now......just a couple of odd photos to share. The blue haired girl is called Budgie and the pinky one is now known as Candie...as in Candy Floss!!!!
