It’s been a while since she arrived and she’s slowly coming together. ( ´ ▽ ` )ﾉ I didn’t feel very inspired to do much with her ’cause she didn’t have her own wig for a while — not to mention thanks to Easter I was over a week away from home anyway, so I couldn’t do anything with my dolls — and I’m not terribly happy with her face up… but the weather isn’t being very cooperative, either it’s too windy or too humid so I haven’t been able to re-do it. Well, perhaps in May we’ll get some warmer sunny days and less wind… I hope.
Well, anyway, here’s a teaser photo that I took of her earlier. She was borrowing Ume’s temporary wig:
I had to re-string her pretty soon after she’d arrived, as the default string that she came with were horribly loose. I had some nice string with a good thickness & tension, but unfortunately I cut the piece too short for her legs, and I didn’t have any more of it… so I had to settle with a not-as-nice string. (ーー;) She was still a bit floppy so that I didn’t dare to leave her standing by herself, but I was confident that sueding her with pliver would fix that.
Last Friday I got her own wig, which made me more excited about her, so today I then got around sueding her. And now she stands like a rock, yay! Pliver sueding is awesome~ I just hate cutting & glueing the pieces, haha… but in the end it’s always worth it. ♥ I should re-suede all my minis, too… gahh. (´Д` ) Maybe next weekend. I’ve had enough of cutting pieces for this weekend, lol! (;´∀｀) But yeah, now I can make full use of her joints, since she’s more stable~ ♥
I also made her stockings, ’cause I’d brought a bunch of my old pantyhoses from my parents’… they’ve gotten either too small or torn, so I’m not able to use them myself anymore… but they have some really nice prints, so it would’ve been a waste to throw them away. So, I decided to use them for making socks for my dolls. ( ^ω^）It’s impossible to find this type of fabric at the fabric store, anyway… and I think it’s also economical to re-use old stuff. But no worries, I won’t use my old clothes for sales clothing! Just for my own dolls. All sales clothing & commissions are made from brand new fabrics, I assure you.（⌒▽⌒）
But yeah, here are a couple more photos with her own wig:
Now she just needs a better face up, the perfect eyes and clothes~ And shoes, because she doesn’t have nearly enough yet, lol!（ ´∀｀）I also need to buy her another pair of black pumps, these are too wide and somehow small… they keep falling off her feet. (; ´Д`) Such a strange size, the other shoes that I’ve bought for her all fit perfectly. ヽ（・＿・；)ノ I also remembered this black shirt dress that I’d made for the SID Aurora that I had for like… two weeks in 2013? Lol, me and Iple dolls don’t get along. But anyway, it’s a decent fit, although I need to take it in a bit at the bust and waist. The interesting thing is that I have to keep it off shoulder on Yun, ’cause otherwise the sleeves are too short. Iple dolls have short arms. (。ヘ°)
Slowly but surely, my model girl is starting to look like herself~ ヽ(*⌒∇⌒*)ﾉ
