Black tails

Modified the tailed shirt featured in the Dollybird magazine into a black tails shirt for Ziki.  Went slightly wild, replacing the front label with black lace.  But am quite happy with the results.  Think it suits him as a fashion designer. (^_^)

…with boredom.

Being famous as a fashion designer, Ziki often receives invitations to functions and events.  Even though, he keeps his attendance to the minimal and he has no problems interacting and charming the people he comes into contact with, he would much prefer to stay at home doing what he likes or spend time with people he likes.

A successful prototype

In many ways, this loose shirt is an experiment.  This soft and thin white cloth is called “Bahama Voile”.  It wrinkles but I quite like the effect.  Then I varied the box shirt pattern.  And finally, because some of the blue sewing markings wouldn’t wash off, I dyed the shirt with black tea.  The dye sort of covers the blue markings but it makes the shirt looks old and worn.  Perhaps my dyeing wasn’t done correctly.  That’s another try for another day.  

For now, I know I quite like the cloth and this pattern.  Just have to remember no blue markings.

“We’ll be out of here soon.” Hansel reached out and tried to hug his sister.

“Hansel and Gretel” came to mind after I have finished a similar vest and white shirt for Kaoru.  Thus I decided to have some fun with the two of them.  (*^0^*)

Finished a new set of outfit for Tsune featuring tatting laces. Quite like the overall effect except the bonnet. Will have to make some adjustments so that it will sit securely on her head.  Might want to redo the white blouse too. The current fabric is too stiff for the design.  I feel.

Trying something new

Started learning tatting laces using shuttles.  Thanks to generous people who bothered to put up tutorial videos on the internet. (^_^)

See the necklace Ziki is wearing?  My first successful attempt.  Frustrating at times especially when I made mistakes at the later portion of the work and don’t know how to undo.  But, there’s a sense of achievement when I see the completed work.  Already now itching to try another pattern…

Another new thing.  Just started an Instagram account: mydreamparticle. For new experience. For fun.  Do drop by some times.  Do let me know yours too, if you have one.  (^_^)

Ride out the storm

Recently a lot of things happened in the workplace so much so that I wanted to give up.  But someone whom I respected advised me to use this opportunity to learn to be patient, to be strong, to ride out the storm.  (-__-;)

This is Ziki.  He is a famous fashion designer.  He is well-loved and envied by many: for his achievement, his beautiful looks and his charms.  He too has learned to ride out many storms before he reaches his current position.  Even now, he does not allow himself to become complacent.

Flutter your eyelashes

Do you know there are many different types of eyelashes and at a wide range of prices for both human and BJD?  I was amazed by the varieties and prices when I was looking around for my dollies.

In this post, I would like to share on those I have bought for my dollies.  I tried to capture their eyelashes in these photos.  Hope it’s clear enough.

1. Eyelashes for human (S$2) – need to cut suitable length for the eyes; have to trim the length of the lashes; took some effort to put them on her.

2. Volks Eyelashes for SD (300+yen), more natural looking – no trimming required; easy to put on him.

These days, I keep hearing “Chill, chill…” when problems pop up.   I wonder if it helps to solve problems… (-_-?)

On the side, this girl took a fall and suffered an almost unnoticeable chip off her face up on her nose…hmmm….do I need more chill?
