Don’t worry, Gretel

“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.

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.

3. Volks Eyelashes for SD (about 600+yen): this one came in one length for you to cut out the amount you need; 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?

Rejected. Flatly.

This is Mikoto’s new image.  He’s the second of the triplets.  I originally intended him to be someone who is so into study and research that he is awkward with people.

He gave me a flat refusal saying he will not be a nondescript.  He wants a life full of colours.

Then he went on to claim this new wig, discard the prim and proper attire and go for casual rugged style.  In fact, he demanded a loose fit and very distressed jeans.  He also told me he will be a successful architect.  Meantime, he is determined to enjoy himself while doing his undergrad studies.

On Sunday, he got a tattoo on his arm.  This morning, he informed me he plans to get another on his forearm… (0_0″)

Is it because he feels overlooked, given that the older is the heir apparent and the younger is sickly and needs constant attention?

One thing I like about resin ball jointed doll is they are very versatile.  Change the wig or the eyes or the face-up or everything, you get a doll with very different look.  As if you have a new doll.  For Shun in the photo above, I just changed his eyes and wig and he sports a different look.
