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?
I made this suit based on one of Ciel’s. Yes, that Ciel in the Black Butler. I think Kaoru will look good in that style.
The fit looks good except for the collar. Somehow, it doesn’t seem to sit nicely on the shoulders. Hmmm… ｢(ﾟﾍﾟ)
The outfit is done. The top hat is done. Now I just need to make a waist band and if possible, I would like to make a walking stick for him so that he can walk around like a young and stylist Victorian gentleman.
Meantime, I need to figure out how to make the walking stick…（‐”‐；）
Do you have occasions when two voices start to talk to you? One urging for the good in you, the other encouraging you to release the nasty you?
In the cartoon/anime, they will usually show the cute little angel and devil talking to the person. Fighting for the person’s full attention.
So, who will get Hane’s attention? The pure white Tsune or the devilish black Shun?
Finally. This is the 3rd set of photos I have done. Somehow I wasn’t quite happy with the previous two. For the 1st set, I wasn’t happy with the props so I redid them. For the 2nd, I wasn’t quite happy with Mikado wearing his hair long. Thankfully, Mikado has been cooperative. Now I’m happy with the results and the two-tones jacket I mentioned here turned out good too. A pat for myself for a job well done. (^_ ^)ノ(￣▽￣)
Project 1: Organising my stuff
I have finally come to a point when I couldn’t see what fabrics and laces etc I have for my sewing project. So I made the painful decision to reorganise my stuff knowing it will take me a lot of time and efforts. I searched the internet for ideas, went out to buy the necessary boards and clear boxes and collected rolls for reuse etc. Today, I’m happy to declare my cupboard is now neat and clear. Hopefully, this will last. (^_^)
Good thing I have decided to reorganise my stuff. Didn’t realise I have so much sewing materials and some are duplicates too. (- __- ;;)
Project 2: New coat for my SD17 sized boys
I quite like the jackets of Ciel in the Black Butler manga. So I thought maybe I can try to make one for the boys. Because I thought of making it for my Mikado and Tetsu, I modified it a bit, replacing the ribbons with belt etc. Something like this?
Pardon my feeble attempt to sketch a manga boy… (*＾〜＾*)
Still working on it. Struggled a bit with the pockets….and I need to buy the buttons and a belt buckle….
= [hóng yè] red leaves
We have no season here and so the leaves won’t turn red or yellow to herald the coming cold days. Thus, when we had some fierce thunderstorms in the middle of the night for the last few days, I thought we are finally going into the rainy season.
But alas, it doesn’t seem so. The days are still hot and humid and the cicadas are still happily singing their summer tunes. When will the cooler days come? ε-(´・｀)
