Another Dreary Winter Day

 Another dreary winter's day. It feels like forever since we've seen the sun here. No rain or snow, just overcast and gray and blah. I'd almost rather have it snow, since I don't have to go anywhere anyway. Days like this just seem to suck the life out my desire to get anything done. So, since it had been a while since I had Maeve out, I put her in the new sweater that arrived and got a few new pictures.

At least I feel like I'm getting a tad more proficient at using the manual settings on my camera so that I'm doing a wee bit better in low light situations. I found this sweater on Etsy described as "oversize" for the minifee's and I was hoping it would work well for my FID girls. I figured if it didn't I have minifee's too, so they could inherit it. I'm pleased with how it works for Maeve though, so the FID's may get to keep it.

I struggle if I want to keep these eyes in Maeve as they are definitely a bit "otherwordly", but I think I am going to use her in with the wolven group, and for a wolven they work quite nicely in my opinion. I may try and readjust them a bit. Eyes are SO hard to adjust in this size though.

Welcome 2021

 Welcome 2021, may you be much kinder on us than your predecessor 2020 was. Although I do have to say I was lucky not to face some of the challenges that others faced. My husband and I are both blessed with jobs that are essential and can be done from home, a true blessing in these times. On the dolly front, Ren (RD Branden) was certainly a welcome addition to the dolly family. Received as a second head in Raccoon Doll's summer sale, he promptly took over Drake, my Damien's body, and has quickly become one of my favorite faces. As with most of my favorite guys, I tend to pair them up. Reaghan was being used in the Glade world, but I wanted to see how she looked with Ren, and they were definitely a pair that "clicked" for me, so I will certainly be doing more with them as a couple, and re-thinking her Glade story.

Anyway, some just because pics of them, just because I really like these 2 together.

Romance in Black and White

 I actually took this series of photos of Hauk and Sabia back in 2017. As I was looking through old photo albums I decided to re-edit them in black and white to bring a bit of new life to them, as it was one of my favorite photo shoots I've done of these two.

One of my first couples in the FID/RD size, they are still a favorite.........

Sometimes dolls just really seem to "click" together, as is the case with these 2, at least in my eyes.
I think this is one of the most romantic shoots I've done with the smaller dolls as well, and the black and white edits really add to the "mood." I need to work on adding a little more romance into my dollies lives in 2021.

Ren, Just Because

 Just because Ren was standing around looking so handsome, I just had to photograph him a little bit more.

Ren's a member of the Wolven race, and he's the alpha of his pack.

Really love this guy...........he speaks to me loudly.........

Trying to figure out where "Jude" fits into the pack.........I know Ren has taken him under his wing, and I know he comes from a bit of a traumatic background. Hoping that if I spend some more time photographing him with members of his "pack" as well as by himself that he will speak to me a bit more.

Merry Christmas Eve

 I got a box from Ebay with a couple new Monique wigs, so decided to play and try one of them on Nieves. I hate that Monique is going out of business. They have been my go to for dolly wigs for almost as long as I have been a BJD owner. They will be greatly missed. Nieves is wearing one of the newer styles, Zsa Zsa here in bleach blonde.

I wanted something for her that wasn't pure white for her modern day persona. Her dress is from Katz MeowDesigns on Etsy.

Merry Christmas from my resin crew to yours, to all who celebrate!!

Hey Jude

 After seeing some owner pics of the 51cm Jude full doll by SartoriaJ, I'm very anxious for the one I ordered to get home, but since it will be after the first of the year, I thought I'd get my "LeStat" Jude out, and put him back in contemporary clothing for some play time. He really is so "pretty".

And luckily his head is shaped VERY close to Leonard's as my Leonard's hard cap wig from Chewin fits him perfectly, as if made for him.

I wish Chewin had more of the Raccoon Doll guys so I could get both Micha (Ken) and Ren (Branden) Chewin wigs as well. I really love them on the guys. His outfit below is from SartoriaJ as well.

Immortals at Home

 Micha and Vanya are immortal mates......he is vampire, she is Elven.  They have lived several centuries, so since he was in contemporary clothing I decided to bring her in the contemporary world as well. I wanted to play with different wigs on her too, as she disguises her Elven ears in the contemporary world, so wanted a wig that would hide them.

The new RD woman body is a bit slimmer than the original one, and the feet are a little bigger as well. The body poses well so far, and I love the updated hands.

And a shot of both of their profiles
