If you’re in the US, you probably have a nice long weekend this weekend!  What better time to get on that outfit you’ve been planning to do, and why not enter it into my sewing contest?  You can win the chance to design the next pattern for any doll you want, and free patterns!

Full details HERE

Just a reminder!  19 days to sew left, which includes 3 weekends!

Ack, time is flying, I have to get my outfit done!  Also, signal boosting for anyone who doesn’t know about this cool contest yet :D

I wish we could submit a design using our own patterns, that would make more sense to me if we are designing a new pattern. I only have a boy set of patterns from them so I don’t think I can make anything really, though I would love to submit something of my own design.

The grand prize isn’t designing the next pattern as much as picking the design for the next pattern, if that makes sense?  People who can make their own patterns don’t need me to design them for them :)

Outfits entered into the contest have to be roughly 50% based off of pattern pieces I’ve released.  This is  to level the playing field for everyone so that someone can’t swoop in and cheat with a pre-made outfit from an obscure source or enter a professionally commissioned OOAK outfit that  I’d never be able to track down.

If you want to make a completely original shirt and pair it with a pair of pants from the boy pattern that you modified to have chains and buckles and straps and whatever?  That’s still 50%.  For people who have absolutely no pattern modifying skills?  Combine top from pattern A, bottom from pattern B, corset or jacket or whatever from pattern C and come up with an outfit that doesn’t look remotely like any of the outfits in the pattern pack.

I got the second brown skintone to my liking!  I bought a large lot of nude dolls and I intend to spend a day this weekend dyeing the joints and painting the bodies.  I do have more bodies than I have need for with my own custom plans, so please contact me if you would like a medium or dark brown blank for a custom (either for yourself or to send to a customizer!)
I will only be doing this ONCE because frankly it’s a pain in the butt and very labor intensive.  Dolls will be $55 ea plus shipping. This includes:-Price of nude doll-Stripping all factory paint from the head-Cutting off the hair-Sanding the body lightly and cleansing with 98% pure alcohol to remove factory oils for better adhesion of paint-Over a dozen paint coats at various angles of the body and head to get all angles covered with a light, even coat-Optional coat of MSC Matte (I only recommend this if you are also using MSC matte as mixing sealants can cause problems).Contact me if you’re interested! Deadline is Friday night, 9/12.  I have several regular sized and 2 short dolls available.

Oh I wish I could afford one right now, but I really need to do the customs I already have in mind before I get a blank for another one!

If I have any extras I will stick them in my Etsy shop afterward.  Would you need a medium brown or a dark brown?

Fun caption time!  When I was doing screencaptures, I thought this one looked entertaining out of context.  So:
Ashlynn finds out that Hunter drinks
or
Ashlynn finds out Hunter is into goblin boys.
or…?

Fineas Jawsson by Ravie

Fineas Jawsson
aka Fineas, Son of Jaws

Fineas is a Garboyle custom by me. His scalp was placed the he was rooted in Silver Bullet and Raven Black Saran. Afterwards he was flocked in gray/white/black and given a two-toned detail.

His face was painted to have black eyes and a slightly wider mouth.

His fin was made by Requiem and attaches via a harness he can wear under his clothes.

For pricing info, ask me, FM me via flickr (~Ravie) or at the MHArena

Love his hair, it came out awesome <3

Backgrounders Reference #4 Sugar Buns

She has pastel hair and a hoodie dress with sneakers.  While fairly unique in her casual sporty outfit, she has a generic print on her clothes (hearts) and most of her outfit pieces are recycled.  Unfortunately I think this girl has a low chance of being turned into a named character. 

Anonymous said: I know someone else has probably asked this, but where can I find an extremely cheap BJD to repair? Even if it's in pretty bad condition, I really want a BJD. I can't afford to buy a new one (not even if it was a recast!) but because of my hobbies in the past I have the stuff to repair one. I know you'll probably tell me to save for a new one but it isn't an option for me right now. Also, I'm sorry for the anon but I'm nervous.

fyeahbjdmods:

Don’t worry about being nervous, that’s exactly what anon is for. 8) Aside from DOA, your best bet for this is probably eBay. There are a bunch of secondhand BJDs on there, many times from unpopular companies or of questionable origin/condition.

There is also the Castaways doll forum, whose secondhand market is very cheap and has all types of BJDs, not just ones that adhere to the strict classification guidelines of DOA. (However they have a post quota you must meet to access it— though if memory serves it’s considerably less than DOA.)

Has Anon looked into non-resin BJDs?  If you’re just looking for *A* bjd,  there are more and more non resin ones coming out that look pretty darn good, like Hujoo.  DOA doesn’t allow discussion for these kinds of dolls, but they are out there (I have one—it isn’t as heavy as my resin BJD, but otherwise it’s just as pose-able and customizable)  You can get a kid sized one similar to a Lati Yellow or PukiFee for literally $30 shipped international.  Search for “Hujoo Baby Mini” on Ebay.
