I'm slowly learning how to use my DSLR. Here are some pictures from my second round. I reduced my first round too greatly and had to trash them. From top to bottom, Ellery's desk, Ellery's desk, Ellery's desk, and Jareth.Read more... )

My mini GI Joe came today, along with his mini adventure-mobile and his mini sarcophagus. Jareth and Jennifer show off the playthings.

I picked up a Hallmark ornament of Silken Flame Barbie and her travel case to be a doll for Ellery to play with. Today I got the mini doll and the mini case in the mail and checked them out against Jareth and Frank...just the right size to be a doll's doll! The doll can be put in and taken out of the left side of the carrier, and the bottom drawer opens. The clothes on the right, however, are molded into the sculpture of the carrier.

To find similar items on Ebay, search for "barbie traveling case ornament" or similar. Barbie ornaments of dolls without traveling cases are not in correct scale.

So here are old lighting results with parchment paper over the lamps:Read more... )

EDIT: Uh oh, the light looks too brown. I'll have to substitute wax paper for the parchment paper.

I put some parchment paper over my lamps this evening to diffuse the harsh full-spectrum light. Here is a picture of the lamps.Read more... )

I also brought back from my parents' house a selection of clothes and accessories for Me and My Muses.Read more... )

I brought back from my parents' house selected pieces of furniture from my amassment to build sets. Most of this stuff is for Ellery. Jareth and Jennifer host the pictures.

I got my new full-spectrum lamp today! Here's my desk with the new setup. Please ignore the piles of 1:3 clothing I have to either get rid of [on left] or dress Janvier Jett in [on right]. I'm preliminarily pleased with the brightness and clarity of the results.Read more... )

I feel somewhat guilty about having 17 extra 1:6 dolls hanging around. By “extra,” I mean that they have no point. I keep them because I like them, not because they play any part in my major dolly project, LHF.

A family photo occasions Jennifer's new body, a DML Eve 1.5. The DML 1.5 body, much more robust and bigger than the original Momoko body, makes Jennifer's head look slightly smaller, but I think this adds to the impression of her being a mature woman with kind of a baby face.

L to R: Jareth, Jennifer, Frank. Read more... )

Here are 1:6 versions of three-quarters of the characters in my head (left to right): Jareth, Jennifer and Frank. Doll of me not included because it doesn't have a head. Interestingly enough, the dolls don't really look like the characters, but they accurately capture their moods: Jareth serious and shy, Jennifer energetic and innocent, Frank playful and sex-obsessed.

Jennifer, who is a Momoko, came in today, so her arrival occasioned these portraits.Read more... )

If you know me, you know my enduring interest in capturing Jareth's likeness in doll form. I think I've done satisfactorily in the 1:3 department, but the 1:6 version has always eluded me. I'm getting closer to a great 1:6 interpretation of Jareth. He's a repainted head from a Toy Biz Galadriel doll on an Obitsu slim male body, modified to accept Cy Girl bootfeet. He's wearing a blouse from a Dreams & Legends Miss Fear doll and pants from a Blue Box Cy Girl Jet, along with a pendant that I made. He may or may not be done. Not sure... Read more... )
