There's a beautiful Soom Uyoo on the DOA marketplace now, and I waaaaaant her. Scratch my plans about having a Lumedoll Arine for my Muses protagonist and doing the faceup myself; this Uyoo is perfect.

I've long had a crush on Uyoo. I love her big eyes and her full lips. Her mouth always seem slightly open, as if she's about to speak.

I used to have one with a default Soom faceup that I loved; she was the first incarnation of Jennifer, but I sold her, which I shouldn't have done. I eventually got another to provide the body for Absinthe and the head for Little Anneka, but I never liked that one as much because she had a non-default faceup. This one currently on the MP has sweet, arched eyebrows and a delicately done mouth, very close to the default. WANT WANT WANT WANT.

EDIT: Inquired to see if she was still available. If all goes well, I will soon on the road to HELL, no turning back, since I'm now buying dolls for Me and My Muses.

Yesterday the Burlington Doll Club held its summer meeting at Ivy's house. Amidst pizza, chips and salsa, we heated up her living room with insane giggles and clothing swaps, an excavation of the "free box" and, of course, general adulation of everyone's dolls...particularly Frank.  Frank made his first major public appearance in his final form yesterday. As popular as he was in Ptown, Frank vamped for everyone's cameras, enjoying the feeling of many hands across his body.  See beautiful dolls and silly comments below.

Will someone please explain to me why Jareth, who executed a great belly flop from the table to the floor this weekend, shows no damage whatsoever, while Frank, who has spent all this time standing around with a dirty little smirk on his face, has a chip in his lipstick? I have to reapply that fire-engine red some time this week. >_<

Also, can someone please explain why I bought a 1:3 chair expressly for Jareth and/or Frank to sit in, and Jennifer is the one who uses it all the time to do her sketching and journal writing in?

This is probably the only time you'll ever see all my 1:6 BJDs together, since Jennifer belongs to the 1:3 universe with Jareth and Frank, and Daisy and Geordie belong to the Love Has Fangs universe. They are making cross-dimensional connections for the sake of your edification, though. :D

Last entry, I promised box porn. This entry, I deliver. Naked doll penis below [though that's really just a small part, heh heh, of the goings-on].

1:3 beer

Like I said, I got a 1:3 beer bottle from Barb at the doll meet yesterday. Today it entertained Jareth and Jennifer. Read more... )

The usual band of geeks suspects took over the usual conference room at the Burlington Public Library this afternoon to swap doll parts, stories and photos. Jennifer started off grumpy because she was wearing the aforementioned frilly dress with cherries, but Ivy had a box o' free shit from where she found a much more pleasing outfit, modeled below. Other loot I nabbed: a fuzzy pink sweater, a knitted shawl and a troll with pink hair to confiscate for Jennifer...not to mention the 1:3 bottle of Beck beer, this last from Barb!

Jennifer hung out with Jamie's OrientDoll Tae, Quaid, who is 40 cm to her 27. He's very realistically proportioned, and I can't wait to see his female counterpart! She also posed with Breck's Souldoll Kimmy, Puck, who is shorter and slenderer than she is. I like the 1:6 Souldoll BJD bodies better than Soom's; Souldoll's features are meatier and more realistic.

An informal survey on the way back to the T revealed that I'm not the only one who feels completely wiped out after meets. Steph, Jamie, Sam and Meg said that they all wanted to go to sleep afterward, despite the fact that we always part ways before dinner. Steph put it best when she said, "It's like you've been mainlining fun for 4 hours. Then you go home and can't stand any more fun!" Read more... )

I didn't notice, but apparently Soom came out with a sleepy Uyoo head called Romantic Uyoo. While I titled the post "Sleepy Jennifer," it doesn't really look like Jennifer at all... She is lovely, though, and I want her head, even though I have no use for it. She has an Anneka Elizabeth look to her... I'm E-mailing Soom now and asking if it's possible to get the Romantic head sold separately with faceup. It would be cheap too, $80.00, which is how much I paid for Velvette's head. [Actually, Velvette was one of those super limited edition Mbili Barbies that I bought for $100.00, and I ended up giving away most of the designer costume, tossing the body, taking down her hair and transplanting her onto a poorly painted CG body. She's one of my favorite and most beautiful dolls and absolutely worth what I paid.]

While I'm linking to things, I should note that Orient Doll has an affordable 1:6 toddler BJD at 4.65". At $109.00 excluding s/h, an unpainted So is about half the price of Jennifer! I have plans for a toddler in the future of Love Has Fangs, but I'm not sure if I'm ready to invest that type of money in a tertiary character. He'd have to be a central character for at least a season [or he'd have to have a recurring secondary role like Velvette the hot and expensive!] to justify that expense.

Wrote this last night, but didn't have a chance to put it up. Andrea the fabulous sent me a birthday gift of funky 1:6 clothing for Jennifer. I personally like the juxtaposition of patterns and prints. Jennifer, however, has other opinions. Read more... )

Mara [rdwayneright] hosted a BJD meet at her swank Brockton pad this afternoon. We took over the meeting room at her condo with our dolls [about 11 owners, 2 or 3 dolls a piece and a few SOs = a lot of fun] and our potluck luncheon. Then we sat around for five hours to make pornographic jokes while swapping doll clothes and wigs and posing them in [compromising] situations. After that, we were all exhausted because playing with dolls sucks up your energy, but in that good way. :p Read more... )

It's been so brilliant and beautiful around here recently, with the sun and the forsythias shining yellowly. Tulips are pushing through the earth, purple and white, while yellow daffodils looks like little frilly teacups and saucers on green stems. Meanwhile, I realized that Jareth was still wearing a monochrome ensemble, so I decided to have Jennifer bug him about it. Read more... )

Jennifer ran on ahead of me today and got lost in the Granary Burying Ground. When I found her, she dragged me on her own little tour. Read more... )

At today's Burlington doll club, I brought a sampling of my 1:6 smorgasbord and held a picnic for Jennifer and Rosa's Elfdolls. [Of course, none of the cute picnic ended up in my final selection of photos, since I'm very picky about which ones I post.] The Elfdoll with the larger eyes is Dodo. The one with the red hair is Adel. I don't know what Rosa named them, but I got some size comparison shots of them with Jennifer and with Jareth. I also tried on at least 10 wigs on Jennifer. Which ones do you think flatter her? Read more... )

Ever since I mentioned making a wig for Jennifer out of plastic wrap, yarn and glue, some people have wondered exactly how I did it. Here are step by step instructions to making a fast and functional yarn wig for your doll. No pictures yet, but maybe soon. Please note that the finished product is neither neat nor professional, so feel free to modify the sucker if you want to improve it. Read more... )

Inspired by my cemetery notes to myself, Jareth and Jennifer were talking this evening. Now presenting your USRDA of angst-free entertainment! Read more... )

You'd never know it, but Jareth, Frank [not here right now] and Jennifer act out some of the heaviest dramas when they're in my head [running around in my thoughts, as opposed to doll form]. When they get out into the resin, though, they show their playful sides...like tonight. I really like the first shot for its forced perspective. Read more... )

Jareth and Jennifer have been hanging out ever since Jennifer's arrival, but this is their first photostory together. You get to learn more about Jennifer's personality. Jareth tried to keep her from messing up the nice frilly outfit I put her in, but she went ahead and climbed trees anyway. Sheesh! Shots of unreasonably stubborn and athletic characters follow.

I've never done a photostory before where nothing happens. Well, there's a first time for everything, and Jennifer, here in her PJs with her ubiquitous memorandum book, proves it. It's not really a photostory so much as a photomood, all about those comfy, lazy times when your sweet fatigue overwhelms your big plans. Read more... )

Once upon a time, I fell in love with Boston's Chinatown. Devoted to its yummy, cheap restaurants and fascinating import shops, I decided to learn more about one of the city's most distinctive neighborhoods. I began to search the library and the Web for information on the history of Chinese immigrants in Boston and unearthed a much cooler story than I ever could have hoped. Read more... )

Jennifer has always been a quiet, unobtrusive, meditative, anal-retentive, even repressed character. In contrast to Frank, her polymorphously perverse master, and Jareth, her theatrically melancholy friend, she has always been...well, normal, very down-to-earth and shy. Inexperienced in the ways of intimacy, she does indeed have a sex drive, but its very existence still perturbs her, despite the fact that she's in her early 20s.

I chose Soom Uyoo for my Jennifer doll because I wanted a sculpt that looked at once mature and innocent. Now that I actually have the doll in my hands, though, I realize how sexy she can be. I think Jennifer is realizing this too. As you can see from tonight's series of photos, she looks hot in a low-cut, sheet outfit, proving that someone can be sweet and sexy at the same time.

This evening I finally had the energy to set up Jennifer and take a few pictures. Well, actually, I took 40, but you only get to see the 4 most interesting. Read more... )

EDIT: Elle m'attend chez moi! Tracking says it was signed for by me despite the fact that I was at work downtown when the delivery occurred. I guess my signed note worked this time!

According to UPS tracking, Jennifer is "out for delivery" as of 4:15 AM. However, I do not know if I will get her today. Read more... )

I'm making a deal with Lia on DOA to get my third and final BJD, a Soom Uyoo. She comes with the soft, natural Soom default faceup, blue eyes and a completely blushed body. I've never had a fully blushed doll before; from the pictures, the light blushing gives her an added delicacy. See my Uyoo, pre-Jennifer, below. Read more... )

Sardonix' body went into the DEDF. I thought I wouldn't give up her head, but then decided that, however devilishly charming she is, she is not the doll[s] that I want. I want my Jareth and Frank dolls. Bye, Sardonix. Nice knowin' ya. I doubt that Sardonix will truly disappear. Zephque will probably hang around too. After falling back into the great melting pot of aborted characters, their traits shall surely resurface in future creations.

I still want a Uyoo. She's so innocent and cheerful-looking, which would make her a good representation of Jennifer.

I would have a modded SA Haund for Jareth, like I already do [only he's not in my possessive little mitts yet]. Frank would be a modded regular Haund head on an Afghan body with severe breast augmentation. And Jennifer would be a Uyoo. Then I could have the whole Stichomythy in manipulable format! *...pauses to wander among thoughts...* Wow, I hope the D.E.D.F. (Disgustingly Expensive Doll Fund) receives an infusion this Xmas.
