merci la vie! blythe
before I begin.... tumblr_ll7xq8CAsh1qi6qow540.gif

new custom girl I picked up from a new artist.. !! 
I'll share pictures soon, she's my first middie blythe ^o^ 
her name is waffle (smiley waffle is her base). laco.giflaco.giflaco.giflaco.gif



it's been awhile YA but I've been itching to log some progress on my new blythe project LOL

so I am technically "skipping a number"! my second blythe project was a bit too ambitious for my skill level KDFSKJSFD.. I think I needed a bit more practice and studying on facial depth before trying my first open mouth doll! tumblr_2b7374f0a0c58df81ef5f97c3deee5fa_dbf816c6_75.gif oopz

but I was humbled at least AHAHA

I think her face photographed cutely, but I couldn't unsee how odd her nose and mouth looked when REALLY observing.. tumblr_lkl654nE1A1qfamg6.gif

I'd like recycle her face plate in the future when I have more practice xP not.. anytime soon-- gif5.gif *is dramatic*

anyway HERE is my new child's inspiration pinterest board! I am specifically extremely inspired by the cute pouty faces of romidoll, one of my favorite customizers. (I hope to own a baby from her someday)........ mini012.gifmini012.gifmini012.gifmini012.gif

not quite there yet, but so far so good >_> tumblr_m3xtm3BvH51rodiav540.gif


she's meant to be an alternative occultist witch apprentice who loves stones and gems (kinda inspired by the rubrubbing in hamham heartbreak LOL).. I am deeply inspired by an old eroge character named lilith! as well as various 2000s illustrations (eroge and oc).

how awesome is this tattoo.. lilith is to the left btw- to the right is nekokinryouku tumblr_9f64623492c6caaeb4e6bf821c2ce2b1_6a1355b1_75.giftumblr_9f64623492c6caaeb4e6bf821c2ce2b1_6a1355b1_75.gif

I think this is the most proficient job I've done so far... (ノ∇≦*) mini051.gifmini051.gif I think she still has a way's to go but I've improved when it comes to determining the relationship between the cheeks/philtrum/chin..

in my first two doll attempts; my soft pastel shading was not very great because of how flat their faces were. I've only been doing test color washes on maliceson, and immediately see how much nicer it looks!!

I thank the creators of popcorn and mao, because I am now able to study physical references.. tumblr_ll7xq8CAsh1qi6qow540.gif it will only get better from here W00T

maliceson's original form.. she is wearing this special outfitI love this creators fantasy-esque work tumblr_b2ca2c7e530ef6fa0562c9241ba755fd_134095e1_75.gif

(not my pic).. I considered buying the white one initially, but I wanted a more classic witch motif!! black and purple is also a good color scheme LOL

lastly, a song that describes her "feeling".. I have two this time! initially I thought shoegaze/alt rock, but it feels too predictable with her casual outfit.. I feel like an industrial type of electronic is more fitting tumblr_lkl65c58Ps1qfamg6540.gif




this has nothing to do w/ my blythe but I doodled my underworld babies randomly and I don't know wut other context I'd share it in so.. Yah tumblr_inline_p6m7snZdrp1rhwzwl_540.gif



uh ya as u can see I have been doing the worst job upkeeping my blog LOOOOOL tumblr_lkl64v9iji1qfamg6.png

WOO I turned 27 this past week mini051.gif I actually hate attention drawn to me on my birthday in any capacity, so I'm happy when it passes LMAO but nonetheless I'm grateful for those closest to me helping make it a special one >_<

wish I could say I have intricate thoughts on getting older.. nop LOLZ I'll just keep riding the same wave I have since 21 and hope more wisdom comes my way(PLZ my brain needs it)

birthday issey tumblr_lkl62rQ1K21qfamg6540.gifminidog.gif I found a mushroom while walking and couldn't help but compare the "pleats" with my own.. o_O

crystal's gift made me cry so hard because I'm not worthy of something this amazing.. TT.TT blythe custom of baby mao .. gif5.gifgif5.gifgif5.gifgif5.gifgif5.gifgif5.gif

the fact that crystal took time to draw when she never draws made my heart explode (AND ITS SO GOOD)

in some extremely random but very related blythedoll news.. I FINISHED Petit Clione, my first project!! tumblr_inline_p7i55rnpzp1rhwzwl_75sq (2)tumblr_inline_p7i55rsv0A1rhwzwl_75sq (1)tumblr_inline_mn49l2CQbR1qz4rgp540.giftumblr_inline_mn49krbN7b1qz4rgp540.giftumblr_inline_mn49l2CQbR1qz4rgp540.giftumblr_inline_p7i55rsv0A1rhwzwl_75sq (1) first baby!


SOOOooOOO I've learned a few things from my first customization.. tumblr_ll7xq8CAsh1qi6qow540.gif

1.  do not want to reroot a scalp again if I don't have to LMAOOO it's so time consuming despite being easy.. I will be buying wigs after I use the rest of my alpaca wool
2. need to take my time even more than I thought I was............. PATIENCE
3. should study more 3D art and sculptures (aka ask my s/o for good reference)
4. how da heck do doll customizers push out even one a month let alone 3 KSFDKJSDFK????? YR CRAY (and so cool wtf..)
5. I love my baby so much and am super pleased for my first try ever tumblr_b2ca2c7e530ef6fa0562c9241ba755fd_134095e1_75.giftumblr_b2ca2c7e530ef6fa0562c9241ba755fd_134095e1_75.giftumblr_b2ca2c7e530ef6fa0562c9241ba755fd_134095e1_75.giftumblr_b2ca2c7e530ef6fa0562c9241ba755fd_134095e1_75.gif

my grandma named her "Sandy"! it's actually after another relative which is sweet..

I've been trying to think, what kind of girl do I want to work on next??? I don't think I have much time to plot lately, but I will brainstorm as soon as I can.. in the meantime, I will study the amazing work of mao's blythe doll (from an actual professional) mini051.gifmini051.gif

my workspace will slowly become even MORE infested wit kits AND dolls.. tumblr_lkl64v9iji1qfamg6.png as intended from the start

sooo my customizing journey had begun.. I sketched out my first original girl! mini-166.gifmini-166.gif


she is a cute and innocent sea butterfly (Clione limacina) mermaid who likes bright colors of the sea!! what better way to start thematically ^Q^

my pinterest board for her!!

360cb021e32b1d2a2c5304b45ef7cd38.jpg 9282ac204e739d6e56cabfa2eacd3a02.jpg
my inspirations for her were two babies I wanted to buy but missed out on >.< the lefthand is by cotton_tail_angel and the righthand is by romidoll! they are two inspiring creators I NEED to adopt from eventually.. mini-166.gifmini-166.gif

I am very carefully planning out her outfits since I obviously will indefinitely be keeping her! I am commissioning a very talented seamstress olga to create a fitting dress in the shape of this silhouette:

I love commissioning artists and now it's going to extend to doll clothe artists Kfdskjdsf.. I am happy since I get to support someone tumblr_lm6pmqVYjq1qfoi4t540.giftumblr_lm6pmqVYjq1qfoi4t540.gif


I wish I can get my hands on the neo blythe "mermaid tasha"'s pastel mermaid tail and top, but I might try to see if I can just commission somebody for it! it also could be more straightforward for me to hand-sew compared to regular clothing..? but we'll see HMMM

so ya now to talk about my progress so far, firstly with carving

compare.jpg bebesfirstfaceteehee.jpg
it's kinda crazy how well my first time carving + faceup went KFSDKJSDF.. not that it's anywhere near to the perfection of existing customs LOLOL but still  _(:□ 」∠)_

anyway, onto her face-up results..

here are the mostly final results of my face-up ^_^ I want to gloss her lips but some of the lip detail gets lost when I try.. gotta try to find a way around that mini087 (1)

while her lip is a smidge uneven, it's kinda charming..? and I think the profile-view carving and makeup turned out sooo precious.. I think button noses are really cute on customs >.< so I'm aiming for that too!

she isn't perfect by any means, but I'm already really attached to her mini112.gifmini112.gifmini112.gif

within the next couple weeks when my locks arrive, I will be working on rerooting her hair and eyechip replacement mini-166.gif the only bad thing about getting into blythes is how long high-quality materials take to ship LOL but it'll be worth it! :-D 

here's a song that's also been influencing her "feeling" a little 16.gif16.gif you light the fire of my, gentle, gentle loooovee tumblr_lkl64v9iji1qfamg6.pngtumblr_lkl65c58Ps1qfamg6540.gif
