Alright. Yes, I finally got my adult!Cin! Only took 6 years and another 9 months of waiting. =__= That is 6 years from when I realized that bronze York would work for the character. 3 years after my realization I came close to getting him, but Soom absolutely refused to add bronze as a skin color option and tawny just doesn’t do it for me. Would’ve been nice because they had the unassembled kit for sale that December and it would’ve made the purchase cheaper. Then finally, last December they offered York again and this time there was a bronze, so I had to jump on it in order to not have to wait another 3 years for a new release. I bought him with a 4month layaway and he was finished in April, but thanks to the current situation, Korean post will not send EMS packages to Finland. I waited until this month to pay the extra fee for EMS premium to have them ship him to me. And here he is, after massive customs taxes I finally have him. And he is huuge. :D
I got to working on him right away and he’s pretty much done, but I just don’t have eyes for him (also his shoes are still stuck in Korea). Thus I also don’t really have good photos of him finished. But I did take some shots of him when he arrived and did a small review of the body. I have pliver sueded him (so that’s what’s in his joints) but other than that, the photos are of him as he came to me.

Took Kilbas out into the forest yesterday. He’s still missing the companion I planned for him years ago, but I can never afford to order it so here we are… I went across a stream that in the spring is pretty much impassable cause there’s so much water, but now it was pretty dry. So yeah, there I was getting stuck in every branch and trying to get some photos taken. I never thought I’d wish I was even smaller than I am, but it was really hard to move out there. xD

I took these some weeks ago but forgot to post them. Not very happy with them either because the forest was kind of ugly, but since I went through the trouble…

I’m not very happy with these photos, but they’re the only ones I have with autumn colours and I made the effort to actually go out for photos of Seere in this dress, so… And big thanks to Turre for the ride and company. (Also mizya and Petra who joined us)

Okay, finally we have the set I took the contest photo from. I got this idea almost immediately when I heard the theme was nude dolls. And I’m definitely a winner here because I had too much fun. I almost immediately wanted to go back there, despite not having a different doll to take… But next year I should have the perfect one =w= and I really look forward to (taking) those photos.
This is a bit of a story but no narration or dialogue, so you can interpret it however you want. xD

Ahem, I knew there was a “snowstorm” coming today, so I was ready for some winter photos. Unfortunately the snow was kind of disappointing: instead of large snowflakes we got these really fast small ones in hordes. Luckily they did show up in photos, but half of them disappeared from the resized ones. < (｀^´)>
I also had some setbacks: right as I was going outside with dolls in both hands and props + accessories in my arms, I managed to drop Seere’s Cuprit crown and it snapped in half. I had to superglue it back on with all my winter gear on and I got all drenched in sweat even before I was outside. And out in the forest my reflector decided to resign. Sigh. Had to fix that when I went back inside but it was no use after the first half of the photos. It was also snowing so much that everything kept getting covered and wet.
Then, the shoot itself took a strange turn, as you can see below. Tanith, look what you’re making Llyr do now that you’re no longer here. (｡•́︿•̀｡)

“Kilbas was on his way to his home cave from having spent several months on official business in a different dimension, and decided that this was as good a place as any to rest, before continuing onwards. He was traveling light: just his weapons, better clothes, waterskin and a bear hide for warmth. It was all he needed to survive in this harsh winter wilderness.”
I couldn’t resist. It’s been a while since I put any effort into photography, but I got this fur piece from mizya yesterday and it’s been snowing non-stop since last night, so the weather was great for photos, too. And I’ve had this photo idea for a while now. If I had winter gear for some of my other dolls, I would’ve made it into a photostory. But nope, not this time. Maybe some day I’ll find good fantasy appropriate winter fabrics that inspire me to sew for… well almost everyone needs winter gear.

Reposting entries I lost during the minor hacking indicent on my domain.
I made Seere a red silk variation of the “Dany dress”.

I’ve been in a bit of a doll coma this summer. I’ve been working on commissions and generally haven’t had time or energy for my own dolls. But I’m trying to activate myself a bit before summer is over. Mostly because I have some ideas and a few locations I want to shoot at.
First up is Siren photos from yesterday. I’m going to add to this shoot later -or make a set of its own if the light is completely different, because I left out things I wanted to do. The sun turned away too soon. :( Sorry for the repetition

I’m (really slowly) working on a new outfit for Iria. I never even had a proper shoot in her original one, but oh well. I’ve had the design and some of the patterns done for months already and I even made one piece of it some time ago, but I have a hard time deciding which fabrics to use for the rest of it. That and I keep getting distracted: like yesterday, I was going to start cutting the fabrics. I took them all out and everything. And then I found nice leggins fabrics from by pile and instead, cut like 15 pairs of leggins (SD16/DDdy, SD & MSD size). Lol. =__=;; The sales coats are still in the works too. Oh, and last night I dug out an old silk dress I made 4 years ago, pretty much cut off the back and started making a new back hem to make it nicer and useable for Prisca.
And let’s not even speak of the SG corset I started last year, the shirts I cut for Null at the same time and another SD silk dress I cut a year ago. I have too much unfinished stuff. Though, right now I really wanna do something nice for my own dolls. ♥
Anyway, finally managed to finish this story.
The summer was coming to an end. The trees were dropping their leaves in the wind and amidst them, a lonely figure limped in the forest.
At times the woman had thought she felt something in the woods but calling out to it had brought her no answers. Must’ve been an animal.

Posting some random photos that don’t belong into any sets. There’s not enough of each to make a separate entry either, so here’s a random set. xD

I’m so sorry some of these are a different colour (last ones most notably and the gif), but I went out at sunset and naturally the light kept fading. I would’ve edited them similar from the RAW images, but I accidentally rolled the mode dial on my camera at some point and thus didn’t get raw images of half of the photos. Sigh.

Some random single photos I haven’t posted here yet. :3

I took Seere out the other day because the weather seemed nice. However, it got cloudy and started snowing as soon as I got outside, so I will be re-doing this shoot, and I’ll have someone else with her too. I also have plans for a wintery Sigrun shoot. I’ll be doing both once the weather gets cold again and we get some new snow. Right now all the snow has fallen off the trees and the snow is full of holes and stuff that’s fallen off the trees.
I hope to be able to re-do this soon. x3
That’s what Seere is. :3
I was only supposed to take a few snowy portraits of her but I ended up snapping 140 shots. Obviously I thinned them down. Didn’t like any of the full photos either, so it ended up as a “few portraits” in the end.
