New wig (bought 2nd hand off a friend) and test blouse. She’s wearing the pleated skirt I made way before — these days usually only have time to make at most 1 item as I have other stuff to deal with at current =_=;/
I still need to tweak a part of the bodice area of this top as in certain angles she’s kinda erm exposing herself a bit more than neccessary ^^; will probably have to make something for her to wear inside this blouse.
Anyways having some pretty good light at home, so took some quick pictures during lunch time :3

So remember the Mirai cosplay test sewing?
That version was made for M-bust, and not 100% fine tuned, so when I got the L-bust for my Yukino Mirai chan, I made another version for L-bust and included more details of the actual Mirai Seifuku (school uniform) as kindly commissioned by who else but the actual owner of Mirai Suenaga ^O^!

I work at a friend’s shop once a week, today they had a new shipment… Could I resist the Nendoroid?
Can you say no to this
knife face? No. ^^;
My friend’s Ryu comes to save the day….
Ryoko versus Ryu ROUND ONE, FIGHT!
Ryoko swiftly and gracefully dodged the move, so Ryu tries another move… Stinky Foot!
Ryoko: Ewwww! *Ryu’s leg drops off on cue*
Hadoken versus sharp knife, who will win?
Before actual shooting started, Ryu lifted some weights to buff himself up ^^;
Non related stuff:
Some nifty shipment came in, which included this Batman & Bat-Pod figure thingie, I felt the artwork looked familiar and it turned out it IS my favourite artist Masakazu Katsura’s work ^^; Feel so dumb for not realising it sooner :P (as in the moment I saw it)
fan girl squeeaaallll :P
Near end of the day I borrowed this from my friend (aka boss).. Difficult game desu ^^; I cannot get the last piece right lol other attempts resulted in a few pieces misfited ^^;
Thanks for peeking ^^/!
Haruhi don’t lick the berries! (Nendoroids are quite a handful huh — or maybe it is just Haruhi?)
Oh noes Pastel ink is lost?!
Pastel ink couldn’t find us for a moment and she got really upset…
Thankfully she managed to find her way to us, cheered up very quickly lol
Trying to find some people around… Too bad they’re too busy to be curious lol
Near by is the fountain which is always on, even in winter ^^;
Too bad Pastel ink is a bit washed out/blurry in this one, was using a smaller point and shoot to take some blind shots ^^;
Pastel Ink, stay still for a picture! :P
Don’t wander off without telling me okay?
I like how it seems like Haruhi is directing Pastel ink chan to look at the camera lol
Constant balancing act
Near the end of the photo session came across this… Hippie car? Pastel ink chan was not very willing to go too near it, she told me she saw doll legs on the car o_o;
After I read this news article by Danny I really wanted to try to enter, but at present I only have 2 nendoroids… As much as I like figures, I think I cannot justify having a large collection of them just yet, with dolls at least I could make clothing for them, eventually sell some clothing and “pay them off”, but with figures… *scratch head*
Nevertheless, I took my 2 nendoroids (I have a third one on pre-order) with me to work at the shop (in a Mall) I help out with once a week, and took some pix! :P Sweet Pastel Ink chan waited with me for the bus ^^ I was a bit early and thankfully bus was on time today. ^^
At da shoppu, there are some of the good smile figures tempting me…
Have a break, have a nendoroid by the fountain…
After a long day at work, went to have Pho ^O^ Here are the girls waiting for the Pho…
Thanks for peekin! ^^
Today the Nendoroid which pushed me over the deep end arrived….
I present to you, Pastel Ink Nendoroid! ^O^ I preordered Pastel Ink from HLJ, it felt like it took a while for her to arrive, but to be honest, I was just impatient :P
Isn’t she painfully cute?! I only watched 1-2 episodes of her anime, but her character design in Nendoroid form is just…. irresistable! (nom on her :P)
I can hear her going “Dechu” in Ebichu voice :P in the picture below lol
My Nendoroid happen to come with a couple booboos despite being pretty carefully packaged =_=
Her left twin tail came off and rubbed against her head o_o;
The hand supposed to hold on to her Lolli (wand really) the hole had a stub I had to carefully shave off with a pen knife ^^;
Haruhi is pleased she’s getting a new recruit…
In comparison to Haruhi, Pastel ink can stand on her own a lot easier, due to her shoes ^^; Pastel ink comes with a tiny chair and sitting legs, which I haven’t played with yet, but maybe another time ^^/
I put Haruhi temporarily on a roll of toilet paper (haha!) while I fiddle with Pastel ink :P
She of course tells me I am going to die in my sleep tonite :P
Okay gotta get back to work, so laters (thanks for peeking!)
Inspired by this post on dannychoo.com, I decided to take some close up pictures of some of the dolls I have to compare the eye painting(s)
I painted 2 faces of my dolls before, and was often rather bothered by how the brush strokes shows up if I look closely ^^;
This is Koko, the doll I made before I acquired my Mamachapp doll :P
I made a Hagu doll, based off Hagu from Honey and Clover anime series :) Ugh need to find a better way to paint it neatly :P
Mamachapp doll also obviously factory painted (machine maybe?)
Just for good measure I include my 2 Licca chans ^^
This is the Vintage 2nd Generation licca
This is a repro 2nd generation :) I may try to repaint her lips as I find her lips a little bit too bright ^^;
Haruhi Nendoroid, different material base doll, but I thought to include her for comparison as well.
Her eyes obviously are factory applied, there’s even dithering in the iris part.
I am missing some of the more current liccas which I have (oops) maybe next time :)
Dedicated to our santa’s little helpers!
You will need to use fabrics with a slight stretch for this particular project. You can also make a sleeping cap from this pattern. Use your imagination! :D
