tired

current mood: tired

The digital camera has been such fun. I shot over 125 shots of a 'fashion show' last night. It was mostly to have a record of Hatori in his new Matt O'Neill clothing - showing how the shirts need to be brought in in the back eventually (if I am feeling unlazy), how one suit fits better than the other, how nice the shoes and pants fit, and working more with Hatori and his poses - he's getting a little less stiff but his body is not jointed as well as the others so he will always be a stoic laddie-boy. He also got some books last night so he is a happy bit of resin.

I had wanted to do this the night before but rat wanted to finish Final Fantasy 6, so that's what we did. I guess that was fate, because yesterday I found out I have a bad case of osteoporosis, really unacceptable for my age group, and will have to start yet another lifestyle change to start building the bones back strong. Doing the doll shoot was a nice diversion from thinking about that. The guys have been therapeutic, even though having packages not being delivered and not having a pink slip left is stressful.

I am debating about sueding Shuichi's hip joint before the con, which is a major flop point. It doesn't help matters when his underwear constantly gets into the groove so I cannot reset his torso without having to dig the material out all the time. He may have to go commando until I can fix him.

Update on the Megi head:

Change has finally contacted me and will be sending me a replacement head, with faceup, to replace the current one, which is too dark and yellow for the rest of the skintone. I will send the old head back when I get the new one. I just hope the faceup details are as good as the one Ulat did. It is really a shame about the dark face because the details are so delicate and pretty.

Miki might kill you.

Dolls /are/ a very good stress-escape. I wish I had Miki at work with me. u_u

Also, Miki goes commando all the time, unless he's in a skirt and has bloomers on. :D;;;

And...after reading Chikara's bio...I think I love him. ;_;

Shuichi looks out the window

I almost brought one of the guys to the office with me today but I was sorting laundry and became late to work so I rushed out - and forgot my cellphone, too.

I suspect I will find Chikara in the middle of the dirty laundry when I get home, sleeping...

Chikara and Miki are of the same general size so I know they would have fun together. Chikara really is a cat in many ways. It has been interesting having his personality develop in front of rat and I without any real preconceived notions except for him not being entirely human. rat has been commenting on Chikara's cat-like tendencies, too.

Shu goes commando when he wears pants - the pants are so tight they will not go over the underwear. He wears undies when in kimono because he has a tendency to flash everyone if he doesn't. All the guys have undies when in kimono because they like to sit with their legs apart.

I think the people at my office would probaly be like "buhhhh"

Chikara. ♥ I let Miki develop in front of me, but he didn't turn out to be anything superspecial. I wish we lived closer so that they could visit and stuff. ;_;

Yeah...Miki in kimono...I've started making him wear pants so he doesn't flash people.

My office-mate completely ignores whatever doll I bring to work.

Yeah, it would be fun to see how those two boys would interact!

My office-mate [ticket-booth-mate? XD] would probably think he was cute, but my bosses would probably be all WTF at me. XD;;

::resists urge to mail Miki to you for a visit:: o_o

Ah, do resist that urge! Chikara will be without a head after the con next weekend and will remain that way for at least a month, until they get a new one painted and sent to me.

This is actually disturbing me more than I thought. I am going to miss that impish face, even though it is the wrong colour.

Well yes, but then I'll want to send Miki when he has a new head. XD

...wait. He's getting a different head entirely? OHGODNO. My brain will not be able to reconcile that. ;____________;

Yes, I am trading the too dark skintone one for (hopefully) one that lets his real skintone to come through but still have the delicate details of the original.

Wait. Okay. I mean...he'll have the same features, right? ;_;

Shuichi looks out the window

Oh yes! He will be the same sculpt - I love the Megi face!

However, I am sorely tempted by the Mo head - but that will be another doll with either white or tanned skin.

Okayokay good because I love the Megi face too. o_o

I'm tempted by just about every single DollShe mold, personally. -_-; They're my weak point.

I REALLY want a Bermann for Eiri but I may have to settle for a Hound if I cannot get one of those elusive doggies.

Oooohhhhh Bermann. ;_______________; Hound is nice too, though...but hot damn, a Bermann. They're evil for releasing them the way they do. D:

Yes, they are evil, but the artist does such incredible work!

Yeah, I can see how it'd be a delightful distraction. I'm reading around on DoA, and there seems to be two or three different types of doll owners... those who think of them as children, those who think of them as lovers, and those who think of them as extentions of their own self. I suspect I'll be either of the latter two, if I ever got myself one.

I'm experiencing heavy lag issues with DoA, it's making it difficult to do my normal research. Is it that way for you, too, or is that a special privilage reserved for Alaskans?

I must be a different type than the typical. They are not children (except maybe Chikara!) they are definitely not lovers (I have a more than adequate one, thank you!), and they are more like extensions of other characters - Shuichi, Hatori and a kitten.

The slow page loads happen periodically at DoA. They seem to do some kind of cleanup and it is better for a while, then it happens again. They say it has to do with the sometimes large sig files some people have and shouldn't. I got called on the carpet for mine at one point and got rid of some things.
