Sueding, Slings and Slutwear

June 4th, 2006 (11:41 pm)

I sueded Shuichi's popping hip joint last night. It wasn't too difficult. Pulling the torso away from the hips showed me I could tighten the leg elastic and it would help the gangly cat syndrome as well as the hip problem.

He still flops but it doesn't happen as easily as before.

I carried Shu around in the doll Mayawrap on Saturday to see how it would work for akon next weekend. I felt some pain in my ribs after a while so I stopped at a local pharmacy and picked up a rib belt and finally got a cane. I have no idea where my Yaoi paddle is and it was not the best of canes last year - too low so it got to my back after a while.

I need to figure out a better way to carry him in the sling. His feet kept slipping out and one time his head slipped out the front and his wig landed on the ground. I am using a wide rubber band around his head to prevent a lot of slippage but when his head is cradled in the fabric close to my chest, the fabric movements shift the wig around a lot.

I still haven't decided what outfit Shu will be wearing the first day of the con, either. The various slutwear pieces would make him look more like a stage Shu but they are all black and I do wish to avoid the Goth look many dolls wear. I like my guy to stand out a bit. I am still thinking about it...

I just wish I could find some pink platform boots in a guy size...

And speaking of black... Shu wore a black shirt recently and when I took it off, the black had settled on his body. I could see his nipples and abs were darker in places. I ran a Mr. Clean sponge over his chest and it came away dirty. I went ahead and ran it over his entire body and got quite a bit of grey crap off him. I am going to wash any black fabric garments in the future so this does not happen again.
