City of Irving Video Shoot

August 10th, 2009 (02:03 am)

The video shoot for the City of Irving went well. They stuck me in front of the camera so I made Shuichi sit with me. It was a lot of fun and it helped having Shu (my first doll) with me for moral support, and demos. For some reason, they thought I was the fount of knowledge, which I'm not. I don't know much about porcelain dolls but they asked me about them. I just bent Shuichi up and said 'porcelain dolls can't do this!', and they did a closeup shot of it, too.

The interviewer asked me about my name 'resin enabler'. It was fun having some of the group yell back when I turned and asked who I had enabled.

She asked good questions (did her research beforehand - thumbs up, Cathy!) and I felt really comfortable in front of the camera. It was like doing a Scarborough bit. I'm going to look like Jaba the Hut, though. SO fat on camera I am...

The interviewer was surprised and pleased with the amount of men at the meetup. They took shots of faceup work (mmc_ningyouai), Pullip's eye mechanics and discussion (dark_skada is amazing), restringing (themasterjinn) and other things. I liked how fullmetalsqishy mentioned his dolls were part of his stories because I had mentioned in my part of the interview how some people purchase dolls and customize them to be personifications of their story characters.

Kyrenea is going to keep us posted on when it will be posted online and when we can get copies. We're also going to get copies of the b-rolls so we can put bits together for anime cons and other events.

FYI: This is the first time in forever I took EVERYONE to a meetup. FIVE bags full.

I ordered some large bags from Dollmore today...

shuichi and eiri - double exposure

How did Eiri feel when you were bending Shuichi all over the place - proud or jealous?

I'm glad the meetup and interview went well.

Speaking of Jabba the Hutt, here is some Saiyuki fanart of Gojyo as Han Solo and Sanzo as Princess Leia, including one of Han rescuing a bikini-clad princess from Jabba the Hutt. The artist does mostly fanart of Gojyo, Sanzo, or the two of them (she's a 35 shipper). She comes up with some interesting scenarios and her drawings are nicely done.

Hands - Shuichi and Eiri

Eiri was at the other end of the LONG line of tables displaying dolls so he had no opinion! LOL!

At one point, the Irving library wanted Shu sitting closeby because he was the doll that started HER desire to start collecting. I sat him on the table and walked away for a moment. They laughed and I came back - seemed Shu had slipped back onto his back because he didn't want to sit nicely. So I grabbed Eiri and laid him out on his side so Shu could prop up against him. Naturally, Eiri's hands immediately snapped around his Shu and that's how they were filmed.

Loved the artwork! She should do Goku as Jabba, just because of both eating all the time!

Sanzo/Gojyo differences

Wow! Texas is more tolerant than I thought, or is ass-grabbing (or waist grabbing) okay between male dolls but not male people? When I was in law school (admittedly an age ago) a Hispanic student from the Austin area and UT grad said she didn't like to travel outside of the Austin area.

I believe error256 leaves her artwork unlocked, although it's all under adult content warnings, if you want to look at more of it. She only draws Goku as part of the group and as an incidental character, as far as I can tell (I've gone back at least a year in her drawings, maybe more); sometimes, because she gets goaded by sharpeslass, she draws Hakkai with Gojyo or by himself and not just as part of the group. She did a naked Hakkai (with an open book covering his private parts) and Hakkai fucking Gojyo while whisking a sauce in a pan on the stove (multitasking Hakkai).

She's drawn Gojyo spanking Sanzo on his bare ass with his fan, Sanzo and Gojyo as half (or less) dressed cowboys, with Sanzo "riding" Gojyo, Sanzo and Gojyo having sex against a wall, kissing, etc. etc. It's pretty amazing.

I doubt it's Texas being tolerant, though the Dallas area can have very tolerant pockets around the metroplex. One of the hospitals was state-of-the-art for AIDS treatment back when it was taking so many people out (including my cousin). Dallas has a pretty active gay community and they converted a seedy area full of hookers (we used to go down on the weekend and drive around to look at them) into a great community with high-end stores, restaurants and clubs. rat says he wants gay neighbors because they raise the property values.

I think the doll 'sexual preference' acceptance was because the interviewer had some theatre background, which immediately made her 'one of us'. Shannon told me she pointed out my dolls WERE anime/manga characters and yes, the anime was about two guys. I think Shannon said the cameraman and the interviewer found it amusing, not disgusting.

I'll have to look around error's lj more. I liked the Hakkai piece. Love her watercolour techniques. I just hope her work isn't getting stolen and used without her permission.

Did you ever get around to seeing my Gravitation and Saiyuki fanart?

I have a lot more Gravi art to add but it's all stored on the computer I can't sit at for very long, and it takes time to write up the art process copy. I lost steam.

eiri kissing shu's forehead

I'd tooled around on Planet Witzend before but for some reason hadn't stumbled across the anime art part. Maybe I wasn't looking at the right buttons?

I took a look at your Saiyuki art. I particularly liked Saiyuki Sleeping. I "got" the meaning of the hand placement other than Gojyo's "hidden" hand, which I hadn't thought about. You're right, he's probably causing Sanzo's frown. I'm imagining his hand squeezing Sanzo's butt (assuming Goku is content enough not to notice). You're right; adding the dragon (I can never remember how to spell his name) gives it a more "wholesome" feel. Without him it would look very much like a pile of exhausted bishonens after a particularly enjoyable but strenuous encounter.

I liked most of your individual studies as well; I think Hakkai came out better there than in the group drawing, and you seem to do particularly well with Goku. I thought the second versions of Sanzo and Gojyo were more similar to the manga versions than the first ones.

Didn't have time to tool around all of your Gravitation fanart but I liked the drawings of the two of them together. I'll take a peek later. RL and a story for the Saiyuki kink meme beckon!

It was really great getting to see all your guys in one place again. You have so many now I still don't quite know how you did it. I know I myself still can't wait to see the end result. I felt like what I did for the filming was a pretty horrible job, but hopefully not too bad.
