I blame dark_skada...

September 27th, 2009 (06:42 pm)

dark_skada and mmc_ningyouai have ganged up on me.

dark_skada is the local Pullip enabler like I'm the local resin enabler. She has been plotting to get more of the local bjd collectors interested in Pullips and other sundry dolls of that style. I liked dark_skada's girl dolls and found them interesting, but not particularly a style of doll I'd get for myself. xxalicechanxx brought hers to her first meetup (long before she got her first bjd) and that had been the first time I'd seen one. I didn't really notice dark_skada plotting until she brought a guy doll (known as a Taeyang) to one of the meetups. Going after our love of pretty boys, methinks.

Note: our local doll meetups welcome all kinds of dolls, action figures, stuffed animals and such. It's cool seeing them all together, and all loved.

Anyway, dark_skada has been tempting both mmc_ningyouai and resiniverous for a while, and then resiniverous won his at the akon doll panel raffle. Another one bites the dust! LOL!

mmc_ningyouai was recently talking about all the different Taeyangs she has planned over on her LJ with the three of us (dark_skada being the third) and I kept saying - next year, next year. Then mmc_ningyouai mentioned me getting two to be Eiri and Shuichi and there it was - the reason to get a pair. *face into palm* Oh fuck...

dark_skada got me some links and I start looking. And I run into a SALE. With REALLY good prices. Oh fuck again...

Yep, I succumbed. No, they're not different heights. Yes, I'll need to get Eiri a suit, or at least black pants to go with the dress shirt and tie he already has as default.

And I'll need new eye chips, which I would order tonight but the Cool Cats website keeps shutting down on me. Well, the current chips are fine since the characters DO actually have those colours at some point in their design history, but I'd prefer the Andrew having golden eyes and the Rayne have purple eyes. Chips are cheap so I'll get a bunch of different shades and give dark_skada the ones I don't use.

dark_skada knows I'll be crying for help with them eventually, especially when I have to change chips. We may have to have a Pullip workday and 'teach onna how to work with these guys' meetup.

Anyway, click link to see the future Pullip/Taeyang Eiri and Shuichi...



Shu will get the plaid pieces so Eiri will need some pants pretty soon. I'm looking around for something now. He'll have to wear the jeans I ordered with the dolls until then. Shu will pretty much remain in the 'stage' outfit. Eiri gets Shu's gun, naturally!

Wigs will probably remain the same. I like the Rayne wig and the Andrew wig is perfect. If they arrive and I don't like it, I have TONS of SD-sized Gravi coloured wigs for both characters to choose from.

They'll need different names, naturally. I'll probably integrate the Taeyang name in some way into their names. Maybe Taeyu and Shutae. I already know they'll sit on my Gravitation area on top of the manga/anime bookcases and not do much more than that.

Juniper Holding Wig

MUAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA. I WIIIIIIIIIIN.

We can totally get an obitsu slim body and rebody so one is shorter than the other, I know how to do that :D

Also, Shannon, Mel and I all need things from coolcat, we should figure out doing an order for all of us?

And then when Shannon's Lavi comes, we can all get together and I'll show everyone what all they're doing. It'll be loads of fun!!!

Hug - Eiri and Shuichi

But then the Rayne's clothes and shoes won't fit anymore if the body gets changed to something shorter.

I already live with two versions of the Gravi guys that are the same height so these guys won't be a problem. Even my two sets of custom Eiri and Shuichi plushies are the same height.

I suppose we could do an order together - when will you place it? I also need a bunch of kips so I can start kipping some of the resin.

I see at least two yellow and at least three purple chips in the 20 line to get and try.

Juniper Spring Flower Breath

I'm sitting in a room with Mel and Shannon at the moment, and we're all up for it anytime. Mel offered to be the one we all tell what we're ordering? LOL

The clothes will still fit, he's only slightly shorter, although he is skinnier. But if you're good with it, it's easier (and cheaper? lol)

Trio of Terror

So, you've ALL been plotting against me today, huddled over a caldron of Pullip parts, cackling about catching me! *points to icon* That's really YOU three!

I'm ready to order now. Shall I get back with you in a moment with my list?

I should order some elastic for some of the guys, too. Guess I need to talk with mel directly, or order it later.

What's Rayne from "Neo-Angelique" like? Has it been licensed or can I download fansubs somewhere?

Thanks for the recommendation! I started at anime-eden and after downloading the first season (and getting one of those nasty things that lies about having your computer having a virus and only THEIR software can fix it), I found that Anime News Network had a link to all 26 eps through Crunchyroll. Go fig!

I'm in the middle of ep 5 of the first season. Rayne does amuse me, as do all the male harem characters. The way he's always flashing his navel definitely reminds me of Shuichi! LOL!

chibi cuteness

I won't be doing much except change eye chips in both and change the Andrew from kilt to pants. They're pretty much set the way I want them from stock. I got some shoes and pants for them on eBay but nothing spectacular. I see them as shelf sitters more than anything else.
