husky head arrives

current mood: happy

I picked up the Husky head during a bunch of errands today.

When I got him home, I immediately popped a blond wig on him and took him to the media room to show rat. He commented on how he looked dead because he didn't have any eyes. I dug out some yellow eyes, popped them in and took him back for 'inspection'. rat went - Whoa! rat liked the intense look the Husky had.

Yes, rat does have an opinion about the resin men I bring into the house and I ask him about them all the time. He is also sweet about carrying and holding them. I sometimes take one guy out with me when we go run errands and such and he will hold them and pose them to show them off to strangers while I am trying to wrestle with something. Gotta love a man who is willing to hold a doll, or my hot pink purse!

Back to the story - After getting eyes in place, I started looking for some kind of bottle to put him on to begin taking wig comparison shots - no luck. The bottle tops were too large.

So I decided on a whim to take Shuichi's head off and put Husky normal skin on his Iplehouse white body. Not only did the head fit great, the resin tone is just slightly off, meaning Husky could use the body! Who would have guessed? I will be taking some indoor and outdoor photos of this later to show resin differences. I think knowing a smaller body is an option for a DollShe head would be something others would find interesting.

So after I sign off this, I am going to start taking some photos with different blond wigs to see if any really let him 'come out' as Eiri. I know the soft wig I WANT to work but the fur will need to be styled a lot better than it is now.

So while I did not get a Bermann (I really wanted a Froggy!) to be Eiri, I think I have made out pretty well with what I have now. Personally, I think it was meant to be - that I would not win the Bermann so these other lucky 'gifts' would be more appreciated and cherished. Part of the luck has to do with the 'secret', too.

The head DOES have the tiniest crack on the top left eyelid. The black paint is inside it. I think it can be fixed by first q-tipping both inside and out the crack with cleaner then putting outline on the eye.

I also got shoe materials today...

Wohoo, on both counts. Hopefully his "Eiri within" will begin being a bit more obnoxiously on display in the future. *laugh* Faceup will definately help that out, a blank had has a totally different feel from a faceuped head. oO Savvy can attest for that. Naturally looking forward to pictures. *grin*

Shuichi looks out the window

The eyes did help a lot to bring grumpy pants out some.

The wig show was frightening at times. I will definitely be selling some blond wigs after I get everything settled.

Maan, tell me about it. I've bought wigs from online that looked perfectly alright in pictures, but once they were on my doll's head, the effect was totally off, and I'm not even refering just to the Skittle Wig. The Sittle Wig is so hideous, I'll probably wind up keeping it, but the Rhapsodic wigs don't fit any of my crew at all, so I have something like $60 worth of wigs that are slowly turning into cat toys. -_-;

Bad cat! No tribble hunting!

I keep all the wigs in a big white box - I just dumped them in it tonight. Initially I had them in three small boxes organized by size and colour. I stuck the blond box inside the big white box. The MSD sized wigs are thrown into a baggy and others are divided and in baggies, too.

oh yes no doubt about that! kinda funny cause it's looking like i might have another doll before logan. He's wanting to get Luts' Harang set, the one with two heads before he gets anything else since it's the only thing he's currently looking at that is limited, but he wants just one of the heads, but I'm the one that wants the pretty sleeping head and am not letting him sell it, so ... I will have a random boy kind of on accident, but it just means that logan gets to purchase something else the next go... -_- .... will get that lion someday soon...

Nasake - name

Once you order your first doll, the others just start to trickle down...

lol! yah i think i already decided what to do with the sleepy harang. yuki sohma from fuits basket. The slightly feminine looks just add, plus luts carries an exact wig in correct size and colour and eyes as well. ^_^ I think logan is intending to get him around or right after christmas.
