Well, I got hit hard with the crud in December and wasn’t as productive as I hoped I’d be. I did manage some work before I succumbed to illness in the beginning of the month, but it was way less than I planned for. Oh well, at least I did get some things done!
Things I have to show for today are a Popovy Sisters Tawny Owl on Body IV in coral skin, a Fairyland Feeple60 El Elf Event A 2021 head, and a Doll Family-H 1/3 scale Small bust piece. The last two belong together so. Just as a quick warning, this post does contain doll nudity.
Without further ado, onto some pictures and blathering under the break!
New Work - Nov 9th, 2022
Thank you to everyone that has commissioned me since I opened up commissions in October. It took a bit to get my slots filled up, so I haven't officially closed commissions yet. October I didn't have terribly much to work on, but I do have some things to share! Today I am only sharing the work I did in October, November has already been busy and it's only day 9.
Things I worked on and completed in October are a Popovy Sisters Bony on the Body III, then a Popovy Sisters Little Owl on the Body II, a Frappzilla Moon Polaris, and my Kana Doll No. 8 Lucien.
Please note that there is full doll nudity in this post as I did two body blushes.

FYI & New Work - Sept. 30th, 2022
I have good news this rainy last day of September. I have pretty much caught up with all my outstanding commissions, to the point I finally feel ready to take on more work. I haven't been commission-less these past couple of months, taken on some here and there. I admit I was dealing with some creative burnout, but I am finally getting back on track.
So this FYI's TL;DR is that I am reopening commissions this coming week!
I am aiming for opening slots on Wednesday October 5th, 2022.
Important to mention is that I can only take on heads and mani/pedicures this round as I have two full body commissions on me right now that recently arrived, and to prevent a heavy backlog I want to limit how many body blushes I do a round. Thank you for understanding!
Now that that's out of the way, I have a lot of new work to show! I got a Birdcube Lipu head and bunny ears, a Dream Valley Bustet body, a Dream Valley Rita, an Autumn Goblin Tales Mossling (all 5 faceplates and the body), as well as a Smart Doll Chaos V01 to show off. Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
New Work - Sept. 17th, 2022
It's been a hot minute since I've posted on here. I have quite a bit of work to share since I had Covid-19 again the first two weeks of August. I have been posting the collages to the Examples section here, along with some new owner pics as well.
Despite this run of Covid being mild, it still fatigued me horribly and it's taken me quite a while to get back into the swing of working on commissions. I have finished 5 faceups, 2 body blushes, and some fantasy parts since then.
Today I will only share the work I still completed in August, otherwise it's just too long of a blog post. Things to share are a Fairyland MNF Alicia, a Popovy Sisters Blue Jay and her body, and a Soom Heliot Fantasy head from the Cosmos release.
Without further ado, onto the pictures and ramblings under the break!
New Work - July 5th, 2022
I don't have as much work to show for the month of June as I normally do as I was sick for half of it. But I did manage to get some stuff worked on and finished before and on the tailend of my illness.
I still have lots of commissions to finish up, so slots will remain closed for now until my load lightens a bit. Thank you for understanding, I am hoping to re-open slots at the end of this month.
I got two faceups and a body blush done in June. One faceup is on a Faewoods Dolls Delphinium, and the other was done on a Doll Leaves Betty along with her body.

FYI + New Work - July 24th, 2021
It's been quite a while since I've posted a blog update here, so for once I am doing the FYI first and then I will go over the new work I've completed. It's quite a bit, some personal work, and I will put the images under the read more break as usual.
The FYI I will keep above it as I feel it is important to make it properly visible without needing to open the blog post.
I've really dropped the ball for several months now, and I would like to apologize for that. I've been struggling with my mental health more so than usual, and dealing with the post-Covid-19 effects has been draining and tiring. I lost my job right when I got sick with Covid-19 and have been on sick leave since trying to recover both physically and mentally.
I'd also like to thank everyone who has or wants to commission me for your patience. My communication has been spotty at best the last 7 months...
I am almost done with my humongous commission backlog, there's one left where I am waiting on the approval on the mod-plan before I dive into that one as well. The rest just need to be mailed (though every remaining box requires custom forms).
Since July 1st, the EU has implemented a new system for taxing packages and goods from abroad (outside of the EU). There is no more minimum threshold for avoiding VAT charges (which are 20% of the declared value in Austria), which certainly puts a damper on things... I am still willing to accept non-EU commissions, but please be aware that the client/commissioner will be accountable for the custom fees.
Another thing I want to touch on is that I can only accept 1 full body commission per openings. And the more complex it is the longer it's gonna take me. I'm sorry, I just don't want to fall as far behind as this past year. Thank you for understanding!
Now that that is all written down, let me go over what sculpts I worked on the past few months:
For faceups I repainted my Dollzone Daomiao-2 (again) and for body work I finished up the Doll Leaves 43cm V2 Girl body blush, as well as 3 sets of Resinsoul MSD Jointed Hands. Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
New Work - May 22nd, 2021
I've been quite the busy bee since the last time I posted, despite the frequently cruddy weather. I'm slowly getting back on track of things and packed up all my finished commissions to ready them for shipping to their owners.
I would also like to apologize for my lack of communication lately, there's been a lot of stress in my family life along with a worsening of my mental state, but I am slowly pulling myself together again. I am bound and determined to answer the last couple of emails to confirm shipping addresses and quotes, as well as fill out the customs forms for each one.
Anyway, things to show today are a Withdoll Ash elf, a modded Smart Doll Chaos Envisage, the Dollzone Venus Halo body (B45-017) with her fantasy/SciFi parts, and a Volks SD Saki.
Without further ado, onto the pictures under the cut!
I have several new things to show, but for once I will go into the FYI first before I show the newest work:
I recently lost my job, and due to how they let me go, I cannot get unemployment until April because I am technically still employed until the end of this month (March 2021). I am gonna have to be frugal with my spending, to stretch my savings as much as I can. Don't worry, my wife and I have an emergency fund that covers 3 months of our expenses. Fortunately my wife is still employed, so there's a good chance we can stretch the emergency fund even further.
As to what this means for my commissions, is that I raised my prices. I've been undercharging for ages considering the skill and experience that I have. Thank you for understanding!
All current commissions that I have agreed to take on will remain at the quoted price. So no sudden extra charges for those!
Now, for the work I want to show I have my Dragondoll Cheng, a Gulliver Small Studio Xiaoxi Micro Mermaid, and the Iplehouse J.I.D. Body. Be warned, the last set of pictures has doll nudity.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
New Work - Dec. 27th, 2020
Okay, I am still bad at updating here, and I apologize for that. With the holidays I had little time to devote to the website or faceup work. That'll be my New Year's Resolution, keep up to date better (like I told myself at the beginning of this year, and we all know how that went).
Anyway, today I will show a Fairyland RealFee Pano, a MYOU Grace, and an Iplehouse J.I.D. Benny. I only have 2 faceups and 4 body blushes left to do, and I can finally reopen commissions. The end is nigh!
Without further ado, pictures under the read more break.
New Work - Oct. 26th, 2020
I've been really dropping the ball here, and I want to apologize for that. 2020 has been getting to me like everyone else, and the weather as well as my day job have been wearing me down. But, I am still trying to work through my backlog.
This post will show a lot of new work, such as the Resinsoul Twilight centaur body, Resinsoul Dai body, jointed hands in SD and MSD size from Resinsoul, a Fairyland MNF Dark Elf Soo, and my Doll in Mind Bellosse.
Without further ado, onto the pictures under the cut!
New Work - July 5th, 2020
I have a lot, A LOT, of new work to show. I'd been struggling through June with bad weather, home office, then returning to the office, but I have gotten some new work to show!
Things I've worked on are a Volks DDH-10, Dream Valley Ann in tan, Angell Studio Cassie, Impldoll Colin, two Goblin Tales Baby Mosslings, and my Dollzone Mann. I also got the Resinsoul Twilight commission continued, but I will post those in a separate post.
Anyway, without further ado, onto the pictures under the break!
New Work - May 20th, 2020
So I've really dropped the ball on updating my website in a timely manner when I finished working on dolls. At least it's better late than never!
Things I've worked on lately were once again my Dollzone Daomiao (I hosted a small workshop over Discord), the Resinsoul Mei body, and I dented the Resinsoul Twilight commission. So good progress, but plenty more to do!

New Work + FYI - Nov 21st, 2019
I was finally able to finish up a large commission a day or two ago! It consisted of 3 SD heads and two pet dolls. The heads I had already finished and posted over a week ago, but the two pet dolls, LoongSoul Poi, I finished up this week. I'm quite pleased with them as is the client!
If you don't want to read through my blathering about the two dragons, just skip down to the bolded FYI section to find out the news. It is in regards to when I'll reopen slots again.

New Work - Oct 27th, 2019
I'm finally getting back into the swing of things and cranking out commissions! This past week I was able to finish a full body blush and face up on a Magic Time Rachael in normal pink skin. She had come with a previous face up, which I wiped to turn her into a cute cyberpunk-goth!

New Work - Oct 23rd, 2019
It's been a while since I've had anything to update, but I am slowly making my way through the commissions! I wasn't doing so hot up until this week mentally or physically, plus it's been super foggy most of the day. Today is no different and there's a blanket of fog.
But anyway, I completed the Unoa Alchemy Lusis's body blush and snuck one of my own dolls in for a face up as a little pick me up from the past few weeks.
