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.
Without further ado, onto some pictures below the break!
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!
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!
Another month (July) has come and gone, and I have a couple of new faceups to show. I have sadly been sick with the plague, again, but at least it is a mild run of it.
While I've been recovering from Covid I have been slowly working on my own dolls, as I do not want to germ all over commissions. Today I'm gonna go and get retested to see if I am still contagious or not.
Anyway, dolls to post are a Dream Valley Abu, a Faewoods Dolls Freesia, a MYOU DouDou and a Dollzone April.
So without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
I've been a bit scattered this month due to various reasons, but I was able to finish 3 more faceups, so that's a positive end for this month for sure. Two commissions, and one I squeezed in for myself as well after a setback with one commission that is still a WIP, but that is okay, I am able to continue on it this week.
I do have a couple WIPs on my desk currently, and 2 more incoming from April (shipping from the USA to Austria can be really, really slow!).
Once I get through those, I will reopen slots. Currently I am aiming for mid to late June for opening slots again. So keep your eyes peeled, I will post here for sure when I am able to take on new commissions!
Anyway, today I'm going to show an April Story Juliet with an eye mod, my Dollzone Minas, and a Gem of Doll Capricorn plus her horns. Without further ado, onto the pictures under the read more break!
Hello all! It's been a hot minute since I last posted, not for lack of having you content to post, but rather I had a lot of errangs and appointments these past couple of weeks. I am so grateful for everyone that commissioned me through my birthday sale last month, it's been a tremendous boost of confidence and joy!
I am still expecting a few commissions to come in, therefore I am still keeping my slots closed for now.
But in better news, I have a lot of new things to share! I have an Asleep Eidolon Agnes in SD scale, a Doll Family-A Auriel, a Dollzone Ivana set of wings, a Luts KDF Summer Event 2013 head, and a set of Smart Doll hands.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the read more break!
Another rotation around the sun and I am a year older as of yesterday. This past year has been full of ups and downs, making me sick at times. I'm going to ease gently into this new year and keep my expectations modest haha. I didn't extend the contract of the job past my trial month, so now I am back to looking for something more fitting.
Since it was my 33rd birthday on April 1st, how about a special birthday sale?
Commission one service, and get the second at 33% off!
Discount will be applied to the smaller amount. I'm officially reopening slots for this month as I am nearly done with all my outstanding commissions! By the time the new commissions arrive I should be done with the others.
Anyway, I got some faceups to share here! One is a Volks SD Belle in pure skin normal, and the other is my Iplehouse EID Camilla in peach gold skin. I have a couple more things to document, so those I will share in another post.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the read more break!
It's been a good while since I have posted a blog entry here, so it's time to amend that! I have been a busy bee since the last post, and I started a new full time job. Currently I am still finding the balance between doing commissions and working full time, so please bear with me. I will be opening slots come April, since I am making good progress through my current commissions.
Dolls I will show today are a Resinsoul Ju, a Doll Leaves Lan, a small MissNekotaku Chibihana, and to finish posting the faceups for February I will also post my Limhwa EOS Nina. This month so far I have finished two faceups, and I have a couple more on my desk to complete. Once that is all done, I will reopen slots.
So without further ado, onto the pictures below the read more break!
I've been super productive this month, not only did I do 6 faceups, but I also finished a manicure, a gender mod, and the long leg tattoos on a long-time commission. I feel pretty good about all the work I've done so far! I will break up the work into a couple of posts over the next few days, or the post will just go on forever.
The little FYI I want to cover is that I am going to start charging for old faceup removal, as that takes a lot of effort and time, and even materials. I sometimes sit as long as 1.5 hours at removing a faceup thoroughly so I can do my own. Charges start at €5, and can go up if the faceup is hard to remove. Thank you for understanding!
Anyway, sculpts I will show today are a Napalm Doll Hush and her hands, an Asleep Eidolon Agnes (who got the gender mod from angel to girl body), and a Dollmore Judith Zinna. Let's hop on under the read more break for the pictures!
It is that time again to post new faceups I've completed the past month. I've also closed for new slots for the time being as I have a lot of commissions to get through, for which I am very grateful! Once I get down to only two remaining commissions, I will reopen slots.
I'm currently working on 3 heads at once on my desk, most of which are natural based so it should take too long to get those done. Another multipart commission arrived this morning while I was faceupping, so that is exciting too.
As for the FYI, I have restructured how I price my faceups. Instead of charging based on the doll's height, I am going to go off head size, as I should have ages ago. When I first started faceupping, most dolls had the same head sizes within their respective ranges, but now there is so much variety that I needed to clarify my pricing. That way I won't be over- or under-charging for the work that goes into my faceups.
I am of course honoring all the current estimates that I have already accepted. To get a better idea of my pricing, please head on over to the Commission & Prices page.
Anyway, today I will show the faceups I completed in January 2022. Sculpts to show are a Popovy Sisters Blue Jay, twin Doll Family-A, and a Moonlight Jewel Dolls Aylean. Pictures and commentary are under the read more break!
2021 has come and gone, and we are 3 days into 2022. What a year 2021 was too... I got severe burnout, caught covid, lost my job, my wife lost her job, rebuilt my mental health, established goals for my future and how I want to proceed, and generally I focused on myself. I'm grateful we had the resources for me to do so.
Dollwise I wasn't as proactive as in previous years, as I only managed 30 faceups in 2021, and 39 in 2020. These two last years have been really hard on everyone.
I did manage to crank out a couple more things in December 2021, so I will post those now. I got to finish painting the Iplehouse HID Woman hands, Miracle Doll 1/4 Girl hands, Sugarble Darlene, Dollpamm Loli girl body, a Fairyland RLF Luna, and a Fairyland MNF Miyu. Be prepared for a long post.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
I was busy in November, and now in December too, so I got a couple of new things to show! I repainted my Lost Chronicles Allurial, and two commission faceups on a Faewoods Dolls Orchidaceae and an Immortality of Soul (old) Jaguar.
I have a good start on my remaining commissions as well, so those should be done soon once the weather stops pouring rain or being too humid.
Anyway, without further ado, onto some pictures below the break!
As promised, here is the second blog post showcasing the remainder of the work I've gotten done this month. I have everything packed up and ready to go home now, with address labels and custom forms.
Today to show I have a Fantasy Doll Amber which I dyed and painted, a Goblin Tales Baby Mossling, a Flower & Junior Mizi.W, and my Dollzone April.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
I have been such a busy bee this past month, and have lots of new work to show. So much in fact that I will need to split them up over two blog posts as to not be utterly overwhelming. It really is a lot!
Today I will show my Volks YoSD Ayumu, a Dollshe Molly, and my Resinsoul Ai, who is my 500th completed faceup.
This also means I will post my giant faceup collage. I will need to start a new one!
Without further ado, onto the pictures under the cut!
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!
