New Work - June 4th, 2023
Another month done with, and a couple of new pieces to share!
May was a hectic and stressful month, but I still managed to do a couple of faceups. I only managed 3 as I had very few commissions come in last month, but hey, better some than none! I was also sick a lot May and had a lot of extra things to do, so I'm glad I was able to do something creative.
I painted one of those cute Penny's Blind Box Antu Centaurs (Ponder/Thought), a LatiDoll Blue Rucas, and an Iplehouse J.I.D Sierra. Without further ado, onto the pictures and rambles under the read more break!
FYI + New Work - May 2nd, 2023
It's May, so now I am gonna post the completed work from April, but before I get into that I wanted to go over the FYI.
The cost of living has gone up horribly this year along with my rent, so I needed to increase my prices as well. Please see Commission & Prices for the new costs. All estimates I have already provided are valid and won't be changed.
Commissions are still open, so feel free to contact me for a quote or a slot!
Now with the FYI out of the way, let's cover what aesthetics I did the last month. I worked on a Dollzone Po, an Iplehouse EID Gentle Akando, a pair of Miracle Doll 1/4 girl feet, a Dollmore Kid Sona, and a pair of Fairyland MNF Roller Skates.
Without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
New Work - April 8th, 2023
As many of you have already seen, I have reopened commissions a week ago on my birthday. I am still open to accepting a few more slots, so if you need a faceup from within the EU, please don't hesitate to reach out to me!
I was a busy bee in March, so I got quite a few more things to show to finish up the month with work I've completed. There's 2 faceups and 3 body blushes, so please be aware there is doll nudity in this post.
Today I will share a Granado 15Ascent Ninth and his body, a Maskcat Doll 2020 Anniversary Event Cat doll, and the biggest of my commissions this round, a Dollzone Chun who got the full treatement including mods.
So without further ado, onto the pictures under the read more break!
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 - Dec 10th, 2022
As promised, although delayed, I present to you the remaining faceups for last month. It took me a bit to get to writing the continuation for the November completed faceups, but hey, better late than never!
Today I got quite a bit of work to throw your ways, so be prepared for them! To show today I have a Faewoods Dolls Dahlia Skeleton, a Faewoods Dolls Orchidaceae Frankenstein, a Fairyland RealFee Luna vampire edition, and last but now least I got a trio consisting of Sheepy Dolls Pishu, Puff, and Fluff.
So without further ado, onto some pictures under the break!
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.
Without further ado, onto some pictures and rambling under the break!
New Work - May 31st, 2022
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!
New Work - April 22nd, 2022
Thank you so much to everyone that took advantage of my birthday sale, it makes me really happy to have such a positive response. You guys are really making me feel loved! I am about to close slots again until I work through all these commissions that are incoming. I have the best clients I swear!
Anyway, I have a lot of new work to show! Today I will show the detail shots of the Dream Valley Zhao and his fantasy parts, a set of Doll Family-H SD sized male jointed hands, a Lillycat Lyse, my MYOU DouDou, a Felix Doll Brownie NeNe, and a Dollzone Miss Kitty and her ears.
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!
New Work - Mar 19th, 2022
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!
FYI & New Work - Feb. 20th, 2022
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!
New Work & FYI - Feb 7th, 2022
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!
