We went for a walk today :) It was really hot and it's hard to believe there was snow three weeks ago :) I felt some urge for colors so I chose red tartan dress witch is actually a child dress :) But it fits me, so I don't know what kind of child should wear it.
Black, gold and bronze... The blacker then black goth in me is boiling with anger :D well, I know this color pop is going to end soon and black will take over once again.
To day was a super warm day. So I went out to have a coffee with my boyfriend during his lunch break :) I was in a super good mood after cleaning all flat. It was all tidy and nice so I decided I must to reward myself properly for such a good work with vacuum cleaner :D and to dress extra pretty.
I found a new place to take photos. I think it's much better than the dark corridor.
Stockings from my collection :)
This is the dress I want to turn into a Lolita dress by adding lace to it.
I wore my j-punk skirt under the dress to make it fluffy.
I painted the jacket myself. I just wanted something that nobody else would have ;) And I like it.
And what look is complete without make up?? None! I love the way it came out :)
I bought a black eye liner at last. And a silver one that was on sale. Couldn't resist ;)
I colored my hair again. Now it's a dark vine color. I used Garnier 100% stuff.
I took out the bat bow at the last minute and choose big and long earrings for accessors. But it's still strange how a blond girl wearing a bright turquoise blue coat got less attention them me :D You don't need bright colors to be bright :D
Did I forgot to post photos of my newest creations??? OMG, how forgetful I am
Pendant "Soul Devourer"
Pendant "Soul Devourer"
It's a beautiful pendant that combines bat wings an coffin in it. Made from polymer clay and hanged on brass chain it has a stunning shape of ademonic bat wings.
"Queen of the Night Shadows"
Hand made from polymer clay "Queen of the Night shadows" is a magnificent pendant with a glass bead crown cameo and a silver pentagram on it. Bat wings that look like real are handmade by me. It's a charming accessories witch is powerful as well since I as creator always leave a bit of my soul in all of my works.
You can find them here ;) as well as all the other bats :)
Oh, I went shopping today since It was a nice day and tomorrow I'm off to work again :( So I woke up, made myself to look nice and black and went out to spend some money :P I don't think I looked very extraordinary but a woman in a shop still gave me strange looks.I think she was praying her daughter wouldn't become like me :D That made my smile.
My camera doesn't like to take pics of whole object :S It makes them blurry.
I always dress all black when going shopping. Colors are for occasions :D This time I had my favorite striped scarf on. It's super long and I love it. My messenger bag with pirate skull is always good for shopping. It's big enough to carry all my stuff.
Well, my hunt was successful and now I have some nice things in my wardrobe :)
I always wanted spiderweb lace top and now I got one. It will be perfect with any sweeter with a big neckline :) I would like it to be a little bit longer but it was only 1,5 dollar so I couldn't resist :)
This witch skirt also got my attention. I decided that it will be perfect for everyday use in spring and summer. It's light, made from two different fabrics and makes me look really thin :D
I love this top from DIVIDED. The top of the chest is transparent and looks really cute with a Victorian industrial jacket I have :) My wardrobe is full of different style goth clothes. What can I say... I'm a mood person and I go from romantic Victorian or Vampire to Metalhead or Industrial all the time.
It was a fun trip and when I came back and checked my mailbox I found glass beads I ordered from Ebay. Wohoo:)
That means more jewelery is coming for you :) There's still some pieces that I need to post on Etsy. I wanted to make some chokers during my free days but unfortunately I cut off my nails too short and couldn't pick even a needle. I felt like a claw-less puppy :( I'll never cut my nails this short again. After all, it's my tool of work. I hope they will be fine after a few days...
I made myself a nice bowl of ramen in the end of the day. Now I can peacefully wait for tomorrow.
How was your Wednesday? :)
Lately I'm searching the net for my perfect BJ (ball joined) doll. My boyfriend's friend just got one and that triggered my desire to get myself one too. I wanted one for a long time, but never started a real search. I just looked at random photos at Google. They all looked beautiful to me :) So, two days ago I decided that it's time to pick one, to count how much it will cost and to start money attracting magic :D Well when you have perceptible desire it's more easy to make it real. I've seen many pretty dolls but I had no idea, how to
choose the one that would really make me happy.They are not cheap (about 600 dollar for nude doll) and I
don't want to spend my money on a doll I won't be satisfied with latter. So I started from viewing the providers
pages ( not Google pics :). I went to the one I already knew - Dollmore.I have an image of a doll I would want.
It's definitely not a boy or kid doll. It mast be a male doll, and a senior of course. I want a sexy grown up male
doll with a hot muscular body. And it has to be not the sweet looking guy but but wicked one >:)
Rarrrr :) That's why I was super exited when I sow this demonic beauty on Dollmore.
It's a dollpire (doll+vampire) Victor Lou. I love the third eye and his look is so evil it even scares me. My boyfriend said he looks too spooky realistic. And said "No" for this one. Well I knew it's not the one so I didn't argued him much. But I still find it attractive and my kind of doll. There's also a model with no third eye.
He's cute but out of sale. There's some more dollpires at Dollmore so check them out if you want.
The next page I checked was Luts.com I found some great dolls there too. And their prices are quite nice.
It's a Senior Delf ABADON. He's almost 600 dollars with face up and new body.
I like his cold gaze. It would be a perfect Sesshomaru sama ( I'm anime fan) with a white wig :3
He would look nice in a black wig: too) I added him to my list of choices.
Here's another doll from Luts.com that I liked. It's Super Senior Delf AVALANCHE. His look isn't wicked enough but he's kind of cute and a little bit seductive, I would say. I like the smoky eyes make up and for them he goes to my list of choices.
I also tried to find some info and tips for people who are buying the ball joint dolls for the first time. I wanted to know what sellers are recommended, where my attention should be payed while choosing a body, a face and a whole doll.
The main tips would be:
- decide on a character you want (cute or evil, girl or boy)
- Choose a height you want. Take a meter and try to find out how tall your doll would look. They are taller then they might look in a photos so 70 cm doll is REALLY big one.
- See how body and head looks without any blush and face up. You must like it.
- The hair and clothes are ordered separate so never buy a doll just because you like the way its hair or clothes looks on it. You can buy the "hot" hair separate for any other model.
- Body blushing is optional. It looks nice when you are making photos of you almost naked model :P Some dolls has body blush included to the price and some not. Check it out before making an order but you can actually make it yourself later. It's not that hard ;) :D.
- Face up. If you can make it yourself than don't order it. But I don't think the first time BJD buying person would be able to paint the face buy it self :). So just don't over do it. I don't recommend ordering extraordinary or super heavy make up for you first dolls (blood tiers, scar and so on ). Then you'll be able to make any character you want by buying extra wigs and clothes.
This is the main tips I would suggest for you. I also checked some forums for people opinion and feedback about different sellers. The one I liked the most was Den of Angels. I found some new seller there too :) And I checked their dolls immediately. I simply checked those sellers who had the biggest number of reviews. That means that more people were buying from them and more opinions can be found.
So I went to Spirit Doll. It's dark and gloomy. And more Gothic I would say. But there is not much dolls for sale. And the ones I likes were already sold out :( I still found this two guys attractive enough to have my attention :)
It's Thorn from "Proud" category. He is dark, gloomy and has a cold gaze. However there was too little photos of him. And I won't buy a doll if I cant see how it looks...
Another beauty was Cycas from the same category. But the luck of photos is not helping to decide if I want him.
Then I accidentally found one page with strange name "Mint on Card. Inc" I checked the reviews of it and found that people were quite happy with their product so I decided to visit it. And OMG!!! I fell in love at the firt sight!!!
The prince of Evilness and Wickedness itself stole my heart away... I screamed when I so his Photos.
I'm so enchanted by him... And the prise is really normal, I would say.
I like this page. You can find a lot of photos of the doll from different angles as well as the photo of it's unpainted base.
I Googled and found more photos of this model.
I like the red haired and pale skin version more...
Love his nails in this photo...
However... After a day just looking at his photos I found that his forehead begins to annoy me :(
You can't see it in a first photo so I decided that I still want him, but just without that wrinkle on his forehead.
So I present you Ao Ze Tian (62cm) He has the same head, just without pointy ears (and I love pointy ones so thats not very good :/ ) and no wrinkles...
Just imagine him with red eyes and red hair... :3
I'll be comparing two of them to see if I can get that evilness without a wrinkle on a forehead. Tell me your opinion. It would be really helpful :) Since my boyfriend only says "Yes" or "No" :D or "Not bad" XD
Well' it's a dilemma for me, but I still have much time so I'll be keeping on searching.
I would appreciate comments of those who has a BJD. Please, help a newbie with your wise comments :)
The winner was Abadon from Luts and I love him. I glad I didn't end ordering from HZ BJDS because they seem to have a strangely transparent skin. Some might like it but I don't
I love dolls. If I could, I would have a room full of dolls. Since my childhood I had lots of dolls but they all were designed to look like babies or children. And I never had an interest in them.
This is me and my dad. And dolls... My parents had more fun buying them, then me playing with them :D
The first doll that I really liked, was Barbie. Laugh if you want. But it's true. Since than I had Barbiemania which grown to a real doll mania. I loved the dolls that looked like a grown up human and not babies. I never played "mom and child" with my dolls. I played fashion shows, hair salons and, I have to admit, some kinky stuff, when my friend got Ken :D:D
I firs heard about ball jointed dolls when I was 18 and it was something amazing.... and soooo expensive. It' still is :(
I was searching the net, looking at their photos and hoping one day to get one to. I still do. And I think I'll get one in this or the next year. But the stuff I came a year ago was something super amazing. It was an art of dolls itself. An amazing beauty and pureness, fragility and absolute perfection. As if god created humans I found an artist ho created dolls in the same manner. And those dolls were ENCHANTED DOLL created by Marina Bychkova. Her dolls are made from porcelain and hand painted by Marina. The tattoos, the eye lashes, pubic hairs...The dolls are super detailed and almost like real beings. Of course such perfection is not cheap. If I remember good the nude doll's price begins from 2000 dollars. But who cares :D
Just gaze at them...
I fall in love every time I see pics of her dolls. Some of them are real beauties. Who am I kiding..They all are!!! What I mean is that some of her dolls projects are a little spooky but non less beautiful.
Domestic Abuse. Doll battered by her abusive, controlling and jealous husband. Still in progress.
A porcelain tribute to breast cancer fighters and the choices they face.
Doll based on the main protagonist from the novel Anna Karenina written by Leo Tolstoy in an orthopedic corset and a prosthetic leg device.
I can't get enough of her art. I won't be writing about Marina since you can discover her on her blog Enchanted dolls.
Enjoy and let your self be caught by the beauty of her art.
