Introducing: Pomona! She is an Alice in Labyrinth “Chloe” head in white resin. I think her and Ermengarde should run away together and join the circus… sadly, they’re both just heads living on borrowed bodies.
Thanks so much to all that attended! Your kindness and enthusiasm made this a truly wonderful and fun weekend! I haven’t hosted panels before, and everyone was very awesome, and asked lots of cool questions etc.
I’m so exhausted though! We totally crammed to make this the best we could, I reeeally hope I didn’t suck. Now, we pack for europe. Oy! I did four panels, one being with Aimee & Elizabeth on BJD and the hobby in the U.S. I didn’t shop at all! Except for one little on sale jpop wig! I did reeeally well (I thought) at the swap meet, which will all go towards Masha. YAYAYAY. Hugs to all I barely got to talk to, and all the cool new people I met who were awesome. Yes. And congrats to the Dollectable team and volunteers who made it all seem to run surprisingly smoothly. Wow. Also! We got to bring Butter the first day, she was so good, and sat quietly during all my panels. Butter is love.
I’m so rambling, I need to go to sleep.
Sorry, I’ve killed my bandwidth, must take down files now!
Here are my panel take-homes and slideshows, for your edification. I can’t leave them up forever, they are 1.5 meg files each!
I’ve updated my face-up panel supply list (on the slideshow pdf above). I mistakenly recommended ACETONE. What we’ve been using as a strong but safe face-up solvent is not acetone, it is a proprietary formula used at my husband’s work. It smells like acetone to me and I never questioned it as it is in an unmarked bottle. Mr. Kallisti questioned me about mentioning it when we got home and we discovered the mixup.
Acetone is not considered safe for resins or plastics. He’s tested it, and in small doses doesn’t seem to damage the resin, but it is definately not recommended! I am very sorry we didn’t catch this before! I’ve updated the presentation!
I… just… gah! I die. Any moment now they may be available to order. They’re listed, but you error out before payment (and there’s no face-up option or shipping).
It will be started to sell from Dec 2, 2006 Only through paypal.
The current selling page is only for test purpose, which has the wrong information on the price and product details. The orders will be cancelled by now.
I trully apologize for this confusion.
And a front page apology on the Korean site about being delayed do to personal reasons.
Ishta: I love her body shot! Except for the hands, very similar to Ksy it seems.
Skadi: I wonder if she has a different body to Ishta? Probably not… but it would be neat if she had a straight, tomboy girl body. Weee!
Meet Dropsy! My Hypermaniac So-som, eeeeeeeeeeeeee!
While we were in LA, I picked up my so-som from a kind benefactor! After waiting since November last year, I’m so happy she’s home! We cleaned and restrung her with elastic (she is originally strung w/ rubber bands). She’s so resentful of being teensy. But she likes caramels.
Some lovely person posted a link to Hypermaniac on DoA this morning showing new pix of the dollies. Yay! I thought I’d post some comparison pix since the picture of Ishta is so much more clear than the last ones.
Ishta’s eyes have a more downward slope, which makes them a bit more melancholy. While Ksy’s mouth is a little more pursed maybe? Thinner at the edges? More pouty. But overall the face shape and nose and jaw are very similar. Not twins, but definately seesters.
I’m very excited to see more of the new girls. I’m also very sad that it has been five months since I paid for my So-som and haven’t received her yet. She’s so wee!
Should be here before Christmas. Heee! I loves me some So-som. She’s 5″. Very wee. She needs clothes!
But um, what ever happened to the Hypermaniac girls for 2005??? I hope they are still in the works. Meh.
