Not quite there yet

I recently purchased a black Monique wig off of eBay in the style “Bebe” in hopes that it would suit my Marshall Lee inspired Azone Obitsu hybrid. Monique wigs are well liked in the BJD community, as they are very good quality and can be heat styled.

I’ve been having the worst time trying to purchase a wig for my Marshall Lee doll, because most of the wigs out there in this small of a size are for tiny/childish BJDs, and so the hair styles are very childish as well (think… mushroom bowl cut). XD I’m sorry to say that my search will still continue, because check this out:

That’s a lot of poof. Also, it reminds me of Early Bieber, circa the mid 2000’s. And not in a good way. Also, the wig stained my boy’s head! Luckily, I got most of it off with a magic eraser.

I can actually tell you exactly what this wig reminds me of, but I’m not sure how much of it will make sense XD. There’s this manga called Hirunaka no Ryuusei. If you ever plan on reading this manga, **SPOILER ALERT**

The main character is this straight forward, kind of odd high school girl from the country side who moves to the city to live with her uncle. She falls in love with her teacher, who deep down also has feelings for the girl too, but keeps himself from acting on his feelings but is also unable to truly reject her. That guy, when he was younger, dated this girl with a tomboy-ish hair cut who broke up with him to pursue her career. Later in the manga, the tomboy-ish hair cut girl comes back into the picture and is all like “You kids don’t know anything about life. I’m an adult, so I know more than  you. I participate in mature relationships, and as kids, you children should go run off and play,” and she tries to lock down the teacher in a casual relationship. I DON’T LIKE THAT CHARACTER!

/end spoilers

I’m tempted to buy a small amount of black alpaca, and trying to make a wig myself. Or attempting to make one out of yarn as practice, but the last time I tried that, I got frustrated during the part where I had to brush out the yarn strands and then sew them onto the wig cap.

Other than the wig, this boy doll will just need some red converse shoes ^^. I’m really happy with how his outfit came out, and I’m going to try to be patient with his wig situation.

Blythecon Ho!

Yeah that title looks weird. >_< … sorry.

BUT! In a few hours, I will be making my way to Chicago predominantly for Blythe Con USA 2015. This will be my very first Blythe Con, and my first time traversing the streets of Chicago. I’m all packed, with my two girls dressed and ready for our trip. ^^ I’m taking Finley, my mostly stock Cadence Majorette, and Marina, my Project Dollhouse custom. Hopefully, we all make it through the trip with little to no accidents >_<.

I have specific shopping goals for this convention – I’m going to try to limit myself to buying separates, and pieces I could potentially use to dress my future Azone/Obitsu hybrids. I’m also excited to see the tables for quite a number of sellers, as I always prefer buying things in person than over the internet. I’ll most likely upload the Blythe Con photos as soon as I can via the Flickr app, and I’ll also make a post regarding the convention when I get back.

Also before I pop off, my two Azone Pure Neemo Flection XS bodies came in the mail! I ordered a white skin boy body and a natural skin girl body. IMG_3959IMG_3958I posted two photos because I couldn’t quite get the colors to show true (it’s nighttime here :-/ ). XD The white skin boy body is on the left and the natural skin girl body is on the right. Ok, I’ll try my best to describe the colors and other differences I noticed in bullet form (:D just because).

  • The boy body is kind of like NC15 in MAC foundations, and the girl body is kind of a bizarre shade of orange – maybe the lighting is playing tricks on my eyes too… If I had to guess, I’d say maybe the girl body is a very orange NC 30? >_< Best way I can describe it.
  • The boy’s body has a slightly broader torso than the girl body.
  • The girl’s body has a thigh gap.

If the girl’s body isn’t a color match for my Merry Go Round Licca chan’s head, I might just go ahead and make her Fionna Human. Also, I’m starting to think maybe I should try dying the boy body a light grey… but it seems a bit too advanced for me.

😀 Hope everyone has an awesome weekend!
