Love this girl in Black and White, she photographs really nicely, she's mostly complementary colours and that translates well on film.

Anyway I decided to list her in my Big Cartel shop so if you have an interest go check her out.

This is one of the 'Create A Monster' girls that I got last year but never got around to painting. I'm feeling very rusty after not painting for a month so she didn't come out quite as I had hoped, but she'll do.

I've got two Ever After High girls on their way to me, I'm hoping to paint both this month. I really wanted to try their big, round featureless faces. I like the bobble headed look, they remind me a bit of Blythe.

Meet, Bobby, adorable skull critter by Dominic Qwek. One of the first things I did on getting back home was to open up this guy. I'd ordered him a few weeks ago but of course I haven't been at home to open him.

He's a blank resin figure sculpted by Dominic Qwek who sculpts a whole bunch of awesome monster stuff and sells some pretty amazing blank resin kits.

Bobby is so adorably creepy! I can't wait to get started on painting him, it'll be a great new challenge as it's so different to anything I've painted before. Check out the website if you'd like to see what a pre-painted Bobby looks like.

I thought I'd do the 30 BJD Questions tag and answer a few questions a week because it's an easy thing to do while on vacation. Also I thought this would be fun opportunity to re-post some of my embarrassingly old doll pictures!

You can find the full list of questions over {HERE} I'd love to know your answers so share your doll stories with me in the comments!

8) What is your favourite size?

Yosd! It's funny because I scoffed at this size for the longest time, it seemed weird to me to have a childish looking doll. The pukifees were fine as they were very cartoony but the Yosd size seemed more realistically child like which I found odd. I think I changed my mind when I got a Littlefee as a commission,  it was crazy cute so I got myself a LTF Lewi. As soon as I opened the box I thought, YES, because it was such a great size, a real playable size. Yosds just fit in the hand really nicely, they so easy to cart around and pose. I dragged my LTF Lewi all over place lol.

9) What is your least favourite size?

I don't think I have a least favourite size. I used to think I hated the bigger dolls but since getting my Venitu I've come to realise what I hate is dolls that don't pose well. It really boils my blood when I can't get a doll to do a simple thing. I know posing isn't an issue for some people, especially if you're buying to collect and display only, but I buy to use. I've heard people say things like, "this doll poses great, it even sits unassisted!" and I just balk at that because for the price tag on these things you're damn straight it had want to be able to sit unassisted! I mean what's the point of crafting joints if it can't use them? In summation, it's not the size that matters, it's how it can be used ;)

10) Post a picture of a doll and an animal!

12) What do your friends think of your dolls/dolls in general?

I don't know, I'm sure the ones that aren't into dolls think it's weird, but I doubt anyone I know is much surprised that I'm into odd stuff. I think for those who've known me a long time it's just another odd thing I'm into.
