Bustle Dress from America, 1887
This dress, with its deep, blood red colour and chain motifs seems almost like something out of a vampire story, and I find myself incredibly curious about it. If anyone can dig up more information on this dress, I would love to hear it!


This one is very famous because of those chains.

DIM (Doll In Mind) Love body measurements for sewing purposes.
The body is rather new, so here they are.

As I finished DIM Love body customization for my Natalie I discovered that DollShe oriental skintone is too dark for it. So I recreated the faceup on DollShe fresh head, with some alterations. I tried to copy the eyebrows, though the rest of faceup is much lighter in person due to a skintone difference. Still, it’s the same Natalie. She turned out younger though, and I’m so happy about the result.
I cut off the upper eyelids a bit, so the eyelashes have more room, and deepened the mouth corners.

Whispering Grass Natalie is a BJD head sculpted by me and casted at DollShe craft.

Here are some patterns of the shoes I made for my BJDs.
Full patterns are on my Deviantart: http://scargeear.deviantart.com/gallery/37674088/BJD-measurements-and-patterns

I bought a DIM love body for my Natalie, and it’s a great body (otherwise I wouldn’t choose it) but I had to do a plenty of mods to it.

DIM body is on the left, i-Doll body is on the right for the comparison purpose, as i-Doll is a nice realistic body, but it’s just too big for the character I have in mind.
“Before” photo is on the left, “after” is on the right.

The most noticeable mods:
- additional pieces inserted into the shoulders to make them wider,
- the breasts are made more flat and hanging down,
- knee-thigh area is refined to create some muscle shape there.

There are a plenty of less noticeable mods, lot of them are internal, both subtractive and additive with use of Apoxie Sculpt. I promise to make a full mod chart as I did for FacoDoll before: http://ira-scargeear.tumblr.com/post/63538594412

I’m waiting for ImplDoll heeled feet now to complete the body, because my lady needs a pretty heeled shoes.
Also it looks like I need to paint another Natalie head in DollShe fresh instead of oriental, for a better skintone match.

Do you like a new proportions and shapes?

Some sunset photos again.

We had a massive rain today.

Another set of sunset photos from today.
Shot with Canon EOS 100D and Carl Zeiss Jena Pancolar 50 f/1.8. Looks like this lens will be my main lens despite it’s manual.
