Giving my eyes a break

Whew! So recently I've started down the long winding path of jewelry making. It has been quite fun to experiment with, vastly different from say drawing and sculpting. I tend to have squirrel-like hoarding quirks so my stash of beads have been accumulating for quite some time (like since 2nd grade :cough:) and I had a bunch to work with.

A con however is all the frickin' squinting I have to do when making all this jewelry. Which would have been not too shabby if it weren't for my horrible eyesight and the sizing of some beads (a mere 2mm across!).

So, now that I have concocted a few creations, waiting to be adorn on fancy ladies necks and ears, I have to first take pics (frumph). There is a little voice inside of me that throws a tantrum when it comes to this step. I've never met anyone who adores taking pictures and writing out descriptions for Etsy. Not that it's a chore per se, but more of an arduous task to complete.

Usually I go about (or Rem does) using the sunlight for all the pics, but this blasted winter has stolen any good chance of getting natural light. I had to eventually revert to the good ole' lamp with daylight bulb routine. The pictures didn't come out too grand so it got me thinking. What could I do to get better shots of our miniatures and bling?

After some researching, a light box or tent seem to be the solution. I figure you can easily build one and would cost a bit of pocket change (like $5). I'll take pics of the process and post a tutorial so everyone can build their own :D

Stay tuned!



Heres some of the stuff that's going up on Etsy today:

We're being non-compliant with our posts! D:

Whew, it's been busy around these parts. Along with 1/2 of our creative juices tinkering at school and the other 1/2 at work, we haven't gotten a chance to update.

Well! Time to blow off the dust that's been collecting atop this blog and boogie.

Lucid has been divulging into the mysterious realms of mold making. Let's wish her luck and hope that she comes out of it with all her limbs!

Rem has recently acquired trade skills from the elusive crochet gnomes. She has many tricks up her sleeve and we will be revealing those soon!

As this post comes to a close, let me share with you something that will involuntarily make the corners of your mouth turn upwards:

Beatin' the heat.....with a blunt object.

It has been so sweltering hot the past few days that we've been afraid to trek outside. You can find us most days staying in and playing various games of awesome-ness like Okami and SOUL CALIBUR IV!!!! Wheee!

We have actually finished up some of our creations recently so be on the lookout! Stay tuned for an update of garment wearing proportions!

Do you want to know how I got these scars?

Just as we were about to buy our tickets for the Dark Knight movie, a man in a business suit walks out yelling to everyone about how awesome the Batman movie was. And aside from his drooly excitement he has absolutely right. Rated as PG-13, the writers must have done a lot of editing just to insure no kiddies would have been too scarred. But the two hour and a half long story was full of everything from psychological social experiments, that would make the code of ethics go into epileptic seizures, to unpredictable loops and turns and an ending narrative that bundles the whole package in a nice big batty bow.

What I really liked about the movie is that you didn't necessarily have to be a hardcore fan to still be able to enjoy it. The movie appealed to the young and old alike and was impressive enough to make a couple of middle-aged women dance in their seat regardless of the feelings from their embarrassed families.

And the casting is really up on the scale--Micheal Caine, Gary Oldman, and Morgan Freeman are all terrific actors and such a treat to see on screen. And come on, the late Heath Ledger makes an awesome psychotic Joker, it really makes up for Batman having a 60 year-old smoker's voice.

JunP's Dollie ♥

To put it simply, I just can't wait! She's already been released in Japan but she won't be arriving here until August-September, sadly enough. Fully articulated, with eyes that open and close, separately if you'd like them to or if in case you just wanted her to wink at you-AND, just too cute to pass up. I mean really, look at those adorable geta shoes. And check out that hair!

And if you wanted her to be really special, she's just as customisable as those huge expensive dollfies or Volks or what not. I mean, sure, buying wigs and different acrylic eyes can be a bit of a hassle and painting the face can leave it horribly ugly, and yes sometimes if you DO customise them, things can go badly and *poof* your doll could be scarred for life but hey it's better to have at least tried, right? Besides, what makes her different also makes her least that's the moral of the story for today, children.

Oh...but I can't resist putting up more pictures from them:

♥ Bright Cherry, Oktoberfest partying kinda girl!

♥ Ah well, I like her because she reminds me of Bjork...

♥ And yes, that's right a My Melody doll...the sugar cuteness is just too much.

Like whoa...

The latest installment of the Final Fantasy regime (FFXIII) won't only be for the ps3! As I hear it, it'll take place on the 360 as well. It's just so strange to think about, the ps3 is so sleek sexy and yet...It's like Square Enix just cheated on their spouse of 20-something years for some horribly expense and flashy hooker. That's gotta hurt for the ps3 fans...and really, playing FF on a 360 is just plain....eww.
