Interview with Follow the Wind

Hello everyone! These would be the last interview of 2021, and I'm happy to present you mdamefollow, also known as Follow the Wind, a France-based faceup artist who does terrific works! As always, all the images here are used with permission, and the interview is translated to both English and Spanish. Enjoy!

Hello and thank you for doing the interview! Would you introduce yourself to our readers?
Hello, thank you very much for interviewing me! My name is Eleonore, I go for Follow-the-Wind online, and I create mostly custom face-up for dolls. I collect BJDs and Pullip (even if I seldomly show my Pullip, shame on me!) since 2006. I live in France, not very far from the German borders.

Venezia is Back!

This is definitely the outfit that took the longest to take photos of. I did it quite quickly, as I only needed to sew the pants (croptop and coat were old, and the socks are purchased).

The problem was that when I was changing her heeled feet for the flat ones, the string bounced, cut my finger, and cracked Venezia's calf. I almost died that day. I had been having an awful month, a terrible week, and then V was broken. I tried writing to Iplehouse, and turns out they not only stopped producing Glow Light Brown, they were only offering EMS Premium, and I honestly couldn't afford $50 of shipping just for a $15 parts. Gratefully, I was saved by AirimirOfGondor (read here interview here), who fixed the leg. The matching is not that good, mostly because of the MSC, but for now I can live with it.

After that, a relocation happened, and Venezia was boxed for a while. There isn't much in this post sans this rant and a bunch of photos--I was trying odd angles, and most of them ended up badly focused (I'll blame the chilly wind that forced me to rush, and you cannot rush a manual lens). Anyways, more under the cut.

Sandy is Here!

Very early this year, I shared that I had purchased a new doll--one of Frapzilla's bees, made to be assembled. These dolls are resin but 3D-printed, and come in kits. This means they are unassembled and require thorough sanding. She'll join Merry and Cookie, so for now, I can only show you the box opening and the parts. I hope to share the assembling/makeup process quite soon.

And the funny thing is that the tracking had stopped updating, and suddenly boom! I have a package and Sandy is here! Not having to pay customs in Australia is honestly a miracle. Anyways, onto the box!

Halloween Candies? No! Halloween Cheese!

Excuse me, but proper mice fairy eat what is proper of mice fairies--and that is cheese! A large variety of cheese, without minding its colour, strength, or source either. And you know what they say... those who eat without sharing, end up with pain in their bellies! Or, also known as, "Merry ate too much and got stomachache" Exhibit 1023.

Anyways, not much in the mood to write the entire story, but hopefully, the photos are telling enough. Enjoy!

Pretty Halloween!

Hello everyone!!! Happy Halloween! I had this idea for the outfit, and I really like how it turned out. Truth to be told, Kanon is a very cute doll, and she'll look adorably cute in anything I put her own. In any case, given that we are again in lockdown, my photography and interest has been dwindling. Too much work, and it is difficult to keep up. Please excuse me if in the future I skip some weeks from posting.

Anyways, here is a pic, and more under the cut. Therer won't be much text, just some rants.
