Royalty ~ Sewing + Photography Adventure

I really liked how V's dress turned out, actually! And when I went to take those photos of Cookie on the train rails, I thought: I need to make Coco a huge, huge dress similar to V's and take photos of it here. Picture the hubby face-palming, after realizing he would have to go around me, double checking on Coco, my camera and myself.

Oh well, I have some green nearby and I'm gonna take advantage of it for photos! Of course, I'm kind of not worrying about people's looks, actually. I'm more worried about getting robbed. But oh well. Anyways, there is no story here at all, just some photos! And after the pretty ones, I'll share what inspired me and some WIPs I posted on Instagram!

Interview with Whispering Grass

Hello everyone!! It is December, the last month of the year, and that means a new interview! This time, let me introduce you to Ira Scargeear, a very skilled BJD artist who also owns the Whispering Grass brand and dolls. I hope you will enjoy this interview!

As always, it is written in English and Spanish, and all photos were used with permission. So without further ado!

Welcome and thank you for doing this! Can you introduce yourself?
I'm an artist from Ukraine, and I'm into BJDs since 2009 as a hobbyist and since 2012 as an author. I enjoyed doing various sorts of crafts as far as I can remember myself, so making stuff for my dolls and later making dolls was just my usual way. And it took me another two and a half years to get my courage and to become a full-time, self-employed artist.
¡Bienvenida, y gracias por hacer la entrevista! ¿Te introducirías?
Soy una artista de Ucrania, y soy coleccionista de BJDs desde 2009, y desde 2012 también como autora. He disfrutado los distintos tipos de manualidades desde que puedo recordar, así que hacer cosas para mis muñecas era algo tradicional para mí. Y me llevó otros dos años y medios tener el coraje de ser una artista auto-empleada de tiempo completo.

So, this is a small story, and marks the end of the Merry's Magical Beans story. Thank you for going through this with me, and suggesting me new ideas to continue this story.

So, without further ado, have a photo, and the story is under the cut!

Train Rails

Hey there! Well, thing is that around August/September I had a very complicated time. I moved houses and had to spend a lot of time away of my camera and my dollies. Honestly, I missed them far more than I expected. So one day I was finally able to retrieve some of them, and brought Cookie in both of her shapes, with me.

Husband took me outside to a park to take some photos. We went on the wee hours of a Sunday (which means 8am on the morning), but soon some people started walking around. I honestly didn't care, as Cookie was so small that nobody noticed. But hubby was dying of shame so we went back home.

However I managed to grab some really cool photos! I'm thinking of making Coco a dress to take some photos of her on the train rails, actually. There is no story to this photos, so, enjoy!

Dragons' Feelings ~ Lore

Well... I honestly got bored of waiting. My Aileendoll Rot was a precious gift from Aileendoll EU, and I really enjoyed customizing her. However, her eyes had been stuck at customs for over seven months! I even spoke to ShrikeAesthetics and she sent me a new pair... I took these photos back on September, I think... and Shrike eyes arrived just on Friday! I loved this photoshoot, so I couldn't discard it. So here it is! Though soon you will see Theros in all her rainbow-ish glory :D

Since the eyes weren't arriving and I had put Theros on a temporal pair to take some pics of her, I had to write a small lore snippet, explaining why her eyes changed, temporarily. And here it is! First Theros' photostory, and here is to hoping her eyes would be released from customs!
