~ Baking time! ~

--------------

Oh! I'm so happy, today has been a strange but great day. I had my first telephonic interview (in english!!!) and I think I done it perfect hahahahaha xD

But, after my happiness, has come the tragedy. I have decided to made some purchases in Internet  because today has been
THE BLACK FRIDAY!!! 

But I think something is wrong 'cause the shop sended me the order confirmation mail but didn't sent me the payment request  :S
Because this I wrote a mail to the shop and their answering was an automatic mail with this message:   

"Hi there, 
  Thank you for writing. We are currently closed for a local Holiday, and will reopen on November 26. Shipping will resume, and we will begin answering e-mails at that time."

WEIRD!! But, don't mind! I'm really happy today! And I have decided end it with this lovely and tasty creation!

TADÁ!

My very first brioix! It's about 750gr and I have enough flour for make another one of the same weight! Hahahahahaha!!

~ New Pants ~

-------------------

A couple of months ago I was trying to make a new pants for my boyfriend's Action Man but they didn't look really cool...
Today I improve a new pattern and... TADÁ!





They look better but... are a little bit small in the back and so straight. I remade the pattern and, if possible, tomorrow I'll try again :D

~ Reroot wefted PBP ~

--------------------------


Wow! Yesterday I was taking a look at this tutorial in We Love Blythe Brasil and today I decided try to do it with a scalp and 3 wefted bags of hair (all from Coolcat) I'd buy two years ago for give a new look to Sorami (she's based on my young sister and my sister's hair is curly and brown, not red as the doll I used has base (FrFr)).
My fingers hurts a lot but... it looks really great!

If you wanna try to do it you need:
Tools

 Wefted Hair (and a scalp)
 
And of course lots of patience!!!!






Here two pics with my progress till now:

Custom process ~ Restarting

After more than a year I restart customicing a really special doll and I decide reupdate all the photos of the process.


Here the doll as she arrives on 2011

She arrived in very bad conditions and this makes me think about a better future for her.

I restored a little bit her mouth on 2011

I uploaded some pics in Flickr of the make-up I made her in 2011 and how I unmake-up her because I hate how she looks.

The first make-up I done in 2011
 Custom (Front)

Detail of her mouth
Custom (Lips detail)

Detail of her eyes in 2011

Details of her during the unmake-up
 Unmake-up process

It was hard but, little by little the make-up was removed
Unmake-up process

And I repainted her eyemech
Custom eyelid detail

Since then I tried to repaint her face with Montana (in Summer) because the green of her mouth (was rebuilded with green epoxi!!!! O__O), but it didn't give me a really good result and I sanded her face again and put her in a drawer. But, some days ago arrives Carola Escarola at home and I restarted my custom works. And her was not an exception. I was recarving her mouth, taking out some excess.

Now her mouth looks a little bit better

Here a detail of how her mouth looks now
I know it's complicated find the diference because I didn't take photos of her mouth in this position when she cames home. But, now the sides beside the mouth are soft, before they sides were like a precipice didn't looks natural.
BTW I hope I could give her a better life, because she'll be a special gift for someone really special.

I hope I could upload soon new pics of her!

Customizing Carola Escarola

-------------

She's in home since the last week. I adopted she in Oh Blythe! City Forum.

Here the package!


                         My pic when she was just arrived!                                                             Photo of his previous father!




After think a lot why to do I started today customizing her. My boyfriend have a lot of tools and this was incredible, 'cause I don't have all the tools I need to customizing dolls ;P
                                                      Carola opened and ready to be customized!




I carved her mouth and nose. Now it's a bit rounded. But I need to work hard if I want she looks the most prettiest of this city!
