To the Sea

Posted on

If you thought the pics of last post took long to put up, you are wrong. Here is pictures from end of the summer, from a cruise trip I was on. Gosh. x_x;;

So I took one Monster High doll with me, Skelita, and took pics of her while on the trip. I really like the pics, tough it was quite challenging to try to take pics there. I was really happy and lucky for the weather tough, it was really nice. ^^

First it was windy, so the hair is everywhere. (Tough i like it on some pics, it creates movement.) Second, I had a chain on her leg while taking photos on the reeling, because I wanted to make sure she won’t fall. I should have planned this ahead, I crafted something I found on my bag on there. So it was huge, black wire… Also on some pics I hold the doll tight too… The sunny day was also bit tricky to take pics,so some are very bright or white. And not to mention people staring at me… XD
(Also some pics have the circle, ignore it, I had something on the lence and i didn’t notice it until i got the pics on my comp…)

Either way, to the pics now:

Rin opening~

Posted on

Hi! I ordered Rin Hoshizora (by Azone) in January this year. Little did I know, it was going to be a lot longer wait than I was ever ready for. She was supposed to come out in May. I sat on the money, because Amiami charges it when it arrives. Well, wait tenses up. I wanted to order something to go with her, but their ordering system was really unfriendly to customer in my opinion. I couldn’t order the things to go with her, of course after it got delay it was good i did not, but I had more trouble with them than I thought I would. I was pissed too since they didn’t apologize or anything, tough at least they told me she was delayed. For 3 months. Of course this (the delay) is not Amiami’s fault, but I didn’t like how they handled the customer service. I was not ready for the waiting. I didn’t know Azone could fuck it up that much.

I have waited long times before. First super long wait was 6 months, when the doll was supposed to get ready for shipping after 1 month, 2 at max. It was Custom House and they had sales that were cheap in price, I guess they underestimated the amount of orders they would get. Needless to say that sucked ass too. Second and my longest before this, was from Soom, before they fixed their chedule. It was my first Soom order, and needless to say it sucked too. That was 7 months. I even got a doll shipped from them before, who was ordered 2 or 3 months later, from the same company. Well I am glad they fixed the schedule, because long waiting times suck.

But back to Rin. Well, it didn’t end there. On August, they had another delay, of 1 month. Same thing on September. I really started to crack up by them. Then FUCKING FINALLY they got it. And the sitting ended, I paid it, and the doll was shipped. It still took time and went on November and then I finally got her. I was worried the whole thing would make me unable to like her and all, since long waiting times have sucked my bond with some dolls before, because there was so much negativity before I got it. Thank god it didn’t happen with Rin, she is the cutest thing ever. ♥

But let’s dig in with the opening pics, she will also model with the new outfit I knitted before she came (for Monster High tough, fitted her too), so showing kinda handcrafts too. ^^
Also don’t mind the crappy inside light, the sun had set long before I got home with her to open her… ._.;;;

Rest here like always:

Bulbasaur, Kirby and butterfly handcrafts

Posted on

Hi again! I have some crafts to show this time. Bulbasaur ones are from last year, I gave them for sis as git, but forgot to take pics of them. ._.;;; So here they are now. Others are done this year, summer/autumn. I will try to post doll posts soon, I have a lot of pics ever since August but still haven’t got them ready for blog. >_>;;; Well, one day…

There is:
-Bulbasaur tipless mittens (rannustimet/kynsikkäät)
-Kirby purse (kukkaro)
-Butterfly bag (perhospussukka)

Let’s start with Bulbasaur:

Basically half mittens, but since they only show your nails/fingertips (are more warmer, but you still have the ability of using your fingertips) I all them tipless/nail mittens.

Knitted with acrylic yarn. Bulbasaur’s head done while doing the whole mitten, the details done after, by hand copying the loops. Design is mine, I had no pattern or whatsoever as base, I also knitted it myself.

Close up of the details.
