Everyone knows I have been painting painting painting painting and shipping shipping shipping shipping… The great news is that almost all Iracebeth are shipped! ALMOST!
And I am for now, painting to two Iracebeth won during the giveaway. Right after that ( tomorrow then lol) I’ll start to paint the Maheya and finish the ship them as well!
It’s been a bit tough I must say… Cause this time, I had two different dolls to ship… which makes more than 95 dolls to pack and ship. That’s a lot. But it’s awesome to send them to their new homes
and it drives me to one of those moments when I want it to never stop ^^
Anyway, I have been painting a LOT! I painted 37 iracebeth in… 7 days/night. It might seem not so much said just like this, but check below LOL :
Yep that’s a blister on my thumb. What a brush can do to you eh… You have been all adorably patient with me and I truly thank you for that. If I painted that much in such short time, it’s because I HATE to wait myself, so I can easily imagine how BORING it must be for all of you. And also because the customs delayed the Iracebeth for a while so I couldn’t ship them for Christmas as promised for I didn’t have them yet by the time. And I HATE to not keep my word.
But you’ve all been awesome and I thank you very much for your kindness ^^ YOU ROCK GUYS!!
Here are now some examples of the face ups I did for the Red Queen.
This one belongs to Lorraine, my beloved friend and owner of the great doll’s french forum DOLLLS.
That one belongs to Patricia, she asked for ” whatever you want with freckles.” ^^
This very special one is the one my dear friend Maryanne, she said, just as for her Ettie ” dark, mean, mystical creature of Night” and I got inspired by Asian Theater and their sort of ” red devils”. I hope you’ll love her sweetie ^^
Now here is the Aleah won in the giveaway by Aeris! with a special tattoo for luck to stay with this delightful young woman ^^ I must say I really loved to make that face up, with her description, I understood she wanted a “nude face up”. Only living soft flesh with nothing to enhance the doll but only a perfect skin tone. I really like this one!
Let me introduce you the sisters painted for my own adored sister of Heart, Maria. Please meet Lilac Aleah and Ivory Maheya! As you can see, my sister also asked for a Nude Face Up for her Maheya, and “whatever you want to paint” for her aleah. I LOVE YOU CRAZY MUCH SISTER!! ❤
Let me talk a bit about my Humpty dilemma I had these past days… I intended to make a very limited (and VERY LAST preorder for my egg girl) Capuccino edition for Humpty Dumpty. So I announced to my collectors that there will be 20 seats available for this very special girl in my newsletter. I didn’t expect that all would be booked within 48 hours… °_O
So here was my problem : I promised a public preorder but couldn’t make it anymore. That could have sound like it was a must to be among my collector’s list to get that special doll, like if other people were not good enough. and I HATE that. So, after a little talk with My P<3, my Otherself Paulette Goodreau, I decided to add 15 more seats to open in February a public preorder on my new website CKDOLLS. That way, it’ll be possible for everyone ( even though the seats are limited) to get his Humpty. Note that the following picture SUCKS and that in person, the Cappucino skin tone, especially created for me by my manufacturer is lighter ^^
The last paragraph for tonight is about Nexeven!
I should have her resin samples in a few days. So I’ll show face ups for her right away. I know that for a few of you, to have not seen her in resin first is an issue, and as it’s been asked to me several times; I agree to let her preorder open till I’ll get the resin sample dolls. Even though it’ll be Rock and Roll cause she has been a huge success and more orders means more face ups and more shipping; but one can REALLY NOT complain about this but rather thank you all very very much for welcoming my girl in your collection THANK YOU ❤
