sooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooooo! It’s been quite a while, isn’t it?
Well, I must say and apologize for I have been quite overwhelmed with work and BIG weather issues which truly put me behind in my face ups schedule….
First of all, I want to confirm to everyone that I am receiving at the moment many parcels with the elves AND the new bags… so it’s about 17 parcels and I don’t get them all at the same time. But the shipping for Mystery Elves paid in full and BLANK, will start next week 😀 YAAAAAAY!!
Also, a VERY IMPORTANT NOTICE, to all those of you who are adorably asking for more updates and news : My Facebook Page, reached the 5000 friends limit quite a few months ago, BUT, in order to allow everyone to see everything, 99% of my posts are now PUBLIC, so all you have to do to see wip pictures of my work, news, updates and so on is to go THERE, and to click on FOLLOW. You then will be capable to see everything and to comment just as any friend can 🙂
By the way, I want to again, WARMLY thank all of you the incredible welcome you did to the Baby Humpties! THANK YOU SO VERY MUCH!
I am going to take the final photos of them tomorrow and will make another blog post just for them!
To answer questions I had about them : YES, it will be possible to order 1 body and all the faceplates, 2 bodies and all the faceplates, 4 bodies and all the faceplates and also an individual baby : one body, one faceplate. You’ll see, there will be a LOT of different packs available to fulfill everyone’s desires 🙂
The preorder for baby humpties will not open before MAY. For Easter, of course ^^
and the price for ONE baby humpty should be around 250$. I still need to have the production cost confirmed by my manufacturer to be positive about this. I hope it can even be less! 😀
Yes also : they are TINY dolls. They are smaller than a pukifée. A baby Humpty is 12,5cm tall 🙂
Now about Lou…
I have that AMAZING friend I work with since about a year now, ANGIE from Oobie Doll. Every time I open a preorder, it’s also open on her website. Angie knows I am constantly overbooked and that I would need more time to sculpt, so she proposed me to carry Lou the Elf for me. I must say I am very very grateful for her to do so. Therefore ( and be very careful to what follows) LOU’S PREODER OPENS TOMORROW ONLY AT OOBIE DOLL! Not on my website at all!! Just on Oobie Doll! and YES, Sally’s face ups will be available ON OOBIE DOLL FOR LOU! As now, my dear Sally and I are working hand in hand ( lucky me, eh? 😀 ) Angie, proposes, of course, LAYAWAYS just as I do!
I will not propose face ups myself for Lou. I have to prepare the Austin BJDCon where I will have a booth and I will be represented by Sally Chandler of Lilygami Designs and Cheryl Simokat, two most adored friends,very well known and loved in the BJD world 🙂
I will unfortunately not be in person at the con. BUT, I will have a few surprises!! Some exclusives dolls, some VIRTUAL PRESENCE, and a BIG BIG SURPRISE for all those interested in my sculpting…. :)))))
To everyone, and I know who you are already, who makes me the big honor to come at my Table during the con : thank you hand on my heart! Sally could tell you that I was overstressed to have an empty table but it’s already fully booked!!! WOA!!!
Each of my table’s guest will receive a SPECIAL BIG RESIN JOINTED PET, which will not be available anywhere else! VERY EXCLUSIVE GIFT TO THANK YOU 🙂
Lou is a YOSD, she is 36cm tall ( a bit taller than Mystery), she takes 16mm for eyes, her wig size is 7/8. She will be available in Pink Petal and Warm Sand skin tones.
I must say that Lou is, along Stadnik, my most achieved sculpt so far. The details of her body and face are the best I did and she is very special to me, for she is a survivor. Lou almost ended up in the garbage. I lived some very hurtful situations, related to different people, while I was sculpting her, but instead of destroying her; which happens sometimes to my sculpts when I am dissatisfied with them or myself; I beheld myself and decided to sculpt her face just how I felt. This is why Lou has this scared, sad, hurt look. But at the same time she is determined. When you are under the weather, I think that all you can do is waiting for the storm to end. Even if it hurts, even if you loose delusions, even if you’re soaked and scared : it shall pass for it always does. Of course, the best option is to always be in sunshine; but life doesn’t work that way. Lou is a waifed child too. She represents my loneliness as well. I am used to be alone. That would be a lie to say that it’s always OK, cause it’s not. But I am used to, so that loneliness is now a part of me, even whenever it hurts. Anyway, you can’t force people to love you no matter how you love them. And they have been quite a bunch recently to not love me back. But that’s ok too. I think we all live that sort of events in our lives; it’s no fun, but that’s Life and we must go on cause giving up is the WORST thing that could ever happen to everyone of us. Lou is the sculpt representing how we can feel when we are not loved and so very lonely but not giving up….
Anyway, I hope that you enjoy little scared, waifed Lou.
Her preoder will open tomorrow HERE ON OOBIE DOLL. And Sally’s Face up will be again as always, available as an option! ^^
On a more personal note, I want to thank you all very much for your well wishes about my grandmother’s health. ❤
