Doll Projects

Despite owning a lot of dolls, my skill in doing much with them besides playing with them is limited.  But being more proficient with the artistic side of the BJD hobby is definitely a goal of mine.

I've had a lot of ideas for little projects here and there that I wanted to do with various dolls of mine: little things to fix, touch-ups to add, posing improvements, etc.  But my list of To-Do Projects is much longer than my list of Accomplished Projects.

A friend has been staying with me for the past week, and sometimes it takes some inspiration from someone else to actually get moving on projects I guess.  But get moving, I did!  One thing led to another (as often is the case with "ferret brain" and I actually wound up getting a lot done.

Confidence

This past Saturday, I left home to head to Fayetteville for the monthly Clockwork & High Tea Society (CHiTS) meet.  I was decked out in a Sweet Lolita coordinate with two more outfits hanging in my backseat for later that night and the following day which was the day of the monthly Northwest/Central Arkansas Lolita meetup.  I stopped in Blackwell, a small town along I-40, thinking that a gas station there wouldn't possibly be very busy.  Well, I was wrong.  Seemed like every redneck and their brother was there gassing up their trucks, RVs, and fourwheelers.  As I put gas in my car and headed into the mini-mart to pick up something to drink, I made a lot of heads turn.  One older gentleman shouted at me "I like your dress!" so I smiled and thanked him. 

Once back on the road, I realized what courage it took me to go out in public in Lolita.  I live in Arkansas - not the most open-minded of places.  As you can imagine, it's very rare that people know what the fashion is or see anyone dressing in it.  Of course, anyone dressed different than the norm draws a lot of attention in such a homogenous place.  But not only did I realize what courage it took me to go out in Lolita, I also realized how far I've come.

Time to Dust Off the Old Blog

Well hello!  It's been awhile since I posted here.  I won't make a ton of excuses, but basically there's been so much going on in my life - and while I should have been blogging about it all, for many reasons I just didn't.  Lack of time, lack of feeling social, lack of.. I don't know.  I think sometimes I set all these social networking goals for myself - updating this blog, making video prompts, updating Twitter and Tumblr, keeping active on Google+, working on my webpage, staying current on forums - and then it gets to be too much and too overwhelming or something, and I wind up not doing any of it.  Like with the video prompts - I had some trouble with my editing software, and that just sort of made me unmotivated to do any vlogging OR blogging.  Not sure why it works that way.  Oh well.  Now I'm rambling.

Soo I Lied

Last month I posted a blog called Goodbye Soo about how Delf "Soo" was being discontinued, along with the other Delfs, and how I debated getting her but ultimately decided not to.

Welllll, surprise.  I changed my mind.  ^_^

At the last minute, some friends helped convince me not to give up on the last chance to get a doll that I wanted.  So, I ordered her on November 15th - which was not only the last day to order any of the Delfs, but also the first day of the Luts Winter Event.

My "Soo", named Juliet, arrived today.  :D

(Slightly Belated) A2F Recap!

For the first time ever, I got to go to the Arkansas Anime Festival last weekend, and it was a blast!  The Arkansas Anime Festival, or A2F for short, is held twice a year in the Northwest part of the state, so December 2-4 was the fall/winter edition, and there will be another next spring.

I first made plans to go to A2F back in July or August, I believe, so I'd been looking forward to it for awhile.  The dates were pushed back from November to December, but really I think it wound up working out for the best (more on this later).  Originally, A2F would have been my first con (besides animal-related conventions/expos and the one Star Trek convention my parents took me to when I was very young), but then I wound up going to GlitchCon for just a day back in September.  So A2F was really still my first full con experience staying in the host hotel and going for the whole weekend.
