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.
