Outfit Post ~ Back to Basics

JSK: Metamorphose Temps de Fille
Necklace: Kumacrafts
Boots: Skechers

I finally got a nice area figured out in my new apartment for taking outfit snaps, so hopefully I can return to more regular outfit posts. I dress up less frequently these days though, since a lot of the time I’m just throwing clothes over ballet tights and leotard to head to the studio. That said, it made me really happy…

I have approximate knowledge of many things. For instance, how the fuck to deal with markers not being evenly absorbed by the paper. I’m not quite at the “OH SHIT THIS IS FAIL START OVER” point, but I’m definitely at the “JUST GIVE IT A WASH OF EGGSHELL THAT’LL EVEN IT OUT” point. Also, my black 005 outliner is fucking smudging. Can nothing go right, today? At least it looks better on the screen than in real life. Huh.

Another self-portrait, of myself dancing.  Nope, I have no limbs, just a giant ButtRuffle that I extend and wave in various directions as wanted ^o^

Strathmore Mixed Media vellum paper works quite nicely for Copics, as it turns out. Nice and smooth, absorbs the ink well, but is sufficiently robust/thick to not soak all the way through (no bleeding onto the next page).  Loooove it!
