Since I love Komugi so much I wanted to show you guys what I’ve been working on for the past year! She is a DIM Laia head on a Leekeworld art body, and she is such a sweetheart I love her so much~~

I just got her clothes done the other day and I just love how she is turning out! I might get a better wig sometime for her piggy tails. I want to also get her some shoes and a few cute outfits in the future~

Aaaaaaand… the face up is done! :D Took me pretty much the whole friggin’ day, but so far I’m very pleased with the result <3 Some fun facts: 

  • Sealant: despite all my preparations, I pretty much ended up doing the exact opposite of what I’d planned to do XD after four years, my beloved Liquitex Matte spray can decided to die on me JUST today. No matter how much I tried, the friggin’ sealant wouldn’t get out of the can AT ALL. So I ended up using Lukas Spray Film instead, despite not really doing much testing with it beforehand (well, I did try it on the head cap first, but, unlike with Liquitex, I didn’t let it stay there for a whole couple of days and just waited around 20 minutes, just to make sure it wouldn’t melt the resin). Anyway, I’m glad I ended up using it, because the results were SO MUCH BETTER than anything I’ve ever achieved using Liquitex :O the texture was a lot smoother and way easier to work with. So yeah, a happy accident indeed. 
  • Materials: again, ended up using everything BUT what I’d planned to use :’D The brushes I had turned out to be way too big for his face, so I ended up using a bunch of cheap ass nail art brushes… which, however, did their job pretty well. Also, despite spending months collecting a whole set of pastels to use on the face up, I eventually ended up repainting the shit out of him using some acrylics I bought… this morning .___. My pastel lines were looking all weird, uneven and dirty (you can see them in the second pic) and I didn’t really like that, soooo… acrylics ftw U____U
  • Expectation vs reality: removing his eyes was about as painful as I thought it’d be. I was super scared of breaking him, especially after I realised that the resin is somewhat thin on one of his eyes D: Placing them back in, however, was easier than I thought. Granted, I was still super scared to break him, but overally it was pretty quick to do. Eyelashes were also surprisingly not as difficult to place as I would have thought :O Wanna know what was really difficult to make? THAT FUCKING BANDANA. Since it will take a while for Aaron’s new wig to arrive, I decided to get myself a piece of fabric and try to make him a bandana to use with his current wig and cover his balding forehead. Easy, right? NOPE. Wrapping it around his head and making it stay in place was A PAIN IN THE ASS. Took me a good twenty minutes to come up with a somewhat decent result. And then, of course, I ended up removing it anyway because I read around that coloured fabric can stain the resin and I don’t want to risk his forehead turning red, so… much ado about nothing ;___;

Girl Power!

Dollmore Keeley Sum (modded) - Rain
Oasisdoll Linglan - Li Pong
Customhouse Hyun - Casey

I figured out my problem with Rain’s new faceup, and managed to fix it without taking the whole thing off. Eventually she’ll have smaller dark eyes and a long curly wig, but this short cut is also cute (it’s on loan from Buck who is bodyless right now).
