We've been sick. We, meaning Gideon, then Mat, then me. It's just a head cold and bit of fever, it hasn't really grounded any of us, but it is sure making me sleeeeeepy. Toby doesn't get sick. He licks everything and is always dirty so he has a pretty badass immune system. Also, he always has a deep raspy voice. At open house, his teacher told Mat she loves his deep masculine voice. Ha, what?

I am editing pictures as I type. I sent the doll off to Australia! I am nervous and excited. I had to pack her without her crown or cape on, and I braided her hair, so I'm nervous about her being displayed correctly. (I included a note with instructions, I think it is pretty straightforward.) I also made a custom stand I'm stoked on, but I'm worried about that making the trip too.

Custom base them bones...

These are just quick phone pics. I have better shots that I think I'll put up closer to the show.

I have another Calavera Blythe on my table that I'm hoping to finish by next week and sell directly. I have some fun ideas for her, I think she'll  glow in the dark and in a lantern. We'll see if I can make that work. Also! I had another idea for a custom Blythe, on a chubby body and covered with tattoos. It's super cute in my head.

October is like a shot of adrenaline for me.  I spent yesterday cleaning the studio so I can reset a bit and it is glorious. I've also decorated, of course. We've officially announced to friends that the party will be on Dia de los Muertos and everyone seems really excited, which is great. I am thrilled that I do not have to worry much about costumes for me and Mat and can focus on the boys for Halloween. I'm even gonna make friend craft nights out of decoration prep, so we'll make papel picado and paint some papier-mâché skulls and won't need to do much else besides cook/bake. This year the boys' Halloween costumes are even easy. Gideon wants to be a skeleton knight so I am sort of leaving it in his/Mat's hands and I'll help them build/paint whatever is needed. (Not sure if we're buying or modding or making armor yet.) Toby wants to be the tenth Doctor Who, so he gets another suit and a sonic screwdriver and he will wear them both out far beyond Halloween, so I don't mind buying it all. (He wanted to be the scarecrow from the Wizard of Oz until he realized that if he was the Dr. he'd get a "real" sonic screwdriver and a new suit. He's been wearing his *other* suit and using a flashlight.) Dr. Who is his new obsession. It's all about the fashion for him.

I want to go see the Box Trolls this weekend and I want to watch scary movies. Have you seen the opening for the next season of AHS? AMAZING. It's all so on the nose that I'm worried I won't like this season. I probably will though. I am easy to please.



Last weekend we went to a sewing birthday party for our friend Rodney (at a sew shop, and we made fanny packs, it was totally amazing) and I met an atist who is working on a small stop motiong film. Why aren't I? Let's address that, world.

I hope you are well. It is Friday and it is October, there's always that. <3

I just posted a repaint and some rompers in the shop. :)

I've got a few things for the shop! I'll have them up at 11 this morning. Rompers, still.

Also, new dollies! Quite a few, actually. Most of them got stripped right away, but these ladies just got new dos. I found a Gloom Beach Cleo at Rite Aid of all places. I de-tinseled and straightened her hair. (I found Nefera too (not at Rite Aid) and she got the same treatment. I've discovered I love to de-tinsel.) And Cupid is too sweet. I'm DYING to repaint her, but her hair poofed up so well, she was ready to model as is. I need to learn to enjoy things without making them into a project (or job).

Monster dollies for all.

I totally missed my photo post last week, which is lame. I will make up for it by posting twice this week!

This is Patsy Batsy, a teeny tiny resin figure made by the incredibly awesome Paul Kaiju.

Patsy Batsy!

This is Patsy Batsy after spending the afternoon with me.
