There won't be anything in this post that's news to catcara, fairemma, or toveb, since they're all Production Ariadne initiates--but I thought it might be handy to keep a record here of my progress with the Strangest BJD in the World.
I've had this creaturegirl resin being since way back in April, but haven't quite summoned up the energy to start on the work that she'll need to become a doll rather than a garage-kit-in-progress. Something about this morning's combination of writing a Board of Regents program review for the art department and cleaning up mouse-infestation debris in my kitchen cupboards made me think, "hey, sanding resin doesn't sound so bad after all."
