Atsumori Goes to College, or, sweater experiment II
Sasha Blaze
I like this one. Will tweak a couple of things when I make another (and will take better pictures later, too), but, generally speaking, this is exactly what I had in mind when I started.

The cheongsam is from killbill on DoA--nice person, and very good seamstress. These are 12mm Masterpiece eyes in Teakwood; they photograph MUCH lighter than they look in person. Interesting.


(7 a.m. Thursday, blinds closed, results not bad considering there was no light and I was handholding the camera.)

Wow!!! He is REALLY coming along! The sweater is gorgeous - just beautifully done and the colours - lovely!

But that cheongsam is a perfect look for him with his new eyes!!! Can we get close-ups of that beautiful face?

It's funny - I've got a houseful of naked angels and it suits me, but when I think of your house full of meticulously turned out Asian scholars and warriors...I swoon!!!

I do have a fantasy of someday seeing your houseful of naked angels alongside my houseful of overdressed clothes hounds (heh) . . . though until teleportation becomes practical and affordable, the logistics will be a little, um, difficult. This country is too darn big! ;-)

Closeups are still a struggle for me with the new camera, but I'm getting the hang of the 50mm portrait lens at last, I think. More to come!!

Okay, great great sweater. You just are amazingly talented.

Awwwww, no, though I wish I were--but Elizabeth Zimmermann's percentage system is GENIUS. All hail EZ, the Master Knitter of the twentieth century.

Isn't it odd, the dolls that work for us and the dolls that don't? I sent off my one little-kid BJD (CH Little Jr. Jupiter) to a new home over the weekend; I loved him, he was adorable, but I completely ran out of ideas for him about two weeks into his stay with me. It's the big guys for me, with only an occasional variation.

The sweater is fantastic (how long until you start selling them? Sell them! Sellllll theeemmmmm! Orien's a sweater boy and yours are the only ones I've seen that look masculine, have perfectly-scaled stitches, etc.) It looks perfect with those jeans, too. Who did the jeans? They're hawt.

But then I clicked the cut and the first cheongsam photo made my heart jump. What a face on him, my god.

Isn't his face amazing?? Guh. I spent a LARGE portion of yesterday afternoon just sitting and staring at him. (And to think I made speeches to my friends a year or two ago about how I couldn't stand grumpy/sad/unhappy dolls . . .)

*blush* for the sweater compliments, and just hang on, because you betcha I'm going to sell them! The Fall Collection will be coming along in, say, September, or whenever my current knitting binge loses momentum. (I always have a July/August spurt of doll sweater enthusiasm, until the fall semester really sits down on me.) I do want to knit at least a couple more Dollshe-sized Icelandics, because I have those yummy tweedy alpaca yarns I bought for my birthday, and one of them is demanding a grey-blue/caramel/terracotta yoke pattern. I think. We'll see. (*cackling gleefully*)

Thank you SO much for remembering how badly I wanted this sweater for Orien!! And I can't wait to see what else you do. I loooved the photos of your birthday yarnballs - wanted to pet them! - so I'm excited to see what's to come.

Where DID those foxy blue jeans come from?

Oh I love that last picture~! *faints* That hair ... *grabby hands*

Awwwwww, thanks, sweetie!!

Of course, that wig flew off and landed on the other side of the room as soon as I picked him up, but these are the little joys of owning a peanut head like this guy . . .

heheheheh :3 I get annoyed when my dolls wigs fall off, so I sewed a strip of velcrow into the wig-cap, so then it stays on XD

*le sigh* He looks so sophisticalted in his cheongsam outfit *luff* I love your boy~!

Oh, hey--that's the solution! I never want to put moleskin on my dolls' heads, because I love their little bald skulls (in this case, their VERY little bald skulls). But it never occurred to me to modify the wigs instead of the heads, duh . . .

I am so impressed with this cheongsam! I bought it from killbill on DoA--she's a demon seamstress, and (as I remember, anyway) the price was very reasonable.
