Happy Late Summer Everyone!
I'm sitting here in the middle of the night posting. I recently took a temporary assignment at work that has me working from 8:30PM to 5AM, just for three weeks. On my days off, I'm attempting to stay awake, so I don't have to go through jet lag (shift lag?) every week.
Here I offer to you Harmon and Mel posing in this little room I made for them. The pattern walls are prints I bought at IKEA. The white walls are just stretched canvas that I layered beneath. When I built the structure, it became clear that this room was to be very clean and modern, and a bit moody. It kind of gives off that modern vampire vibe... so I went with it. My better half therealdollnerd, gave me the little organge Oleum cat this past holiday, I love when things come together. All I needed were a few pumpkins to finish off the Autumnal mood, and the terrible ol' Walmart had just what I needed. How charmingly coincidental that I'm posting as it closes in on the witching hour.
Even though it's still summer (technically), I guess my dolls are ready for all the fun Autumn has to offer. Even though I never am... SUMMER FOREVER PLEASE!
I wanted to dress them to fit the mood, and Mel's dress from Inamorata was perfect, even though I already photographed her in it. For Harmon, it was a little harder. He's a bit bigger than Tonner guys, he's more robust around the chest, and his legs are long. I had to dig a little deeper to find him some kit! After researching for a bit, I found a spread sheet of BJD measurements. Lo and behold, Harmon was close enough to Iplehouse's JID body. It had to be ordered and shipped from Asia. When the box came, I was so excited, because as any doll enthusiast knows, a box like this could be a big win or big loss. I won!
