New Kits & Eye Candy

Kelly Ann by Romie Strydom...

...and Luna by Jannie de Lange (reborned by Helen Jalland)

Yep, you guessed it. I need both of them! Luna de Lange is begging to be reborned into a little boy dressed in Baby Gap, and Kelly Ann is my favorite type of kit...a sleeping baby girl with full lips.

I do *not* want to like any of the new kits. I still have my eye on several older kits that I have not yet had a chance to reborn. Barry, Noelle, Michelle, Angelina, Shyann, Kaelyn, Joyful Heart, Sugar, Elijah, Arianna, and Valentina are all waiting for makeovers. Not to mention my pre-ordered kits like Ava Raine and Trinity.

When will I have time to reborn them all? Well, you know what they say-- where there is a will, there is a way. *wink* I predict lots of painting and rooting in my future.

By the way, my Lotus is coming along great! I completed her buttery-tan base layers today. She sooooo cute! Yes, I am bragging. lol I will share pics of Lotus soon.

Have a great weekend, ladies!


Baby Liu

Adrie Stoete-Schiuteman is such an amazing sculptor, isn't she? This OOAK baby will be reproduced as a kit. What a darling girl! She has Blasian (black & Asian) written all over her face, and I simply can't wait to get my paws on her! hehe

Adrie says it will be a while before Liu is released, so I am glad to have Lotus to work on in the mean time. I know I promised progress shots of Lotus, but I don't have a camera at a moment. I sold my Canon 5D Mark II.

I know I said I loved the Canon 5D Mark II, and I still do, but my curiousity about Nikon got the best of me. I ordered one last night, and it should ship tomorrow! Yay!

I am fully aware that I have a camera buying/selling problem, and that I need professional help. hehe I'll seek help after I have fun with that yummy Nikon, I promise! LOL


Summer Schedule and Painting Service Slots

Friday, July 17, 2009

The painting service waiting list became very confusing after the paint fumes ordeal, so it has been deleted.

Painting orders will be accepted on a rolling basis. If you were on the painting service waiting list, and are still interested in having your kit painted, feel free to contact me when you are ready. :)

My current schedule:

Lotus (complete reborn)
A painted kit for S

I expect to complete these projects late September.


Blogsite On Hold

I am busy with a custom order, so I do not have time to work on my blogsite right now. Hopefully, I will find the time later this summer.

That subject line is a bit lame, I know. :) But I have a reason to be goofy this afternoon. I am excited about the Lotus custom order I'll be working on for the next few weeks and I had to blog about it!

I love the Lotus kit. There is a serious lack of Asian sculpts in the reborn community so I begged {ever so talented sculptress} Adrie Stoete-Schuiteman to make the OOAK version of Lotus into a kit. I was asked to reborn the Lotus prototype last year, but I had to back out at the last minute. I felt so bad.

I wanted to reborn a regular Lotus kit after that, but due to the painting service, custom orders, and the paint fumes ordeal, Lotus never found her way to my work table. I am so thrilled to finally have time to reborn such an amazing kit.

I have always seen the Lotus sculpt as a Southeast Asian baby girl, so I will be giving her a deep tan skin tone. My hopes are that she will closely resemble an infant of Cambodian descent.

I will be posting progress shots of Lotus here while I am painting her. I will share some paint color information as well in case I can help anyone make a darker-skinned Asian baby of their own.

Painting will commence next week! Thank you for reading about my joy.
