Mini-Review: Makoeyes V2

Delayed review is delayed! Pshh.

When Makoeyes announced that they'll be doing Launch Event for their Revamped V2 eyes, Sayou asked me if I want to join their mini-G.O. (Group Order). I was kinda broke that time but since its a two for one event (buy one, take one), I decided to give it a go. Who wouldn't want a nice pair of urethane eyes at $12.50 each right?

The eyes inside are NOT Mako Eyes. XD

Commission: Short Kimono Dress

I hope its ok with the owner of the dress, but I'd like to share the latest dress I finished.

Its a short kimono/yukata dress for an Iplehouse EID girl. I hope it fits her well. :)

I used some high quality printed Japanese cotton for the main dress and plain midnight blue Swiss cotton (if I remember correctly) for the obi and the obi ribbon (?). 

My favorite part is the black ribbon detail on the obi. I found it by chance on a sale bin at a local fabric shop. The ribbon's geometric flower design suits the kimono pretty well.

Thanks for looking!

One Cloudy Day

Alice will be celebrating her first birthday with me on the 31st, so I got her an early birthday present.

A 1:3 scale Pentax DSLR!<3
And I'm kinda jealous coz she now has a nice camera. LOL I want a real one for myselfffff~

And she might still get another gift. Might. XD

Before moving on, I'd like to apologize for the crappy and inconsistent shots. It was very cloudy and it was about to rain. >.>

Anyway, Alice immediately went out to try using her new camera.

Alice: I'm really sorry for bothering you but...

Alice Goes to La Mesa Ecopark!

Hey there! How was your weekend? I spent most of my time at home sewing and watching The Walking Dead. Yeah, I'm late when it comes to TV shows. >.> It's intense and creepy but it's a must watch! I tell you, I wanted to stop half-way through the first episode, but I soldiered on because I was too intrigued about what will happen next.

But last (last last?) weekend was pretty tiring! My Mom and her officemates decided that we all should go to La Mesa Ecopark for a short outing. I thought I might get bored most of the day, so I brought Alice to accompany me.

La Mesa Ecopark is located in East Fairview Subdivision, Quezon City. Yep, its within Metro Manila! Its right beside the La Mesa Watershed, which is the source of Metro Manila's water supply. I won't go much into the details, but you can visit their website to find out more!

How to save up for your first BJD Part 2: Saving

Note: This is the second part of my How to save up for your first BJD posts. :) See the first one here.

Now that you know your target for your first BJD, here comes the difficult part: saving. This can get quite difficult, depending on your attitude on spending and saving.

Write down or print-out the details of your future doll purchase. Make sure you have all the details on paper: the doll mold, the items you'll be buying with your doll, prices, and shipping. Place it somewhere you can always see it - this will serve as your constant reminder on why you're saving up in the first place.

Face-up Trial, Take Two!

Almost a month after doing Axis' first face-up, I was over with how happy I was with how he looks. I kept on seeing the flaws in my work - the messy eyeliner, the trapped dust, and the weird lines on his eyebrows. With a few hours to spare one hot Sunday, I decided to re-do his face.

Good bye old face-up!
