That is rather low. It might jump a bit in the last seconds.Snipers. I forgot to use feature plus so its 7 pages deep. Might not go terribly high.
Plus I might start listing without reserves so you could get lucky one day.

That's really great! :) I'm happy for you.

And i'd be shocked if you didn't get in the International Association for BJD Artists. We'll have to start some sort of petition or something.

Yeah the only time we can rest is in retirement or maybe that thing about life after death.

Retirement? My stepfather is 78 and still working! I dont think you can ever really rest. I expect there will be even more work after death. Though probably not work of the body.

Thank you:) Twigling is also in it and some of her thoughts are in the article. I didnt have anything intelligent to say. Just a nice picture of Briar in a kimono luckily not styled or taken by me!

The customized BJD section talks about faceups and modifying and has some neat characters people have made with commertial asian BJD.

Oh well I can do that! I might have to buddy up with someone for transportation though. Maybe PatL
Hows the work going with your girl? Is it getting close to release time?

Well Patl IS supposed to be going and giving a workshop, so that would be a good idea. You can save a bundle by sharing rooms with people too.

My girl, she's going pretty good. tweaking a bit on the elbow design, and will try to get my b/f to give her a coat of grey primer this weekend so we can see what needs more sanding. Still waiting for my new molding and casting supplies ~ I never knew I'd feel so lost having run out of resin!!! Plus I still need to seek out PVC pipe for the mother molds etc.

Oh goodie! I bet we would drive each other crazy ,but it sounds like good fun. I havent been outta my cage in a long while.

Boy you are the perfectionsit huh! I will have to order more resin too. I didnt know you used pvc pipe for the molds. Interesting.

I shared with Armeleia and Batchix, and we had a great time. Plus we did get some sleep too!!

I guess I am a bit of a perfectionist.. with some areas, and then with others it's kinda "that'll do..."

I haven't used PVC before, but have heard of it used so thought I would try it. I'll be cutting it down the middle lengthwise and then taping it up when I'm ready to pour. I should take pictures. I'll use pipe for your molds too and send the pipe when I'm done of course so you'll see how I did it.

Sleep I cant see Pat letting me sleep!haha She is so full of ideas and curiosity!

I can see with the jointing its good if you can get the poses just so and still look goods . its a great accomplishment. There are so many BJD bodies that what to do if not improve on whats already there.

That sounds like a neat method!
