1:12 Cookies, and a dollmeet ^ ^
So. i was nearly late for a get-together cos i was busy going blind and developing RSI on my right wrist from putting the microbeads on them. in case you're wondering, that's not a huge dime, those grid lines represent 1mm squares. which means the microbeads are barely 1mm wide.
Nyann and i came across a cookbook whilst out shopping last week, and she went on to find the website (i'd forgotten the name by the time i got home, frankly i don't think i even remembered to look for the author's name). the bug would not leave my brain and i finally got some time to make these. to see the original beauuutiful cookies, you can view Julia Usher's site here:
it's probably clear to some that these are Nyann's, Asuka's and my take on the swan cream puff XD we had taken this project on as a challenge, and also to see how differently we could do the same item.
even their BUTTS look different! LMAO!
yea. mine are the anaemic looking ones XD i used ADC for this challenge, and was not comfortable nor confident of colouring the puffs. but that's changed somewhat, my new puffs will be slightly more 'cooked' looking ahahaha.
i'm happy to see that my own style is beginning to emerge. i think. ;P
Nyann recently got her 1:4 ball-jointed doll! this is Julia...isn't she pretty? behind her is Cindy H's Asya ^ ^ i borrowed Julia's hand to see how the swan puff worked out size-wise, i think it's pretty good at this size. would make for a small 1:3 though. but that's alright too, foods come in various sizes anyway :D
Asuka's waiting for hers, so meanwhile, Kiki is keeping her doll's hat warm. XD
a closer look at Asya! that robot pendant is making me go NGHGHGHGHHGHGHG inside AUGHH!!! it has moveable joints! yea i know, i tend to fixate over details rather than the dolls themselves XD
'twas a fun meet! had lots of laughs and we were pretty noisy (as always, should have heard us Nyann-ing loudly in the middle of Daiso, Cindy H probably rolled her eye sockets sore HAHA ) am looking forward to more!!!
(but never going back to that meeting spot, beautiful ambience, but the icecream tasted dodgy, i highlighted it to our server and we got our drinks exchanged, but the food was a tad overpriced for the quality and portions too. too bad, the lighting was pretty nice, just that i take crappy photos hehehe)
am also in the midst of moving my blog back to blogspot's server since blogger is removing ftp publishing from 1st may 2010....i hope none of my posts/pics go missing :(
