Just two more weeks until winter break at my school~! I'll be taking the train home at like 1 AM, but I'll just sleep the whole way, I guess. Maybe I need to get some of those ridiculous little eye-covers.
I went to Atlanta Varsity Showdown, a swing dancing thing, for a weekend, and that was very cool! That was actually from before my last post, but plenty of things have happened in between everything... I just need to update more often. ^_^; Anyways, lots of fun! This picture was, in particular, from the preliminaries for the Jack and Jill contest, just a random partner dancing competition. I learned a lot from it, like Lindy Hop (and where the name comes from) and the shim sham, which is very helpful. I'm addicted to swing music now, especially Ella Fitzgerald. Does anyone know a song that's all about food, sung by a man, where he just talks about "fancy foods that cost so much, rattlesnake and such," and other lines like that? I can't find it! x.x
I've started trying for the second time to make my own ball-joint doll, but I haven't gotten much further than this. I got a really light-weight clay to try to sculpt the primary model. Ideally, I would have carved it out of foam, but... limited resources where I am. Luckily, my lovely mans brought me a large piece of styrofoam when he came to visit, it's just not necessarily the best kind. ^_^; I'm hoping to get some La Doll clay for Christmas or something so that I can cover up this primary sculpture with something more sturdy and generally better, and then I can string it up with elastic, get some eyes in there, make a wig... we'll see how things go. ^_^ I reeeeally want a lot
of the dolls from Blue Fairy, like the Olivia dolls... If only I had money.
This first picture on the left was my costume for the masquerade for Halloween. I was saying I was a pink fairy, but my wings are all the way back at home, so I couldn't complete it. x.x On the actual day of Halloween, I was tired, so I wore the outfit on the right to swing club, and Alex, the vice president, complimented me on it! He's very charismatic and friendly. You can't see the brown socks or mary-janes, but the skirt is handmade by me and the dress was on sale at Charlotte Russe, or however you spell that. ^_^;
Well, I updated my etsy, just by renewing the old orders. I finally sold something~~ But not on the website. ^_^; I sold the kitty skirt. I must have mentioned this in the last post, because in it, you can see the buyer wearing her skirt. I am excited~ Also, I finally got to start watching the Korean TV drama, My Name is Kim Sam-Soon, because a girl on my hall has the boxed set! It's been fun so far! Whenever I see the cakes and sweets, I want them so badly... That's how it always is, isn't it? ^_^; Well, I'll update more later! I'll try to make this more regular again. I'm looking forward to my new 2D Design project, since it's nearly 4 feet tall! Exciting!Check out my etsy site here: http://santaluchia.etsy.comAnd my deviantART here: http://keropi.deviantart.com
