Not to mention I wanted to get that negative journal off my profile page.
How is everyone? 8D I'm doing alright. Work is work. Dollwise, I've been getting ready for ManikaManila Tiangge, my local doll community's annual BJD bazaar. There's much to be done so I hope it all goes smoothly!
Anyway, I know I promised a Dollism report. I don't think I've ever done one here. It's usually on my LJ and Facebook accounts.
So here I go!
We lived along Tung Choi street in the heart of Mong Kok. My friends and I usually go for an apartment rather than a hotel, to cut costs and to experience life as a local.
Not to mention it is tons of fun living with your friends for almost a week! We arrived on Thursday, July 11th. We mostly roamed around Mong Kok that day.
Tung Choi is right beside Sai Yeung Choi St. which is home to several doll
All Snapped Up .15 ~ SoftPoison~ An interview of a talented artist in our General Photography CommunityAll Snapped Up .15 ~ SoftPoison2 years ago in Art Features More Like This
Tell us a bit about yourself, SoftPoison! How did you get into photography and why?
Well, Hi I’m Desiree and I’m from the Netherlands. I started photography thanks to my hobby. My hobby is customizing Ball jointed dolls. I saw these very talented people making great pictures of these dolls so I wanted such a doll and later I bought a camera. My first camera was a compact camera. It made great pictures but my love for photography grew.
I wanted something more so I bought my Canon and It was love at first sight. I started to photograph everything. From rocks to beautiful skies. Now my camera is one of my best friends hahaha
Why are you on deviantART?
When I was younger I always looked at Deviantart to get some inspiration for my drawings. I saw an awesome illustrator and I wanted to be his friend so I made my

Just for Fun!Hello guys and girls!Just for Fun!2 years ago in Personal More Like This
Quite awhile back, I was going through a break up, and I came up with this: http://yuki-arisu.deviantart.com/journal/Just-A-Random-Fun-Idea-322851008
So I thought why not do it again just to describe my life lately!
So sometimes last year, I thought I found the love of my life. ^_^
Of course, until reality slapped me in the face (again).
So of course I was sad and ended up suffering for a period of time.
Seriously, it was horrible.
At times, I would still feel lonely, especially during the holidays season.
So I thought maybe going shopping would cheer myself up, but then...
Then my friends suggested to
Spite Malice doll wigs arrived(It's Spite & Malice but dA title doesn't allow me to use & !)Spite Malice doll wigs arrived1 year ago in Personal More Like This
You may remember that I asked ppl to recommend good fur wig makers weeks ago because I had quite bad luck previously.. (the wig I ordered from a different shop arrived and it wasn't something I asked for..)
BUT yes, I ordered wigs from Spite & Malice because she was very recommended wig maker
I can't even describe how incredibly beautiful wigs I got yesterday so I even wanted to make a small review with Shagrilah and Rony! XD Or it seems they wanted and I just watched..
"BA DE DA BA DI DA BA~~ "
"I KNOW but this is not mine...."
(Blue one is for Brenda, a character which currently is Iplehouse Zera on EID body, some day 8D)
This is the design I sent to her (yes, not very well made drawing lol I wasn't at home and I had only few pencils with me at our summer place weeks ago)
I asked for two blue colors mixed though, hard to see xD
And this is what I got
Looks SO GOOD, better than I even tried to draw

I really want to get something off my chest....
Just a fue seconds ago I looked at some of the deviants of the people I watch and something caught my eye.
You guys really make some amazing work.
They're alot of people who I respect so much in the doll community. I just love their work and their skills to personalize a doll to almost a living human, but then I looked at their favourites and I'm like.. How can this be.. Such amazing work and that amount of favourites and views.. and then I look at my own work and I see my amount of favs and that isn't really fair.. You know what I mean?
Ofcourse I like my work, but I see sooo much dollpics who are waaaaaaayy better than mine. I know most people don't upload pics here on DA for the favs, just to show their work, but some favs gives you the feeling that peope respect your work. And everybody needs some love and re
Just A Random Fun IdeaI can't believe how you guys have been so kind to me lately because of the little issue I'm having. And also, I noticed that many people have also been heart broken. So I thought why not just all get together and have some fun! I found some funny internet meme and I'll put it together to explain our unfortunate love life.Just A Random Fun Idea3 years ago in Personal More Like This
So this was me a few days ago until reality slapped my face!
And then to overcome my sadness, I started doing awkward stuff.
But you know, this was someone I once cared for. So I can't help but text him sometimes, but NO, I can't do that! I'll only text him if I have something very very important to say.
Then I started getting a little insecure.
And when I think about how I wasted time on that bastard, and realized the problem is not because of me.

I have now opened a group dedicated only to doll competitions and also a website (YES! I luv the websites XD) and I really really want people to get involved and get others involved. I'm not going to type all the rules here again, so please please visit the group page and the website (cos it's prettier) and read how you can enter your characters.

How to Create Photostories, Part TwoCommunity WeekHow to Create Photostories, Part Two5 months ago in Deviant Events More Like This
Photostories, for those who don’t know, are essentially comics put together with photos as opposed to drawings. They can be as simple as a few frames making up a one-two-punch joke, or as complicated as several installments of a series. For mine, I use Asian Ball-Jointed Dolls (BJDs for short) to represent my characters, but you can use whatever suits your fancy and your vision. This is the second and final part to the series and you can find the first here -> How to Create Photostories, Part 1
Now we’re finally getting a bit more technical! Now that you know who your characters are, you get to decide what happens to them and what they do about it! Yay! I usually start with a very vague idea, honestly, when crafting my photostories. They’re just for fun and don’t follow large-scale story arcs. When I sit down

And onto the subject...
Besides, just to make everyone aware as much as possible about SOPA and PIPA which today is the Internet's protest against the censorship which USA government decided to take the control on our freedom. Pretty much you can read here (click Learn More on wikipedia):
Action on google: https://www.google.com/landing/takeaction/
And of course you can debate on deviantART or at least read what others think, hopefully there will be an interesting final conclusion: http://hq.deviantart.com/journal/Join-a-SOPA-and-PIPA-debate-280023798?utm_source=deviantart&utm_medium=header&utm_campaignebateSOPA_011712
I'm not an Internet person but it definitely shows a very sad censorship with the freedom in general meaning, which it doesn't mean about internet itself- but something what is put against the people's freedom. It could work the same way in the real world, not virtual.

BJD Doll FAQBJD Doll FAQ4 years ago in Personal More Like This
Please read this if you are interested to learn more about the dolls I photograph. I dont have time to keep answering the same questions over and over again >_< I will be updating this journal entry as time goes on. Feel free to add a question in the comments section and I will try to answer it.
❤ BASICS ❤
What are these dolls?
They are BJD - ball jointed dolls. If you search Google with those keywords you will get plenty of results with companies and other info about them. This is the Wikipedia article http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ball-jointed_doll. Also this LJ answers some questions too http://bjd-wtf.livejournal.com/ . If you want to learn more, I would suggest Den of Angels forum (http://www.denofangels.com/forums/).
Do you make them?
No I don't make the actual doll, I don't sculpt it. I am a customizer, I paint their faceups. I am basically a makeup artist for resin dolls. You can find the link to my commission shop
Doll changes: company's version vs mine, Part 1.I have seen ppl doing this nice meme but I don't have skills to do such fancy collages ... but I got curious to see my dolls next to company ver.Doll changes: company's version vs mine, Part 1.5 months ago in Personal More Like This
Therefore, I make simple journal entries where I collect company photos and my photos together, mostly for myself (because this makes me happy!) and also for you, because I think it's very interesting to see how different a certain doll can be! Sometimes they can look very similar if I fell in love with a fullset (a doll styled by the company itself).
There are also links to a company websites if you aren't familiar with companies or bjds (ball jointed dolls in general). They are meant to be customized as you like (wigs, eyes, faceups (make up), clothes, tattoos, piercings, scars, etc....) but you can also buy a fullset which means that the company has already customized the doll for you and you can include almost everything (also faceup) to your purchase if you want to.
I start with few of my dolls.

The dreads I made are
- Only extensions, I unfortunately can't make whole wigs.

- Since they are extensions they are removable.
- Suitable under fur, mohair and synthetic wigs.
- Made of wool.
- Attached/sewn to an elastic band. You have to put this around the head of your doll, then put the wig on top. Make sure the wig you have has a bit of room for the dreads to go under it. :3
-Or loose if chosen. This way you can place them any way you'd like :3
- Loose dreads: (You will have to add them to your wig yourself) If you choose this
