I live in Kyiv, Ukraine.
Art was my hobby since childhood, and I tried various forms of it, so I have rather wide than deep skills.
I chose BJD dollmaking as a synthetic form of art where I can express myself and put my capabilities to a good use. Occasionally I do other projects but most of my time I dedicate to a doll-related stuff.
I'm a self-taught person: all I know came out of trial and error and from different open sources like books and especially from the net. Never had any classes or private lessons, except a very basic ones when I was a child.
I love to spread the knowledge further adding my own hints and tips, so you can find a plenty of tutorials here: scargeear.deviantart.com/galle….

Thank you so much! Actually it's not that much, as I have a lot of much more labor intensive outfits in my portfolio. It took me 4 full working days to make the outfit + about 1 working day to make the crossbow (not including research and drawing patterns for plywood cutting). Please note that I'm a full time crafter so I count my time in full working days.
And, of course, good knowledge of period costumes helped me greatly in this task, so I knew what to do and didn't spend much time on designing the costume.
