Blythecon came and went

We had a great time in Portland and Blythecon was such a wonderful experience. A room full of people who know what I am talking about when I say EBL, Reroot, Pure Neemo, and Boggled? What more could a girl ask for! :)

I was so busy the whole time that I didn't get a chance to take as many pictures as I would have liked. I also didn't get to see half of the room! So I know that there were a lot of people that I didn't even get to meet. But the people that I did meet were so sweet and I really appreciated when Gina Garan came over to my table so I could say hi to her... If she hadn't done that I don't think I would have been able to see her! Thanks to everyone who stopped by my table to introduce themselves and/or purchase some of my dresses and chips! Thank you also to those of you who put a bid on my Sailor Doll, I really appreciate it. Congratulations to Karen for being the one to bring her home ♥

Overall it felt like an inspiring group of creative people. Actually it felt like a room full of friends as I already "knew" so many. It was refreshing to finally meet the human behind the dolls that I would recognize at one glance, I just loved it. And I truly appreciate all of the hard work and time that went into it. Thank you Julie, Maggie and Kyle!

I hope there will be another Blythecon soon, I will be much more prepared the next time around :)

I created this gallery from photos that other people took of my table (and dolls, etc):

Thanks for stopping by!

Bye bye, Portland!

Melacacia Custom #91 ~ Portland, little sailor girl

I created this little sailor girl for Blythecon 2011. Her name is Portland, in honor of the city in which Blythecon takes place :)


She is a full Melacacia custom doll created from an RBL mold

Sand matted
All new media applied to face
Carved mouth and nose
4 new sets of my hand painted eye chips
Sprayed sealed with MSC
Alpaca rerooted scalp (knot method)

I created her outfit and doll stand with a sailor theme in mind
The musical base plays "Beyond the Sea" when turned

I will take more photos of her at Blythecon before she finds her new mom (or dad) :)

Thank you and if you are going to be there on Monday, we are looking forward to seeing you there!!

off to pack my bags! :D

Getting ready

We fly out this weekend for Portland, so I am trying my best to get all of my inventory and everything else finished and packed up... What a crazy week it has been so far, but I am feeling pretty good about getting it all done in time :)

Looking forward to seeing everyone this weekend!!

Flickr issued me a warning!??

The dolls are scared of losing our account again, so they are in hiding....

I received a warning!

The good news is, my account wasn't deleted without warning this time. The bad news is, I did receive a warning and my account has, again, been threatened.

So I would like to make it clear, just in case it is unclear, that my Flickr account is solely for the purpose of sharing photos of things I love to create and love to look at... I am not using Flickr to sell things and I do not post links to anything that I do sell.

I am really looking forward to the day when we all move to a better site where we can post freely and not be treated like a bunch of criminals for posting pictures and sharing them!

Can't wait to meet you all!

WIP ~ Melacacia Redhead

WIP ~ Melacacia redhead

I haven't had much time to work on this girl, but she is coming together. I adopted her from Alisa a few months ago and had started on her face then... But then I had to stop to focus on Blythecon stuff.
I have two incomplete mohair rerooted scalps to decide between. I am leaning toward the brighter red scalp, but it needs a lot more work than the other one which only needs about one row....
Either way she probably won't be done in time for me to bring her Blythecon... I have just been so busy getting everything else ready that I didn't get as much done on the scalps (or her) as I had hoped, But I do like how she is turning out! yay! A redhead! :)
