I f***ing hate restringing jointed hands =.= *post of the day*


I would love to go back all the posts I missed over the weekend, but I’m way to lazy to do that :| And too tired from vacation. Orz.

Got two packages over the weekend, plus my rit dye arrived; I’m sure that the parcels are heads for face-ups… and people are bugging me already about the taobao GO xD Lemme arrive at least, lol.


Worplace picture! Well- .. .sort of. 
Cat decided my big scetches are a purrfect place to make herself comfortable.  :| Meh.

Scetching out Anjus centaur body in original scale an suddenly realized that he’s going to be… freaking huge.

What have I gotten myself into… ?


Reached 700 followers today (wheeeeee!) and while I’m utterly grateful and happy, I also have to say sorry -

To the people I still own pictures from my 300 followers giveaway. I don’t have forgotten about you! I still have the pictures you send me as bookmarks, and I hope I manage to do your pictures within the next weeks.
My… ambition to draw something is currently at a low point (can’t even get myself up to work on the lot of heads I have here, bleh x_x), but I really hope that my vacation over the coming weekend will get everything back into place :)

Sorry again!

Good job Fairyland Part 2! The whaling hook-looking device (apparently a Vertical Ascension Device, probably not unlike the hooks in Bioshock Infinite) was also stolen from a design made over 2 years ago! This one was harder to find as the artist himself did not step forward. The artist is unknown but the website makes it clear that this design was made more than 2 years ago. Please signal boost this so we can find the artist. It’s likely that the artist’s name is M. Hartley (it’s common for artists to put their name in their art in a way that works like that) but so far I’ve not found anything useful.

The artist’s name MAY be Brian Pape, however I’m not sure if this is a website like photobucket or like deviantart: http://digital-art-gallery.com/picture/11062

Good job, Fairyland! You’re totally setting a standard for your fans and fans of recasts to follow! /s

I’m running a Europe Taobao Order again!

meanae:

Deadline for sending me items you want to have is the 8th of August.

Allowed - doll wigs, clothes, shoes, eyes, small items.
Not allowed - dolls and doll parts, bigger (MSD+) doll furniture, fabric, anything thats meant for humans.

Overseas participants are allowed too of course, but shipping can be a hassle. If you only order some small items (some pairs of eyes and a wig for example) shipping will be around 5$.


How to participate?

  1. Go to taobao.com and search for items you like. *
  2. Save the item link and any options you want (like SD/MSD, colors, types..) **
  3. Send me the link and your choices. I’ll add them to my list and give you an complete estimate. ***
  4. If you are okay with the price we’ll wait till the deadline is over. As soon as I got confirmation from everyone, I’ll send the list to my agent - he will check if everything is available.
  5. If everything is alright, you send me the money via paypal. I’ll send it to my agent, he will buy everything. ****
  6. As soon as every item got to the agent, I’ll pay the remaining shipping fee. They will send everything to me.
  7. I send everything to you. Finish!

* Google Chrome has a auto translate feature. If you’re not using Chrome as a browser, just select the text, copy, and paste it into google translator ;) If you need help looking for something specific, I’ll help you out of course. Remember that the prices are in Renmibi Yuan, not Yen, even though their symbols are the same. 6RMB are ~1USD.

** Options are beside the picture of the item. Uncle stands for 70cm dolls, like Spiritdoll proud, Ringdoll grown and similar.

*** The complete estimate includes: Item price, item shipping from seller to agent (10 - 15rmb), agent fee (10%), paypal fee (4%), shipping from the agent to me (based on how much you buy) and shipping from me to you.


Send your items to me via mail (meanae-bjd@gmx.de)

Still up and accepting participants!
