Coco Seong ~ Character Info

Hello there! I know, Coco had the 10 facts done like... 3 times, if I remember correctly, but with fixing the story and wanting to fix the profiles, I said: why not make her a good Character Info page just like I did with Venezia? Also, it helps me organize my ideas while writing the stories.

Anyways, I do hope this is the definitive profile info for her, although I cannot guarantee that I won't end up hating the photos or anything else from here to some years/months xD

Polishing ~ Photostory

Well, to be honest, I have had the idea for this photostory in mind for so long! But it wasn't until I got the diorama that I thought it was a good idea to shoot it... I'm having some issues with the diorama, as I think it needs more clutter? Sometimes it looks too empty, but if I pose my dolls wrong and they fall, then OMG everything falls!

So, oh well... I tried my best with this. But! I'm really happy with their outfits. I attempted something more challenging and I really love the result. The neckline is made in crochet (thanks mom!) and the tiny fasteners even have golden snaps! Also, I used one of the fabrics my hubby bought them, and I love how green looks on Merry :3

Anyways, here comes the story!

Lonely Birthday ~ Story Time

May 9th is Coco's birthday, and I sincerely can't believe she had been with me for four years already! Time flies! My tradition was to make a new dress for her each year, but... this time I have something different to share. I'm really hooked up on writing the story and sharing it in my blog, so I thought it was a great opportunity to show more of Coco's character.

I haven't shared much of her character before, and I'm really loving discovering this part of the hobby. Also, I think I can improve my English a lot with this, as I practice on writing something not as formal as I do at the office.

Anyways, here you have a photo as intro, and the story is under the cut!

Tuxedo Dress

Hello there! Today is not a great post, but I wanted to share some things and ideas regarding the tuxedo dress I made for Venezia on the previous photostory. My main goal was to also link this post to my sewing portfolio, as I hope to be doing commissions again soon.

Anyways, Venezia's dress is inspired on the tuxedo dress from L'Wren Scott Fashion Show from 2009 (second photo, here). It took me a little to make, as I've been doing a lot of extra hours at work, but I very much love the shape, and I think the fit is nice! However, I think it is not best shape for Venzia's big breast... maybe something with more cleavage and more colorful would look a thousand times better.

Here is a photo and more sewing-ranting under the cut.
