Customs / Re: dxgirly's Pullip faceup thread
« on: Today at 03:48:22 PM »
I'm working on my 5th MIO. She's my last natural Pullip kit, and I had done a faceup on her the same time I did Chanelle's, but I hated how it came out, and decided to wipe it. It's too humid to spray today, but seeing the remnants of her lip blushing in the cracks I couldn't reach with the sandpaper was driving me nuts, so I decided to work on her lips for now, and just put it somewhere safe until I can seal it.

I'm going for a nice full lip, with more definition than my previous faceups. I think they came out nice. I might add some creases in her lower lip with watercolor pencils after I seal it. We'll see.

What do you guys think? (I could use some encouragement  ^^; )

I know it's a bit different than the other things mentioned in this thread, but the original did come out in 1997... I'm eagerly awaiting the Final Fantasy VII Remake. I love everything I've seen of it so far, and I cannot wait to play the first game in it. Hopefully it won't be too much longer.
I think the Final Fantasy VII remake was the beginning of the hype train for me, lol.  My sister is afraid it's not going to work, but Square puts a lot of heart into anything Final Fantasy VII, especially when it comes to pleasing fans.  I need to get a PS4 before it comes out, but the Switch has my attention right now.

I think people expecting it to be just like the original will be disappointed by it, but from everything we've seen and learned about it, (which at this point honestly isn't too much) I really think I'm going to enjoy it. I mean I still get goosebumps watching the E3 2015 reveal trailer, to this day. :lol:

It will be, in the very least, something to drool over graphically. XD

I ordered the PS4 camera 2.0 and a little mount clip from ebay, so I can use it with my tripod.

Ordered two more outfits from itsMYcaprice. The second one includes the hat and stockings, as well as the dress.

I was telling my husband last night that if they ever made Final Fantasy Pullip dolls, I would buy all of them. Not just one of each, but ALL of them. Like oodles and oodles of duplicates.  :haha: XD

It would be like the marriage of two of my most favorite things in the world. :lol:

Yeah....my Lemongrass is currently going comando under that dress I made her. I really need to make that girl some panties. :|

Bought some fabric for more Pullip doll clothes and some yarn to knit a doll hat. Lemongrass is about to be soiled.


Ooooh! Be sure to share your creations in the Pullip thread! I'd love to see them.

That's exactly how I was feeling about it Melissa. It sucks when you have a doll completely done up with a nice outfit, faceup, hair, etc, and then she has bare feet. It feels unfinished, and it drives me nuts!

I also need to buy some Pullip underwear, because Angie from Omocha Crush's mother has instilled it in my head that my dolls need panties, too. :lol:

I wish I knew how to sew.  :cry:

I ordered two dresses from itsMYcaprice, 4 pairs of stockings from thedaughterwhosews, 2 pairs of boots and 2 pairs of shoes from HelloCoolCat, and a pair of shoes from SKDollhouse.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Cute dresses! Do you have pics of the shoes/boots to share?

I can link you! Shoes are my least favorite things to buy for my Pullips, because I have a hard time finding styles that I like, and they're just so expensive for the tiny little things that they are... but I was sick of looking at all of my MIO girls with bare feet, so...

I got these in pink and sky blue:

I forgot I made this thread! lol. I completed my 4th faceup yesterday. I definitely think she's the best one I've done so far. Everyone was right, the mocha MIO's are much, MUCH more forgiving towards beginners. I was also working on a Natural Pullip yesterday, but she came out awful, (even by my own standards) so I ended up sanding her faceup off. I'll probably go back and try again with her sometime this week. I need to check what the humidity levels are going to be each day...

But anyways, here's #4, Chanelle:

Thank you, neon_jellyfish and DogMom!! :hug:


I did a faceup and put together a Mocha MIO yesterday, and I'm absolutely LIVING for her. She is so nice to photograph.

Everyone, meet Chanelle. <3

I'm so torn. I've been waiting ages for Persona 5, and had planned to buy it next week and start streaming it on my gaming channel. I read a statement from Atlus today, though, that they're not allowing people to stream the game, supposedly because they don't want the story spoiled for other people. So they've openly come out and said that you can't stream the story scenes in the game, or at all past a certain point, or they will hit you with copyright strike, and even try to take down your channel. This is complete bull. They are doing this for money and nothing else. Someone is more likely to get the game accidentally spoiled for them in the comments of that post on Facebook, than they would be during a stream on Facebook or Twitch. When people click on "let's plays" on those sites, they know full-well games will be spoiled for them. People don't just accidentally start watching those. Atlus is pretending to white-knight this, when all it is, is a cover for their greed.

So again, I am torn. Do I still buy this next week for the full $60 and play the game I've been waiting for for years? Or do I wait until the game goes on sale in protest of them doing this?

Either way, I can't stream it out now. This all has left a really sour taste in my mouth, but I still really want to play it, especially with all the reviews saying how fantastic it is...  :(
