Neverending Projects.

I have to learn to pace myself, or I'm going to do myself some damage one of these days.

The Chiika is all done and boiled. I just have to wait until her hair dries before I can unbraid her curls and reveal her to the world. So far it looks like she turned out pretty well. Much better now that you can see her expressive eyebrows! With those thick pink bangs her eyes looked like swirly bulls-eyes....she looked like @_@.

I already have another project lined up for myself. I'm forcing myself to take a few nights off so I don't give myself tendinitis. For this new project, I'm going to have to figure out how to do a topknot like that black-haired Totoco Hakama Aya has. Actually, I'll be rerooting a Limited Edition Aya with silver hair and the same hairstyle, so she'll look like a color variant of that doll.

I've always liked that Aya's dark gray eyes, but her straight, dark brown hair is rooted so thinly that if the wind changes direction, she has bald spots. Good Ayas are hard to come by. When I find them I treasure them above all my Jenny dolls. I've never done a topknot before, but at least I have a good model to work from. I hope I don't screw it up. ::cries::

Cranberry is such a neat blended color--you can't tell at all what it looks like from the stock picture. Who'd have thought that mixing wine red and hot pink would look so good? It actually looks like a cranberry.

I was a little concerned by the fact that I rerooted a Chiika to look basically like the way my boil-permed Princess Aika looked before you ripped her hair out.

I think Chiika has a better face for it, though.

Aika also had purple eyes to go with her wine-red hair. Not the best combination.

Remember how nice Aika looked when Omoiataru repainted her with blue eyes? Wine-red looks good with some eye colors, just not Aika's default eyes.
