sidroq answered: It is, and I did! It’s a very sandboxy game. Lots of building and growing. I like it a lot. I treat it as Animal Crossing with swords!

wow that sounds pretty good, i was looking it up and in game art style turned me bit down but this info sparks up my interest :D

(This is sidroq, I just wanted to say too much to actually use the reply function)

The art is generic grindy-Korean-mmo stuff, but the environments are pretty and the game play was really fun. I think it’s going to be an ideal place to roleplay and relax/garden/build.

It took me half an hour to do this shaky-ass eyeliner. Kill me

Someone needs to open a doll karate club where they can put them kicky legs and karate chops to good use. Maybe it could also help the wobbly dolls to get more confidence and stand up straight for once too!

a night with sidroq: obsessing over dolls i won’t buy for a year

After deriving equations for my electricity and magnetism class for a few hours, I decided to RELAX by making extremely convoluted doll plans.

As usual, the more a project idea grows, the more expectations I throw onto it until it’s nigh-on impossible, and then I have to do ridiculous things to…

Yesterday I went scrounging for heads that could make good snobbish looking elves for my first D&D character Miselia and still fit on the Magical Angel female body I like (was debating the Mirodoll 4piece but that’s pending some investigation into whether or not they are being dicks), so I know this feeling, cos she’s not even on my list for this year at all. Wanna get Elu ordered around Crimmas, then I will probably ease off a while since I need an apartment…

I really feel you on this. I got screwed over by my school and want to rebuild some of my savings before I start working on this doll…but that doesn’t mean I can’t make a ton of plans that will probably not work out.

Are Mirodoll being dicks now? That’s horrible news.

I’m gonna get the email proof from my friend before I make a posting, but look at the XM dolls and then look at Magical Angel dolls. Not all of them, but some of them are MA being resold and the contract was not supposed to allow them being sold at a lower price. She has proof in an email from Magical Angel.

That’s concerning. It’s unfortunate how designs get hijacked, even within the world of legit doll companies, because this is a small hobby. I’m glad that we have enough ethical people in the community to catch these things and call them out with proof.

…on a total side note, we need more lower-cost options for 16cm bodies. I mean, we’re getting more…but we need even more and more and more so I can buy them all.

a night with sidroq: the room box rumba

me: haha, no, that's a crazy thought
me: i couldn't make a room box for egon and anora
me: i mean, that's not even a 1/3 scale
me: assuming egon's 6' tall that's like ....1/2.54
me: i can't waste a third of a room--
me: wait, volume
me: that's only like 1/16th of a room
me: and really, what's the point of all that child labor working for my dad the contractor if i'm not going to build something with that latent skill
me: yeah and he'd probably give me scrap wood
me: yeah
me: yeah
me: i'm going to build a room box

I’m very picky about the dolls I BUY but I love to SEE a lot of different kinds and what their owners do with them. I think it keeps the hobby diverse and much more friendly when we can appreciate something we wouldn’t necessarily like for ourselves. I think if you just focus so closely on only the type you like best, you miss some interesting and creative things.

You can make beautiful legit colored bjds too. Seriously. They can look like works of art too. No they don’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Yes you might have to do more research and put some work in! That’s what’s fun to me about this hobby. Not once did I ever think “I want a…

This totally has happened to me and not even with a painted doll. A couple of people sent me messages accusing my new PKF Pio of being a recast because I coordinated her clothes to reflect a greenish tint on her white resin, and dressed my Zoe in reds and pinks to contrast. “Blue recast! Omg!!!!!!!”

She has the company faceup, so…nice try, people who sent me messages. Nice try.

a night with sidroq: obsessing over dolls i won’t buy for a year

After deriving equations for my electricity and magnetism class for a few hours, I decided to RELAX by making extremely convoluted doll plans.

As usual, the more a project idea grows, the more expectations I throw onto it until it’s nigh-on impossible, and then I have to do ridiculous things to make it happen. This is true at school as much as for dolls, but let’s focus on the dolls right now.

After a lot of hemming and hawing about what exactly my 16cm Draenei should look like, I’m liking the idea of giving her a very alien face. Great, lmao, no one makes alien faces in that size.

Doll Chateau comes close with a head I love. Their Hilary head is just a bit too big—a hair over 6” in circumference. Lati Yellows are bobble-headed, but this might be TOO bobble-headed.

The eye-chin spacing and eye-eye spacing aren’t too bad. They’re a little off, but it’s supposed to look alien. And on the bright side, she should look taller than my other tinies…

Neck size is a problem. The DC neck is smaller than the Lati neck by quite a bit, but I should be able to change that. My Dremel and I are on great terms.

So let’s tally up the STUPID THINGS on the roster for this project so far:

  1. Obtain Lati body. Possibly barter organs for this
  2. Fail to obtain Lati body. Get Tiny Delf body instead.
  3. Get DC head that doesn’t fit and looks wrong
  4. Commission someone awesome to make variegated horns and plain colored tail
  5. Find ideal wig. Thank fuck I have the eyes already
  6. Find perfect fantasy faceup artist; make appointment
  7. Try to change neck size. Accidentally Dremel hand
  8. Time to modify knees. Accidentally Dremel the other hand
  9. Get CAT scan. Not for the Dremel injury, they just think I might have brain damage
  10. Nah this is just my personality lmao
  11. Add forehead ridges to DC head.
  12. Mix 800 paints to obtain exactly the blue I want
  13. Prime, airbrush, and seal head, body, hooves, and tail. Cry a little because the hooves have lovely airbrushing already, but they don’t match this character.
  14. Send doll to artist for faceup and blushing.
  15. Make her outfit (using PKF body as model) while she’s away.

…nah. Too bobble-headed

what about a Muslim Ashlynn?

since there is a Indonesian/Malaysian variant of Cinderella, and both those countries are Muslim-majority nations. 

Also super cute :3
