Oh they both gorgeous!
I bring a rarely seen guy of mine
@Roterwolkenvogel - He looks amazing! What a great photo!
I bought a JID Tania second hand and she is lovely. I'm kind of relieved to find out that other people have trouble finding nice clothing for them, too. Unfortunately I'm having a really hard time with her body. Restringing didn't help and after 2 weeks of trying out how to get along with it I have decided to make her a hybrid and change her body though I really like the sculpt. And until it arrives I'm spending time with sewing clothes for my KID .
@Roterwolkenvogel - Ooh he's gorgeous!
@Duckherd They are gorgeous! I love how they are styled. I just love seeing the different looks everyone gives their dolls, too.
@Roterwolkenvogel Your Asa guy is beautiful as always. That sculpt looks fantastic on the male body.
My Violet finally arrived! She has no clothes or wig (or even faceup) of her own, but she's fitting in well with my two bigger dolls. (Pardon the less than stellar picture!)

Thank you guys for your kind words to Akira
@AntarelNefertili Pazuzu tips her hat to her sculpt sister! Congrats on her
Pazuzu is absolutely gorgeous
I finally finished reworking an old Victorian dress for Isis...
@Roterwolkenvogel Awwwww, Kokiden says hi to Pazuzu as well! Your Violet is really lovely.
@MB Lilac That's an awesome dress! If you don't mind me asking, did you use ribbon or some sort of bias tape for the filigree-esque design on her front?
On a general note, I promised that I'd post this as soon as my Violet came home. Here's how 10mm SOULinaBOX urethane eyes ("Liberte" color) look on her sculpt. The irises are still a little big for my taste, but it's good enough because the character is still a child. Color is a bit desaturated compared to the shop photos, but the depth and texture is phenomenal.

@AntarelNefertili - the design on her front and all the black lines on her jacket are a very narrow soutache braid intended for miniatures. The narrow black lines on her skirt pleating is ribbon.
@Roterwolkenvogel - I do love how elegant and intimidating Pazuzu is. She's wonderful!
@MB Lilac - Those pleats must have taken you forever! The dress looks simply amazing.
Probably. I made the original doll dress decades ago, and was thankful I only had to rework the waistband on the skirt, and remake the jacket from the bit of fabric I still had. Now I need to make her a wig in the proper style. I just used an old mohair wig and tied it up a little...
How gorgeous she is! How long it takes you to finish all the items? It's so perfect!
Probably a week or two. It's hard to say since I just remade an existing dress, so all those pleats were already done. But I'm going to make two matching little girl's dresses, and those will be from scratch, so that will give a better idea for time.
You are so talented! I really like this kind of style as my girl also wearing like that! Looking forward to seeing more photos of you!
Pazuzu and Isis are stunning! I'll need to post some picture of my Tania once I get fresh eye putty.
if by 'get eye putty' you mean you ordered online... silly move... go to any stationary or office supply store (even bigger Walmarts have it). buy 'sticky tac' or by other names... blue tack, poster putty, putty photo mount... or even silicon ear plugs from a drugstore. No need to wait lol
There's preview info of a new JID girl and body coming - Faline - on the "Iple BJD" page
