D: I got a mailer from IpleHouse for their new Elemental Guardian, YID Bianca. She is a lovely doll with an AWESOME HAWT CYBORG BODY. But she comes with this K-Drama SF-ish backstory that... well, I think someone obviously tried their best on it, I think, but it completely ruins her forever for me. I would never be able to look at her without thinking of that horrible backstory and cringing.

It was the same way with Ringdoll's Norman. A perfectly handsome boy until you read his official backstory from the company and o_O DO NOT LET HIM NEAR MY KIDS.

I'm so glad Isar didn't come with any backstory other than "Elemental Guardian of Fire" so that I had absolutely no problems making her into Zelda. :x

Today I learned a valuable lesson in how to not be afraid of unfamiliar art supplies^_^ I also learned that sometimes that fear is justified, but you just have to keep trying again because eventually you'll succeed. Kind of like playing Legend of Zelda, actually.

Zelda's new ears! )

Apoxie Sculpt is without a doubt the hardest thing I have worked with (well, short of whittling). It comes out kind of... greyish (shoulda splurged for the SuperWhite) and takes acrylic color very very reluctantly while it's workable. And to add extra fun and excitement, there's a working time limit of about half an hour once the two parts are mixed together!=.=;

the stuff in question )

Also, adding color turns its texture from clay to... cookie dough, although from how some people were describing it I was sort of expecting cake batterXD Which sent me into PANIC MODE at first, but then I remembered that if I let it sit for a while it sort of calms down. However, TIME IS NOT SOMETHING YOU HAVE A LOT OF WHEN WORKING WITH EPOXY.=.=;

actually, when I don't color it, it's pretty nice to work with. sort of like a polymer clay texture. it smooths with water so I can get rid of fingerprints easily (a cotton bud dipped in water works nicely). It sets up opaque and plasticky, which I do not like. but it can be sanded.

So I'm going to leave the ears to cure overnight and tomorrow I will attempt to sand and paint them. I hope the points don't just fall off=.=; actually because I have to work quickly with the apoxie it doesn't take that long if I have to redo it (this is actually my THIRD attempt), butafahskasjlklfGAH.DX
