After 5 months of waiting, I finally have my Doll Chateau Douglas and Russell (ordered with my tax refund back in February)—my first Doll Chateau dolls (and my first Chinese dolls). I ordered direct; they were very pleasant and great to work with.

I love the dolls! I still need to figure out names for them and decide how I want to paint Russell.

I got Douglas full set with a faceup and body blushing. I was a bit apprehensive about what the faceup would look like, but I love it! I’m very fond of the blue they added around his eyes. I love his long body with all those crazy joints! His feather wig is adorable (need to velcro it to his head though—slips around too easily), as is his swan-goose butt.

And that sugarbush Russell is adorable! He’s a lot more posable than I imagined he’d be, and he’s super precious.

I’ll take better pics over the weekend when I have better lighting. Yay, new dollies!

Me trying to look more boyish. I need to dye my hair again one of these days.

I love my new glasses!

Here, have more of my dorky face. Most importantly, purple hair. How did I ever go so long without it? I’m lucky my work lets me color it.

Taken a few weeks ago. I need to dye my hair again (it’s all green in the front now, not so vibrant and peacocky). Was thinking about just doing the black box dye I have till I get my hair cut, but I’m way too connected to the purple—it’s one thing that makes me feel a bit better about myself. I don’t think black would do much to help me right now. So gotta keep it purple!

Noah and I repainted some Monster High dolls today. Noah painted the purple-skinned one, and it’s awesome. The pink-haired one is the first one I painted. The purple-haired one is the one I painted today. My second “face-up” ever. I like how this one turned out better than that first one. I still have lots of improving though.

Noah gave God a new faceup, and it’s just stunning, isn’t it? He’s so photogenic.

Did my first face-up ever today! I repainted one of Noah's Monster High dolls that he originally bought to repaint.

She’s got a wonky eye, but other than that, I’m pretty pleased for it being my first face-up.

I blushed her wings too. :D

Miranda gave us a Striker Eureka figure for Christmas, and it’s awesome. <3
