| F. A. Q
You know, being Romanian sucks! Not only do we have the political, social and financial aspects screwed over, not only do people like me have nowhere to get a decent job, because heck, it's a crisis in jobs! No, it's not. Firms are just asses and keep people with 30 + years of working on pay roll in the detriment of youths. Not only do we get the equivalent of 230 euro per MONTH, not week, and that's barely enough to pay any bills and get food for the rest of the month, if you're lucky, but the idea that you can have other occupations aside from work and family is virtually nonexistent.
I, for one, can't see how people are content with this survivalist sort of lifestyle. I couldn't possibly live life without having the sense that I've done something worth while, created something for people to see. Because if you think about it without this sense of creation, we're just forgotten people after a few decades after we're gone and I don't want that
Fine, I am being a bit negative on this whole subject. Can you tell I'm frustrated? Yeah? Sorry.
It's just depressing to see the prices on the Internet for large ball jointed dolls, which range from 400 to 800 + dollars, and think that with the money made in this country you can hardly afford to buy a new computer because the old one is REALLY OLD (as in 2004 old), let alone hobbyist things which people from other countries have in bulk and spend money on them like they're clothes.
I see these people on DA photographing their dolls and displaying them for everyone to view and I just die a bit inside, because I know that with the pay in my country I could never afford such a doll.
That is why I decided, as soon as the idea got stuck in my mind, that I was to create my very own ball jointed doll
YOU HEARD ME! In a way, it would cost less than to order a doll all tha way from freaking Japan and with my experience in clay modeling, crafting the body parts in paper paste will be pretty easy. The painting of the parts and the hair will pose a challenge, :/
I already set an order for a paper paste pack of 5 kgs, to have reserves in case I need to make adjustments and I collected over 4 months I worked at the fashion house I'm technical assistant at least 40 different pieces of cloth, mostly satin, spangle materials and spandex of almost any colour imaginable. My intent for them was to make rudimentary toy doll clothing, but I instantly shifted my perspectives when thinking about the ball jointed doll.
I've gotten myself tutorials on how to make a doll, how to wire one, how to make eyes and wigs and paint the faces and had an entire of bookmarks, but my sister, the ever dumbass, changed Opera to the newest version and all of them are completely gone. GAAAAHHHH! Ah, fucking fuck!
Well, anyways, I made a few drawings for how the doll would look like and I took as reference, take a wild guess.... Dhonia, my novel character. That's so unexpected!
But in all honesty, the first large 65-70 cm doll I am going to make will be of Dhonia Darick and she will have her features, hopefully: rose lips, big blue eyes, a pretty cute face, medium sized breasts and large hips, just like I described her in the novel and illustrated her oh, so many times in the past. The sketches for the doll I'll upload in a compilation on Madda-Sketches
and will commence making a blueprint for the doll once I get the package of 5 kgs.
I hope it works, because I really, really want my very own Dhonia to cuddle. ^___________^ and maybe a Brunar as well, who knows.
WISH ME LUCK!
