Hello again, everybody! How have you all been? It's been a while since I updated my page, eons since I touched my journal. I've been spending a lot of time doing all sorts of stuff, from model painting to sculpting to shooping for the Sailor Moon manga translation group Miss Dream (you should totally go and check out the website, by the way, Elly does some awesome translations!).
I've currently got a few projects going (as usual). My Saber Lily kit that I had ordered for Christmas last year finally came in on my birthday (21!
), but I've only just gotten started on her a few weeks ago. Even in the semi-permanent drunken stupor I was trapped in (well, maybe not trapped against my will, lol) I knew I was going to have a hard time with this kit. Like, a really hard time. The instructions are pretty hard to follow, the dress pieces don't fit together too well, and I may or may not have done a whoopsie and made it impossible to fit her armored arms through the sleeves (so princess gloves it is, I guess...
). I've finally got that puttied to death with half of the parts primed and ready to be painted.
I've also decided to finish painting the plastic Gundam model I bought for
, a Gundam BB Senshi Three Kingdoms Lu-Bu Tall Geese and Red Hare. Red Hare turns into a motorcycle!
That's gone...nearly no where, lol.
I also have an SD Super Sailor Chibi-Moon who I am painting. I've got quite a bit of color on her (mainly white, pink and a black under coat for the metallic paint I will be using). I'm putting off painting her hair and back bow because they are cast in clear resin and mixing transparent paint with gloss varnish on a paper plate is a pain in the butt, but I'm also too lazy to go to the store and buy $0.99 paint trays...
Finally, I'm working on a new Pokemon sculpt! I originally intended to do them all in order...but Ivysaur was misbehaving and I don't want to deal with him when he's like this. So I pulled up Random.org and told it to pick a number 1-649, it did as instructed and I am now sculpting a Pokemon I've never even heard of before. If anyone wants to guess I'll give you guys a hint: It's from the Hoenn region and it's blue.
You won't win anything if you guess right, except the satisfaction that you are better than everyone else at guessing!
