Jade

I did a quick face-up on Jadeite~ with which I am not 100% satisfied for sure XD; ~ I need to get another face-up done for her!




Nevertheless, I've managed to take some photos of her ~


The next day, Soom Hyperon arrived! A guy I've obtained in a trade ~ and a long-time wish!

He's on the megagem body.... and I realized I have no pants that can fit him at all XD Time to shop at Iplehouse!
His hands are huge~ just compare to my girl's face o_o ~ his default face-up is way too colorful for me though, as I've planned something darker. However I am currently too lazy to do cleaning + face-upping. Plus I suck at boy face-ups!

On a side note, I'd completely forgotten how evil Dutch customs were. o_o 180 euros for Jade and 150 for Hyperon! ZOMG.

  1. Oh, I really like Jade's new look! <3
    And Hyperon looks like he's been transported from the eighties ^_^ I can imagine that a boy face-up would be hard to do, since it has to be so subtle. Jeez, those customs prices are horrendous, you could buy a new doll from that money :(

    1. Thank you sooo much! :D Hahah, really? Maybe he should get a matching hair cut and outfit for that ~ ahahah!
      Yes I think so too, since I prefer them with more subtle/less vibrant colors for sure :O but it's hard not to make it look too girly!

      I totally agree xO I will pay more attention to marking lower values next time!

  3. Hyperon!!!! I love that sculpt so much!!!@ congrats he is gorgeous!! an dthey look so nice together!

    I like the face up you did on your girl, what do you want to change? In any case whatever you do to her it will be gorgeous :D! It helps that the sculpt is already amazing, but you are a great artist too :D

    1. I also love his sculpt~ Ahaha, a great couple already, right? LOL

      I'm not actually sure what I want to change, I'm just not 100% sure I did much justice to the sculpt, perhaps I could accentuate the lips more, or something? You're so sweet, thanks so much for your confidence ;_;

  4. Omg Hyperon!! ♥♥ Love how he's tapping your Jadeite's shoulder like "Excuse me, could I please get some attention as well?" If you think those hands are huge, you should see the Idealian hands - they're much bigger than Mega Gem's hahah XD Looking forward to how he'll look with a new faceup!

    Also, love the faceup you did on Jadeite! I think it brings up the best features of that sculpt, but I do understand the feeling of not being 100% happy with a faceup :3 Hope you manage to get it look like you want! Jade's eye shape is lovely, is it just me or does it look similar to Soom Cuprit's eyes? D: Love her dress as well!

    Custom fees suck :c In Finland we have to pay enormous custom fees as well... Though I feel like I shouldn't complain, since I've heard that in some countries they have to pay a lot more than us ^^;

    1. Ahh, he's already an attention seeker! Hahha :D I can't believe Sarg has 4 of these huge guys on the bigger body ;_; that's incredible! Where does she keep them?

      Thank you, I also think she has 'almond'-shaped eyes, which I think Cuprit and some other Soom dolls share a bit!

      Yeah I agree, it could be worse I'm sure! I will totally let it go now, since the money is already gone. LOL

    2. We have a little walk-in closet where we keep our bigger dolls :) Some are sitting on shelves and some on doll boxes or little chairs. There's no way we could fit our SDs anywhere without the closet room ^^; Maybe I should take some photos or a video tour of the room?

    3. That sounds amazingly nice, a video tour would be really cool! Do it ~! :D

  5. They're both great looking dolls - I love the size on Hyperon! And even if you're not quite satisfied with Jade's look, she looks very sweet in these photos, so I think you did a lovely job! :)

    1. Thanks so much for your kindness, I am starting to warm up to her a little more as well :3 ~ perhaps in the future I could improve upon her a bit!

  6. What a couple of cuties! I love your faceups, they make the sculpts look even better! (Jade looks like she poses well too!)

    1. Thank you so much! I'm just an amateur really~
      Oh yes, the OasisDoll body is really lovely, and I am already a fan! :D

  7. She's so pretty, gosh I love those luscious lips! *__* ♥ But I totally get if you're not satisfied with the face up. I also don't like the face up I did for my Linglan, although as a whole it looks nice enough, there are still some details that bug me. I hope that I'll be able to redo it soon, especially after I got my Natalie and the face up that I did for her looks so much better. xD Thankfully now the weather has been sunny & dry and very warm, so I should be able to do some face ups one of these days!

    And congrats on your Hyperon! That default face up looks a bit colourful indeed. xD;; I suppose Soom planned it for NS and didn't realise to think about how that would look on white skin. Well, nevertheless, he's very handsome. :3 I'll look forward to seeing photos of him, too!

    And yikes, those customs fees!! @__@ Oasisdolls are pretty pricy (although totally worth it in quality) so I was dreading how much I'd have to pay for my Linglan... but I got her straight home without any fees and I was so surprised! When I examined the package, for some reason they hadn't filled out the customs note properly at the sender's end so it had no value written on it at all... I do wonder how something like that is possible, but perhaps that was why the customs office didn't take it as hostage. :'D Although, I'd think a package with no value would seem highly suspicious to them, but maybe they had a busy day and couldn't bother to start digging into it. These days all my packages seem to go straight into customs, so I'm certainly not complaining, though. @.@;

    1. Thank you! Oh yes, the weather has been nice all around, really perfect for doing some crafting or face-upping! I actually want another Oasisdoll after having this girl, since the bodies are quite superb!

      Yep, but for now it's not too bad as a temporary face-up :D So lazyy~~

      It seems Finnish customs are even more strict than here, so I really shouldn't complain! Haha :D Next time i will definitely pay more attention to having lower values marked though ;_; maybe I can still fool them.

  8. Hi Irene,

  9. Jade is beautiful! ^__^ I love the face up you've created. Very lovely and suitable for her face. She has so pretty hands too, so delicate.

    Hyperon is a big guy I see. O_O Huge hands and nice face up, but also for me it would be too colourful for a guy. :) I'm sure you'll create something beautiful for him too! Handsome guy!

    Ahhaaa the customs. I'm never happy to pay the ransom for dolls and stuff for them. ^^; I guess I shouldn't even begin about this. xD SO I wont continue.

    1. Aw thank you! I also adore her sculpt so much and I especially love delicate hands!
      For men big hands are also good... ahahha :D I'm not sure I'll still have the time to do that, but let's see!!

      Yeahhh, I think Europe has the highest fees for sure ;_; But it's useless to complain after the fact, I guess? :D LOL -cries in corner for lost money-

  10. Congratz on both of them! :D
    Jadeite has some lovely lips *__*
    Hyperion is gorgeous! He is one of my fav SOOM guys too! But yeah, a darker faceup sounds nice on him ^^

    1. Thank you!
      I've loved him for ages, and I really hope I can actually manage something that would do him justice as well ToT

  11. I think you did a fantastic job on her face up. She looks so sweet and beautiful, I particularly love the subtle appearance of her face. I can't wait to see what you end up doing for your boy. I can see why you're not as fussed on his face though.

    I feel for people over that way. Custom fees are so high. It makes me realise how lucky we are here in Australia.

    1. Thank you! I hope I can still get his done too :D I have a huge backlog of face-ups to re-do as well though, on a bunch of my other dolls. Like those will ever get done T_T

      Ahaha, yeah, you really are lucky if you're not paying any! :D

  12. You did a great job on her faceup. She looks fresh and pure, just like a cherry blossom.
