elfdoll vivien commission by Arckaya elfdoll vivien commission by Arckaya
For the utterly awesome :iconhiido:. Her character Vogue, who is all dramatic and glamorous and high fashion. :'D

I've already said this before, but I am really glad I got to paint this lady. Vivien is such an awesome mold. ;_; I normally don't do this type of faceup either, so it was great to break out of my comfort zone a bit.

(while I was applying Pearl Ex powder to her eyes, I was trying to get a bit of the powder out of the bottle to mix with my gloss, but I somehow managed to spill half the bottle into the gloss. I AM SKILLED.)

Gorgeous work as always! *o*
It's also nice to se a Vivien who doesn't look Asian, since I'm considering her for a caucasian character. :D

Thanks so much! I'm not sure how I feel about using glittery stuff on dolls, but I guess it's fine when it suits the character.

Ohgodohgodohgod. She is AMAZING! Thank you SO much. : DDD
Seriously. I am so excited to get her back and take photos of her. Wow.

Also... where did you get those eyes. They look /really/ good with her... ;O

(Aww poor you... >w< I would also recommend scooping a little bit out at a time with a dry brush and then mixing... or at least that seems to work for me. XD)

I stole Alfie's mystic urethanes for this. They look good in everybody, pretty much. XD

I'm really glad you like her! And I fully expect tons of picspam of her when she gets back. I love the way you photograph her, so it's going to be epic! And your advice about the pearlex is duly noted. c:

Also, I kind of lost your address. Would you mind noting me with it again? :'D

How much were they, if you remember?
I'm just curious, since lately I've been having the worst time with eyes for Vogue and Void.

Oh, but of course. As soon as she's back you WILL get spam. Lots of spam. <3

and I will note you with my address now!

Ugghh, mystics are all $50 or more, I think. And they're preorder only unless you can find the exact size and color you want on the marketplace. :/ I had to wait seven months for a single pair, although the normal wait time is half that. DDDD:

They were still worth it, though! They are absolutely amazing at catching available light and photograph beautifully.

Mmm I might have to look into a pair when I have some extra cash. They're really nice. ;O

If I ever land some spare doll money and my crew is already impeccably clothed (unlikely), I'm upgrading my girls to urethanes too. They're worth the investment, IMO. o:

Sounds like a good plan. It would cost me hundreds to upgrade my entire band of misfits though. XD

Elfdoll lips are the best. They've got so much volume and definition! It was really easy to get them to look like that. :'D

And Vivien makes a pretty good boy too! I want to see what you do when you get one. c:

I'm really glad you think so! I kind of fail at applying makeup in real life so this was definitely different for me.

I am the opposite! Haha. Real makeup is easy by comparison--but that's also likely due to my lack of MSC [poor Bob still has half a faceup. :x] Praise the lord I never had to do either of Elliot's heads or I'd explode.
