wasn’t my fault, but was due to Shapeways’ quality control*, catching a printing error (the first print had a divot in it, so they re-printed the left shin). Somehow, the reprinted left shin and the original wonky left shin got packed up instead of the reprinted left & printed-right-the-first-time right one. I sent them this picture, and they found and posted me the right leg.
Which has been stuck in customs for just over a week.
I had to lodge a dispute over value of the package, because it was apparently flagged at over $1000 in value and needed duty paid. Which is obviously an error.
Shapeways have been great, and the lady at customs I spoke to was very helpful and sorted it for me, but still…
Huff. I just wanna put this girl together properly so I can figure out how to make her better…
And on his way back home.
Product photos sooooooooon
Guess who arrived safely at the factory in China?
Quick sketch in clay I did on Monday.
Gonna do some more on him tomorrow, now the clay has had time to firm-up.
Feeling the urge to start a new doll.
Given that my 1/3 boy is more on the ‘heavier’ side proportion wise (for BJDs his height the standard waist measurement seems to be a good 8cm less than what I ended up with) I’m thinking I’d really like to do a female in the same kind of vein.
Maybe 60cm tall? The male doll is 66cm tall.
I’m really just thinking aloud. And these sketches are awfully wonky.
Soon Nonnie, soon.
The male one is en-route to china for reproduction right now (and should arrive by the end of this week) and once he’s there I’ll be opening preorders…
