I'm bored, Lenny's bored, everybody's bored. And you know what that means? Photoshoots!
These first three pictures were my attempt to recreate "see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil" to go along with a somewhat Halloween-y theme. Lenny just makes it cute, though.

And here's adorable shy Lenny not wanting to pose for pictures.

What a photo dump.

It's a boring Saturday evening and I had some free time so I decided to try a makeup/costume test for Halloween... and I totally dragged Lenny into it. I have more pictures on my Tumblr and Flickr, but I'll be sharing some highlights here. This is the first time I've shown my face on this blog, and also the first time I've done a photoshoot with my doll. I'm still learning the quirks of my DSLR (including the self-timer I'm still having trouble with lol) so please bear with my blurry and overexposed photos!

And here's some more serious pictures...

And some not so serious photos.

It was time consuming to get the makeup and lighting right, but I'm glad I got some good shots! Much thanks to my roomie for handling half the camera work. It's been the most amount of fun I've had in awhile. Can't wait to do it again on ACTUAL Halloween!

Doll Chateau Ada for caffeinated-cake

I'm happy that I'm finally making progress with my faceup skills and business! I need more practice and examples for my portfolio, so I offered two free BJD faceups this month as a promotion. Someone was kind enough to let me use their DC Ada as a practicing tool, and here are the results!

I still need to work on my confidence with brushstrokes, but hopefully I'll get it eventually...
