So we had a little private meet among friends and I took all my Teenies with me to meet others of their kind. I also took Prince Eddie with me and he ended up whispering secrets to Hippu.
We had quite a few Byggs and Beylas present, six in total counting both the hooved and humans. :D But can you blame us? It's the best Teenie sculpt out there. At least if you do a poll in our group XD
Meringue and Floyd (who belongs to Velvet) have about the same feel about them, although Floyd has a bit more composure. Maybe Meringue is still upset that I haven't managed to get her a new wig yet. See I first got one from Spite&Malice, but...
...Cottoncandy stole it. :D It was a bit too puffy for Meringue. But Velvet mentioned that it looked rock'n'roll and I got the idea that it might work out better for Cotton. So now Cots is going to go in the direction of pastel rocker rather than pastel goth. I still need better clothes for her though. And with this wig I can go back to getting baby blue and pink clothes for her. My dolls never seem to keep the look I first intend for them... :P
Well, then I tried to make an alpaca wig for Meringue and decided to make a blond-pink curly one. But...
...but it worked out better for Hani! With this fluffy thing she looks more like a lost pidgeon than ever. :3 So now Meringue is back to wearing the fibre wig loaned from Hani. Well, it does look good with her clothes, but if Cotton is also going to go blue-pink, I might need to get Meringue something in gold-pink... I might actually try one other of Hani's wigs on her... That blond-pink one might work quite well...
Ah, the troubles of Teenie clothing! I actually comissioned a new set for Rigel so that he can look as fabulous as needed. The drafts from the seamstress look very good so far so I can't wait to see Rigel all ruffled up! ^-^ And I splurged and bought another outfit second hand. It's an all-white one and I'm kinda thinking of that tan Teenie I'm bound to get someday to wear it. But maybe it'll work for Other-Nuu or Cotton for the time being.
But enough of my own dolls for a while! Deary also brought both her own Teenies, Turpentine and the newcomer Pamplemousse. I must say I didn't really like the hooves in Soom's pictures but irl they are very cool! They make the doll a few centimeters taller than other Teenies and the look of the hooves remind me a bit of Adamelli's hooves. They are definitely more mature than the older fantasy parts.
The green is a still a bit off for me. I mean, I might try to get these hooves for Other-Nuu or some other doll if the hooves were clear, since then they would have better variety with blushing. Green works with Pample's colour-scheme though, it's a nice drop of colour complimenting the beige and dusty pinks. But I mean that clear parts could be blushed green if needed, so clear would have made more sense. Still, I'm looking forward to painting this doll, to make it complete ^-^
And then of course we had the hosts, meaning Velvet's dolls. Not all were Teenies, but I seem to have taken photos of only the little ones.
I would love to think that I improve my face-up skillz with every comission, but I have to admit that Lucky is definitely one of my all time favourites. The face-up just fits so well with the look Velvet has chosen for him. ^-^ And Ayato too, I'm glad he now has his own body so we can see more of him! He is such a grumpy little Ai, so different from most Ais I've seen.
Like Nio here ^-^ This curious look is more common on this sculpt and why not, it looks very cute!
Aaand the best for last. I'm always glad to see a new cute Teenie ^-^ Velvet recently bought this Beyla second hand and it has an amazing face-up from one of the best local artists. The same artist has actually done Milki's face-up, and both of these have been comissioned by previous owners (which is good, since the artist has looong queues).
Velvet was still a bit undecided with the final style this Beyla will have, so we will all have to wait and see. My money's on pastel unicorn though, any other bets? ;) And for a name I suggest Powerpuff! :D
