Shoe meme

So, Lise tagged me to do this ;)

  • Take a pic of your doll shoe collection. You can picture all the sizes of shoes you have, even the ones that are handmade/commissioned and so on.
  • Answer the questions! They are only six, but you can add more if you are inspired to do so.
  • Tag friends so they can continue the meme. 

All of the doll shoes under my roof:
There are even still some shoes for SD dolls and a pair of 70cm boy shoes...I hope to sell them soon. XD

1. Which was your first pair of shoes?
I remember they where those white-with-black-'ribbon'-J-rock-style platform shoes. Back in my teenage years when I was totally J-rock fanatic and had just bought my first doll - a Luts CP Delf Shine

2. Which type of doll shoes do you prefer?
Cute shoes in nice colors or with prints. I really like the Mary Jane silhouette. I also really like if there is some cute detail like a ribbon or a charm or such ;3

3. Do you have any grail pair?
I'm not really the type who has grail stuff...but I would love being able to afford some DollHeart shoes again some time XD

4. Anything that bothers you regarding doll shoes?
Sometimes I'm really frustrated that I cannot buy the same shoes for myself...

5. Do you prefer boots or heels/flats?
It totally depends on the character. But I guess I like looking at heels - mostly if they are sort of artistic or out-of-the-ordinary. I guess that's also why it sometimes annoys me that I cannot get them for myself XD

6. Any anecdote regarding your shoes?
It said "brown" on the Taobao page where I ordered these, but they turned out pretty black when I got them. But I still think they look great and Alice has happily worn them since. These where the first shoe-purchase I did from Taobao, and I was pretty surprised about the quality compared with the price :D

I'd love to nominate someone to do this too, but the ones I know have already been nominated - so easy beeing me. XD

P.S. Today I've been battling my airbrush trying to figure it out. I tried mixing my own paint - using gauge, medium and water, but I think it got too thin. Then again, the airbrush acrylics I've bought turned out to be a little too thick - maybe because I use an airbrush with a very small needle size...idk, but I'm not giving up >_<"

Examstress (x_x")

It's been too long since I last updated ;__;"

I'm currently having my exams for this semester, and they are really demanding most of my time atm. BUT! Tomorrow - after my 2nd out of my 3 exams - I will pass by my local art-store to get the last supplies I need to be able to start off doing all the faceups I need to get done.

A week ago I pulled out my airbrush and compressor, and it turns out the compressor is actually not as noisy as I remembered, so I will be able to use it inside without disturbing my neighbors. :D
That means - I'm (almost) ready to start doing faceups.

First up is my sister's tiny deer girl from Soom (sorry, can't remember the exact sculpt name).
It will be my first time trying to paint fantasy parts, so that is going to be exciting.
But seriously - fantasy parts are a pain in the b*t to clean! oO"

Then I need to finish at least one of my own, before going home to my parents house on Thursday next week. I don't know which one will be the first.

So I hope I'll be able to show off some dollies soon :D

Oh! And I've been nominated to do a shoe meme by Lise from Red Riding Hood - I promise I'll make it this weekend :D (I really need to do something else than just studying for the exam, and the dolls are just a perfect break from all the exam-stuff)
