I spent way too long compiling a timeline of my photography over the last 12 years. Trying to pick only 4 for each year was difficult. For a few of the years I tried to get some from the beginning and some from the end, but some years had more photos than others. πŸ˜‚

It's quite large, so I'm going to post it under a cut.

Tests and Inappropriateness

It was pretty sunny today which made it difficult to work with the lighting in my apartment where I normally take photos. Normally with overcast lighting I bounce it to the unlit side with my reflector but today the sun was shining and it was like having an additional light source when I tried to reflect the sun onto the darker side. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚I didn't end up taking as many photos as I planned. I need to charge my camera again.

I'm so enamoured with Rose Quartz and he's not even my doll. I can't help but pose him with Chalcedony. I tell myself it's practice for when I find a doll to be Ruby. They're both on the motion line body which makes posing much easier.

Also, Chalcedony is a really inappropriate character.... It makes sharing his true self difficult. As a result I made myself a NSFW image to use on my Instagram for the couple of photos I took that I will post there...and also here. Pls don't kill me lol.

In this case, it's more like "behind 'Read More'" haha

New Arrivals

This is a late post but some things needed to be completed first! So back in mid-March the order I placed with my good friends and my fiancΓ©e made a surprise arrival from Fairyland! I placed the order on my birthday (Jan 29) and the order contained all of the event pieces and 5 minifees so I was really shocked that we received it before April! I completely expected to wait until at least May. Even more surprising was that I was blessed with 0 custom fees. πŸ™

Anyway! Only 2 of those minifees were ours and they were Minifee Niella and Minifee Ria, both boys on the new motion-line body. Now our core gem group is finally complete! (We were only missing Rose Quartz.)

So on top of waiting for them to arrive, my fiancΓ©e had to paint them and then with the help of our dear friend Chibi we washed, dried and dyed some alpaca fibre so Ainsley could make my boy a wig! Next will be Rose but for now he has 10 billion options for his hair. πŸ˜‚

To continue my long tale, my Ria also didn't have a name or a character at all. I literally bought him on impulse because that's apparently how I make all my doll purchases. I eventually decided to name him Chalcedony (kal-se-dony) and give him the nickname Cal. For those who don't know, Chalcedony comes in beautiful pastel colours (blues, pinks, purples) and it's also the stone on my engagement ring. 😊

And yes, I ship all of the AU pairings with these characters apparently. I can't help myself. πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚
