Mox's Artsy Things

I got back from my training weekend and since more than a few people seem interested in garage kits I sorted through the bajillion resin parts— came up with 18 complete Iphigenia kits with parts I consider workable, although they will require a LOT of work, whether it’s cutting or sanding or drilling or additive work with epoxy, as not all the colors even match. (see rather depressing photo.) This is not an easy garage kit, it is definitely not for beginners, and I advise anyone who takes me up on this to please, please, please outfit yourself with a good respirator and ventilation system before tackling this bad boy. The above photo is fairly representative of what you can expect from any one of the kits, except that the parts might match in color more or less.

They will be $50, 1/4 the original price, and this does not include shipping; I hope very much that this is reasonable. I will not ship outside the US, sorry— I lose too much money on fees.

I am making nothing from this, every penny will go towards refunds. Even if you’re not interested I would greatly greatly appreciate a signal boost— I would like nothing more than to refund my customers as quickly as humanly possible, and between this and my actual real life job, this is all I can do.

I’ll contact those of you who have specifically expressed an interest soon (or you can PM me again), otherwise thank you so much for taking a gander. I’m also trying to figure out how to make some of the decent heads into pendants (please let me know if you would be interested in those instead!) there were a surprising number of ok-looking extra heads after I put the kits together. No right knees though, and a surprising lack of right shins…

This lovely artist got screwed really hard by a casting company that, as you can see, didn’t deliver (which is about the mildest way I can put it.)  

She has been incredibly ethical and conscientious about making sure that everyone who ordered a doll gets a refund — but it’s all coming out of her pocket.  

If you’re a garage-kit person with the tools/skills to build kits that start off rough, this is an amazing deal on a lovely articulated ball-jointed resin doll — check out art-iculated’s Tumblr to see what she looks like in complete form.

signal boost!!

Ah, hello Namiren! I wanted to ask you something... Is Doll Chateau a good company? I mean, are their dolls more fragile than others? Are they posable? I want to buy a MSD Charles next year and I'm a bit afraid because of all the joints O;O

namiren:

hi ! I’m sorry for saying this  but… it’s in my opinion somewhere 2/5 1/5 :/ I pretty much dislike their joints and I had the new girl body… it was terrible :/ poor thing had no chanse to stand at all :/ It’s sad that DC doesn’t do anything for their dolls posing :/

well… I wish you the best with getting him ,maybe suede wires can help :)

I’m going to put in my two cents and say that with the smaller ones (MSD down) once they ‘re sueded they’re pretty nice, all those double joints let them do some cool stuff. My MSD girl (old body) I feel poses pretty nicely, except her neck mobility upwards is absolutely terrible. My youth boy is sueded and he’s kinda impossible still. One thing I will say is that mine are terrific standers. My friend who has a Christina says hers is impossible to stand though, so if you’re going for one of the new bodies you may have a harder time.

That said, though they are skinny I wouldn’t consider them particularly breakable. Their resin feels really nice, they come well sanded and they are SO much more beautiful in person, I feel like photos never do the sculpts justice (except maybe Namiren’s, haha. Sorry for hijacking your post!)

My little cyclops girl again. Apparently her name is Maddy. Apologies for the boring pose, trying to nail down her look!

DJ’s sister Camellia talked her and Pekoe into playing with her X3

Pekoe, my DC Ada! One day you will get clothes, little one. When I figure out where to put them. @___@

Took some pictures of DJ at the Rosecrucian Egyptian Museum, ‘cause we were there for a meetup. I missed this girl.
