Hello and Happy New Year, everyone. I sure had fun last night. Want to know what I was doing? What had me so preoccupied that I barely noticed the stroke of midnight?... Well... I was playing with dolls. No, not my own lost and broken childhood relics, or the stunningly gorgeous and horrifically expensive Japanese ball-joint hotties that I wish I could afford. And not the sex-shop kind either.:P I spent hours entertaining myself, quietly and at no cost whatsoever, with the Candybar Doll Maker. And I didn't even need alcohol to make this fun (though I did have some, just because it seemed stupid NOT to have any on New Year's Eve... lol). Btw, my celebratory shopping for the occasion consisted of a bottle of White Zinfandel and two small pints of ice cream. So I did party, see? I had wine and a fancy dessert without needing to dress up or put myself through the torture of social interaction.:P And if anything worries me about it, it's how absolutely great it felt to spend the evening on my own. Not that I would have minded the company of one or two close, trusted friends - but those are either very far away or prefer the 'traditional' (= noisy & crowded) way of celebrating such occasions. So I really do think I picked the best option available to me under the circumstances. I am actually relieved that no one tried to talk me into going anywhere (which might have involved needlessly spending money or possibly feeling uncomfortable). I do have fond memories of New Year's Eve parties from a few years back - but I also know that it would never be the same again for me, because I am not the same person anymore. Time flies, and the river I would perhaps like to step into is long gone within the depths of the ocean. What would have felt like a depressing failure back then (celebrating the New Year by myself) is now my first conscious choice. Btw, I think it's a great metaphor for how my perception of solitude has changed over the years. But that's probably a topic for a whole another post. I didn't actually mean to be serious tonight. I meant to share the fruits of last night's embarrassing activities.;)

So, without further ado, here's a multiracial party parade.:) (I couldn't find a way of changing a doll's skin color, so I didn't make a black or a very dark-skinned doll; but I tried for some variety with facial features and other details instead)


















See? I can be so easily amused sometimes it's almost disturbing.:D But that's not the end of it. Girls were generally more fun to play with than boys (due to much more variety in the hair/clothing department), but I decided to give my OTP some well-deserved recognition as well. So I made a Viggo. And an Orlando. You have no idea how challenging it was to acquire some likeness. There aren't many choices when it comes to the shape of the face, so regretfully I couldn't give Viggo a cleft chin; but I found a plaid shirt and cowboy boots for him, yay! ;P And Orli is full of holiday spirit, lol. I tried to dress him in gayer clothes, but somehow couldn't find a suitably 'Orlish' outfit - so the scarf has to do for now.:) Voila!






P.S. No need to comment. I know I qualify to be locked up. But I generally tend to stay away from other people, so my insanity is rather harmless. It has its main outlet right here, where it can be safely ignored.:P

OH! Your Viggo Orlando are wonderful. I did a cowboy Viggo and a beach bum Orlando, but I can't find them. They do make time go fast though. I so agree.

These look lovely!

hugs

Yeah, I was trying to find them for [livejournal.com profile] snoewhite the other day. They may have gotten deleted, but if I find it, I'll make sure I show you too.

hugs

Heheh. I spent some time looking for a loud, obnoxious yellow shirt... but then I saw the sweater with the scarf and decided to dress him appropriately to the season.:P

Love the Viggo and Orli! You had fun and that's all that matters.

We stayed in, had a pasta fest (very naughty for us), and watched videos.

Happy New Year! *hugs*

Hi!:) I'm glad you like them.;) I have one of myself on my user profile page, remember? Well, if you click on that one, it takes you to the website where you can create more. It's sooo much fun!!!;D

Of course you can snag them and make icons or whatever. That'd be even more fun. *bounces like a five-year-old* ;P
