"I wish DOA had an anonymous message ability sometimes. I want to ask if an artist will work on recasts, but if she doesn’t I don’t want her to get me banned for just simply owning one. It’s giving me a panic attack just thinking about being outed."

1) Follow the rules of the forum and don’t put recasts there, including trying to get services for your recasts through DoA.
2) Stop co-opting civil rights language. “Outing” is a term that refers to revealing the sexual orientation of a person who has not chosen to discuss that orientation with everyone. It doesn’t have anything to do with helping people hide their purchase of stolen intellectual property. If you are afraid of letting people know about your choices, maybe you need to make different choices. Sexual identity, not a choice. Buying stolen dolls and disrespecting artists, a very poor choice indeed.

It is also exceedingly poor advice to “ask the artist if they have any off-DoA galleries” that aren’t linked to from DoA, since a reply in the affirmative if she does paint recasts will get her banned also should this fact ever come to light. Directing anyone from DoA to a recast-promoting site is a offense that results in an immediate and permanent ban. Period. Zero tolerance really does mean zero tolerance. There is no sliding scale. One tiptoe over the line and you are out.

Clawdia and Skelita! I finally finished these girls and got some photos of them!

Both of them are repainted and have custom outfits and painted accessories. Clawdia, in addition, has been rerooted with super soft synthetic yarn fibers and Skelita’s hair has been restyled. 

These girls have really different looks, but I had a lot of fun doing both. Clawdia has a very casual goth vibe, while Skelita is dripping with old Hauntlywood glamor! 

I’ll be putting them up on eBay later this evening so please watch for them!

Woah! The little cyclops is sold already! Please feel free to share him around still since I am available for commission work. Price is by job so you’ll need to contact me individually. I’m up for any vinyl or resin jobs. I do repaints, rooting, basic sculpted details, etc.

Hello! 

I just wanted to let you guys know that I reduced the prices on Robecca, Deuce, and Twyla since I need to try and get them out if I can! 

Please check them out at my Etsy shop. :)

Rebageling these kids for a refresher~ If someone is interested I’ll relist them on Etsy, otherwise, to eBay they go for another try!

The Munny cyclops is finished and up on eBay! SOLD
I’m putting a few other things up as well and I’ll post as I get the listings up. 
Please help me spread this around far and wide! With SDCC this week, I’m really trying to push for some of my stuff to get sold so I’ll have a bit more leeway at the con. Thanks so much!
Since they haven’t sold on Etsy, I’ll be putting Deuce, Robecca, and Twyla up on eBay as well. Please watch for them!

The cost of dolls

After Friday’s post, there is another matter I’d like to discuss. Every now and then when I’m browsing the internet, I come across a post of someone saying how:

these dolls are way too expensive and doll artists make a ridiculous profit off our backs”.

When only looking at the price tag, I get how you might come to this conclusion. These dolls are expensive, yes, but I want to point out that the amount a buyer has to pay is not the profit we make. Far from it.

This is my Redbubble

I’ve been asked a few times about selling my work as stickers and Redbubble is having major improvements on their site enough so it convinced me to sell there too. Thanks to

They also have availability in other products that Society6 doesn’t have (and viceversa) and a…

For a long time I’ve been hesitant to write this post, because I don’t want it to come across as a cry for sympathy. And I don’t want to wage war on paper.
When talking about recasting, I could of course point fingers and say how the recast community has changed from…
