I’m feeling better. I’ve been resting as much as possible, took a couple of naps, and have been getting a lot of water and tea through me. My Mr. has been taking good care of me, bringing me extra beverages, purchasing special snacks, and making a special trip to the store so I could have soup. He also stepped in and helped with some heavy lifting that needed doing yesterday. My brother was also on staff at Kumoricon and came down at just the right time to help us load some heavy equipment. <3

And now the Aerie! I know it doesn’t look like it goes with the wings, or with Riddick’s style. It’s meant to be a place in his family’s home, so of course his mother is the one who chose the decorations!

The only things I bought to use in making it were the little 1/4” sticks that make the window frame. I could probably have cut those, but time was not on my side - I work full time and worked on this every single night plus several hours each weekend day. The base is made from a shelf from a cabinet (it had a label saying “projectors” on it). The sides, top, and all the molding were cut from old shelves that had been rescued from the scrap heap during a church remodel years ago. The back and bench are made from a piece of 1/4” plywood. The back is set into a dado in the sides, bottom and back, I tried to make it like a real piece of furniture would be made since I want to keep it long-term. My dad was glad I used up some of his scrap material on this project… he has a shop full of random bits and pieces.

The paint was all leftovers, some dad had lying around, but the yellow walls match the walls in my bedroom where this will be installed. The upholstery on the bench matches the doll bed I have. The curtains are the color they are just because that’s what I had the most material of! I made pillows to match, and if I’d had time might have made curtains for the window inside.

The lights are a set of Ikea Dioder lights I found in the as-is section months ago for $10! The sky behind the window is a laser print (12” x 15”! Glad our work copiers print up to 13 x 19.) that is laminated to give it a little shine. All the window parts are put on with double-stick tape, mostly because it was Saturday afternoon at that point and I needed to get it finished quickly. The windowsill was cut from more of the wood from the shelves. I stuck a little key on the windowsill, because I thought it was a cute detail.

The bench top actually opens for a teeny bit of storage, and the whole bench can come out if I ever want to put different furniture in there.

I used a ton of my dad’s workshop equipment on this - table saw, bandsaw, router, planer, and the air nailer, which is much faster than a hammer!

This was by far the most exhausting project of the three rounds of the triathlon.

Some of you people have poor reading comprehension skills. What Kleincrew said was that you’re a hypocrite if you boast about supporting the artists yet all you do is purchase dolls and parts second hand, because none of the proceeds go to the original companies. That’s a perfectly reasonable…

Oh, you special whiny fakebabies.

You can definitely support something that you don’t fund. Watch;

My name is Carly. I support York City FC. I don’t have much money, so I wear my brother’s old away shirt. I live in Aberdeen, so I can’t go to their games. I listen to their matches and know stuff about every player. I do not cost the club any money.

My name is Denise. I support York City FC. I don’t have much money, so I stole a new York FC shirt from the shops. I can’t afford to go to every match, so I pay to go to some, and then sneak into the stadium for others. The club loses money on the shirt that I stole, and the seat that I filled which would otherwise have contained a paying customer.

Which one is the better supporter?

Also, can I just officially petition to describe “Pro-recast” people as “Fakebabies”, since “Pro-recast” makes it sound like a well-thought-out ethical position (Like pro-choice or pro-life, both of which have complex arguments and layers of nuance behind them) and “Fakebaby” really gets across that these people have all the grasp of ethics, nuance and consequence of a toddler.

EAC, I love you. ´Special, Whiny Fakebabies´ is my new favorite insult.

Fakebabies! Love it!

Fakebabies have no honor and are despicable people.

THE MASTERFUL DOLL ROOM AND OUR ELUSIVE HORDE OF DOLLIES PART ONE.

IN PICTURE FORM, AT LAST~

Too many dolls to list, but this is what our doll room looks like right this second xD Some are more haphazard than others, since we move them around too much to pose! Showing dolls that belong to me and dolls that belong to Ginny(81missgaga)~ Even some we own together~ but definitely not all of them x.x

Some people complain we don’t show off our collections enough so <3 thought we’d share these horrible quick snapshots!

Have any questions or wanna see more of a specific doll, just ask!

Eee, what a beautiful collection! :D

And awesome shelving.  I would love to have something like that. @_@

Aw, thanks!!! I was tempted to rearrange and pose them all better, but I liked how disheveled and random they seemed xD our kids are usually a mixed group anyway.

OMG Aren’t they awesome???? Ginny’s dad built the whole thing! He’s magic, I swear. They’re so sturdy, extra deep so even the big boys have enough room to be stable sitting and all the shelves are adjustable! We’re in the process of putting in other shelves and deciding what we want done with the walls/decor but this is seriously the favorite room of our whole house <3

I want Ginny’s dad to do my room next. XD
