Werepuppy's (Attempt At) Doll-A-Day 2019!
Has Olivia o'Lantern received a feature photo of her own yet? She needs one! Or another one!

I understand about things being hectic and exhausting. I hope your world returns to normal... or your version of normal... soon.
They're not dolls, they're action figures!

Thanks, dear! I didn't mean to go completely silent the way I did, but I was just that exhausted that even trying to think up comments was beyond me. I am proud of how that BeGoths photo turned out, I need to do more of that kind for those dolls - they work so well if you can make the splashes of colour bold in them. Casta had an amazing stock look... but my want of an Elphaba was higher, lol.

Glad you still had some dolly time in all the busy-ness.

My collection has one common thread: I liked the item, LOL. It was fun being able to sit with my Pikachu while watching the movie, and I would say having it on home release would be better. There's a ton of little details that you would be able to pick up better at home than in the cinema, really. One of the days was at least a good kind of busy - I was meeting up with a friend who, due to distance, I don't get to see a lot, and we had some fun doll chat.

She did have a solo photo in my catalogue of BeGoths a week or two ago, but I do fully agree, I need to take more photos of this stunning girl. If the good weather holds, I might try for an outside picture... My world is still a bit on the hectic side at the moment but at least for today, I do not need to go to many different places. (Being outside is very exhausting when your main sensory issue is noise >.<)

138. Paranormal Detective
[Image: 54962315_ab1134559dc51bf598614a3976b1d20f_standard.jpg]
Arrival date: 17th May 2019
I have been saving up for this guy since I first heard about him, and that was... some time last year I think. Various reasons meant the money kept getting used but finally I was able to order and he's here! Really have to give props to the stockist I ordered him from. As well as having the best price out of all the ones I looked at, the delivery was really fast, and he came super well packaged.
Ah, he's amazing. The sculpt is perfect and the clothing is wondering and even the box looks fantastic. So happy to have him as part of my collection. (And yes, I have plans...)

Marvelously detailed outfit! The jacket is nice. The fit and drape of the trousers is quite realistic. Congratulations on acquiring a figure for which you've been saving.

Oh, and in checking back, I see the earlier photo of Olivia. She looks more interesting in the recent photo. Yes, she needs to be featured again. Perhaps in an outdoor fairy garden setting.
They're not dolls, they're action figures!

Yay, another inmate ehm, inhabitant with the ability to set the whole place on fire! Who is he?

Oh he looks nice! Is he from something? For paranormal investigators I can only think of X-files and Twin Peaks

That’s John Constantine. He had his own comic and TV series and he’s currently one of the legends in DC’s Legends of Tomorrow series. Yes, I am a nerd.

I picked him from just the top part of the photo - before I even got down to the fireball in the hand.

He looks very world-weary and worn out - just like he looks on the live version TV.

Olivia O'lantern definitey needs another solo-shoot - she's my favourite of your BeGoths I think.

He was a bit pricer than my usual grabs - though less ex.pensive than a new Pullip - but the look of him just makes it all incredibly worth it. That he's a representation of one of my long time favourite comic book characters is just an extra bonus. I will see what I can do about another photo (or two) of Olivia. I have ideas, it's just... really getting them done.

Yes, inhabitant, lol. He's John Constantine, as Elfy answered. He's one of my favourite comic characters, and this is a fantastic representation of the best live action version of him.

Honestly, he's more of a magic user for hire than a paranormal detective, but that was the title SooSoo Toys gave the figure. (Yeah, he's a a third party figure. Like Transformers but for 1:6 scale.)

As am I! Matt Ryan gives a really perfect performance as Constantine, and I really wish that his solo series had not been cancelled. Though, happily, the blu-ray release of the series is region free! I hope he gets to hang around in Legends another series, he's a good fit for there. (Also if they were think to bring Zatanna around, that would be cool. Or, y'know, tie up plot threads from his series...)

The detailing on him is fantastic, he is a perfect representation of the character. And I think Olivia is definitely going to have some more photos taken, it's just getting around to the doing it.

Because I really thought the little ones would look cute in them. Rabbie will get a pair soon! Once again, I fudged the pattern together myself from measurements and scrap bits of fabric. Sorry there's a bit of a yellow-ish tint to the pictures - I really need to change my lightbulb to a white one, but they're a bit more costly. I didn't have much luck with natural lighting when I was taking this either.

When you say things like this, I picture you living in a tiny attic or basement room with a single bare, flickering light bulb dangling from a frayed electrical cord, rather than in a palatial manor house with lush carpeting, wing-back chairs set before a roaring fire, and, of course, secret stairways.

Yellowish light is better than the hideous green pallor cast by those ridiculous "twisty" CFL bulbs that were supposed to revolutionize home energy consumption. Fortunately, those things seem to be largely extinct here in the States. Do you still have them in the UK, or are most light bulbs the LED type?

Nyaaaa! So adorable! Can't wait to see Rabbie's.

Great job on the outfit, especially making up the pattern yourself. And congrats on getting a long-awaited favourite character!
Can you adjust the white balance on your camera?
I think there are still some CFL bulbs around here (?), but I quit buying them & swapped mine back to the old "inefficient" ones after one made the house smell like something was burning, and a friend had one start smoking Oh My

The CFL bulbs have small amounts of mercury in them, too. And in my eggsperience, they never lasted anywhere close to as long as they were supposed to. In fact, most of them did not last as long as regular incandescent bulbs.
