laialda: (Technical/Working)
With my next con quickly approaching this weekend, I've been scrambling to finish up all my new dolls this entire month. I posted some of them last month, but I'm now ready to share the big dump, so all you wonderful people can see why I've not been around posting/commenting or really do much of anything beyond simple replies.

The 4th Doctor




Dr. Horrible

And many more over in my deviantart gallery. I was going to post all the pictures...but there's about 10 in all and, yeah...that's a fair amount of images to load so I just picked my favorites of the bunch. :D

So I've got my next convention coming up on April 20th and to get ready for it I'm making lots of superhero/comic book dolls. So far I've finished:
Comic books and the Doctor's Sexy this way... )

Took a break from my commission work and picked up a meme. XD This is why I'm not allowed access to the internet, I procrastinate. ;)

I'm running a test to see who's reading my posts. So, if you read this, leave me a one-word comment about your day that starts with the third letter of your LJ USERNAME. Only one word please. Then repost so I can leave a word for you. Don't just post a word and not copy - that's not as much fun!

So flisters, you may or may not have noticed a lack of any activity from me from about...mid November. The main reason for that being my friend and I were last minute confirmed for a table at the gaming convention Magfest. This of course meant the 5 months I originally had to make my little dolls suddenly became 1.5 and i had to crochet and sew like a mad woman.

All the work paid off in the end though as my friend and I had a kick ass time at the con and each made over 1k selling our geeky crafts. :D We were also interviewed! So if you'd like to see a tired Saturday morning me takling about my stuff then just click on the link here.

The most surprising thing for me at the con was just how popular Doctor Who was with gamers. I sold my 11th Doctor, 10th Doctor, 10th Doctor in Blue, Cyberman, and a plush TARDIS. Only poor Rose didn't sell :( Though I gave out lots of business cards to people anxious to see what new Doctor Who dolls I would make, so that's exciting as I love new friends/stalkers. ^_^

Two girls also made my weekend by knowing who/where my Hatter doll was from and we gushed over Mr. Potts for a good few minutes. :D

This was my first convention where I've been able to talk to people who are buying my dolls and it was really great to see how many people like my little creations, and talk to them about them. As such, I do have about 5 doll commissions to make before I can get started on new ones for my next convention in April (A comic con so lots of superhero dolls coming this way soon), but before then I want to churn out some new chapters for Curious and Curiouser. Poor chapter 11 has been in my head since June and I'd like to reward my faithful readers by writing up maybe another 4-5 chapters to post over the next 2 months so that while I'm working on dolls and things I don't have to worry about trying to write at the same time.

I'd also like to get some chapters written for my DW/Alice crossover New New Wonderland as I really want to get to the second arc as I've FINALLY over the last few months started to figure out how I'd change the plot of Alice. :)

Well, I've got one gaming onesie commission down and one to go before starting my dolls, but I'll be around the interwebs while I work so you should start seeing me around more. ^_^

Thanks to Funday Monday's topic on [ profile] doctor_rose_fix, I've spent this week on new art and old art. And for once I don't mean crafts.

...though I have worked on those too....


Follow me for pretty pictures )
Anyway, just thought I'd share. Feel free to let me know if you like them though. ^_^
laialda: (Thoughtful)
It's true. I never stop thiking about the fics I'm working on but, with a few exceptions, I usually don't feel like writing. Doubly so since my best friend moved out in June and I never get time alone to write (except for sitting on my bed in my room which is quite uncomfortable really). Combined with wedding planning/immigration paper work and crafting to sell tihngs at cons and you get a big lump of no time online.

Since hopping back into HP fics though and being just disgusted at what's popular right now (*gasp* your fic has Weasley and Dumbledore bashing to the extreme and Harry has a harem!!? That sounds so completely original! *rolls eyes with heavy amounts of sarcasm*) it has kicked my desire to write something decent back into the forefront on my mind. So this is where I stand on things:
  • Harry Potter/Alice Crossover 'Curious and Curious' - Chapter 11 now has a title to go with it's outline, along with many small notes in my head that I may or may not remember while I write. Hatter and Alice will be getting seperate scoldings and may have their talk before it ends, depends on how long the piece is already running.
  • Doctor Who/Alice Crossover 'New New Wonderland' - Chapter 2 has been sitting with about 2 pages typed into the first scene since June and I feel quite guilty about it. I've fallen into the trap of actually plotting everything out in detail and now have little drive to work on this crossover/ Doctor&Rose reunion fic as I know what happens. *sigh* Really would like to work on it some as it would be a very serious piece and I think my idea is a unquie one.

I have a week until my next convention so I do need to work on finishing the things I need for that (5 dolls, 4 hacky-sacks, bottlecaps and wands) but I think I'll try to do some writing tonight and see what comes of it. :)

Also, side note, after sepending some more time on LJ I think I'm going to put my fiction up on my journal here as well in the near by future. Thinking about back dating it if I do so I don't clog up those very few people who have me on their f-list. Plus it would let me make pretty banners for my stories and as an artist this appeals to me greatly. XD

So, I'm sitting across from my bin of finished crafts and the dolls inside are taunting me...Ever since I made an army for the convention back in May I've had the overwhelming urge to just, well, make little comics/photo adventures with them.

Why thank you brain for giving me the idea for another project I don't have time for. No really I appreciate it  >.<

Quite simply it's because I've been crafting. And not the 'Oh, I think I'll make 'X' item cause it would be cute and I wanna do it' ....okay well, partly that but mostly because I want to make things to sell at the sci-fi/fantasy based convention I'll be going to Memorial Day weekend. My hands, idle they have not been:

This is everything I've made of the last...month I think? yes, journals included, though the tall one in the back isn't done yet. I've got a full list on my deviantart page of all the things I plan on making but suffice to say it's a lot. I will be working on my main story (actually had a brain storm on what my major conflict for certain events down the line was going to be FINALLY so I am excited about working on it) we all just have to deal with my normal creativity telling writing to take a back seat and every time Writing asks 'How far away are we?' Crafting says 'About an hour'...
