a.k.a. the Doll from Death Stranding

babby01.jpg

I have been wanting to recreate this doll since the 2nd trailer for Death Stranding came up except I’m so lazy to go out to look for a cheap doll that it took me this long to make it.

I was looking for the cheapest blinking doll I could find but majority of the dolls I found cries. Like literally it cries, if you take off the pacifier, it cries. It is like the doll knows what I’m about to do! lol

I was talking to the lady I bought this from and she commented that those dolls doesn’t exist anymore (or rather they don’t sell them) cause the crying was the selling point. I have to say she has a point. She also said that the quality of the dolls have gone down. And I can see that just from the doll’s hair. I remember dolls like this before and they used to have more hair than that.

First order of business is to remove it’s pacifier, remove its hair, cut the belly and put wires in. Removing the pacifier and what make it cry was easy. Cutting and specially putting the wire was kind of a challenge cause cutting plastic and creating small holes was kinda scary. I was scared at some point that I might cut myself. I have to use my fingers to keep the plastic in place.

Since I was using acrylic to paint its grimy details I have to use quite a bit of water. And since plastic is water resistant, I have to put a thin layer of white paint. Painting it white also help make it look like it’s been under the sun for a while. I worked on the pieces individually, it makes it easier to paint.

I also took the time to fill in the gaping hole in the doll’s back. I know I don’t have to but I just wanted to do it. I used super glue and a piece of hard plastic, and then some clay to create the shape of the back. I also layered it with skin colored paint and then just butchered it with black later on.

Like I mentioned before cutting plastic wasn’t easy but creating tiny holes in it’s head was harder. I was originally thinking of punching small holes in its head but it was so hard that I just painted the holes. The plastic on the doll’s head was thicker and it’s color is different from it’s body. This is another reason why I painted the whole thing with white paint. The doll originally have lip stain, blushes and eye brows. I don’t have paint thinner to remove them so I just covered it up.

I used a couple of pins to mimic those things in it’s head. I don’t really know what they are, it could be wood cause on its color. I was also thinking who made the doll. Since it’s a doll maybe it's a twisted kid condemning someone in the game or maybe just an adult like me who’s crazy enough to make one. So again, I don’t know what’s that on it’s head.

I also glued it’s right eye with glue although I really don’t have to but I’m kinda mimicking the game trailer. Never once in the trailer that we so the doll upright. So we can’t say it can still open it’s eyes.

Looking at this doll, it kinda reminds me of Pinhead from the Hellraiser series. I bet this doll tells a story too. When I showed it to my brother, he said ‘too bad we don’t know what it’s name yet’ (then later commented that that there are still no update for Final Fantasy 7 remake lol).

I know it’s not an exact replica but I tried my best. Also this made me realize that this is the second time I made something from the second trailer. I did drew Mads Mikkelsen’s character last year. I think I should do something from the first trailer. The dog tags perhaps?

I can’t wait for this game to come out. I heard that this is going to be open world with online features which scares me a bit since I don’t do well with online co-op stuff, also I tend to get lost in open world stuff. Not lost as I-can’t-find-my-way lost but lost just looking at details and stuff. I remember playing Shadow of the Colossus just wandering around. But still, I can’t wait!!

by the way, the doll's left eye can still blink and as for the right eye I have lightly glued it for the picture.

If you got this far and still don’t know what I’m blabbing about or where this idea came from, check this out:


honestly I feel bad for the doll... (´・_・`)

Miku to Issho

I was gonna create another blog about this but again I wanna keep things in a minimum so I decided to just make a blog post. And if in the future I have more, I’ll just create another blog post.

Normally I don’t have any games on my phone cause majority of the game I like needs internet connection and I vow not to use data to play games. So I would end up playing with the camera taking random pictures or selfies until I discovered 【Miku AR Camera】Mikuture on Google Play and I end up playing with it. It does take time to put her on different poses which a cute way to pass time. You can change her facial expressions too and the lightning! Which is great cause somehow you can match her to the environment, although of course it’s still going to be obviously fake.

I also have AR on my PSVita via the game Project Diva and I have a lot of fun in there too.

I’ll also leave it here…

1000 Paper Cranes

1000 paper cranes (1)
This is what 1000 paper cranes look like lolz

I did this probably 2004. I don’t know why I think it’s 2004 it just sticks to me. I remember finishing this 3 - 7 days. I know I was aiming 3 days but I know I went over that. I made so much that until now, even with my eyes closed, I can make one.

I know why I did this but I don’t remember what I wished for specifically. They said that making 1000 paper cranes you can make one wish. I don’t think my wish came true though. Or maybe it did I just didn’t realize it.

I have had this is my room and sadly I have to take it down cause a mouse has been running around my room and decided to chew on one of the strings and some of the cranes. It’s really dusty now and I think I really need to retire this. I don’t think I should keep it around.

2016

明けましておめでとうございます!!!

I described 2015 as a rollercoaster ride and 2016 well I think I fainted. Last year was chill, I feel like I slept through 2016 and woke up to another year ending. It was so chill, too chill for my taste though. But I get to study Nihonggo this year so it wasn't that bad.

Also I was able to complete my Art Resolution!!

Nostalgia in Mini packages

When mini NES Classic was released, I kinda wanted it for the nostalgia. I love classic videogames, those are the games I grew up with. But shelling out money for it although the games are awesome but I know I can just use a simulator for it.

But then Mini FamiCom came out, it was different. Family Computer or FamiCom is my first game console. Reading that it’s going to be released in Japan unlike NES Classic that was released in the US, I knew I’ll never see that mini FamiCom unless I order it from Japan.

Last month, one of the game store that I was following on Twitter posted that they are selling NES Classic and of course Mini FamiCom. I was planning to go as soon as I can (since I saw the twitter when I was already in bed). The next day even before we go to the mall, brother suggested we call first. So we did and found that the console was sold out on the same day. I was a little sad but I just thought it was meant to be.

Then early this week, another post was made on Twitter by another game store. Announcing that they are selling another batch but this time is was 2K more than the initial selling price. I have to be honest, these mini nostalgia filled consoles are quite cheap, so I wasn’t that surprised that they made it a bit more expensive. He didn’t mind the price cause that tend to happen when limited items like this comes out.

Without question my brother bought the FamiCom version. He wanted the NES Classic. Hopefully I get to buy that in exchange, cause I wanted FamiCom and he initially wanted NES Classic. But the latter sell faster because it’s in English unlike FamiCom that is Japanese only.
