My little SD pair

With all the building on my workroom, I still managed to finish up this little pair.

They are painted with acrylic paint and shaded with pastels ( there was no way for me to shade their clothes with airbrush). I also added some cubes and a blanket for the boy.

The base was an experiment and I think it turned out great.
I used some rub on letters that I got in my craft store, and some wood finish. Of course I could just printed on decal paper, but this way its a little bit cheaper.

My new workroom

I was feeling very restless this week, so I decided to work on my workroom : )
I installed some shelves, so now I have more room for kits (you always should be prepared for Winter/Summer Festivals) and I finally build myself a spray booth.
I got all the parts in Menard's (my local hardware store) and it ended up costing me only $15. Can you say "cheap"?
I got a bathroom fan ($9.99) and flexible pipe ($3.69). For the body I used cardboard box ( I will probably replace it later on, but for now it works just fine) and I used one of the air filters that we had laying around in the house.

My new purchases.

While I was away from computer, I received few of my pre-order items.

The most exciting one is twin girls from Rozen Maidens. I wanted that kit from the day it came out, but couldn't afford it. Finally I just couldn't resist. I got it from E2046. The quality is very good. I just hope I could do justice to this kit.

The other kit that I got from E is Carmen. For some reason there is something about her that draws me to her. She is cool. The quality is very good. The only problem that I found was that her whole body is one piece. But is was in the past :) . One evening, I needed some distraction from sanding, so I took a saw and cut her body in half (I have the pictures, so maybe I will do a WIP later)

Last, but not the least is Rin from Fate/Stay Night. She is made by T's System and there is a set of three of the girls. It includes Saber with sword (light), Saber in black dress with sword and lion doll (dark) and Rin in maid outfit. I ordered Sabers from E2046 and received them long long time ago (received and completed), but I had to wait forever for Rin. I ordered Rin from HobbyFan. For the last 4 orders, HF was delivering perfect quality kits, but I guess it couldn't continue forever. The kit have lots of pin holes and 3 parts have been broken (it was super glued before shipping). Still she will be a fun to put together. Plus my Sabers need company :)

I am back !

I have not been blogging for a very long time. For the longest time I couldn't even use my computer. I totally blame my sister :)
My sister came home from her visit to Japan (she was there for a year as exchange student) and pretty much made a mess out of my organized life. I couldn't use computer, because she was always occupying it. She would make a mess in the house and for some reason I had to clean it. If you have younger sisters, don't you just love them?
The only good thing that came out of my sisters visit is that I got to hide out in my basement and work on my kits.
Sorry Misato-chan that I didn't answer your tag. If you are still interested, let me know.
