New Doll Name Question

I recently got this cute bat boy BJD. Just got his wig (was not expecting him to be a readhead), added new red wings and still hav body blush and other other things to do on him, but I want oppinions on names. I thought I was going to call him Pip, and still like it, but was wondering if Vlad would be beter. What do you all think?

New Boy

In spite of my trying not to buy anymore BJDs, I found this little guy and had to have him. He is a Bat boy, so naturally I needed to have him. He is a Soom Teenie Gem and is 10 inches tall and neds hair and faceup etc. I think his name is Pip!

Not Working Out

Well, I started this before Pennsic and loved how it was going. I had a clear idea of what I wanted to do and was frustrated that I had to wait 2 weeks to continue working on it. Well, the background developed as I expected, but my "world" just don't look as I want. I also had to change things on the figure but still not getting the look I want. So any thoughts or ideas on this would be appreciated.

Another Pennsic Over

It was a rainy war and I was restricted because of my heart surgery, but overall it went well. I sold less originals than usual but still made a decent amount.

It was an odd war, many people, especially other merchants used just the same word as I did. odd.

I had bad news when I got home, Paul Jeffrey a friend and art patron passed away while I was at Pennsic. He owned my "Hern, Lord of the Green" picture and commissioned a "Winter Hern", which was pict up at war for him and he never got to see the original (he did see a picture of it). I hope the art he bought from me goes to people who appreciate it as much as I know he did.

He will be missed.

Pennsic is a different world and there are people I count as near family who I only see once a year at War. So many came by and asked about my health and asked if I needed anything and offered help and support. I appreciated it all.

The shop stayed 90% dry and no art was lost to water or anything else this year. Hope I can do as well next year.

Off To War Again

I will be gone for 2 weeks starting tomorrow. Hope to sell lots of art and have fun while not over doing it (Heart surgery was only May 31st and I am still on restrictions).

See you when I get back.
