Hard at Work by kayanah
Hard at Work
Yeah, that's me, working on my Edoras Pillars. The gloves I wear are so not to look cool, even if they do, lol. They help feeling a little less pain. So, that's how I work. I have an old card table near my computer desk, so I can go to reference pictures or just take a break on the computer just by turning my chair.

I've had that tool for a while, but only just found out how to use it to its full potential...and how to make it work. I tried using it before but could not make it really work. But since I really wanted to carve patterns on those pillars and not just paint them, I stubbornly managed to make it work, lol.

The lamp looks like it lights my face more than it does the wood piece, lol. It's not the case. I do not have much light in my room so the lamp is VERY useful.

There's not much room but I make use of what I have the best I can! :)

Edoras Pillars WIP #1 by kayanah
Edoras Pillars WIP #1
Some of you already know I love Lord of the Rings and some others know that I have been working on making doll costumes inspired by the movies'. I have been working on some Eowyn costumes, but I do not yet have the doll that will be her (waiting for it anxiously). So, since I want some kind of decor to shoot picture of the doll in her costumes when I have her, I had that CRAZY idea to make a couple of pillars we can see on top of Edoras' hill, in Rohan. Yes...crazy!

I did not work with knotworks in quite some time, but I managed to reproduce them quite nicely. Not 100% identical, but they are close enough to make me proud of my work. :)

Next step will be to carve all of the knots... Did I say it was a crazy idea yet? CRAZY! My hands are already protesting, lol. Oh well...

I do not know how much time it will take me to do those, but one thing for sure, I will be happy with myself once they are done and my doll will have a nice decor to pose in when she arrives! ^^

CRAZY!!!!! And so much fun! :D

Hello Followers!

You probably noticed that, lately, I've been making doll costumes inspired by Lord of the Rings, well, I'm still doing that as we speak, lol. I want to make Arwen and Eowyn's costumes from the trilogy, but I also want to make costumes from other movies. I need to work with the stuff I already have at home, or that I can find in online store that accepts paypal since I do not have a credit card, but even then I try not to buy to much stuff and I cannot find exactly what I want most of the time anyway. Oh well...

I am looking for bright red velvet or some kind of polyester looking like velvet. Not easy, especially when I can't have the fell of the fabrics between my fingers. I really want to go to fabric stores, but these days everyone is too busy to take me there (I do not have a car and neither does my mom, so...). And taking a Taxi just to go to the store would be a little overkill, especially since we need to keep taxi money for emergencies and doctor appointments.

So far, I have 4 or 5 projects in mind for which I am 95% I have all that I require to make them (the last 5% is for bad surprises that may occur during projects, lol). Can't be 100% sure of anything, lol.

My health isn't so great these days, but keeping busy helps a lot.
This week has been hard on us because we had tons of appointments and errands to run (mom and I). So, that took its toll on my body and right now I could use some well earned rest, but...can't...I mean, I COULD, but not doing anything seems impossible for me. HAVE....TO....KEEP....BUSY! lol
Mini Dresses on mini Hangers by kayanah
Mini Dresses on mini Hangers
This was just too cute not to share.

My mother wanted to help me with my mini doll costumes and so she pressed/ironed that dress (which comes in two parts). Mom usually hangs what she irons on hangers on the shower pole. She found my mini hangers and just hung the dress there while I was asleep. When I saw that I though that, somehow, my mini love has either been transferred to her...or my mini love comes from her from the beginning!

That picture of me there shows me as a 3 year old (maybe a little younger even) who doesn't want to sleep and wants to do craft! I began pretty young! lol

What you need to know about me is that I'm in love with anything miniature! I love writing also! Love soundtracks and Viggo Mortensen's work (not only his acting, but his poems and photographs).

Favorite movies are; LOTR trilogy, Dune, Restoration (with Robert Downey Jr, a must see)!

Hey there! :)
Thank you for submitting your awesome Doll House to our gallery! :D
Just for future reference, we do have a 'Handmade' folder, so that's where this sort of thing would go, rather than Misc.
Thanks! :dance:
