It’s been almost a week since I posted anything. (On this blog, anyway.) I feel rather badly about that. It’s not that I don’t have anything to post about; it’s that I haven’t been able to get any pictures taken, what with one thing and another. (Mostly, I don’t seem to have time during daylight, and this place is awful for night photography.)
Anyway, I wanted to post something, so I dug around on the hard drive of this computer and found some old photos of a couple of my PlayArts figures. At the time, I’m pretty sure I had a dialog in mind to go along with these pictures, but I no longer remember what it was. (Basically, I think it was about Rikku’s earnest friendliness, and Paine’s reluctance to open up. Which probably means it was before the game, but…I don’t really remember anymore. That’s why I should write these things down…)
So, here are some now-random photos of the PlayArts figures of Rikku and Paine from Final Fantasy X-2.
I wish I could say my photography skills have gotten better in the three years since I took these photos…
…but I think they’ve actually gotten worse.
I gotta do something about that.
Uh, anyway, changing the subject dramatically, I’ve decided to put off buying a Lammily and the three new types of Barbie bodies. And why, you may ask? Well, because when I went to look at Mattel’s online store, I found that most of the Barbies I wanted with the new body types were listed as either “pre-order” or “coming soon” and when I went to the Lammily site, I found that they’re adding a new doll in May. So I’m definitely waiting at least until the Barbies have moved from “coming soon” to “in stock” and I may or may not wait for the new Lammily. (I’ll have to take a closer look at the difference in the faces, and the hairstyle of the new one, who is either African-American or actually from Africa. (Not sure which; I didn’t really read any of the text on her page other than the release date…) Plus May is pretty far off; I don’t think even the “coming soon” Barbies were going to take that long.)
If I can ever have free time while the sun is out, I have a lot of photography to do, though. I’ve got some new resin stuff, and Barbara has new shoes, and Pyrrha has a new dress, and…well, actually that’s most of it. (Apart from the fact that I still intend to open that Vampire Princess Miyu doll. Oh, and I still want to take photos of my Monster High Greek myth-inspired OCs.)
