1/4th Scale Miniature Scale Mail Bikini Top by Slersk
1/4th Scale Miniature Scale Mail Bikini Top
I found some super tiny scale mail on the Ring Lord website and decided to give some miniature pieces a try. This is the first prototype for a scale mail bikini top for a MSD ball jointed doll. These dolls are about 1/4th scale to human size.


This project took about 7 hours, but I was teaching myself as I went along so I imagine as I get better at this process that future bikini tops wont take as long. The most difficult part was adding stabilizing rings to the bottom edges of the triangles as, as this scale, the rings are so small that they are barely wide enough to hold the extra rings and the scales at the same time. If I can get the hang of this in a more timely manner, I will offer some of these in my shop when I am ready to re-open it. As for now, though, I have barely enough time to get prototypes and chores done while working full time and school is starting this next week so who knows if I'll be able to get much else made.

Here Danny is modeling for me, Daenerys is an Iplehouse Cecile head on a Doll Legend MSD body. I made her yarn dread wig, all her jewelry and her velvet skirt myself. Her eyes are custom made from: www.safrindoll.com/ Her face up and body blushing were done by TatsuKitty from Den of Angels.

Miniature Scale Mail Prototype WIP by Slersk

I found some super tiny scale mail on the Ring Lord website and decided to give some miniature pieces a try. This is the first prototype for a scale mail bikini top for a MSD ball jointed doll. These dolls are about 1/4th scale to human size and you can see in the picture how small these scales are compared to small and regular sized pliers.

New Life Close Up by Slersk
New Life Close Up
This is the first of three projects I completed for my sculpture class this semester.

Made entirely from plaster and painted with acrylics, this is a piece of wet driftwood with a small suculent plant growing out of it.

OMG THIS TOOK FOREVER. Carving the driftwood took about 15 hours and then carving the tiny leaves (which had to be done individually and then glued together because of the nature of plaster) took about 12 hours. I also made a "wet sand" base with mdf, spray adhesive and sand from my yard(took another 2 hours), but placing the piece out in the sand itself is a way better way of displaying this piece.


Anyway, the driftwood is supposed to symbolize how I view myself; it's been on a long journey, it's worn and weary, but still has some natural beauty and can be very strong and useful. The succulent symbolizes the new beginnings I have been struggling to make as I've moved across the country and started a new school and new life here in Corpus Christi.
It's been a struggle for me as my new school only accepted some of my credits and has different core requirements so I basically wasted two years going to school and have to take another two years here instead. As well, I've bounced through three different jobs here before finally finding one that works for me, so that was stressful. On top of that it's been really difficult for me to make friends here as the majority of the people who live in this area are of very different backgrounds/political alignments and have very different interests than I do.

We've finally made it into a house of our own!

I am very happy to finally be done moving and staying at friends' houses. Corpus Christi is gorgeous and the puppies are very happy to be out of all the bad weather up north.

There's tons of work to do on the house though, as the previous owners left the place a mess. We've made some progress in cleaning up the inside and in removing over grown plants from the yard. There's a list of things that still need done about two pages long though.

I start classes in May at Texas A&M and am very excited to get started as the classes I get to take are so awesome. I will post more about that later at the end of the month when I've registered for my classes.

Munchkin has healed very well from the last time she hurt her back. In fact, because of how nice the weather is here, she's been getting more consistent exercise and is probably in the best shape she's ever been in since she was a puppy.

Wiggles is also doing great still! She isn't coughing much at all anymore, going for days or weeks at a time without breathing problems. :)

I gave Molly a bath yesterday in our back yard with a water hose! It was Molly's first time to have a bath with a water hose, but she handled it pretty well. I think she may have even enjoyed it. It took half as long as it does in the bath tub and it was a bright sunny day so she didn't even get too cold.

I will post a few pictures here and there of the puppies and of our progress, but I am going to be super busy for a long time so most of my arts and crafts projects will be on hold or will be completed more slowly. I will also not be able to spend as much time online so I've had to trim my watch list a bit so that it will be easier to sift through my updates less often. I apologize to anyone I've had to remove, and wish you all well, but I'm afraid real life trumps cyber space any day.:P

Hope everyone is doing well!!
