Yellow Eyeshadow Rarely Pays Off Anyway...
Okay Okay let's see....
2008, Peter Sollett
This is a terribly sweet film, in that it feels real and funny and painfully familiar to anyone who's ever been both madly in love with someone, and madly in love with music. I actually like Michael Cera in this, his awkwardness is endearing and appropriate and part of the world he is put in, as opposed to Juno, where it just felt like a gimmick (and I loved Juno. But you have to agree, some things felt quirky just for the sake of being quirky). Kat Dennings is perfect as the girl who is so used to being overlooked, and Tris...well, let's just say I saw more than one perfectly sane guy friend become a blithering idiot for that cheating ho of a girl during highschool years.
I'd almost lost my faith in the genre, I really had, the last good teen movie that had any sort of HEART was Can't Hardly Wait, in my opinion. Then Juno and this gem came along and made it in the mainstream. Now, if all those cheerleader flicks can start bombing, balance may yet return to the Force.
Creative things! I haven't made jewelry in a while, there's a lot going on. I have started customizing my Blythe though, and that's an enjoyable hobby. This is for those out of the loop, my friends who collect as well, you can go about your business. I enjoy documenting projects!
One of the big reasons people like Blythe is because she's perfect for customization. There are individuals who will buy her for the sole purpose of photography, and/or turning her into a piece of art. Seriously, browse the interwebz and you will see just how creative people get. Me, I am a beginner! And today I successfully sand-matted my girl.
What sand-matting is.
This is how a Blythe face looks to start.
Even with my fuzzy camera phone, you can see how shiny the plastic is.
Not good for photos, and not a good base for custom paint/pastels.
With paper protecting her eye-mechanism, I fear that poor Cici looks like
The Corinthian! O_o
her yellow eyeshadow and blush are gone,
And I can now create my own custom face!
Now, I do believe I desire another avocado sandwich....omnomnom....
