It’s been a while since I updated here! I think it’s the reoccurring theme of all individual artists that we run out of time for ourselves and our websites suffer. I’ve started to sell everything in batches through my Etsy page. I’ll try to continue announce pre-orders and doll specs as well as galleries here. Left over dolls from pre-orders will get listed every now and again and the shop on Etsy will be opened again. So don’t be discouraged if the shop is empty or on vacation. You can always reach me through email or through the message system on etsy itself.
This has been an incredibly stressful year for my family. I’ve lost two of my grandparents, one of which my whole world was built around, my sib lost students in a school shooting, my job ramped up to release the biggest game I’ve ever worked on, I’ve had the flu twice, and the stomach flu, two sinus infections and two bad colds. We may also lose one of our cats before the year is out. Thankfully a long vacation that I planned before the shit hit the fan is coming up and I can hopefully relax and sleep and regroup!
I also got a new 3d printer and my glowforge laser cutter finally came in after two years of waiting! Both of these will make the doll making easier since I won’t have to outsource my fine 3d prints nor will I have to order custom cardboard inserts like i have in the past.
My plans for the coming year are to do a release of Clever Little with new knees and possibly shoe feet and maybe a new head and do a round of Mini-Machinas if I can. A small order of Dark Elves went out and should be here in February.
I’m also hoping to be able to release Clever, a 65cm version of Clever Little. I’m still working out some of the kinks on him, many of which I’ve found since i cast him, sadly, haha! right now I’m working on getting better mobility in his hips and adjusting his head and neck size so his proportions are visually closer to the Clever Little. It’s funny how something stylized works at a small size, but the larger you make it, the more your brain wants things to be closer to realistic proportions.
You can catch me and get updates any time on my instagram! I also sometimes will release custom ordering periods for hand cast dolls, so it’s definitely the place to watch.
I attended Yaoicon last weekend and it was so much fun! Had a lot of interested in the dolls and met some really great people! Hope to do it again next year! Many thanks to my lovely assistant Bailey for helping me table and to the Yaoicon staff for all their hard work!
In good news, the Unicorn Boys and the Prince of Evening are all finished! I will have casts available to sell during the next shop fill on Saturday 10/1/16 along with some pre-orders for Clever Little! I’ll also be attending Resin Hearts in San Jose on October 22! If you’re in the area please stop by and see us all! Should be a great time! I’ll be bringing a lot of my doll furniture and back drops for everyone to take photos of their dolls on as well!
In not so happy news, I will no longer be taking regular orders. My full time job takes up a lot of my time and head space. I’m having more and more trouble keeping orders straight when I pack unless I am doing them en masse. So from now on ordering will be handled by pre-order, at cons, or in week long shop fills on my Etsy site. After a week, I will close orders and re-load them during the next shop fill. Next shop fill is 10/1/16!

Pre-order will be open for a month.
Layaway is available on a first come, first serve, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you’d like to set one up.

Finally! I’ve been working on these guys the entire summer! They’re 1:6 scale and go well in playscale environments. You can stash them in a purse and carry them anywhere! I like to pretend their little elven princes and I’ve got a whole head canon for them. That’s the danger of doll making, you start making worlds too, then you want to build tiny sets and annoy your family.
They’re available in three skin tones. Right now I have 15 total dolls, five of each skin tone. If I get more orders than that I will be happy to expand the order, however, i need to know soon! They’re already in production and being cast!
Hey guys! If you ever order something and get either no confirmation from me and/or receive no tracking number from me within 24 hours, please please let me know! You can email me at batchix at yahoo.com or batchix at gmail.com (or contact me through here, instagram, flickr, doa, dA, ect) or you can comment here! I’ve been getting a lot of weird spam, so if you don’t see your comment post right away that’s why… I’ve got a spam filter that’s supposed to weed it out but it seems to be not working anymore.
You are ALWAYS welcome to message me to get an update on an order, anything you’ve seen me working on, or on pre-order status or if you just have a general question about doll making. I am more than happy to help!
And if you have any problems with your order, please, please let me know so I can make it right.
Hey all! If you ordered a MM this order, I put the eyes, the magnets, a few sparkly hearts and COA’s in little bags. Unfortunately the bags had a hard time closing around the COA’s and the accessories have fallen out of some of them. Please check through your boxes to make sure you got everything! I’ve ordered much larger bags for next time. <3
All but a few of the dolls have been sent! Please email me at email@example.com to let me know if you didn’t get an email with your tracking info or if there are any other problems with your order.
Thanks again guys!!
First up, I’m finally auctioning off the OOAK cast of Orpheus. He was a test of using mica powder in my resin to get different effects. Please check him out!
Next update is that the Mini-Machina are still open for pre-order and layaway is available. I’ll be getting the dolls in soon!
I was hoping to tell you that my Dark Elf was going to be releasing, but his head got lost in the mail. ;D; Thankfully I have the original mold and I can just make a new master copy. You can see my handcast on my flickr.
The kitty ears are now available separately if you’d like an extra pair or a pair for a different doll! they’re on Delta and Blip’s pages. If all you’re ordering are Kitty ears, let me know and I can send you a personalized invoice for shipping. <3
Lastly, I’ve added the option to buy the 51cm boy body and 42cm girl body separately. Previously you had to send an email, but now you can just zoom through check out!
In stock at the moment: Orpheus, St. George, and Lagoon in both skin tones.
