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 firstname.lastname@example.org 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.
I got the face-up previews for the new samples! Hopefully they’ll be ready soon!
Sorry for the delay on the Mini-Machina open orders! The casting studio is backed up
and there were more delays than I expected!
(pictures are my personal casts I sent off for procast in January!)
Pre-orders for Delta and the new head, Blip, will open up at the
end of April for certain.
I should have the samples with me at the Korean Ball Jointed Doll Show
in LA! It’s April 24-26th at the Westin Hotel.
(I wasn’t going to be able to go, but I got some help and now I can!)
You’ll be able to see Orpheus and St. George in person as well as some other goodies!
<3 <3 <3 <3
Additionally, if you want a Gamma, please get one soon! There’s only a couple left.
I will actually be adding my few remaining stock of gray Gamma and Epsilons up for grabs.
Once they’re gone they’re gone.
It’s pretty unlikely that I’ll be doing another
release of the machina boys any time soon!
Wow! Well, getting these two done has been a wild ride! Between mold problems at home and abroad, shipping fiascos and some personal strife, all culminating in these two arriving the day before I flew out for the holidays, they’re finally ready for pre-order!
Pre-order period is now extended till Febuary 15th! :D
Please welcome them home!
So I had originally planned to have these two out in October. Let me tell you a story.
It’s a story about how the best laid plans can go all wrong. And oh how wrong they went.
The short story is that we had a lot of trouble getting these guys through production. The normal turn around time is one month, however, there were mold problems, a head melted on the way to the casting studio, and all kinds of other shenanigans that I hope never happen again. Meanwhile back stateside, the lid to my pressure pot broke(the handle actually) and had to go in for repairs. :/ And some internet harassment, recasting emergencies, and classes I’m taking for my day job(that I had committed to before all this happened).
If I knew it was going to take this long, I’d have scheduled all this very differently!
As is, I’m going to still HOPE to have these two ready for pre-order by Christmas.
The next mini-machina release, however, is going to be pushed back to February. Besides the reasoning that I can’t handle doing two orders at once, I am still working on a new head! I have two I’ve done and are in non-pressurized molds now to do test casts and test face-ups. I’ve also got the cat ears, which will replace the helmet, curing on my desk right now!
So that’s where things stand now! The next Mini will be either pink or gray and she’ll run the same $325 as the previous run.
I’ll update here when I get the samples of the boys in! I am so sorry for how long this has taken and I hope there’s still interest in them when they come out!
Well, technically two since there are two faces to choose from but I’m still working on the second face!
Orpheus, the face seen here, is the first large scale doll I’ve done in years. YEARS.
I’ve been limiting myself to the more cost and space effective region of 42cm and smaller…
but I really wanted to make a larger boy. So here he is! I’m super excited about him.
I won’t have an exact price or color selection until closer to October when I get the quote from the casting company for him.
Since he’s a new size I’m not sure how expensive production will be for him. I’m estimating in the $500-600 range.
Palest pale is a go, but I’m debating on natural or gray as the alternative color! Depending on the interest in him, I may only do a small run of 30.
If you’re interested in him, please chime in and let me know!
