I always was an "out of the box" thinker. It caused me a lot of troubles in my life when I had to fit in, but I was able to take a full advantage when I joined LARP community and later used my skills for doll crafts.
I created a plenty of tutorials since I joined BJD hobby in 2009. Maybe you've already seen some of my stuff even not knowing it's mine, as some files were reposted many times with my copyrights removed.
Here are the resources where you can study my experience on various sides of our diverse hobby.
These tutorials are very detailed with 100+ hi-res photos in each tutorial, supporting each step of the process. A lot of tips and how-tos are included: these are mostly developed by me out of my experience. Available in my Shop:
You'll find a lot of useful tips and how-tos in these articles, for free! There are posts about sewing, shoemaking, BJD faceups, furniture making, decorating & painting, jewelry making, hat making, and many other stuff.
I share a lot of my knowledge on my Patreon as well. There are posts about sewing, shoemaking, BJD faceups, furniture making, decorating & painting, jewelry making, hat making, and many other stuff. I do posts on the interesting commissions that I receive, and on my own complex projects: one or several posts per one project. I started posting on my Patreon in 2019, and I make at least two posts in a month.
There are also guide posts: each post is dedicated to a certain matter. Here are the most important ones:
Making painted eyeballs for BJD doll tutorial - a step by step guide on making a realistically looking eyeballs that don't require casting - only paints
Making Indian Wedding Sherwani or Pheta Turban hat tutorial - a detailed tutorial on making an ethnic hat on a felt base: about 50 photos of the process
Most of the posts are free, and each new post is available only to patrons for 2 weeks, then it's available to everyone too.
