Finally, some much needed doll time! I’ve started on Rynn’s scales. They look rough right now but the final product WILL BE GORGEOUS. I also have the means to make iridescent scales, but they will be in the red/scarce orange hues. They would have came out a little more cleaner if my hands had not been shaking so badly, that and the tool I am using is not meant for the curves of a doll. PITA.


the waitomo caves of new zealand’s northern island, formed two million years ago from the surrounding limestone bedrock, are home to a endemic species of bioluminescent fungus gnat (arachnocampa luminosa, or glow worm fly) who in their larval stage produce silk threads from which to hang and, using a blue light emitted from a modified excretory organ in their tails, lure in prey who then become ensnared in sticky droplets of mucus.
