Just some quick photos in natural light. I am still puzzling over which colors I actually want to offer. In person, they’re all really gorgeous… the resin is so luminous and silky and the colors are so nuanced. The two on the left weren’t colors I ever intended to sell (they’re for me and consumptivefreak), but in person they’re so pretty… by contrast, the center one (the lighter tan) was my intended “default” but it seems the least interesting. It’s still very lovely and it’s probably a “safe” color for getting orders, but I dunno.
I LOVE the darkest one. I am desperate to get that one done, but I don’t know if I can meet the minimum to break even since the darker color costs a lot extra.
I am not sure about the white-blue one. It’s very very pretty, a lot like milk glass, but I dunno if I want to offer it. In person, the green is a lot more striking than the blue, but I don’t know how many people would want to order a green doll. Unfortunately, it’s more of a numbers game than my personal preference - there are minimum order quantities per color, and I know that the market for these two is very limited.
Also, there is a nice big knocker option. ;)
I really love the icy blue, the minty green, and the darkest brown the best. The other two colors are lovely as well. I can easily envision whole faceups and styling schemes for all the colors, and that’s not something that comes to me naturally!
Will they be at Dollism+NY so I can see them in person? <3 I am delighted by the tiniest possibility of being able to coo over them in person.
Yes, they will be there, at the booth for The Joint! :) I’m not sure which colors will actually end up being offered, but this will help you narrow down which one you want for yours…. that you’ve been waiting forever for… ._.
These things are so cool.
Type of Spirals: A spiral is a curve in the plane or in the space, which runs around a centre in a special way.
Different spirals follow. Most of them are produced by formulas:The radius r(t) and the angle t are proportional for the simplest spiral, the spiral of Archimedes. Therefore the equation is:
(3) Polar equation: r(t) = at [a is constant].
From this follows
(2) Parameter form: x(t) = at cos(t), y(t) = at sin(t),
(1) Central equation: x²+y² = a²[arc tan (y/x)]².
You can make a spiral by two motions of a point: There is a uniform motion in a fixed direction and a motion in a circle with constant speed. Both motions start at the same point.
(1) The uniform motion on the left moves a point to the right. - There are nine snapshots.
(2) The motion with a constant angular velocity moves the point on a spiral at the same time. - There is a point every 8th turn.
(3) A spiral as a curve comes, if you draw the point at every turn(Image).
Figure 1: (1) Archimedean spiral - (2) Equiangular Spiral (Logarithmic Spiral, Bernoulli’s Spiral).
Figure 2 : (1) Clothoide (Cornu Spiral) - (2) Golden spiral (Fibonacci number).
More Spirals: If you replace the term r(t)=at of the Archimedean spiral by other terms, you get a number of new spirals. There are six spirals, which you can describe with the functions f(x)=x^a [a=2,1/2,-1/2,-1] and f(x)=exp(x), f(x)=ln(x). You distinguish two groups depending on how the parameter t grows from 0.
Figure 4: If the absolute modulus of a function r(t) is increasing, the spirals run from inside to outside and go above all limits. The spiral 1 is called parabolic spiral or Fermat’s spiral.
Figure 5: If the absolute modulus of a function r(t) is decreasing, the spirals run from outside to inside. They generally run to the centre, but they don’t reach it. There is a pole. Spiral 2 is called the Lituus (crooked staff).

Spiral compulsion. But this is a handy reference.
why does this give me intense feels
I think my selfie problem is getting out of hand..
This deserves at least a thousand notes !!
the last one
Hey everyone. I just got this vulture in. Haven’t done an exam on him yet (waiting on an extra pair of hands) but it sounds like he was grounded in a neighborhood in Greenville for about 5 days. He will most likely require care from someone who knows more about vultures. The problem is, we cannot afford to transport this guy right now. We need help! Many of you know that we do this work voluntarily and pay for everything out of pocket. If you can, please consider donating to our rescue! This vulture really needs your help! You can donate any amount of money through Paypal, to the email address: email@example.com!
If all of my followers donated just 50 cents it would be more than enough to pay for this bird to get the help he needs! Please donate!
Thank you to everyone who reblogged!
Unfortunately we have still only received $3 to help this guy out!
This is not enough to get the vulture the care he needs! Please help!
I was finally able to do an examination on him and discovered a compound fracture in his left wing elbow joint. This is a serious injury - especially since it is 5 days old now, and he is severely emaciated because of it!
Listen guys, I know it isn’t the usual ‘cute’ animal that is fun to reblog and support. Like a kitten or a dog. But every animal deserves a happy, healthy live. this guy is suffering with pain and starvation and he needs help.
Reblog and donate if you can. It won’t even take that much.
If you can, please help or signal boost. Vultures are true sweeties and need help, too!
If you look at the fact that you have a roof over your head, food to eat, that you are young and beautiful and live in a peaceful land, then no, you have nothing to be sad about. But the fact is, we are not only a physical body, we have souls too, and sometimes our souls get sick. If you break a leg you don’t just say ‘I have no reason to have a broken leg’ and ignore it; you seek help. It’s the same when your soul gets hurt. Don’t apologize for being sad.
The Rose of Jericho [VIDEO] is a species of desert moss that has the amazing ability to ‘resurrect’ itself after bouts of extreme dehydration lasting months or even years. After just a few hours of exposure to moisture the plants burst to life, uncurling from a tight ball of dry leaves to a green flower-like shape. Videographer Sean Steininger shot this timelapse of several plants as he exposed them to water.
well that was inspiring
