Bright ideas

So, I’ve got it in my head that I need to make these playscale scenes.  For a long time I bemoaned the fact that I can’t draw, at least not the way I’d like to, and so I can’t make this graphic novel that’s been kicking around in my head forever.

Since I’ve discovered BJDs and fashion dolls and the like, the wheels have started to turn.  Then I decided that even though I couldn’t draw the images I wanted, I could try to customize dolls to fit the characters and then?  I don’t know.  Maybe I’m just looking for another way to pass the time.  Who knows.  It’s actually not an easy task to figure out a way to customize dolls to fit characters you have only ever seen in your head.  Maybe I’m a giant nerd (I know I am actually) but I think it’s a cool idea.

Now I’ve got it in my head that I need to create a room box that is a portion of a nightclub from this story I have held onto for years.  Of course I do.  I have no idea what I’m doing but like I said before, when has that ever stopped me?  It would be a good idea to move from the planning and ideas in my head to actual construction.

I’ll freely admit I’m slightly intimidated to go to the hardware store to pick up the wood I need.  I would love to have someone who has wood working experience go in with me.  But ultimately I’ll probably just make my mother come with me so I’m not alone.  I really want to start on the house, as exciting as the bar is, the house supplies need to be bought so that the house is completed in the next few months and I have somewhere to start storing the stuff I have.

It’s been really really  hard to find supplies in the size I need.  Apart from Ebay and Etsy, I’m fairly out of luck and sometimes the cost of shipping makes it so I just can’t justify a purchase.  That leaves me with needing to make stuff on my own and I’m back to where I was before with very little information out there on how to.  If I manage to put things together and it’s not a total disaster I will be writing up tutorials and posting them here.  No one should have to go through this much frustration.
