A bit of unfortunate news... As I had feared/suspected, my silicone has gone bad, so I had to order some new. Unfortunately this will delay the giveaway I had wanted to do... πŸ˜₯Maybe I will make it on my birthday in November now πŸ˜‰ For now, here’s a preview of the different horns and attachments I made! Oni horns, unicorn horn, demon horns, and a big ol’ forehead eyeball πŸ˜‚ The eye will be painted and domed like an actual resin eye too! 😊 .

Things on sticks, plus a very messy desk πŸ˜… Still working hard to hopefully have things ready to show on Halloween! Got my new resin + pigments in the mail the other day, should have checked my silicone too, hope it’s still okay πŸ˜•

GENERAL ANNOUNCEMENTS:
(Sorry if this turns into a long post! I just wanted to say a few things πŸ’•)
First, I just wanted to say THANK YOU to everyone who is paying off or completed payment for the first Viola order. You guys have been so great, I am so thankful to have such courteous and responsible, kind and lovely buyers! πŸ˜ŠπŸ’–πŸ’•
Connected to that - a lot of people have asked about sales of leftover/cancelled Viola orders. Currently, it doesn't look like any orders will be cancelled, but IF it happens, I will open up a lottery type sale, so that everyone interested will have a fair chance. I would make a bunch of announcements on social media/summerbird website/email list, so don't worry about missing it if it happens.
Last, I just want to let people who ordered know that it is possible to add faceup/blushing to your order if you changed your mind, just let me know. Also, I ordered extra heel feet and head parts, so those who didn't have them in their order can add them, again just contact me. For those who missed the first preorder, I'll be selling the extra parts on the website after I have them in hand.
Again, I just want to say thank you for all of your support and love for my first preorder! 😊So far it has been wonderful, I hope everything will go smoothly going forward and I can get your new dolls to you ASAP!
P.S. Remember to keep an eye out on Haru's Flickr for casting updates! πŸ˜„πŸ’•

Shiny cat eyes, anyone? 😺I managed to find some ridiculously tiny navettes with an AB finish! They fit so nicely in a 6mm iris ✨ Excited to try these out, but I have to actually finish sculpting the eye bases first =____=
