      I bought Cherry Milk's Re:Zero Rem maid outfit from Mandarake.  It includes everything you'd want, minus the wig, eyes and shoes.  I dressed Aoi up in it, mostly to check it out and see the fit. I'm pretty pleased.  Not sure which headsculpt would work best for Rem yet.

      Tama: "I'm all done making my gyoza. Can I have some thing to cover them with so they won't dry out before dinner?" Tama: "I like the size of these noodles but I think we need to make more." Mommy: "You do realize they are going to expand once they cook don't you?" Tama: "Yah but we need make lots so I can have yummy soup if I get sick." Mommy: "You never get sick. You would just want to pretend you are sick so you could snuggle in bed and have someone cook for you, letting you be really spoiled." Tama: "Maybe..." 😁 ~~~~~ Really exhausted from playing with various egg noodle doughs today trying to figure out what one works best and if any could be used for gyoza. Tried some the other day without eggs and just used water and they failed completely as noodles. I was expecting more of the same today. Brown rice flour makes decent noodles but would not hold together for shaping the gyoza. Garbanzo/chickpea flour worked for both but always makes a strangely firm noodle no matter how it's cooked. But the red lentil flour (in the pics above) works brilliantly and very close to the texture of wheat noodles. I was really expecting that one to fail. I've missed gyoza a whole lot so I'm just delighted that the lentils worked far better then I ever expected. Plus they are color-change noodles. Uncooked red lentils are reddish-orange but turn yellow once cooked. As usual Tama has been delighted that we have been able to work on food, even if it is time consuming. Plus making MDD sized real food is just fun. I honestly didn't think I would be able to make Tama sized gyoza. I used an old gallon milk jug lid to cut out the circles (I use a wide mouth canning jar ring for the full-sized ones in the background) and cut out the center so the dough was easier to pop out. Even if I could cut them out I was highly doubtful if I could fill it, let alone getting the folds in properly. I keep cracking up that it's possible. We won't know until later if they cook properly or not, but it made me really happy getting a pic of Tama with his gyoza. It has been really fun doing some small cooking projects with him since he was always my little helper in the kitchen. Food updates may not be thrilling to anyone else but for me it is helping me connect with Tama in ways that have been vacant the last two years and in turn not make all the DD stuff not feel so overwhelming. And being able to share the photos here like I used to makes me really happy as well. I hope I remember to take a pic of Tama holding one of his gyoza so the scale is easier to see properly. They are tiny compared to the full sized ones. ~SK

      Ah, well that is the only Saber I personally own so that was based on my personal knowledge about Saber’s bust size. My apologies about the info concerning the large bust (unless it is a Saber Extra version, that is 😉).  Take care and thanks

      Adobe photo downloader is better for camera import, which is why I used to use Bridge for importing and organizing. In photo downloader you could define a root folder, and create a naming convention for subfolders, create an automatic backup copy to a separate location, convert one of the copies to dng with the original raw embedded in it on the fly. In lightroom you can only do some of that if you convert to dng during import, and embedding the original raw file isn't an option. You can import with Bridge, and then import to lightroom using convert to DNG. That opens up a bunch of options for file storage. AFAIK there is nothing to prevent you from selecting an external drive as a path, but lightroom's database only has one path. You aren't stuck with the original structure, but you do have to move files from inside lightroom so it can keep the metadata linked. When I first got CC back in 2013 I picked up a book that went in depth into setting up Bridge and Lightroom. Both are pretty powerful, but the file import / metadata / collections elements take a lot of pre-config. The import features aren't consistent between the two, which is a bit annoying. I can understand them differing where app features differ, but I don't understand why lightroom lacks a checkbox for embed original raw file in your dng. It's been 5 years and still no checkbox. The cool thing about collections is that I could put a photo into multiple collections for organization. I can have an Iori Minase collection that has solo photos, but photos with Iori & Yayoi could be in a collection Iori Minase photos & one for Yayoi photos. I just find it so cumbersome to use I never bother. IIRC someone is doing a kickstarter for a hardware device that does that. They raised like 3 million for development. We'll see if it ever materializes though. One feature I found in lightroom that I really like is the virtual clone feature. A single raw file can have be "cloned" with its develop settings intact and then you can change the develop settings to achieve a different result while still only having the single raw file on your drive. That's nice for systems with SSD drives.

      hello again! I was hoping I could get some more advice? The doll arrived at the proxy (zenmarket) and I opted for the 1k repacking fee, but to my horror this raised the shipping to 10k. I messaged them about it and they can repack it but it'll cost another 1k and I'm worried they'll use flimsy packaging. Does anyone have any advice, I'm not sure what to risk? I am already estimating the custom fee to be about £150 and I overpaid for her in the first place so it feels like a kick in the teeth to pay this much in shipping when it would originally have been about 4k. Seriously regretting not being able to get her from the international volks site in the first place, it would have saved me hundreds 😞
