Recently managed to get a hold of Volks’ Lady Thief outfit for Horo, along with a tiny scale chair from Volks USA, specifically the “Shibata Chair No.5 Leather Chair (Burgundy) they need chair in the name twice. Their shipping prices are astronomical… But here we are. Additionally, I learned a valuable life lesson, I learned how to sew buttons on.
I admit, I’ve gotten carried away with filters in some of these images, but they’re fun, and Instagram has ruined me for marriage. But at least some of them are normal right?!
The chair has proven itself to be quite handy. It was rather annoying setting up the stand so I frequently just left Horo sitting wherever was handy, and often this freaked me out. I’d forget I put Horo down somewhere turn and AHHH!! How’d she get there?! Oh right, I put her there.
Perhaps the abuse from the trip to Colorado is the culprit, though I think it’s just cheap workmanship, but the buttons started falling off the coat I’d bought Horo. I wanted to use the coat for some fall photos up at Cleveland’s House as I was headed up there at the time. My options were either YouTube a how-to and buy the materials, or ask my mother, as I’d be stopping in at her place along the way. I opted to ask my Mom how to do it, which was a little bit awkward for me I admit. While she’d seen Horo and even moved her around to make her look as though she was tucking me in or watching over me as I slept. I still wondered how it’d be perceived, so much so I’d considered bringing a pair of my own pants to learn on so that it wouldn’t seem too weird for me to ask. In the end I should have known better, she was more than happy to help, super glad I asked, and loved the little clothing. Still, she wonders why I like ‘them’, where ‘them’ is dolls and anime figures bunched together, but gets a kick out of the fact I do despite it.
In the end, it rained the whole time at Cleveland’s House and I didn’t get any photos at all. Disappointing weekend in that regard. But I did learn how to sew on buttons, and had to sew some more on that coat once I got home, the ones I’d put on were good and tight, but the ones I had not, were starting to go, so I just did ’em all.
