New Year Hanbok

It’s been a while since I’ve done any doll stuff to post! My play time has been all BDO and D&D since my last post. Then at the end of December I hurt my neck and shoulder badly, and couldn’t grind at all. I blame the Archer. -_- His crossbow was better than his longbow, so I tried to stay in pre-Awakening most of the time. That meant lots of Shift-W and Shift-Space. Although I do use a game pad (wouldn’t be able to game without it, as my keyboard is in Dvorak layout), all that Shift was constant use of the left little finger, one of my problem fingers. Lying down made annoying waves of pain in the left triceps area, so I had to sleep on the sofa curled up on a slanted sofa pillow.

My setup: Belkin n52te gamepad and Kinesis Advantage2 ergonomic keyboard

I’m feeling better and was able to grind on Valk for an hour yesterday; the first time I tried since December. But I’ll not grind on Archer, ever again!

In January one of the BDO fashions inspired me to sew again. ^ㅂ^

Imbrien girls celebrate Seollal

Kira has been spending a lot of time in Heidel lately, but went back to her home in Calpheon to celebrate the Lunar New Year with her little sister Tessa. They don’t have any other family in the Republic of Calpheon, so it was a small celebration with just the two of them.

Traditionally only male relatives call on the spirits of the ancestors. But an exception is made for those like Tessa, who can feel the presence of spirits and hear them speak. Continue reading “New Year Hanbok”

Pure Suit, White Robe

From the Department of Redundancy Department: these are a couple of Rappelz costumes that I made before starting this website.

Kira models a Pure Suit, for Rank 2 (“R2”) Hunter. Deva Warriors can wear Hunter clothes because there is no Hunter class for the Deva race. The turquoise edges are bias tape, useful for tiny sewing.



Tessa wears a White Robe, made for a Rank 2 Cleric. The indigo fabric here is bias tape, and the fasteners are mini brads from the scrapbooking aisle.


Though R2 is low level, these are some of my favourite outfits in the game. If I like an outfit in an MMO, my character will keep a copy after having “outgrown” it in level, to wear around town.  (^^;)
