Studio135 "GQ" - First Looks

Some work in progress pics for my "GQ" from Studio135. I had sold a CFX "Derek" mask, and I'm planning a similar hair design and skintone for this one. (for a review of that mask, see here)

Fresh out of the mold... (but I DO miss Bryan's old-school molded chest bib)

Next step: Paint. 


 Final Step: Off to Jerry Almond for hairing!

Another year, another dumpster fire...

Well dear readers, we're at the end of 2021 and this year has had some aspects that were even worse than 2020. Supply chain. Inflation. Lockdowns. Crime. Fortunately, I've been healthy, as well as those around me.

I apologize for not being more prolific this year (only 3 posts), but I haven't really been in the mindset to write any fiction. I am expecting a new mask from Studio135 but due to production issues, I'm not going to receive it until after the new year. A review will be forthcoming when I finally get it.

I've also decided to move out of NYC, though the timing is yet to be determined. I have responsibilities here that prevent me from moving away, but once those are gone, I'll be able to leave. I just can't stand being here any longer; the pandemic really did it for me. That's also another reason for the dearth of entries - in anticipation of moving, I've been clearing out a lot of furnishings (and gear) that I didn't use or could potentially raise issues during a move and this ongoing cleanout has been sometimes traumatic - and always depressing. The good news is that I'll probably save some money on moving expenses.

And I have to admit that I did have a lot of stuff - I was more into collecting than extensively using - so all in all, the cleanout has been a good thing.

So on behalf of my characters, my alter-egos, and myself, I wish all of you a Happy and Healthy 2022 and hoping everything starts getting back to normal!

Who's Who? (New!)

Can you pick out the Converted officers from the Four-One?


 ... or who REALLY won the Musclemania "physique model" group competition??

 


or perhaps who did this COVID-19 public service announcement?
