tsubasahome: (custom doll)

When's the last time I typed in LJ? When's the last time I even checked my friends list?

Still working on a lot of commissions. I can't complain...I need the money, LOL! Plus I get to try out dolls/hairstyles I never got around to doing myself. I'm still waffling over whether or not I ever want to get my own Ever After High doll. On one hand, I think the heads are too round and the lack of forehead makes a lot of hairstyles look less than flattering...on the other hand, I like the range of "normal" skin colors compared to Monster High, and the body sculpt is a little better. Hmmm...maybe one or two, in the future...

Lauren and I tried making homemade Japanese curry a few weeks ago, sans roux block, from this recipe:

http://www.japanesefoodreport.com/2011/03/japanese-beef-curry-from-scrat.html

It actually turned out really well. Good thing I have made roux before, otherwise I would have been terrified, LOL! We used pork shoulder instead of beef, though...it was on sale and I think beef chuck/short ribs/other kind of fatty beef can be kind of gross, honestly. I also mixed my own curry powder because there's something about premixed curry powder that bugs me, in more ways than one. That's a heck of a lot of garam masala(makes a heck of a lot of curry, though)!

The similarity of the Ever After High doll face sculpts are kind of unsettling to me. I keep thinking I want to at least get a Raven Queen (I don't follow the tie-in fiction but did watch the little animation short that was released before the dolls) but when I look at all of the dolls together, it gives me a spooky Stepford Wives vibe. I'm really curious as to what the reasoning was behind the nigh-identical round faces!

Thanks for the link to the curry-from-scratch recipe! I'll have to bookmark that for later. :)

Yay for commissions. :)

I've been kind of 'meh' about EAH so far. Kalli likes Cerise, though. (She hasn't appeared up here in Maine yet. If she did, we missed her!)

That curry sounds delicious~
