His robe is based on many pictures of Saint Dominic, such as this one. The dominican habit hasn’t changed much since middle ages but materials are different. The first layer is a long off-white tunic. I used calico – it’s cheap, thin and looks super-historical. I’d recommend adding a simple belt (cingulum) and a plain… Continue reading Dominican Priar: the BJD clothing anatomy
We (i. e. me, Alexandra and Erik) attended this local meet-up yesterday. Everyone was lucky with the weather. Halloween theme party was a perfect occasion for making some costumes.

Erik is an Iplehouse J.I.D. Jerome. This sculpt is discontinued from March 2014 – it was announced in January. I wanted him a lot, so I ordered him without any more delays.
