60+ plus Steve heads out of a total 120 i just finished casting,. took me a “few” days to make these, I still need to use my needle files to remove the resin from the eyes/mouths, embed magnets, and about 39 of them need painted, …hmmm looks like its time for the last meager strands of my sanity to drift away,..goodbye sanity :D
Vince is having none of it!!
He’s just a little irate that his release date is late,.. oh well Vince you’re just gonna have to wait a lil bit.
Sorry for being behind on releasing this guy, after I returned from the convention in Dallas i had a bunch of personal stuff that came up, a bunch of Steve molds to remake, some molding/casting commission work and the final finishing work to do on the last of my large female doll sculpts that I plan on shipping out this week.
Im working like mad to get the Vince and Steve kits as well as the finished dolls up in the store and I’m hoping to have them up by the 18th-19th
soon as they are up I’ll of course be posting a heads up.
Mira and Nails are at a standstill, unfortunately I wont have the time to work on them until i get the Steves and Vinces in my online store (to sell) as im not too keen on the whole starving thing.
any questions can be noted to me here or sent to bishonenhouse (at) yahoo (d0t) com
take care all :-)
Its throwback Thursday time,… this time waaaaaaaaaaay back!! haha
(besides i don’t have any new doll posts quite ready)
22 years ago today i was busy in the creature shop painting turtle parts. LOTS of turtle parts.
Every evening when id return to my hotel room id blow my nose and it would be bright “turtle green” :-( that rubber cement paint was nasty, it got everywhere and on everything.
While i was working on the turtles I took hundreds of pics and these are just a few of them.
I rarely post any of this stuff because the last time I posted turtles work some butt hurt (really creepy) fanboy, who apparently HATED the live action turtles films went on a personal vendetta and began to harass me (or attempt to do so) on my DA page and via email,. (It sounds completely insane but sadly Im not joking about this)..LOL
For the sane adults, i thought id share a few a few behind the scenes pics for those who enjoy seeing retro puppet/creature/fx stuff.
and “baby” me with my late 80s early 90s hairstyle,.. LOL!! ;-D
Once the holiday weekend is over and things get back to normal ill post some Mira progress and more info about Vinces release :-)
Early this morning around 8am i began cutting up the printouts, cutting each name on a little strip of paper, by noon i had only finished one sheet :-(
Something had to be done to simplify the process of choosing a winner! (i have dolls to finish and spending an entire day cutting up names just wont do), I began to channel Steve’s “slacker powers”, soooo I decided to pin the names to a foam board, take them outside (safely away from breakables and animals) blindfold myself, stand 15 feet away and then assault the board with darts until I hit a name (even without the blindfold my accuracy with darts is the very definition of random)
The 5th dart (to actually hit the board) made its mark! :-)
And the winner is…… Jennifer Mead!!!
Congratulations Jennifer!!! (i will be contacting you before the day is over)
And to everyone else, thank you all for entering! don’t fret though in the next couple of months or so i will be having yet another contest!!
Everyone who entered the “win a vince kit” contest,..( it took a “little while” to copy and paste all these screen names, lol,). the winner will be announced tomorrow, good luck to all! :-)
A never before posted pic of my “bounty hunter” version of Vince, and a re-share of his first 5 expressions for those new to watching me. This is my last post in the "WIN A VINCE KIT CONTEST" I’ll leave the contest up and running until tomorrow morning around 8am my time (US eastern time) then im going to begin the rather large task of gathering and printing out all the names of all who entered for the drawing.
Remember, I’ll be announcing the winner on the 25th of June (next week)
Thanks to everyone who shared Vince and huge thanks to everyone who liked/shared everything else! :-D I work fairly isolated and its always a BIG morale boots when i see others take an interest in the unusual work i do.
thanks again all! :-)
Steve, Vince and some guy who hasn’t slept in a very long time :-) Wrapped up DollAKon just a little while ago, had an amazing time at the con! Thanks to everyone who dropped by the table and everyone who attended my panels, it was great to see old frriends again and meet new ones!
For those who didnt get to attend the Bishonen House panel at DollAKon,…. a little sneak peak at Nails, After Vince he will be the next release from the increasingly inappropriately named Bishonen House :D,. this is just an unjointed prototype sculpt but hes pretty much there. :-)
Im here at DollAKon/Akon in Dallas Texas, Pictured above is the Steve Full Set and Steve Kit I donated to the auction to raise funds for Nathan Fillions chaity, Kids Need to Read, its a good cause and a good opportunity to get the

Drop by the DollAKon table in front of Plum Blossom A for details, it’s in the main courtyard at the Hilton, :-)
