NOTE

Just a note to let people know that, while I do try to answer most comments, favorites, and such, I'm kind of terrible at it, so don't be surprised if it takes a while.


Just a little something to establish the mood. Actual lyrics start about 40 seconds in. And yes, it is long(ish). Every version I found was long. (That doesn't count the flamenco ballet, or the actual full length film that I found, either.)


So. The new La Llorona character in the store is ... intriguing.

On the one hand, she would work beautifully for something that I started years and years and years ago, and which might work better as a sort of graphical story (which would allow me to shortcut the intensely boring middle in a way that prose would have more difficulties with). On the other ...

I like the idea of making a character from La Llorona -- I grew up where she's very much a story people still tell -- but aspects of this one don't quite work for me. Partly because the wide variety of makeups and looks makes her really not match the story in my head, I think -- she is NOT supposed to look like The Joker! or The Bride of Frankenstein's Monster! Though the other looks work for both Maria and La Llorona, so there's that. I don't know ... I just don't know ... (Yes, yes, I know, I don't have to use those.)

I do occasionally wonder how much some of the content creators know about the sources for their various creations. For example, the text on La Llorona makes no reference to any variety of the source legend at all.

I also picked up an item in Fast Grab months and months ago for hardly anything, a demonic character. And then when I started to work with it recently, it turned out to be mostly a festival of geografts, which wasn't at all clear from the product information. (I should add, this isn't a bad thing, just a badly documented thing.) In any event, as part of trying to figure out what was going on, I did an online search for the name, to see if there was a particular look that it was supposed to be going for and ... well. It's a particularly icky demon, let's put it that way. (Also supposed to be a cyclops, which this wasn't.) And, given context of ickiness, doing it without genital textures was a deeply ironic choice.

Eh. Mostly I'm trying to talk myself out of getting La Llorona, because that would make today hideously expensive. The trick being, it doesn't make any sense to get her and not get the bundle, because I want almost everything else, and the cost difference between the character, the poses, the dress, and getting the bundle is something like $1. But I really don't want Muneca; the only way I can imagine using her would be to literally convert her to a doll ... and I didn't get the G2F version of the Ball Joint Doll set, only the Genesis version. And, judging from what happens when I tried it with Bot Genesis, that type of geograft doesn't make it across generations at all.

Ah, well. I have one more day to hold myself back, assuming that something great doesn't come down the pike tomorrow, right? (The one saving grace for this sale, wallet-wise, is that it's been far more variable that the PA sale in terms of stuff what I Absolutely Must Have NOW. Just barely, but enough. Though that's been made up for by a sudden influx of interesting stuff at Renderosity. The Parrotdolphin metal shaders didn't take any thought at all. And so forth.)
