Today I got the body blush for Ceryop to a point I like, complete with cute little spots on her hips. Then I spent the next two hours trying to restring her and only got this far. Frustrated doesn't begin to cover it.
I'd forgotten why I haven't restrung her in all this time. I CAN'T.
Like other parts of her legs, the channels in her calves are just way too narrow for me to get the elastic back through. It's not a straight channel either, and it looks like whoever drilled them didn't line the two ends up neatly.
The second pic has the cord I was using to thread and that tiny little knot kept getting stuck. It's THAT narrow. Tried fixing the problem with my own drill but I drilled a little too far and now whatever I try to thread through just gets stuck in the little dead-end I made.
So right now she's in a box shoved away until I can work with a clear head again.
