Sneaky lighting playing tricks on me. Sneaky sneaky lighting
Now that I have a smartphone, I have half a mind to try pictures with it. In the past, I’ve been surprised at how much more natural and true to life the colors have sometimes been with phone cameras. I think sometimes it’s because they don’t try to compensate as much. My actual camera is sometimes too smart and it wigs out.
I am also picking up cookie easels, which will make for more fun pictures. So there will probably be another set of WS pictures, probably on my personal blog ^^; But not for at least a week or so, because the rest of this week is packed and I haven’t even ordered the easels yet because I’ll be out of town the rest of the week.

EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEE!!! I LOVE THEM ALL!! (But particularly the one with the little tufts of hair flying away at the bottom. He’s so perfect!!)
I’m glad you like him! I kind of went with all sorts of hair options, since my reference shots had his hair doing all sorts of things. I feel good about this decision :D

Is the muzzle over the mouth a different black than the rest of the mask? I really like how the contrast looks in the photos.
Nope, it’s all the same black in that case- I had to make up a new black for the mask, and all the pant details, but it’s all one color. Any apparent differences in color are tricks of the light due to differences in height. It was really bright out when I took the pictures, and it played hell with the colors, so all the differences in hair color, for example—all the cookies used the exact same brown icing, but depending on the background paper and photo, the hair color looks radically different, too. It’s just a trick of the light and camera :/ The bright light also makes it almost impossible to see all the brown in the vest, but such is life ^^;

I’m in love with this cookie. I mean. I think I’m pretty much always in love with your cookies, so this may not be a surprise, but I want to get cookie married to this Bucky. (And the Carol cookies. Because they will always be my first love)
<3 I will try very hard not to mess him up in the home stretch, then :D I’m waffling on how detailed to make the mask, at the moment. Basically, every step from here on out is a bit tricky ^^;

I can definitely notice this olive undertones! I love them (the arms all look good to me though, embedded or not. I asked bestie for an opinion and she just shrugged.)
I went with embedded because I think they’ll hold up better in the end. I’m about to start piping the gray in now, because of course 10:30 is a totally rational time to start prolonged detail-oriented work on 10 cookies, but if I do that, I can do the silver on them tomorrow, and maybe start the masks tomorrow, and perhaps hair and stars Wednesday, and final details Thursday?
In any case, these should be done by the weekend, barring any major surprises.
I’ll have to figure out how to do pictures here :D Interior lighting is a no-go, but we’re a floor up. might be a little awkward to take these guys out to the sidewalk on a tray ^^;
I think tonight is a good night to start the Winter Soldier cookies.
By which I mean, I’m in the mood to make some cookie dough :D
