Howdy! I want to venture into a new area of craft, and I could use some input.
A friend of mine is undergoing chemo, and I want to make her a Wonder Woman doll with a shaved head and just one breast. Accessories would include a tiny bottle of pills, a chemo cap, and a little phone she can use to call her friends for support. Plus some as-yet-to-be determined cancer-fighting weapon. I'm open to suggestion on other accessories, of course!
So the question is this: Have you ever reconstructed a Barbie? I thought I'd snag a beat-up one from a used toy store near here and do a dry run before tackling a good doll. I'm not that worried about the head shaving, but I'm a little leery of the Barbie mascectomy. I thought maybe I could cut it, then melt it together and try to draw a tattoo on it or something. What I'd use to melt plastic, I don't know. Would epoxy work better? A friend of a friend had a suggestion, but said it would work if the doll was solid as opposed to hollow, which Barbie-type dolls are.
Any wonderful brainstorms on this project?
