*update! adding more pics daily with progress!!*
So I didn't really like these dolls, until I found out they where so highly respected in the doll community. I checked out a few at eBay & my local stores, I fell in love!! The articulation and customization blew me away! I bought 3 dolls to keep original (Ghouls Alive Frankie is sooo cool! And Skelita, and the Ghoulia with her scooter!) I am currently trying to customize two 'create-a-monster dolls, and tons of random heads and limbs, tho I am having trouble with the faces.. I tried sealers, pastels, acrylics, water color pencils, ect, but nothing seems to work right for me. any suggestions?!? I'm still doing tons of research. I can't wait to make some wigs, and eventually re-root hair! This will be a huge project for me but I am very excited! So while I'm waiting for the right faces, I'm working on a few clothing items.. I hope you enjoy them, these are all hand sewn, and hand dyed!
sorry these pics are so small. for skelita I made this Spanish red rose "dress", it is actually separates, a top, skirt and shoulder ruffle, that can be worn on 1 shoulder/both, or not at all. Black felt hat has a tiny mesh veil with tiny fabric flowers, hand made.
the Spanish skull hair comb from polymer, and the veil is lace, the skirt is fabric marker on velvet baroque fabric, felt handbag, and beaded bracelets, the top and shoes are monster high.
I want to make this girl a Japanese Lolita girl! I made the beanie, skirts, petticoat, backpack, ruffle blouse and beaded bracelets, and painted her nails.
yarn wigs, hair fancies, polymer clay charms, collars, ect!
And some random skirts, Victorian skirt can be synched, hats with snaps underneath, purses, bows, ribbons, beanies & Lolita accessories :
I also have a purple fishy girl with fins that my boyfriend wants me to turn into a WaveDancer from Elf quest! Can't wait to start on her!
kanekalon hair wig, beaded crowns, shell embellishments, can't wait to make clothes for her!
I made a tiny replica of the backpack I got @ SoulFlower.com
