thanks both of you on the  Smiley comments!

Oh I love the outfit she's wearing too. Those boots are awesome!

thanks!  it seems like everybody has that top for their fashion dolls, but i love it anyway.  especially after someone mentioned that the face looks like Bjork.
the boots are actually from these dolls.  they have the slit down the back like barbie boots, so when dolls with thin legs wear them, i just overlap the sides and wrap a black hair-elastic around the top.  i figure if it shows at all, it just looks like part of the laces.
the huge shoes usually make any doll pretty easy to stand up without support.

I love that about those types of boots. That and I actually own a pair very similar. I never get to wear them though so I'd have to live through my dolls and poppets! lol

i did it!! i am so excited that this worked!

i was really nervous to do this, because i was afraid to make holes in my favorite Kurhn... but i used DollsAhoy's suggestions (and hair i got from her!) and it all worked out well, and this is the result:





(in one of those you can see a creepy scalp hole where the hair comes out, but that's because i didn't brush her hair well enough.)

this hair look is borrowed from the "MamaToldMe" Momoko doll (which has pink hair stripes).  but i did it in lavendar to match this doll's eyes.

this doll was waiting all this time to wear her special new top that now matches her hair perfectly!  (it's a barbie one that i bought off somebody on flickr.)

also a first for me was doing the hair setting by boiled water.  that worked out way better than i expected, also!
so all in all, i now have a new confidence for some doll modifications!

have you people considered putting the kurhn heads on Obitsu bodies? Pullip people use them and they're meant to be pretty good. (urrgh, my pullip has SUCH a floppy body  Angry, she really needs an obitsu)I can't find the link now, but will find it later.

oh yeah there are at least 2 ppl in flickr doing that.
i just happen to have overspent elsewhere lately, and can't buy anything more expensive right now and the articulated barbie bodies are relatively cheap... ($5 or less)
here are pics of the ones you might like to see,

and also a good link where to buy obitsu bodies.  (some are only around $15... but in multiples, that adds up!)
http://junkyspot.com/obindex.html (look at 27cm bodies!)
i want a marrone body for this pocahontas that i picked up at the thriftshop the other week, but for now she is OK on a barbie articulated body...
ETA:  here is pocahontas (waiting for a better name):

get one from chinasprout instead!!
especially if you want to obitsu the body, you can get any of them and not have to worry whether she is articulated or not (i think they do have 2 articulated ones, though - the ones that say "pretty model").  of course the ones with the oldstyle bodies often have better outfits.

Ok! I really love this one:
http://chinasprout.com/shop/DBC006 her outfit and haircut is so cute! (hehe, she looks and is dressed like me  Wink)
And I may get one for custom bait, considering their price range  Smiley I want to do a nekomimi cat girl, and with one of these I wouldn't have to do a whole new face up.

i want that one, too!!
(how many Kurhns is too many?!)
and i think any of them would make a GREAT cat-ears girl.

PS: if you look like a Kurhn you are very ke-ai!
PS2: i feel bad recommending chinasprout over flyingannalee, because Anna is so nice.  BUT, it's business...  and people will probably always buy the hard-to-find ones from her.

That is the one I want to get first. Smiley So I love your choice! lol. I think she'd make a great kitty doll too. And her face is all ready adorable. Smiley
