So, in the last few months I have become interested in Blythe, Pullip, and other big eyed dolls.  Which is odd, cause I never played with dolls as a kid.  I'm a stuffie grrrl.  But there is something about the huge head and little bodies that I think is appealing.  I also am very interested in how all the Big Eyed Doll owners customize their kids.  But, it will be awhile till I can spend the kind of cash it would take to "play" in Blytheville.  So, when this challenge came up, I decided to see if I could make my own version.......I started with this.

99 cents for the baby doll and $1.99 for both of the Bar.....dolls of a recognized name (don't want to attract the attention of Mattel).  I was not sure which B-girl I was going to use, but they were in a bag together.  I ended up using the middle one, because she was a slightly odd color and a bit sparkly.  I think she used to be a fairy or some such, as she has 2 slots in her back about where wings would go. (Sorry about the stickers.  I think all dismemberment has me a bit addled as to what is appropriate now..)

WARNING!  Doll dismemberment ahead.  May not be suitable for the weak of heart.....My house has looked like a tiny serial killer moved in for the last few weeks.

These are the parts I ended up using.  The baby's legs from the knees down,  I used for my dolls feet.

I've started to carve my dolls head at this point.

After I was happy with the carving, I started to paint her to help to blur the carving lines.  I think I put about 7 coats of paint and or Weldbond glue (used as a sealer) on by the time I was done.  The eyes I used were clear, so I used a bit of a sticker (from the Olympics I believe) to back them in something sparkly.  (Everything I used was from my hoard.  And most of it was recycled.)  I ended up tapeing the eyes into the head, so I could change them later if I wanted to.

Here the eyes are glittered, and I have chosen her fur.  Her fur was a remnant from the fabric store I used to work at.

This is after I started to work on her hood.  I've finished the background of her face, and just finished putting on the lip base.  The nails in the side of her neck are to keep the holes open that I punched for putting some wire so the hood could be taken on and off.  Somewhere in here I decided the stiff arms would eventually drive me crazy, so I decided to do a hack I saw on CRAFTzine a few months ago.  Turns out it was an instructable on how to insert wire into the joints of the doll so it would bend where it should.  I ended up cutting the arm, poking a hole with a awl, and just pressure fitting the wire into place.  So if it breaks from posing, I can replace it with ease.

It took me about 2 weeks of fiddling to get her to this next step.  But here she is finally standing tall...
ZOEY!!!!

She really needs a hair cut though.....so, after a lot of cutting and combing and detangling......
The new and improved ZOEY!!!

This is the first dress I made her.  I used a shorty shirt that I bought for a quarter a few years ago because the fabric was funky and it was 100% Lycra....normally Lycra is blended.  I'll show you what is left of the shirt in a bit.  I used the hem of the shirt for the hem of the dress, so it was pretty easy to do by hand.  I will make her a funky belt for this dress out of an old necklace...someday...

And a closeup of her face...you may be noticing the fangs.  It turns out she is 1/2 Angora rabbit, and 1/2 Yeti...It's a complicated and sordid story that she doesn't like to talk about....But here is a photo of her Daddy..

She doesn't have any photos of her Mom...don't ask please.
And that will explain her feet too..

I used the babies lower leg and feet to make Zoey's feet, because Miss B's feet were set up for high heels and there was no way I was going to make my new friend wear high heels.

I decided, after I got her done, she needed more clothes then just one dress.  So I pulled out my Box-O-Sox, and made her a few outfits from old tiny socks.

Zoey's first sock outfit.  I also made her a tiny pet from a baby sock.  She calls him Munch for some reason, even though he doesn't seem to have a mouth.

Zoey's stripey punk dress.  I will add some embellishment of some sort..once I figure out what..

I think this outfit is my favo.  I love the tiny goldfish tube top.

Second favo outfit so far.


Here are some examples of the socks I used, and what is left of the shirt I used for her first dress.

Now, it turns out that Zoey has a secret you  may have noticed in some of the construction shots.  I ended up adding a hinge to the scalp and head so that I could store things in her brain box.  It turns out that Yeti's brains are in their feet!

And here is a pic of her putting away all the things she owns so far in her head.

I'm past happy with how she turned out.  She is sturdier then I thought she would be for one thing.  And I love love love how she is a one of a kind for sure.

Your brain is twisted just the right way to create pure AWESOME! That is completely creatively amazingly great!  From her yeti feet to the top of her hinged dome, she is the coolest doll I have ever seen.  I generally find dolls just a tiny bit creepy, but I love her.  LOVE!  Wow.  Just, wow.

Wow you guys!  Thanks so much.  And Zoey thanks you too Grin

emosauce-  I have been wanting to do something like this for awhile, but this was my first time.  I didn't start with much of a plan either.  I just worked with the stuff I had and took one step at a time.  I was delighted to discover it was rather easy.  I would encourage you to get a couple of cheep dolls and just jump in.  I learned so much as I went along.

silvermoon- Nope, not listned to much J. Coulton...perhaps I should tho

everyone else-TTTT I was kinda creeped out by the dismemberment part to start.  BUt they don't scream or anything Shocked

I'm working on a dolly-reclamation project, but realized yesterday that there's no way to finish in time for this challenge.

So I'm really really glad to see someone else with a refurb doll.

And your new doll is so filled with Awesome Win -- I love her. You did a fabulous job (I think I love her feet the most).

The shot of the baby doll's head all carved up, though very creepy, had a certain familiarity for me, as I had to do something similar to a dozen "newborn" dolls last year to turn them into plague-ridden dead babies. (It's an opera thing - don't ask.) But as grisly as that was, it did absolutely nothing to prepare me for the cascading, psychedelic out-there-ness of the rest of your post! I was literally slack-jawed by the end of it. I was too stunned to even hit "This Rocks" so I'll have to go back and do that now. Shocked

Having just had you as a swap partner, I realize that I didn't even begin to get to know the real Suereal! Now I see how you got your name!

I remain utterly in stupefied awe at your awesomeness. I have to go lie down now.

Wow. Love it.

Reminds me of childhood. My mom always bought the $1 'fashion dolls.' I was hard on them & eventually the arms or legs would fall off. I had a (decorated!) box of B- parts - assorted arms, legs, and the occasional torso (no heads I remember). When I had an amputee, she went to the box for the replacement. Your combination makes me think of how many dolls I had with only one tanned arm or leg.

O...M...G....I have been trying to post a thank you the last few days for all the nice comments from y'all about Zoey..and my brain LOL.  But I have been at a loss of words each time.  I'm ..well speechless it seems.  Y'all's responses have been the epic of epicness for me. Where do I start?

craftgasm! *giggle* *blush*....well that was as good for me as it was for you hehehe.

I'm delighted folks are enjoying her story as well.  I didn't work on it much really (which is odd for me ...I normally have the story in my head before the project) The story just grew as she did.  And I'm trying rather hard these days to not censer what my craft fairy whispers into my ear, when it comes how things will look.  Technically, she is one big happy accident, where all the experiments worked out.

Wulf-I'm terrible tempted to take that last line from your post and put it on a tshirt to wear when I'm feeling a lack of my personal awesomeness.  And coming from the baby's Daddy of one dozen zombie (I imagine it was not that kind of opera, but it is more fun to think of them that way then plaque babies...) spawn, your post has me inspired to make more LOL.  Besides..it will mean I have a box of tiny feet and ears to play with Grin

teachart-heheh I hope your not having nightmares or anything Shocked. heheh and now I keep looking at things and thinking, " I bet I could put a little hinge on that and have a new space!".  Unfortunately, Cosmo's (my dog) head is about the same size as Zoey's....Just kidding..just kidding

Aveykin- Your so sweet!  I'm sure you could make a My Little Wild Child if you tried.  I've seen what YOU make and I'm sure yours would be wicked!  And your right!  I'm crazy LOL...I'm just so glad to find folks that think it's "awesome" Grin (and Zoey is very excited about the prospect of getting some new clothes Wink )

If anyone does make a Zoey inspired hack doll, I would love to see what you make.  And thanks again everyone for all the yummy words Grin It much happyness makeing in my brain LOL

This twisted dolly is so freaking RAD! I poured intently over all your little details. This is going to be one of those dolls that you keep revamping/redressing because this little freak can never get boring!  I am willing to bet that you will never tire of clothing this baby. I thought I was excited over the fluffiness of the legs and the claw feet.. oh and the carved-evil-bunnyish head... and the cool outfits, hairclips, etc, etc, (am I rambling?) .... but when I saw the wicked (and very unexpected) STORAGE COMPARTMENT.... I about FELL OF MY DAMN CHAIR! Ingenious! It's "All in her head!" BWAAAAHAHhahahahaha! Freakin' EPIC! I can't get over this! Round of Applause!!!!! "Good Job" Just doesn't seem to express how I feel about this dolly. :O)

  YOU ROCK and everything you touch turns to greatness! Love the way your mind bends and alters creepy freaking dolls to really sweet little misunderstood fanged babies Smiley

  I have a 2 1/2 foot doll in the garage that will be turned into pinhead one day LOL Atlanta freaked out when she got her for Christmas last year so out of the house she went but I would have never thought to cut into the skin and alter that way too...Maybe I need all the ugly babies she has to toss and send them to you Smiley
