This is my newest Monster High Custom.  She started out as a create-a-monster.  I painted her face with acrylic to look like Emily from Corpse Bride.  I did my own thing with her dress because I wasn't sure if I could pull off the original.









As always, C&C welcome!

Beautiful detail on the dress! Very demure and delightful. I love the posing. She's so very lifelike for a skinny little thing  Grin.

I've been waiting to see this ever since the sneak-peek in your other post!
She is gorgeous! Her dress may not be an exact copy of the movie dress but it's still fantastic!

Thank you!

On all my customs I use Windsor and Newton brush cleaner to remove the factory paint and I use acrylic paint to repaint. I water down the arcrylic quite a bit or else it's too thick. You can use colored pencils but you have to prep it with Mr Super Clear to get enough tooth on the doll's face.
