First of all, please forgive the somewhat blurry pictures.  My phone keeps trying to do face recognition, which makes for some blur.  Anyway, these are my latest customs.  The rocker was commissioned by my bf's sister to give to her bf.  And the gorgon I made because I was inspired by a documentary about ancient myths.








She started life as a CAM gorgon.  Her skin was originally a pearlescent shiny green.  On her face I blushed all the indented lines with chalk pastel, then I did a blushing of her whole body, making sure to accentuate the details.  Her eyes are supposed to be a little milky, as gorgons were modeled after dead bodies (cracked skin, milky eyes).  Her skirt is just a few layers of tulle that are cut up.  Her wig is the one that came with her, but it was originally bright green and I painted it black.




He started life as a CAM from the gargoyle/vampire set.  It took me FOREVER to track down that guitar, but she was insistent that he have an electric guitar.  I used acrylic paint for his faceup with chalk pastel blushing for a 5 o'clock shadow.

As always, C & C welcome!

Thank you!  I normally put my customs on Etsy, but I think I want to keep her.  She's just too cool.
