thank you! I made the wigs, then figured I wanted them to curl, so I looked online, and read that I have to wrap the yarn a round a dowl, wet it, then bake it till it dries, I didnt know if that would work, and ruin the "scalp" thats under the wigs, but it did work! I used something like these:

for the mermaid i used kanekalon hair and a few pieces of dark purple curled yarn for "highlights"

*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.
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

*THANKS for making this a featured project!!*
I made all of these over the past 3 years. Most of these are thrift store XL shirts.
All are completely hand sewn! almost all have pockets!

O.K. so here's the Jelly fish dress, made out of 2 thrifted jellyfish shirts

I made this dress from a thrifted shirt, I did some ribbed detail on the front, and added a doily to the back, and gave it a pocket.

This dress was made from a StarWars shirt I got at Disneyland!!! I made the hood and sinched skirt part from another thrifted grey shirt. this is a great fall/winter dress!It has a small pocket with the rebel alliance logo.

This dress is made from a Frankenstien shirt from WalMart. I installed all the snaps down the back, tie, black studs, and added a pocket made form the neckline.

Here's the Glow skull dress! It's made of tons of thrifted black shirts, most of the pieces on this dress glow-in-the-dark, but I found it impossible to get pictures of it in action!  this dress has some Adult themes "spawn 'till you die".. I also hand-studded some diamonds onto the skulls to give them Monroe piercings!this dress has a pocket.

This is the Skull/Bones dress, its made of a thrifted shirt that had different skulls on the front and back, I made the top (bust) out of a sleeve of the shirt, and added the corset buckles and studs to the front and back!

Here's My "Punk Lace" dress, I did the lace back and cut-outs by hand. Dress has a pocket.

Leo DaVinci dress, made this for the Renaissance fair! from a thrifted shirt, it has a pocket on 1 of the flower petal skirt pieces.

And finnaly, this corset is just made form XXL shirt sleeves, you can tell by the way they are cut, I put in some cable ties for boning, and the "ribbon" is made from a shirt as well.. It actually works very well!

In case you cant see the details, here's a better pic.

('true life secrets' shirt reads "And just what must I do to get those?!")

by the way, designer Angela Johnson sells these for hundreds of dollars!?
