I made this Wedding present for my two BFFF's who recently joined the ranks of married individuals.

I used Living Dead Dolls purchased on eBay as my bases. I found I was able to wipe off the dolls current lip color, eye color and any other facial features using acetone. I then painted the features I wanted back on using paint markers. Both of them have extensive tattoos and ear piercings - I am not the best artist, but I did what I could using fine line Sharpies. I thought they came out decent as I had to fudge what some of them looked like.  Wink

I had to do a bit of cutting and coloring to the hair. The girl doll I picked already had bright red hair like my BFFF, but she dyes the underside of her hair black so I tried the Sharpie method on the doll. It worked out okay - the black faded a little bit when I washed it, but she wears her hair in buns quite a bit so I just put it up and it became unnoticeable. I cut the boys hair down as much as I could without showing the weird doll scalp. My friend has quite a bit of gray in his hair so I just used a silver paint marker to give him "streaks".  Wink

The clothing is the original they came in, but I did alter it quite a bit to fit their style. I then made a few teeny tiny bracelets and necklaces and paired them with some doll size 40's - ta-da!

Finally..... the final product!

Gasp! Put some clothes on - you're no exhibitionist!

Clothed and loving it

Ready to be delivered in their little coffin

"What is it? It could be anything! It could be a boat!"

Yay! They love them!

Comments welcome! Cheesy
