Hi again guys, I've got a new Abandoned Toy for you! I've been wanting to do a conjoined twin for a while, and I love how she turned out!

I find broken dolls all the time and keep them for parts. The Barbie doll was a legless torso when I found her. I cut her down to just below the chest and cut off one shoulder. I then affixed the hollow Barbie torso over the other doll and sculpted over the top with epoxy clay. It gives a great seal and sets hard like plastic so there is no danger of the 2 parts coming apart. When the clay had dried, I made the dress by stitching her into the fabric and styling from there.

I named the twins Gem & Ella as 'Gemela' is Spanish for twin Smiley

I like Kit-Kat, unless I'm with 4 or more people.

This is the most perfect way to salvage broken dolls. Great mash-up!

Pretty cool, she reminds me a lot of the Monster High mermaid twins Peri & Pearl.  Speaking of which, if you didn't already know, your other body donor was a Monster High Draculaura.  Your doll also reminds me of Ettins, two-headed giants from mythology and Dungeons & Dragons.  The plaid dress is cool and I also like the red bands and dots you applied around their eyes which gives the two heads a matching quality despite their different origins.

Thank you. Yeah I knew she was a Monster High doll, but I didn't know which one. I found a bunch Monster High dolls left behind after a boot sale with missing arms/legs etc. I've just made an 8 legged doll with all the Monster High doll legs Smiley Watch this space for her.

The makeup was an afterthought, and I agree, it really helped bring them together as a cohesive character. Gotta love Sharpies Smiley
