Effie Trinket dressed and all the other OOAK doll stuff I've been busy with...

Well, it finally all came together!! Effie Trinket is home with her owner and wearing a OOAK ensemble he created for her.

 ALL pictures of dressed Effie belong to the owner. I am sharing them with his permission. (^_^)



And a reminder of the picture that inspired this doll...


I am really pleased with the FINAL result. Whew!

Now, I did some other re-roots and partial re-paints as well. They are as follows...

He started life as a stiff $5 ken. He got a new body, new hair, and a new face. 
"Corbin" is part of my collection.

"BEFORE"
Oops! Someone got Q-tip happy with the Acetone and Corbin lost an eyebrow. Guess I will have to re-paint them after all. 

"AFTER"

I meant to get a dressed picture of him, but that failed to happen. I am sure he'll show up again. 



Next are two commissions I finished. 


The first is a Harley Ken. He got a custom re-root and a custom cut. 
All clothes were chosen by his owner.

"BEFORE" 



"PROGRESS"

Talk about having your head on a plate...hehe... (^_^)

"MORE PROGRESS"


"AFTER"

I would like to note that his "rooting" progress was done in the course of one night. Which is a new record for me where a "Ken" sized head is concerned. His plugs were made and his head was prepped the night before. 


The other commission I did was this gal...

"BEFORE"

My "to do" with this gal was a re-root, an eyebrow and lip re-paint.


"AFTER"



^^Here was my attempt at a "Bump-it"...

Her owner decided to just give her a regular ponytail. This picture is his. 
She was originally a Publicity Tour Barbie. 

As many of you know, I have been working on my doll room for over a month. 
And my progress has felt super slow!!!! 

But, Nahla's Auntie Ri Ri would like to say hello from her shopping spree at the new mall...

 Let's sneak a VERY small peek...

 "Hello, I'm Auntie Ri Ri!"

"And I'm fun, fabulous, and addicted to shopping sprees!"


I think Auntie Ri Ri is going to be a handful. ;) 

For my next blog post I plan on showing off the ENTIRE new mall.
Promise. (^_^)

  10. I don't know who Effie is, but you did a wonderful job on her. You are amazingly creative. Thanks so much for showing Aunt Ri Ri. Who's body is she on? Maybe I would like mine better if she got a new body. By the way, happy early birthday! Better to be early, than late.

    1. Thank you very much Vanessa. I didn't know who she was either until I got this request to make her. Then I quickly learned all about miss Effie Trinket. :) I am not sure what doll body Aunt Ri Ri is on. I do believe it is an older articulated Christie doll. I got the doll in a lot on eBay and she ended up being a perfect match. And thank you for the early birthday wishes!! (^_^)
