2013 is here and I'm excited to share it with each of you.
*Finally got my London Mist Imogen grail doll!!*
I hope to present more fun and entertaining material in the coming year.
A move is impending (not fast enough) and the packing continues.
I'm excited to set up a place for all of my doll madness.
That is, a more functional place.
See FUN is in FUNctional...so cheesy. ;)
The getting there will be the bumpy part, but I'm ready.
Thank you all for being patient with me in 2012.
You're all an inspiration, and you keep me coming back!
To start off my year of sharing I will showcase some pictures of dolls I worked on at the end of last year.
(Note: I understand that those of you who follow me on facebook and Flickr may have already seen all or some of the following pictures. I try to keep up with all 3 sites, but sometimes life just doesn't allow for it. Again, thank you for being incredibly patient and sticking around.)
This is Allison....
She was done for my personal collection, and had waited awhile to get her makeover.
I always loved this doll, but over time, her hair just went to crap.
I originally planned to re-root her in a brown blend, but in a twist of odd timing
and wild inspiration she went red.
As some of you may know, I LOVE Japanese and Korean culture, movies, and music.
It has quite a bit to do with my doll related creative endeavors.
Allison's makeover was inspired by some of the looks seen in various K-Pop girl groups.
Such as Tiffany from Girls' Generation...
*These pictures are not mine.*
Tiffany isn't the only gal with this hair color, but she was the one that came to mind first.
I want Allison to have loose long curls in the future, but
I don't want them to fall out during the move. So that project will have to wait.
Allison's cute style is also a direct result of girl K-pop bands I've seen.
Such as Hellovenus...
And here is Allison with her hat on...
Next is a fella that was re-rooted by a fellow Flickr friend of mine.
Some of you may know her as Elizabeth 1986.
I re-rooted his part to accomodate the style I had planned for him, and I gave him a re-paint.
Thank you again, for the help Elizabeth!
You may remember him like this...
But now, he looks like this...
You'll see more of him in the coming year. These were just quick shots. The blue that was used is extremely dark, and I needed sunlight to showcase the contrast.
Most of my boys tend to be edgy bad boy types. *shrugs*
As long as it is just in fantasy land, right? (^_^)
I also did a commission a few months ago for a fellow blogger.
I give full creative credit to Sal,
as he did something very similar to create his Blair Waldorf.
There was one other commission I did, but I won't be revealing her just yet.
And last, I took some better pictures of Violet. You might remember her as this...
And I wanted to let everyone know that I now require comment approval so that I can make sure I respond to each and every comment.
Many blessings to each of you in 2013!!!
