This is going to be a picture heavy post, but I'll try not to be long winded. ;)
I didn't lie! I've been busy and I've certainly been around. Maybe not around the blog but I'm doing better than I was, so we'll try to focus on the positive.
In this post I will be showing you three different custom gals I worked on within the last few months. As of this post all three are home with their respective owners.
First up, the custom Barbie Fifth Harmony Dinah Doll with a partial re-paint and a full re-root.
She did not start life glamorous. In fact, I was going to just sell her head and move on.
Then inspiration struck as I realized what a pretty face she had.
It caused me to remember what once propelled me forward in my creative dolly endeavors.
My joy came from unearthing something beautiful in a doll others would look over.
I settled on a two color re-root using saran hair, and followed it up by enhancements to her original face paint.
Of course I cannot leave you with just a before and after shot.
Let the photo shoot commence...
Next in line for her blog debut is a doll I am really pleased to have worked on!
Formerly a Top Model Nikki Barbie given a re-root in Nylon hair and flocking on one side.
She belongs to the very talented Miranda of OneSixthAvenue.
Be sure to keep an eye on OneSixthAvenue's blog and Facebook for this girl's appearance in the future. ;)
Before I get to the fashion shoot with this doll I would like to take a closer look at her hair.
Please keep in mind that these photos are not edited.
I don't think I will do a short hairstyle using Saran ever again. Premium Nylon was superior in it's performance to obey what I needed in every way.
Thank you for trusting me Miranda!! <3
After the cut/style and boil it laid beautifully.
Now the photo shoot...
I hated to see her go. Can you blame me?!
Miranda mentioned she had a Kill Bill character feel and I have to agree with her.
Maybe my subconscious enjoyment of the Kill Bill movies were at play while I styled her?
And the last gal I have to share today is one I made for my personal collection.
She was given a reroot in two saran colors, flocked, pierced, and partially re-painted with eyelashes added.
I don't have a mouthful to say about this one. Just that you'll see more of her in the future.
The last photo shoot (and it's short)...
And as a bonus, for those of you wondering how her original hair looks up close, I took some pictures.
I hope each of you is having a wonderful October!!
More coming soon!
