Out of This World Poppy Parker Reroot


I didn't take a before photo of this doll,
but you can click here to see Out of This World Poppy Parker as she was before.


She was a commission, so I sadly had to send her home to her owner. 
Pretty sure I need this Poppy in my life one day. ;)
She was re-rooted in Tickled Pink Saran. 
 
(A progress photo, just because.) 
^_^


And a couple more pretty pictures for good measure...










 If you haven't seen episodes 1-7, 
you still have time to check them out before Episode 8 arrives.


Thank you for stopping in and having a look around. 
<3
Sending love to all of you...

EPISODE 7: LOL Cat

If you are new here, then you will want to go binge read/watch by clicking here.


Cat, Byung Hee, and London made it to a restaurant. 
They sat in silence after ordering their food.
But Cat, could no longer hold her tongue.












With semi-full stomachs, they piled into Byung Hee’s car.









Byung Hee pulled the car off to the side of the road.

The Idea Grew On Me.


I embarked on rooting my first beard/mustache. 
You'd think I would have become brave enough to attempt this sooner. 
Wrong. ;)

Miranda, of OneSixthAvenue, needed a dad for Luke. 
She had some great ideas on how she wanted him to look. 
Together, we made one hot dad. 
You can see more of his final look on Miranda's Flickr.
^_^


A little more about this project...


 The base doll was a Hunger Games Finnick Ken.

Yes, I used the same before picture on a previous project.

I started with a reroot. 


His hair is a mix of hand blended silver and light brown saran. 

The beard was added last and went through 2-3 rounds of boil washing. 
Letting the hair dry, while held down, was key in keeping the beard/mustache from sticking out all over the place.

Rooting in a beard gets very tricky when you hit the goatee/chin area.
 The thickness in the vinyl makes for a dangerous situation.  
So if/when you attempt to root in a beard, keep that in mind. 
You need a long thin needle, pliers, and patience. 
It should not have to come to blood, sweat, swearing, and beards. 
;)
Lesson learned.

 A quick picture of his part and beard up-close. 

He looks like a guy who wants to experience the open road,
on his motorcycle, all day. 
 


This is a comparison shot I took to see if I had pulled off the first stage of a father/son look. 
The brown eyes on Luke's dad are photoshopped in this picture. 
However, Miranda has since made him look older and given him dark eyes. 
It looks awesome! I'm sure she will post more pictures in the future. :)


Of course, he was introduced to some of the local trouble makers. 


He didn't seem to mind...


This might be a good time to announce Episode 7!  


 If you haven't seen Episode 6, 
you still have a week to check it out before Episode 7 arrives.

Thank you for stopping in and having a look around. 
I'm excited to keep each of you updated!

Sending love to all of you...
