Knee deep

June 17, 2008

can i keep her???

Where to begin? It’s been some time since I’ve updated. I’ve been knee deep in trying to get some dolls ready for IFDC at the end of July. But here’s a recent custom. Another gothy type girl for a customer who desperately wanted her own goth girl after seeing the other 2 I did recently.

My Lati babies finally arrived after 2 months since ordering them and then I added 2 more on top of that so now I have 6 yellows. I think I’ll stop there for now. They’ve restocked too so I could get a Lami but I don’t feel I need her. I’ve reached my saturation point with six so unless I let one go I won’t be getting her anytime soon.

So, after getting the other bebes with Lati’s default make-up I finally decided to redo my Lea. I had originally done her to be similar to the company’s default because that’s what I liked at the time but now after seeing some more face-ups from other artists, I wanted to put my own touch to her. I LOVE the results and I don’t think I’ll ever order a basic doll with make-up now that my skills are improving. Also pictured is my Luts KD Bory who ended up getting repainted as well. Now I’m happy with them and can stop fussing over what I didn’t like before.
New faces

It’s hard to catch the subtlety of Bory’s brows and they look better in person than this picture. I just want to keeping going at it with doing these resin beauties make-up but I unless I redo every doll I have I’m out of dolls to do. I’ll take more pictures of these cuties tomorrow but untill then I must get back to finishing my dolls for the convention.

Till next time!

Famous last words…

April 20, 2008

Previews

I have closed my commission book for a bit so I can get ready for IFDC at the end of July. I took a break in between commissions here and did this Volks Dollfie man head. Then I gave him a razor cut and I think my Momokos are going to fight over him. I’m planning on bringing him IFDC and have some other doll heads to work on so I can offer them up for sale.

So, as I said in my title “famous last words” because in my last post I said I wasn’t into the bigger ball-jointed dolls and then after finishing my face-up on Sooah, I felt like playing with her. I put a black wig on her and she turned completely asian and really cool looking so I going to style her up in more street clothes with a punk goth type theme and will also bring her to the convention. I may even try to make clothes but I’m still a beginner in sewing and have lots to learn. I guess working on Sooah and getting her face-up just right brought out her personality and I guess we “bonded” as they say in the doll world.

Stay tuned for more face-ups on the smaller Obitsu and Volk’s dolls. 🙂

3 day weekend

Iveta's miracle party girl reroot

Well it’s another Friday and time just doesn’t slow down does it. At least it’s a 3 day weekend for us here in the USA with Memorial day weekend. My momoko today is a rerooted commission of Miracle Party Girl. I love her new hair color. I was never wild about this dolls make-up but now it fits her perfectly. She still needs a fleshtone Sekiguchi body so please contact me if interested in selling one. I can then forward to the owner of this lovely head. She’s desperately searching for a body right now.

I’ve been pretty busy with dolly projects with my new Blythe obsession and also just trying to get at least 3 customs listed on eBay a week. Here are my latest obitsu heads. One is a 1/6 size and the other is a Haruka 60cm head.

My first Blythe

May 22, 2007

blythe 035

Well, I don’t have a momoko of the day today because I thought I’d share my first Blythe. She’s a Piccadilly Encore and I got her sort of as a Mother’s Day gift since my hubby and kids got me an eBay gift certificate. She arrived before my primadollies I ordered and I just couldn’t wait to customize her. All I meant to do was sand matted her face but accidently did her lips so I painted over them. I’m waiting on some eyechips too which really can make a difference. I may change out her eyelashes too but I don’t want to get a head of myself. Still love my momokos though so I’ll definetly have more pics of her soon. I’ll have to vary my daily pics between all these lovely dollies.

I’m a little late in posting on my latest face-up. She’s a Volks dollfie head and she’s on eBay right now. I was busy with a visit from my mom last week so I haven’t had much time to get on the computer and have been playing catch-up. Click here or on the picture to view or bid.

New Obitsu on eBay

May 9, 2007

My new girl 04HB

My momoko today is the lovely 04HB from the 2004 petworks happy box. I got her in a trade and am totally pleased. She’s one that caught my eye but I just figured she was another one out of my reach so don’t even bother to want her. But now I have her. She’s a gem!

On my dolly projects I do have a new 1/6 sized obitsu head up on eBay modeled on a sekiguchi body. She’s a white tone head with black hair and her photos don’t do her justice. Click here or on the picture to view or bid.

Hazy wind reroot

Today’s momoko is my hazy wind orange reroot. I have loads of dolly projects I’m thinking about but of course, not enough time to do them.

I do have a new Obitsu Gretel head on eBay so click here or on the picture to view or bid. I will also be listing a 1/6 size obitsu head later this week.

New momo reroot

February 14, 2007

you like my hair?

Here’s Nine to Five momoko rerooted as a blonde. Another all weekend project but I always love the results. They get a new head of hair that’s silky soft instead of stiff and unmanageable. The hair on the Sekiguchi momokos tend to be that way and a new head of hair takes an o.k. doll to a new favorite. And this is another one I planned on selling but again not so sure… I think I’ll enjoy her for a little bit and again if anyone is interested in buying her just contact me.

I have my obitsu mahoghany head up for sale on eBay right now. Click here or the picture to view or bid.
