Where have I been?

Finished for Valerie

It’s been ages, I know. I’ve been busy with kiddos and somehow the work has piled up again so I haven’t had much time to blog.

This is a few weeks old. She’s a puki multihead Ante on a brownie body. I did her face-up and think it’s one of my best because of the teeny tiny detail. I almost went blind doing it.

She’s in her new home after a rough trip from the post office. For some reason the packages I sent to San Diego got beat up. I sent 2 different one to 2 different people at 2 different times and both dolls got shook loose or searched or I don’t know what. Thankfully they didn’t suffer any damage and they were insured. Now I’m hesitant to send packages to San Diego. Priority mail took a week and I’m in a neighboring state.

Well, I’ll post more pics of projects soon.

Knee deep

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!

009

So I just realized I think I’ve had this blog up for a year now. I can’t believe how time flies. I was reminded of this because of a comment on one of my very first 60cm face-ups. Admittingly not my best work but hey, it was my first one. So here’s my latest one. I had his picture up a few days ago but ended up redoing him and like him better now. Not so washed out looking and very sweet and innocent. I re-worked this wig too so that it would be more boyish. Gave it a haircut and turned it on it’s side. I may still get another wig for him as this one is kind of funky.

So today was quite a happy doll day. I finally got Princess a’ La mode after a few months of buying her. She was waiting on the release of Momoko Slow Smile Traditional. That release was delayed quite a bit so PAM now named Midori was waiting in Japan for a while. I guess you can say it was an early Christmas for me. Such colorful girls. Who knew I’d be drawn to fantasy hair color.
