So Close!

September 10, 2016

And yet so far! I’m almost done with my latest custom.  I carved.  I sanded. I sanded some more. And more.

Finally the make-up. Shading, airbrushing, eyebrows. Will I do freckles?  I don’t know.

I still have eye-chips to do and some other odds and ends. This is the part where I get excited and impatient. Stay tuned…

Custom Meowsy Wowsy

She hasn’t a name yet but she’s as cute as can be. I’m real happy with how she came out.

Back in Business

Well, I’m back from IFDC and all those pressing projects and commissions are finally out of the way,(except for Iveta’s…haven’t forgot about you my dear ;-)).

I feel like I can breathe again and decided I will accept commissions again on a very limited basis. I’ve decided I’ll accept two a month and already it looks like August and September are booked so I have 4 more openings for the rest of the year. This means that if you send a doll for me to do during your month it will be completed the same month. I was falling so far behind that that wasn’t always the case.

This will be for face-ups only. I may accept 1 or 2 re-root commissions here and there but it will be a longer wait from when the doll is received.

I’m taking the rest of July off and will work on projects here and there. Perhaps paint my family room and bathroom. Also I want to get back into other forms of creative expression. So maybe I’ll do some artwork. Wherever the wind takes me I suppose.

Now, I briefly mentioned my friend Iveta. She also goes by the title “dolly pimp.” Well, her photography is featured on a clothing line website. Congrats Iveta!

In a Corner

In a corner, originally uploaded by sylviecola(trying to catch up.).

Meet Lucy Limeade. Remember a week or two ago I mentioned the factory or proto-type Blythes that I was expecting? Well here she is. Actually,  it’s just her scalp put on a Simply Lilac bait Blythe I had lying around. I’m deciding what to do with the faceplate she came with. I believe it is Tarts and Tea’s. It looks to be natural and the only one that matched to the pictures.

When my factory girls came they had some flaws with the eye-mech where they weren’t turning properly. I have since fixed the little problems.

The other doll I got was a Ribbonetta Wish Scalp on Urban Cowgirl. The eye lids also are RW’s. I’m deciding what to do with her. I fixed her hair. She didn’t have the bangs cut and not much thatching was in place so I sorted that out. I had to give her bangs because her thatching stops midway because she was meant to have thick bangs.

For now I plan to keep my Amaryllis girl. Normally, I find it difficult to bond with my customs unless their make-up is very light. But with this hair, I just have to enjoy it for a while.

The Power of Green

Agua get’s a makeover, originally uploaded by sylviecola(trying to catch up.).

No, I’m not talking about money…well not directly. I’m talking green hair. Anytime I’ve customized a doll with green hair and then offer her up for sale or even before she’s been offered up, the doll gets snatched up pretty fast.

This pretty girl in the picture is my customized Simply Peppermint, Agua.  Alas, she’s mine no longer and is actually on her way to Australia.  ‘

I wasn’t initially planning on selling her but the previous doll I finished up, Frankie Freckle Face, became too irresistible to sell so I decided to keep her for now.  And after an impulse buy or two,  I had to put another girl in her place.  Agua volunteered. My house is too crazy for her I guess.

I will miss her.  However,  I’m waiting for a factory doll,(impulse buy,)  that has Amaryllis’ hair and I’ve been itching to add her to my collection. Plus since this doll is a factory/prototype doll, I don’t have to feel guilty about customizing her since Amaryllis is quite expensive.

Back to green hair. I guess it’s no coincidence that of all the fantasy colors CWC uses, different shades of green seems to be one of the most frequently used. Pink is actually used the most for fantasy colors and then I think green is next.

This is a new girl I sneaked in some time to work on.  She’s a custom Primadolly Winsome Willow. As her name suggests, her face is covered in freckles.  She doesn’t like to wear make-up but I managed to convince her that some blush and lip gloss would look nice. Of course, it had to be flavored lip gloss.

I gave her this girlie haircut, four new sets of eye-chips and she’s been gaze adjusted, boggled and sleep eyed. Her eyelashes match her hair color.

I’ll probably make her available soon. She’s kind of irresistible. Just deciding on what to dress her in. For some reason I’m thinking Brady Bunch but that’s because Winsome Willow reminds me of Marsha Marsha Marsha when her hair is uncut. She does have that 70’s look about her.
