Crunch Time

March 12, 2009

Maggie's girl

I know it’s been a while since I’ve posted last but I’ve been working on stuff and the latest is a mohair custom I finished for a customer. I’m really pleased with her outcome. Mohair is tricky to work with and gets matted so easily so it takes me a while to detangle it after finishing the rooting. She has a Cool Cat scalp and eye chips and was previously a Prima Dolly Aubrena. I airbrushed her make-up in pinkish tones including some airbrushing on the lips. I must admit she’s pretty dreamy and I wanted to play with her more but her owner didn’t waste any time paying for her so off she went just as soon as she was finished.

I say crunch time because I’m expecting any day now so I had to get as much done as possible before the new living dolly make his entrance. This may keep me away for a while although I hope not and hope to get back to work after some recovery time. In fact, I’m expecting the new set of Prima dollies toward the end of the month so hopefully that will motivate me to get back to work. Or at least provide some much needed doll therapy.

I’ve also had many people ask if I’ll be putting up more episodes of The Chronicles of Judith and my answer is yes, I hope so! Probably slow but definitely plan to continue for as long as my sister writes for it and my husband is willing to do music for it.

But for now I prepare for the new one which will definitly keep me busy. Until then, sianara!

Musical Scalps

January 13, 2009

Coco

This stunning beauty above is Miss Sally Rice with Milky Sugar Way’s scalp and then I gave her bangs because I’m partial for bangs. She has the hair I want. The color is so rich. I had played around with different scalps for her and I’m finally settling on this one. Her previous scalp was Velvet Minuet’s I had laying around. VM ended up getting Merry Skier’s scalp which was then dyed to black and turned into “Goth girl for Iveta”

So where did VM’s scalp go?

HH custom

Here it is. The custom Hello Harvest that I’ve been working on for now what would be a year has finally settled on VM’s scalp with this paige boy hair cut. She now has a totally mod look to her. She’ll be available for sale soon. I’m just waiting on a custom dress for her. Do message me if interested.

She originally had her own scalp dyed red and then given bangs but now the scalpless Merry Skier will get that I think.  The RBL’s and SBL’s scalps are molded the same. It’s just a matter of prying them off their domes.

So, that’s the story of musical scalps.

Petworks Momokos 007

Happy Friday everyone. Hope all that celebrate Halloween had a fun time tricker treating and such.

Today’s momoko is 02SPpk. She is the special Hara Museum version. There were five versions of this doll. Basically the same doll with different color shirt dresses and shoes. Their hair is slightly different on each doll too. I found her off Yahoo Japan and for some reason no one else bid on her so I got her for close to the original list price. She’s turned out to be a favorite. She’s so much cuter than I was expecting. I love it when that happens!

I finished a Blythe custom. It started out as my own project. I like to think about whether I’ll sell the doll or not but a customer said if I was doing a blonde one she’d buy her. I was already re-rooting this one in blonde. She came back to me and said she would buy her and then sent me a deposit so it turned into a commission. But I still got to go with my original ideas for the most part as the customer trusted my tastes and doesn’t like to “direct” the artist too much but instead let the artist decide.

So… here she is and there she went. Off to her new mommy. I’ll get to see pictures of her and maybe at a meet in the future. It’s always fun to see what the customer re-dresses the dolls in.

She has been completely re-rooted. She started off as a Hello Harvest and has airbrushed make-up, repainted lips, new eyelashes and her stock eye chips were switched around. Also sleep eyes were added.

Well that’s all for now. Have a great weekend!

FS-nude custom folklore

This is Lovely Folklore who had originally been without bangs and new lipstick. I like her much better this way. She is available for sale and as soon as I can figure out why she’s not showing up on my sale page she’ll be available there as well. Before then you can always contact me through flickr mail or email.

I plan on getting to some blythes here pretty soon. I like the change of pace to keep things interesting. I’m excited for the arrival of Dainty Biscuit and hopefully I’ll have some more time to take some B pics next week amid the re-root and repaint commissions still waiting. Here’s one of my latest commissions- another Beach Rodeo. She’s the most popular one ot re-root. They just don’t have enough tan momokos that are reasonably priced. There is Wild Sexy tune but she’s not too popular with collectors. Hopefully Sekiguchi will make more tan girls in the future.
