Crunch Time

Advertisements

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!

03AN

I just realized it’s been at least a week since my last post. Here’s 03AN Momoko. She was not on my list of wants but crept in as I saw more pictures of her and decided to make her my next Momoko. And just like that she came as a result of a trade. She looks really good in hats and can fit in them pretty well since she has little bulk in hair.

On the project front I’ve been taking some personal time working on my own stuff in between commissions. I do appreciate those awaiting their dolls spa treatment patience so I can recharge my batteries. Here’s a Blythe doll that’s been a work in progress for a while. She’s previously a Tailor Gibson and has had her hair dyed several times. The problem with Tailor’s hair is the greenish cast that is almost impossible to get rid of. I kind of like this ashy color so I think she’s done. I’ll probably post her for sale on my website. But here’s her picture in the meantime.

Yay for Trades!!!

So I put a ban on getting any new dolls for the rest of the year which I was doing pretty good so far but we still have a little less than 2 months to go and the doll makers like to release some temptations right before Christmas. Somehow, I’ve ended up with 4 new dolls BUT… they were trades. I finally got the chance to get one of the highly coveted Bonus Truck girls- BT06 black. I could also get the red girl which was the one I wanted the most but I’d have to let go of my Daisy to do that and I just can’t bring myself to do it. Since I have my copy I can’t really justify it so that one will probably slip through my fingers. I am thrilled, however, to add the black version to my collection. I had to let go of 02KF but she was a somewhat neglected girl and her new owner really wanted her. I also acquired Victorian Nature Red. Said goodbye to another neglected girl Jelly Beans Momoko so hopefully she’ll be more lavished upon in her new abode. In another trade I received 03AN and Nadiff Momoko. I’ll post pics of them soon. It’s been a great week in trades!

I have a new custom Momoko I did. She’s had a complete overhall. She came to me as an already customized Out with Puppy and I decided to go my own way with her so I had to remove all her paint and repainted her. I still wanted her to have the Momoko look and tried to be as close to factory as I humanly could. She already had her hair removed by the previous owner so I re-rooted her and styled her with in a retro flip. So here she is. She is available for sale on my website.
