Just a quick tutorial or tip on making a doll size head piece for Halloween – Cat’s ears, Devil’s Horns, crowns… etc
Sorry for long hiatus that is still going on… and I apologize for broken pictures in the blog. Photobucket has suddenly changed into pay-to-use and unfortunately I have no spoons to blog nor try to find new place to copy all the old pics and then manually fix the links here. It hasn’t been very good couple of years for me but hey I’m still here. Sort of.
EDIT. you should still be able to see the pictures if you click the broken pictures!
And sorry it’s been a while… a huge while I’ve been ill. I don’t think I can yet be fully back, but I will try to restore some of the presence little by little. Even got that little MD BJD Mei hoping she’d inspire some new sewing as well, being slightly bigger than fashion dolls to hopefully enabling slightly easier sewing projects to start with again.
Instagram however isn’t helping me at all, it doesn’t seem to work even the little it worked before (they don’t like windows 8.1 phones it seems) and they actually blocked me from using their help page when I tried to find help to that issue 😦 The attitude of instagram/facebook group never ceases to amaze me…
Thank you for sticking with me!
What happens when you plan on taking a few shots of your new dolls – and un-expected short story starts to form 😀
And while ago I was sad because had lost the ability to play… but apparently you can learn again.
Veronique was used for scale when she decided otherwise…
Qui-Gon:’I am jedi master Qui-Gon Jinn, this is my apprentice Obi-Wan Kenobi. We seem to have lost some of our belongings to this blonde…’
Xmasman:’Nice to meet you! Happy Xmas! I can help you!’
Obi-Wan: (aaand I looked at his crotch)
Obi-Wan:’Master, are you sure we can trust him, there is something very peculiar about this man.’
Qui-Gon:’Never judge a book by it’s cover.’
Obi-Wan:’…this one didn’t have much cover’
Qui-Gon: ‘Just because you prefer dressing up in layers doesn’t mean everyone else should do the same.’
Qui-Gon: ‘You’re the one who looked at his crotch, not him.’
Hope you enjoyed this little ridiculousness brought to you by the childlike glee of getting your hands on miniature Liam Neeson and Ewan McGregor. And apparently, an Xmasman…
I am quite happy, already got three commissions to make this month and it’s only beginning of month 😀
Also, got incredibly happy opening a package from ebay… I found something I wanted so much as a kid but couldn’t afford.
Don’t tell me this isn’t the first thing you do when getting new dolls 😀
I was only curious to see the articulation of these action figures you know…
Qui-Gon Jinn, 13″. I always went to admire this doll when I was a kid and went to town. Well, I was in junior high when the phantom menace came out so young teen… Lol the lovely age when you proudly still had Spice Girls and kitten posters up but started to make room for Ewan Mcgregor in suggestive poses x| I didn’t have any dolls back them, but I would have made an exception for Qui-Gon… He’s my absolute favorite jedi in all of star wars. Not that I’m superficial, but it doesn’t hurt he also looks like Liam Neeson.
Okay, I’ll try to get pics of them with clothes as well… Here’s their very first adventure when arriving and making contact with a local doll on instagram: https://instagram.com/p/9n_WTRkCJS/
– the long slumbering star wars fan in me. So, after crying over the wonderful The Force Awakens trailer, I took a brunette Barbie doll and tried to paint her as Rey.
Not perfect, considering trying to transfer a generic barbie face, but if and when the actual Daisy Ridley face sculpts (oh how I wish for a doll and not some ugly action figures) appear, they would be so nice to repaint and most likely to gain nice resemblance. In the meantime, this Rey doll brightens up my day, waiting for the movie 🙂
And no, I don’t have tickets… I don’t have anyone to go with so I didn’t want to try to get opening night tickets for the fear my social anxiety might prevent me from going alone
And then there would be an empty seat at the opening. Not fair for the one who didn’t get a ticket.
It really has been that bad lately, I’ll just try covering my ears from gossip after opening and sneak in to see a day show some time soon…
Made her clothes out of what ever I had at home at the time… so not accurate (yet) but I think something she could wear.//embedr.flickr.com/assets/client-code.js
If you are on deviantart and like fashion dolls – or not yet have an account but might like to join, it’s like a social media/ art portfolio platform but with people posting their art and creations instead of selfies 😀
Here is the BarbieFans deviantArt group I was asked to moderate, otherwise it might have been closed. Wouldn’t want that… Instead, there is now fantastic Barbie doll customization gallery, and even the genius that is Noel Cruz submits to the group 😀 In the Gallery you got to scroll Barbie and doll photos and fan art people have submitted.
If you’re new to dA, I’m happy to help you with the site 🙂 I know, it pretty much still looks the same it did 7 years ago when I joined… but unlike most social media today, there is very little trolling or bullying. Artist want to encourage each other!
The age limit to join is 13 (like everything online) and I believe mature filter is set on by default, and you have to manually set it off if you wish to explore the more saucy art posted there.
BarbieFans group however does not allow mature content at all.
