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…
– 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…
First draft of the Girl On Fire dress, using what ever fabrics I had at home, so it is by all means not a screen accurate version… though doubt a barbie size would ever be… It lacks the tulle, as I only have white and fear if it is home dyed to red, it might stain the doll. Also wondering if the flames in the skirt tail should be made with glue and glitter (glitter, glitter everywhere) or maybe it’s possible to find f.ex. nail art pieces that would work.
It is Katniss Everdeen doll. Can’t wait repainting her, and doing something with her hair, the goddess headsculpt .is so pretty!
Second version of Mockingjay costume is in progress, (real feathers, or fabric?) and I think I’ll also make the light blue reaping dress, it is quite pretty in it’s simplicity.
so maybe something else this year, but what? Even though mostly miniature patterns are published here, it is always possible to scale them up to life size, they will make a bit clumsy clothing but maybe that’s enough for costumes…
I’m asking this early, so that I can actually finish the pattern/ tutorial in time to also eave time for people to make them as well before Halloween.
Police woman costume for barbie doll… birthstone beauty barbie was perfect for the silly kiss-a-gram Amy Pond (Doctor Who)
Summer dress for barbie size playscale doll, monster high doll dresses including marie antoinette style fashion, and the newest doll size I now offer: Fashion Roaylty (6th scale) here a classic two piece silk dress, and a shirt that is made from very thin/sheer material I have to handstitch to make delicate… They’re up for another 4 days; open for taking custom orders as well 🙂
These I made maybe 4 years ago, today I have tweaked doll patterns, and managed to get a little better at miniature sewing.
Next week, I am working on a commission of making some historical style clothing for both male and female playscale dolls, patterned new bodices and even a pannier (side cage) for a Barbie to be able to achieve the famous wide Rococo dresses!
If interested in dolls and/or historical fashion in miniature, stay tuned 🙂
Depending how long the making of takes and whether I start enjoying hand stitching, I might start making more commissions or put doll clothing to Etsy in the future
