Re: Kustom dolls (updated 1/30/16) X-men: Rogue!!
« Reply #21 on: January 30, 2016, 08:52:49 PM »
Here she is! Rogue is finally here!! She's my favorite X-man! I'm very happy with how she came out, this was my FIRST time Sewing an entire outfit!
That's right. This complete head-to-toe doll was made by me. ^_^ Reroot, shoes, outfit, I hand sew her leather jacket! She's got better clothes them ME!  :blush:


Please tell me what you think.




[Please keep in mind, my sewing machine is considered an antique, from the 1970's, it's older then most people on this site. I had a very difficult time working on this outfit's fabric. I'm unfamiliar with such old 'technology' and it was my first time using a sewing machine. Most if this fit was sewn by hand due to this.]

What do I think?  What do I think?!

:squee:
^ That's what I think!! LOL

She looks fan-tastic! 
Her hair is spot-on.  Her outfit is immediately recognizable.  And for your first time sewing an outfit like that?  C'mon.  That's awesome sauce. :biggrin:

She looks amazing! You sewed the outfit with an antique machine and/or by hand? It looks freaking fabulous! :dropjaw:

Re: Kustom dolls (updated 1/30/16) ROGUE
« Reply #25 on: January 31, 2016, 08:48:08 AM »
 :inlove: Thank you very much! :inlove:

And yep! Because i wanted it to be Skin-Tight, like it is in the comic/tv show is had to sew the outfit on to the doll and pull the fabric by hand.
I was very confused with the machine as well...  ^^; I looked at it for literally two days just to figure out how it worked and where to put the thread!

Her jacket is a really nice brown pleather material and very tough to get the needle through, but that was my favorite part since it was the fastest item I made. lol  i used both a pattern, and a costume youtube video to help with HOW to construct the Suit.

She looks pretty darn good!
So pretty and her custom so accurate!

Since at the time CAMs where easy and simple ways to Custom Dolls, I used them for inspiration. (I was just starting out, and Liv Wigs fit a bit loosly, but it was all I had at the time.)

My little cousin thought this one up. (She Chose her name.) She's so cute! I really Like Green and Blond hair.

This CAM I remember going bonkers trying to find her body that matched the rest on her parts. I found them on the Mattel wed site. Where you received 4 Torsos. I still have a few of them.  White, Blue, Purple and Pink where the torsos

I love the name Cursula!  The MH name puns are one of my favorite things about them.

Oh they look nice!  I love Cursula's blond hair.  It looks awesome with her skin color.

The green and blonde is an interesting combination. It's like green and pink! I wouldn't think it would work, but it totally does. :D

Thank you very much.

The Sea Monster had a better wig on before... I just  can't seem to find it. I feel she needs a name too. Any suggestions?

Tentaclara or Tentaclarissa? Abalone-igail? Mar-sea? Pacifica, if you're a fan of Gravity Falls!

And of course, if she sticks with the pink wig, you could just go with Coral.

I have a new custum on the way to its new home!! Kara ZorEl and i are doing an exchange. Ill be receiving the most groovy Troll doll ever, my very first original character, Tori Underbridge!!! Im so excited! :inlove:


 As you can see from her fantastic custom doll thread, shes pretty amazing at making dolls. And she often makes these dolls of ocs for dear, close friends.

This was one of many reasons i wanted to send her a beautiful doll of her very own. Often sending dolls but seldom on the receiving end.  While i couldn't get her an oc doll, I Could still make her a beloved character.

Star Wars' BB-8!! [I dont wish to spoil the surprise, but images are coming soon.] I'd like to first give her the opportunity to open her gift first.

For now, please re-imagine Elle Eedee as Monster High's newest Ghoul at school BB-8. :)

I got her in the mail yesterday.  I may have cried just a little bit because she's so amazing.

She had to come and meet Atomica Servo right away, of course! 



And here is her bio that came with her:




I'm just stunned at how pretty she is!

You have no idea how happy I am that you like her. It makes me feel so wonderful that you like your gift!

I hope the next recpiant will like her gift as well!

This is a partial reroot on Lagoona. She chose the doll she liked and I added some new hilights to make her more special. I hope she likes the colors. It's for a young girl who is new to my best friends family.
