I loved Vandala's face in the box, but didn't like the huge baby-pink scorpion that seemed to be climbing up her torso. Fortunately, I saw a stunning repaint on Tumblr (http://handmade-from-ooak-tree.tumblr.com/post/142624158875/finally-had-some-spare-time-to-repaint-vandalas) and I got inspired to bring her home and try my hand at making her accessories... better.

This is the result.

Thank you, everyone! I'm pretty pleased with how she turned out, considering that other than a few pairs of shoes, I've never repainted anything before. The peg leg particularly shows so much detail when repainted! ^.^
KK, I wanted to do a lighter colour scheme to not deviate much from Vandala's pastel body/hair colourway, I'm glad it worked. :)

So lovely! Great job! Did you use acrylics? Did you have to sand or spray first to keep it from chipping? Repainting Vandala's gear is on my to do list... thank you for inspiring me!

I really like the colors that you chose I love how cohesive the colors are and how everything melds together perfectly.
She looks great! I especially like her belt and her pegleg :)


I painted my Vanadala too hope you check it out  http://mharena.com/index.php/topic,11290.msg243019.html#msg243019

I think it's cool how different she can look with the different paint styles.

SirenaAmber, yes, I used water-based, cold-set acrylics. I didn't sand or prime the base before, and so far I've seen no symptoms of chipping, but I'm handling the accessories gently. Thank you, and I hope to see your repaint soon!

Thank you, GejiGeji, and great repaint, I love your skullettes! It is funny how many different we can make the same set of accessories with just a little paint.

I have to admit I'm still not that fond of the chest piece, it's unweildy and doesn't sit well, so I'm very tempted to snip it from the belt to make it two separate pieces, do y'all think that'd work?

Thank you, mozekyto! I was amazed at how much detail emerged when I got rid of the baby pink!

Amazing work!  The colors that you chose look fantastic with Vandala's coloring.  Great job! :D

Thank you, PJSparkles! You should definitely get Vandala, she has such a sweet face and her accessories are wonderfully sculpted! *enables*  :P

Since this was such a success, I've kept repainting MH accessories, mostly shoes. They have so much potential, and it feels wrong to have a gorgeous doll sit with a big hunk of hot pink plastic on her feet!

Marisol. I wanted to do something classy and versatile for her, since who knows when we'll get more shoes her size!



Vandala, as seen above. I just love it!



Gilda. Very simple, but I like how the satin finish looks like leather.



Student Disembody Council Cleo wanted to make sure you saw the sole of her Lou-boo-tins.



Student Disembody Council Scarah, my first repaint attempt.



Student Disembody Council Lagoona's shoes have been commandeered by Lala.



Scaris Skelita's suitcase. Isn't it lovely?



I have a few more shoes in the works, then I plan to move onto furniture, and then... who knows?  ^.^

*swoon* Ooooh these are so amazing! You make me actually want to painstakingly paint those teensy details!! Or maybe save up and commission your services. ;) Heh. But really, they are goreous! You really show just how lovely the accessories are.

Thank you, Sirenamber! For me painting all the itty-bitty things is as relaxing as a colouring book, with the advantage I can display them when I'm done. You should try it too (or commission me, since my prices would be an extra pair of shoes and a bag of doritos! ;))
Leenetje, what a difference a bit of paint can make, right? Thanks!  ^.^
And kurojaki, thank you!  :blush:
