I have completed another Frightfully Tall Ghoul.  This is Aubrey Darksongborne, my dark elf Elissabat.
Her face-up has been modified (I darkened her eyebrows and upper eyelids, repainted her eyes from fuchsia to red, and painted over her fangs), her hair has been boil-washed and cut, and I made her a custom top and skirt.

I really wanted to give her elongated elf ears, but both of my attempts at sculpting ears for her were a bust.  It's still something that I'd like to do for her one day, but I think that she looks good enough for now. :)

Oooh! She's fantastic! And that outfit is so great!

I'm curious, how tall do the shoes make her next to other "normal" FT MH dolls? Are they appreciably higher in the platform or heel?

Thank you, Glowa and Lhia. ^.^

They actually don't raise her up that much at all.  I stood her up next to Frankie and Draculaura (who are both wearing their stock shoes) and she's only about 1.5cm taller than them in her boots.  So it definitely raises her up a bit, but not by a lot.

Beautiful work! I'm in love with her clothes! Also her hair looks amazing!
For her ears maybe you can cheat a bit and come up with some earings like the ones that were put on Cerise Wolf. The shape and sculpting creates the illusion of wolf ears, and it might be less complicated than direct sculpting

I had thought about trying something along those lines, but wasn't sure how best to go about it. 
Maybe I could use a pair of Frankie or Draculaura's earrings and sculpt onto them?  I'm not sure how to give the ears an earring post. :huh:

Just to be clear, I think she looks amazing as she is, I'm just coming up with suggestions based on your pointy ears comments ^^U
I think that given her size maybe she can use actual people earrings. Kids got plastic earrings in small sizes that might help. Or make ear clips

Well thank you very much. ^.^

I just feel like there's nothing about her that reads "elf" right now, you know?  (I guess the red eyes do give away that she's not human. lol)
She does technically have pointed ears already, they're just completely hidden by her hair. :P

And thank you so much for the advice!  Those are both amazing ideas!  I think the elf ear clips would work perfectly.  I'm going to have to search through my craft supplies and see if I have small gauge wire.

That is absolutely okay!  I'm excited to see yours! :D

I was thinking of calling her Morel (gloom/Darkness/night +female) or Morguleth (Black Magic/ Necromancy+female) and giving her a similar hairstyle to Aubrey and the red eyes that seems normal for a dark elf, plus under eye markings down her cheeks like Sylvanas Windrunner from WoW. What do you think?

Ooo, I think that sounds like a fantastic idea!  Especially with the Sylvanas/Night Elf facial markings. 
And I love the name Morel! <3




I've completed another 17" custom doll, this time a Barbie rather than a ghoul.

Her name is Lori Winters.  Her irises have been darkened and her lips lightened.  Her eye makeup has been changed from shades of pink to shades of brown.  And her blush has been removed.

I also cut her hair, removed the purple plugs along her part line, and painted her fingernails.




I lost the light today and couldn't photograph her full outfit; but I'll post full-body pics as soon as I can get outside for a shoot.

Morel Mythiril will be her name, Mythiril being after a friend of mine whose character was called Fire Princess Mythiril who passed away a few years back.

Are you going to make Aubrey a Cloak to go with her wardrobe? I love her dress.

Oh I like that name a lot.  And the inspiration behind it is so sweet.

I was actually thinking about making a sort of hooded cloak/poncho for Aubrey.  I thought that that would finish off her outfit nicely.
And thank you. ^.^


As a side note, I decided to change Aubrey's surname from Darksong to Darkborne.  I dunno, "Aubrey Darkborne" has a nicer ring to it.  And Darksong didn't really fit her personality very well considering that she isn't musically-inclined in the slightest.

I finally got around to photographing Lori's complete outfit. ^^;

I got a little lazy with the jacket.  I didn't feel like sewing a brand new coat or blouse for her, so I just added some buttons to a Ken Fashionistas coat and called it a day. XD

She looks great - i love the yellow of her outfit with the dark tone of her skin and hair.  And she wears glasses!  So cool!

It is!  I love those little keychain/coinpurse things!  Every time I see a new one I pick it up for my dolls. :biggrin:

The truck is an Our Generation Sweet Stop Ice Cream Truck.  Isn't it perfect for her?  I've become somewhat obsessed with Our Generation stuff for my 17" dolls. heehee

Thank you so much.  I'm so glad that you like it. ^.^

I THOUGHT it was the Our Generation truck!! Been lusting after that one. Yup, alot of the OG stuff is nice for 16-18 inchers.

I got two Target keychain handbags, a purple and a bronze, plus a bronze for a friend. And a little round zipper case in pale pink with black trim that will be a suitcase/hatbox for my Rochelle Goyles.

The yellow is very Spring-ish. Daffodils!

BTW where did Lori's boots come from? Love them! Will they also work with 17" MH??
