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

Those are BJD boots.  I got them on eBay, but the same pair is available through Alice's Collections as well.

That particular pair is for YoSD dolls and will not fit the 17" ghouls.  But they will, ironically enough, fit regular-sized MH and EAH dolls.
For 17" MH dolls look for MSD shoes.  They fit perfectly!

We recently had a discussion on which BJD shoes fit which MH dolls (http://mharena.com/index.php/topic,13052.msg267796.html#msg267796).

My daughter asked me to repaint her FdC Gooliope.

Unlike the other repaints in this thread, which are really just modifications of the existing stock face-up, this doll was completely wiped and repainted from scratch.

Ooooooh, deFRIGHTful! She looks very modern & cool. Is your daughter happy with the new look?  :cool:

BTW, thanks to you and Lori, I checked out the Barbie 17 inchers at TRU last weekend. They look pretty nice.

Thank you. ^.^

My daughter loves her.  She was telling me this morning how pretty she is now. :blush:  So she's pretty happy with her. :biggrin:

lol  I'm glad that Lori and I inspired you to take a look at them. :biggrin:  I love Mattel's 17" dolls so much. <3

She. Looks. So. Good. Your lines are so intensely clean and I adore that shade of purple lip you've given her! It's subtle, but really quirky and sweet.

I've repainted another 17" Endless Hair Kingdom Barbie.
I started by removing her hair, blush, and eyebrows.  I repainted her eyebrows, changed her irises from blue to brown, and painted her upper eyelids in shades of grey and sage green.  I darkened her upper and lower eyelashes, as well as the crease of her upper eyelid.  Her lips have been glossed but are otherwise unaltered.
I wigged her in a size 6/7 Leeke World Miranda in natural black and chocolate brown.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Love your 'brown-eyed girl' SaelaVe! Do you have a Before pic? And for removing her hair, did you have to take her head off and dig glue/hair plugs out from inside?

Great wig!

Thank you. ^.^
Unfortunately, no, I don't have a before shot.  I always forget to take photos before I start customizing 'cause I'm so impatient to get started. ^^;
But here is her Amazon listing so that you can see what she originally looked like:
https://www.amazon.com/Barbie-Dreamtopia-Endless-Hair-Kingdom/dp/B01CJKRFZG/ref=sr_1_4?ie=UTF8&qid=1493654712&sr=8-4&keywords=endless+hair+kingdom+barbie



And for removing her hair, did you have to take her head off and dig glue/hair plugs out from inside?

I did.  I could've just cut the hair as close to the scalp as possible and wigged her without ever removing her head; but my original plan had been to re-root her, so I prepped her for a re-root before deciding to go with a wig instead.

Oh wow, flipping back and forth between stock and your version makes me like her even more! Your faceup is so smooth and even, looks original to the doll. Beautiful!

She looks so pretty :)
Like an everyday casual look  <3

:o Gooliope's face looks like the "canon" looks, factory made but 1000 times better!

And the Barbie was very much improved too!
