Caprice Whimcanter Frightmare head swap Custom!
« on: July 09, 2017, 08:32:41 PM »




Body: azone picco neemo

Paint: light blue acrylic with top coat of nail polish in “moonstone”

Head: Frightmare: Caprice Whimcanter

Clothes: SweetieBelle Eq Girl dress


My first custom I'm so proud!! :blush:

I ordered a picco neemo body awhile ago for a hybrid that didn't work out. I've had the body flopping around ever since.
Until I thought, wait what if the Frightmares would work?

A trip to Five Below later, also where I got the nail polish.

Here's my blog where I'm posting about her too.

That's so cool! I had never thought of head-swapping a Frightmare... And her legwarmers even still fit!

Nice work! I kind of want to try this with the deer-themed Frightmare, now. X3

Very creative and cool! How did you feel about the nail polish going on? Does it seem relatively permanent? I'm investigating some for a custom that involves nail polish, but I haven't seen much on how it applies and how well it lasts!

She looks perfect!  Great job on your first custom!

Do you think that body is the right size to upgrade kelpie or Pawla?

I don't know I don't have either.

What I do know is this picture of reference from my friend TristaStrange vs my picture of Luna and Caprice






Picco Neemos are also quite skinny and not toddler/child body. More like older kid with clothes on, or preteen.





So up to you.

I may ask my friend if she has any Frightmare size comparisons vs Pawla.

Ah she's in the spare parts pile?

I was surprised at what articulation Frightmares did have, but I guess a random centaur form isn't the worst thing to have lying around.

Feels that way to me, makes for a good self finishing paint imo.

There wasn't much info on painting dolls with nail polish I've found.

The only thing is that if it's too thick around joints it's a little on the gummy side and I had to take a break from fumes while painting.

But overall seems good. The knee joints actually slide over it without damage so I'm good.

Is that pic of Caprice with blue head but white body the Before the nail polish went on? Can you post a similar After pic with the nail polish on?

I'm kinda intrigued by the nail polish idea….did you use a couple of thin coats? Any base coat or top coat or sealant?

Who or what is the tiny Wolf Cub? I wonder if it's like with dogs, they have oversized paws when they're little that they 'grow into' as adults?  lol

Might have to hit a Five Below soon….Frightmares have been there recently….

This is the main one I have on hand.
She's a few layers of thin light blue acrylic(that wound up being too dark overall) topped with one layer of nail polish. No sealant. Nail polish is pretty self sealing.

Wolf cub is Pawla from the Monster Family line.

That picture is very helpful, thank you!  I may look at swapping in some joints on Pawla in the future.

I'm fairly certain there's another picco neemo, either D or S, that has much larger hands and feet (srsly I think it'd be great for your needs) on a body with a cartoonish less mature build. I know that someone (here?) used one of them for (pretty sure) their Novi Star custom once upon a time.

I was looking into them so I could get a Shoppie to be my wheelchair buddy, but wasn't able to find out where to buy or if they're even still made. If you google/ image search Novi Star customs I'm sure you'll find what I'm talking about.

A Pawla would look so cute on one!


She looks perfect!  Great job on your first custom!
