The wave pattern on Gil's jacket is actually an iron-on decal!  I scanned Skull Shores Gil's board shorts to get the pattern, cleaned it up a little in photoshop, and then printed it out on an iron-on transfer.  Both Slo-Mo and Gil are wearing Heath Burns jackets with new sleeves sewn on.  Thanks for the kind words! :biggrin:

I modified Heath Burns jackets (bought off eBay) to match the other mansters.





They look amazing, that is what I want to do but am really not crafty :(

How do you make the new bit of sleeve?

I used a seam ripper to separate the pieces of the jacket, traced the old sleeve to make a pattern.  Then I cut out the sleeves in a black fabric as close to the original as I could find, and re-sewed the whole thing back together.

It was easier than it sounds!

a guy with slightly unnatural color https://flic.kr/p/nuyo1R

The customs I want to make are usually my PR OCs, but big toy companies are always throwing a monkey wrench into my plans and I get frustrated.

Though I have the idea of turning the KuuKuu Harajuku Girls into individualized Hogwarts students. Girls only but still I think it'd be cute.

But before I do any of that...I have to actually want to do anything with dolls again. I decided to take the year off from dolly things

Would like to see a custom catty noir with her fierce rockers shattered makeup effect but spread out more across her body. Also I would like to see more custom howleen without ripping her ears off or changing her species. ( sort of like a kawaii howleen cx )

I'd love customs of the parents, also i want to make a few of my non-human oc's and i'd love to make teen wolf customs using dc superhero girls and eah boys, also vocaloid's into dolls, but i feel like the multiple versions of the vocaloids would make it super hard to choose which one to create... I'd love to see backgrounders as well. I love it. when people take a character we've only seen a few times and turn it into someone who could be on the main cast!

How do you mean? Just a more detailed Howleen? Or more Howleens in general?

I rebodied a Dance Class Howleen onto a G1 Cleo body and loved the end result (Cleo's head is in the process of being rerooted and will go on the Howleen body in the end). I know someone else put Howleen's head onto a Cerise body with great success as well. Slightly grown-up Howleen is a cutie!

I'm talking about her same body. Firecracker made a really cute howleen ooak and reroot. Sadly, she got sold a little before I asked and took down the pictures so you will have to ask her for a pic of her. I do agree a slightly grown up howleen is cute c: I currently have 5 howleen from different lines and all I need is ghoul fair and family pack :) ( yes I really wuv that cute pupp :howl: I'm probably going to get some metallic silver paint and paint catty with her same shattered glass makeup effect :D

Same.  I'm currently working on a custom of Clawdeen's mom.

Dollightful on YouTube has been making a bunch of Pokemon inspired dolls lately. Here's Eevee; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iz-zdLR9DzU
Maybe she'll do a Tsareena eventually?

I've got a bunch of customs I want to make, but I have trouble finding the motivation to do them. I'd love to make some Harry Potter dolls, but if you want to be consistent with the type of dolls, it's hard to find a line with as many boys as girls (and also has articulation).

Well... boys are really the main "problem", but EAH, Descendants and MH are sort of compatible, which gives about 9 diferent guys. (bit more if you also include MyScene guys, Jake from Liv and Hasbro Prince... well Kristoff...) you would only need to chose which girls you like with them better(I personally like the Descendants the most)

Aaah I have so many of these ideas, but I've been slacking so much with customizing lately....

My main goal is to make Dipper and Mabel customs from Gravity Falls. I actually have at least their heads already!! I wanted them to be cartoony, more child-like, and 1/6 scale to fit with my other dolls, so I'm using the Disney Animator mini heads and pure neemo xs bodies. (I've tried at least one faceup on Dipper but I'm still figuring out the right style...)

I saw someone use a Strawberry shortcake head rebodied onto an EAH body to make Star Butterfly but I can't for the life of me figure out where I saw it. It looked amazing though-- she had the right face shape and lots of space to draw her cartoony eyes.

I'd also love to make Astrid and Hiccup from HTTYD-- and a poseable Toothless to go with them, but that seems like so much work, and I've never tried to make a poseable art doll myself.... I think Merida would be a good base for Astrid but I'm stumped for Hiccup-- he has such a distinctive nose I guess I'd have to sculpt it myself.

Anyway it's fun to plan all of these customs (even if realistically I won't follow through lololol) I still have so many unfinished projects....

Update: I FOUND THE ARTIST

I don't think they ever finished making her but here's the post I saw at least.... I think it's spot on for a base!!

That Star is spot ON!

I've done eyestalks like that with my andalite custom. If you use sugru you can make them poseable. :D

I want to see a Rainbow Quartz made from a DC Superhero Girl doll. It would require a full body repaint though (unless there's a character in DC that has mauve skin?) and that might be a bit much.. right now. My finished projects to WIPs ratio is at least 10 to 1 D:

My wip list is so long...

I have a  bunch of mh characters I want to revamp (despite most of them not being vampires, teehee). Like, if I were given the concept, how would I design the character?

I'm also want to make some of the parents and teachers, plus some classic Universal monsters (Spectra's cheekbones inspired me to turn her into Countess Marya Zaleska and now I can't stop thinking of ideas). And I want to make a few Castlevania characters, and some ocs, and a Blade, and a fancy kiss repaint/diorama for Apple and Darling (because Mattel are cowards and won't release a cute picnic set), and a Kankuro from Naruto for my sister, and I still need to finish my super serious 1/6 T.E. Lawrence custom...

Long story short I need to spend less time thinking of ideas and more time making them.

I have a couple of old school strawberry shortcakes, I sooo wanna try that Star! (And maybe Marco)

Killer Frost has a veeeeery light blue skin, but I think it's close enough for a custom.
