Why hello there!
« on: November 26, 2017, 05:41:32 AM »
Hi everyone! My name is Rosanne and I'm from Canada.  I've loved MH dolls since they came out, but because I'm...ahem...a grown ass woman, I never felt it was appropriate for me to buy any. :blush: How silly! Anyway, life always happens and you move on.

It's only recently that I became interested in these dolls again...I'm an artist actually (tattoo, drawing, portraiture, sculpting, costuming etc), so my interest was peaked when I saw what people were doing with them. Repaint a doll? What a concept!! :P I love seeing what others are doing, and I'm anxious to try my own repaint (in the middle of a kitchen reno, so that's gonna have to wait).

I have sewn a few new outfits, which was super fun and very relaxing.  I forgot how much I love sewing doll clothes - I used to make all my doll clothes as a child.  My favorite doll is Clawdeen, because I love werewolves and I just think she has such a pretty face!  I'm really excited to see what everyone is up to, and to maybe share my own creations at some point!

Welcome Rosanne!

I'd love to see your handmade clothes.  I'm so glad that there are now lots of patterns for them, although I've made some freehand too (not very good though). 

No shame in being a grown-up doll collector! :)
love & prayers, Lynda :)

At this point, I do not use patterns...I freehand and go by eye...but that's sort of always how I have done it.  I'll try to get some pics up soon.

I am looking forward to sharing some of my creations soon.  It's been hectic with the kitchen reno.  Can't wait to be able to just organize my stuff and start really creating!
