Thanks dfotw!

Are Bratz/Bratzillaz clothing swaps OK to post here?

I see no reason why not! I see a Pullip on the last page - and I think I posted a mini Blythe wearing a Novi Star dress around here somewhere. XD So go for it! :)

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

dfotw, is your Catrine head on a Spectra body perchance?

Indeed! :biggrin: It was my first 'serious' mod, giving a Spectra body a tail so I could have my Catrine Cheshire. Good eye! ;)

I was SO excited to see her, what with all the Skelekitties I'd been pondering a Ghostikitty! If you don't mind, which Spectra & Catrine did you use?

She's SPOOKtacular! And I LOVE that she's a Cheshire kitty!!!

Thank you! And yes, moar Ghostkitties! :biggrin: I used Ghouls Getaway Spectra and Gloom and Bloom Catrine, but I think those two are generally a good match in all incarnations. Good luck with yours!

Any tips for adding her tail? I have a Spectra who is also becoming a ghost kitty (just waiting on the head to arrive...) and I was trying to figure out the best method for doing it. So far, I'd considered adding a belt like the one on Freaky Fusion inspired Scarah, and hiding it under a poofy dress.

I drilled a hole in the back of the Spectra body, about the same height as the hole is in the Catrine body. I don't have power tools, so I used pointy screws and a bit of elbow grease until I got the width necessary to hold the Catrine tail in place. I was nervous about screwing it up, but it was pretty easy! Let me know if you need pics.

And to keep the thread on topic, here's a redress that made me fall in love with the doll all over again. FdC Toralei honouring her Indian roots (in a Bratz outfit from a 'genie' collection and Djinni shoes):

Noooo to the power tools on my part. I'd be too worried about drilling a hole straight through by mistake. I have a hand-powered craft drill I might give a go, or else just follow your example and gently dig in with a screw. ;)

Cheers!

Lhia, in googling about the sanding needles I came across something called a 'pin vice' - used for drilling into small scale stuff like miniatures. Might be what's needed for drilling tail holes?

dfotw, I ADORE that pic of Toralei...and those gold boots in the Djinni fashion set were a big reason I got her. Also the gold lamé pants. lol

Any details beyond that? Pin vices are what those super basic reroot tools are. A "pin vice drill" has a little flat bit on back that you set against your hand, which spins without unthreading. The craft drill I have uses one attached to a handle for grip. :)

(Technically, Xacto knives/scalpels and many screwdrivers with detachable parts are also based on pin vices...)

Lhia, I created a new thread about pin vices and tail holes: http://mharena.com/index.php?topic=14201.new#new

Aaaaaand, we're back to doll clothing swaps! Here are two I really like - Bratzillaz Switch-a-Witches, wearing Bratz clothes but mostly boyz ones! I think the jeans, 'leather' pants, and the orangey shirt are Bratz boyz. Pink/blue wig is Switch-a-Witch. Green flower some random flower barrette I found. Red crop top, I think Bratz, from some ebay lot. The black wig is a faux fur handmade one.

'Scuse the flash, I know some don't like it, but these were taken last year before I joined MHArena. I kinda like the blown out effect myself, in moderation.   :biggrin:

And with the standing doll, I purposely positioned the flash halo around her hand.

I don't have any pics, but I do have a request. Does anyone have River Styxx & Ari Hauntington Dessert Ghouls doll? I'd like to see Ari's dress & headpiece on River, seeing as she's a candy-loving party ghoul.
Cheers! :biggrin:

Apple White by Raye Del Sol, on Flickr

Put the dress from my Party Ghouls Abbey doll. I think it's an adorable look for her. What do you think?

Wow! Apple looks stunning in that dress! I've never wanted her, but now I'm considering grabbing the next I find to redress her in blue...

Uber-cuteness! That's a great outfit anyway, and the darker outfit really lets Apple's hair shine!
