I'm working on getting my pics switched over from Photobucket to Imgur, but then I'll upload some more of my non-MH custom work!  And I'll for sure update as I work on my Taeyang custom...I'm sure I'll need advice from the experienced Pullip customizers on the board.

Since Mattel isn't going to give them to us, I also plan on making my own take on Pharoah and Raythe too.  I just need to settle on what the best base elements for each will be as I want them to be able to fit into their respective lines like they wer factory dolls, just like Johnny Spirit and the Haunted line.

I love Raythe! I can't wait to see what you'll do with him, because he's going to be spectacular. Also super looking forward to your Taeyang. You customs always look like factory originals, just better, and Groove face-ups are great, so I'm really curious how he'll turn up!

Hey Kara, my July has been crazy-busy, and SOMEHOW I have overlooked the BOO-LICIOUSNESS that is your recent custom work you've been posting. Can I just say....shreiktacular! Clawsome!

I'll go drool, I mean look, some more later. I REALLY enjoy and appreciate your posts/pics and that you help others with tips, tricks, ideas, inspiration. Sorry you've felt under-appreciated. I appreciate you!

And a lovely idea on the custom-swap, with great results. Those two deserve their own thread with pics and info!

Wow, thank you so much for the kind words!  My thread is a mess right now as I go back and edit all the Photobucket pictures to a new host, but I greatly appreciate you looking! 

I can put up a progress picture of my Taeyang...probably won't surprise anyone that I'm working on making Supergirls boyfriend from the Legion of Superheroes, Brainiac 5!



  I haven't done much besides paint the parts that won't be covered by his outfit, and I haven't dont any detail work yet.  The wig isn't attached, it's going to be trimmed and modified a bit.

This is the outfit I'm working on:

Currently, I'm working on a commission of Silvi Timberwolf and Seth Ptolemy for my personal collection.  In the meantime, though, I've finished my first Pullip/Taeyang custom!

It's Brainiac 5, Supergirl's alien boyfriend from 1000 years in the future!



I don't have many images yet, but I hope to get some pics of him with the Supergirl Pullip this weekend!

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

I really hate pullip heads but I love how his head is more human and not a blimp! Love the hair and clothes  :)

Thanks for the kind words!  I haven't had a chance to take many better pics yet, but here's a quickie of my OTP hanging out  :biggrin:



Also, I'm working on fixing Dracula.  There's a LOT of work to do to make him screen accurate and not awful, but at least he has a Gen 2 articulated body.



Dracs hairpiece comes off super easily, and I plan on rooting him.

I'm also working on Raythe's gen 2 body, but no progress to show there yet.

Really quickly, here's an in-progress picture of another custom I'm about halfway there on...

Can't wait to see your reroot!  I gave Seth a hair trim after that picture to the final length.  It looks pretty good.  I'm currently working on printing his mummy wraps; I don't like the look some people have gone for on Seth of wrapping ribbon or linen strips and gluing them to his body.  My Seth will have printed mummy wraps similar to Cleo and Nefera's signature looks.

In the meantime, here's a picture of the Gen 2 body for Raythe.  It's funny how much bulkier G2 boys are!
