Here's my new guy! He's a custom Novi Star/Bratz Kidz hybrid. His name is Elbee! Or L.B., which stands for Little Boy. hehe.



I need some help though... I've tried making him a wig out of monster fur (which is the blue fuzz you can see sticking to his scalp) - 3 attempts and none have fit him right.  The antennae do come out, they're not the problem. I just can't get the fit to look right! So I tried rooting little bits of the fur... but that ended up cracking his scalp along the hairline. I'm thinking about gluing the fur in small pieces next. But I'm open to suggestions, if anyone has any...?

Oh he is adorable!  He looks so great on the Bratz boy body.

Hmm.  I really don't know what to suggest as far as the wig is concerned.
How are you making the wig cap?  This is the method that I use: http://sols-crew.tumblr.com/post/43544419633/tutorial-making-a-brushed-yarn-wig
It creates a sturdy, very fitted wig.  I've been very happy with every wig cap that I've made this way.

OMG so super cute!! *WANT* hahah. I honestly thought that his hair was just flocking. Maybe try that?

I was *this close* to learning how to flock, to get his head done (or possibly commissioning someone who's awesome at it, like you, Sweetcakes!! lol!) - but I ended up going with just sticking little strips and pieces of fur right to his scalp. Well. I carefully rooted some fur along the hairline so that the edges of my fur fabric wouldn't show. It's imperfect but I love it, he looks adorable and its really fun to pet his fuzzy lil head, hehe. :) I'll be posting new pics soon! :D

Sweetcakes - that link shows a slightly more complicated version of how I was trying to make his wig cap. I'll have to keep that in mind for next time I need to wig someone. Thanks for the link. :D

Ta-daaaa! Elbee is complete!







And here he is with my other newest custom, little Callie! She's an OC that belongs to Robina here on the forum, and used to be a Kelly doll:




Robina gave Elbee his skateboard, too. :D

Elbee is cute! Novi Stars originally didn't have any boys, right? Great idea to make one!

Elbee is too cute! :love:
Did you root his hair, or were you able to get a wig to work?

Wheee thanks so much, super glad you guys like him! :D I'm pretty thrilled with him too. He's already decided that Ari Roma is his sister, and he looks so great beside her, aww. <3 I want to get all four of my Novis outside for pictures, some time soon. :D

neon_jellyfish - Nope, no canon Novi boys. I can't take credit for the idea of making one though, it's been done a few times. My main inspiration was (username) thatnanda over on tumblr, who's made at least 3 that I know of. :)

Sweetcakes - I rooted the front row of hair, but then did the method of sticking it on in little bits after that. It has a few bumps I couldn't get out, but overall feels nice and smooth and fuzzy. :D With the front row rooted, the threads from the fur fabric are all covered up and not visible at all. ^_^

Nice!  You can't tell that he's not completely rooted.  Wonderful effect!

This girl was a ton of work, but a ton of fun too!! Here she is, from Skull Shores Draculaura to little miss Sunday!:













Inspired by Japanese street fashion, namely fairy kei and decora styles. :) I'm sure you lovely folks will probably recognize some of the bits and bobs that were used to complete her outfit. Her stockings were made by TheDaughterWhoSews on Etsy. :D That big poofy head of hair of hers is sooooo soft. <3 It's made of Russian punch needlepoint thread that my sister's boyfriend's mom gave me, not expecting it would find a home in a doll's head, but she loved the result. ^_^

She's absolutely gorgeous! Fantastic job! On a side note I think you've just introduced me to my new favorite Japanese street style; I live for pastels!
