Monster Discussion / Re: Purse Dolls and How to Keep them Safe
« on: August 13, 2017, 10:46:10 PM »
I would love to find a purse that could accommodate a doll or 2.  Back in the day, they had purses to hold Dawn (6.5 inch doll) dolls, I'm surprised there hasn't been a purse for little girls to carry their Barbies in!

Or has there?  Is there?

Customs / Re: Arm Articulation
« on: August 13, 2017, 04:45:10 PM »
These are just my thoughts, so take them for what they're worth....

I thnk you definitely have the right idea.  If you take a look at the way a MH or EAH arm joint is constructed, it's similar to this, except of course it's plastic.   A few years ago, metal was used to create the joints and in most (if not all?) cases the arms or hands couldn't be removed. 

You may want to take a look at this video on how someone articulated the arms and wrists of a Bratz doll.  My concern with their method is they're inserting metal or wire into vinyl, which is not a good idea since they react with the vinyl and will cause green spots.  If you could find a plastic alternative that would be better.

BTW if anyone knows how to articulate the *legs* of a doll let me know!

I purchased a "lot" of MH, EAH & Descendants dolls including a couple Abbeys, EAH Justine & Descendants Mal. One of the Abbeys (Dead Tired) is a duplicate so I will probably try to sell her or use as trade bait.

Just purchased a set of self-threading needles.  I find they are so much easier to thread than regular ones and they work well for hand sewing.

Oh heck yes, I get a lot of the comments that neon_jellyfish mentioned.  My brothers just don't get why I love dolls.  For years my coworkers didn't understand either, until we discussed her childhood doll collection (which she still owns) and she discovered how valuable hers were. 

My problem is I sometimes tend to sacrifice quality for wonkiness, especially if I'm in a store and there are ppl - especially teens - who wander into the aisle and make fun of the dolls.  When they're around I try not to do anything, for fear that they'll see me looking at the doll stuff and then poke fun at me next.

I have always been a doll collector.  Since I was 4 years old I've been hooked on Barbie and dolls like her.  (I'm 52 now.)

My babysitter's daughters could be what helped me discover fashion dolls, I remember they had real Barbies and they were so cool, and that may be why my parents got me a clone doll.  I got 2 Barbie clones when I was 4, that was 1969..."Dollikin"...they were strung together but fully articulated.  I think I liked the fact that they were small (I'd had baby dolls and they seemed big to me) and fun to dress.  I carried one or the other everywhere.   I finally got my first real Barbies for Christmas in 1970, that made me fall in looove with her.  Malibu Barbie, Ken and Francie, along with a Country Camper, homemade clothes by my (late) Grandma, and a carry case.  I also got some clone playsets, but I think that wasn't until a year or 2 later.

I still have all my childhood Barbies & everything that went with them.  The Dollikins fell apart but I still keep them in their own case.

I was finally able to afford one of the Fashionistas, so I got Fab Fringe for only $4 at Wal-Mart.  I have since darkened her face and put her & her outfit on a curvy body.  I also picked up 4 of the new dresses for $2.44 each. :)

Customs / Re: Customs I want to make/see made
« on: July 28, 2017, 10:36:28 AM »
Most of the customs I want to see made are EAH and MH characters or backgrounders:  Johnny Spirit, Eyera, Jacko Lantern, maybe a slight variation on Zori Weatherbolt, Hopper Croakington, Sparrow Hood, and a few others whose names escape me.

Since I'm on vacation next week, I'm hoping to start work on Hopper, Johnny Spirit, and maybe some others.

I would definitely complete my vintage & MOD Barbie collection by getting some of the dolls and playsets I've really wanted, like Barbie Goes To College, and also some of the Color Magic dolls...like this one:


I'd also like to get a few more Momokos:

I have one and she was one of the first fully articulated fashion dolls I bought.

Draculaura's Darkroom / Re: MH Rebodies

Finally was able to take a decent pic of my rebodied Emoji Cleo.
Reboot Cleo hybrid by Lynda V.E., on Flickr

I added a gold bracelet, because after all, Cleo is royalty. ;)
I enhanced her eyebrows and eyes too, to give her a more haughty look.
I want to add wrappings in the form of either a scarf, belt, or something similar since she has to wear some.  The idea of her having a large portion of her body in wrappings on her reboot look just doesn't work for me.

An obvious knockoff of Lala.  Not sure if she's a ghost who likes to dress goth, or what. LOL

Finally got a chance to take a pic of my 2nd pair of sandals!
Holt's sandals by Lynda V.E., on Flickr

I basically did the same things as before, just used orange glue sticks. 
I managed to find a glue gun that takes the larger glue sticks on clearance, so I can also try making my own colors. 

If you want me to take upclose pics let me know.

Since I'm on vacation this week, I may try making a variation on the sandals, ex. not as "thick" as previous pairs.  I'll have to see.

I can't tell if her hair is violet or blue....but it looks like she has bangs.  Wouldn't it be cool if it was Spectra, or Ghoulia?

Here's a couple fakies I forgot to take a pic of.  I don't know why they gave Frankie curly blue hair, but now that she's got a little sister, I imagine that she's Alivia in her teens.  Alivia got jealous of Frankie getting all the love and attention, and struck out on her own.  She changed her makeup so her stitches are on the same side as Frankie's, and made sure she has two blue eyes (Alivia hated the idea that her eyes didn't match).  Kinda like Toralei, but not as mean...just misunderstood...
