Customs / dxgirly's Pullip faceup thread
« on: February 09, 2017, 12:29:09 AM »
So, I figured that since I've done 2 custom Pullip faceups now, I should start a thread so I can chronicle any sort of progression or improvement I may make. I currently have 6 MIO kits waiting be worked on, but I have to wait for the weather to warm up a bit.

Anyways, here the two that I've already done:

First up is Camilla. I worked on her in October 2016. She was the very first faceup I did on any doll EVER. So yeah, it's very newbish.  ^^; It's done entirely in watercolor pencils, as I didn't have the supplies to use anything else at the time that I made her.

My second faceup was Savannah, and I did hers in January 2017. I think I made slight improvements over my first attempt, with this one. She was also done entirely in watercolor pencils, because even though I have the supplies now, I wasn't brave enough to try using them yet. Here's how she came out:

So yeah, any feedback, encouragement, or support you guys could give me in this new endeavour would be greatly appreciated. <3 This is my first getting back into something creative in years and years, so I'm very rusty and not at all confident in my skills, at the moment.  ^^;

Off Topic / What are you currently lusting after?
« on: January 28, 2017, 04:57:40 PM »
We the what did you most recently buy thread, so I thought this would be fun too! I know I'm always pining away for something or other that I can't currently buy myself. lol. I can't be the only one!

Right now I *really* want an outfit from an etsy seller based in Italy that randomly followed my toy account on Instagram awhile back. She makes AMAZING outfits for Pullip, that always make me go  :faint: Her stuff is just out of my budget right now, though.  :(  One day, though!!  :woot:

Brags / Best Christmas Present EVER!!
« on: December 22, 2016, 02:01:57 PM »
So, just putting it out there, Jason (galaxy here on the Arena), is one of the most amazing and generous friends ever. We decided to exchange Christmas presents this year, and he went ALL OUT and spoiled me rotten. Like for real, I feel badly I wasn't able to do more for him this year. He sent me a tin full of homemade Christmas cookies, CE Skelita, Project Mc2 Devon, Disney Descendants Signature Freddie, Hasbro Tiana, Hasbro Elsa, Hasbro Belle, and two of the curvy Barbie Fashionistas.

BUT, that's not even the best part! In the package was a doll carefully wrapped in tissue paper, and when I unwrapped her, I was confused for a minute, not because she wasn't well-done, but because I'm dense, and was totally not expecting a custom doll!

Jason made me a customized Barbie mini-me, and oh my gosh, she is amazing!! She has my hair colors (brown, pink, purple, blue, and green), my septum ring, my plugs in her ears, my nerdy glasses, AND almost all of my tattoos. And she's wearing an outfit that I would totally wear. She also comes with a pink bag in the shape of a cat face, and a pink phone with a teddy-bear case. That is SO me. hahaha

He seriously did SUCH an absolutely amazing job, and a day later, I am still completely floored and just blown away!! Thank you so, so much Jason. This is seriously one of the best gifts I have ever received in my life, and your hard work really, really shows. This was just so thoughtful, and I am so grateful and blessed to have you as such a good friend. I love you so much. <3 <3 :hug:

So here she is, in all her glory. Excuse my no-makeup face at the end, but I just had to include a photo of me and my mini-me together! ^.^

























Thanks for looking!! <3 <3

Clawdeen's Closet / Sewing machine recommendations?
« on: October 14, 2016, 09:59:56 PM »
Hey everyone. I've kind of been bitten by the creative bug, and have started customizing some dolls. I've quickly discovered, however, how expensive custom Pullip clothing can be on etsy, so I would like to *attempt* to start making some dolly clothes myself. I want to get a sewing machine, because, to be honest, my hand stitching is completely atrocious... so here I am making this thread. Does anyone else use a machine for doll clothes? Can you recommend a specific one to me that would good for this purpose? I want to put one on my Christmas wishlist. I'll have to learn how to use it, of course, but that's what youtube videos are for, right? ;)

Draculaura's Darkroom / dxgirly's (mostly Pullip) photos
« on: July 19, 2016, 07:38:53 AM »
My old thread seems to have gotten locked, so I decided to make a new one.

Today I'm sharing some pictures of my newly-opened Pullip, Wilhelmina. She is so very pretty, and my pics don't really do her justice, but I thought I'd show them to you guys anyways...

Ever After High Discussion / Store Exclusive EAH Dolls
« on: June 04, 2016, 12:16:07 PM »
So I've wondering and waiting for a leak of anything, because they're often kept more under wraps than the regular wide-release dolls.... Do you think we will get store exclusives again this season at Target, Walmart, or TRU? What do think/want them to be?

I just thought this would be a fun thread to speculate in until we see legitimate leaks or reveals of new dolls. :)

So, please, share your thoughts with me!

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I want to start selling off my MIB MLP G4 collection. They're just not doing anything for me, anymore, and are just taking up a lot of space. I will be listing more things as things sell. There's just too much of it right now to even think about putting it all up at once. However I collected every release from 2011-2013, so if you're looking for something from that period MIB, let me know, and I'll to see if I can find it.

For now I'll just be listing these. Shipping is a flat $7 for one item, $9 for two items, $11 for three items, etc. Let me know you want to buy and I'll give you a quote. My shipping costs are NOT done by weight/zip code, because I don't own a scale. Factoring in the cost for boxes/tape/packing peanuts/bubble wrap and rough guess at what it will cost to ship, I always come at a loss. If you don't like how I calculate things, please don't buy from me.

I'm in a non-smoking home, but I do frequently light candles, and have cats.

Prices are semi-negotiable, since I really not 100% certain what any of these are worth.

ALL boxes have shelf-wear. If you're looking for SUPER minty boxes, please look elsewhere.

These are all cross-posted on MLP Arena.

Onto the ponies!

Customs / Help with rebody-ing Courtly
« on: February 21, 2016, 02:42:34 PM »
Hey guys! I plan on buying a Courtly to have nude and then redress, but I really don't want her to have the painted on leggings or gloves with the outfit I'm planning. Lizzie is a match for her skintone, right? (I could answer that myself, but I'm not home at the moment.)

What I really need help with is the actual process of rebody-ing her. I have never done any sort of customization. I usually don't even mess their hair much, if that helps you understand my level of skill with this. lmao. How do I go about doing this? Are there any tutorials you can show me? I am worried I will break her neck, and have to buy a whole new doll again. Help me?

Thanks!

Off Topic / What do you have for Thanksgiving?
« on: November 24, 2015, 08:38:48 PM »
So excuse this being geared towards mainly Americans, but I was talking about this on my personal facebook, and I thought I'd bring a discussion about here... because why not?

So what does your family usually have on Thanksgiving? What's your favorite, and what do you hate?

And for people not in the US- tell me about any traditional holiday food you have in your country!

So, I made a thread just like this last year and I loved it! And since I'm a Christmas-freako and already have my tree and decorations up, I figured I would start one again this year! I have my doubts anyone else has theirs up yet, but please post pics once you do! I love looking at other people's holiday decorations!  :biggrin:

Site Support / RAOK??
« on: June 30, 2015, 04:02:46 AM »
Last time I was over on MLP Arena (granted that was a quite a while ago), I noticed they had a RAOK system in place over there. Has there been any thought of bringing one here??

There are quite a few members here I'd like to send a small surprise to try and brighten their day.

I wasn't sure where to ask for this. I think this is the right spot. Is anyone open for a commission of a rehair? I'm looking to get a sig Cupid done with long pink hair. Examples of your previous work and a general price range you can offer is definitely welcome. Let me know!

On hold for now.

Mod note: Separating the topics. When they released it kind of made sense for them to go together but now that they've continued on it makes more sense for them to have their own topics. -Melissa
