Customs / Takō's Room || (BFC Ink old body tutorial -add arms-)
« on: June 29, 2017, 09:32:43 AM »
Hey! :)

So, I customize since some years now and I'm exploring a good variety of doll's size. I was gifted a Little Princess Belle from Zapf Creation but I disliked the head and didn't know what to do with the body... Until recently. Cause Shibajuku Doll, guys!

So I had this shibajuku, whom I liked the head but found the body too small (I'm quite a Blythe fangirl but, surprisingly, I have some problems with the shibajuku proportions...)

Obviously, this leads to my hybrid, Annabelle x)

Since the head of the shibajuku pop off easily, that wasn't a matter at all. But the little princess head was more difficult... Level of difficulty: Monster High; the neck peg is a hook.
The neckpeg of the little princess isn't the size as the shibajuku at all. I had to do some cutting of the neck all with an X-acto knife. Nothing very troublesome.

This is what I ended up with. The neck isn't perfect still and I'm afraid I'll have to do more carving in the future. Sadly, she can't move her head neither up nor down for now or even tilt it but she can turn it right to left and left to right !
The wig was in progress. It was quite easy to take away the rooted hair.


Wig in progress :3
Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Wig finished :3

Wig's made from maybe seven different colors of yarn. I alternated when I glued them up. After this, I unbraided all of this.

Then working with the outfit

This one's made from old tights of mine. I just sewn a little. I also got rid of her make-up.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Then she got her trousers. Let me know if you want the pattern for the trousers. .-.;
Here she's next to (my kind of) WIP BFC Ink doll custom, Camille.


She's not finished yet; I still had to paint her body a little. The matching isn't right since the head is so pale and I want her a little darker. I want to change the eyes and eyelashes and I know I'll have to do her a whole make-up.

Hi !
Name's Takō and I'm 23years old. I'm from France so please pardon me if I make some mistakes with the language. I'm really doing my best but sometimes I can forget how to speak right!
I recently ended my years at the university and I'm actually looking for a job. So to speak, I got plenty of time working with dolls.

I'm into dolls since I was a child. My mom's a Barbie's collector and she has a lot of them. It helped me on this path. Since I started customizing mines, she started customizing hers. That's kind of funny and I'm still silently waiting for her to buy some resins and mold stuffs so I can borrow those to her.

I'm mostly into Monster High and porcelain dolls because they're the most entertaining to custom. But I really do love the huge BFC Ink and I'm just waiting for two canadian ones I bought online to come home. Can't wait!

Back to MH, I only have more or less twenty of them and I'm working on ten, but I have a lot of spare corpses and heads xD Since that's heavy modifications (cutting, sculpting, entirely painting...) I don't have even finished one MH yet. Also, I do have five MH/Bratz hybrids and I'm willing to do a MH/Obitsu hybrid. I like hybridizing so much. x3

Pen name's ChambredeTakō for the dolls. I got a facebook page, but I'm not famous yet lol My customs often have the purpose to get me a better view of the characters of the book me and some friends are writing, Berceuse Cauchemardesque, so, hell yeah, my dollwork may be a little frightening at first but I promise none bite!

Thanks for reading and have a nice evening!
