For Spectra it's only her arms hands and legs.

You might have some luck with aliexpress if you're looking for a girl doll body. They have all sorts of clone bodies.

Or if you wanted to take a whack at casting yourself, maybe try something like this

Novi Stars also has Cici Thru

They're smaller but Gail Lexi and Cici are the more mature bodies I think?

Had to check with mine heh.

I'll link if I find any transparent bodies on aliexpress/similar sites. I know I've seen some translucent clones but not sure if I've ever seen completely clear...

Customs / Liquid Casting besides Resin?
« on: September 06, 2018, 11:31:13 AM »
I've been looking into doll molding, but if I wanted to cast something into a doll head/face mold... and preferred it be hollow for weight purposes... what am I able to cast it in?

I know resin is the first thing that comes to mind for liquid casting, but I don't know if there's anything else that exists?
The only reason I'm apprehensive about resin is because I really don't get the process, plus expense, or maybe this is more plausible than I think.

Polymer clay is too heavy, and I worry it would collapse if I hollowed it. And I can't think of anything to use as a filler to hollow it that wouldn't like explode or melt too bad in the oven.

Is there anything else liquid based I can try? I don't know that much about the different things you can cast in.

And I don't think you can do classic toy vinyl at home I think you need a factory setting for that... 🤔

It might be easier to try to dye a plain body. If you don't make a hole it'll probably come off rough and take awhile, not to mention wind up a lighter color just from sanding it down.

I would try a Catrine body and look into what can dye MH plastic

Sorsa Curses, daughter of the evil sorceress.

She's not from a particular fairy tale per say, atleast not an actual one. She's more in line to be an element of a story.
Ie off page prince who's cursed before the story officially started, or maybe someone needed a generic witch.

But she's actually "adopted" under the impression she's a stolen "first born".

And not to go mary sue, but in a school full of princesses and witches stealing royals, turns out she is a princess. And this is basically just an rp I have with my EAH friend Trista. But she winds up stealing her story from her brother. Which is just one a made up that has various fairy tale elements, but isn't anything known in particular.

She remains pretty evil the whole time. She only goes back to her birth family because she wants to claim their royal power.

But that's where her BESTIE Pearson comes in.

He isn't MY oc, he's my rp partner's. Son of the princess and the Pea.

It's funny Ameyal, that you mention Penelope, because that's what we ended up naming HIS daughter. Penelopea.

Anyway, he's a boy very obsessed with being a perfect princess. He spawned from the question, 'are there gay arranged marriages in eah'
They seem to hold the destiny idea above everything else. But if you're destined children are both boys, then it's destiny that they wind up together right?

Their unlikely friendship spawned from Sorsa trying to trick Pearson into making a deal with her(she does this to all royals she can take advantage of). But his special talent of being incredibly detail oriented made him see the obvious ploys she had in her contract and dismiss her.
She wound up getting mad at him, and basically bullied him until they wound up having so much banter that it turned out they were eachothers only company.

tl;dr Pearson's a loser with no friends because he's so finicky and critiques everyone, no one likes him.
Sorsa is evil and also has no friends. So they wind up being all they've got. While Sorsa denies they're actually friends for quite some time.

You should probably include examples of your work for us :0

Honestly I'm getting pretty bored. The old webs used to pack so much in a couple of minutes, these just feel like it's nothing spread out over 10. Yawn

Monster Discussion / Re: What's made you go "wow, that's so clever"?
« on: July 23, 2017, 02:17:25 PM »
Ok clever wise.
Frankie's hand pops off being a gimmick with dolls that have removable arms and hands, which was still fairly new in the doll industry apon release.

Clawdeen being a black werewolf and helping get past the racist barrier white parents have about buying their children black dolls.

Packaging dolls with stands. I'm not sure what this impact had but it makes them so much more display worthy. Less toss into the toy box, more put up on a shelf when you aren't playing maybe?
Outside of collectors I'm not sure what the idea was here.

Doll brushes that are seriously the best dang doll brushes I've ever had packaged with a doll.
My old barbie brushes, and current pony brushes have nothing on them.

Currently unlisted, I'm the tumblr OP but Arielle Quentz from the Catacombs on facebook found it first while browsing

Curiously the listing doesn't mention Frankie

"The cafeteria table has a bench attached where Toralei doll can sit to have a feast - there are so many lunchtime accessories, like two lunch bags, two lunch trays with food slots, food in bowls and on plates, a sandwich (with two halves to share), drinks and desserts. Toralei doll looks purr-fect in a print sweater dress with boots and a hairpiece, and a pink purse completes the lunchtime look."

She looks perfect!  Great job on your first custom!

Do you think that body is the right size to upgrade kelpie or Pawla?

I don't know if this helps

Is that pic of Caprice with blue head but white body the Before the nail polish went on? Can you post a similar After pic with the nail polish on?

I'm kinda intrigued by the nail polish idea….did you use a couple of thin coats? Any base coat or top coat or sealant?

Who or what is the tiny Wolf Cub? I wonder if it's like with dogs, they have oversized paws when they're little that they 'grow into' as adults?  lol

Might have to hit a Five Below soon….Frightmares have been there recently….

This is the main one I have on hand.
She's a few layers of thin light blue acrylic(that wound up being too dark overall) topped with one layer of nail polish. No sealant. Nail polish is pretty self sealing.

Wolf cub is Pawla from the Monster Family line.

I don't know I don't have either.

What I do know is this picture of reference from my friend TristaStrange vs my picture of Luna and Caprice

Picco Neemos are also quite skinny and not toddler/child body. More like older kid with clothes on, or preteen.

So up to you.

I may ask my friend if she has any Frightmare size comparisons vs Pawla.

Sorry but you are not allowed to view spoiler contents.

Super cute!! Now what will you do with Caprice's horsey body? Will that be your second custom?  lol

Ah she's in the spare parts pile?

I was surprised at what articulation Frightmares did have, but I guess a random centaur form isn't the worst thing to have lying around.

Very creative and cool! How did you feel about the nail polish going on? Does it seem relatively permanent? I'm investigating some for a custom that involves nail polish, but I haven't seen much on how it applies and how well it lasts!

Feels that way to me, makes for a good self finishing paint imo.

There wasn't much info on painting dolls with nail polish I've found.

The only thing is that if it's too thick around joints it's a little on the gummy side and I had to take a break from fumes while painting.

But overall seems good. The knee joints actually slide over it without damage so I'm good.

Body: azone picco neemo

Paint: light blue acrylic with top coat of nail polish in “moonstone”

Head: Frightmare: Caprice Whimcanter

Clothes: SweetieBelle Eq Girl dress

My first custom I'm so proud!! :blush:

I ordered a picco neemo body awhile ago for a hybrid that didn't work out. I've had the body flopping around ever since.
Until I thought, wait what if the Frightmares would work?

A trip to Five Below later, also where I got the nail polish.

Here's my blog where I'm posting about her too.

Trader Support / Re: Should I just remove them all from box?
« on: May 30, 2017, 08:17:42 AM »
Though they take up more space, consider you can store them a bit more easily in box.

If you don't want them all out for display consider tucking them under your bed or closet(provided you know you don't have any vermin problems(my house has a rampant silverfish issue so not a great idea here but))

But the way I think about it, especially for dolls that haven't been unboxed in my house. They're all together in there.
If I unboxed something I was planning on selling complete anyway, I'd be scared of losing their pieces while they were loose. Atleast in box you know everything is set.

Which is the reason why I haven't unboxed my glam band three pack. I'm scared of losing the instruments until I can clean better.

Only when I can get away with it. With family, no.
With my girlfriend on a private trip to the beach when no one was watching.

I couldn't pass up the chance for beach photos.


I don't really like the purse shapes, but I got the lunch box to keep doll things in.

Found at Tuesday Morning in South Padre Tx(while on vacation so can't go back)
