She is so Zazzy!!

Ayan is quite the sassy girl. If you agree please do check out her listing this Friday

Wake up Izzy!

Here is Izalia, my latest custom.  She is a Heather Sky with a Miss Sally Rice Scalp. She is a hybrid of my 2 favorite Blythe girls and I think the combination is just absolutely yummy.  I did a fabric decoupage treatment on her lids with the perfect shade of minty green flecks that compliments her hair.  I carved her with a slight pout and gave her a natural gloss with a hint of pink shimmer.  I really like her cute little button nose and the kiss of sun across her nose and cheeks.  I wanted her lashes to be a bit flirty with the wispy winged out curve.  I have not decided if I want to add colored shadow as of yet. She has a few sets of handpainted chips.   I might just decide to keep her for myself, m y daughter wants her too, she just might be a keeper.  Izzy is wearing a sweater by Lunita and her head bow is by Rob & Sioux.

Warm Heart Icy Girl

Ayan is a warm, kind little one with a love for Scrabble, Adventure Time and Big Bang Theory. She loves to Cosplay but has not gotten up the nerve to do it in public.  Obviously Halloween is her favorite time of the year.  If you share any common interests with Ayan, she will be available for Adoption this Friday, September 13th.

Crowded in the Studio

I have been busy this week in the studio. Between working on a Cottage Dollhouse, a Custom Pullip , a Custom Icy and now this Custom Heather Sky, it is getting a bit crowded. I even have a Wendy Weekender Blythe and a Middie lined up as well.  My hope was to be able to offer a variety of customs for the shop this week. It seems I might fall short and only be able to list the Icy Custom this week.  I have not gotten in some of the supplies I needed to finish the Pullip and I fear I might have fallen for this Heather Sky. We will see, we will see.

Amelia is off to China

Icy Custom

I have been wanting to expand my range of dolls this year. I am working on a Pullip and I have started on my 1st ethnic custom this Icy Doll. I am pleased with the way she is turning out. They are so similar to Blythe dolls in their mechanics and size.  I was pleasantly surprised that she was very easy to open and carve.  Her chips were the only difficulty because the chips I had would not fit so I had to file them down.  She should be ready to go in the shop for adoption by the end of this week.

A Little Bit of Sunshine

Little Custom Middie Blythe Melomelomew is keeping the sun shining in her little home today.

In Studio this past weekend

Work in progress on this little darling. She is a Jun Planning Pullip Nahh-ato with gorgeous olive skin. She has been neglected in a box for a few years in pieces. I dug her up and she is now ready to put her best face forward. This is my first time customizing a Pullip. She is also the first of other type of dolls I am venturing into customizing this year. She now needs some new hand painted eye chips and more work on her mouth and then figure out what type of hair she will keep.
