Commission for her mom in Italy, Little Lily Brown Middie in for some custom work. She will get a new carving, face-up and a custom mohair wig with custom handpainted chips.
This is Lilliette, My Macaron Q-Tea party Middie Blythe. I wanted to customize her so I researched around and found some tips from some great friends in the community. My most important tip was from GBaby who gave me the excellent advise to keep track with photos of each step and parts to make it easier to put her back together again. I also went ahead and labeled all the screws so I knew what part they came from.
If you have ever opened an RBL or FBL, you can open her head just the same by applying pressure over the ears and temple area until the sides release. Prior to that I lifted the scalp away from the face plate line.
She does look a bit intimidating inside. She is completely different from a RBL and FBl inside. I went in and inspected and started removing screws and labeling them and snapping a photo each step along the way.
I then sanded the faceplate, did my carvings and faceup.
I love her hair but I wanted Lilliette to have a more custom look and felt pink mohair would do the trick so I let her try on a few wigs.
These photos are her in a Blythe sized Sleeeping Elf wig she borrowed just to give me an idea if I would like her that way. I thought she looked precious so I was on a mission to find her a cotton candy pink re-root.
I found the perfect wig for her so I needed to remove her existing scalp. I simply ran a X-acto Knife arount the base of the scalp and the wig scalp came right off. She was left with a nice clean dome.
Lilliette is happy with her new look and loves her two toned pink mohair Sleeping Elf Wig. I am so happy that I was able to get a Middie and overjoyed that I successfully customized her. I wanted to share my steps and photos so no one else feels so inimitaed to give it a try. It is trial and error but not the end of the world. Give it a try!
I was recently Commissioned to Customize another Macaron Q Tea Party for Alanna in Australia.
