High Ponytail Wig for Sybarite Dolls

I played with the Sybarites today! Dolly days are fun days πŸ™‚

I finished a hardcap high ponytail wig today and tried it out on some of my girls. (It’s in my Etsy shop right now!) I even finally deboxed my Forest from last Christmas! Can you believe it took that long to even take her out of the box? Omgawd I’ve become one of those people. The ones who buy expensive limited run dolls and then leave them in the box! What on earth is my world coming to? Clearly, I need more dedicated display space and more time and probably more funds, but I digress. These girls need real display scenes, not just a stand….. One tiny step at a time, right?

Anyway, wig first πŸ™‚

Limo wears it so very well, but then she wears everything beautifully. She’s dreamy!

Rochas looks great in it too, I think. She a nearly finished repaint of mine. She needs catchlights and gloss to her eyes. I’ll post all about her transformation in an upcoming post, because believe you me, she was in seriously rough shape when she arrived here.

Khyrie is getting in on the wig fun! She another Sybarite rescue lady. She was Apple I think originally but I’m not 100% sure. She still need some eyelashes attached, but she rocks this wig even without them!

Lastly, one of my newer ladies, Forest, a vinyl Syb, wears the wig πŸ™‚ Isn’t she beautiful! What a pretty doll πŸ™‚

Thanks for looking at dolly pictures with me today πŸ™‚

This wig is available right now in my Etsy shop!

New Lux Art Doll ladies Are Taking Shape

and taking over the studio. Seriously, they are everywhere. And if not the dolls themselves, it’s their bits. Legs and hands everywhere you look. It’s ridiculous! I need to keep building the girls and finding some order in the studio.

I’ve just taken a break from that to show the new dolls. I’ve done a new face which is a dream to paint. (Lady Pompadour is finished, but for her shoes. Honestly I was a little distracted first by a commission that needed to be done quickly and then my new doll sculpt πŸ™‚ I still intend to give her shoes, I’m just being slow and neglectful. Hopefully she’ll forgive me! I have bought her an amazing new desk and chair, maybe that’ll make up for it! Pictures next time.)

And again, I’m off on a tangent!

Anyway, here is a pic of the new gaggle of ladies….

Here is a lady I’ve got big plans for. She’s the only one with any paint as yet, but I’ll get to everybody πŸ™‚

Gotta fly, so until next time, be good, have fun and thanks for reading!

A Lady at Court WIP5

A lot has changed since my last post!

Her underbodice/stomacher is all finished. Here’s a pic when it was still full o pins!

Pomadour1aWIP5w

Her skirt has had embellishment applied. It will get a second row of froufrou πŸ™‚

Pomadour2WIP5w

I’ve made her some pantaloons πŸ™‚

Pomadour1WIP5w

Of course they’re a bit lacy!

Pomadour3WIP5w

 

It looks more painful than it is, I assure you!

The overdress is what still needs attention. I’m having trouble deciding what to use to decorate the front verticals. I originally wanted lush and rich looking bows, which were popular at the time, but my attempts at silk ribbon bows are a disappointment, lol! Not to mention the fact that I’ll need to make rather a number of them and it would be best if they were as similar to each other as possible. I’m having a little trouble on that front as well! I’ll be looking in my reference books and such to find to best repeatable way to make a nice looking ribbon bow.

I also completed the work on the doll herself! I chose a girl who is a little pale, which is accurate to her I think. This picture makes her look quite a bit pinker and darker than she really is…

Pompadour5WIP5w

I referred to the paintings of the actual Marquise for guidance in my painting.

Pompadour6WIP5w

The book cover makes her eyes look brown, but on closer inspection I believe Β they’re blue-grey. Also, this is a terrific book if you’re interested in this amazing lady’s life!

Pompadour7WIP5w

Pompadour8WIP5w

I’ve painted her features and blushed and detailed her body too.

I then worked on her hair. She is pre Rococo craziness, so there’ll be no ships at sea on her head or anything, lol! That’ll be next time. Maybe I’ll do Marie Antoinette πŸ™‚

Pompadour4WIP5w

It’s a little hardcap wig. I did add a few beads. She is a Marquise after all and anyway I couldn’t help myself!

Pompadour9WIP5w

Ooh wait! I almost forgot! I’ve given her some jewelry. A pair of matching bracelets (common at the time) of silver rolo chain and a silver, double strand very fine double ring link chain choker with a larger central silver wire ball bead.

Pompadour10WIP5w

So, really all that’s left (apart from an appropriate diorama), is the overdress, and her shoes! And maybe a chatelaine like this one…

Chatelaine-281x300

So that all of her important bits are at hand whenever πŸ™‚

Until next time, thanks for reading and have a great day!
