New ooak art LuxDoll Shay-La is almost ready….

My newest little resin bjd is a light pink skintone girl. She is just about 6.5 inches tall. She is on my newest completely redesigned second generation body. Her knees and elbows have been improved and importantly, so has her neck allowing for greater and more natural looking head posing.I also sculpted more expressive hands and a flat foot. (Fashion feet and a separate set of hands are possible options.)

I had hoped to create a doll/pose-able sculpture that had a great range of movement despite her small size. I think I have achieved that with this girl.

Here are some body shots in various poses to showcase that pose-ability.

 

My resin dolls are all made from original sculpts made by hand by me. After making my own molds I then cast my dolls under pressure in resin that I custom tint. Then my girls are hand finished and seam sanded, hand strung, painted, blushed, dressed and wigged.

Shay-La is a part Pagan wisemaid, part Mystic Priestess and all fantasy. I gave her a large sterling silver wire and beaded headdress attached to her auburn mohair wig separated by a Katsilk Saran braid. This mohair is by far the nicest I have ever used and the colour is flat out incredible. This is all attached to a hard cap style wig, though it will be permanently affixed to her head cap. For other wigging options, a bald head cap is a possible option.

Shay-La is painted and blushed with artist quality paints, pigments and sealers. I have dressed this one of a kind pose-able sculpture in white raw silk. I have fashioned a wide sleeved long robe style garment with faux fur trim. The robe is fastened with a hand beaded back tie silk ribbon belt.

A little of her back story…..

Shay-La
Mystic Priestess

Well loved by her people, her honesty, fairness and generosity are legend. Many travel from far away lands to sit at her feet and hear counsel.
The natural world speaks to her, sometimes too often ;o) She converses with the wind, the waves and the souls of trees…. They seem to know everything and she is their messenger. Some believe she has powers, but Shay-La knows it is only a case of asking with respect and the world will move for her and help her find what knowledge she seeks. She treats the natural world as she does her closest friends, with reverence, dignity and love, and it responds in kind. In fact this is how she treats all she encounters.
Her most relished time is the quiet of the night, when other chatter is stilled, with her old friend the moon. This is her wisest counsellor and the most wry. All of her deepest understanding comes from these night visits with Moon, and joy too, the moon does have a sense of humor!

Shay-La is a one of a kind pose-able doll. She lies somewhere between sculpture and fashion doll. She stands 7.5 inches. She is an original sculpt made entirely by me. She is on my generation 2 Lux body. Each of her body parts was first carved of wax, painstakingly molded and finally pressure cast by me in custom tinted resin. Shay-La was then seam sanded and strung with elastic. Her hands and feet are wire hooked. Her legs are wired for greater stability.
Shay-La was then painted in artist quality paints and pigments and sealed with matte spray varnish, except her eyes and lips which are gloss sealed. I then dressed her in an outfit made just for her, a white raw silk robe. This long wide sleeved silk robe has faux fur edging. The back tie belt keeps it closed. This waist tie belt features a hand beaded square “medallion” of sterling silver, mauve Delica and other beads all sewn to silk and metallic ribbon that ties in the back. Shay-La’s hair is a custom made hard cap wig (permanently attached) made from the best quality hand dyed mohair, Katsilk hair, sterling silver wire and various beads.

 

This one of a kind creation will hit eBay on auction this Friday November 9th unless she sells privately first so do contact me if you’re interested in adding this girl to your artdoll or fashion doll collections!

Enjoy your day and thanks for reading 🙂

~Impact!~ New OOAK Outfit for Sybarite Ladies Finished!

Last time I posted, I was hoping to update the very next day. Unfortunately, I wasn’t able to do so :o( Other things kind of got in the way. It was a couple of days before I could get back into the studio, but when I did, I kind of got on a roll and finished the outfit! Yippee!

I decided to add another piece to this outfit. I wanted something more than just the bra on top, so I added a micro shrug in stretch silk to go underneath. I love how it looks! I finished her wig. It’s a slow process! I’m happy with how it turned out too. Lastly I made some kickin’ boots. These stretch fabric boots have concealed shoe bases with the heel exposed.

I put the outfit on Trapeze and I think she looks great :o) Here are some shots of the finished outfit: I have called it ~Impact!~

Venice Carnival Topper Dawn

awsumgal ooak Venice Carnial custom Topper Dawn Doll 1

This vintage doll has been given a new lease on life as a reveler at Venice Carnival!

Her costume is entirely custom designed and handmade. The beading has all been done by hand. The gown itself has been machine sewn and hand finished. The sumptuous peau de soie white silk skirt has been trimmed with vintage bronze trim and hand beaded and is the perfect basis for the lavishly printed and metallic accented quilting cottons of the pieced bodice and overskirt. The overskirt has been trimmed with metallic gold crochet loop trim and embellished with beads sewn on by hand. The bodice has been carefully fussy cut and has tiny beads sewn on. The back of the bodice fastens with four brass bead “buttons” and black handknotted thread loops. Her form fitting stretch sleeves are edged in an ecru looped trim adorned with tiny glass hand sewn on beads at the wrist. At the shoulder, the sleeves are edged in fine twisted drapery cord that has had metallic gold thread wound in. This costume is really not designed to be removed.

This Venetian lady has a traditional white permanently attached white mask. She has blue eyes, gold shadow and gold lips edged in black and decorative filigrees all painted by hand in artist quality acrylic paint. All has been UV sealed.

She wears a custom made headdress. It is made of more of the overskirt fabric, lined in bronzey gold lamé. It has long black mesh trails and black and big gold beads. The edges of her headdress have hand sewn tiny glass beads and tiny sequins. She has two bead embellished metal bronze toned fans sewn onto the headdress that serve as a decorative collar. This head dress is also not really designed to be removed.

This doll carries a gold sphere topped black staff. The sphere has been metal leafed and varnished for longevity. The staff has black mesh falls and a pretty rhinestone chain collar under the sphere. The shaft has been wrapped with gold toned wire.

Lastly, on her feet she wears a custom pair of golden pumps. They have holes for a Dawn type stand.

This doll is in good vintage condition. She is a vintage doll from 1971 however and is used. She has all of her fingers and toes. Her knees have minimal greening (as is common with vintage Dawns) but you can’t see her legs anyway. (You can’t see her shoes either but I still gave her some :o) She used to be a standard Glori (K11, I believe) on a standard Topper Hong Kong body. She will come with a signed certificate of authenticity.

Feel free to comment and ask any questions you may have!

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!
