Let’s try this again – Cascade now available in my Etsy shop

Well that’s interesting. The post I wrote about this wig two days ago has just disappeared. And magically my user name changed to something I didn’t choose and magically today it’s back to what it should be. Way to go Stormweb you never cease to underwhelm me. 🙁

On to prettier things now, like this headpiece I just finished for the uber stylish Sybarite ladies that share your world. I’ve called it Cascade (said with a French accent, – bien sur) because of it’s asymmetrical descending length. Here’s a photo for you 🙂

~Illuminati!~ bling wig for Sybarites

I’ve just finished and listed a new glitzy ~Illuminati!~ hardcap jeweled wig for Sybarite dolls. It is now available in my Esty shop.

~Illuminati!~ on Esty

Dressed up…..

Or a little more casual….

Davincia is most lovely! (She’s the guitar player.) This fantastic Who guitar is something I picked up in Indonesia. Funny place to buy a miniature guitar, but I wasn’t complaining!

Here’s another shot of Davincia in a wig I have just sold. The colour is so very good on her, I might have to make another!

I mean damn! Isn’t she a beauty?

Happy Saturday folks, hope your green beer hangover doesn’t get the better of you!

~thanks for reading, now go back to bed, lol!

High Ponytail Wig for Sybarite Dolls

I played with the Sybarites today! Dolly days are fun days 🙂

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 🙂

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 🙂 Isn’t she beautiful! What a pretty doll 🙂

Thanks for looking at dolly pictures with me today 🙂

This wig is available right now in my Etsy shop!

Sadie – ooak Pippa doll reroot repaint make over

Happy Saturday doll fans! Today I have for you a repainted, rerooted and redressed vintage Palitoy Pippa doll. Same scale as her American counterpart, Topper Dawn. I don’t do very many Pippa makeovers, not because I don’t like Pippa, but because they are very hard to come by on this side of the Atlantic, especially in Canada. No finding them in boot sales around here!

I have a small collection that I have curated over the years and there have always been a couple of girls who were waiting patiently for new hair and faces. This is one of them 🙂

I gave this girl a platinum blonde reroot because I just love that super pale blonde hair! I use a sew in method that is a variation of the lock loop, so I don’t fill their heads with glue. I don’t use any glue. I also don’t poke the hair into the scalp from the outside as that method tends to tear the vinyl of the head.

After her reroot she was parted and styled and given a trim. (Side note: I was sure I had taken some in process pictures but now they’ve disappeared! If I locate them I’ll update the post.)

Then on to her new features. I gave her warm brown eyes with a little black subtle liner and deep red lips. I use artist quality paints pigments and sealers on my repaints. I want them to stay looking fresh and just painted for years to come. I rerooted her lashes as well.

She needed something fitting to wear and I chose deep red silk to match her lips. Her raw silk outfit is a two piece dress. The strapless bustier top is fully lined and fastens with two brass beads ands hand knotted red thread loops and the matching gathered skirt has a silk waistband and also fastens with a brass bead and hand knotted thread loop. It has metal chain and red glass seed bead hem embellishment all the way around the hem.

I’ve made accessories to finish her look. She carries a hard sided red silk purse. This tiny purse has metal wire handles, is lined inside, opens for Pip’s important bits, and fastens with, you guessed it, a brass bead and hand knotted thread loop. She’s also got a chain necklace sporting a small red Swarovski crystal in the center and she wears a custom pair of shoes. The little gold shoes have chain uppers and stacked bead heels.

This little lady is on Ebay right now but only for another day and a half!
