Happy Monday morning! I know a bit of a contradiction in terms for many, lol!
I deboxed a Frankie B+W edition Monster High (finally! I’ve been admiring her in her box for some time now) and set to changing her look. I love her stock outfit! I’m a big fan of silver 🙂
Anyway here’s the girl before anything happened…
I was surprised to find how stiff her hair was when I deboxed her! A simple but thorough water rinse takes it out though.
Here’s the wee pretty just before I washed her hair….
Then as always I took off her paint. I also removed all of her “stitches”. Last time I left them because it worked. but this time I wanted to take them off. She looks quite different with no features!
And so we begin…. Here I’m just mapping out some placments and trying some colours to see what I like with Frankie’s grey skintone. I actually painted and wiped a couple of times because I thought the colour was wrong and didn’t suit her. She was vocal about that (in a plastic inanimate kind of way, lol!)
The warm tone I quite like and it will be the basis of the body blushing tone.
I decided to add some magenta and some interference red to her blue grey eyes. I don’t use Interference Red very often although I love it! I found that my tube had up and dried out on me, but there was a little tiny pool in the bottom that I could get to by poking the bottom of the tube. When I had added it to Frankie I gave the tube an honourable burial (ok I tossed it, but with a heavy heart) I’ll have to go and ferret out some more at my fave art store Curry’s. One of the most yummy places on earth 🙂
When it came to dressing Mia I was overly picky about what to put her in. (That’s not unusual, ha ha!) I wanted the outfit to compliment her, but not overpower her. The hues in her eyes were a little unusual so it was a challenge to find something that brought out her eyes and helped them pop.
I found a gorgeous purpley mauve raw silk. The colour was terrific but too much of it completely took over. So instead of doing a purple dress, I did a fresh young white very thin tissue silk (which I just LOVE working with!) short dress. I added some beads of exactly the right colour (love it when that happens) and some silver straps. The purpley mauve silk is a wide waistband. Just enough to compliment her eyes. Then I brought the hemline a little by adding a couple of pink ribbon bows. Just to add a little more colour and a bit of whimsy too.
I know, I know clam up and show me the DOLL!!!
She was up on eBay, but not for long. She hit the spot for a lovely lady and she’ll be off to a new home as soon as I pack her up. I hope you like her as much as I enjoyed painting her 🙂
Off to find another victim, lol!
Thanks for reading and have a great week everybody…
