Penny a ooak Draculaura is up in my Etsy shop :)

Good Sunday morning!

I have a new girl to see. SHe is a Monster High Draculaura that I have repainted and redressed. I’ve called her Penny. Penny is a girly girl. She has pretty grey eyes and light pink lips and she wears a crop top with magenta straps and a light, soft pink gathered knee length skirt aith self waistband and attached gold toned chain belt. I have given her tiny gold bead “stud” earrings and recoloured some Monster High shoes to better match her outfit.

Here are a couple of pics. If you’re interested, there’s a link at the bottom of this post to take you to her Etsy listing πŸ™‚

One more MH Skelita Halloween girl :) Esmeralda!

I’ve listed one more Skelita repaint and redress in honour of Halloween.

This ghoulish beauty is currently on offer in my Etsy shop. I don’t have in process pics of the painting progression, but you all have seen that a million times from me anyway, yes? Drop me a line if you would want more of that. This time though I took a few shots as I made her bow.

The violin itself is a cute wooden Christmas ornament that I tweaked the strings on, removed the hanger and added a chinrest. The bow I made from scratch.

First I carved and whittled down a piece of wood. The wood needed to be as wide as the width of the frog. Trying to attach tiny pieces of wood for the frog and the end of the bow would have been a waste of time. Nothing would have stayed and the moment you touched it, it would have fallen apart. So I started with a larger piece of wood (birch, I think, not balsa, too soft).

Here it is carved, but not sanded and of course not painted, and the violin, pre chinrest. I drilled holes for eventual stringing with the tiniest drill bit I could find.

Here it is with paint. I used a real bow for reference and tried to emulate what a real bow looks like.

And here it is “strung” I have glued the knots on both ends of by bow strings and when that’s dry I will trim the excess and varnish again. I will also add a little clear elastic loop to help Esmeralda hold her bow as she should.

She’s a virtuoso on the violin and has taken it with her into the afterlife. Here are some photos πŸ™‚ Her dress has a faux suede bodice and pink sparkly and black mesh full skirt. The gown is accented with pink Swarovski pearl beads and black seed beads on the pink floss tie shoulder straps and two more pink Swarovski pearls and hand knotted thread loops as fasteners at the back.

Back in the saddle with Chelsea a Cleo repaint and redress

Ho there peeps!

Couldn’t stay away! I’ve just finished a Monster High Cleo De Nile repaint and redress. I’ve called her Chelsea and she looks a little like she’s she both nervous and excited. About a first school dance possibly?

I took a couple of in process shots….

It’s funny, her eyes wound up much more brown with just hints of green in the end. I thought I wanted to give her green eyes but changed my mind somewhere along the way.chelseawip2

I had already made her dress when I chose to give her turquoise toe and fingernails.

Jebus, look at how messy my table is. Crikey in a hand cart, I’d better tidy that up!

Chelsea awaits you at your leisure in my Etsy shop.

Cheers! And have a great weekend.

Oh and Halloween’s coming, so a custom Skelita is coming up next!!

Marianez – a La Dee Da ooak Repaint

One of the last repaints in the pipeline was this little lady. This is a La Dee Da doll by Canadian company, Spinmaster Toys. I love their oversized heads and giant eyes, offset by a teeny tiny mouth.

Anyway I think they’re adorable! With such big eyes, there is a lot of space to work with as a repainter. So I couldn’t resist repainting one.

I’ve just listed her on etsy, and please go and have a look, but here are some before, during and after photos…

Here she is before I began…

I removed all of her paint and roughed in her basic eyes…..

Then some shaping and the beginnings of the colours I want to play with ….

Then lots more paint sessions, and viola! Here she is….

I know, its a big jump, but I didn’t shoot much through the middle of this paint πŸ™

Thanks for reading and have a wonderful day!
