Good Monday morning dolly people!
I finished a Draculaura repaint and started an auction on ebay for her and I wanted to share just a couple of pics of before and during, though in truth I didn’t take very many in the middle :o(
I chose a Draculaura Gloom Beach girl because I liked her hairstyle.
And then of course I took off all of her paint 🙂 Now she looks a little weird, lol!
I waffled back and forth on her colour palette because I didn’t want her eyes to be to contrasty in terms of hue. I really though I wanted her to have blue eyes… until I realized I really didn’t want that! It also occurred to me that the bright pink streaks were getting in the way of the look I was getting around to, lol! So, I took them out, carefully, slowly, one by one….
After that the paint palette came much more readily and looked right 🙂
In the end I chose mostly greys with some other hues mixed in. I wanted her to have a vulnerable look to her, maybe a little scared, but not too scared ’cause she has her little dolly to make her feel better 🙂
I apologize for not having pictures throughout the paint, but sometimes I forget to stop and photograph. Sometimes I just get in the groove and don’t stop!
Cori’s little dolly Sasha was fun to make. Of course her colours had to make sense with Cori’s colours. Originally I was going to give her dark brown hair like Cori but then decided that was too matchy matchy blech! So I chose the white Mohair for her.Â Her body and head are needle felted wool and the holes in my fingers are proof of that, lol! She has on a little pink and white lace skirt and a pink organza ribbon top. Her arms and legs are cord and her features are sewn on beads. I think she makes a nice huggable companion for Cori. I dressed Cori herself in a cotton eyelet nighty. I lined the bodice and edged the hem in delicate white lace. I styled Cori’s hair into two pigtails and tied them with white ribbon. Of course she got the full body blushing treatment as well and everything got sealed before she was dressed.
Of course Sasha’s hair is tied in pigtails too just like Cori’s 🙂
These two are up on eBay for a one week run…..
