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™‚

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 πŸ™‚

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!

A Doll for a Doll ~ooak sculpted tiny~ by awsumgal

I’ve been indulging in the quite small recently. I don’t know why I am so drawn to the very small, but I confess, I am.

I have long wanted to try out some of the clays I see other doll makers use and so I finally overcame inertia and began sculpting a small doll. The idea was to make a fashion doll for my fashion dolls. I liked the thought of my high fashion girls having a high fashion doll of their own.

I was pleasantly surprised at the result πŸ™‚

She is a strung doll with 10 points of articulation and with a little fiddling, can stand on her own. I have painted on her lingerie and stockings but her double skirt, one layer pink fur, the other layer pale pink tulle, are removeable. She has delicately painted features and a tiny hardcap mohair brunette wig. She is completely sculpted by hand using no molds and so is truly one of a kind. Made entirely of clay, she has been fully body blushed and all of her paint and blushwork is sealed with multiple coats of varnish.

Here she is prepaint. She’s sculpted and strung, but that it. She’s next to a vintage 6 inch Topper Dawn doll.

What are you in for?

The wig was difficult on this small a scale. I may take a different approach next time πŸ™‚ I think she looks cute bald too, but I can always make her another wig!

Tiny doll, big style πŸ™‚

Just about four inches tall πŸ™‚

My lovely basic Devon is enjoying having her around, I think, lol….

Having a little chat πŸ™‚

I have named this little one Bisou!

I think she’s pretty even without hair!


I think I shall make another as this was so enjoyable! Wish me luck πŸ™‚

Thanks for reading and HAPPY CANADA DAY!!!!!!
