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!

Penelope – ooak Monster High Skelita Repaint and Redress

Good morning doll lovers,

I’ve just finished, in honour of the changing seasons around here, a repainted and redressed, fully body blushed Monster High Skelita doll that I have named Penelope.

She’s not unhappy about her current bodily situation, but it does get a little lonely especially when her friends are not about. So, she wanders the cemetery at night with her lantern, looking for lost friends….

In process…

So, sometimes I take copious quantities of photos as I work, and sometimes, well I just forget. If I’m working and I don’t have a lot of time and I’m on a roll, I just keep going and then lament the fact that I didn’t pause and take some shots. But, well, it happens….

I did take some shots as I made the lantern though πŸ™‚ And I have some NWS (if you can call a skeletal nude not work safe?!) shots of her full blushing/paint job sans vetements.

The Lantern:

It is made of water colour paper that has been cut and painted and varnished. Inside is a little candle with a long wick of black,blue, yellow and orange made of stiffened cotton, painted and varnished, acetate that has been painted with the yellow glow of the candle forms the “glass” and a decorative ring handle on the top so Penelope can carry her lantern with her wherever she goes.

First I decided on a design. I wanted something mildly medieval and a little goth. It couldn’t be too very intricate cutting wise due to the scale, but I wanted some visual interest of course..

After all the cutting came the test fold to make sure it would go together well… I’ve left tabs on here and there for gluing πŸ™‚

Before putting it together permanently, I wanted to get the painting done. Apart from being easier overall, it made painting the inside feasible (I mean what old lantern is white inside?) Also, glue doesn’t take water based paints so well, and I didn’t want random white bits on my old medieval type lantern, so paint first and then glue!

I’ve painted the candle to look as though the light from the flame decreases towards the bottom of the candle pillar.Β I’ve added the cotton which will be stiffened and then painted in what I hope will be realistic flame colours πŸ™‚ I’ve added a piece of wire to my chosen pretty ring carry handle which will keep the handle securely attached to the lantern.

Here are those NWS body shots. πŸ˜‰

You can see that I have painted some mossy bits on her here and there. She’s been wandering the cemetery for a Long time! She also has a few well placed tiny bug friends on her, which she doesn’t mind at all. They give her someone to talk to while waiting for her other ghostly friends to come out.

Penelope’s hair has been modified as well. The random orange and blue locks original to her were carefully removed along her front hairline, and this has been rerooted, lock loop sew in method, with the same hair fiber in the same colour with the exception of course of her white streak which is mohair. The flower is a permanent addition.

The dress I’ve made for her is a lovely medium ecru fabric with lots of petal texture. It has factory applied petals and blooms all over. I have strategically added a few here and there for more balanced look. The attached bodice is a simple chiffon crossover with a sewn on flower decorating the waist. The same kind of flower that adorns Penelope’s hair. There is an attached petaled fabric fall that affords lots of posing options.Β The dress is easily removable and fastens with two snap closures. One at the waist and one at the back neck.

Penelope does not have painted catchlight in her eyes. Her eyes have been finished in a 3D gloss to catch the light naturally wherever she is displayed. (There is someone out there claiming to have devised this type of eye finishing and claiming it as his own. Well maybe he made it up on his own and maybe her didn’t. I don’t know, but I do know that I do it and have done it for years and lots of other great customizers do it too! So there’s that!)

Currently this lady is available on my Facebook page, but I’ll be moving her to ebay probably later today and will update the blog with the listing info when I have it.

Thanks for dropping in πŸ™‚

~Angel!~ OoAK Monster High Lagoona Doll

I’ve been prolific over the last few weeks. Sometimes I seem to just get the engine fired right up and off I go, lol!

I have finished customizing this Lagoona Monster High doll, she has become ~Angel!~ an altered doll for the Holidays. This Lagoona has had some modifications done to her. Her arm fins are no longer, and her leg fin ports have been filled. She has been airbrushed and hand painted in glorious metallic gold about her fingers and toes and forearms and lower legs, in keeping with her celestial status. She has also been fitted with a pair of of completely hand crafted needle felted and beaded wings. These wings have been needle felted out of the softest premium kid mohair in natural and pale gold. They have clear stretchy shoulder straps and can be removed when Angel is feeling naughty um, tired…..

AngelLagoona1w

She wears a two peice gown made just for her. It is white lightweight silk with a gold glitter embossed mesh overlay. The bodice is lined, has ribbon straps and fastens in back with metallic gold teardrop beads and hand knotted thread loops. The skirt has a shaped hemline that has been edged in metallic gold thread. Under this Angel is wearing a white mesh sequined gathered skirt.

AngelLagoona5w

She has been completely repainted with pale blue eyes, painted lashes, a hint of shadow shaping, a blush of pink on her lips and touches of gold around her hairline.

~Angel!~ is currently listed in my Etsy shop. Here’s a link….
