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!

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 🙁

Bella – HTT Topper Dawn ooak Repaint up on Etsy!

Bella is a vintage Topper Head to Toe doll that has been repainted. She has new lashes but retains her amazing bubblecut hair.

Her custom gown is hand dyed blue silk that matches her eyes 🙂 The waistline of the gown and the matching silk wrap both have hand beaded details.

Vintage Batgirl for Dawn – Finished :)

That’s it she’s finished and off to her new home. When I last posted, I was in the near stages of completion with just a lot of little details to complete. I had to finish off the belt and then attach it to her, finish off the gloves, add varnish to her heels and belt buckle, perfect her hair and add her hood, and of course add the bat logo to her her costume!

Here’s a little bit of the gloves. Firstly, because I’m using a silk that likes to fray and dissipate to nothing with just the slightest hint of a breeze, (but it’s the perfect colour!) it needs to be handled carefully. The gloves are miniscule! I’m using a fusible interfacing to stabilize the silk. I’ve pressed it to the silk before cutting.

I’d just like to make a side note about the fabric colours throughout the blog posts for this project. The fabrics I’m using have optical dyes in them. The colour of both the silk and the sparkly unitard fabric are both a lovely grape-y purple. When photographed with flash these both appear navy blue. I’ve tried to colour correct throughout, but some shots are better than others….

I did as much as possible with machine, but the rest will need to done on doll 🙂

You can see even with careful and minimal handling, this silk still wants to fly apart! Now that the gloves are completely hand sewn onto the the forearms, the fabric is never coming apart!

After all that, it was time for a final photo shoot. I give you Batgirl!

Looks like Batgirl is striding off to keep Batman out of trouble, or more likely, require saving 😉

Hope you enjoyed coming along with me while I whipped up this girl! Thanks so much for reading 🙂
