New Desperately Seeking Susan Skull Case listing on Esty

Good day dolly fans!

I have finished a mini replica dancing skeleton and skull head drum case for 16 dolls. This is a miniature of the drum case carried by Madonna in the film Desperately Seeking Susan. I have made this before (twice  in the last 10 years!) but each is slightly different due to the hand painting and finishing that goes into it after airbrushing with my custom stencils.

This has been made by the same method I used before, which I lay out in some detail in a previous post. Here’s a link if you’d like to check that out.

Skull Case Blog post the first one anyway, there are several!

It has a pink 100% silk interior, both top and bottom and the top has a useable elastic edged pocket. Top and bottom are padded.For added fun, a few paper accessories (just like in the film) are included, just to get you started! 🙂

Here is a link to the Etsy listing

Here are a few shots of the just finished case…

OOAK Tonner Tyler Rescue Repaint and Redress

Good evening doll lovers!

I want to share a Tyler rescue that I have recently completed. I purchased a number of Tonner heads some in original state and some in various stages of customization. This gal needed some attention, well quite a bit actually….. So I started with her. I knew I couldn’t make her look any worse! No really! Here’s what she looked like before…

See what I mean? This gal needs some tlc to make her pretty again!

I cleaned her up and removed as much of the paint and whatever else as I could and started painting.

These girls paint wonderfully. They almost paint themselves, lol! OK not quite, but easy and fun to work with :o)

So here she is with her paint (most of it anyway) but before the taming of her long blonde hair…..

She has a nice tan bodytone and she’s blonde so I gave her a healthy California look. Blue and mauve eyes, neutral realistic lips. The colour  is a little toned down in real life.

Her hair needed attention as well. It was a bit unruly, needed taming and styling. I gently detangled it using a steel wide tooth comb. You don’t want to pull to hard on a dolls’ hair or you’ll pull it right out of her head! You also want to use combs that are only for dolls. Keep your people combs and your doll combs separate. The oils from human hair coat dolls hair and attract dust and dirt, so doll combs should be just for dolls!

I wanted her to look put together and groomed with a little of the romantic as well, so this is what I cahose to do with her hair….

I gave her a pretty beaded braid. I think it makes her look sleek and sophisticated but a little innocent too.

I made her a new dress. She wanted to wear yellow, so, of course I obliged :o)

I may still add more to this gal. Earrings, beading on her dress, maybe a waist scarf with a brooch? I can’t decide…. I’ll go and muse about what else she may or may not need while you (hopefully) enjoy these pics of her :o)

I’m really very happy with her look, and I’m really very pleased with the fit of the dress. It hugs in all the right places! I may have to make this in other colours :o)

Well I hope you have enjoyed her transformation.

Thanks as always, for reading!

Tonner Tyler Friend Charlotte OOAK Repaint Before and After

Happy Black Friday!

I wanted to share some before, during and after pics of my first Tonner Tyler repaint. I have repainted many different types of dolls in the past, but this is the first Tyler type gal!

This lovely lass was originally a 16 inch Charlotte and she has gorgeous platinum blonde hair. Here is what she looked like when I received her….

First I carefully removed all of her factory paint so that I would have a  nice clean ‘canvas’ to work on.

Then I began her eyes….. I have roughed in what I think I would like her brows and lips to do…

More layers, more colours, pupils, some liner. She begins to take shape….

So, again after much more paint, eyeshadow, lips and brows It’s funny, but the doll looked quite a bit different in my studio. Her eyeshadow was more subtle and the magenta lip looked like a good colour. When I saw the pic, I knew I had to go back and change some things.

While I thought about that, I styled her hair :o)

After a further repaint, her eyes are more vibrant now and her shadow is less aggressive. Her lip colour even though much bolder, suits her better. I have to say that I sure wish I had her hair too, lol!
