I’m doing fairly well with the “finish it” goal of February and so-so on the frugal one.
Diana Prince, the groovy boutique owning super spy WW with no powers, is almost finished. Removed the Barbie lining of her jacket and I relined with leftover kimono silk from my own jacket re-lining project last year.
She still needs jewelry and boots, because this Diana Prince understands the essential nature of good accessories.
Alas it seems to be hard to get a good even white on her existing boots.
I may need to make her a pair. Making shoes/boots is probably in my future. The “Bratzilla” doll I remade has irregular sized feet (for a doll). Unlike the snap-off shoe-feet of Bratz, Brazilla have feet-feet…but larger than your average fashion doll.
Same for the DC Superhero girls dolls. I love the fact they have more realistically proportioned feet but am sad that this means a dearth of ready-to-wear shoes. These dolls can wear other doll’s clothing but it’s mighty hard for Wonder Woman to find civilian clothes that work with her red boots with WW gold accents. How’s she supposed to have a secret identity once she gets her super powers back?
Bruce Wayne doesn’t have to wear Batboots in the boardroom. It’d make things obvious.
Bruce Wayne, I imagine, has to be mighty good with makeup/concealer. That cowl doesn’t protect his whole face from bruises. Does he send Alfred to buy it? “It’s for Master Bruce’s….mistress”
That’s a montage I want. Superhero dudes learning bruise concealing makeup techniques.
And I want more doll shoes.
And if I want either of those things, I’ll need to pay someone or make them myself.
