It was on Bubbles that my series languished. I'd chosen one of the two Auroa dolls I have. It's not a face sculpt I much like. The eyes feel too large and wide apart but I thought it might work for Bubbles. Alas, her hair parted on the side and I found no way that … Continue reading Unsticking Bubbles.
When Powerpuff Girls hit big time in 1998 it made and impact on me and my female friends. We were recently out of college or finishing up. You can't tell me that we WEREN'T the key demographic...I know that we were in my heart and because by the time it was on video I worked … Continue reading Build me up, Buttercup
More than a year ago, my friend Ebony sent me a LINE message from a Hobby-Off. It included a picture of a baggie doll. It was a "Alfred" TaeYang. TaeYang is Pullip's boyfriend...her second boyfriend actually because Namu was her first and wasn't popular. Namu is no more. Goodnight Namu. Of course, the TaeYang Ebony … Continue reading This doll will have everything
In late 2018 I picked up a damaged Pullip ...as I do. Her eye-mech was destroyed, she had no wink bars, and she had half of her original face paint. I detailed the damage and fixing up here. Then she sat in a box until last December. Inspired by Instagram makeup, I decided to go … Continue reading Flower Girl.
I wasn't a pony girl. My childhood room was not edged with realistic horse replicas nor did My Little Pony (the first 80's round which was square aimed at girls my age) ping my interest. Nor did the new wave of My Little Pony Friendship is Magic capture my attention. I've seen an episode, while … Continue reading Bi-Little Pony, for Caty.
Today is one of those days where I realize how much I haven't posted. I sat down to type up a post about a finished project I named Bi-Little Pony. The project involves a person serving as an inspiration who I have Dolled before so I went back to find those posts and found...only one … Continue reading Caty is a doll.
It was about a year ago I brought home a Living Dead Doll, Hush, from my local Hobby Off and opened her baggie to be assaulted with the stench of nicotine. I wrote about scrubbing and scrubbing to remove the nicotine stains. Eventually I got her down to an ivory white. She'd never be the … Continue reading Here I am. Little Me.
I've written before about how handy-work can be quite an effective form of meditation for those of us with minds that sometimes fight meditation. The repetition of movement, the precision needed, and the concentration used helps clear my head. It’s not that I don’t think while doing this, I do, but it’s a quieter thinking. … Continue reading Acrylic Yarn: Squeeky self-care.
Where have I been? I've been doing my summer thing. I've made a lot of stuff, done some social things, and visited America for 12 WHOLE DAYS. And now, with my day job lurking beyond this weekend it's time to start catching all of you up on my projects. First up we have a work … Continue reading Power Puffing
I HAVE FINISHED IT! Last I updated about Melody, as far as my searches show me, I'd given up on dying her synthetic hair. I'd pried her head off and started rooting. MY GOD, that was arduous. The heads of Disney Animators are about the size of softballs. Towards the end I realized that the … Continue reading Melody, complete!
