This morning my friend Emily and I were talking about the traumas of the past year and Teen Titans Go, as 40something young women are wont to do. It's our habit to try and schedule a good face-time session each week. She's now watching Teen Titans Go, which excites me more than it probably should. … Continue reading Chibi and M size Raven
My spring break is here. This means things are getting done! This is in part because I work for a teaching dispatch company and when I'm not dispatched I don't get paid. So in this month of freedom I will get paid for the dance work but not the English teaching. Thus it's time for … Continue reading Jinx! She’s ready.
I just can't stop making Teen Titans Go dolls. This should be no surprise to anyone who knew me shortly after college when I started to amass a collection of female action figures. It seemed like a hobby that had limits because action figures were even worse back then about not producing or short packing … Continue reading JINX!
Craftsmas is coming! Craftsmas is coming! Let’s be honest, every week is crafty up in here. The dark months are craftholes. I’m on medication for my anxiety and depression but when you add the darkness into that it becomes very easy to hyperfocus on a single task to release all the thoughts and energy...and one … Continue reading Beastie Boy
Because I had left over air-dry polymer resin clay I decided to make Starfire her own Silky. To color the clear/white clay I had I added a little acrylic to a blob of clay and rolled/kneaded it until the pigment was evenly distributed. And I set to work rolling, pinching, and sculpting. The Silkie I’m … Continue reading Starfire 1.0 Finished
Last we saw Starfire had her face painted, her body sanded, and her hair done. Onward to clothing. There's not much to be said about the clothing itself. Its a miniskirt and a crop top that closes in the back. It's shown here with the basting stitches still in. The difficult part was dealing with … Continue reading Starfire: Part 4
I'm still here! I'm just preparing to make a tutorial and some free patterns for Teen Titans Go eyemasks.
Because the base doll I'm using, Clawdeen from Monster High, is a werewolf character she has fur accents above her wrists and ankles. I told myself that Starfire shoots fire so I'd just try and make those ridges look like fire. Nope. I started but it didn't look right. I then used a new x-acto … Continue reading When your legs have hair ridges: Starfire part 3
Last we saw Clawdeen ->Starfire her hair was overly fluffy. Each bundle of strands sticking straight out of her hair plugs. So, it was time for a boil perm. Of course, before a boil perm make SURE all the craft glue you've squirted into her neck-hole to the inside of her skull (to secure the … Continue reading When your hair is fluffy and your face undone: Starfire part 3
Part two of Clawdeen Wolf to Starfire When my “Liquid Fusion” clear non-toxic urethane glue arrived it was time to remove ears and patch holes on my Clawdeen doll. I regret that I didn’t take photos of these steps but here’s someone who did and whose internet guidance helped me. When I transform a larger … Continue reading When your head is full of holes.
