♥ Sweet McKenzie ♥

I'm just lovin this sweet little girl. I was afraid she wouldn't have anything to wear but I was WRONG. McKenzie is wearing a dress I made for my BJD girls and some Kelly doll boots. n.n

It looks like my daughters will be inheriting some new Kelly dolls sans their shoes. LOL

I already want another one to customize her. I actually want ALL the Middies now. LOL

Welcome McKenzie

Ready to Make My Next Custom!!

After creating Malia, I'm ready to create my next custom cocoa cutie... a.k.a. custom brown Blythe or Basaak. I already have the idea for at least 3 or 4 girls that I would love to make. I think I'll get a couple of Basaaks (Blythe clones like my Malia) and a couple of regular Blythe to make more custom brown Blythes. I do have a Neo Blythe Friendly Freckles that could use some love and attention. Only problem is I will need to purchase a new eye mech or figure out how to get the current eye chips out because they are hideous PLUS Malia currently has hers. n.n

I also want to attempt my first re-root but I'll start on a smaller head though so I can get the hang of it. I have 17... No 18 LPS Blythe that I could practice re-rooting. I've already dyed a couple of my LPS Blythe hairs but I'd really like to try re-rooting. I've heard it's tedious but it may be a stress reliever of sorts from my 5 children. LOL Speaking of LPS Blythe, since I want to re-root one I might as well give her tan too. n.n

I also have a Monster High Draculaura that I plan to customize as well. I'm not exactly sure what I want to do just yet BUT I think instead of doing a re-root, I may do wig or flock. Still trying to decide on that.

Just some food for thought.

I think I'm obsessed with taking photos of Malia. Isn't she soo photogenic? I ♥ photographing her. :-) I'm seriously ready to make her sister.

Malia - Custom Brown Cutie #1

So excited how this girl turned out. Now I'm ready to tackle my second but using a real Blythe instead of a Blythe clone.

WIP - Malia's face plate & body

Ii'm so excited that her legs are nice and smooth... not sticky as that was my fear.

Can't wait to get started on her make-up but it'll have to wait until after my son's doctor appointment.

Next Dolly Project

Malia (before customization)

Thanks to gaining courage from doing my face up on Autumn (LTF Ante). I've decided to try my hand at customizing my first Blythe... Well not my first Blythe that I've owned or even a real Blythe but a Basaak (Blythe clone) that I got off a doll forum for a whooping $30! I purchased her with the intent of learning how to customize Blythe dolls sometime ago but was too afraid to mess things up. Well that fear is now gone and I'm ready to go. n.n

My plan is not just to re-do her makeup but attempt to make myself a cocoa cutie... Yes, I'm going to try to make my very own custom black Blythe! I'm waiting for the spray as I type. Hopefully it'll be here by the end of this week so I can get started.

Can't wait... So excited!!

So I decided tgis morning to try my first BJD faceup.

What I learned?
1) Eyebrows are a beast.
2) Erasers are your friend.
3) Build pastels SLOWLY.
4) Can't wait to try it again. :-D
