The Master is currently not smiling. I’d really like him to smile. Rather than print an entirely new head for him, I have decided to modify the existing head. Continue reading Resculpting the Master
These two are adorable together! I added stylized reflections to their eyes. Frankly they probably should have been heart-shaped. 😀 Continue reading Little Alison + Little Bill = WUVS junior
Carol is another character in my loosely related universe of Doctor Who dolls. In canon, she’s the Brig’s assistant during the Third Doctor’s tenure. In my mind, she’s Jo’s partner, and I took her appearance in a different direction from the person who played her. Body mods below. Continue reading Making Carol
Lakis Atlantean, latest addition to my universe of reinterpreted Doctor Who characters, is done. She’s a Mattel Hawaiian Fun Kira head on a Mattel Curvy Made to Move Fashionista [Dancer] body. I customized her by stitching her bangs against her scalp, giving her the headband from a Mattel/Hello Kitty Chococat outfit and bootz from an MGA Bratz, hand-sewing her outfit [!!], and of course repainting her. It’s a very simple faceup, but I didn’t want to give her too much detail, as she’s supposed to be just 17 years old and very cute.
Credits: Inspiration for this body/head combo comes from @dollsahoy’s recent custom. Dress made by modifying a T-shirt pattern by @cosmomoore. TARDIS from @natalunasans.
I finished repainting Lakis Atlantean tonight. Since she’s a relatively young character, about 17, I did a simple faceup, with no characteristic eye bags. She just needs her bangs subdued and some footwear to make her feet look more proportional, and she’s done! Continue reading Lakis repainted, waiting for hair and shoe improvements
Time to get rid of more shit. PM me if interested.
Here’s Lakis, a Mattel Hawaiian Fun Kira head on a Curvy dancer body, before repaint. I made the T-shirt dress from a pattern by @cosmomoore, but I added sleeve and hem extensions. Lakis’ leggings are from my own reverse-engineered pattern. Continue reading Handmade shirt dress and leggings for Lakis
Here’s Ten in what, for them, is the epitome of fashion: one of my standard sock sweaters [albeit with sleeves and cuffs from jersey knit] and some sock leggings, based on a pattern that I reverse-engineered. Swapping out 4 of 9 sweater pieces for jersey makes it easier and more visually interesting to make, since I can have contrasting sleeves or something. Continue reading Ten rocks their socks [sock sweater + sock leggings]!
The inhabitants of House Rainbow Barf [Jujube, Dorothy, Jeff, and Honorine] went to VTDL last Saturday. Pics and video on official blargh.
@dollsahoy sent me a 13″ Mego Cher and a 13″ Bionic Woman recently. Here they are with a standard fashion doll for comparison. Next to your average 11.5″ Barbie or equivalent, the Megos are Amazonian! I seriously contemplated hacking the Bionic Woman down to standard size, but I couldn’t bear to mangle her unusual and fully articulated cyborg body. But it’s okay. She can be like a 7-foot robot. As for Cher, I think I’ll keep the head, torso, and hands, but replace arms and legs to get her down to an acceptable 1:6 scale height.
Here they are as they came: Continue reading Mego 13-inchers from @dollsahoy!
Jill and I nearly pissed ourselves with laughter over the hash that the speech-to-text made of Poe’s Raven.
Jill and I were reading poems into the default speech-to-text converter in my computer. It made the following hash of Robert Service’s Cremation of Sam McGee:
Starring Princess Leia x2. The one on the left is mine. The one on the right is Jill’s.
