A Little Fashion Help From My Friends

There is a blog I follow called Desperately Seeking Dolls. The dolls in her collection is fabulous! She also shares the dolls on her wish list. So often I wish 1:12 dolls were so glamorous. I knew I was going to if not complete a repaint at least change a few things on one of my dolls at some point.

One day, while enjoying the posts I follow, I saw an action packet from the dollar store on a blog called Hey it's muff. I had the feeling the little boots (actually a cast!) would fit someone in my mini town. I looked in two stores before I found three packs at a dollar each. Since each pack only had one boot that meant I would have one and a half pairs of boots. lol

My intention was to mock them up by painting or adding other things. I did a fitting on one doll and fell in love with the way they fit. This particular doll has on permanent pumps which makes it very difficult to give her a change of shoes. You may remember her as Niecy the boutique owner from my doll stories. By the way, I am still getting scenes together to start them up again. The opening in the back will be closed with silver duct tape.

 Her dress is a Monster High skirt. This outfit gave me the courage to glam up her make-up.I gave her some new eyebrows (modeled after Desperatly Seeking Dolls' friends), refreshed her lipstick and blush. Her hair is a mohair  wig I ordered a couple of years ago. I wish I could remember who I ordered it from. It looked better when I first got it. I will have to either tame it, have her get a reroot or just make another wig.

Just trying on for size. I would like to add a little cuteness to the next pair

They are just on the border of looking weird or like casts (which they are supposed to be :-)

The split makes them fit well but a little silver tape couldn't hurt!

How about a glamour shot. lol
 P.S. Hey Muff your name will be mentioned in the next post too!

  5. Hello grandmommy! I like the way you have cheated us, hahahaha, but these boots are great! Your doll is glamorous that's for sure. By the way: I love her hairdo, it suits to her wonderful dress and the new's a bit wild, but it has a natural look ;)!
    I wish you a nice weekend!
    Hugs, Ilona

    1. Hi Ilona,
      She says thanks for the compliment. lol Yes, who would have guessed these were not really boots! I kind of agree with you about her hair.
      I hope you have a fun mini filled weekend!

  6. Great idea! I might try that in RL!!

  7. She looks so glam in her cast boots with matching silver dress! I like that wild hair. She like, "You can dress me up, but you cant tame me!"

      She says she is flattered. LOL She is definitely her own person. :-)

  8. Hi The grandmommy!

    I have winter snow boots shaped like those ;-)

    I think of them as my "space boots."

    Your young lady looks pleased and proud to have turned out as she has. Well done ;-D

  9. Hiya D7ana!
    So you must be a great dresser also! I take it they were not former casts. LOL
    She told me she feels like a new wom-uh dol-uh person? LOL
