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!
