Bella's First Tattoo! [06 Jan 2010|05:57pm]

bella_bach
Hi cuties, how are you doing? I know this community's dead, BUT I've got some news for you! I've got my first tattoo last nigh! Just was bored, and decided to do it!

Photobucket

It's a bluebell on my right hip. It has no specific meaning, I've choosen the bluebell flower just cos my name is Bella, so it's kind of connected. The tattoo is still drying, that's why it looks kind of rough, but... I already love it! ;-)

Hi, my name is Ellinor and this is my first post here.

5 years ago (or something like that) I made some REALLY bad make-overs on a few of my dolls. After finding this group I realized that I could save at least one or two of those dolls.






This once was a bad attempt to make a goth-barbie. When I started cleaning it (using soap) I realized that I had been smart (or dumb) enough to use something very easy to clean (I haven't figured out what yet..).






You can't really see it in the pictures but the hair has been cleaned to, revealing a really nice brown colour. I like her face but I'm not all that happy with her eyes. One of the eyes (the left one) has a brown line drawn over its original brown line (sorry for the crappy explanation) and I would like to get rid of that somehow. I think it's pen so I may have to repaint that part. What kind of colours do you use?

Does anyone know how to fix her hair? It's very frissy and tousled and I don't know if it's possible to save it or if I have to buy her a wig or somehow replace it. She has already got some bold spots so maybe a total make-over would be the best.

I appreciate all replies. Thanks in advance.

Finally finished a doll I've been customising since...well, it's been a good 8-9 months ^^;

It is modelled on Juka, (now-ex) vocalist of Moi Dix Mois:

Thanks to a couple of car boot fairs in the summer, I've managed to come into posession of a large number of Barbies to customise...now it's just a case of deciding what to do with them ^^;

Barbie's American Party [05 Jul 2005|10:58pm]

I thought you folks might enjoy my 4th of July Barbie entry. I had the damndest time getting my doll's hair red, as plastic does not take dye like real hair. I finally just whipped out a red sharpie and that worked great!
Here's a snippet:

two new dolls [25 Apr 2005|08:38pm]

[ mood | accomplished ]

finally got some OOAKing done today. painted two dollies, both barbies. both had half-paints (where i painted one eye and left the original paint on the other), but i just redid them completely. they look very amazing to me. the second is only a partial repaint; i left her lips as they were, though i added fangs (she looked like a vampire to me).

Matt O'Neill ooak project tips? [15 Apr 2005|11:46am]

plaidedbra
[ mood | curious ]

i'm planning to buy a Matt O'Neill doll on ebay pretty soon. (at least, i hope to do so, because he's cheaper than Sean O'Neill) a few things confuse me right now. one, how do i take off his head to reroot? the one i have chosen is blonde (a cheap one on ebay), and i'd like to change his hair. i attepted to take off my Tyler's head, and failed, luckily not braking her. second, i want to change his jawline. i've seen repaints on ebay where they've resculpted his face, but they didn't reveal their methods. this is severely confusing to me. if i can't figure it out, i'm just going to save for a Sean doll instead. (as he has the nicer looking face; no icky jaw)

in other news, i haven't been repainting much. just knitting til the cows come home. i've stopped temporarily to work on a human-sized project, which is depressing me. (i can't finish it as quickly as the doll-sized pieces) i've been thinking about making doll-sized knitting for my Tyler or Barbie, but i want them to actually WORK and not just be for show. (really, i'm going to knit with the dinky needles!) i've tried with toothpicks, but the ends are too sharp. should i just file them down? also, it didn't work well with the yarn i have; the yarn reccomends size 6 needles, i think, though. is there such a thing as a smaller gauge yarn? i know smaller needles exist, but i want to find smaller yarn. i've considered using embroidery floss instead of actual yarn, but i thought that it wouldn't give the same effect as yarn. i haven't tried it yet, so this is just theory for now. if/when i do try it, i'll post pictures here.

thanks for all your help, guys.

i don't know if the Tyler dolls count as "rebel barbies", so delete this post if it's not applicable.

i've been very busy, knitting up a storm. here are some of the fruits of my labours: cut for imagesCollapse )

Hi, I'm new here. I've never done a Barbie makeover before but I'm getting ready to do one so I thought I'd see if I could get some advice.

I'm trying to make Velvet Goldmine dolls. I'm starting with Brian Slade:
Image hosted by Photobucket.com
Obviously it needs to be a Barbie, lol. I bought a Poison Ivy doll because the hair and lips were similar(picture here). The main thing I need tips for is removing the breasts. The doll has a rubber body so I imagine that'll make it easier. If anyone could give me some advice on how best to do that it would be much appreciated.
I'll post pictures when it's finished. Thanks in advance!

eBay postings! [09 Dec 2004|11:32am]

i don't know if you remember my last post. anyway, if you remember (or decide to look in the archive), all that stuff is on eBay now! go go, run! all of this will be posted ONLY ONCE! you snooze you lose, sorry. i can't afford to post these more than once. if you buy more than one item, you'll totally save on shipping. in fact, if you buy as much as you can, it'll all be compacted into one little box to help you save money!

well, if you're broke, such as I, go ahead and view 'em anyway. most of the auctions are episodes of Finola and Friends, the only all-doll talkshow ever! yes, i have a lot of time on my hands. btw, i painted and built the set all by myself. *beams* ^___^

hey, i've got a lot to post. i've been cleaning out all of my doll stuff, as i'm moving next year. yeah, i know i'm early, but i need to get rid of the stuff i've repainted. it's starting to pile up.
cut for your protection. definetly work safe!Collapse )
i am seriously cheap about selling these dolls (except for Finola). i'm talking about $5 a doll. i pack 'em small to keep shipping down, too! multiple dolls means saving on shipping. i'm just too lazy to post on ebay right now.

help a friend out! if they don't make it on ebay after one or two listings, they go to the thrift store! noooooooooooo!!!!! (also, most haven't had their pant sealed yet, so you can change 'em still)

Hello people
I joined a while ago and this is my first attempt and creating a modified barbie. She looks much cuter now then when she was just a cheesy blonde.

yay! i have new doll art! woot woot! *dances around*



i haven't named her yet, so i'm open to suggestions. beware about naming her something to do with her hair colour. it's a wig, and i'm planning on getting various unnatural-coloured wigs for her.
on to the pictures!Collapse )
