It’s been a while, but ..!

I have something to show off this time! (: Marceline was finally completed in a way that’s acceptable enough for me haha.

I think I might add different shades of brown to her eyeshadow + add some more colors to her blush as well. I actually wanted to give her two teeth, but I have issues with making things symmetrical haha. So I scrapped the second tooth and just kept this one (:

Oops! I seem to be partial to her red eyes, haha. I have other pictures with her other eyechips, but I guess I’ll show them off another day (:

Something of an update!

138/366: WIP

This is what she looks like currently .. I’m really sad I carved out so much. Now that I painted the first face I carved, I like the cat-like smile better. This one just looks like she got hurt x: I might turn her into something else later or scrap it completely. From this angle, her lips don’t look as crazy, but from the front, I feel like they’re way too full! Anyways. I’ll probably sell this face plate on eBay or sell the doll as bait and then buy another D:

Would you call this progress?

I got my alpaca re-rooted scalp from Pip in the mail yesterday! 😀 I have no idea where my Prairie Posie is, though! <___< I feel like sellers constantly mark my items as shipped when all they've done is printed out a shipping label I: That should not count if they don't ship within the next business day. So now I've got a tracking number that doesn't work because my package hasn't been accepted yet – so it probably won't work until Monday at this rate rawr. I've already got the eyechips I want to use for her, but I'm still waiting on other supplies from Coolcat so I can start practicing carving on my RBL faceplate! Waiting for international mail is hard! xD

:D

Things are coming together for my Marceline custom! I have my alpaca re-root from Piparott coming in the mail as of yesterday (UK time). Tools are coming from CC and I’ve already got her new eyechips. I also just bought a Praire Posie to be her base (: I’ve actually received a blank FBL faceplate which I’ll use for practice – I mean, I really don’t want to mess up her smile! All I need to do now is wait for everything to arrive x) I’m so excited!

A wonderful interview + giveaway! (BlytheLife.com interviews Cocochoo)

Go to BlytheLife.com to read the full interview with Coco! It’s worth a read – especially because we get to see the face behind the artist n__n Coco and BlytheLife are also teaming up to give away this amazing faceplate shown above!

I’ve been a long time fan of custom Blythes. Some artists are just so amazing when it comes to bringing their ideas to life. Coco is no exception to that. What I’m most curious about is the tools that customizers use on their dolls – specifically for carving! When I was still into Pullips&company, there were few people actually modding or carving. But it seems that the majority of customizers carve out their Blythes’ lips. While I’ve only done minor mods (boggled eyes, sleep eyes, eyechip changes), I’d love to get into carving. With my Marceline custom in mind, I’ll have to do just that in order to achieve her smile! I wonder if I’ll be able to paint lips, though – that’s always been a struggle for me :’P

Adventure Time!

I recently started watching Adventure Time as a way to pass the time. Little did I know, this show is super addictive! The artwork is simplistic, but super cute! I fell in love with the show so fast that I even bought myself the Slamacow Finn (pictured below with Icarus the Alpaca). Now to get Jake! :’D

And with the recent invasion of Blythe into my life .. I’m even planning to make a Marceline custom Blythe! Yay! She’s just such a cute character!

I’ve ordered an RBL faceplate to practice carving. I’ve never done any carving work on Pullips, but I’m excited to try Blythe out. I’m probably just going to get a Simply Guava/Mango or one of the cheaper girls to customize. I’m going to get an alpaca reroot done as well so that her hair can “flow” heh. I think I’ve already got three sets of eyechips picked out for her. Not sure what I’m going to do for her lips (and more importantly, teeth!!), but I guess I’ll draft up some potential carvings sometime! I just love her little smirk. I was thinking semi-ducky lips with slightly upturned lips + sculpey teeth. Since I’m not experienced carving, sculpey will probably be the better choice heh. The other day, someone brought up lip stickers at Blythe Kingdom. I had no idea those existed, but I noted that template versions are offered! I might just have to snag some up!
