Automaton BJD Inspirations

A friend was over tonight and asked me for some files I had on my netbook that I haven’t used in several months. I actually just recently came across a few pictures I had grabbed from Google Images for inspiration while I was digging through the computer for other files and was reminded of some mods I had wanted to do. Unfortunately, I do not have links to the pages they originated from.

I currently have 2 dolls I would like to mod into automatons. I have so many ideas, and am really looking forward to having time to focus on them.

Doll #1 is an old Souldoll SoulKid Aru
When I say old – I mean old-school. She has been discontinued for years, and is on Souldoll’s 2nd MSD-size body which is closer in proportion to Volks MSD. (The 3rd version of the body is when Souldoll switched from the child-like bodies to be more of a mature/slim mini.)

Doll #2 is a damaged Bobobie Bao
I purchased him inexpensively since he was dyed bright red and had some other damage.

I’m so excited to get started on all of the project dolls I have accumulated over the past few years. Hopefully this year will be the year of completion!

5 Star Doll Tong Tong – Restoration

A few months ago, I found a 5 Star Doll Tong Tong for sale that needs quite a bit of TLC. I have not been able to get started on this girl until just recently due to getting married.

I am currently in the process of restoring this wonderful girl, and I can’t wait to get her back to her white skin.

All of her parts seem to be there. The previous owner dyed her blue, and it seemed to take unevenly.

From my past experience with dye on dolls, different resins take dyes differently. It also can make a difference if there is still mold release left on the doll, if the doll was sanded at all before being dyed, or even if the doll was sealed with a sealant like Zouk spray or MSC.

I’m hoping to show progress as the restoration is completed. In the mean time, the picture shown is the state of the poor girl when I received her.

Drow Kid Delf Elf Nara Pictures!

Pictures of the drow that was completed earlier this month!

She looks fantastic, in my opinion. Almost good enough to keep. 😉 However, I must sell her, so she is posted up on Den of Angels, and she will also be available at KollisionCon 2011.
