College Savings Dolls – Clothes!

I mostly sew for BJDs, but when a dear friend of mine asked me to sew for her new line of dolls, I couldn’t wait to get started.

College Savings Dolls are wonderful dolls with realistic body proportions. Check out their site as well. ๐Ÿ˜€

In preparation for the Chicago Toy and Game fair, she requested career-based clothes for the girls.

I started out with a fairly basic skirt and sweater, and then created the sundress and cardigan. I’ll also be working on nurse and doctor scrubs.

Mitsuwa Meet – September 27

We had a fantastic Mitsuwa meet on September 27! So fun to see all the great dolls ๐Ÿ˜€

I was only able to get pics of a few that attended (sorry for those I missed!).

 

Face-up Fun

I forgot how much I like doing face ups! I was able to finish a few over the past week or so and I can honestly say, I think I want to get back to doing them on a more regular basis <3

I did a face up on a friend’s Dollshe boy (Ebony Bernard). His lips came out super shiny which makes him look รผber feminine. But his owner loves him so I left it. If I get the chance, I may do a quick spray of ZM spray to lessen the shine.

The same owner also had me do a face-up on his relatively obscure RML 01. Real Missing Link dolls are pretty hard to find now, but I love them! Love this guy!

I was also able to finish up my modded ResinSoul Song. I got him in a trade quite some time ago with the intent of cleaning him up and selling him. Now, I’m not so sure… he’s so stinkin’ cute!
