To avoid confusion, the grey is not the skin colour but the primer I spray on to fill in scratches and smooth the surface. I use a car surface primer spray (an acrylic one, easy to find at a car store, you're looking for surface primer. Just don't get spray on putty, too thick lol. I also recommend getting a hobby primer too, just for the last few coats. I like Mr Surfacer.)
I've also decided to change the size of her body. She was going to be about 35cm, but I think she'll end up being just a really skinny MSD, at around 40-45cm. She'll have yosd sized feet but I'm thinking of either MSD sized feet too, so that she can wear all sorts of shoes. When she was to be a tiny she would have come with yosd and pullip/momoko sized shoes, but I think the latter would be too small if if she was going to be taller.
She has a 5-6inch head and she's closer the 5 than 6 so she might even wear 4-5 stretchy wigs. She's going to have a long, thin torso, but won't look as though she hasn't eaten. She'll look like it's her body type. and she'll have a cute tummy with obvious hips. Acoe (this face mold's name) will also come with the option of being a boy - he can come with a flat chest and a boy torso, or a flat chest and a girl torso, or a large chest and a girl torso... or a boy tosro if you want, I'm happy to cast whatever, considering the pieces will be separate. The limbs will be the same on the boy and girl, and both should come with open hands, and fist hands, and maybe sleeping/relaxed hands, as I hope to do a sleeping face. I'm also thinking about a dreaming elf head, with claw hands. That'd be good fun to sculpt.
Anyway, so I'm thinking, for the whole doll, around $400 without a faceup? faceups would be around $50 I think, no customs sorry though! Just a variety of say three or four looks to choose from. There will be faceup options because I will be very sick of the same faceup. The dolls will also be very limited in numbers, but only by preorder. Say, 10 or so until I can get enough to have Dollshe cast them etc. But there will be multiple preorders, so there aren't any limits as much as it's my own limitations.
Would you buy her/him - available in white and normal skin, and maybe tan? (though tan would be a bit extra)
I've really surprised myself with it all, and I am so enthusiastic about it. This is going to happen, so prepare yourselves. I'm also not sure what to call my company, though I know I'd like to call Acoe's size my Wanderlings, as the dolls will have a sort of vague story together, in that they are a kind of people who don't live in one place, they just keep moving. At least, those are the Wanderling. I want the whole theme to be very earthy, like nomadic hippies? Yeah XD
Anyway, any help would be much appreciated, and I'm sure I can do something for anyone who can manage to spark my imagination. I'm also sorry for disappearing, i'm quite sick with a bad chest/head cold and my net went down and is now capped, so it's all just been a week of shit luck.
AGAIN. FACEUP IS FOR FUN LOL. To give you an idea of what she'd look like with a face. NOT GREY SKIN. THAT'S THE PRIMER. Okay. love you guys! You're so smart, you know what primer is! Thanks for looking, and I hope you like her (and/or can appreciate my feeble skill mongering XD)
I also bled on her which means she's real artsy and shit now. Pain means I tried. Blood means I FOUGHT FOR IT. And made a bit of a mess.
(doll head by me! WOO I AM FREAKING STOKED OMG HOW DID I MANAGE THIS. I MADE STILL LIFE)
She's beautiful! And I adore her faceup as is, it's better than any I could every do!
I can't wait to see the final product up and ready to sell!
I can't wait to see the finished product; I'm sure it'll be stunning.
As soon as I work up the money, it'll be headed your way~
This doll alone immediatly caught my eye when I logged onto my DA (it's right at the front of my messages) and the first thing that came to mind was "omg so cute what mold is that?!". I am very impressed by the detail and work you put into this, it's amazing!! Can't wait to see a finished product.
And on a off note, hope you feel better!! D: Colds are no fun at all.
I have a hair stylist that bled for me once. I have REALLY thick hair and as she was thinning it my hair got caught in the sheers. She ran her finger to get the hair out and didn't realize how gunked it was. She sliced her finger open and couldn't find a bandaid so she duct taped her finger and continued while blood ran down her arm and dripped on the floor. It required stitches. After that (even though it's a 9 hour drive now that we've moved) I won't let anyone else touch my hair. I've ridden for 12 hours on trains just to go back to her.
BTW Im not into these dolls myself, but I really love it when I see such perfect work, whatever it is, such care about detail. Its astonishing how alive these dolls feel. I guess some time I might get a doll like this, just to live up a room a bit. And another great thing... these dolls actually never looks creepy! Which is pretty amazing...lol
"I also bled on her which means she's real artsy and shit now."
Man I cannot tell you how often I heard that in architect school.
.3. EVEN IF THE GREY IS PRIMER.
I think she's really cute in grey ;3; *grabby hands for greyskin option*
I will study you.
