Happy New Year!
Today my Clawdeen got her first real photoshoot. I gave her hair some soft pink highlights and thought she might pull off a more sweet look. She wasn't impressed! Using a darling Blythe dress with some fierce MH accessories I think we came up with a unique (and adorable!) look. I was going to repaint her lips a soft pink too, but, as my poor Cleo found out the hard way, I'm not too great with painting tiny details.
For adding highlights I used the same method as in my Reroot Tutorial but rather than cutting all the hair off, just add the highlights to the existing plugs, wherever you like! A quick way to make your doll one of a kind. Be sure to remove the head carefully (see the tutorial) as I broke her neck peg by being too hasty. Poor girl. Must figure out how to fix it so her head stops falling off. Hah

The skeleton shoes! Nope, still no sightings in stores. I got these on eBay, thankfully I found them quite fairly priced. I adore the mould, but they are made of such a soft plastic that it is hard to stop the heels bending even on the stand. This is unfortunate and stops them from making it into my list of fave MH shoes. They do look great, but are just too soft to be practical.
That's all for today. Keenly awaiting another eBay package, be prepared for the Skull Shores ghouls to be thrown into the mix! (Yay! My first Abbey!) I ordered them online too, again, no luck in my local stores.
Hope someone out there noticed my little Zelda reference in the title! Also, I fear I use too many exclamation points...
