talk about a 180 degree turn?

August 13th, 2010 (01:56 am)

I went over to Fairyland to see if I could find a LTF head sculpt that could work for chibi Vejiita. I got sucked into an entirely different direction before I even got to the LTF page.

I've been debating on what girl doll to re-body/head Drew. I had been pretty much set on the FL MNF Dark Soo Elf but recently I was leaning toward the Woosoo Vampire/Elf due to the same basic jaw and face shape as Drew's current head (Souldoll Griffi - retired sculpt).

When the Chicline came out, I thought Drew could move to the Dark Soo and kill two birds with one stone - replace him with a female form and give Hatori a girlfriend since the Chicline is the same size as the Orientdoll Dae size. But I really want elf ears on the Chicline head. She has to be not human so Hatori won't transform into a baby dragon (seahorse) when he hugs her.

Going toward the Chicline would mean I would have to get a whole new wardrobe, eyes and wig to get the girl to be Drew-like, and Tonner clothes are not cheap (heavy sigh). The MNF would use the same clothing, eyes, wig I have now for the current Drew. Actually, I have a buyer for the current Drew so I need to get another pair of eyes so she gets him the way he is now.

Then FL announced new dolls coming out for their summer event and saw HER:



NOT EVEN CLOSE to what I was imagining Drew to change to. Drew wears black, white and burgundy, with some other colours mixed in depending on the clothing. But he's mostly a Gothling Lolita.

But I really like this new girl - love the purple and white outfit and those big boobs and the lace. Even the lavender blue eyes, - note none of my dolls have blue eyes except Ki and those are really bright turquoise, not regular 'eye' blue.

She's a Chloe. It's like going from dark Drew to light Drew. One downside - no elf ears.

I think I need to see her face more closely to make the final decision. And again, that Chicline would really and truly kill two birds with one stone so I don't have to get another doll to make Hatori happy.

Don't worry about clothes for her. I have Tonner patterns and I am not afraid to use them. (I have now made an historically accurate Regency dress for a 10.5 inch doll and am working on French Fashion Doll clothes.) By the way, what colors does Hatori wear. I designed a pant pattern that really fits the Tae body and the legs are long enough. I love a flat front pant on these guys-they make every other doll look awkward.

Hatori

Hatori is BORING. Some basic dark blue dress pants perhaps?

He wears suits almost all the time and has almost all the Matt O'Neill ones, including matching shoes and socks. Colour schemes are black, grey and brown.

He has one pair of jeans, one pair of khakis, one pair of brown dressy-casual pants.

He has a few casual shirts, a hakama set, a set of novelty boxers he hates and some sweaters.

I wish I had his Tonner case here at the apt - I'd take a photo of the contents.

Hatori

Oh yes, the brown casual pants are more like brown/rust.
