Customised DollsHave you ever bought or received a doll and been disappointed by the paint work on the features? Maybe it was a barbie-esque doll, or an action figure, or a collectable doll of a favourite character. You open up the package, look at the factory paint job and just can't help but feel a little disappointed by the finish. The lack of finesse. The way it looks so little like the character or the actor it's based on.
Many deviants take to customising dolls to turn the ordinary into the extraordinary. It might mean changing the hair, or the clothes, or the accessories. But the most amazing transformations usually happen with complete repaints of the face. Static features are replaced with dynamic ones. New levels of realism, fantasy, beauty and creativity breathe new life into old plastic.
Here are a few extremely skilled deviants with deviations showing the before and afters of their work. These artists have a plethora of gems lying throughout their gallery so if their work here strik
New Bobini Head Preview! Blast from the Past...I mentioned in my journal a few days ago that I was working on a new head pattern to make my Bobinies more like their illustrative counterparts with their noses and more rounded cat-like heads, and this morning I nailed it.
Ignoring the random cotton choice, it was the only one to hand in a super speedy spin of creativity!
I was looking back through my gallery, and after swallowing my pride I finally accepted to myself that I had in some ways taken a step backwards with my plushies. Comparing the Guardians to the Bobinies resulted in a mini temper tantrum followed by a creative explosion and many MANY new head prototypes
They still weren't quite there, until I looked at a picture of Cameron this morning, my favourite Guardian to date
And then it all fell into place. It suddenly occured to me that although I'm by no means the first person to have ever combined a bl

Thank you Talty!As some of you might know, today was `Talty's last day as a CV. So I wanted to take a moment to celebrate all she has achieved for our 'little' Artisan Crafts community, and ask you join me in thanking her for all her hard work.
I, like many of you, know my dA experience would have been very different if not in part for `Talty's hard work. She (along with ^maytel) found me when I was an obscure newbie and sought to expose me and my gallery to the wider community through a Daily Deviation and numerous features. Her words of encouragement, support and her actions helped me to grow as an artist, and helped me be recognised for it. This is a story I share with many of you for whom she has done all she can to help and bring exposure to.
Here's a look at some of the diverse works she featured as Daily Deviations

Cosplay Wig Bangs...Pissing me off for Noel KreissI swear, if there is one thing that's been grinding my gears, it's cosplay wig bangs.
Snow Villiers? No problem with his bandana to keep his hair in place.
Noel Kreiss....okay, now were getting a little too exact. I tend to be a picky with how things look on my cosplay, and sometimes there are things I can't help. But those bangs...on Noel's hair...are annoying. I thought it was simple, and overtime as I snipped little by little, I began to realize that his bangs are all placed a certain way and snipped to a certain point.
The center bang is long at the middle, enough to reach between the eyes while the sides of that particular bang are shorter. Though, at different angles, it actually seems like there's two bangs rather than one center one similar to Snow Villiers. One that's just long and the other short (the short one located furthest away where his hair parts)
...Now we get on to the layers of his bangs. One that goes over his left eye brow slightly and is overlapping the center ba
My New Wand Business!Hey guys, I recently just started a wandmaking business.
Business starts on Friday, and here's a description of
everything on my Tumblr page.
Fabric Collection for SaleHello everyone! I'm currently thinking about selling my entire printed cotton fabric collection, as I no longer have a use for it (explanation will follow in early July for this ) would anyone be interested? I'm not sure if selling it as a whole or just selling certain parts would be the better option , but if anyone is interested in it as a whole, I'm looking for around £200 not including postage. There's the majority of the cottons I used for the Guardians and had in my latest inventory, save for one or two which have run out as they were only fat quarters. There's just over 100 different prints in my collection, which is all worth around £800-£900 in total.
If anyone is interested, please send me a note
