It's been a long Chinese New Year holiday. I finally managed to complete painting and hair-styling my first two custom 1/6 dolls. They're the first decent results since I've completely failed in my previous attempts, lol.
They're head-to-toe Volks, from body, head, to their outfits. The girl wears a Tenshi-no-Koromo outfit. The guy's clothing is from WTG-BF Selfish line. I regret not picking up the jacquard jacket and shawl collared jacket while I was in Japan, because now that I want it, it's out-of-stock on Volks' website. X<
The Neo Go #3 head turned out to be more androgynous than I'd preferred, but I tried my best to downplay the pouty lips.. with not very much succcess, lol. Still have another #3 head to paint before I start using the manlier looking #2.
The female head is actually a mini, on a midi body. The proper midi head is bald because I haven't taught myself to root by hand yet. I'm still learning as I go along and reading tutorials by experienced customizers. On one hand, looking at their work inspires me, on the other hand - (and on bad days I must admit) it's depressing when my own results fall far short of their standards. But I'll keep trying, heheh.
Cutting their hair left these two small clumps, which I'm reluctant to throw away since it costs quite a bit to import doll supplies. They're too short to root another head. Anyone have any ideas?
I haven't thought of names or backgrounds for them yet, but I'm thinking along the lines of the blonde guy being a lesser known relative of Lestat, of Anne Rice's vampire novels fame. Seems to fit him wearing the frilly shirt.
I'll replace these with better photos after Timo lends me his camera. :)
