Fair Mio-kit face up

Posted on

Finally, FINALLY! I got my face up block broken, last Sunday I spent 6+ hours making this beauty. I feel like I got a new doll! :3 I like how she turned out, tough her lashes were not supposed to be violet… But after I made her violet eyelid lines… I was done for. Good thing I had really nice lashes for her. She needs a new wig, prolly black or violet or combination of them. I also put her on obitsu, might want her to have shorter one, but that was the only one I had available. (I wanted to put her in type 2 body, but the hole in her head was too small. I didn’t want to make it larger so…) Also her eyes should be more green, but on her I don’t really mind this more tealy color, it looks nice on her. :3

Well, without a further do, here is blind girl I made. I think her name is Milka (it was supposed to be Linnea…) after all. Hope you like her, at least I do! ^u^

Summer Challenge~ Week 1

Posted on

Hi! There is a Summer Challenge in Finnish Pullip-forum, which originally is now 4th Summer, and first time I will participate. I don’t think I am able to take a picture daily, but at least 1 picture per week. Here is last week’s pics! ^w^

1/14 A) Paradis
Her eyes are green really, sadly they look blue with my cam and the lighting. I hope they will be correct on different lights…

1/14 B) Novis in flowerbed

1/14 C) Milka waving
Last one I edited the lips. The smile is stronger in the new Mio-kits, I don’t think it was as sharp in the old one. There isn’t even any make up in there, and it still looks like that! Oh well.

Street, Bouquet and Withered

Posted on

Hi again! Here is my newest Pullip dolls Street and Bouquet accompanied by Withered, who I have owned for years already. (She was actually a re-buy too.) Street I wanted to try, I could have always customized her if I didn’t like her, but I think she is better than I feared. The change of eyes definitely does it for me (she has yellow eyes normally), maybe adding/changing her eyeshadow (part of it is actually yellowing, she has very little of eyeshadow normally), but I don’t think she needs anything else. Maybe repair the eyeliner a bit, but these oldest Pullips were all handpainted, so the quality of the face up can be really poor. It isn’t bothering me as much I thought it could actually.

Oh, and her eyes… It was pain in the ass. Endless carving… The eyes normally have see-trough middle and a deep trail under the iris of the eyechip… So putting on new chips is not very bad. She did not have it, it was having pretty much straight line from the side to the middle part (pupil), very similar to blythe, except that there was about no trail on the side at all (blythe has small one). So i couldn’t pop out her eyes the normal way and carved forever to get the chips to fit her. They still don’t go as deep as I would like, but I got so fed up with it, I thought as long as it stays, it can be okay for now…

They were all made in 2003, and Street was one of the first 3 Pullips ever made, others being Wind and Moon. I currently own 5 type 1 bodied Pullips, all made on 2003, since the type 2 body was from 2004 onward. I have Squall (blank, needs face up) and customized Bouquet (she never had the face up, so this was the first time I actually saw a stock face up of Bouquet).

Bouquet I got, I was planning on getting another Withered to customize since I kinda don’t want to erase the current one I have. So when I saw this Bouquet for sale, I thought that she could make a perfect twin, who I could have the face up on (there is not really much to begin with, I could prolly just paint over her current one, it is all stock, she comes like this) instead. When I got them to compare, I knew my gut was right. She definitely does it, she even has longer hair and different side on her parting, the color being just slightly lighter than Withered’s.

Also the naming is kinda silly… My Withered, even the old one, since forever, has been Mugen Suru. I just got it in my head one day, and even tough Suru is also Finnish, her name wasn’t supposed to be so. So apparently one day I toyed with the word, thinking a name for the twin and… I got to Sugen Muru. I am too much into it, I find it very cute, Muru also being Finnish and meaning ”dear.” (Also a bit of something.) Since I usually call Mugen by that name, I found it funny that Muru would use the second name instead, if using just one of the names. Oh well… x3

I will have extra close ups on all of their make ups in the end of the post.

Lets start with a pic of all 3!

(The quality of this pic is not very good, but I didn’t take enough of them all together… ^^;;; )
And all the pics were taken in inside lighting, so…

And as always… Click here: Continue reading »
