So How's The Doll Room Coming?

I am making very good progress on the doll room, but I haven't taken updated photos yet! Soon, my friends, soon! In the meantime, I thought you might like to see my latest body modification. 

I wasn't able to find the Barbie And The Rockers violinist anywhere in my area and the prices on eBay and Amazon were more than I was willing to spend. I did find her violin for only $3 and I had Fashionista # 75 Seeing Stars. She has the same facemold as the violinist although her skintone is a bit darker. She also has red hair which was close to the same color as the violinist. Seeing Stars is on an original body and the violinist is on a curvy body. As luck would have it, I had a spare Curvy body in the needed skintone, but I wanted to have her articulated. I also had a WWE Superstar body that matched the necessary skintone. So my brain started turning! After seeing many extreme hybrids done by John Pickles and other very talented kitbashers, I decided to get out my box cutter and give it a go. Here she is, my violinist on an articulated Curvy body! 

WARNING! NUDE DOLL PHOTOS BELOW!

Here is the finished doll! Look how she can hold and play her violin! Note, the violin is attached to her hands via clear rubber bands.

You go girl, play the violin!

Here is a look at her without her violin.

The next couple of photos show all of her joints. She have the torso, upper arms and thighs from the Curvy body. The lower arms and hand and the lower legs are from the WWE Superstar donor.

She can move well!

The view from the rear -- not so bad!

Here she is seated. She has pretty good flexibility. NOT MTM, but good and much better than no articualation at all. I am quite please with myself! 😁

I even gave her the beauty mark - just a dot with a brown Sharpie!

So what do you think? She is excited to show off her new body to the rest of my Rockers!
I really do like how she turned out! I will definitely be "making" more Curvy hybrids! What can I do next? We will have to see. When I do this again, I can take photos of the process if you guys would like to see how I did it!

Thanks for stopping by!

    1. I was too, but I figured I had enough Curvy bodies to practice on! The doll room is getting there. I can't believe how much stuff I have!

  10. She looks great and yes, please, I would love to see photos and details of the process. It sounds extremely intriguing.

  11. Oh my, you are very good at body customization! But like the others, I don't think I have the courage to try this. The beauty mark is an interesting way to distinguish a doll, especially when someone (like me) has so many of the same doll!

    1. That's the closest I've gotten to face painting, LOL! The body mods don't scare me so much any more, but face painting does. But I think is do a pretty good beauty mark, don't you? ;-)

  12. This is awesome! I still have yet to try something like this...

    1. I do really like the way that it worked out! I got tired of waiting for Mattel to do something!

  13. It is so cool that you can create a hybrid body. I'd pull a body apart and that would be about it. A body in pieces.

  15. The body mod is fantastic but I wish the WWE gals didn't have such big feet.

    ReplyDelete

    1. Yup, I know what you mean, but I'll take the big feet as long as I get an articulated Curvy in the bargain! I did cut off the feet on one of my Baby Sitter Club dolls that I put on a Project MC2 body and gave her some jointed ankle feet from a Barbie that had articulated ankles but stiff knees and arms. That worked out good!
