Well i just finished my first custom!
When i got my :lrrh:, i wasnt too happy with her stock makeup.
i thought it looked to yellow...and her lipstick clashed with her eyes. my friend said she looked like "a christmas tree." :lol:
so in my first attempt i stripped her of her stock makeup and just made her lips like rovam's and gave her pink blush. i want to happy with it, so yesterday, i stripped it again and gave her:
neon yellow eyeliner on her upper lids, neon pink liner on her lower lids, brown eyelashes, brown eyebrows, peach paja-esque lips and peachy blush. i also put my new wig on her. (platinum blonde/gray pixie cut fur wig)
i was surprised cuz her faceup came out looking like :paja: (my grail). :lol: i love it to deathhhh!
i like her new wig, it makes her look more playful.
so, story is completed!!! My first custom girl!

And I took off Cavalie's face-up last night and daaaamn does he have more make-up than a Pullip XD I haven't decided if he's gonna be Wray or Steven yet, but probably Steven since he's been sporting Steven's clothes and wig for the past week. I'll post him as soon as I'm done.

i am thinking of doing my first custom on a princepessa. i honestly find her stock look kinda creepy...

i was wondering if since this is a rare doll, i should not do a custom on it.

i found it cheap, so... i dont know...

So, I scooped up an MJ Taeyang for a nice price from a fellow dolly collector and gave him a makeover just yesterday. It's been a long time since doing anything like it, a nice way to while away a cold evening indoors ;-)

who is he...Collapse )

Piper Lexington, Alternate Sailor Pluto, started life as a nude Brand New Purezza. I removed her wig and sanded her face off. I replaced her eyechips with brainworm forest green. 

so that's my story of Piper's face-up and customization. I have decided, I shall never use paint again and i find it funny that my camera quality improved as her face did XD

Hi everyone. I've been crazy busy with running an anime convention and roller derby lately and have had to sit down and decide what hobbies I really want to concentrate on. I wanted to let everyone know that I haven't dissapeared. londons_rose has decided to break off from darkrosedesigns to start her dream Tea/Alchemy business and I'm very excited for her. If you like tea I HIGHLY reccommend going to her when she gets off the ground. Her tea is TO DIE FOR!!!

Ok, now to the point of this post:) I'm still planning on doing customs and I have several new designs in the works for darkrosedesigns. I'm redoing my 'studio' and have a ton of stuff I need to clear out so I can start fresh with new items. What I'm thinking of doing is putting together grab bags of fabric and I was hoping to get a little feedback. I have a 7' cabinet that is filled to the brim with pretty much every kind of fabric you could imagine. Satin, silk, sari, cotton prints, brocade, you name it.

I'll be including enough of each fabric to make a dress. (As much as I use for a Yvette dress).So if I had four different fabrics in one grab bag you could make 4 short dresses out of the grab bag.

So here's what I need to know:
Would people be interested in fabric grab bags?
How big should they be and how much should they go for? (I know these two are dependant on each other) ex. If a bag had 4 pieces or 7.
If you'd like to see what types of fabric I have to be giving away please see some of my sample fabrics here http://www.darkrosedesigns.com/materials.htm I'm not looking at giving away any lace yet as I don't have very much left.

If this is something you might be interested in please help me out with some feedback so I can start putting these together.

Hello all!

I am considering a custom Taeyang project, and I'd like to start from a blank face. Aside from sanding, what solutions can I use to remove the face paint? I have used rubbing alcohol before, but I wonder if there is anything more effective. Thanks!
