Kirk and Spock
Back in November I wanted to have a Kirk and Spock doll. I have always been a lover on big dolls and I figured if i was going to get them i would get the biggest I could. I want looking around for someone who could make doll heads and i found a wonderful artist Dolly's Dolls she does wonderful work and I plan to order more from her in the future. Now you are all probally wondering if I am so creative Why didn't I make the heads myself. Well I can make little 1/6scale heads no problem but the big ones never work for me. I am very happy to have found Dolly. Enough about me lets go on to the creation of Kirk and Spock.
Being a Fan of Star Trek I could not decide what Kirk and Spock I wanted my dolls to be so I found the combined picture of Chris Pine/William Shatner and Leonard Nimoy/Zach Quinto, with a few mods. I went with the pictures but with Leonards nose. Shatners cheeks and Chris Pines smile.
I sent her all the photos and payment and in no time at all she sent me this photo and asked if that were good. I was so happy they looked so good. She used Sculpey Firm. These were huge heads they were big enough enough to hold a 10inch wig I really wanted them to be big.
I loved the heads but something was a Bit off so I had her make Kirk's Cheeks more like Shatners I really Like his nice cheek bones. This is just another picture of her working on the dolls.
Now this is them ready to be painted. I do still wonder what eyes I should have picked for Kirk. Spock had brown no question most Vulcans have brown and so do Nimoy and Quinto. Kirk was hard Shatner has hazel btu Pine has blue. I still question if I made the right Choice but in the end I choose blue for Pine.
Once the heads were done it was the hard choice of picking a body. Well the only ones who I could find affordable for the bodies both were good and in the end I went with the one I thought was more accurate for Kirk and Spock. They both got 68cm Mirodoll bodies. One normal skin and other Tan. I know spock is normally pale but in the light Tan has a greenish tint.
Once the bodies were picked I sent her a message and Dolly Finished painting the heads she did a great job at matching the color with matching the paint and never physically seeing the bodies.
I did not get her to do the face up nothing negative, Just for me Face-up is my job. Even when companies sell me dolls with face-ups I never want to keep them thats my job lol. so after a all of that I just had to wait for the heads in the mail. The Bodies did come sooner but they were ordered first. I just waited. Also the wigs took some time both wigs were ordered from Luts. Now you heard their origin story you can see them all nicely finished going on adventures. They stand 74cm tall and are just the first of many.

Yao The Ice Demon
Recently purchased one I received her she was not as I expected. She is still cool and very nice just I was expecting something more bad ass. So I am showing Here the work that was put into her. She is a Resin Soul 1/4 Scale MSD. She has Fleshtone skin, I ordered her from Junky Spot.
This is the head as I received it. With the original Face up. I didn't quite care for it. Not saying it's bad, It was very well done Just when it comes to dolls I like to do my own style.
I forgot to take a picture of the hooves unpainted and how they came but (sorry about that). This is the first coat of paint on the hooves. I painted them with Citadel Paints.
One horn is painted and the other is not. This is the first layer. Now what should note is before I painted I looked looked at my wigs and decided what hair color she was going to have. Once I knew the hair color the rest came to me and my Ice Demon was ready to be born.
Well I finished the head, sorry not many pictures but there wasn't much that I did differently. I gave her new white eyebrows but kept the old brows under them so it added depth. I gave her blue eye shadow from my watercolors. Thicken her eyeliner and giving her white and black under lashes. Painted her eyelids silver. Added details to the nose and ears. Lastly painted her lips silver.
Second coat to the hooves make them have no imperfections before I add the 3rd layer.
From there she was done. 4hours later she is finished she is now Yao the Ice Demon. I have her forsale on a few sites I hope she finds a forever home soon.

Cyan The Centaur, That is the name I gave her. She is a Impldoll Trisha young doll 46cm deer body. I really wanted a Centaur and I felt bad I had missed a few other limited editions that were sold by other companies I was sad and tried to find one second hand then I found Trisha. I had to have her. 3 months later I she was home. Then the work had to be done to her. I did order her with the face up outfit and wig. I used the wig for her on my doll Moon. I also did change her face up a bit to get the look I wanted which will all be shown in this step by step guide to her creation.Citadel Paints I couldn't find there website before. They are acrylic and stay on dolls quite well when dry.
Second coat I painted a dark red on the parts that seemed to be the Thicker parts of her fur. Also you will notice the tail and fur patch are being painted the same way.
4th layer is not the end. To accent the colors and make it more of the correct color and add more definition. Almost done here.
I also started painting the horns while I was waiting for the paint to dry on the hooves.
9 hours later Cyan is done. This is the hardest doll I have ever done. I loved working on her I can't wait for my male to show up so I can work on him. She might have been hard, nothing I couldn't do just 4 legs 4 times the amount of work I was not expecting. She is seen in the lower left picture showing off her front hair piece that's is magnetic and one of the accessories I had shown I was working on.
The right picture shows her front covered and the necklace she is wearing. that is a a chainmail one I made it is a red and silver Celtic spike with a Chain Sweat Pea weave.
