She's here! My 5th Ellowyne Wilde doll!

Finally, at last!  My 5th Ellowyne Wilde doll, Solitary Sojurn.   Wait I do have a pix of her.....

Solitary Sojurn

Mine you, this is not one of my pics.  I borrowed it from one of the ladies in one of my doll groups who was selling this doll.  Isn't she gorgeous?  I finally got her and at a really good price.  Patience is the best virtue!  I just thought of her new name....Patience.  Here's another picture of her from Wilde Imagination.


Sometimes I wonder about these outfits they dress these dolls in!  Beware, the stocking leave marks on the dolls' legs and sometimes it's hard to get it off.  Of course you can send the doll back for a new one...but who wants to go through all that?  This doll....err actually all of these EW dolls are my Christmas present to moi!  Still luving my dollz!  Now I have to redress her, make her some jewelry and take her pics with everyone else.  Well that'll probably be done tomorrow afternoon.   All for now!  Well....time to check out some youtube videos on jewelry making!  Lata!  :D

Doll Styles

There's so many ways to create styles for your doll.  Enhancement of the eyes and lips giving your doll a newer look is just like having a new doll!  I'll be hanging out at youtube to see what else they have that can be learned to create new doll styles!

Outlining the iris

OK OK, this is the last video for now on enhancing and/or repainting the eyes! Tomorrow or this weekend I'll see what other videos we can learn from. Until next time good night!

Supplies

Here's the video about the supplies needed for enhancements and/or repainting as you see fit. I just bet they has the same paint that I bought years ago! Oh well, I'll just have to buy it again and a little bit at a time. Guess I'd better put that on my New Year's list right after learning how to sew! :D

Simple Eyelashes

Adding eyelashes too? OMgoodness! Oooh, I can imagine some eyelashes on my Ello - I know she would just love that! Something new to try for the new year!

Shading the eyelid Part 1

More on eyes and eye lids!

Placing the Pupil

I guess I should've posted these videos in order. But you'll get the drift of it!

Painting the Iris part 3

More on repainting the eyes.  One day I'm going to try enhancing one of my Ello girls.  I'd love to try a different eye color and darker lips.  Will post pix of that!

Shading the Eye Whites

About 6 years ago, I went a little crazy wanting to learn how to repaint my dolls.  I bought everything that I needed - paint brushes in every size, paint in all the colors, pencils, etc.  I never realized just how small a barbie doll's eyes really are.  You need alot of patience and must practice as much as you can to be good at it.  Later on I realized that "repainting" wasn't going to be my thing!  That's when I decided I wanted to be a doll jewelry maker!  Much easier or so I thought!  But I learned alot, looked at alot of videos from different bead sites and eventually became a jewelry maker.  I can make jewelry for my dolls and for people.

Eye Enhancement

 Here's another video by the same author of the Lip Enhancement.  This is for Eye Enhancement.  I guess this is  the best way to learn how to repaint dolls.  Love the music too!

Lip Enhancement



I always wanted to learn how to repaint my dolls - but found out the hard way that it's just way too much work!  LOL!   I've forgotten that if you want to learn "how  to" do something, that youtube is the best place to go  Check out this video on lip enhancement.  I'd like to try this on my Ello gals!

My Other Dolls

I know when I began this blog it was supposed to strictly be about Ellowyne Wilde, but I have to give some time to my other dolls as well.  So this post will be about my other dolls.  When I first started collecting it was Barbie first.  I had just several dolls that I played with and the rest were still in their boxes, sitting on the shelves getting admired.  But that was it!  Then after I got online I found out about other people who loved Barbie and joined several doll groups that were just about Barbie.  While reading stories from others and drooling over others' dolls I found out that there were other doll makers and that's how I became addicted to dolls!  Then Mattel came out with the My Scene dolls (similar to the Bratz) whom I fell in love with at first sight!!    Here are my versions of the My Scene dolls who've been body swapped with the Model Muse bodies!!

Madison

Kenzie

Nolee

Barbie

Delancey

Chelsea
Jai
After them I discovered a Janay doll while shopping at K-Mart.  That's when I found out about  Integrity Toys and their playline dolls Janay, Alyssa and Tariq just to name a few. I thought they'd make great friends for all my Barbie dolls.  And they did for a while, until I discovered the Fashion Royalty dolls - Adele Makeda, Veronique and Vanessa Perrin, Kyori Sato and so many more that came after that.  My collection grew to 150 dolls!  Well, I had so many dolls and so little time to play much less who was I to play with?  That being the question, I had to downsize my collection  and make way for my newer loves the Fashion Royalty dolls.  Alas, after going crazy and obtaining Adele Makeda, Kyori Sato, Isha, Veronique, Collette D., Erin, Nadja and Francisco and mind you, I had more than 1 of these dolls!!! It was time to downsize again.  I had found myself bored with these dolls.  (Yes, it's possible for that to happen!) So, one by one I sold them all until I had one doll left Exotica Adele Makeda. 

But now she's gone too!  After selling all my Fashion Royalty dolls I fell in love with a 17" doll by the name of Lara Croft.  She's from the video game Tomb Raider.  (Did I mention that I play video games too?) I told all my dolly friends that I would never get a big doll because they're BIG!  But when Robert Tonner came out with the Lara Croft doll - I had to have her!  She is so beautiful and she looks just like she does in the video game.  Well, Tomb Raider is my favorite video game of all time.   I had all seven of the game and now I had to have the doll.  No thought about her size - I just had to have her!


(Her outfits came from ebay too!  Jade Penni Creations is my doll fashionista!  She made all the clothes for my Lara!) :D  Well, after Lara came she needed a boyfriend and he came as Will Turner (Orlando Bloom from the Pirates of the Caribbean).  He's a babe and he and Lara look like they were made for each other!





Well after getting these two dolls, out came another Lara Croft from the video game Tomb Raider Legend and you know I had to have that doll as well!  And you know she needed a boyfriend too!!  Her name is Lana Croft (she's Lara's cousin) and King of Hearts - Jeremy Smyth is Lana's boyfriend.  They too look great together!



Lana has alot of attitude and Jeremy has a great sense of humor.  Perfect!  You know what they say about opposites attract...!  Here's another picture of them together....

After these four dolls, I discovered that I did like these BIG dolls and yep (you guessed it) looked on ebay for more dolls.  But I found out about the Tyler Wentworth collection and her friends!  That's how I came to own six Esme' dolls and Jac.  Then came Friday Foster and Russell Williams.  sigh....It didn't stop with them, RT came out with Antoinette and then the Cami dolls.  Now I'm into the bigger dolls and I love them!    So, after looking around my bedroom I figured I needed space for these dolls and it was time for my other dolls to go!  Yep, so I packed a box and started selling and giving the dolls away.  I sent them to other doll friends who love dollz as much as I do!  That's when Ellowyne Wilde came into the picture.  I got a catalog from a co-worker and drooled over the pages for a year!  Then this year came and I was able to buy Essential Ellowyne and that's all she wrote!  The rest is history!

Brittany's Photo Shoot

Hereeeeeee's Brittany!  Yes folks I am truly loving this doll!  She brings a joy to my heart...of course my other dolls don't like hearing that because I wasn't as enamored about them the same way.  But then, every doll is different and it's not like I don't like them anymore - it's just that EW's are a different kind of doll!!  Well, I don't know how to explain it, but here's more pics of Brittany!


This is when she first came to live with us. You can see the other dolll's legs in the background.  I won this outfit from another young lady on ebay.  I guess you can say I've been busy on ebay buying clothes for these dolls!  Woo hoo! 

Here's when Brittany met Brianna.  Now their friends forever!  Well, at least until the other gals get over their jealousy from all the attention.  Incidentally, I bought alot of clothes for these dolls.  Brianna's wearing an outfit from Viva La Posh.


Doesn't she look so relaxed.  I took her hair down in the back and now she looks so much better!  Here's more pics!







I know I mentioned it before, but these gals are really photogenic.  They take gorgeous pics!  They're also very versatile and can wear a variety of different types of outfits.
Ah, this outfit I won also from ebay (:D ) heh heh




Until tomorrow!  Have a good nite!

I SO DO LOVE THIS DOLL!

Here's some more pics of my Ellowyne doll, only this one is my new one Brittany.  She's formerly a BAROQUE AND DREAMS Ellowyne Wilde doll.  I really love the names Wilde Imagination gives these dolls (broken dreams) that's what it sounds like to me.  Well, I don't care I still love this doll!  Brittany is so photogenic and a great model to work with.  Tee hee hee  Check out her pictures!

I love how these sweater outfits look on her!  I won this set from a lovely ebay seller signs_just4u.  She makes the most darling outfits for EW!
