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!

I'm just so Wilde about Ello!

I am so loving these dolls - sigh...  Well, I've finished shipping off my other dollies and clothing to my favorite people.  LOL!  Ode to the smaller dolls and now back to the bigger dolls.  Which would be EW!  Here's some recent pics I took of Brittany.  She is so PHOTOGENIC and takes really great pictures!  Check her out in another new outfit (I may not be able to share this outfit with the other ladies).  See for yourself...
