Same sculpt repaint project part one: nature girl and Diva
Haha, we’re not done with the repaint phase. I thought about creating a separate blog for all the non-BJD dolls, but I will just give them their own section. So please bear with me and the Barbies for a little while. 🙂
I thought it would be fun to take the same sculpt and create two different dolls. Some of you have already seen Christie (the nature girl) on facebook. But now her sister Nora is finished as well, and Nora is a complete Diva. Kind of like a girl who wants to look like a fashion doll, if that makes any sense.
I am of course one for the natural look, but painting Nora and making all the tiny bling was really fun. Since I didn’t really have any clothes for them I had to make some, so it took a little while longer to finish these two.
I hope you find their characters in their faces ;).
Christie – the nature girl
Christie’s colors are fresh and light – like mint, aqua or apricot. She’s freckled, fun and natural.
Nora – the Diva
Nora is a bit of a drama queen. She dreams of becoming a model, loves pink, violet and lots of jewelry. I wanted to give her a handbag, and tried a 65% print-out of one of my bag patterns. It was the only pink felt I had left, not quite the shade I wanted, but still :). Looking at the pictures I think I should have painted her nails as well. Maybe I’ll do that later.
This was really fun. I still have to giggle when I look at Nora, she’s such a Barbie. Lol. Which one do you like better?
