I just finished my first Monst doll repaint. She was the little girl with the half closed eyes. Her company name is Chouchou. While I wanted to keep a bit of her grumpy or sceptical expression, a new name is in order. I thought something that would allow me to name the other girls in a similar style might be fun. Like Zazie, Lulu, Mimi, Lele and so on. Maybe Amber, Olive, Ruby, Hazel? Or following the candy-idea of my friend Linda: Butterscotch, Fudge, Cookie, Jellybean…
I hope you get the idea. What do you think would suit this little girl? Nothing too sweet, something that sounds a bit cheeky, maybe?
I have made lots and lots of clothes, but I had very little time to take pictures, so you get to see just a few out of many. And the sunlight wasn’t the best light, I hope you can still see enough detail.
This little lady is an overalls type of girl I think. The dark blue and yellow overalls set is the outfit she came in. I made the jeans overalls for her. Unfortunately the patch on her knee is covered by the pug, I have to take a better picture of this some other day.
She does like stripes, apparently. So I made some more stripy clothes for her. The shoes are Blythe/OB11 shoes, but smaller doll shoes fit her as well.
She does look nice in a dress, though. With or without pug. Sewing for these girls is so much fun! I hope I will have better light to take pictures next weekend.
I hope you like her – and help me find a name.
Post edit to add:
Thanks to Linda and her idea with the candy-names this girl has a name now: Toffee. Brown and sweet.
Lovely suggestions were made on facebook (and here), but I thought the candy names were so unique and fun that I decided to go with them. And I think Toffee really suits her. Thanks to all those who made suggestions!
When i saw her a name pop up to me and since then no other fit her well enough ( for me) It is “Lilou” there is maybe “LLulu” with the 2 l, “Pennie” voilà for now
Thank you very much for the suggestion, that’s a good name. I think it would suit the next girl even better, they will all need names 🙂
She does look lovely in stripes. You know I love your repaint, and the outfits are wonderful! That little pug is also adorable, they look so good together. 🙂
Thank you! And thanks for your help 🙂
Hi Toffee! You’re welcome, I’m glad you like the idea 😊
And I will try making toffees, I mean the ones for eating 😀
love the eyes,the originals are ok but the repaint gives more life to the doll! i’ve begun sewing for mine,a challenge as i haven’t sewn in months.
Thank you! And have fun with the sewing, it’s certainly a challenge because everything is so small, but they are done so quickly by hand that it’s really productive.
Oh Mia she’s absolutely delightful and definitely looks like a Ruby to me! She really “sparkles” 🙂 Love her in all the outfits, but red is her colour.
Thank you 🙂 I agree, she looks nice in red. Her name is Toffee now. I do like Ruby, though!
Toffee, mmm so she’s good enough to eat! LOL! Joking aside, I like the name.
Thank you! Linda came up with the idea of Candy names. The next one will be named Milka 🙂
Oh I adore the repaint of her face. It looks fantastic. I have this very doll as well but she has her default face. Aren’t they such cute dolls? And they are pretty good at posing considering their height and thin arms and legs!! I was super surprised with mine. Your girl looks great in whatever she wears!
Thank you! They are very cute already without repaint, their face paint is so detailed! And you are right, they have really good balance.
I love her new face – so much better then the fabric make up! Great job! You made beautiful clothes for her. I like the straps – both blue and red – on her.
Toffie is a wonderful name for her.
Thank you :). Painting such huge eyes was surprisingly tricky, if you are used to repaint only small 1/6 eyes.
It’s magic for me. I was painting lips lately and I did it like 20 times before it was acceptable. xD
It was trial and error for me, too. I wiped her several times before I thought it looked right. The second one was easier.
She looks so cute!! I love her chubby face and the (almost) frown! Your repaint is gorgeous as always, and I like the red stripes and the overall the most!
Thank you! And I am glad to see commenting works for you again :).
