WIP – Dolls

I have been doing so many things for the past three weeks but I am going to start by posting about a project I started months ago.

It began when  I went on a shopping spree, I bought a lot of 80’s Strawberry Shortcake dolls, I came across some dolls from Bandai who for some reason lost their hair, they were bold and without clothes.

My idea was to repaint those without hair; I have seen so many re-painted dolls and they look beautiful but soon I came across with problems, for example what type of primer, sealer, paints or pencils to use.  But the biggest setback/problem was that I remembered that I can’t paint a pair of eyes, the first eye always a piece of cake the second one never,  the second eye will always look wonky; that is why I decided to go with the easy way and used safety eyes.  But to be honest it is hard to poke a hole in the little doll’s face, both physically and emotionally.

The dresses, shoes, and wig cap are crocheted and the hair is yarn.

About foolishlife

Words cannot describe what we are. We are a little bit complicated to explain. All we can say about ourselves is that we live a foolish life. EkkE-Mekka, we are sister and Ed is our little nephew. The three of us are always finding new ways to pass the time. We cosplay, write, sew, draw, do crafts, chase the ice cream man and a whole lot of other things. So, we hope you enjoy reading about our silly adventures.
