Customizing Isabel

The last time that I tried customizing a doll, it didn’t turn out so great.

From the front, (and verrrrrrry far away), Ash kind of looks okay:

sorry about the image quality!

But the back? I got so impatient, I actually cut the wig in half and left a horrible splotch of hair on his head. This is what he looks like without his wig on:

Creepy! ^

Add in the colorless, old vinyl of a well-used $50 Kirsten and half-tightened limbs, he’s kind of a mess. Which is why he barely ever appears on this blog.

So when I realized that Isabel definitely a) needed a new head that I didn’t want to pay $40 for, or b) needed a new wig, I was a little reluctant to try again. I didn’t want to further ruin one of my favorite dolls!

Isabel is in pretty good condition. Her legs are the right balance between loose and tight – mostly tight, with a little wiggle room for posing. Her skin is mostly clear – a few scratches here and there, but I’ve never really noticed them that much. The only major scuff marks are on her face, but you can’t see them unless you look super close.

But her one big problem? Her hair.

It’s crazy! The frizzy, haircut-survivor (if you can even call it a survivor) mop sticks out in every direction. You can barely even tell it’s blond anymore!

A few months later, when I opened up the Vanilla Cookie wig from Exquisite Doll Designs, there was no turning back. I was going to have to change Isabel’s wig, whether I liked it or not.

Untitled design (7)

This time, I did my research. After watching a few YouTube videos before putting on the wig, (I really liked the tips from this one and this one), I gathered my supplies:

And now for the part I’ve been dreading: Changing the wig. (Cue ominous music)

I carefully pried at the wig with a non-acetone nail polish remover-coated spoon, trying to lift it up. I started from the back of her head and moved onto the top. Those parts came off easily, but right above the ears was the toughest spot.

Tip: watch TV or read while you work with the wig to relieve boredom. (Ft. Jessie re-watch)

After hours (more like on-and-off days) of pulling and tugging, I finally got the wig off! The last step was to pull the new wig on by holding it at the back of her head and pulling the rest over.

3.png

Ta-da! I think the wig looks really cute on her, except for the fact that it makes her look very tan. I don’t mind that too much, though.

2.png

Isabel looks gorgeous with her new ‘do! I’m working on a fun AGSM about her hair called “Isabel’s Bad Hair Day.” It’ll be up on the blog tomorrow!

Thanks for reading this short little post! Have a blessed day!

What do you think of Isabel’s new wig? Should I glue it on so it’ll stay better, or should I not glue it so I can switch it out with other wigs for photo stories?

re; | an Easter mega-photostory / ashton’s introductory mega-photostory

So.

I was going to post a stop-motion called The Prank but I decided to post this instead. I decided that Easter is more important than April Fools and I might make a separate post later.

But anyways, on to the photo-story! If you have trouble reading it, the caption for the photo is above the photo. He is risen!

re;newed hope

Ashton’s POV

My hand trembles as I raise it to knock on the door. My whole life flashes before my eyes: The days of living on the streets, the days of begging for food and money, the days of wishing endlessly for parents, for a home.

IMG_2577

For someone to love me.

IMG_2576

That’s why I’m here. For a home of my own. A family of my own. A place to renew my hope, my spirit.

IMG_2580

I knock.

IMG_2581

The door opens.

IMG_2584

A girl stands before me. She seems to be around 13 or so, and has jet black hair with red highlights and bright brown eyes. “Hello! Who are you?”

IMG_2586

“Ashton. I’ve been adopted by Emmie and she told me that this is the place where the rest of her dolls live.”

IMG_2585

“Ah, yes, Ashton! I recognize that name. Come on in, come on in!” She gestures welcoming-ly towards the inside of the house. I follow.

IMG_2588

“Hey, who’s that?” A brown-haired boy about my age walks over to me and the girl. “The new kid?”

IMG_2589

“The new kid has a name. That name, is Ashton…”

IMG_2590

“Um, I don’t really have a last name. That I know of.”

IMG_2591

“Oh.” She looks at me awkwardly. “Um, this is just Ashton.”

IMG_2594

“Well, hey Just Ashton.” Then, with a smirk, the boy walks away.

IMG_2593

“Who was that?” I ask the girl.

IMG_2595

“That,” she replies, “is Logan. Your new roommate.”

IMG_2600

I inwardly groan, because I can tell that Logan is the kind of boy who likes to pull practical jokes–and it doesn’t help that today is April Fools Day.

IMG_2597

 

“Hi!!YoumustbeAshtonIcan’tbeleiveyou’rehere!EmmiesaidyouwerecomingtodayandIamsohappyyouarehere!!Heylemmegiveyouatourofthehouserealquickthisisthebathroom,thelivingroom, thebedrooms,andyeahnicetomeetyouI’mMaryellen!!” A redheaded girl practically knocks me over with her hug.

IMG_2598

 

“Um, hi…?” I reply awkwardly.

IMG_2599

“Anyways,” the girl rolls her eyes at Maryellen, “It’s time to eat!”

IMG_2601

re;connected with a family

Ashton’s POV

All of the dolls sit down at the table.

IMG_2602

“Why are we having a feast today? Is April Fools’ day really special around here or something??” I whisper to the girl.

IMG_2603

“Uh, no.” The girl – whose name I recently learned is Z – says, “It’s Easter, silly goose!”

IMG_2605

“Oh, right! Do y’all do egg hunts here?”

IMG_2606

“We do, but Easter is way beyond that.”

IMG_2608

“What does that mean?”

IMG_2611

“Shhh, guys, it’s time to pray!” A blue-eyed girl announces. All the dolls join hands. I’m not sure what I’m supposed to do, but I just follow Z’s lead and join hands with her and Maryellen.

IMG_2612

“We thank You for your goodness, your mercy, your faithfulness to us. I pray that You will bless this meal and nourish it into our bodies. And thank You for all that You did for us today many years ago–You took the punishment of our sin so we wouldn’t have to die for our mistakes. And thank You for all of the wonderful blessings You’ve given this family. Amen.”

IMG_2611

The rest of the dolls echo, “Amen.”

IMG_2613

I begin to eat, wondering about the prayer that was just said. Who is this You they are talking about? What punishment?

IMG_2609

re;born

Ashton’s POV

“Hey, you,” I tap on the blond girl’s shoulder.

IMG_2614

“My name is Alexandra or Lexie for short, but how can I help you?”

IMG_2617

“About the prayer at dinner,” I begin, “what did it mean?”

IMG_2618

“Here, sit down.” She says. “Well, do you know about God?”

IMG_2620

“Yes, I’ve heard of the Christian religion. But I’ve never really been aware of what you guys believe until now.”

IMG_2623

“Well, as a Christian, I believe that God sent down His one and only Son, Jesus, so that whoever believes in Him shall not perish, but have eternal life with Him in Heaven.” (John 3:16)

IMG_2627

“How did this Jesus let believers go to Heaven?”

IMG_2626

“He died. On a cross. For our sin. He drank the cup of God’s wrath upon all sinners so we wouldn’t have to drink from it. Instead, we get to drink from the cup of God’s forgiveness. But three days later, He rose from the grave!! Jesus Christ conquered death that day.”

IMG_2629

“That’s crazy! want to go to Heaven. want to lead a life that honors Him. But how?”

IMG_2636

“Well, let’s follow the ABCs to becoming a Christian. First, A- admit to God that you’re a sinner, and repent.”

IMG_2633

“I am a sinner,” I cry aloud. It feels strange – yet in a weird way, comforting – to be talking to something that I can’t see.

IMG_2619

“Great! Now you just have to B, believe that Jesus is the Son of God and He died for you.”

IMG_2631

“I believe,” I reply quietly.

IMG_2630

“Again?”

IMG_2620

“I believe!” I shout loudly.

IMG_2632

“Lastly, for C – confess your faith in Jesus Christ as your Savior and LORD.”

IMG_2634

“I have faith that Jesus Christ is my Savior and LORD!”

IMG_2636

She hugs me as she says a prayer of salvation over me: “Dear Lord, I pray that you will help Ashton to lead a life that honors you. Help him to understand how much you sacrificed for us. Thank you for all that you’ve done for us.”

IMG_2637

“Amen,” we say together.

IMG_2631

And from that day on, I am a new person. I have been reborn through Jesus and all the amazing things that He’s done for me.

IMG_2638

“For all have sinned and fallen short of the glory of God.” – Romans 3:23

“You see, at just the right time, when we were still powerless, Christ died for the ungodly. 7 Very rarely will anyone die for a righteous person, though for a good person someone might possibly dare to die. 8 But God demonstrates his own love for us in this: While we were still sinners, Christ died for us. 9 Since we have now been justified by his blood, how much more shall we be saved from God’s wrath through him! 10 For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!” -Romans 5:6-10

Mini Misadventures #1: The Canine Catastrophe

Hello, loyal marshmallows!

So first of all, if you are reading this post, high five, you! You are the awesomest person in the whole world! Here’s some marshmallows.

Second of all, I wanted to give a huge shoutout to Madison @ Delightful World of Dolls! Her post inspired me to write this photo story!

So let’s get on with the photo story, shall we?

.

IMG_1361.JPG

“I’m bored,” Izzy whined. “There’s never anything to do here.”

“I like doing nothing,” Raina pushed a blue lock of hair behind her ear. “It’s very quiet. I can just sit and think deeply about things.”

As Raina was talking, she noticed that Izzy wasn’t paying attention and looked up.

IMG_1362.JPG

“Hello down there!”

“Ahh!” Raina was shocked. “Get down from there!” You could really hurt yourself!”

“You’re no fun!” Izzy pouted. “Come up here!”

IMG_1363.JPG

“I don’t want to! I’m afraid of heights!”

“Oh, come on, scaredy-cat!”

IMG_1365.JPG

“Fine.”

IMG_1366.JPG

“Wait a sec, how do we get down?”

“YOU DON’T KNOW HOW TO GET US DOWN??” Raina shrieked. Izzy just looked at her.

“There’s only one way.”

IMG_1368.JPG

Climbing to the edge of the wood, Izzy took a deep breath and pushed her little legs up.

IMG_1370.JPG

And she went flying! The thrill of it purged through her body as she fell, down, down, the wind rushing against her. The adrenaline was overwhelming.

IMG_1371.JPG

She landed on the grass with a fall, luckily breaking her fall. She lay there for a moment, soaking the moment in. She was the first mini doll to brave such a height, such a fall… and for it to be a free fall, she almost–

IMG_1373.JPG

With a scream and an “Oof!” Raina landed on the grass beside her, interrupting her daydream. Slightly annoyed, Izzy repositioned herself.

IMG_1377.JPG

Little did they know what lay in their future.

IMG_1378.JPG

Hearing a small bark, Izzy jumped. She turned around…and screamed!

IMG_1380.JPG

The minis jumped up and ran! Screaming, they pumped their legs as fast as they could.

But just when they thought they had lost the bloodthirsty pup…

IMG_1383.JPG

…Izzy tumbled in to a ditch!

IMG_1385.JPG
Oh, umm, sorry for the uh, dog poop that seems to have photobombed…XD

“I’m gonna die!!!!” Izzy screamed. “I DON’T WANNA DIE IN A DITCH!”

IMG_1386.JPG

Ooof! Raina tumbled in after her.

IMG_1388.JPG

But just as things had “CERTAIN DEATH” in capital letters written all over the situation…

Izzy sprang up from the ditch, hoisted her leg over the dog, and then…

IMG_1390.JPG

At least mini-doll-hungry dogs came with a ride home.

❤ Most writerly,

Emmie

Customizing Mini Sam + A Change Of Nickname

Why hello everbody! Remember in this post when I announced that I was going to purchase and customize mini Molly, but never got around to it? Well, I didn’t notice what I had right in front of me! So I customized Sam!


^I put a tissue around her body to protect her while I washed her hair.


Then I combed it out.


And gave her little freckles! But boy, did I freak out when I cut of her bangs!


So, instead of everyone calling me Phoenix, short for EmeraldPhoenix, I thought I would go by Emmie!(Comes from EMeraldPhoenix)  

So without further adue,
