About Cherry.

Cherry is an original, new Cherry Beach Sunset Blythe by Takara.

She is photographed in various clothes, but I thought it would be really cool if she came in her original box and with all her goodies (:

So she will arrive with everything you see on the photo right below, and perhaps some surprise.

Clothes from photos are not included.

This is how she arrives... but of course..custom ^______^

Custom painted cherry eyelids.. with a bit of golden sparkle…

and a bit more about her… (:

Due to her really tan color, she comes on her original takara tan body.

Her original makeup was removed and I carved new mouth and nose shape and corrected the eye sockets to make them perfect.

She has my new realistic skin painting, with lots and lots of very delicate freckles – some of them shimmering gold.

Her lips have delicate lines and are this amazing natural color that you so often can see on olive-skin people…

Cherry has my trademark “cookie” eyeliner, and new, thick and soft eyelashes.

Fortune Teller Machine DIY assembly Tutorial

Hi!

I promised a tutorial for those that own my DIY Fortune Teller Machine paper kit from “Toys For Dolls” series… and finally here it is!

So have fun, and even if it’s not perfect, Good Job! Perfect is overrated (;

*

Fortuna in

*

ok, let’s begin!

Your paper kit looks like that photo 1 just below…

So first you need to do is to carefully cut out all the parts – like on photo 2

*

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

*

CUTTING

 (3) To cut out straight sides really quickly, you can use a ruler and a very sharp cutting knife.. be sure to press the ruler to the surface so that nothing moves while you cut.

(4) Use sharp scissors to cut out curvy lines.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

Cutting out internal shapes is a bit more challenging. For those good with x-acto knife – you can use it to cut the whole shape at once.

(5) But if you preffer scissors, punch a hole in the middle of the area that is to be removed.

(6) Make it bigger – it will allow you to use the scissors to cut the shape from inside.

(7) be sure to cut free the “top” on which the fortuna doll will be glued onto.

*

FOLDING

(8) Best tools for folding are those thin blunt ones… like.. pen that is no longer working.. or even scissors with blunt tip.

(9) So turn the front of the Fortuneteller Box around and, using the ruler and one of those tools, push it to the surface and trace a line.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

(10) Gently fold the sides and the parts with sign “glue” so that they are bent outside to create box shape.

(11) on the back part, trace the lines on the front of the design and fold the edges to the inside.

*

(12) the “top” folds inside but the part that holds it to the back of the “machine” folds outside.

GLUE

Be sure to use a strong, fast drying glue. I like UHU.

(13 -14) Glue the bottom part of the back to the inside of the bottom part of the front. Be sure to hold glued parts until the connection holds really well.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

(15) now connect the back of the box with the front – glued parts need to go inside as on the photo – hold for a while.

(16) Connect the rest of the parts

*

the TOP

This one is a bit tricky… because you need to be careful to not to smudge the glue when you fold this part.

Apply glue on the thin strip that touches the back, and push it to the back of the machine and hold for 20 seconds until it’s dry.

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

(20) finish the box with attaching the FORTUNA banner.

*

 FORTUNETELLER <:

(21) prepare the shape and trace the front lines with a round tip tool & a ruler (22)

(23) Fold it, put a small amount of glue on the inside end of the little square at the bottom, and glue it so that is  more or less 90% – hold it for 20 seconds.

Now put a bit of glue at the bottom of the figure and press it to the “top” in our Fortune Teller Machine..

OLYMPUS DIGITAL CAMERA

*

I hope you enjoyed it!

I am aware that this is my first folding kit… for sure it’s not perfect but I hope that, with your help, next ones will be better & easier to assemble.

If something is unclear, please leave a comment and I will try to explain it (:

xo!

Her custom, unique pastel faceup is sealed with MSC, lips are glossed.

She has three pairs of custom eyechips, including pink pair from  Liquiriziadolly, and one pair of warm brown ones.

Castles in the clouds….

*

For Someone to guard your Castles in the Clouds…

one has to be lighter than air…

And one has to be alone, but never lonely,

as your castles are filled with feathery dreams….

Today we had an eclipse, and I’m sure a lot of you gazed into the sky…

so… actually… there couldn’t  be a better moment for Cloud’s debut…

After all, she is a creature of heavenly planes.

May I present to you…

About Cloud..

She has custom face carving and custom faceup done mostly with pastels and sealed with MSC.

Her base doll is RBL+ and she has Pure Neemo Flection body.

Her eyes have my trademark “cookie” eyeliner, new eye lashes, and four pairs of special eye chips –  three hand painted & one milky blue.

Silver freckles add a delicate sparkle….

and…. Cloud has lovely, luxurious alpaca re-root, done by amazing Patty Paris

And those hair… it’s the sweetest shade of pastel blue, going smoothly into light creams, pinks & minty greens…

Cloud comes dressed in cloudy dress and cloudy hair piece.

The  Overalls it’s actually a protective mesh outfit from CoolCat…. but after watching “The Skin We Live In”  it took on a new meaning.

I added a fluffy tulle cloud as a skirt – it’s sewn onto the overalls.

There is no stand, but there is a wooden box… and there is HER of course…

She’s a Dal doll from Pullip family, customized by me of course.

I changed her eye shape, carved her mouth and nose, and gave her entirely new faceup, sealed with MSC.

She has new eye lashes and custom painted eye-chips (one pair – does not change as with Blythe)

She has her original body that is much more articulated than for example Blythe body.

hmm… about colors… you can see they can change depending on the light of the day, but If I could describe it, she has the cotton candy pink-peachy tones, with a plum violets as accents.

*

Praline comes with:

*cookie

*lovely mohair  wig (removable) in pale pink

*two dark flower hair clips – handmade by me

I never hosted a Doll Giveaway before….. and I think It’s about time… to say “thank you” for all your <3 and support… I so appreciate it!

So please read rules carefully and don’t make mistakes when tagging, because I won’t be able to find your entry!

Meet Sweet Noel!

She will be waiting here on my shelf for her fate to be decided….. <3

And now, about Contest.

Contest is for Facebook, Flickr, Instagram & Tumblr, and I did so to give some degree of  fairness to everyone. Most contests on those websites is based on re-posting… so I thought it will be best to make it the same for all of them. Each page has slightly different instructions, and you will find them on Noel’s photo on each of those websites.

Mostly it’s about sharing in public mode (so I can find it), naming @KarolinFelix, tagging #KarolinFelixGiveawayDoll (exactly like that) &  following me (:

Sharing for example on Facebook, gives 1 entry…. sharing on all four, will give 4 entries. But multiple re-posts on one website will still count as 1.

All entries will go into one hat/bowl, and on 18of January, with my eyes closed, I will pick one strip of paper with a name…..

Hmm.. I think that’s it!

Good luck! ^_____^

eye chips by AlmondDoll

Faceup, hair, eyes, body

Goldilocks has unique face carving… because it’s just different each time and that’s why each custom doll is so special & unrepeatable…

Goldilocks has amazing, Greta Garbo style golden lustrous hair…. this is a factory scalp but it’s so gorgeous…. old Hollywood glamour….

And I made a delicate but sweet faceup to fit that glamour…

Sweet full red lips… golden glow to the skin… delicate blonde eyebrows….

(note – scalp has a small existing gap on the front)

*

Goldilocks has four pairs of unique, custom painted eye chips that reflect light and look like vintage glass teddy eyes….

That amazing copper – green pair above was made by AlmondDoll and you can find such eyes here.

One pale blue side pair and one silvery green front pair is painted by me.

But there is also one special golden pair by Liquiriziadolly, and if you want to see more of her custom eye chips, visit here.

Thank you for looking!
