I wanted to give my BJDs stylish new looks for Winter 2015. I'm torn between BoHo and classy looks - so why not do both?
I started with Griffin, my Soom Ender/Iplehouse SID hybrid. I had this exact image in my mind as soon as he got his new blue eyes (actually, default Iplehouse acrylics, but they look marvellous in him).
I wanted his photo to look like something from a fashion magazine spread. I'm pretty pleased with how it turned out. The coat and sweater are by Iplehouse, and the pretty blue variegated scarf was knitted by me to complement his eyes. The little posy is ofvintage glass flower beads from the Czech Republic. I love Etsy!
This "photo-shopping" business (I actually use Paint.NET) is not easy to do with hair. I must see if I can find some tutorials to do it better/more easily.
Based in New Zealand, I've been a collector of ball-jointed dolls since 2011.
