Stock box~ Welcome to Dollightful Hold on, you’re thinking, isn’t that the finished doll for this episode right there? Yes, it is I’m afraid I have disappointing news Through some unfortunate events that I’d rather not recount for the sick of my blood pressure Every single part of this dolls process got deleted… gone unrecoverable The only parts we have are her final photoshoot so we can at least take a look at that Her name is Iggy. It sounds like it “이끼” which is the Korean word for moss. Cute, right? First off, she was a Monster High Clawdeen Wolf doll I cut the ears off and repositioned them to the sides of her head because I thought they looked cuter and shy I wanted this character to look a little shy, like a fairy that hides in the woods Her hair is rooted acrylic yarn unraveled the standard three strands into single strands before plugging the head I mixed three slightly different shades of green together to get a subtle variant of color to her hair I think that makes it look more realistic and mossy Her clothing is a very simple slip pattern which I dressed up with plenty of silk plants. I wanted her entire character to look like she’s part of the forest itself as if plants are growing off the dress and her shoes The ferns on top I strung together with embroidery thread and it’s a separate piece from the dress that ties around the neck like some king of collar The shoes were Ever After High Ashlynn Ella’s shoes, which I repainted and dressed up with fo moss and plants There were so many parts of this doll I was excited to show you and tell you about like the wings for example So here’s my new plan The forest spirit theme is one with plenty of potential and I have a lot of unused ideas after making Iggy anyway So Iggy is going to get a sister It will be a new design to make it fun for me, but I’ll use similar techniques This month is pretty busy. So it’s likely the next stock box video won’t be out until July I hate to make you wait, but thanks for understanding And expect a lot of exciting dolls out for June. I won’t say too much but there’s much collaborating going on between youtubers this month So it’s going to be great Here’s some of the sketches I came up with when designing Iggy. I was inspired by @Walkercolors DNA African doll And also by @skerlosities on Instagram for the poofy yarn hair look And I was heavily inspired by @Candy’s Dolls for her flower design face up Lots of things changed from sketches to final doll. So there are ideas I would love to use on the next doll I really wanted to make the mushroom hat for example, but a Iggy’s afro hair was just too cute to mush down under a hat And that’s all I’ve got for you. I’ll make another forest spirit So no vote this time although feel free to leave more ideas and suggestions about another forest doll in the comments below Iggy would sure appreciate it If you gave that like button a “Boop” and become a subscriber for more doll customizing I’ll see you next time guys Thanks for watching. Stay artsy.
