Oof, I don’t love this stage, where they look all surprised and scary (in a bad way). Laguna’s hair wasn’t bad, I’ve heard some have bad hair, but I made it look really horrible with all the studio related manhandling. She had to have a little trip to the salon to help out those curls. Even after her hair isn’t as pretty has Marley’s, which I adore, but silky hair like that won’t hold a curl well so it is what it is for a reason.
I’m not sure why I find customizing Monster High dolls to be so stressful, but I really do. I could not put her down until she was finished, I was restless and grouchy, I had to finish this custom, it was all I could think about. You may have noticed in this photo that the arms are the skull girl arms. I thought the custom kits would swap parts easily but they don’t, I had to file the connector plugs down a bit so they would snap into place. It was definitely worth it though, I love the end result.
I have salon photos to post and then I’ll put up her final photos, at the moment I’m just adjusting the colors because they came out – perhaps not surprisingly – very blue. Ha!
