Last night I took my Mysterious New Blythe Clone Lotus Blossom and did some serious customs on her. By serious I mean more than just changing eye chips and MSCing. (Followers: I'm going to allow Sarah to properly introduce these new clones, but the link above takes you to a Flickr group we formed in order to find out more information about them.)
Here she is when she first arrived.
A few days ago I removed the eye makeup from around her faceplate.
Last night I scalped her. Her scalp and dome are very similar to an RBL - they're apparently the same size, but the extra RBL dome I have lying around didn't fit with her faceplate.
She had really nice, thick hair but the cut was driving me crazy. I've been wanting to do a reroot for a while, so I decided to chop it all off! Look at those crazy spaces - are Blythe scalps like this? Can I make my own holes? I'd rather her not have bald spots.
Then I decided to carve! There's really not any tutorials online, but I did find the below video. I used a Xacto knife and a sanding sponge. I also sanded down her nose a bit and thinned it, which I might have to work on more. I think her mouth is good though, I was aiming for a smile. I also don't want to over carve her, and I really don't know what I'm doing. I also don't know how much the paint will have an impact.
