This is Sugarplum, a little sweetie I made for my good friend Amanda Nicholson as a surprise gift!
I’m finally getting around to doing this post. I meant to do it ages ago but first I had to wait until my friend received her surprise dolly, then I got busy with other stuff and just didn’t find time to blog about the dolly. THEN I forgot entirely. But today I was reminded and here we go!
This is Sugarplum! As I stated, she was a surprise gift a friend who just LOVES the dollies in the Blythe world but just didn’t have the time to start the hobby. So I sent her a doll and now she is happily on her journey into Blythe!
Sugarplum’s face is entirely customized but I left her original hair and body.. I love her teeny frame!
Her customizations include: Nose, philtrum and mouth carved. Face painted and sealed. Eyelids painted and sparkled in my signature fashion and new, fluffy lashes! I think I signed her too. I normally forget to do that with my dolls but when I do remember it’s on the back of the head.
I normally put my dolls on a fully poseable body and do an entire new reroot, but as this was a surprise gift and I really wanted to get it to the recipient I chose to keep her on her little rubbery body. It does cost a lot of money and time for the bodies and reroots too as I always work with alpaca or mohair.
This is a ‘First Doll’ for my friend and I am happy to say that she is just smitten with her and that makes me SOO happy!! I am so pleased that she could join in our little world and share the pleasures of dolls and Blythe!!
