My life seems to have been dolls dolls dolls for the last few months. But the good news is I’ve finally finished the last 3 custom dolls so I can now maybe do something else with my spare time!
And since they’re now finished and will soon be on their way to the other side of the world, I can share them!
First up is another Amy Winehouse. This time made using a second hand barbie doll. You can see my first Amy doll here.
In order to do this Amy I began by removing all the (blonde) hair from the doll. I wanted to try using felt for her incredible hairdo so I used a combination of glue and the rooting tool to attach Amy’s beehive and messy hair.
Then, of course, I had to give her a face…
No Amy is complete without tattoos, and this girl is no exception. She has all the tatts, even the ones you can’t see under her funky 1960’s style shorts/dress.
I couldn’t find black boots so I painted a pair of silver boots and gave her a black belt to tie in the outfit.
The outfit Amy’s wearing is actually an original Barbie outfit from my collection of clothes and I chose it cause it really seemed to suit her style.
I’m quite pleased with how the hair turned out.
… next I’m going to try using felted wool to make Captain Jack Sparrow!
