walking dead dolls

I know I’ve shared a couple of my Walking Dead doll remakes, but I found I had this post in my drafts folder and it includes one previously unshared doll: Sasha.

This is Sasha in the show:

And this is my Sasha, complete with a high powered rifle with moving parts.

Remaking Sasha included a total repaint of her face and a new hair style. I made her singlet top and she wears Bratz jeans. I bought her gun on ebay as I’ve bought various other accessories at times when I can’t make them myself. I already have a crossbow to make Daryl… I just have to get there.

Let’s revisit the other girls… Firstly my all time favourite: Michonne. This is how she began, a very messy Bratz girl I bought in an op shop. That’s one thing I miss here (among other things…) No op shops. I’ve never seen dolls I can remake for sale anywhere for instance. I’m glad I brought a ton with me! When I eventually get around to re-making some again.

This is Michonne on the show…

And this is how my interpretation, complete with a katana and a chain to hold her pet walkind dead.

In Michonne’s case I had to do a total overhaul. I had to remove her hair and make dredlocks by wet felting a combination of wools. I made her top, including a leather vest plus a studded belt. Her jeans are original Bratz jeans as they’re just too hard to make.

Last but not least, Carol. This is Carol on the show:

This is what the doll looked like before I started. A typical overdone Bratz doll with wild hair.

And this is the finished Carol, complete with a gun, a military warrier knife and bag.

In Carol’s case I did a repaint of the face, gave her a haircut and coloured her hair grey. I made all her clothes and made a pair of Bratz sandals into boots by painting and adding laces.

I miss remaking dolls. Its one of the things I planned to work on in winter but never got around to it for two winters in a row. This winter I was working on sculptures and last winter who remembers… All I know is that time never seems to be enough.

And I get bouts of laziness and inspiration blocks.

I should really be working on things like this constantly but instead I spend hours doing all sorts of things instead of creating. I really work best when I have a ton of projects going at once cause then I can pick what I want to work on at any given time. Space becomes an issue in a 2 room flat.

Last night I was up till 12.30 working on one of my new (old) cabinets. I didn’t even realise what time it was till I saw it was pitch black outside.

I love it when I’m in the zone like that.

  1. I’m not a fan of the show, but by giving me reference pictures of the characters, I can tell that you are doing a terrific job at transforming the Brat dolls.

    My creating has been eclipsed by Depression, with a big fat D. I’m slowly starting to at least think about going into my studio to make something out of paper. My father-in-law requested some generic cards, so that might be an easy place to start. Also, I just need to get off and away from the computer rather than scroll my life away!

    • Good luck. I know the capital D word. Luckily I’m ok now and the more I do the better I feel. Its when you let it drag you down and stop creating that it can get a strong hold and then you can’t shake it easily. Hope you get back in the groove soon.
