Meet Heather

The Neemos have all been pretty bummed because I got sick again and have missed posting a few of their entries that we had planned that were a bit more story based.

There is a tutorial coming up (possibly the world's most useless tutorial? LOL) and a post showcasing a new handmade product I found on etsy that I think Pure Neemo owners and Fashion Doll owners alike might enjoy.

All of those got pushed aside by illness, though, and the Neemos are mighty depressed.
So they wanted you to meet the sicky who is holding them back... to let you know that it's me, not them.

So without further ado, I introduce myself, Heather:


Oh... eh, heh heh heh... did I forget to mention that this is the Pure Neemo sized version of me?
According to the people who would know (boyfriend, coworkers, etc), it's me in Neemo form.
Yes, I know... how do I stand with such a huge head?
I often ask myself the same question.

Anyhow, this is a blank Obitsu 21cm WS head that I rooted with mohair and applied eye decals to that I purchased from www.junkyspot.com. The body is the 21cm Obitsu WS body... then I painted on the mouth and freckles, blushed her cheeks and pierced her ears.

VIOLA! Mini-me!!

    1. They are, but you have to spray seal them too... but they're really cheap for a whole sheet of them from junkyspot

  5. Heather, you are so cute!

    Loved the way you did the hair and the face. If you can share some tutorials about making a custom girl, I would love it!

    1. I can give you a quick one now:

      I used this to root the hair:
      http://dollmore.net/shop/step1.php?number=7497

      I used these eye decals (then just followed the simple directions that come in the package with them):

      I used these pastels to blush the cheeks:

      I used this paint to paint the mouth (as for a brush, just go to the craft store and choose one that's for acrylic or watercolor that is VERY fine):
      http://www.volksusa.com/matlpa0065.html

      I used this spray to seal the eyes, mouth and blush:
      http://www.volksusa.com/zmfinishspray.html

      I ordered this head: 21HD-F01W Plain Head [White Skintone]
      From here: http://junkyspot.com/23head.html

      And this body: 21cm Obitsu Female Child Doll White
      From here: http://junkyspot.com/obitsu23.html

      The hair itself was an old, SD sized mohair wig I had... but here is a GREAT starter to rooting tutorials at The Manor, where Tabby also tells you great places to buy hair:
