Tuesday Extreme's Extreme Makeover

Here, her faceup is complete. I'm just awaiting eyechips and will be doing a reroot for her in long black saran, and she'll be all ready to go home. I haven't had a chance to take any daytime shots, so please excuse the lamp glare, but here's an idea of what she looks like now:

Customizations on an Adorable Aubrey

The second Blythe I customized and adopted out was much less drastic than the first, but I am very happy with how she turned out! I switched her from a licca back to her takara body because it felt more glamorous, which went with her new look.
Her eyelids took forever and a few tries, but I'm very happy with how they finally turned out. I also gave her sleep eyes, switched out eyechips, slightly boggled her, sandmatted around her stock eyeshadow and lips and sandmatted off her blush--it's really rare that I like the girls blushy.
She is also happily living with her new family and getting lots of attention from her new mom and sister :)

My first custom girl

My first custom girl was an amazing challenge, and very rewarding. I purchased her, took her apart, and learned from various online tutorials how to safely make her over completely. I was very fortunate that when I put her up for adoption in January, she was adopted by the wonderful and talented Gina Garan, (check out her website at http://www.thisisblythe.com)and given an exciting and loving home. Here are her before and after shots:

I know people steer clear of customizing ADG girls, and they are difficult, but also very exciting to work with. Right now, I have 2 other ADG customs in the works!
