As my Pullip/Obitsu hybrid tutorial was so appreciated I decided to publish this other one on Deviantart too..
I customized this doll as I loved the head but the original body could only move the arms. The Azone Picco Neemo body is very posable, is in a similar size of the original body but it's only available in natural skin colors...not in alien ones! >_< Many people asked me how I managed to color my picconeemo body so here there are the work in progress pictures I took.
1. The body as I bought it, next to the Novi Star doll original body. Before painting it I cleaned it with alchool and grease solvent, then didn't touch it any more with my fingers. I sprayed it with Tamiya color flat clear TS-80 (MSC base should work too). 2. I painted it with white acrylic paint base I bought in a miniatures shop. 3. I mixed different acrylic paints to obtain a similar color to the doll's face. As Novi Star dolls have a pearled skin try to use pearled white or other glittery acrilyc colors, if you find them. Top right are shown all the colors I used to obtain that green. 4. Second layer (I sprayed clear Tamiya color between the two). Some of the brushstrokes were still visible, if I'll paint another body I think I'll apply 3 thinner layers instead of 2 thick ones... 5. Sprayed with 3 or 4 layers of Tamiya Color Pearl Clear TS-65 to give it a glossy effect, similar to the face.
Keep in mind that: -Picco Neemo body is made by Azone and is meant for adult collectors and not for children. If you don't like the big hands and feet, this body is available with normal proportions too. - If you pose the doll the paint on the ball joints is going to come off. Paint on the rest of the body in mine is still there even if I dress the doll and play with it. Anyhow be careful not to scratch it away. - The head is very easy to pop off the Novi Star Body and it fits the Picconeemo neck peg. BUT this one has to be glued on the body before putting the head on or the peg is going to fall inside the head and you're not going to take it out unless you open the head. >_<
If you make your own hybrid doll using this tutorial I'd be happy to see pics! *_* You can also link to this tutorial if you want.

So my friend asked me to take a picture of my fandom things and show him, so I decided to post it here. It's really a mixture of a bunch of things/fandoms. It includes Harry Potter, Doctor Who, Minecraft, The Hunger Games, and The Mortal Instruments. So here are the things, though I can't list them in order on the picture: Two Plushie Daleks, white small one and red big one Plushie Adipose Plushie Light Up TARDIS Bigger, plastic light up TARDIS with sound affects Smaller plastic light up TARDIS Small TARDIS (used to be the top of a pen, before it broke) Doctor Who post-it notes including four different Daleks, the TARDIS, and The Doctor Rune Tattoos Dumbledore Chocolate Frog card Cyberman Bust Hedwig in a cage Lego Doctors 1-11 with Sonic Screwdrivers Plushie Enderman Mini Peeta figure Harry Potter Quidditch snowglobe Rue figure Official Harry Potter quill and ink.

So, that's it for now. I couldn't picture ALL my fandom items, so I may do another picture later. I wanted to do this, because I got a new awesome camcorder for Christmas, and that's what I used to take the picture.
First Faceup Stories in 2013! This time I feature a very special sculpt made by my client Weslie. This is Erja a rabbit woman inspired by the Viera race (Fran) from Final Fantasy XII Youtube video > [link]

This pattern is designed for an 8" diameter head (SD Doll size) but can be adjusted. I use wool fabric and a stiffener like buckram to make my hats. I would advise making a prototype hat out of stiff fabric and adjusting the pattern for your dolls head (with a wig on it.)
