This is made for fun and those who remember the good old days of getting these for Christmas in the 1980's. This can be made and used to place under a small Xmas Tree for a little old school Diorama of an 1980's style Xmas. hehe This is part of a series of cubees i have made for Christmas.
I adjusted the Cubeecraft / Papercraft idea to make mini-scale version of this old Star Wars toy box of the old Death Star Playset. OK I know its not exactly the same as the 'Real' version. This is made just for fun to the good old days! Here is a photo of some of the other Mini Old toy boxes i have done to see what they would look like when put together [link]
And some more of these Old School Toy boxes can be found here [link]
Also there are some more of my Christmas Cubees (including Snowmen, Santa, The Grinch, Gingerbread men) can be found here [link]
This is a tutorial I drew up to help someone who had some questions for me regarding making custom Monster High dolls. Sorry for the fairly poor-quality photos. I don't have a proper digital camera right now and they were snapped on my cell phone, but big details aren't needed for this.
If you're a kid, please obtain permission from your parents before you start customizing a doll. I won't be held responsible if anyone gets in trouble with their folks.
Also, I'm completely freaking serious about the acetone. Don't play with that stuff. Wear gloves.
IMPORTANT ADDITION: *KPenDragon's passed on the information to me that predictably so the acetone is not only damaging to the BODIES of the dolls but it will eat through it the plastic. So unless you want a holey doll for your custom, if you need to remove body markings, like on a Frankie doll, sand it down and don't use a chemical to remove it.
Upcoming tutorials, featuring PROPER photos (yay camera shopping) will cover rehairing a doll, full body painting, body dying, and resculpting. Thanks for looking! I hope I've helped.
The needle-nosed pliers I use are specifically round tipped jewelry pliers made by Beadalon. They're a bit pricier than other brands but the quality shows. - Beadalon - I use these, specifically, part Part# 201E-003. I bought mine at A.C. Moore where they were selling for $12.
I got asked by a couple people about hair, so here's a short tutorial :3
I used paint tool SAI for the sketching and coloring.
I should add a disclaimer though:
How I draw correct is not THE way to draw hair, it is just a way that I found works for me. Another thing I should add is that this is a simplified thought process, I don't stick to this stringently and I must admit that I color hair differently every time depending on what i'm trying to do with it.

Works for fabrics & is Sewable, Works on Thermal plastics, Works on Foams, works on everything I could get my hands on
Ok this image is huge but this news is huge, download it or check it on dropbox: www.dropbox.com/s/2sk668jbx088… How to get mirrored fabrics and applications was a mystery to me and many a google search for many years... and I clued into it yesterday so please share share share anyone wanting to use metallics in costumery would benefit! It may have been done before but the internets could not help me find this ever! Then I remembered how much I like exotic cars. I wish you love and joy, your cosplay friend #KayPikeFashion Ever wake up and want to be shiny like a lamborghini? now you can! I was working on my Wonder Woman cosplay holding all this polished aluminum jewelry I just made thinking of my #cosplayproblems like " How do I get this metal onto my PVC bodysuit?""Metallic vinyl and pvc fabrics look gross IRL" "I need this metal but flexible for dancing" "I need something that behaves like a heat-transfer but will stretch around strange shapes and flex..." Then LIGHTBULB Car Vinyl
Question: Kay, Vinyl has been used in costuming for years why are you re-inventing the wheel?
Answer:Good question everyone! Fabric vinyls and PVC's made for sewing look pretty gross to me in comparison to metal accessories. I bought the best I could find and nothing compares to real metal until Auto body Vinyl Mirror Wrap
When I mix Chrome car vinyl in with metal jewelry I have spent hours upon hours polishing and grinding to perfection you can barley tell the difference
automotive vinyl is so glossy and reflective it makes me smile, you can take selfies in it!
Ive had trouble applying other fabric metallics and other metallic sticker type things in a decent way to make a good looking armor. Sewing fabric metallics can be a pain and chrome paint and sticker treatments are limited!
I could go on you must just try some
sew it flex it bend it stretch it glue it heat it cut it stick it... technologic
Heat Gun play around with your settings I found 150 to be fine
Vinyl Car Wrap Available at any exotic auto body shop, or you can order it online in any colour or finish you can imagine MULTI COLOURED HOLOGRAPHIC RAINBOWS! PATTERNS IT DOESN'T HAVE TO BE METALLIC! CARBON FIBER! SCALES! STRIPES! DOTS! YOU CAN EVEN GET PLACES TO PRINT AUTOMOTIVE WRAP IN WHATEVER YOU WANT
Somthing you want to apply it to plastic, clay, foam, thermoplastic, fabrics, I haven't found anything this doesn't work on yet
General Material Use Guide
1: When you cut your vinyl, give a good hefty “seam allowance” around your shape and cut small notches on inside corners
2: Heat up your gun to around 150
3: Peel the back off of your shape
4:Chrome side to table center your shape on the tacky backing
5: Heat to laminate them together
6:Heat and press excess material to the backside
LOOKS GREAT GOOD JOB! Sew if you want, if using a thermal go ahead and shape em together or shape your thermal first then laminate for smoother finish
Have loads of fun and let All cosplayers know about this Application!
