Taffee Lavender - Not
I got some week back a few very nice packets home ^-^ My tans arrived! Taffee won the race by a few days, so I'll post about her first.
Oh, the sight of a Bygg never gets old... The R.Head looks so spunky blank, but since I already have Meringue as the household spunky princess, I had something else in mind for Taffee. I had had in mind that she'd wear all-white, but that was quickly tossed as I put these spare clothes on her as well as this impulse wig from Frappzilla. The purple looks so damn good on tan! It even resolved my naming issues I had with her, and now her full name is Taffee Lavender Cupcake!
I actually took progress photos of her face-up this time. I wanted to try something a bit new with her lips, accenting the outer rim instead of the usual puckered-rose-look I go for. I also went with freckles, since I don't have a freckled doll yet. So far, it all looked quite ok.

I also wished to give Taffee some golden accents to her face, and painted this leafy-butterflyish-thingy on the corner of one eye. This actually looks kinda cool and I want to do a better version on her next face-up (which I will be doing shortly, you'll see why).
I'll redo this once I finish one very interesting commission I got here. I'll downplay it a lot, making lips and eyes more natural. I'll keep the gold and maybe even give some golden sparkles to her instead/on top of her freckles. I might use a darker eyeshadow though, since I see this vast canvas that is her upper lids (I can see the appeal of romantic eyes as a face-upper).
Next up, the dolls that did turn out just as I wanted! Stay tuned! (Like, a few hours from now, since I now have window of opportunity to go through all the pics I've taken lately...)
