Tamica and Bree: Newest Repaint Versions!

Hi guys!

I believe I have not given a proper introduction the latest repaints I made, thus this post. I'm adding three or rather I'm converting three of my girls into these OOAK gems and I am so excited to share them with you today. I cannot promise to repaint like crazy in the next few weeks, but I am dedicating some time to repaint at least one doll a week.

Here they are and I hope they will inspire you to customize your dolls, too, because it really makes each one of them much more special. Enjoy the photos...


First up, Tamica version 2.0...


I think she's perfect in an all-white ensemble... don't you think?


A bit closer...

From a recent photo shoot...


Next up, Bree version 2.0...


With her purple highlights, I decided to make her into my little edgy rockstar ;)


Formerly Raquelle and with a pinkish tone in her skin, she's currently not feeling this yellow-undertoned MTM bod I loaned her....
Hired recently to model a few slip dresses...


and the most recent repaint, Tamica Version 3.0...

I decided not to reroot her with yarn because I got her with such cared for hair. I just cut it shorter to give her a modern gal look ;)

Yay, I'm learning to make more realistic eyes this time!

So excited to have this one model my next creation!

That's it for now, dearies. I'll go add these lovelies in my Doll Customization page. Chat with you again next time.

xoxo,
shasha

    2. You're welcome, Debbie.. but she's a bit darker than the body. Still not much difference ;)

  2. I love all 3, but my favorite is Tamica 3.0! I love her hair and her new face! I wish I could do this, but alas, I do not have that kind of talent! Thanks for sharing these beauties with us!

    1. Oh, thanks, Phyllis! Tamica 3.0 definitely is the sum of all the practise I'd done since my first repaint. And yes, it's practice that makes up talent. I thought too for a long time that I was someone special, with things I can do better than others, but I understand now that, it's because of long hours of practice and dedication that have made acquire these skills. It's special in a way, but everyone can do it, just with a little bit more of time and passion. 😉❤😉

  3. Tameka 3.0 is my very favorite! I love the hair on the other Tamika. They all are excellent! Any doll with "teeth" is a winner for me. :-)

  4. Bree version 2.0 is very beautiful! Raquele is one of my favourite facesculpts and is fun to repaint her.

    1. Thanks, Jewel Snake... I like Raquelle's facemold a lot too but honestly, I find her hard to repaint, I don't know why...

  5. I think they're great! I tried to repaint too but I'm still managing only partial repaints, not complete ones! I think the hardest part are the eyes. What kind of paint/technique do you use?

    1. Hi V! Thanks so much for visiting over my blog... I did start start with partial repaints, too because yes, the eyes are the most detailed and we think we need some sort of skills to tackle all that... I just gave it a shot with zero skills on eye repaint, although it helped that I also draw/paint portraits. I use watercolors for the details, and soft pastels for makeup... Here's a post I shared on my first ever attempt ;) http://ateliernishasha.blogspot.com/2016/07/braving-doll-reroot-and-repaint.html
