Well, one day some time ago I was playing with my Charahub account and making up some stories for my doll, and dolls I want to buy, when I realized I did not liked the idea I had for Cookie, and that she did not "fit" it. This is kind of strange for me, because Coco arrived with lots of personalities, and Cookie is kind the opposite, more shy. Dunno. Crazyness of the dolly hobby.
So, I decided that I had got the idea wrong, and Cookie wasn't like I originally though. Then, my mom make me a cute bee outfit for her, and that was when I started to think that this little doll will look great as a fantasy character.
So, here at the left we have the little mock up I did for the new Cookie. I don't want to sell the doll, I know she is a keeper... but it is like she doesn't look like herself, I don't know! This sound so crazy to me, it never happened before!
Anyways, I want to rant a little about how I'm going to do with this changes, so please bear with me after the cut. I sincerely want to read opinions.
Ok, to start, and after thinking a little I started to think of her as Cookie Miu, a little cat fairy, that is the queen of fairies. She can also be cute and adorable, but also has some attitude. I want to commission Sparrow for some cute cat ears and tail, I want them to have little flowers or pears in the base.
But I decided I will try first with some handmade, to see if this is in reality want I want for her. I don't want to waste money and time in something that won't work. So, I organized a swap with a friend of mine: she will make the fantasy parts for me, and sent me some eyes, and I will make a dress+leggings for her 1/6 doll. :D I will start sewing this ASAP.
Secondly, I tested Calina's 8mm eyes in Cookie -thanks mom!- and decided that smaller irises fits her best. Also, I'm getting some gray eyes, so all the color will happen in her ears, and clothing. I don't want too many contrasting things that clashes against her skin tone.
After that, I thought of changing her wig to a white one, because the brown is cute and all, but in the pictures it just looks the exact same color of her skin, and it drives me nuts. So, I tested Coco's white wig, in order to see a more accurate version of the combination (please excuse the queality):
I really like this wig on her.
Also hubby told me that he had suggested white hair before and that I did not listen to him, what it is true, and now I'm giving him the reason. Anyways, my mom offered her wig-making skills to make some wigs for Cookie, so I can try different cuts and do's on her, before committing on a fiber wig. BUT, I have been spotting this to wigs from ForMyDoll, both in Sweet Milk color:
Finally, after sewing for the swap, I will be doing her the cat feets, and some cute outfit I have in mind. I'm getting really excited about this whole idea, and I sincerely hope she will fit it nicely. I never thought I would get into fantasy dolls so soon, but... you can never say never! :D
PD: I will be slowly filling up her Charahub file, too.
