Thalassa holds the record of being the girl that has travelled the furthest to visit my workshop. Coming all the way from Chile, Thalassa is an Selkie who thinks she is a mermaid. She started her life as a Merl Nostalgia, and she came my way to match her personality (and her awesome eyechips) with a new face-up.
Today we’re going to look at how to re-body a Pullip type 4 with an Obitsu body. Chibi, my pink Poison-girl beauty is going to be the model, so she will get a new body to match her Toffee sister. Chibi is a Pale girl, and will be going on a Obitsu 27cm in white. She has a soft bust.

So, after receiving Agnes and deciding I could never touch her, as I loved her too much, I ordered some fakies to practice customising on. Whereas Pullip releases kits for you to customise, for Blythe, […]
I haven’t had a chance to draw in a long time – I’ve had this idea for a customized Blythe in my head for the last couple of months and I thought I would do […]
I was browsing Yahoo Japan one day when a broken Pullip Varele showed up for around AUD$20. I couldn’t resist. I snapped her up, and she arrived bald, with half an eyebrow sanded off. I mean, in my mind I do designer artistic things for a living, so how hard can doll customisation be?
I got to work on my Yeolume Blackberry over the weekend. I’ve been growing fonder and fonder of her recently. Her wig, as mentioned before is absolutely amazing, but her faceup was crooked, and I really wanted to give her a new look. So, I embarked again on a customising adventure.
