Say hello to Aliisa


I am in a progress of giving my Monster High dolls a make over. Going through the bunch I have to see who needs a new repaint and who need a face up in general. I have had this Draculaura that Alasse sent me for a while ago. Had plans for her to look like a walking add for Harajuku Fashion, but it really did not suit her. Then I thought she would be a candy dream (details with candy made from clay and so on), but that sounded too sweet. Well, she is my sleepy head, all in pink. Meet Aliisa.

Before. Just with a wig from Alasse.

Some glitter to make her sparkle.

Borrowing some glasses from another monster.

Such a sleepy head.

So vain.
Her name is a Finnish version of Alice that comes from the Old French name Aalis, a short form of Adelais, itself a short form of the Germanic name Adalheidis. Alice became popular in France and England in the 12th century. It was borne by the heroine of Lewis Carroll's 'Alice's Adventures in Wonderland' (1865) and 'Through the Looking Glass' (1871).

Pouty lips. I think I am bothering her with this photo shoot.

Borrowing some shoes from a monster. Or maybe she just took these...

Cold outside!

Made the flower crown out of mini roses and pipe cleaners. 

I really like how she turned out. Wanted to try something 'new' for me, a doll with closed eyes. 

Fancy sitting.

Behind the scenes - at my 'office', as we say here at home. And by the way, the greenish book is my bullet journal!

And some weather news. Snow and cold.  We had -14°C just the other day and today we got some snow. It is beautiful to see the snowflakes fall and when the sun shines it is like Winter Wonderland. But then when it gets warmer and get so slushy, it is no fun no more. 

Our street, a view out from the kitchen.

Frosty window. Had it open for a while and the warm air indoors got to meet the cold air outdoors.

Enjoy your new week and hopefully your new year have started well!

    1. Thank you so very much! Hope you find one sleepy head or maybe you can make one? Most of the dolls in that size has 'normal' eyes, have not seen any sleepy heads. But maybe there will come some, who knows.

  6. Your girl looks lovely, you've done a great job on her, she makes a perfect sleeping doll.
    The snow looks beautiful too, but soooo cold, I'm such a wimp when it comes to the cold....I struggle when it goes into the teens LOL. Last weekend it was 9C during the day, I really really hated it!

    1. Thank you so much, Sharon! She was lovely and fun to work on!
      It can be rather cold up here during winter. +9°C is almost like Spring time over here. :D And the fog makes it even worse. But those sunny winter days can be really wonderful.
      Hugs!

  7. Firstly, it looks really cold where you are right now. I am a little jealous as it's been so hot here. Let's swap! Hehe.

    Your girl looks really nice. I love that you turned her into an eyes closed girl. Her styling is so beautiful too. She looks very peaceful.

    1. Our winter time can be rather mixed. The latest days have been foggy and chilly. In a day or two it can be sunny and mild, almost a feeling of Spring and then be snowy for many days. I prefer sunny and cold. You get red apple cheeks. :) I can swap that for some summer weather!

      Thank you so much, glad you like her. I wanted to try something new and her face was perfect for closed eyes. :)
