It has been almost a month since our summer vacation started. So far, so good - it has been a lovely summer. Still have several weeks left to enjoy.
On the hottest day this summer, with +32°C and no breeze I decided to start a little project, that made me all sweaty and frustrated. Needed a little hand fan to keep me cool. And the projects are still going on. One is my Monster High doll Gooliope Jellington and the other one is my Ever After High doll Raven. They have their own stories and one day I will share these.
|Off with her legs!|
|A little fan in the kitchen cupboard at my mother in law.|
|Gooliope's legs, clued back on and a bit bumpy.|
|While the others watched UEFA Euro 2016, I sat in the kitchen|
and started a repaint on Gooliope.
|Continued the work at our cottage. Borrowed a plastic glove|
from the nurses that visit mother in law. Gooliope has it
on her head, to protect the hair.
Gooliope Jellington had, for my taste, too long legs. So I borrowed my father in law’s (may he rest in peace) saw and did some serious measuring, sawing, clueing and filling with model filler. Then it was time to polish and make it all soft and smooth. Right now I am at the point of finding a color that will suit her ordinary pinkish tone. No fun with those gray areas on her legs. Her face is done and I could not resist to use Juri Ueda as a inspiration, again. More pictures in a new post soon.

Fayanna, my Ever After High Raven, escaped from the Circus Lunaire and she is now living a good life as a troll. Her dream was to live as a ordinary girl, but the change was too much for her. She still looks at bit sad, but she is a happy girl. She still is confident, competent and have big dreams, too.
She needs some clothes, as even Gooliope does. My youngest daughter thought that Fayanna would look nice in short hair. I rerooted her ("Omg, so much hair" said my hubby), and hope to trim her hair a bit.
Fayanna has a soft head, so it was a bit difficult to reroot her. I had thoughts of getting Gooliope a wig, but I need to think about that for a while. I like the pink and yellow color on her, so maybe she will stay that way.
|My little paper, where I tested some colors, had a note when I came back.|
"Hej Mamma! :)" (Hello Mum!)
