HIDE your face

She made it today!!

I'm a bit sad, because I don't have anything coming in the mail to look forward to anymore...
But my dollfie is here!
I took a cue from Zoi and "borrowed" some clothes from my Rayearth doll so she wouldn't be naked XD
Umi kept the panties, though.. phht. It wasn't that big of a deal, since I have Umi doll and two outfits. (The regular one she comes in, and the princess outfit- which is what I usually have her displayed in) Just no panties for poor Acantha.
I did her face-up as soon as she arrived. I was very nervous about it, because I didn't really have any paints made for this sort of thing, but I found out it worked out ok with my model paints.. and since they were water-soluble, I was able to get rid of most of my mistakes as they happened XD I'm mostly happy with the way it turned out. The lips ended up nicely, as did the streaked makeup on the lower lids. I was having a lot of trouble with the eyebrows.. but they're ok now. Also- the upper lids were giving me trouble. It's always so much easier when you're putting makeup on yourself :P

In a streak of incredible luck, the eyes also arrived today. I bought 5 sets so I could switch them out if I wanted, and I could give her one in one shade and one in another if I liked. I got mostly blues and purples, but some of them are streaked with hazel. The ones she is wearing now are very pretty. Akuma's asleep, so I couldn't get him to help me with the camera.. so unfortunately, I couldn't get the flash to turn off, and wasn't able to get very many good shots of her face& eyes >..<

I'm so happy to finally have a ball-jointed doll like this! I have always thought they were very pretty. If I could afford justify planting down the money on a super dollfie, I probably would. I imagine it's a lot easier to paint the face-ups on a larger doll. Still, I'm happy with everything, and it was all relatively cheap! (BTW- arn't those claw clips fantastic? I found them at HEB in a set of tons of mini-hair accessories for only 1.50 )
Oops.. oh yeah. Photos! XD

Meet Acantha!
When I was researching names,
I found this one
It's Greek for "Thorn"
And I thought it was very pretty
