LOOK AT HER CUTE LITTLE NOSE ahhh. These customs look so crisp and professional. :)
In case you hadn’t noticed, today turned into Howleen Repaint Appreciation Day!
I’ve never seen this custom before! I found her via the Howleen tag. The sweet/morigirl styling really suits her. Howleen’s so versatile. :D

My favorite custom Howleen in the history of ever.

Woo, my first completed Monster High mod, my friend’s Lagoona! I repainted her and made her dress. Now I’m really looking forward to working on all the others dolls I have lined up!

Love Bug… A Valentine’s Day doll made by “Arkohio” for her Holly Daze collection. Birthday Ghoul is a part of that collection. ^_^
I love her sparkly eyes…
See, this is a *good* custom. It doesn’t make me flinch to see an elusive Cupid like this. I saw a Rochelle in the MH tag that had like, glitter paint slathered all over her and a sloppy face-up, and it just makes me go WHY WHY WOULD YOU DO THAT. People can buy the dolls and do whatever they want with them- it’s their money, and their doll, and tastes differ, and all that jazz- but I do admit it makes my heart sad to see terrible things done to a doll I am longing for. I guess everyone has to start somewhere, but man, it rubs salt in the wounds of those of us in scalper-ridden cities to see it all over tumblr. Thank god for the other people on tumblr, who help us unlucky ones find dolls. So much love for them.
Um, this isn’t a Cupid! It’s a Lagoona! And she is indeed really gorgeous. I love the little details like the sparkles added to her pink shoes. :)
For the record, we’re firm believers in “everybody’s gotta start somewhere” re: customs, though we do definitely recommend that people completely new to painting dolls try out some inexpensive source dolls first for the sake of their own wallets, lol (there’s a post about that in the works right now, actually).
The great thing about painting dolls is that so long as you take the proper steps in sealing them, you can always go back and change faceups as you improve! And even if you don’t seal your doll properly and stain the vinyl horrifically, you can paint over it using a paint like SEM that bonds to all types of plastics, vinyl included, and will give a lovely even color. There’s no such thing as a wasted doll! :)
