Face Forward, Part I

December 23rd, 2011

I've been wanting to do this for a while now: make mosaics of my dolls showing all the face-ups they've had, from the first to the most current.

Face-ups, Part I (1 of 5)

Brandee (Limhwa Elly) Face-up Credits:
top and bottom left: Limhwa default (yes, they are both the same face-up, except for the beauty mark I added on the bottom picture, but I couldn't decide what picture to use…XD )
right: Xtreme Dolls/Cristy Stone

Note: The Cristy Stone face-up is amazing. I love it! There's only one problem I'm having with it: Brandee is Emily's (my Supia Rosy's) mother and her face-up seems a bit too perfect when compared to Emily's more realistic one. I keep wondering if they should have face-ups by the same artist. Too bad Emily's face-up artist is no longer around. I'm not sure what I'm going to do. I definitely won't be wiping Emily's face-up though—I love how much character and realism it has (see below).

Emily (Supiadoll Rosy) Face-up Credits:
top left: Supiadoll default (smokey)
bottom left: Xtreme Dolls/Cristy Stone
right: Zephiroth Aesthetics

Note: I thought the Cristy Stone face-up was gorgeous, but a little too sophisticated and glamorous for Emily's character. I actually ended up selling that head and getting a new one because I thought the face-up was too lovely to wipe.

Chloe (Fairyland Feeple65 Chloe) Face-up Credits:
left: Fairyland default
middle and right: Lyn of Filter Off-Kilter (human and elf heads)

Note: I asked Lyn to do the same face-ups on both the human and elf heads so they can be interchangeable for the same character.

Ethyn (Dollshe Hound) Face-up Credits:

right: SDink

Note: My first bjd! SDink did such a wonderful job on updating Ethyn's face-up while still keeping his "look".

Face-ups, Part I (5 of 5)

Julia (Fairyland Minifee Chloe) Face-up Credits:
top left: Fairyland Default
bottom left: Meggilu
right: HimiMO

Note: It took me awhile to settle on the right look for Julia, but I'm happy with her more mature look now. I think she looks like she could be 16 or 17, which is what her character is supposed to be.

    I love what you did with showing us the faceups. The Brandee , Emily dilema I like having them different and the more natural being the kid. The Depth of Brandees makeup makes her look more mature. I like Julia's look now also. Of course Ethyn's look , I think, is "him". Chole's heads do have the same look so she can be one or the other without a skin color change. That was smart. Great job you photograph you. Love. :lol:

    Thank you! This was a fun little project. I'll be posting the rest next week.

    Oh, that's true, Mom (about Brandee's make-up making her look more mature as compared to Emily's more natural and young look). I'm going to think about that a bit more, but you may have hit on a solution! :)
