Enter Evelynn

Post by howll on Tue Apr 14, 2015 4:10 pm

She's here, she's finally here! And wow, not what I was expecting! Not a bad thing though!

Some pics first before I customise her! 






Love her!

For some reason though, I thought she would be bigger? Why? No idea! Perfect size though! I also thought she'd be heavier xD
I keep feeling I'm going to break her, they're pretty sturdy though right?
I love the texture on her though, something I was iffy about before ordering!  

Is there a guide on how to remove the eye holder? I'm having real difficulty with it! >_<
BUT YAYYY!

EDIT:  ARGH! All the images are on the side :/ I'll sort it later, wanna get customising!

They are really sturdy provided you don't force their joints the wrong way lol. Even then, they withstand a fair bit of manhandling.
I love the texture too, I can't stop touching them hahaha. It's so tactile.

The eye holder is a pain in the butt (well. fingers). Some are stiffer than others. My trick is to focus on only one of the prongs (the top one). Squeeze it so it comes out and the other prong should slide out nice. Once you click the thing in and out a few times it'll be a lot easier because it loosens up a bit. 
I haven't a clue how to open the back compartment though, that thing just refuses to come off on any of mine and i'm terrified i'll break it hah. Be useful for storing their must have accessories though.

She looks just like her digital form! Love her!

Congratulations on her arrival!  She is great  Very Happy  They are pretty sturdy, Wren travelled round loose in my bag the whole time I was in NZ and posed in various places and I never worried about her at all.  I love the lightness of them as well - so much easier for handling etc...

Can't wait to see her once you have done your work on her!   Have fun.

Face-up is done!



Oh jeez, it wasn't as bad as painting on normal dolls but I still had difficulties.  It's not the best pic I'm afraid, starting to lose light here! I'm getting her dressed and I'll take better pics then!

wow, well done howl! her lashes look lovely and are those little dots under her eyes? Look forward to seeing her all put back together.
Have you had some fun playing with her posing? I love how they stand on their own, it makes me smile after years of dealing with things like Barbie.

Heh, thanks! I'm quite proud of her, being my first.  Made a few mistakes along the line but got there in the end! The eyelashes were a pain in the butt, but I managed to get them in there eventually! The eyebrows started brown but I didn't like them, the colour I had was too orangey so I had the idea of doing them white and LOVE them! I'll get a better pic tomorrow cause they don't show up all that great on my phone :/  

Here's another piccy of her dressed up, she thinks she's some kind of badass, tch! -eyeroll-



She'll introduce herself to you guys properly tomorrow, not that you'd wanna meet her -whistles- sociopath -whistles-

the jumper really is cute hah, i'm yet to find anything it goes well with though. Fizz tried it on, it's very much HER style but thus far i've not found anything that looks cute with it. Maybe just some simple leggings, but simple is very much NOT Fizz's style hahhaha.

her headscarf is great btw

She looks fantastic Howll!  I just love her outfit sans cute yellow sweater which is great, but definitely not for her Wink  Fantastic work on her face up.  Did you seal it first?

Clash it Jen, clash ittttt! Hehe

Thanks Missread, nope didn't do any sort of sealant on it, mainly because I don't have any, it seems to hold up pretty good without it!

Oh I meant to say, the lashes were from poundland, they're SO good and you get four lashes, enough for 8 makies easy!

Yep! They have a whole makeup range now hahahha, apparently buzz feed did a review of it all and most of its sposed to be good.  I also picked up some eyelash curlers from there and curled the lashes before applying, worked well

Evelynn begrudgingly posed for some more photos today, she's not happy with them, but she's not usually happy with anything...brat.

She has some super awesome style man. I'm always so envious of your doll clothes stash.
Gosh she's pretty, but also oozing attitude. She's brilliant!

Thank you! I'm suuuuper happy with her! Ahhh, my clothes stash may be big but I still have trouble finding stuff I wanna wear xD I've got one of those big plastic storage container full of clothes, not to mention all of my 40-odd barbies on display that have outfits - yet I still struggle?! I do buy more clothes and fashion packs than I do dolls now, I've reaaaaaallly gone off MH/EAH and the like recently, I think I may sell up apart from one or two of my favourite dolls (Twylas, Scarah and Jackson!)

I know what you mean, I have a huge tub of assorted clothes too but because I collect such a wide range, they're a pretty broad spread and I never seem to be able to find anything that makes a complete outfit. Like.. this top is nice but no pants match it.. arghhhh.

I've ended up buying a lot of dolls just for their clothes and fashion packs too, but gender neutral stuff is still really super hard to find. It's doing my head in. I'm hoping when Smyths get those sparkle girlz fashions in the end of the month they get in some with some nice useful bits and bobs. They tops fit Makies but they need a bit of... stretch hahaha.

I'm going off mh too. there's a few new ones I kinda like the look of but the price coupled with the serious cheapification of the releases is pretty offputting. Marisol's hair was SUCH a letdown. She had this huge big hair thing that I loved. I mean, she was a great "me" doll. She was a hairy, big haired girl who was all "i'm still fabulous, take that beauty standards!" and that really spoke to me (being those  things myself). But sadly, her doll's hair is flat, limp and lifeless and just awful. It's thinly rooted, it has no parting so you can't do jack with it and it's just so blah. Upsets me because I was so looking forward to her doll. *sulk* I'll have to try to curl it or something, see if I can give it some volume but i'm not hopeful, seems a pretty lost cause.

And that's the real issue I have with the franchise, all these missed opportunities and things I feel I then have to "fix". Just.. no. If I want a doll I have to repaint and restyle, i'll buy a doll like a Makie.

And man am i obsessed hahaha.

So, can someone explain what's going on here because Evelynn seems to have gone mute?!



I come home from work to find her rummaging through the clothes box, wearing this rather dashing gown and has thieved a wig from my BJD Chloe (Chloe's awfully upset about the whole ordeal).  Who'da thunk it, eh? Miss bad-ass b**** likes to play dress up?  Razz

Sorry for the pic spam, but Evelynn wanted to show off her new look




I had the wig from my BJD, but it was curly and poofy, so I straightened it and cut in the fringe and I love it (And I think she does too!)
