Nala, My sweet butterfly

Post by KimonoKittyCat on Fri Feb 20, 2015 5:30 am

Nala is my only makie. I have had her for about a month now and I love her to death. She is half butterfly (though I am still experimenting on how to attach her wings, hmmm). She is a total air head, loves having little explorations around the house and likes finding little treasures she hoards in her room. Smile She loves her teddy and pet spider, Ariana, who reminds her of her loving older brother, Aran, who will be ordered soon (hopefully in the next month). Razz

She is wearing a dress hand stitched by me, thanks to the patterns from forum. Very Happy

No because I am still deciding on how and what to make them out of. I would love to make them like real butterfly wings all soft and delicate but that causes problems when trying to handle them without tearing or, in my case, destroying them beyond repair.Razz If anyone has any ideas I'm open for suggestions.Very Happy

ooo attaching wings. Tricky. You could cheat and just do elastic loops around the arms eheheh. Or you could drill holes into the back plate and wire them through it. Ooo logistics, always tricky.

Look forward to seeing them.

How about using a fabric stiffener on some lace? That may make wings that could be fixed if they get messed up or could be easily replaced.

There are some very cute butterfly wings that should fit makies on etsy. It's worth having a look!

I will have to check them out. I've been so busy lately that I haven't had time to sit down and work on her wings so maybe this could be my solution. Thanks Razz

Lol, the nice thing about the Makies having that removable back "hatch/door/plate", is that you can order a replacement one.

That way, if you decide that you want to attach her wings permanently, you will still have a back "hatch/door/plate" that hasn't been modded, which she can use if she decides or needs to go wingless. Smile

It also gives you a spare, just in case. ^_~

So today I took the plunge I was dreading and super excited about. I gave Nala her face up! cheers This was my first time ever customising a doll and I think she turned out great. Ok enough of me babbling, here is Nala with her new face up.flower
So some quick updates about the wings. I found a seller on etsy and found some lovely wings I wanted to buy but I didn't have the money and they recently shut down the shop until May so I can't buy the wings. But I have found another pair from a different seller but they are a little more expensive so I will have to put off buying them until I get the money. Which will hopefully be soon.Very Happy

So the other day Nala and I had a nice afternoon at the beach. Lots of photos were taken. After we arrived home she insisted that I make her a shell necklace from the seashell she snuck home. Very Happy

It looks like she had a great time. I imagine you have to keep her distracted to burn off all the excitement for Ig to arrive.

Yeah she really is excited. I haven't told her about Ig's delay so she has a days waiting count on her chalkboard and is constantly pestering me asking "When will he be here? Is he here yet?" Maybe I will make her something or take out somewhere else to try and distract her.
