Throwback Thursday! June 26th is Zombuki Galupe’s birthday, and these photos are from her first birthday in 2008. I cannot believe that Galupe is 10 years old. She is still with me – only 3 Zombuki dolls are – and while I’ve kept fewer over the years, I know Galupe will always be with me. In fact, she’s in the studio with me right now getting a little touch up after a decade of existence.
This is my favorite photo shoot with her, too, with the Electric Mush shoot a close second. Galupe does live with me though, so who knows? Maybe there’s another photo shoot in the future that I will like even more.
Re-introducing Zombuki #66, Miss Violet Boo! If she looks familiar, that’s because she is a custom Pullip from 2012, but I just couldn’t quite put her down. She has been touched up and given a lot more love this summer, and now she’s ready to join her forever doll family.
Miss Violet Boo is wearing a spooky cute dress from DropDeadFashions and skeleton thigh high socks. Her purple wig is from Monique.
It’s time for another Zombuki Thursday post! This week’s post features new photos of an older Zombuki custom Pullip, Sierra, one of the Unicorn Twins. I finished Sierra a long time ago, but never took photos of her until recently. Over the summer, Sierra and her sister Bianca went home to a dear friend and Zombuki doll uber-collector, so I’m very happy because they are in good hands.
Zombuki Pullip Sierra – Unicorn Series
Sierra’s wig and horn are both from Leeke World, her dress is BHC, and her eye are Cool Cat flat clear chips that I added copious amounts of glitter to. I hope you enjoyed her photos, I am planning on making another unicorn girl soon and I can’t wait.
Zombuki #73 is here! She is the Sea Witch, a character from Hans Christian Andersen’s The Little Mermaid in Zombuki doll form. The Sea Witch is a fascinating character, she has no name in the original story and very little description except that she lives in a house made of human bones and lets a toad eat from her mouth. The first thing she says in the story is: “I know what you want, … it is very stupid of you, but you shall have your way, and it will bring you to sorrow, my pretty princess.” I love this original character because, unlike Disney’s Ursula, the Sea Witch tries to talk the little mermaid out of the deal.
One of the only physical descriptions of the Sea Witch is that she has black blood, so I wanted her character to be both beautiful and very dark. I gave her glitter eyes that are sparkling like ocean water and teal lips.
