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. Update: She has been adopted.
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.
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 the Sea Witch
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.
I should have posted these photos of Fairy Floss much sooner, but I ended up sharing Basil’s photos instead. Fairy Floss came first though and she’s one of the few Lil’ Head Zombuki dolls I’ve done. Made using a Little Pullip Miss Green on a 23cm Obitsu body, Fairy Floss has a head that’s more of a “normal” proportion. Because Lil’ Head Zombuki dolls have smaller heads, they also have a lower price point, and if you’re interested in adopting Fairy Floss, she is available in the shop. Update: She has been adopted!
Flower is the first matching kokeshi I’ve made in a long time and I’m very happy with her. The idea of dolls have dolls is so adorably meta to me; I’m now going back and making one for Grumble Cake, too. Fairy Floss comes with this Art Plonsjeroze outfit that I took out of the plastic just for her. I’m still sad that there won’t be any new AP dresses, but it makes the ones I have that much more special.
