Studio Portrait Friday, October 13th Edition

Good morning all and happy Friday the 13th! I’ve been adding progress photos to my Zombuki Instagram account, but I haven’t been posting them here. That’s hopefully going to change though, and I’m going to do my best to bring back the SPF roundups. I hope you enjoy this week’s photos (forgive the quality, my iPhone is old).

The first few layers are being added to my new girl. This Zombuki has a multi-blue/aqua/purple/pastel lime green color scheme with metallic gold details. I don’t have a tan MIO body, however (I actually need two), so if you have one to sell please let me know.

In this photo you can see some of the colors I’m mixing for her. I have a love/hate relationship with mixing colors. I love it because I can get everything just right, but I also hate it because the paint dries out and it’s hard to match the original color. You’ll see this with her eyebrows; I re-mixed the colors so many times they keep getting darker and I have to fix it. Oops!

Zombuki Doll Photos: Galupe on Black

Zombuki Galupe on Black

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.

Zombuki Photos: Miss Violet Boo

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.

Zombuki Pullip Sierra, Unicorn Twin

Zombuki Pullip Sierra – Unicorn Series

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.
