Hey all! I’ve been working on my design for the custom Bloom doll I’ve been designing. At first, I thought I’d do her entirely in golds and whites, but then as I walked the fabric shop I realized if I did so, it would make her look angelic, and that wasn’t the look I was going for. Instead, I went back to the staple pink and aqua combination and loaded up on sparkly fabric. I’m making her wings out of velum and different types of paper that sparkles–scrapbooking paper adds a lot of dimension to my ideas. I’m using the Concert Series doll I got for Christmas to do it, and she wore heels in her original packaging that will be repainted to the color I need them to be.
I do want to stay true to the series and her personality as I craft her new costume, so I’ve been browsing images of her and her past outfits and costumes. I’ve seen my share of the episodes, so I’m not worried about that much–but the outfits are very consistent in their base model, despite her different transformations. I’m still so excited that I own a blue Belivix! I’m such a nerd.
It makes construction a little difficult though, seeing as though I don’t want to go too far from the main base but I do want it to be different to the point that it will be recognized as not a pre-made factory doll. Hm.
