Social Networking for Fashion Doll Lovers
My Evangeline Ghastly is in desperate need, she's totally wonky eyed (though careful photography can disguise it a bit). I know it can be done, as I saw a custom on ebay with changed eyes. The person had cut the back of the head to create a removable scalp so she could change and align the eyes.
I plan on experimenting with a couple Liv dolls I have lying around, but wondered if anyone had attempted this and could give some suggestions?
I spent some time looking around the internet, and found a tutorial. The tut shows how to perform this on both wigged and rooted dolls! I figured I'd leave the link here in case anyone else runs into this problem.
Nina, what a neat link! I would have never thought to carve out the eyes and replace them! Hmmm I wonder if they make eyes small enough to fit into Barbie heads? (I've tried repainting eyes and am terrible, and bet replacing with realistic would be less expensive that having a professional painter do it!) I have also seen folks replace the Liv eyes but had no clue how they did it...and my Cleo might get new eyes too! Sooooo many possibilities!
