I have been looking forward to this post for a long time. My guest today is Charlotte--a talented doll artist from the United Kingdom who specializes in customization. Charlotte mixes and matches bodies and heads (Azone bodies with Licca-chan heads is a favorite of hers...) and also repaints a variety of dolls ranging from Obitsu to Monster High. You can see her work on Instagram and also on Tumblr. Charlotte and I started communicating over a year ago, at which point she had a ton of great ideas for a customization-themed guest review. My favorite idea of hers was that she share some of the techniques behind her beautiful repaints. Well...as it happened, Charlotte got busy earning a degree and I got busy playing with dolls, and it ended up taking a year to pull this post together.
That all worked out for the best, though, because Charlotte has gotten even more accomplished over the last year, and has actually opened an Etsy shop (Milklegs Dolls) through which I was able to purchase a few of her repainted Monster High and Ever After High dolls. So, in this post Charlotte will walk us through her repainting process and then I will share some pictures of my two exquisite Milklegs girls.
