It's A New Day

As we near the end of 2015 I am well aware that I let this blog fall by the wayside. I haven't been ignoring my dolls...just this blow. I promise to do better. I'm going to slowly bring this blog up-to-date with all that I've been doing with my dolls. The most exciting news is that I've discovered action figures! I love the adult look and not the "teenager" look of my Mattel dolls. The main issue I have with them is that their bodies are so much more muscular than the Mattel dolls which required custom drafted patterns for fit. The second issue is their feet. I do have a selection of shoes but only combat type boots. I've already broken a foot on one guy because of the vise-like fit. Not an all the way bad thing because it made me venture into making shoes!  I'll leave you with a few pictures and promise to return with more frequency!
