Pat Secrist

LRC Custom and Molly McIntire

Two random dolls, because reasons. . .
Today my two randoms are this Little Raven Custom doll and of course, American Girl doll Molly McIntire.
The custom cutie with the pout has the Secrist "Button" sculpt and a long wavy brown wig from Monique that she is just all about!
Molly McIntire came to me a few years ago during her retire from American Girl. She was my first ever American Girl doll, and the doll that kicked off my 18" girl obsession. . .

LRC Custom Dolls

Two random dolls, because reasons. . .

Today my two random dolls were randomly selected from my list of custom dolls, LRC Charmers and The Cool Ones. They dont have names; they're both prototypes for future dolls.

Both the dolls use face sculpts by Pat Secrist (I adore Secrist faces!): Annette on the left, and Punkin the little princess on the right.

First-Borns Part II

Onto Part II of my First-Borns Project. (Again apologies for poor lighting. I had zero% natural sunlight as the skies rained for days!)

So I had fairly good success with my first two First-Borns, English Boy and Punkin Princess (for lack of better names). So I grabbed another four blank heads and got to work on them. Read more about First-Borns Part II

First-Born Customs Part I

Here's what been occupying me for the last couple of weeks: I had a whole lot of blank doll heads that needed some love and they weren't going away. Previously I had been focusing on cleaning up and restoring some TLC dolls I had picked up on eBay, listing them, selling, and trying to create some working space for myself!

Coming to Life

So yeah! I'm pretty happy with my progress on the custom cloth body I've been working on. I have the arms and legs attached now and even inserted the armature to fully test it out.
Some will probably find my headless dancing doll disturbing; all apologies. ;) But it's necessary. Before the head goes on, I have to be sure the rest of the body works as it should--and looks good too, which I think it does. Read more about Coming to Life

Crafting a Perfect Body

They say that with a bit of time and dedication you can craft yourself a perfect body. And so it goes for dolls too!

I say this as I'm closing out a very long day of working and reworking my custom doll cloth body pattern. I've been at it for days in fact, but I think I finally got some pattern pieces that will work. Read more about Crafting a Perfect Body

LRC Doll Company

Little Raven Creations doll parts

The Little Raven Creations Doll Company is born at last!

Well, I just received my first shipment of doll parts as a Secrist wholesaler, and wow, $500 worth of doll parts can sure fit into a small box lol. I suppose that's because its mostly heads and limbs, and you can get pretty creative in puzzle-piecing them into a small area. Its like doll part Tetris. :)

So here they are! I'm finally beginning on my journey towards my year long dream of having my own doll line! And it goes really well hand-in-hand with my custom clothing design project for creating very unique doll themes. I'm so excited! Lots of imagery and ideas are crossing my mind right now!

It's Going. . .

I've got some progress going on my four rescues. In the past, I've worked on up to three dolls at a time so taking on four is a lot to bite off! But so far so good. I'm especially happy with the way my Heidi Ott disembodied-Hannah-head-bargain is looking; it's come a long way since pairing itself with a headless AG body--a match made in doll heaven. Hannah is now Han, and I'm loving his freckles and brows. He's close to done now, just needs new clothes. Read more about It's Going. . .
