LLL - Trouble Double-Bubble Custom by Ai-Bee LLL - Trouble Double-Bubble Custom by Ai-Bee
:iconpumpkinplz: Happy Halloween! :iconpumpkinplz:

I'm a bit late on posting, but I was busy around the house, being thoroughly spoiled by my mom with a halloween-theme goodie basket, watching a movie with my fam, and trick-or-treating on AC:CF with my sister until bedtime. Bwee!

Some tidbits I still managed to remember at this hour:

:bulletgreen: The acrylic paint I used varied in brand, I had some Folk Art, Americana, Craft Essentials by Joann's I think...? Whatever I had laying around. I also love toothpicks for detail painting. Love them.
:bulletblack: Her yellow started out too limey-dark so I added more white, which is why it's a bit more on the greenish side than yellowish. But I still like it.
:bulletgreen: She's gonna have a pet frog, a cauldron, and a broomstick one day. When I find/make all these little bits.
:bulletblack: I originally sealed her with Mod Pudge Glossy, but I didn't like it so shiny so I put Matte over it. It helped quite a bit but it may have been even less shiny had I just done Matte. I quest for an even more matte matte, because I quite liked her as is after she was painted but not sealed.

Yup. So bee has hobbies. Oh and! LLL stands for LaLaLoopsy. They're little ragdoll inspired toys. I'm obsessed with them, especially the minis that are like 3 inches tall! Also, Coraline comparisons are lame after you've heard them 100 times, so spare me. :'| I HAVEN'T SEEN THE MOVIE YET EITHER

Hope everyone had a decent halloween, or at least treated themselves to something sweet :) Gotta enjoy the little things, man.

put this dump together in PS7! The whole project took probably about 3-4 days becuase I did it rather leisurely, and getting my hands on the correct Pudge took a while... because I never go out. :ninja:

Thanks for all the favorites, comments, and watches! :love:
Been slacking off at replying lately, so I'll try to get caught up by the end of this week.

Haha, when I first saw the commercials for these cuties, I thought they were so adorable and different! I wish I had those when I was little. Anyways, I really like the combination you picked out for her, it's like Halloween-themed but not at the same time. She looks so much cuter now than before. @ u @ Take pictures when you get her her broomstick and frog.

ME TOO OMG! I would have been ALL OVER these cuties as a child. I love little cute things like this. :eager:
There's already another Halloween LLL, Candy Broomsticks, and she's a orange/purple/white/black witch, so I wanted to do something definitely not those colors. My ultimate goal was to make more custom loopsies that were green. And some blue. But mostly green. So that's basically my motivation ://P

Thank you gabs~ :hug: :heart:

Cute! I love the custom. it kind of makes me want to make a custom of my Lalaloopsy doll, but I'm afraid I would mess up. I'd love to see more custom tutorials in the future!

Thank you so much! I got really inspired by seeing other customs of LLLs too- the minis are easy because you only need to paint them. And if you think about it, the clothes and hair are like guidelines to help you stay in the correct area. Drawing a reference helps too! I started with Marina Anchors because I see dozens of Silly fun house dolls at my stores of her, so it wasn't like she was rare? Also, acrylic paint comes off pretty easily in soapy warm water or even a damp paper towel if it's fresh! So it's very easy to start over if you mess up. :aww: If you need a bit of encouragement... :giggle:

I will definitely post all my customs here, I love sharing them! :heart:

I really love the design of LaLaLoopsies. I think they are ADORABLE. I've yet to see one in person (I just realized with your tutorial that they're semi-posable).

Do you plan on doing other customs? I'd love to see the results if you do :3

Ai-Bee Featured By Owner Nov 1, 2012  Hobbyist Digital Artist
God they are so fun! They're all named silly things, and their created from something (Like Trouble here is sewn from a witches stockings) and they all get birthdays that are oftentimes national such-and-such days. it's adooorable. You can find them basically anywhere, I see them at Kmart and Walmart all the time, and I know Target and Toys R Us would have then. :eager: They are semi-posable! Their little legs move around, their arms move slightly (some are looser than others depending on their top) and their heads bob. And if you balance them against something right they can stand ://D

I do! I have a list of LLL minis I want to customize (already going crazy here) and I have monster high doll customs on my list after that, but I probably won't get started until spring 2013 when I get parts to start customizing. u///u~ I also have a couple my little ponies laying around I wanted to custom, but dying plastic makes me so lazy, haha!
I'll be sure to post anything I do though, I really enjoy sharing my progress :love:

ISN'T IT SFADFAGHBGVF :excited: it's actually relatively easy in the sense that you only need to paint things to make it different.
Actually~~~ Monster high customs are next on my list. I plan on doing dolls of all the characters I create. Working my courage up for it, but I'm sure it'll be fun! :eager:

Thank you~! :heart:
