Hoopskirt for Nines. Current LD in progress
Dervish the LittleDead of Confusion
1: So the original design is the one on bottom, as you can probably not see, it was a dress made out of zippers. I don’t know why I associated that with confusion, I think I mostly wanted something punk. Derv’s new design (on top) is SO much more on point. Her imagery is very grey/black but her hair is going to be a grey blue, mostly to break up the monotony and…I don’t have a dark grey fleece. I suppose I could go buy some but I think the blue will cement the blustery day motif. The new clothes are so much better and are a supposed to evoke a sense that the designer changed their mind halfway through.

4. Fabric I pulled out and might use. I am getting so much mileage out of those old pinstripe pants. Recognize em? Tybalt is Wearing them too XPAnd if you recognize the gingham and spots, that’s from Banshee’s dress. The weird fluffy white stuff? My old sorta curtain inside a curtain thing. WERK IT GRRL
I’ve been quite active recently, churning out the bases for numerous LDs and designing them up the wazoo.
Gotta love it when you find something you’re good at no?
So The names, from left to right in the first pic are Cordial, Meringue, Mimosa, and Octavia.
If you’ve followed the blarg, you will have already seen Octavia’s design. TENTACLE ARMS FTW!
Mimosa needs new eyes, they have to match the shading of Meringue and Cordial since they’re in a set of four. So a dark orange. Bah. Brown is so not right.
Until I manage a proper photoshoot.
This is Anna’s LittleDead, currently nicknamed Boten Ana because I got tired of calling it ‘Anna’s LittleDead’.
She was finished at 11:30 today.
Anna’s LD Progress
In the world of the LittleDeads, its called the In-Between, the residents are the remnants of of people’s innocence, their inner child, their LittleDead. The Little Dead part of their insides that refuses to disappear. These residents go about their own activities and lives but are forever tied to their Deus, their Ego, their You. For example Banshee’s Ego is a character named Sybella. Sybella does not live in the In-Between, however Banshee is a resident of the In-Between.
When a LittleDead is made into a a tangible figure, a plushie or construct, they gain the ability to reunite with their Ego, and leave the In-Between whenever they choose.
When you buy a Custom LittleDead you are buying your LittleDead, the reflection of your own inner LittleDead. Obviously this process is more taxing on the Deus than simply buying a LittleDead from my own invention, and requires that the Deus be rather involved in the initial conception of the LittleDead.
If you are interested in connecting with your LittleDead and bringing them out of the In-Between – because truthfully its very dark there, although the stars are very pretty – then please email me at dollectable [at] gmail [dot] com.
In your email you should include these things:
Choose your colors
You’ll need a body color and a hair color at the least. Some dolls have more than one body color or hair color, if that is desired, include that in your description. Also include color suggestions for the clothes.
Choose a Description
Think about how you define yourself, what adjectives you might use, or groups you belong to. What do you enjoy, what do you identify with? Who are you? Think about your past, what your lost innocence would look like. If thats really too heavy, pick a concept, the Sins are all about concept. Maybe you are something like that.
If there is a feature you with to have incorporated, include it here. Think about your hobbies, your job, what you enjoy. For example, my friend likes to sew, ergo she asked me to include sewing supplies.
After receiving your information I will come up with a basic sketch with my ideas and email it to you with a price estimate. Since each doll is an individual undertaking and they differ in complexity, Doll estimates might be different.
I also do simple concept LittleDeads, if the custom process feels too daunting for you. I could make you the LittleDead of Coffee or Ice Cream, if that appeals to you more.
