I post on this forum called Monster High Arena and they had this photo competition called Arena’s Next Top Monster, patterned after America’s Next Top Model. I’d never really taken more than the basic family snapshots before, but a friend of mine talked me into joining with her. That’s what I’ve been doing all these weeks rather than updating my site. I’ve just been focusing on taking pictures instead of making stuff. And it was all anonymous, so that’s why I couldn’t post the pictures before now. I dropped out this week because I haven’t been having fun competing, but I still like taking the photos so I’ll just post them in the play along thread, separate from the competition. Anyway, here are my photos!

I’ve been wanting to make a custom of a character I made up ages ago that was intended to be a KiSS doll. I don’t really make those anymore and she never got finished, so she never really existed. Her name is Unicorn Princess and she’s meant to be sort of a celebration/parody of She-Ra, Jem, and all the other lady heroes from my childhood. Since I’ve gotten into customizing dolls, I’ve been wanting to make her happen and this is the first step. While I do collect Ever After High dolls, I’m not in love with their head sculpt, so I ordered a Kurhn doll on eBay (this one, to be exact) so that I could put her head on an EAH Apple White body which was a perfect match. I’m pretty pleased with the results! I’ll need to reroot her with a different color hair, of course, and I may or may not repaint her face, but I need a lot of practice at that first. Either way, I love my new doll. She looks so wispy and delicate.
