Jeremiah was a bullfrog...



Introducing Jeremiah.   My redhead Tonner Phin custom, done by Dr Krow, who is just lovely to do business with and is soooo talented, I'm seriously in awe.  :)


It was great fun doing up his wig and styling it.  I'd made the outfit long before today, so yay for not having to hang around in the buff. 


I absolutely love him.  <3


I'm a sucker for red hair, green eyes, and freckles, and have long wanted a male doll of that colouring.   The eyes that fit this sculpt are 5mm oval ones.   The measurement is in the iris. That's 5mm.  I learned to my cost when I first bought 10mm oval eyes - they were enormous!



The eyes I got from the USA - because you can't get anything here in Blighty - are really nice, but he pupil in one of them isn't quite central.  It gives him a slightly  boss-eyed look, so I'll have to try to get another pair in the hope that I'll at least get two green eyes out of the four that are in alignment.


The freckles Dr Krow has given him are lovely. The camera never does a good repaint justice and I can't capture how natural-looking these freckles are. 



And one final one in almost-monochrome.



(Now I can't stop singing this darned song...)




Next is Benjamin.  I'm going to attempt a mohawk (sort of) for him, and he doesn't have his outfit yet, so I'll have to dress him in Lucas's old stuff.   Ben will be getting a punk look eventuall, if things pan out.  An anrchy teeshirt, and some jeans with lots of black chains, and maybe some ripped bits and pieces.  We'll see.  Oh and studs.  I want to use studs.  :)

Phin, I'm saving for last.  His new face-up makes him look so arrogant, it's wonderful.  His outfit is almost complete, bar a good black tricorn, so not too much work required.

  1. He's scrubbed up very well ... not surprised you love him... what's not to love.... I too like redheads with green eyes.... Can't wait to see the rest of the gang and what you create for them... he looks so much better than the original... Dr Krow is indeed most talented.
