A blog all about my Barbie obsessions in collecting them and Barbie art. Some of my recreations are for keeps and some are for sale. I'm kind of 'in business' with a friend of mine, April, or Apey, as I lovingly call her. I have links to her blog all over mine. Check her out aswell. :o)

So I haven't been creative in awhile. I just haven't felt it. We all know I go through cycles of this. It could be the crazy, it could be the meds, it could be a lot of things, I don't really know. Apey hooked me up with some cool gears and watch innerds that struck my fancy in a creative way. I couldn't wait to start working on something and fast!
I picked out the perfect Barbie and got to work. I remembered to take progress shots so I could make an actual post about it! How lucky for you all. ha! All I'm missing is a before shot.
We started off with her face plate. I created most of it off her face using a big piece and adding smaller pieces to it, like a puzzle, then glued it to her face. From there I built on to it.
I did her eyeliner before the face plate, so I painted her lips and added a neck chain. She also has mismatched screws for earrings and screw for a ring.
Then she needed a shirt, so I crafted this loosely sewed, kinda shoddy corset-esque top.
Since Steampunk is our theme, I added some hardwear to the top.
