Pepper body upgrade

Did a new body mod for Pepper.
This body started out as MtM Bambi.

Cut along the pink and purple lines. Then lots of sanding and gluing. All the new joints have been drilled out and filled with Sugru. 

She has lost no articulation due to this mod, but is now considerably shorter than the original with a smaller bust. New hands too.  Hands are feet are still removable.

3. Erin, You Look So Fine Erin (only mouth repainted)

4, Meghan, former Made to Move Teresa, full repaint.

Fun and Games (NSFW)

Nik and Katya are friends and lovers. Katya likes the thought of role playing and Nik certainly doesn't mind.

Anna Nikolaevna Golubeva

I have another crazy story in mind, that I don't know if I'll ever do anything more about than create characters.
It's a story about a theater troupe.

One of the characters is a lady of early sixties, and actress whose amplua (a casting type) is the Grande Dame. She plays parts of influential women, such as empress and queens, but sometimes can be cast as a mother. In my head this character is a bigger lady.

I started by getting a shorter wider male body.

The Frank Sinatra Barbie head that I originally planned on using did not match the body either by color or by size, so I ended up repainting a Ken head to my satisfaction, including make-up and age lines.
I made a wig, using grey striped Merino wool. I'm considering doing another few wigs, to see what would look better.

Then I went back to the body and took off the bottom of the legs and added screws , so I can use removable Bratz feet. I also added Barbie hands to the arms. I feel they palms are a bit too small for her body, we'll see if I find anything better eventually.
I used Apoxie sculpt to make her some boobs, an ass and a belly. My very first time sculpting anything at all.
I painted and blushed the body, using a bunch of acrylics and pastels. You can see the feet don't match that well, but they look much better in person than in the crappy pictures.
I really like how the stomach came out, but she looks top heavy to me. Like a football player. Though, when she turns sideways, there is a very nice bottom to balance it out.
The only clothes that will fit her are the ones meant for Ken boys and male action figures. I'm gonna be do a lot of sewing for her.
I think she is very regal looking though.

Game night

This set of pictures was created to show off the board games that I got for my 1/6 tenants.

Pepper and John are playing chess. Emily is reading a magazine, paying attention to the game at the same time. John's King is in check.

Kurt wants to play connect four. He is not a big fan of chess.

It's not John's night at all. Kurt beat him 5-2.

Emily's favorite game is scrabble. Here they are setting it up.
