Yesterday I made a new dress for Lyric, my 60s 'once blond' Slate eyes Gotz Sasha. As you'll probably have gathered by now, I love colour....lots of colour and probably the brighter the better. But I decided to go with white because I always like how nice white dresses look on our tanned skinned Sashas. I'd had this broiderie anglais fabric for ages and thought I'd use that. It is quite thick and very 'holey' so although I've used this particular pattern before, this fabric was my 'weekend challenge'. However, I think the bigger challenge, despite much pressing with the iron, was getting the darn collar to lie flat!!
Once I'd undressed Lyric though, I realised that she needs a bit of work. The poor girl has chest caving and I need to sort that out soon. But I notice that she has a wooden head/neck attachment so I'm not sure whether to try getting her head off to work on her or to remove her legs, which might be easier....but that is for another day, as I got side tracked trying wigs on her! Yes, she is a little baldy, so has to wear a wig.
But that is not all, she also has very very faded whites to her eyes, in fact there really isn't any white to speak of, but the irises themselves are quite good....so I thought I'd add a tiny bit of white watercolour pencil to bring the whites back. Not a good move. In the photos of her in the red wig she looks like one of the children from The Village of the Damned!!!!
So I decided to try another wig on her, this time it's another lovely soft Monique Gold wig, which like a lot of my wigs in this size, I've had almost forever! I like the style on her and think it tones down the whites of her eyes a bit, but not sure on the blue highlights......
Finally I went back inside and toned down the whites of her eyes again, then changed her wig for a Monique Gold Jojo which I put into pigtails. I quite like the style on her but not sure on the colour. Now if I could have the brown of the above wig with the style of the below one, that would be perfect!!! I might have to add a wig for her to my next wig order! :)
Ignoring the eyes, which is your favourite wig for Lyric? I'm leaning towards the second one but don't be influenced by me, please tell me what you think!!
Hope everyone has a safe and good week ahead :)
