I found some super tiny scale mail on the Ring Lord website and decided to give some miniature pieces a try. This is the first prototype for a scale mail bikini top for a MSD ball jointed doll. These dolls are about 1/4th scale to human size.
This project took about 7 hours, but I was teaching myself as I went along so I imagine as I get better at this process that future bikini tops wont take as long. The most difficult part was adding stabilizing rings to the bottom edges of the triangles as, as this scale, the rings are so small that they are barely wide enough to hold the extra rings and the scales at the same time. If I can get the hang of this in a more timely manner, I will offer some of these in my shop when I am ready to re-open it. As for now, though, I have barely enough time to get prototypes and chores done while working full time and school is starting this next week so who knows if I'll be able to get much else made.
Here Danny is modeling for me, Daenerys is an Iplehouse Cecile head on a Doll Legend MSD body. I made her yarn dread wig, all her jewelry and her velvet skirt myself. Her eyes are custom made from: www.safrindoll.com/
Her face up and body blushing were done by TatsuKitty from Den of Angels.
