Well, I said I was finally going to get around to giving Pyrrha her haircut, and I did.
Of course, just as I feared I would, I also kind of botched it. Particularly in the place where it shows the most. 😦
I made the bangs much too short, and they’re uneven to boot. 😦 Worst of all, the center tends to fly upward, because it was originally side hair, since she didn’t have bangs before. Until I get that to behave itself, she’s gonna look pretty weird. On the other hand, choppy, fly-away bangs kind of fit her personality, so it could be worse, I suppose. (And if I ever decide I just can’t stand the horrible bangs, I could always buy her a new scalp, and hope I can get one with hair more or less the same color as what she’s got now.)
Naturally, I did a much better job in the back, where it doesn’t matter. *sigh*
I need to do something about her super-boring, skin-colored pull-ring now. And I need to get her some more hands so she won’t be stuck with just that one awkward hand pose.
As to her eyes and face-up, well, the mold for the eye chips is on its way (from Hong Kong, so it’ll be a while yet) and I have printable eyes to go under them, and if I don’t like the way those end up looking I can always try painting the resin eye chips myself, though that will probably be slightly disastrous. And I don’t want to try taking her apart any more than I have to, so I’ll deal with her face when I take her apart to give her the new eye chips.
Hopefully, this is all enough attention that she won’t be jealous. Because I did indeed place that order; Country Summer Blythe is on her way. (Again, it’ll probably be a while before she gets here.) She was on sale and I had $10 from PayPal, so I actually ended up spending less on her than on some of my more expensive Pullips, amazingly enough.
Now I just have to figure out what to do with all the hair I cut off. It’s such pretty hair that I don’t want to throw it away, but I don’t really do re-rooting right now (too much time involved), and most of it’s not really long enough for that anyway…
