:iconthe-forbidden-game:
As you may know, I have in the last year or so begun collecting Ball Jointed Dolls. I am very surprised I didn't start this much sooner, but I guess I just hadn't found the perfect companies yet (namely Iplehouse and Doll Chateau). My collection is currently at seven. Four proper Iplehouse dolls, one Hybrid Elfdoll/Iplehouse, one hybrid Doll Family A/Angel of Dream, and one Doll Chateau (my newest).

For the most part I do all their faces myself and make many clothes for them and to sell in my shop Ellie~et~Eden. www.etsy.com/shop/EllieEtEden

For the most part, I've loved the heck out of every doll I've gottten. . . but being a perfectionist. . . sometimes I have issues with the way things work out.

Namely the hybrids. I plan to do more modifications on Hel and then sell her, of course, but currently I'm having trouble with Charlie.

I LOVE this doll, really I do. . . I love the sculpt her head is and I love her body. . . but I have a problem with the jawline and the way it fits with the neck. My first thought, of course, is to just reshell her. . . a though which costs over 600 dollars, I might add. I mean, they have a perfect sculpt for her. . . . BUT . . . I kind of feel like that would be wrong. And I also want to use that particular sculpt for a totally different character.

So, what to do with Char?

Her body's been modded so that it would fit the head, the head has also been modded a bit. . . so I wouldn't be able to sell her for as much as I got her for, that's for certain. . . . but what of modding the head further?

I wonder if it could be done. . . and how much it would mess things up with the sculpt if I did it. I would likely have to rebuild some of the neck where I wore it down, and then I'd have to widen the hole in the bottom of the head. I would want to make her jaw a little bit thinner, too. . . which is he part I'm worried about. I don't want to totally ruin a gorgeous doll! T____T someone encourage me, please!!
