GZ: Sugar, you are the newest Best Thing to come into My Monster Crush. Welcome!
S: Thank You Big G. I am blushing under my face paint.
GZ: You are the third custom to come from Dolly Dolly Fashions. I would love to hear about your process- because, Sugar, you are very different!
S: You mean how was I made?
S: I started out as kind of a parts doll I guess. My parts are a combination of a Monster High Skeleton CAM and a Ghoulia body. Poor Ghoulia lost her head. The CAM arms were modded to fit the Ghoulia body's upper arms.
GZ: How was that done?
S: The pieces that go inside the arms were trimmed to be the same as the removed original arms, then they were sanded with a nail file until they fit. That took awhile. One must be patient when you are modding a doll.
GZ: And what was next?
S: Oh, next was opening up the upper leg to remove the original legs so that the skeleton ones could be put in. The thighs were first cut with and exacto blade- then with a tiny round saw that fits on her Dremel tool. Making the cuts with the blade made a channel for the saw blade. After the old legs were removed and the skeleton legs put in, she glued the legs closed with nail polish remover.
GZ: How does that work?
S: Acetone or nail polish remover melts the plastic- she put some on with a q-tip and then held them closed.
GZ: What was next for you?
S: Hair. She rooted my head with black KaneKalon. It was braided and then set it with boiling water. It was a little scary- but not too bad. She kept my head out of the water. Just the hair went into the bowl.
Then she took off my face paint- are you sure people are interested n this?
S: Yes, they were. Then they were painted light peach several times. Thin layers.
GZ: Did the pencil hurt?
S: No! There is lots of hair and glue inside, so I didn't feel a thing! Did you notice my lips are different colors on the top and bottom?
GZ: Yes I did. You are nothing but a sweet treat to look at.
S: And I have these ridiculous eyelashes! Aren't they wonderful?
GZ: I'll say!
GZ: I understand you have your own chair? The one we used in the studio?
S: Yes! Is is nice and big. I really like it. It was made especially for me.
GZ: It is perfect for you too. Shows off your beautiful bone structure.
S: Oh, Thank You!
GZ: Thank You Sugar for taking time out of your schedule to see me. It has been a blast!
