Grumpie the Clown – Baby Qee custom

Made for Leon from Openthetoy. A local toy blogger, a toy fanatic and a friend. We finally met up at last year’s STGCC 2010 and he asked if I could make him a custom toy, Caramelaw style. I agreed and brought home the cute, little, blank Baby Qee. Its a waaaaaaayyyyyy overdue project. So I’ve decided to pick it up and start painting. The request was to make it NOT too girlish though and to maintain the green head and angry eyes of the Openthetoy mascot. At least there are no flowers and pearls in this custom! I think he looks quite angry (but cute). What do you think?

Mickey Mouse custom, “Eat me, I’m candy!”

A really cool and fun project by Play Imaginative. I was invited to custom a Mickey Mouse figure standing 6.5″ tall. This little Mickey here is made for the Play Imaginative Mickey Mouse custom showcase at the Singapore Toys, Comics & Games Convention 2011. I thought it was easy painting a 6.5″ figure but this little Mickey here took me a good 2 weeks to complete! I’m pretty happy how it turned out to be and it sure is an attention grabbing Mickey!

CaramelPOPS Snow Kittens! *Meoaw*

Snow Kittens here was made a long time ago and her painted faceplate was posted on my Flickr some months back. But after which she’s left forgotten on my table for another few months till now. (LOL Evil me…) I was way busy with work and not touched any dolls nor toys for awhile now. So before I go mad from all that corporate work I do in the day time, I think I had better start making dolls/toys/candyart soon!

Well, the reason why Snow Kittens wasn’t done up was because I couldn’t find her the right outfit. I did commission Yukijiro of La Princesa to make her a really cute Kitty Lolita outfit (Oh she was the awesome dolly clothes maker that made Rococo Candy’s outfit as well!) Snow Kittens just didn’t look right even with the Kitty Lolita outfit, thus I went hunting for another. After which I came across this out-of-stock BHC Eskimo outfit on ebay. Then BINGO! That was it! Everything else flowed like a breeze after that, her hair, outfit and accessories came up together nicely. It felt right. I think its important when an artist makes anything, the result, has got to feel right. Shortly after Snow Kitten’s picture was posted on Flickr, someone wanted to adopt her! That made me happy because it shows I did something right. ^__^

CaramelPOPS Cotton Candy!

My very 1st custom Blythe dolly! She was once a simply mango, dismantled her and gave her an entirely new face-up. She has wefted honey-blonde mohair, carved lips and eyechips changed as well. I had a hard time putting her back together (Obviously I’m not very good at this…yet…) But am glad I manage to figure it out in the end!

I was saving this awesome Jojiko outfit for a special dolly custom and it has got to be her. As usual I wanted to keep that pinkish-candy theme. She ain’t perfect but for a 1st time, I think I did pretty ok.
