I knew about this place before, but I never really “looked”. Shame on me! OMG… what cool stuff they have! From tiny little buckles to studs to thin tooling leather! I needed some buckles for my leprechaun’s hat and came across their site again. Needless to say… I put in an order for more than just buckles 😉

While I was there, I also stumbled across a link to Stevo’s Toys and had another OMG moment. He makes tons of 1/6th guns! Bingo… I found a saw’d off shotgun that’s prefect for Nicole! She’s the mad max themed girl I’ve been working on forever for my son…. hmm, have I showed her off here yet? Hmmm…. maybe… oh well, no harm in repeating myself
I had taken a Jakks body, and put a barbie head on her (with some modifications… contact me if you want the tutorial I used.) Then I made up the pattern for a motorcycle jacket & her snug leather pants. She makes those pants look hot! I’ve also repainted her face and given her a complete reroot as my son wanted her to have dark auburn hair….
I want to tweak her face more… and maybe paint in teeth like Atalanta & Paige. Then I need to cut & wave her hair in a Farrah Fawcett style. My son is suppose to make her a sword whenever he has time… and I needed a saw’d off shotgun She will be cool!
Anyways… enough chat! I should get back to making that top hat! 😀
