    Apr 2, 2011, 6:29 AM - Bride of Chucky - Tiffany doll modification WIP #1

    I was so inspired by Detale78's customisation of his Tiffany doll (http://www.therpf.com/f9/spenser-gif...ct-wip-107988/) that I decided to get one for myself and have a go!

    Here is the 24" Spencer's Tiffany doll as it arrived:



    Jacket removed:



    Veil cut from head (it's permanently attached with plastic tags):



    And here she is stripped, shaved, base-painted and with eyes cut out:



    Nails have been repainted since this pic was taken.

    Then on to making it actually LOOK like Tiffany!

    The original doll:



    With veil removed:



    It's just.... bleh! So.....

    Head shaved and eyes cut out:



    As the head is vinyl, once I heated it with boiling water it was really easy to cut out the eyes with a scalpel and open up a big hole in the top of her head to fit the new eyes inside:



    Then a base-coat of skin colour:



    Additional skin shades added (it's not as red looking as it appears with the flash here):



    Lips repainted (again, they're darker than they appear with the flash); beauty spot added back on; eyeshadow, eyeliner and eyebrows painted on and fake eyelashes stuck on and trimmed:



    New glass eyes stuck in place (may adjust the position yet):



    And finally, the new blonde wig placed on to see how it's coming together (this still needs glued down, cut down to size and the hair trimmed):



    And this is the movie version/style I'm going for:



    Still need to paint on the tattoo on her breast, tweak the eyes, tweak the teeth paint, glue and cut the hair and redress her in her wedding dress. I might then alter the leather jacket, but I think I'll probably leave it off - it's pretty poor quality. May make her the choker instead of using the "Tiff" necklace too.

    brilliant work so far, you'd think spencers would have tried a little harder with the finishing on these, but then you wouldn't be having the fun changing it

    Wow, that's fantastic. I'm not a huge Chucky fan, but I always enjoy good doll/toy props.

    That's a huge difference between what you got and your improvements.

    This is looking fantastic! I'd suggest thinning the eyebrow lines to match a little more accurately and I'd get/make new eyes. The ones in the still have MUCH smaller pupils and I think it adds to the creep factor!

    I agree that the pupil size in the eyes is a bit too large, but I'd most likely have to go with getting custom eyes made, and I want to keep costs down on this one, so I'm just going to stick with what I have.

    I thought about dramatically altering the mouth - cutting out the teeth and tongue, sculpting in a new mouth-inside and inserting arcylic teeth - but I decided not to. I agree, it would look better, but again, I'm just going to stick with what I have.

    OK, I'm finished with her now - I hand painted in the heart tattoo on her breast based on close-up screencaps, fixed in the eyes (tryed changing eye position, but didn't work well with these particular oval eyes, so stayed with a straight-ahead gaze), hot-glued down the wig, cut off all the excess (about half the wig!) and gave her hair a trim.

    And done:



    And here's the happy couple:




    Before and after:

    The eyes and wig were from eBay. Looking at about 30 for the wig and eyes combined. The eye shadow was painted on with a brush and Hunbrol enamel paint. I did not remove the initial factory makeup paint job - I just painted skin tone over the top of it.
