Doll brain surgery, plus Z madness



"I'm afraid it's Dolliehitis, there's no cure. Stay away from cardboard boxes."

Z sent this. Along with the caption. I laughed basically until I fell off the couch.

And, gives me an excuse to post.

(BTW, this is (I assume?) based on a screen cap from the show, so you can kinda see my frustration in trying to match up eye color: EVERYBODY FREAKING SQUINTS! I mean, do they think they're all Clint Eastwood or something?)



This is in case you wondering what I've been wasting the weekend doing....

Doll brain surgery

This is what it looks like when you tug off the wig (I usually use a butter knife) and successfully unscrew the leetle screws and open up a doll head. Notice how there's ziplocs everywhere? I use 'em to catch the teensy screws.

Ewww, dollieh head!

And looking down into the front of the face. Notice how the eyelids just sort of sit in there, and aren't really hooked in? This can be very frustrating when you're trying to line everything back up so you can close the head. You can also see one of the eensy teensy springs that you have to catch (i usually use tweezers) and put back so the eyes can wink.

If this were a Super Dollfie, you'd get the putty and stick in new eyes be done. But Pullips have this cool mechanism so you can make the eyes go from side to side and wink.

This is looking at the front of the mechanism. Those are the eyes, which have already had the eyechips poked out (I just use a screwdriver).

Here's some old eyechips.

Tip: this is a LOT easier if you don't have a migraine headache.

I might go shopping for Nathan Explosion clothes later.

I love Z so hard, she has a wonderful sense of humor!

Whose head was this that you were working on, Nathan's?

Oh, gahd, teh funnieh. *stomach hurts*

This was actually an anonymous female doll I had lying around. They have slightly different head molds from the guys, and, as it turns out, slightly different eye mechs, so you can't do transplantation surgery between boy and girl dolls! I dunno, maybe I'll give here a grey wig and make her a gmilf for Skwisgaar. :D

Or put a hood on her head and she could be from the Female Online Division. :D
