Introducing the lovely Absynthe... a custom Skelita repaint!

Hi Everyone,

Just finished my latest girl... and so excited to finally try repainting a Skelita Calaveras in the Monster High range.  She has the most amazing body... a full on skeleton that is... and I loved shading it to give it more realism.  She is definitely not the easiest sculpt to paint. She has the biggest eyes I've seen on a doll and I toned the size down as much as I could (realistically) but they are still quite large. Check the before/after photo and you'll see how large they are in their original factory state.  Still, as hard as she was to paint... I do love a challenge and I think she turned out quite pretty and totally unique!  I know I could have repainted her in the Dia de Los Muertos style but I really wanted to give her a soft, sweet look... and her own unique personality. So I decided to paint her just like I would any other young lady... to look beautiful!  I'm so happy with her... I hope you will be too. Check her ebay link below if you would like to see more photos or interested in purchase.
