Thought I'd share my creative process. I don't pre-create OCs. I actually let the doll in my hand tell me what it wants to be! I then lightly research the monster/mythical creature's parentage and go from there. I don't believe in strict interpretations; I mean if I did, I couldn't accept that Draculaura is pink! Ha! I love to take the stories and the myths and the legends and even some of the pop culture and let it help define my OCs.

One of the most interesting things I've seen as a customizer is that many people can have the same "idea" but different interpretations. It's just wonderful! I'd love to hear how others come up with their OCs. Are you inspired by the doll. Movies you love? Drawings? Hair you have on hand? Let me know! =)

I am a lover of all things C-U-T-E! I have a passion for Monster High dolls in general and love to re-create them. I also enjoy taking pictures of my recreations and Mattel's original dolls.

I have a shop on Etsy where I offer my dolls and other creations to good homes. ;)

I do take commissions if you are interested.

I just spent some time going through your entire gallery after I saw a picture of one of your custom dolls on Tumblr. You're incredibly talented and creative. You've made some really unique and simply amazing dolls. I'm definitely following you because (despite my unwillingness to actually invest in my own collection of Monster High dolls) I found the original MH dolls to be beautiful and yours just straight up push the boundary. Keep making your beautiful creations and have a lovely day!

Hey I was wondering how you get your dolls skin so perfect? :) Do you use spray paint? I'm working on making my own right now and I need all the help I can get.
