Some of you might remember Laura, the doll I made for my bff last summer. What some of you might not know is that she is based off of a comic book character. We are totally Marvel Comics junkies. So a few months back I decided I wanted to make some boy dolls and we figured why not make them after comic book characters too?! I'm planning on making four; two for my bff and two for me.
Since I'm a super cool friend I'm making her's first (plus mine are going to require an eye swap and I'm putting that off :P ) and last week I found a good doll at a decent price. I snatched it up and yesterday he arrived!
There is our first look at Sam! This doll will be based off of Sam Guthrie aka Cannonball of the X-Men. Her second doll will be based off of his brother Jay aka Icarus. I'm kind of working from this picture:
|not 616 Sam but it's close enough!|
Sam pre-fixing up is not in terrible shape.
Otherwise his face is in really good condition.
His only major problem is a lazy eye.
The left arm has a few scratches but nothing too bad.
There is quite a bit of dirt on his legs too but it should all come off easily.
He has another pink spot on his inner hip joint.
Anyway, I've already ordered his new wig from Monique Trading Corp. It this one:
ETA Where I got the wig. Fail me!
