Hi, this is my first post and I was wondering if I could get some help from you guys! I have an OC that I've created for MH but I am trying to figure out how to execute it in doll form. I'm still working on the story behind my Oc but she's a troll and she's sensitive to sunlight. The first picture is of my drawing of her. The second picture is the doll I am thinking of using to make her, I'm nervous to use Abbey though because I'm afraid my Oc is gonna look like a marysue. Any suggestions?


I finally got both pictures on haha, they are reversed but still what I wanted to show.


Now I have a colored OC picture.

I think Abbey would be a good doll to use.  Based on your drawing, your OC and Abbey have a similar facial structure.  I don't think she will look like a mary-sue.  The only thing is you will have to add horns and a tail.  I've heard of people doing this with clay, but I don't know how well it would work.  For the tail, you could search around eBay is see if anyone is selling a spare tail from one of the cat dolls.  You may be able to attach it to Abbey.  You'd have to paint it though, so be prepared for that.

Are there any specific questions you have about doing a custom MH doll?

Abbey is arguably the best mold to start a troll girl on. Don't bother taking her glitter off, just cover the body in automotive vinyl dye the color you want your OC to be, the little bits of glitter may give her skin a slight texture, which would be awesome for a troll. Use the right adhesion promoters for the soft vinyl head and hard plastic bodies and apply the dye in two or three light coats, and you'll find yourself with a doll that looks like Abbey, but without the blue sparkly skin. :3

After messing around with the colors of my OC I think I've decided to use a Clawdeen doll and do a reroot. I'd rather reroot than do a whole body paint, though both make me nervous. This way I'll just have to make the horns and get a tail, or possibly make one as well, we will see. I have some questions about face ups. I'd like to do a water color pencils face and I was wondering what pencils to use. I'm trying to do this on a budget and I know it's going to take a long time but I'd like to actually have a plan.

Thanks for the comments already, they helped me decided to switch dolls which I think will work out better in the end.

That's probably a good decision.  A full repaint is a pain.  I just did two and I don't plan on doing any more.

I use Derwent watercolor pencils.  They aren't the cheapest, but they are high quality, which matters when doing face-ups.  I think you can get a set of 24 for $20 on Amazon though, and that comes with a nice selection of colors.  I really like them, and I know a lot of professional face-up artists use them too.  I here another good brand is Primsacolor, but I've never used their watercolor pencils.  I think they cost about the same as Derwent and are of the same quality.
