Simon - head progress pics by scargeear Simon - head progress pics by scargeear
I made this custom BJD doll head because there was no option to order a desired head. I had Sephiroth from FFVII in mind, and though there were 4 Minimee group orders I felt that this is not what I need. The Minimee quality is a total fail IMHO - rough casts and total asymmetry.

So I made the head by myself. I'm not a professional artist so it was a hard task))

Material: Apoxie Sculpt. Time spent: roughly 3 weeks, and then some occasional refining here and there.

You can see progress pics here, from the point I started making photos to the final result with wig and makeup.

Thank you so much! I agree with you: Square Enix gave their character one of the most beautiful noses ever. My job was just to sculpt it properly:la:

And I wish I had his HAIR!! Even short it's better than the coarse, thick, brunette SWEATER I got growin' on my head! Srsly! For every 1 hair you have, I have 12. I swear!! *dies of heat stroke*

Oh, dear! Every kind of hair is beautiful))) I have a very thin hair but I don't give a shit and appreciate what I have. Thick hair is great, you may do those intricate towers or thick braids :)

Nope. Can't do much with my hair. I have a living sweater with a mind of it's own. and 3 cowlicks. one in front and two on the crown of my head. they don't help at ALL!!!

May I ask how long does it take you to make one of your dolls and what's the average size of them?

The time could be drastically different, and it all depends on the tasks. I made 2 heads, and though the result is pretty similar the technologies are different, the time spent differs too. Full dolls took 5 months (Manuna) and 20 months (Ascker) to complete. Manuna is tiny (11 cm high) and Ascker id SD (60 cm high). As you may see my works are too versatile to make generalizations((

I dunno how I do this, really! Each time I finish a doll I think: is it really my creation?))
I'm sorry, doing this on commissions is not an option for me now.

Simon is my orignal character. He lives "here and now" and could be my friend if he was a human. Simon likes to cosplay Sephiroth very much.
Hope it makes any sense)) I have a more detailed info on him written down, but it's only in Russian.
