Repaint! Skelita Wendigo Custom OOAK Doll Process 웬디고 리페인팅

[INTROMUSIC] 안녕! Welcome to Dollightful and Happy Halloween! This episode’s a little spooky so if you’re one of my younger viewers watch with caution. There are so many great monsters that could be translated into doll form most of which Monster High is covered already but I’m going to create a wendigo. I’ve had this Skelita for a while now, but never felt inspired to do anything with her. To be honest, the sculpting on this doll is so good, she gives me the heebie-jeebies. Props to the sculptor. To start her transformation, I take acetone nail polish and remove her factory paint using Q-tips. [cheerful music] Then using hot water I soften her vinyl head so that it pops off the neck without harming the neck peg. Now it’s time to remove the remains of stubby hair from the inside of the head. Take long needle nose pliers and wriggle them around to tear out the stubble. [cheerful music] It’s kind of a shame her hair was already cut because I want to give my custom black hair. Oh well, I’ll have to reroot it. But before I do, let’s add some antlers. First I mark the placement of the antlers to keep them even. Next take a stiff wire. I’m using kind of a 20 gauge wire. It’s stiff enough where I can sort of bend it with my bare hands but usually use pliers. First cut a length of wire. This parts a guessing game, but better to be too long than short. Mine’s about 10 inches. Using the wire, we’re going to create three bases stemming from the inside of the head. Stab the wire into the head and feed it out through the neck hole. [calm music] Let it sit there while you take the other end of the wire and stab it into the head and through the neck hole as well. [calm music] Pull and adjust the wires until they are about the length of your desired antlers. Keep in mind the length of wire currently inside the head too. Twist the wires together and flatten the knots so that it will rest easily against the inside of the head. Cut off the excess and pull. Now you have this loop that’s going through the head. Insert the third wire. This one doesn’t have to be as long, mine’s about five inches. Twist the end into a flat knot shape. Should look something like this and pull it inside too. Taking two pliers twist all three base wires together. This creates a super strong triangular base capable of taking a lot of abuse. All you have to do now is shape the wire into an armature for your antlers. [calm music] Taking my favorite two-part Epoxie Sculpt I begin to shape the antlers. The first pass is just to fill in the gaps and make a base. On the second pass I begin sculpting details while referencing photos of antlers on my computer. I mostly used a nail file as a tool and got lots of nice gnarled details into the antlers. Spooky! When you’re done, clean up the face with water or more acetone. Time to paint the antlers. I paint the base in a dark color first. Once that’s dry, I brush on a lighter color to pick out the raised details in the sculpt. This technique is called dry brushing. When the paint has fully dried, coat it with a few layers of watered down DuraClear Matte Varnish. I put an extra coat or two on the places I know are more likely to get knocked around. Time for new hair! I’m using a homemade reroot-tool that consists of a needle cut at an angle and inserted into a drill chuck. One by one I plunge small plugs of hair into the head. I go around the hairline first, then work my way inwards towards the part. I wanted to use long black hair to resemble thick natural Native American hair because the wendigos stem from Algonquian Folklore. You might be wondering what to do first. Reroot or antlers? Either way you have to end up working around the other. I prefer rerooting last but pick your poison! Make sure to thicken up the part and around the antlers to complete the reroot. Seal the deal by squirting Fabri-Tac glue in through the neck hole. We want to cover all the plugs on the inside of the skull so that they don’t come out. If you pull some out by accident just shove them back in there. Nobody has to know about it. To tame the voluminous 80s poof pour boiling water over the doll. [calm music] I’m going to make some major modifications to the doll’s body. Thanks to Skelita’s thin mold, I was able to cut through the plastic using a set of pliers. Anything thicker and you’d probably have to use a saw or a power tool. [creepy music] Poor girl’s all in pieces. Time to put her back together, but with a few changes. Using the same armature wire I extended the neck and reconnected the legs giving them a pin. [creepy music] To cover up the changes, I’m going to once again use Apoxy Sculpt to conceal and sculpt some new modifications to match my creepy concept. I’m also filling in the stomach area to give the doll an emaciated look, not a total skeleton. Wendigos are associated with starvation after all. [creepy music] Before the Apoxy is completely dry, I’m going to add some bone-like texture using a rough sponge. And just like the antlers I’m using acrylic paint to conceal the Apoxy and give more interesting color variation to the plastic making it look more realistic. I also sculpted some cool spine details onto the neck, I guess I forgot to film that part. [creepy wind blowing] Since this monster is supposed to be grungy anyway, it’s pretty easy to paint because you don’t have to be careful. [creepy wind blowing] After getting the dolls hair up and out of the way I give both the body and the face a layer or two of Mr. Super Clear and no, I’ve never dropped a doll. Time for the face! I usually don’t make scary projects, but when I do I go all out. That said, I had a lot of fun with this. I took inspiration from the wendigos in the video game Until Dawn (one of my favorite games right now) and also listened to many spooky stories about the monster. The origins of the creature revolve around malicious spirits, winter, starvation and cannibalism. Scary stuff! I must admit that since I learned about the creatures from the video game, I went a little wendigo crazy. [chuckles] I sketched a few versions of how I might reimagine the beast but I digress. Make sure to keep a kneaded eraser nearby at all times. I rely on it frequently during the pastel stages of the face up, especially to shape the eyebrows. I could’ve left the eyebrows off for a more dead and creepy look but this is Monster High after all. I think she’d want her brows to be on point. [creepy music, wind blowing] I drew lots of red raw looking wrinkles to frame each of her wide circular eyes. I put a little extra red pastel on her nose too to imitate the way your nose turns red when you’re out in the cold. [uplifting music] From here on out I’m basically darkening the creases and lightening the wrinkles using a combination of red, brown, black, pink and cream watercolor pencils. For a complete list and explanation of materials, check out my All Materials for Doll Customizing video. [uplifting music] For some added fun, I added a crack to her skull and some spots on her skin. To push the design over the edge, I decided to add white PearlEx powder. I wanted the eyes to look both frosted over and bright at the same time, catching the light in an unnatural way. For the final touch I decided to attempt an open-mouth look by adding thick strokes of acrylic paint to form 3D teeth. I also shaded the lips with a dark pencil to create a fake edge to the lips and further aid the illusion of an open mouth. [uplifting music] After that final layer of Mr. Super Clear I’m using Liquitex High Gloss Varnish to gloss areas of the face. In this case I’m coating both the irises and the teeth to look wet. [cheerful music] Whoo-hoo, that’s it for the face! But before I can pop her head back on, there’s a few more touches I want to add to the body. Using Elmer’s Glue-All Extra Strong Formula I’m going to glue on brushed yarn wefts to create the look of deers fur. You know, the thick hair that hangs off the bottom of the animal’s neck, very aesthetically appealing, I think, and a design element I wanted to include. [cheerful music] I also decided to add a little hair to the legs too. The final step was reassembling her head and masking the neck joint with a few more tufts of brushed yarn. That’s a wrap for this Halloween custom! All the body modifications made this video a little long, but I hope you don’t mind. Make sure to hit that like button and subscribe for more fun doll customs, and I’ll see you in the next- Hey, wait a second. Where’s the wendigo? Huh? You guys wait here for a second I better go find her. Wendigo! Wendigo? [calm and creepy music] [panting] Huh? [quiet panting] [creepy music] Oh, there you are. Over here! [creepy music] EEK! [dramatic music] [panting] [creepy music] [panting] [creepy music] [sobbing] [DUDUN] EEK! Wait, wait, wait! [creepy music] Who knew right? Wendigos like doughnuts more than human flesh! [chuckles] Stay artsy! 안녕!

  45. Mkay. On Sunday night, I awoke to a spider crawling on my arm. The spider was relatively big and it was very fast. I quickly brushed the spider off my arm and got up to grab a flashlight. I turned on my flashlight and pointed it at the spider. It was brown. It was the size of a dollar coin. It's legs were short but also long. It had dark brown patterns on it's body. It was beautiful!! It looked so cute! After I gave it a long ramble of how it was a pervert, I offered my friendship to it. I told it that if it didn't crawl on me, I would be it's friend. I have created a few more rules, and it seems to understand! Am I friends with this spider??

  60. Until dawn is so good, have you heard of the last of us?

  61. I knew it was based on Until Dawn!! Loved that game so much, the wendigo was always something that horrified me, but when my friend told me there was a wendigo in the game I thought it was more like the deer creature but it turned out more like the rake creature. (Which petrified me at the time.) and I freaked out over the whole story with it. xD
    Loved this custom!!❤️❤️

  62. WENDI CHAN!!!!!

  63. I love this

  64. I love Wendigos! I mean- they're cannibals. But I love them

  66. 8:01, why does the last picture of the transformation of a wendigo look like those evil bird creatures from The Dark Crystal?

  94. May you make a cute version? I don't mind if you can or cannot or if you even have time to do it. Its just a idea. If you have time or if you even want to, you can make a cute version of a very scary creature and make it look cute as a doll! Over all, I think that thed old looks VERY cute! Love it!

  95. spooky scary skeletons send shivers down your spine

  96. There was a spooky warning, but how bout the trypophobia warning? Those lil bumps on the antlers made me want to gag
