STOCK BOX Repaint! Nova Galaxy Custom OOAK Doll

STOCK BOX Repaint! Nova Galaxy Custom OOAK Doll

Annyong! Welcome to Dollightful! This is only the second episode in the stock box series, but, oh man, this one’s kinda crazy guys! I debated even finishing up and posting this video, but, I figured I might as well. Last time you voted on a theme, and galaxy won by a landslide! So to the stock box we go! Who could we use this time? Or rather, what parts could we use? I thought it’d be fun to combine a bunch of random pieces I have into a finished character. So we might as well use this Frankie body, who has Abbey’s hands for some reason. Actually, I think Frankie’s head went to Leafeon, and Abbey’s body went to Glaceon. For a head I’ll be using this decapitated Bunny Blanc! These are some pretty random pieces all right! So let’s see what we can make of it. Something to note about this Frankie, you can tell this was an early doll, back when they used elastic at the hip joints instead of plastic joints. Just an interesting note about their early construction, the plastic joints work way better. We’re going to paint this doll from head to toe, and I think I want her to show a lot of skin, so we’re going to sand off the molded panties. Honestly I don’t like molded clothes of any kind on a doll, especially dolls with such beautiful sculpting like Monster High, it cheapens it somehow. So, take a razor, or box-cutter, to slice away the majority of the raised texture, then come back with a fine-grain of sandpaper to smooth out the surface. It looks pretty awkward, but twist those legs around to get the best angles! There we go! Beautiful. Now for the fun part! Painting the doll! I grabbed some bright beautiful acrylic colors, including red apparently. Prepared them on a palate, added a fair amount water, and started painting. I suggest working on one body part at a time, so you can work while the paint is wet. I add a blob of color one, then a watery blob of color two, and watch the magic happen. I was inspired by the stunning, colorful, Hubble Telescope images we all know and love. Parts of the doll do remind me of those egg dye kits you can do around Easter though. This was so much fun, I might have gotten a little carried away even. Even if you don’t want to do this on a doll, I suggest getting out your paints, and just doing it on a canvas or something. It’s really easy, and fast, and looks amazing, so, I highly suggest it! Kind of therapeutic too. For the time being, I think I’ll keep Bunny’s cute, white bob. So I tuck it out of the way, before removing her factory paint with Acetone. Then it’s the same story. Whee~~ I did try harder to control the flow of colors on her face, and I think that was a mistake. If you let the colors, “do their own thing,” and swirl around, it generally ends up much prettier. Take the back of her head for example, all the cool stuff happened in the back, where I wasn’t even trying! [Chuckles] Let’s make this look more like a galaxy, by painting on the stars! Taking a tiny brush, and white paint, I dab on tiny dots. Some bigger, some smaller. I started out with real constellations, like Orion here. Then the Big Dipper, up on her shoulder, and then I wanted to make up my own! Like this heart on her booty! A diamond on her foot, and this great, celestial Pikachu! The whole I painted on her, I tried to keep the doll on a squishy surface, as not to scratch, or rub off the body paint. Acrylic will stick to the squishy vinyl head no problem, but hard plastic, like the body, wants to shed acrylic paint. So seal it in and convince it to stay in place with some matte varnish. I mix it half with water in an attempt to keep it matte when it dries, but no matter what I do, it always ends up glossy these days! It’s like the only time I got the ratio perfect, was in my very first custom video, and, I’ve failed to recreate that effect ever since! Nevertheless, let’s give the body three coats, to protect the galaxy~ Faceup time! Pastels basically did nothing, so let’s do this whole thing in acrylic paint! No watercolor pencils this time, so something a bit different for me. Let’s start with establishing a base for the eyes, by filling in the whites. While I have the white mixed up, I thought white lips might look cool too. Since her skin is so busy and colorful, I felt the face needed to be simple. Next is the iris shape, decided to go with a light blue. With a slightly darker blue shade, add definition around the iris’s edge. Taking a dark purple we can paint in the, “eye line.” Using a tiny brush I try to stroke the paint, delicately from the corner, out to the wing. Next are the “eye creases,” these tend to be the thinnest lines on a faceup for me, which makes doing this with a brush (instead of a sharp pencil,) all the more challenging. But if you can get a good angle on the head, and hold your breath! It can be done! Lastly: The eyebrows. I was going to do white here too, but something told me they should be dark purple I hesitantly dot on where I want the eyebrows to start, taking note about the distance from the corner of the eyes, then go for it and hope it works out! If you don’t like it, work fast, and remove the acrylic with some water. For highlights, I mix a mint green for the left side of her face, and a pink for her right side. Paint these highlights under the eyebrows edge, on the lids, and around the inner corners of the eyes, for subtle definition. ~Sparkle time!~ We’ve got: Pearl Ex powders, glitter, and nail art glitters to work with. Stroke a small dab of glue over the iris, and dab on the glitter. For the eyeshines, we’re going to place on a star shaped glitter much like Charlotte Copperchain had. I forgot to add eyelashes until now so let’s do that! And then add flecks of white stars over her whole face. “Beautiful and mysterious,” was the expression I intended to give her, but Bunny’s adorable, smile-y mold, makes her look much more friendly than mysterious. So… not sure this is working for a ‘Celestial Goddess’ character Let’s pop her head back on and take a look. Along with the cute face, the hairstyle is also adorable, which doesn’t lend to the ‘Celestial Goddess’ feeling at all Also its a warm white now that I look at it, let’s replace it after all. Using these materials I create a sewn wig for the doll That’s an entire tutorial within itself, so check out this tutorial of mine, back when I said “Annyong!” a little too enthusiastically. The wig I made is a deep mysterious purple, with some lovely magenta streaks. Although, on the actual doll, the magenta and red don’t look great together do they? We can save anything with more glitter right? Taking some gems and rhinestones from Hobby Lobby and craft shops I hot glue, and regular glue, details to the wig achieving a sort of, “crown look.” It gave me “Belly dancer” vibes, and I started to think about how a belly dancer outfit, would work well to show off her skin. So let’s turn to the clothes. I’ve mentioned Walkercolours many times now for her shoe tutorials, but did you know she also makes the cutest little doll lingerie I’ve ever seen? So following her tutorial I created the tiniest bra in existence, using: white cotton fabric, glue, a little lace detailing, threads for a criss-cross strap, and finished it off with rhinestones and silver chains, for some Belly dancing bling! For a skirt, I start off by gathering a strip of tulle, and attaching it to a waistband Tiny doll skirts don’t have the “weight,” to keep them down and in place, so attach a small ribbon around the crotch, to make sure it won’t ride up. Next I have this cool fringe left over from lining a shawl of mine I thought it looked Belly dancer-ish as well, so I sewed that on, added some more jewels and chains, and…. hmm…. well… Is this working? Maybe the fringe is too much. It’s a little visually busy. Hmm… A little better I guess. Maybe panties instead, so we can see her legs? But that makes her some kind of, “Celestial Lingerie Model” character? What even is this doll?? How about a short and simple dress? No the ‘poofy’ shape doesn’t suit her Maybe a tight-fitting knit dress would be more elegant? Uhhh… Let’s move on to the shoes.. First take your medium of choice, whether it’s clay or apoxie, and form the base of the shoe. I thought a star shape on the heel would look cute, but it ended up looking like a starfish. Whoops! Next use a thin 1/16” sized elastic, and loop it around your dolls heel. It should be stretchy enough to slip off over the heel. Sew two of these small loops together. 1/8” elastic also looks cute! Take the loops and sew them inside a strip of ribbon, this will be the back heel of the shoe. Glue this ribbon on the shoe base while it’s on the mannequins foot, then attach a ribbon near the toe, loop it over the foot, and mark where it should be glued. Note that a little loose is better than too snug. Cut out a sole shaped bit of fabric, and cover the sole. Paint the base to match, -it took me two or three coats of paint,- and lastly to cover up this unsightly gap between sole and base, let’s glue on a length of string Not bad! Okay, so this is what we have! Yeah… I like a lot of separate elements of this doll, but nothing is working together. I spent and entire two days away from this project, to do other things and take my mind off of it, and when I came back I finally realized, how much I dislike her. I was fooling myself up to this point, like, “It’ll be fine, I’ll figure it out!” But, nope! Hot mess! I knew she needed tons of revisions, but I wasn’t sure what it would take to make her look good! So I did a bunch of the revision process off camera. The first thing I did was cover all the red on her body, with lilac instead. Giving her a more stable color pallet of cool pastels I also changed her white lips to dark purple, Although it’s less ‘contrast-y’ and therefore a little harder to see, it gives her a ‘Pastel Goth’ vibe that I like. Lastly I painted three layers of Glow-in-the-dark paint over her eyes. I decided to scrap the wig completely, and make a new one out of this totally awesome, Glow-in-the-dark hair from TheDollPlanet. It’s a glued wig cap version instead of sewn this time, partly because the fibers of this hair are more delicate, and partly because I was getting impatient! The purples and magentas of the original wig, and all the crown-like details, just didn’t complement the galaxy skin somehow. Still don’t know what to do with the clothes, so I dug up a couple cute numbers, from store-bought dolls I’ve collected over the years, for a little fashion show! My favorite items were Avea Trotter’s wings, and River Styxx’s cloak. The wings were kind of small, so I made a bigger, jointed pair, out of black paper and wire. Thinking it would giver her a cool, and dramatic silhouette But they ended up looking bulky, and kind of ‘crafts-y ‘ So forget those! And back to Avea’s wings instead! Using wire and Epoxy sculpt, I extended the wings, so that they’ll be visible from the front, around the dolls’ big cloak and hair. I set a snap into the Epoxy while it was still wet, and the other end of the snap into the dolls’ back. This was a great idea, and I’ll probably try it again sometime, but the snap I used was too small, and weak to stay attached, unfortunately So I got a bit fed-up and hot glued it in place. Going off the cape she now has, a staff-weapon seemed suitable, so using a chopstick and wire I cooked up, a simple fantasy-themed staff I tied thread into a star shape to echo the design of the bra. That’s where I draw the line and say she’s finished! I’m still not completely satisfied, but I think she’s a definite step-up from stage one! After a Skype call with my family, we all agreed she looked best in the nude, to show off the galaxy painting, and that clothing cheapened the, “Celestial Goddess” vibe I was shooting for. Of course I’ll save the wig, and all the clothes I made. Maybe I can use them on a future custom! How funny that this doll was such a struggle, in stark contrast to Macaroon, the first doll of this series. It’s a great example really, Sometimes going in without a plan means, your mind is clear, and uninhibited by overthinking a design. So you whip up a great doll on your first try thanks to instinct. And sometimes going in without a plan means, you waste a lot of time re-working mistakes, and getting frustrated with the failure, because you are “winging” it after all I considered not posting this video because, from a tutorial standpoint, it does a pretty crumby job. But I thought you’d still find it entertaining, and if nothing else, know that it’s okay to make mistakes with your artwork I make tons of mistakes, and it’s just how we learn! The experimental parts of this doll were the most fun, playing with marbled acrylics, using only acrylics and no Mr. Super Clear to paint the face, and coming up with a removable wing method, which I can improve upon in the future. Although I got a bit fed-up with her towards the end, she’s not a bad doll! In fact, I think she looks pretty cool now! It’s hard not to look cool when your hair glows in the dark! Still, I can’t help but feel she’s missing, *something* in her design to make her feel, fully complete. So, if you know what that something is, leave a comment! We’re going to name her Nova, after Supernova, which is an event that occurs at the end of a stars life, whose dramatic and catastrophic destruction, is marked by one final titanic explosion! Yeah, that basically sums it up. Don’t forget to click that icon in the corner, to cast your vote, for the next stock box dolls’ theme! Hopefully executed a little better than this one… And subscribe if you haven’t already, so that you never miss a custom! Our toy-loving community has a lot of fun! Stay artsy! Annyong~! Oh no! It’s happening! There’s no saving her now! [Explosion] [Wilhelm scream] [Laughter]

  3. I liked the frist wig

  4. Please make a doll that illustrates your personality

  5. Who thinks she should make a doll with two different Color eyes?

  6. Can you do a face reveal if you get 5 million subs?

  7. Yaaaaaaa i love your YouTube channel

  8. Jut my opinion no hate i l-o-v-e LOVE your channel!!! But, i HATE when people add re to galaxy it makes it look bad.

  9. she should make a series of youtuber dolls like pewdiepie,simply nailogical ect ect

  10. If the sun is a star, does that mean one day it will explode????? Please tell me it won’t…. or at least not in a while… I woke up and just thought of it.

  11. The whole time I was just thinking when is she gonna redo like literally everything

  12. She made so many clothes. Just to end up not using them. Hopefully she uses them in a future project.

  13. A pink would have looked great rather than the red

  14. I think it would be great if the stars on her body glowed in the dark as well, along with the orb on her staff

  15. it need a dress

  16. Annyeong! I love your channel. I’m learning Korean, any tips?

  17. Noooooo I would of taken it if you put da first outfit on noooo I love it though

  18. A crown, and maybe a celestial looking veil. I am thinking black or purple.

  19. Me: supposed to be studying for test

    Also me: watching a woman create mini lingerie for a doll

  20. if it were me I'd put her in a silver satin dress that's shorter at the front and then ends in a trail at the back, perhaps adding some glitter pieces at the end of the train. I'd have the top part be a halter neck with more glitter. I like the skin the second time around but I didn't understand why you went with red the first time around.

  21. I tried to make a doll and I had 50 mistakes. Yes I counted

  22. Beautiful UwU

  23. why would you put red i-

    from nyx video and anamida (amanida?) video

  24. maybe black clouthing

  25. Can we copy your work for a comic pls

  26. I think the thing you're missing is shoes, like those ones you did before in her original design. I feel if you paint it black fading to blue, it could compliment the wings and bring your attention to the whole body, and not just the top. That will also draw your attention to the skin, which is such a great aspect of her design. Hopefully you see this, but you probably wont. I just wanted to share my opinion to you (:

  27. Fare thim

  28. Make a doll from the zodiac for each season of each zodiac

  29. I don't know you did her eye liner! I can barely do eye liner on myself! HOW!? Oh yea btw even if she doesn't look mysterious, she is adorable either way so yea you did a great job!👍also the red looks cute too. To be honest you shouldn't even have said there were mistakes in the video cause this doll turned out ADORABLE!

  30. You did an amazing job this is my first time seeing you make mso many mistake but you totally are the greatest…
    The 5th cloth is cute

  31. i think she would look good with pixie ears!!!!?????

  32. MISTAKE #1 RED

  33. Don't. Won't. Too

  34. I love the lilac and light blue with the white hair. With the gems on her forehead and just some wings, she is serving celestial goddess. Who says Goddesses need clothes anyway? Haha

  35. Nova: breathe
    Video montage: mIsTaKEs N° 578357

  36. So many mistakes! Tell me if you agree

  37. Nobody

    Dollightful “let’s paint it red!”

  38. Maybe you could really do an oriental style belly dancer doll 😄

  39. My name is nova!

  40. I think that you would need to add body mods to make her body look more realistic since she is nude and maybe make her eye thinner to make her look more mysterious.

  41. I love nova but I feel that she needs clothes or something to wear

  42. This one ended up absolutely beautiful

  43. I think you should've Had done full white eyes, not sure why, though I think it might look better!

  44. I am still shak8ng I was watching really scary videos even though I knew I would get nightmares but this video helped a lot

  45. Actually the white bob fitted the red face very well. Even she wasn't mysterious. Cute looked good too. Not all galaxy characters must be mysterious. She sort of reminded me of Earth-chan.

  46. 2:43

  47. I know why it dry glossy it's because you add water to it

  48. maybe a crown or a laural crown for her

  49. Keep the crown

  50. if you put to much water on acrilyc paint the colors won't build up at all

  51. The only thing missing is you liking her

  52. I'm not sure if you still read these comments, but i think adding glow in the dark paint to the stars on her body would be a great way the help bring out that celestial being feel. She look amazing btw!

  53. Ayyyyye I study Orion!!!!!

    And also……..Above all art should be fun
    -Alxezader Calder

  54. U should have added white freckles on her

  55. So I was thinking, maybe the constellations on her body in glow in the dark would be cool

    Just a suggestion

  56. Me and my sister always watch the videos but never really do it

  57. I didn't like the doll tbh :/


  59. Make a friend for nova

  60. I think a minimal chain bodysuit would look phenomenal while still showing her body detail it could add that little bit of detail that you feel is missing?

  61. She needs a sheer toga. I think that would look really pretty with her celestial goddess design.

  62. I have to agree, she is missing something. She is beautiful, hmmm. My first initial thought maybe to add horns but then thinking she's celestial maybe a halo. Also if you did wanted some sort of outfit I would have said maybe a swimsuit (not bikini) – it covers her but also with a design you can still show off her body. But those are ideas, I couldn't do something like this, I'm just fascinated by how you do it!!

  63. This video shows live footage of god making me
    Minus the end result and happy ending

  64. 𝚆𝚎𝚕𝚕 𝚖𝚊𝚢𝚋𝚎 𝚢𝚘𝚞 𝚌𝚊𝚗 𝚌𝚊𝚕𝚕 𝚑𝚎𝚛 𝚗𝚘𝚟𝚊 𝚝𝚑𝚎 𝚐𝚊𝚕𝚊𝚡𝚕𝚢 𝚙𝚛𝚒𝚗𝚌𝚎𝚜𝚜

  65. Love your videos your so talented I wish I had that much talent lol! I support you❤️❤️❤️

  66. to help the glossy matte sealer you could try dipping your brush in strait sealant, then dip it in water 2 or 3 times i also segust doing his on an experimental doll. I wouldn't want to ruin your paint job

  67. The red was the only mistake lol if you are making the whole doll with cold colors then why you choosed red lmao

  68. I liked the first one too☹️

  69. g l o w h a i r y e s

  70. May I suggest something for the sanding? When sanding smaller areas that are harder to access, sanding tools that are like sticks work pretty well for it. These are often used for painting miniatures for games like Warhammer 40k.

  71. Dollightful: If u know what that something is missing, pls comment it out

  72. me watching at the end
    Wait, this supposed to be a tutorial?

  73. she needs clothes

  74. I love the end result! And I really appreciate that you showed all the mistakes and changes you made along the way!

  75. Girl really haaa a belly dancer 😁😂OMG

  76. So many mistakes in the clothes 😁😂

  77. For some reason I want to see a dollightful and a simply nailogical video !! Am I the only 1 ?!

  78. MISTAKE #10
    Nova echos: "Why must you do this to me?"

  79. As you read the definition of supernova:
    "Only red supergiants and other massive stars explode and leave a star nursery behind."
    "The noobs."
    BTW I have a book about space that is 110 pages long not including the 94 pages of space exploration, constellations, and reference.

  80. She doesnt really feel like a custom… TBh she just feels like a big sister to River Styxx

  81. She can have a galaxy boyfriend bcz she needs to have someone like a kid so wjen the kid grows up she will rule the galaxy bcz novenwill be dead!

  82. Many mistakes….

  83. soo..
    Matte Varnish is..
    the guardian of the galaxy?

  84. 1:12

    So I’m not the only one that gets triggered by it

  85. Dollightfull: “ I’m getting impatient!”

    Me: heavy breathing w-what did you just say…

  86. unpopular opinion: she rocked the red. i'm on wild color palette phase right now and i think it was really cool.

  87. Please do a zodiac sign series I’d love to see it also if you see this please like if you dislike you do not wanna see the zodiac
    👇🏻. 👇🏻

  88. “Then it’s the same story wEeEeEeEeEeEe”

  93. Her face looks like todoroki

  94. "then the big dipper-"
    GrAVitY fAlLs???

  95. When you added that red I was. Shook.

  96. 12:56
    That actually looks nice, just my opinion btw.

  97. hey i was wondering do you think you could do a stock box episode with a barbie? i’m interested but it’s hard to find MH dolls now as the design has changed. care to take the challenge? 💕🖤

  98. I have the same freckle
