Hi! I use Neutrogena Anti-Residue shampoo to clean dolls. It works well removing the dirt and oil from the resin.
I also use this shampoo to clean doll clothes and antique fabrics. It’s something I learned from a woman who restores antique dolls. ;)
I photographed my Unoa couple today. They dress as if they fell out of a JRPG. I selected colours of their eyes, wigs and clothes to match… it makes taking couple photos easier to colour balance. Haha!

After my cosplay photo shoot today, for fun I dressed up as my doll No.15
Mosquitoes swarmed my face and I was constantly flailing about like an idiot and tripping over branches. It was magical.
No.15 is a Volks SD13 Nana
We are both wearing DollHeart Black Fer.
I found the snapshot I took of Aldous when he first arrived. I almost forgot what a mess he was before! XD
I don’t know what sealant was used on him previously, but it was very shiny and turned into a thick, black goop when I tried to wipe it off. The eye opening mod was pretty rough and he still has a deep gouge I couldn’t buff out. It looks like a scar, but I try to hide it behind his wig if I can. ;)

Today I had a lot of people asking me how I made my lightweight giant cosplay sword. It was taller than me, but light enough to be held aloft in dramatic poses with one tiny-lady-hand.
Here is my progress; it was my first time making a cosplay sword, so I winged it using experience from making other props and art.
Give it a try if you think it might work for you. :)
