Gabby's Style

While I still only own just two girls, I want to focus on getting them more and more finished. Donna is coming along neatly. She has a bunch of clothes that I feel content with for now and she should have a custom alpaca wig arriving soon. I still need to find urethane eyes for her, though.

Gabby, however, I don't feel I have come very far with her yet, but I'm sure it'll change during 2018.

I have a Pinterest Board you can see. It's basically just things I find are Gabby alike.

Let's start with the wig. I have been considering this wig from SophyMolly. I feel like it would work for the inner concept I have for Gabby. I will most likely go for a shade of brown, still uncertain if I should go for dark brown or a lighter one. Donna is gonna have red-brown hair, so I don't want Gabby to have the same shade.

For eyes, I have have had ED eyes in mind. Not sure what shade of brown I should go for. I was considering a light brown since I have damned many characters with dark brown eyes xD

For clothes, I will have to commission. I highly doubt many people make tomboy-ish clothes for JID girls. Not that I mind, I think it's worth the hassle to commission people, because you get something that you won't see everyone and their mom have.

I have also been considering getting Gabby tattooed, but I still need to look for ideas. I don't want her concept for tattoos to be too similar to what I had for Connor.
Perhaps I will also add a septum piercing to her face. I need to check if my small rings/loops/whatever they're called are small enough.

  1. That's very interesting. I like tomboy style as well as dansou josei. One of my style icons is Mally from the band exist†trace. The wig you mentioned is really cool, even in blue colour. I can't wait to see Gabby's new appearance!

    1. I'm so much in love with anything androgynous, and breaking gender roles and stereotypes, sometimes even by playing into them, but subverting them slightly.
      I remember exist†trace from my days in the j-rock fandom. They were/are a cool band. :)

  2. I really like the tomboy style for Gabby! And the style of wig would suit her very well! Look forward to seeing her all new later on! <3

    1. Thank you! I think it's important to acknowledge that some stereotypes do exist in the RL world, but showing first of all that these people are people with personality and depths, and also that there are other people in this minority (for in stance Gabby is a tomboy lesbian) who are not like the stereotypes. That why I try not to have only one or two of a minority in my story, because then the minority character has to represent the whole community on it's own. When you have more than one, it's easier showing the diversity of the community. //ramble over xD

  3. Ohhh this is awesome, I like the idea of having a Pinterest board for doll style inspiration! Have you considering getting the tempt tattoos that are sold on Etsy? some can be removed with water, so you would just need to seal the body part, apply the tattoo and seal again!
