Lina Inverse, of Slayers fame.
I decided to do Lina because I spotted this doll:
and I thought, look at those huge 'anime' eyes on Ariel. Ariel is from the Shimmer Princess line, as is the Mulan I used here.
She has an entirely new hand-made costume. Her accents which are not cloth are Kneadatite. All costume pieces are removable except the earrings, headband (sewn to her head), and the gloves (painted to her hands). This includes 3 optional gem pieces, so she can be displayed as she appeared at the beginning or the end of Slayers Next.
The gems are just rhinestones set in Kneadatite. Her boots are Kneadatite on top of a pair of high Barbie boots that used to have flowers on the sides.
Her eyes, lips, and eyebrows are recolored, and I removed the ugly glitter eyeshadow she used to have. I also removed the ends of her eyelashes, which makes her look a little more excited and awake. I'm very pleased with the final effect. Completed Dec 2008
