I made little horns for my own ball joint dolls and thought people might like them!

These little 2 1/2” long horns are cast in translucent glow in the dark urethane and hand painted to have a lovely color fade so just the tips glow. These have been made to fit my Littlefee head but can fit most ball jointed doll heads. They will come with magnets but they will NOT be installed! I’m not gluing them in so that you can make sure the magnets align correctly to dolls who have magnets in their head already. I will include two pairs of magnets for the horns ( extra magnet to be able to stick through wigs)  and one extra pair if you need to mod the head to accept magnets. They can be glued in with epoxy.


Each horn glows purple in the dark! Please charge with exposure to UV ( daylight or blacklight) to get the horns tips to glow bright! Horns are sealed with several layers of clear coat.


Please choose purple hue or brown hue. Ready to ship!

a drawing made for the pure purpose of testing a new workflow with the cintiq. i want to be able to draw standing up so i had to engage in a good drawing session to figure out which shortcuts were best to program in! 


Saw my all time favourite dress. Great opportunity to shoot some close-ups!

I got back from my training weekend and since more than a few people seem interested in garage kits I sorted through the bajillion resin parts— came up with 18 complete Iphigenia kits with parts I consider workable, although they will require a LOT of work, whether it’s cutting or sanding or drilling or additive work with epoxy, as not all the colors even match. (see rather depressing photo.) This is not an easy garage kit, it is definitely not for beginners, and I advise anyone who takes me up on this to please, please, please outfit yourself with a good respirator and ventilation system before tackling this bad boy. The above photo is fairly representative of what you can expect from any one of the kits, except that the parts might match in color more or less.

They will be $50, 1/4 the original price, and this does not include shipping; I hope very much that this is reasonable. I will not ship outside the US, sorry— I lose too much money on fees.

I am making nothing from this, every penny will go towards refunds. Even if you’re not interested I would greatly greatly appreciate a signal boost— I would like nothing more than to refund my customers as quickly as humanly possible, and between this and my actual real life job, this is all I can do.

I’ll contact those of you who have specifically expressed an interest soon (or you can PM me again), otherwise thank you so much for taking a gander. I’m also trying to figure out how to make some of the decent heads into pendants (please let me know if you would be interested in those instead!) there were a surprising number of ok-looking extra heads after I put the kits together. No right knees though, and a surprising lack of right shins…

This lovely artist got screwed really hard by a casting company that, as you can see, didn’t deliver (which is about the mildest way I can put it.)  

She has been incredibly ethical and conscientious about making sure that everyone who ordered a doll gets a refund — but it’s all coming out of her pocket.  

If you’re a garage-kit person with the tools/skills to build kits that start off rough, this is an amazing deal on a lovely articulated ball-jointed resin doll — check out art-iculated’s Tumblr to see what she looks like in complete form.
