Boy's Dorm Room Pics

Here is more pics of the new boys dorm room at Skull Academy. 

before


after


The only big change is the new bunk bed. Moved Vampiro's bed to the other side and 
had to remove the ottoman. 

Oh and I almost forgot, the new bedspreads. I wanted to get the same
fabric as the before picture, I love the skull heads, but I could not find the fabric anywhere or 
anything similarr, the mustache fabric were actually bandanas.

Dorm Room Makeover

Hello everyone, have you seen the new boys dorm room, I changed the wallpaper, you can see in the 'before' pictures why I did it. I used shelf paper for the walls, bad idea, I didn't glue it, I just used the adhesive behind the paper but didn't turn out so good. 

before



I removed the shelf paper and glued on wallpaper, looks so much better now.
The dorm room will have more changes, I'm building a new bunk bed because
new students are moving into the boy's dorm room. I will post the new pictures
once the room is done.

Dollhouse Materials

Hey everyone, I am excited about starting my new projects in the new year. Two dollhouses, one for a Monster High doll Family and the other for a Barbie family. They are going to be the backdrop of a new show we're creating, a spin-off of Skull Academy. The Monster High doll house will be dark and scary, the barbie house will be pretty and bright. Not sure if I will work on both at the same time, or do one at a time. I guess I'll see how I feel when I start. I am entering both houses in the Undersized Urbanite dollhouse contest due in May 2014. Five months should be plenty of time to finish. If you want to check out their website or join yourself check out the link on the right hand side of this page.

If you want to follow along and make your own dollhouse, follow us here for progress pictures. I will list tell you what you need so you can start collecting materials before January. Christmas is a great time to find items, from your present package...so before you throw it away, look at it and decide if you can use it to build your dollhouse.

For the base boxes I like to buy new ones, you can buy boxes at a moving or packaging company.
Check our yellow page listings for ones near you... the bigger box 24 x 15 x 15 cost be just over $2
and the smaller one 15 x 15 x 15 cost me just over $1.



Collect lots of scrap pieces of cardboard for layering. Layering the cardboard
is one of the most important steps to make it strong and durable. You can 
also find cardboard boxes at your grocery store or ask stores if you can 
go through their recyclables. The packaging company I go to lets me
go through all their recyclable cardboard and take what I need for free!



Styrofoam...you can find styrofoam in a lot of gift packages.


Gift-wrap paper rolls, perfect for adding support to the dollhouse, plus
one of the houses, I will be creating another spiral staircase...the roll
is perfect for the stairs. 

You will also need lots of glue...
paint, scrap paper or gift wrap paper for decorating etc...

If you have any questions, just leave a comment here and I will
reply as soon as I can.

Thank you for visiting and I would like to 
welcome our new subscribers
and friends.

Dress Transformation for Rochelle's Big Date

Rochelle's Dress Makeover
Hey everyone, I just finished working on Rochelle's new dress for the big date scene at Lola's Bistro. The new episode of Skull Academy will be premiering the dress but I wanted to give our blog subscribers a sneak peak. 

before


Here is the before picture of the dress, I'm not sure if it came
with a bratz or barbie doll, but it was too big for Monster High doll
Rochelle Goyle.


I have very little experience with sewing...so its not perfect. I removed
the old velcro, only one side....


I sewed on another piece of velcro, after folding the piece of
fabric together to make it smaller, I didn't have white so 
I used black velcro.  



after


I also removed the ribbon belt and made a new one using leather pieces.
The straps are also leather.


I added a little bling to the belt and velcro, its not attached
to the dress so Rochelle can wear it with other outfits.




The back is a bit messy but it still works...I'll have to make sure you only
see the front of the dress on the show :)


I also added more tulle because the dress was just too short. 


 
 


Do you like Rochelle's dress, tell us what you think 
by commenting on this post.
  

Thank you for passing by, before you leave, please vote for our site for top 100 doll sites. Just click on the barbie on the right side of this page.

Thank you
