Menu of services

Neo Hair

- $170 labor for a mohair or alpaca reroot. If you purchase fiber from my stash I will charge you my cost, which varies on the supplier I purchased it from. Labor is the same for a synthetic (saran or nylon) reroot, plus the cost of the fiber itself.
- $5 for hair removal from the scalp (waived if your doll is sent for a full custom, ie. reroot and faceup)
- $5 for scalp removal from doll (waived if your doll is sent for a full custom, ie. reroot and faceup)
- $15 fee for mohair processing. I will work with ANY kind of mohair you like with the exception of hair raw in the grease, but for hair that is not processed and lined up, like Sue's hair from mohairhouse, there is considerable time put into combing out the vegetable matter and tangles.
- $10 for a fully rooted center part like Merry Skier.
- $30 for mohair rehab on an older reroot. This involves washing, detangling and conditioning your dolls scalp and airing it to dry. Add $10 if you'd like her hair to be flatironed or have fat sausage curls.
- $30 for saran/nylon highlights plus cost of supplies
- $20 for haircut
- $15 for bangs

Neo Face

-$225 full makeover with upgrade of open mouth and sculpted teeth

- $75 ethnic paint job. This includes substituting another type doll body (I have many kinds) that are naturally darker, modified to fit the blythe head, and painting the head to match. If you want the body to be a Pure Neemo, the same charge applies and the body will need to be supplied at your cost.

Making Headway!

I'm trying to move my commissions list along as fast as I humanly can.  I also have to make time to make product for my table at BlytheCon 2012 in Dallas. I'll be selling custom dolls, reroots, handpainted eyechips, fabric and possibly some clothes.  I will also be consigning a bit of product at my table for my friends Sue of Mohairhouse and Rachael (jemgirl) who makes wonderful shoes, glasses and other products for Blythe, middie, Monster High and many of our other favorite dolls.

I have more reroots than faceups on my plate right now, so there is a possibility that I may take a few more faceups. I will make a post here, flickr, BK and probably Twitter if I decide to take more faceups.

Working my fingers to the bone!

I have a lot of projects on my plate at the moment, many of them reroots. I've done so many in a row that my poor thumbnail is non existent! It might sound silly, but I really need that darned thumbnail to pull knots tight. I'm going to take a day or two off of reroots and work on other projects- moving some customs out (both commissions and girls for sale).

Girls I'll have for sale soon will be:

Simply Vanilla custom
BlackBerryBush custom
fbl custom with green hair

An exciting announcement!

The list was posted today - and I am officially a vendor for BlytheCon 2012 in Dallas!  I will have several customs available for adoption at that time as well as coolcat scalps already rooted with mohair or alpaca and handpainted eyechips.  I am also striving to get back into my clothing line, so hopefully I will have clothing for sale there as well as a variety of fabrics to sell.

If there is anything you'd like to see at my stall, please let me know! Lengths or colors of mohair, types of clothing, colors of eyechips or styles of customs.  I'm dying to see everyone!

New projects!

In between commissions I'm always working on new projects. What I have on the horizon are Monster High Blythe doll customs of Frankie Stein, Draculaura, and Ghoulia!  I will also have a Sunshine Holiday rerooted in hot pink mohair and a Lalaloopsy girl coming sooner than the Monster High girls. Keep an eye out for these fun projects!

A word about the commission list

Take heart! I know that some people get frustrated when they want to send their doll off to get customized and can't find anyone with an open commissions list. I'm doing my best to balance commissions with girls that I put up for adoption.  Sometimes people ask for a commission slot before they have the doll to work on, so this list is not really in any order other than who contacted me first. If one customer has a delay and another person farther down the line has their doll already here with me, I will start that work while waiting on the first person.

So if you'd like some work done and you think my list looks long, please drop me a line at cosmeticgenius1@yahoo.com or comment on a post and I'll let you know if there's an open window or the appoximate wait time.
