25) Have you ever modded a doll? (Do you think that you would?)

Well, I've taken every single one of them apart to restring at some point, and I've wired the Bluefairy dolls. Stupid bolts for the S-hooks have come out a couple of times and I've had to repair those (quick fix, just annoying). All the eyes have been switched out because I don't like the way acrylic eyes photograph. Wouldn't put it past me to attempt other modifications in time, although I'd probably either get some cheaper doll to experiment on, or wait until something breaks. I'd like to try seam-sanding at some point if I have time, but that would be a summer project. It's too cold here most of the year to do that sort of work.

26) Done your own faceups? (Again, do you think you’d do that?)

No. Part of me would like to, but I've never been good at painting or choosing colors. I often ask my husband for advice when picking colors as he has a better eye for such things. That would also be a case where I'd have to get a cheap/free head to experiment on. I'm not bad at drawing or calligraphy, but painting has never been easy for me. I think I'd prefer to use my energy towards something I'm better at (sewing) and leave the face-ups to those who are really good at it. But never say never!

Random pic today is of Luca, who I subjected to a frou-frou lace shirt for Valentine's Day. He did not appreciate it!
