I got my gift from the Adult Fans of Monster High Secret Santa gift exchange from my amazing Santa Angel Juarez: Amigurumi bear and voodoo doll, monster food, doll earrings and custom gory Ghoulia doll I named “Angel”.
I am SO EXCITED! I have admired/obsessed over Angel’s work for so long and I am still in shock that I finally own one of her amazing creations. I am one happy ghoul!!! :D <3
I will take more (better quality) pics soon. For now, check out more of Angel’s amazing work:
Here are some more shots of my custom lagoona by Raquel Celmente!!!All these pictures belong to her.
Q:Hey Loren, have you ever worked with urethane rubber/flexible resin before? I just found out about it today, and my first thoughts were "why aren't people using this?", especially for shoes and hands. Wish I could link the site I found this at directly >_> if you go to alumiliteDOTcom, look at products->casting resins, and it's under flexible resin.
Yes, we’ve used flexible resin. It’s one of the hardest products to use. It almost always has a very short pot life, which means it is often curing before you can get your molds filled. We have some of the stuff and planned on using it for shoes, but we’re avoiding straight recasts. One of the reasons being cost. The higher difficulty and material costs of the flex would lead to cost to the consumer. I think people would be more willing to pay extra for designs they can’t get elsewhere.
As for hands, most people don’t know how to handle joints. It is definitely more than just molding them. :)
We recently received a message from our supplier about a brand new product that might work even better. We’ll have to check on the pot life and material costs to see if this is something we will use.
Thanks for submitting the question!

This is a Jointed Natural Torso designed to be compatible with Monster High CAMs by Mattel. This torso is the same length as the standard torso but a similar heft to the Big Sister torso. She’s curvy and has defined nipples and pubic area. You may have difficulty dressing her in non-stretchy MH clothing but some other doll line’s outfits fit nicely to her curves. http://www.plastic-curves.com/fashion-doll-scale/mh-body-parts/jointed-doll-torso.html
