Monster High Doll Mod - Helena 3 by tbdoll Monster High Doll Mod - Helena 3 by tbdoll
My second Monster High custom! For this one I took a Gloom Beach Frankie Stein and turned her into Helena, from the My Chemical Romance video of the same name.

I felt like Frankie had the perfect face mold for Helena and this was my first try completely repainting a doll. I used the airbrush that I got from *Shoutai for this. The paint seemed to take to her pretty well, although it is sort of cracked on the side of her face and chipping around her joints. I also discovered that trying to put her in the stand without any clothing over the paint caused the paint to be scraped off by the stand. Luckily her dress covers this.

The nice thing about painting the doll first is that colored pencil takes to the face LOADS better when there's paint coating it first.

Anyway, Helena is wearing a dress and veil I made out of an old homecoming dress I got from the thrift store. She's also wearing a dark brown liv wig.

Her roses are hand made out of sculpey.

Her left (our right) shoe came out loads better than the other one. You can't see in any of the pictures I took but the right shoe does not actually have a heel. Oops.

Oh I hadn't considered the IDLY girl, she might be fun. I had been suggested Mother War before but I don't know how I'd do her gas mask!

Thank you!

I did not know that was her official name, does her lover have an official name as well?

Lol, well, thank you for the thought! Maybe some day.

This is honestly one of the best things I've ever seen! It's a combination of two of my favorite things: Monster High dolls & MCR! The repaint is like flawless! I almost didn't even know she was formally a Frankie Stein. Such a great & beautiful custom. :)

Sorry, but I can't afford to send dolls over to the UK without being paid back for the cost! Good luck with your doll hunt.
